  1. Thought I'd start a thread for all things wait list. Anyone know how roughly how many people are on the wait list/how many make it off?
  2. I am looking to choose a program between these offers. My end goal is med school, but i want a university where it’ll be easy to achieve that goal and gpa without becoming depressed and drained from studying 24/7. I would also like a good atmosphere and one that is welcoming to diverse students as i am a POC. Which program is best suited for me?

  4. Hi! I have created this thread as I am deciding between UofT, Queens, and McMaster for OT (and I am sure others are as well). I was wondering if any current OT students or graduates would be able to answer some of the questions I had or just share some of their experiences at these schools. So far from my own research I gathered the following: UofT seems to have more of a research focus, with a couple of the courses being research-based (e.g. learning methodologies, how to write a proposal). They also have LEAP placements where one can be placed where there is no OT present or OT role. Queens seems to have a mental health and communication focus (one mandatory placement in mental health). It also seems their program is shorter than the others (it can potentially end in June depending on when we schedule our last placement), and has 4 terms of classes rather than 5 like the other schools. I think they also say not to expect all fieldwork to take place in Kingston? McMaster- I don't know a lot about them other than problem based learning- which I am still trying to wrap my head around what that is, would appreciate if someone could explain PBL to me! Please correct me if I am wrong with any of the above info and I would appreciate if current students or grads could share their experiences.
  5. I received my UofT invitation yesterday for March 28th(completely caught off-guard by this!). I'm hoping if anyone who has experience with the Modified Personal Interview (MPI) style could give me any tips or resources on preparation since it seems quite different from the rest of Med schools (MMI, panel). Additionally, if there's anyone looking to practise in Vancouver (or surrounding cities), we could start a practice group. Also more than happy to practise online via skype. This is my first time applying and the only invitation I've received, so I have no prior experience with the process. I would be so grateful for any tips as I'm feeling quite anxious. Thank you so much in advance!
  6. Hey OT/PT hopefuls, I am anxiously awaiting to hear back about interview invitations from various PT Schools across Canada. I study in a small town so there are not many other prospective PT/OT students around to do mock interviews, and I was wondering if anyone would be interested in making a facebook group (or similar) where we do video chats with Mock MMI/Answer Feedback? I've read about the importance of actually practicing answering questions and think this could be very helpful for students in a similar situation! *given that most if not all in-person interviews are cancelled I did not make a group, but may be a great idea for next year!*
  7. I have to complete 1 chemistry and 2 physics courses to open some doors applications wise. Would taking courses online be an appropriate way to approach this? Specifically I'm wondering if UofA accepts online physics courses (do they care about lab?) any help appreciated
  8. Hello, I am applying to university soon and I would like to stay in Toronto as much as possible. For all my life, I have always been considering the traditional route of taking Life sciences to go to Med school, but my options have opened ever since I started to play the harp. I am graduating from the IB program and I want to avoid workload stress however, I do understand that taking music as a major will require a lot of my time, I heard, double the amount as normal undergrads do. Despite that, I also play music as a form of de-stressing and I go to it when I don't want to study. I also heard that there are a lot of advantages with being a music major, with it improving your likelihood in getting into university because of uniqueness, dexterity, reflectivity etc. I want to become a coroner so I definitely have to take Med school. I'm not actual sure how university works with all the majors, minors, specialists, degrees etc. So considering that I want to have the minimum amount of stress while still having the required courses for Med school, what would be the best options for me? Major in music and take bio courses during summer school? (yikes) Take Life sciences and somehow find a way to do music (um?) or are there any options? If I take music as a major, would I have to take a gap year before I get into med school? Thank you so much!
  9. Hello! I have the opportunity this summer to have my own research project. It will likely be a 9-5 with about 3 hours of commute a day. Is it possible to perform well on the MCAT while doing this (520+ with a 129+ CARS)? or should I just use my summer to study full time (summer meaning may-august exactly, looking to write at end of august). As a reference, by the end of this year (2nd year), I would have taken: 2 courses gen chem 2 courses anatomy/physiology 1 course biochem 1 course organic chem 1 course physics (basically kinematics and dynamics only) 1 course sociology I have a choice to do my research the summer after, and don't have to do it this summer.
  10. Hi everyone, I am currently a second year student at UOttawa in Biomedical sciences. My GPA for first year was very low due to mental health reasons, in fact, it was so low that I was put on academic suspension for second year. In my school, you can still take classes while you're on academic suspension, but they count as "academic upgrading" classes. So far, I am doing really well in my classes, I've gotten A+'s on all of my midterms. Assuming the best, assuming I get a 4.0 in every single class for 2nd, 3rd and 4th year, and end up with a 3.8+ GPA (repeating the classes I didn't do well in in the summer to replace the grades) do I still have a chance in getting into UofT's med school? I am doing many extracurriculars, doctor shadowing, and plan on doing some research work as well. Is my academic suspension/withdrawal going to be visible on my transcript? If it is, is it completely impossible to get into med school with it on my transcript, even if I get a very high GPA, very high MCAT score and many extracurriculars?
  11. Hi everyone, seeing as admissions has informed me that letters will be sent out “tomorrow at the latest,” I figured it’s that time of year again: status: cGPA: DAT: Self-perceived interview thoughts: regardless of the outcome guys, we came a long way and that’s something admirable!
  12. Hey guys, for the DAT that's scheduled in UofT, is it the St.George campus where we write it? I live pretty far so I was thinking about getting an AirBnB and wondering which campus it's on. Thank you!
  13. Hi guys, is it true that to get an interview for UofT you have to have a minimum GPA of 3.85?

  17. I've been accepted to both schools. (I'm from BC) This is not a question about weather, city, traffic. I'd like to hear from students who have been to either school. UBC students, I'm not too thrilled to do PBL. UofT students, the class is very large. Do you get stressed easily as a result of waiting in lines? ANY info about the actual school environment and curriculum is highly appreciated.
  18. Hi, I am a UofT St George first year student looking forward to applying both Canadian and US Med Schools. May I get your kind help on addressing my following concerns: 1) Since I have to take 1 year full English, I am thinking to take a summer course at US University to fulfill the requirement. Do you think it may help to build my ties with US ? I do not want to take this course at my home University as I am afraid it will pull down my GPA. is there any comments from Canadian student at Ontario Universities who has taken summer course at US University for applying US med schools? 2) Is it achievable to get A+ or A from UTSG English course like ENG1001G1? any recommendation on English course at UTSG that can help my GPA or at least not hurting it? 3) If I decide to take 1 full year English course at Ontario, can I take it at UofT Scarborough or Ryerson and submit the grade to US schools but not to Ontario schools? will it look odd? 3) is it doable to get a A+ in UTSG organic chemistry? Do we need to take 1 full year of organic chemistry if we want to play safe in applying US med schools? is there any course recommendation in organic chemistry at UTSG? 4) I took 2 phy/ 2chem/2 bio/2 math/psychology /sociology in my first year. Any suggestions in drafting my second /third/fourth years courses map to suit the US applications? any course recommendation on anatomy/biochem/physiology or things I have to be aware of? 5) I am thinking to choose Immunology or cell biology or global health as my major. In terms of achieving high GPA in UTSG, which one is a better choice. Is there any other majors that is more likely for one to achieve high GPA? 6) How can I get more premed support at UTSG? I feel there is not much advice in campus. Appreciate some UTSG alumni who have successfully got in US med schools would show me the light. Many thanks for your kind help.
  19. So... deep breath that it is finally over. The process was pretty relaxed and overall well done in my opinion. Now we have the next two weeks to coast and wait for our decision. How is everyone feeling?
  20. I applied to the MPH: Social and Behavioural Health Sciences program for Fall 2019. The website says decisions will be given in March. However, Last year's cohort received their decisions mid-April. I was wondering if anyone who has aplied to any of the MPH programs at Dalla Lana for 2019 or in past years know when 2019's decisions will be snet out. Or if you would like to share when you heard back from them in previous years, that would be extremely helpful as well. If you received a rejection, then please share some statistics of why you think you may have been rejected so it is helpful for the rest of us. Thanks guys!
  21. Anyone else suspects invites would come out by the end of today ? Last year, they said end of of Feb, yet we got the invites on the 10th. This year, they said mid January and it’s either this Friday or next Friday imo, given that invites are traditionally released on a Friday, just minutes before 5 pm ... Any input on this ?
  22. Hi everyone, I'm looking to take the above course this term. Does anyone know if the midterm and final have to be supervised? Any further feedback/advice on this course would be appreciated. It loos interesting, but intense. Thanks and good luck!
  23. My top choice is UofT Epi ut its sorta more important for me to get into school next Sept than it is to land my dream school- but then Im also worried about selling myself too short. Is Guelph MSc epi worth it? Any current grads in Epi from there or Western/Queens/UofT able to throw in a dime? Thanks!
  24. Hey guys, I'll be writing the Canadian DAT at UofT this Saturday for the first time and was wondering what to expect when I sit down. How will I be seated, what will I see on the table in front of me, whats the overall atmosphere like? Kind of hoping for a step-by-step from someone who has written so I can calm my nerves a bit! How many pencils will we be given, erasers, blank sheets for rough work?? Also, are we allowed to write on the question sheets, will we be answering on a scantron, is it just a clock or is it a timer?
  25. Hi everyone, I am a consultant/coordinator for a new medical company that is aiming to help residents that have completed or are close to completing their residency take their next steps. One of the things I would like to coordinate is free monthly dinner and learns for residents that would be hosted by guest speakers who work in the field that cover topics which would be most beneficial for residents. The topics I think would be great are: Finding placements after residency, Starting your own clinic, and Medical/legal pitfalls. I also think the dinner and learns would be a great way for residents to make lasting connections. As you are all residents, I am wondering if you could give me feedback on these topics. If you were to attend a free dinner and learn, would you find these topics useful? What other topics would you want to learn more about? Would you even be interested in attending a free dinner and learn? Thank you for taking the time to read this post, I look forward to reading your replies!
