  1. This question is for all current physio students- I have applied to quite a few physio programs this year and wanted to know how possible it is to qualify for a scholarship set aside for PT students? I have gone through a couple of websites and the number of scholarships available is pretty good when looking at the class-size. But I feel like current students would have a better idea of what it actually looks like. I look forward to hearing your thoughts! Thanks
  2. Hi Everyone, This question is mainly for physio students currently studying at Western. How are you finding the program in regards to teaching techniques and classroom environment? Do you feel like you have a wide variety of placement opportunities in a wide range of settings? I have heard that Western helps students placed outside of London by giving them $600 per placement. Is this true? Are there other opportunities for scholarships etc. I have seen quite a bit on the website but would like to hear others personal experiences as well. Also, how is the living situation in London? Is there a way to find other PT students to rent with, hopefully closer to campus? What about extra-curricular experiences? Also, I have heard that some PT programs are on a pass/fail basis, giving greater emphasis on collaboration and team-work. Would you describe Western's program to be like that? Thank you all. I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
  3. I am a high school student who is considering to accept Ryerson’s Biomedical Sciences program. I have been accepted to Western Health Sciences, Brock Medical Sciences (and their MedPlus extra program which is really good), Laurier Health Sciences, Uft Life Sci, Carleton Health Sci, and McMaster Life Sci. My major concerns involve the arrangement of the coop terms. Medical Schools in Canada require at least two school semesters to be consecutive for students enrolled into coop programs. In Ryerson, semesters 5 and 6 are separated by three work terms. I wanted to know if I would be able to keep semesters 5 and 6 together, then have them followed by the three coop terms. On the other hand, if I choose not to take coop, would I be at a disadvantage since most of the research positions will be taken by the coop students? Additionally, I will be a commuting student and would like to know the general timings of the lectures, tutorials and labs last year. Lastly, are there any additional resources at Ryerson that would help me with the MCAT preparation, or the general application of medical school (including volunteering and job shadowing opportunities)? Even for volunteer research places downtown, won't I be competing with UFT students? ANY help and info on Ryerson graduates in med school would help. My goal is to go to a small university where I stand out. I know people in med schools from all universities except ryerson! My financial situation isn't so great either and therefore Ryerson helps. I have to accept an offer by next week.

  6. www.MedsHousing.com Listing ID #0017197 London,ON-Downtown Condo Living with a Touch of Luxury – 600 Talbot St. 600 Talbot Street, London, ON, Canada By far, this is one of the nicest condo buildings and the very best location (walk score 88) in downtown London. Sip your morning coffee on your balcony nestled among the tree tops and overlooking a quiet residential street. Enjoy cooking in your modern kitchen with its new stainless steel appliances, lots of counter (granite) and cupboard space and room for a small table. The large, open concept, living, dining, study/den area presents lots of possibilities and is bathed with natural light as one entire (almost) wall is glass windows and glass doors. The two bedrooms (new laminate flooring) are spacious with large windows and natural light. There’s nothing more convenient than having a second bathroom (master bedroom ensuite). Coming in 2nd for convenience is your storage room with a combination washer-dryer. Amenities include a beautiful (salt water) indoor pool with hot tub, sauna, and change rooms with showers. Condo gym with treadmills, elliptical, and weight machine. There’s a large and free outdoor parking lot for your visitors – a rarity in the heart of downtown London. Perfectly located for the medical community. It’s a 5-min. walk to the bus stop where either Bus #6 or Bus #13 (that’s right, if you miss one, the other will be by shortly) will get you to the following locations fast: Schulich School of Medicine/LHSC-University Hospital (12 min.); LHSC-Victoria Hospital (18 min.) St. Joseph’s Health Care (5 min.). If you prefer to cycle: Schulich School of Medicine/University Hospital (13 min.); LHSC-Victoria Hospital (19 min.); St. Joseph’s Health Care (7 min.) If you take a car (or Uber/taxi): Schulich School of Medicine/University Hospital (8 min.); LHSC-Victoria Hospital (11 min.); St. Joseph’s Health Care (4 min.). You don’t need a car. But if you have one, just leave it in the underground parking garage (one parking spot included). That’s because everything else is within easy walking distance in a really nice part of downtown London. Nearby grocery shopping includes (11-min. walk) Covent Garden Market where you can get fresh produce, baked goods, meats, fish, gourmet foods, and/or explore an assortment of vendors and restaurants. The less interesting ValuMart is a 13-min. walk. Richmond Row with its many restaurants, varied shops, bars and nightlife is a 7-min. walk. The beautiful Victoria Park with its summer music and arts festivals and winter skating rink is a 6-min. walk. Take in a concert, a hockey (Junior A: London Knights) game, or a pro (sort of) basketball game at Budweiser Gardens (10-min. walk). If you just want to enjoy nature, it’s a 3-min. walk to the paved pathway (Thames Valley Parkway – TVP) that winds its way (40 km. total) along the Thames River through multiple parks. The TVP also traverses Western University so you can cycle to school/work (12-minute) using this pathway. If you don't have a car but occasionally need one, a zipcar location is only a 4-minute walk away. Business details: Rental application, references, and credit check are required. Available Aug 15th. Or Sept. 1st. $1530/mo. plus utilities (heat/electricity). 12-month lease required. For more information contact Allan through MedsHousing.com web site. I look forward to hearing from you. Price local currency : $1,530/mo
  7. I've been debating between these two courses for the past 2 days and can't come to a conclusion. I'm looking for the easier course (as bad as it sounds) because I have a packed schedule and would appreciate a break. Should I take Classics 1000 with Steinbock (11:30 am - 12:30 pm on M,W,F) or Lamari (7 pm - 10 pm on T)? I prefer taking it in the morning but I've heard that Lamari is easier. Should I take psych 1000 with Mike instead of Classics 1000? Thanks in advance!
  8. I am going into my second year at Western and I decided to make a mock timetable for my third and fourth years of university. I am currently in medical science and I am planning to also pursue a minor or diploma in french as well. However, when making my mock timetable for fourth year I found that a mandatory course for the honours specialization I am interested in is only available at the same time as a mandatory french course which also only occurs at that one time. Obviously, this isn't an issue for me right now, but the class times tend to be consistent from year to year so this can be an issue for me in the future. I was wondering if anyone has pursued, for example, a double major that had mandatory courses for each major conflicting? Also, because this is an issue for the future, if I notify academic counselling from now do you think they could avoid them being in the same time slot in following years? Unfortunately, both of these courses seem like classes where attendance will be necessary so enrolling in both but only attending one will probably not be an option.
  9. Hey Everyone! I'm currently trying to decide between Western University and Queen's for the Medical Science and Life Science programs. I'm stuck between the two schools as I know they are very similar so I'm hoping I can get some feedback from you all that can help make my decision a little easier. Western University: Pros: -The Medical Science program seems rather specialized compared to Queen's -I can graduate with my Bachelor's of Medical Science rather than just a B.Sc -The Medical Science program is ran by Schulich Medical School so I feel like I would be getting the best of the best in terms of academics -Better dorms -They seem to have A LOT of clubs and recreational groups to participate in -Western is ranked higher Cons: -I've heard Western is a huge party school and I think it would be harder to focus if everyone around you is going out all the time -I've been told that first year is very difficult -The campus isn't as close knit as Queen's -I've been told that Western is very much like a high school and can tend to be a little clique-y Queen's University Pros: -I've heard the people at Queen's are a little more academically focused -The more "conservative" school of the two -Kingston -The campus is close knit and so pretty! -Smaller class sizes -I've heard Queen's is fairly generous in terms of bursaries.. Not too sure of this though Cons: -I haven't heard as many things about the Life Science program itself in comparison to the MedSci program.. -Supposedly Queen's sends less people into Medicine than Western -I've heard the science programs can be very competitive My long term goal right now is to get into medicine after undergrad so I'm hoping to attend wherever will best prepare me for the MCAT and my future in general. Also, please correct me if some of my pros or cons are incorrect as a lot of my information was passed down onto me from others. All advice and input is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
