  1. Hi there, I am a recent graduate of the U of M program. The selection process is fairly holistic. Everything will give you points Ie. GPA, courses they suggest taking, interview, past experiences. Definitely give it a shot. Best of luck!
  2. Hi there, I'm at U of M in 1st year. To confirm the previous posts, RBC is what I ended up going with. I was approved for the full amount in the end. I tried working with CIBC for a bit, but in the end they couldn't offer enough. However, I'm sure if you worked with them long enough they would be willing to match RBC. Might take some patience though. I also applied for Manitoba and Canada student loans and was able to secure some funding from there as well. Further, make sure you apply for U of M bursaries.. I was able to get a chunk from there as well. As for salary potential - the U o
  3. Hey manitobapa, Congrats on the acceptance! I am in 1st year right now in the program, so if you have any questions regarding books, fees, student loans, what to expect, etc etc. Just send me a message!
  4. Just to clarify, it was out of 4 (at least that's what we were told during orientation week). I'm guessing they converted it to the 4 b/c we have a lot of applicants who aren't from U of M. But, yea... 3.87/4. As was stated earlier, they look at more than just grades. It really is a complete package. Best of luck everyone!
  5. Just to add to that, the director of our program confirmed today that there is still an interview component to the application.
  6. Hi there, I am entering the PA program @ U of M in September and am wondering if any current students can provide some insight into what they did for funding the program. Where you able to get a loan through Manitob Studen Aid/Federal funding? Lines of Credit - Professional or just regular student line of credit? Scholarships? Also I am looking at a place near HSC due to the distance I would have to travel in for classes, however if funding is going to be tight it may be better to stay at home.. The program is obviously intense and I will need to spend a good chunk of time study
  7. They generally take only 12 out of ~120 applicants. They interview about 30 or so.. it's fairly competitve. Not really sure what gpa will land you an interview..Since they pull from the same applicant group as med (meaning a lot of people apply to both) I'd imagine that it's around a 4.0.
  8. Manitoba will give some feedback as well.
  9. Rejected IP, Rural, One publication AGPA: ~3.9 MCAT: 10.2 MMI: Practiced quite a bit, but after I felt as though it could have gone better. In the end it was tough to say, because I felt I had some good stations and some poor ones (much like everyone else). Must have been my downfall in the end. Congrats to those accepted!
  10. I'm a little confused by the reference letter process now... I think they recently updated their admissions home page.. "In January 2013, applicants will be advised if they are being considered for an interview. The Multiple Mini Interviews and Aboriginal Panel Interviews will be conducted March 2, 3 & 9, 2013. The Admissions Committee will solicit letters of reference only for those applicants who will be invited for interview; this will be done prior to the interview dates. Applicants who are not being considered for interview will be notified in late January or early February 201
