  1. This was very informative. I appreciate you taking the time to write back. Just out of curiosity, what was your major in University? And if you don't mind, would you be able to give some examples of extracurriculars/volunteering you did? Thanks
  2. Thanks for the post. I asked another poster this, but how do you go about proving to the admissions team that you have completed the required patient hours?
  3. Have you heard of Medical Schools "frowning" upon nursing applicants? I was once told this is true because they see it as a opportunity lost for someone who would have been a great nurse. Also how do you prove to the PA admission members you have completed the required patient care hours? Thanks
  4. Hey guy's, I understand that there is a required amount of direct patient care to become a PA and was just wondering how some of you manage to achieve those hours. I have been considering doing Nursing first because it would allow me to get some of those hours through placement. Has anyone ever heard of anyone doing this? And just to be sure, what is the exact amount of hours needed with patients in order to be admissible to a PA program here in Canada.
  5. I saw someone mention something about "First Nurse Assist" in one of my other post. I wanted to make an individual post regarding this topic. Can someone please explain to me what a "First Nurse Assist" is or "Assistant." To me it seems like it is in correlation with perioperative nursing but I am not sure. Thank you for your help.
  6. Yes, I do agree that the essay was definitely bias. But, that is the point of an essay is to defend your point and his case it is that "People miscalculate what there getting in to when they choose Medicine as a career" but once again, I am not agreeing or disagreeing with him. It is simply posted on here for people to read if they choose to. Thank you for your opinion though.
  7. I was reading through some stuff on the internet last night. During that time, I came across a very strong essay written by a young man. I encourage everyone who is considering Medical School to read it. Please note that I am absolutely certain this essay will raise arguments. I want everyone to understand that I never said I was agreeing or disagreeing with the young man who wrote this. I am simply putting this essay on premed because I believe there are a lot of people on here who would like to read it. Once again, please make sure to read the whole thing. Let me know what you think.
  8. Hey guy's, so I use to post on here a lot about becoming a Doctor however my mind changes a lot. My girlfriend has recently been accepted to the nursing program at Durham college. Subsequently, she will be applying to UOIT to finish a degree in nursing. She brought it to my attention that I should look in to nursing because there is a high demand for them right now, and possibly an even higher demand for male nurses. I just want to know what all of you think. What does a career in nursing as a male entail? Are they looked at differently? Is their salary different? It seems like an exc
  9. Thanks future_doc. P.S if you don't mind me asking, what year are you in?
  10. Yes, I absolutely agree. I wish I learned how to play piano when I was younger. As far as photography, I think if I was ever asked what my hobbie(s) were in an interview, it could create a interesting conversation.
  11. Hey guy's, so I am reading this book about getting in to Medical School. The person who wrote it is a former UCLA admissions committee member. A big thing that he talks about is having a hobby, something that "describes" you as a individual person. This apparently is a huge benefit to have along with all your ER'S and volunteering etc. What I am interested in knowing is what all of you on premed101 do for a hobby? I recently started getting into photography and I seem to really like it. Looking forward to hearing back from all of you.
  12. Hey guys, I just want to know when your WHOLE medical school application has to be submitted (letters of recommendation, personal statement, all your activities etc). I know this is probably posted somewhere else, but like usual I would rather here it from someone who is on this website. As always, thanks so much.
  13. I know this is probably something I should know. I figured I would verify it with all of you guy's. I have seen a couple different dates posted on the internet but was unsure if they were right. So, my question to you is "What day's do students in Canada take the MCAT?" Also, I was wondering when is an ideal to start studying for them? I know you guy's can help me, thank you and I look forward to hearing back from you.
  14. There is a program for this at Algonquin college.
  15. Thanks for the advice, and your right I did say it wasn't on my mind anymore in another post but I lied it is and probably always will be.
