  1. This is going to sound so dumb, but, I wanted to join the Canadian armed forces. Will that be looked upon negatively when I choose to apply later.
  2. Hi everyone, just a couple of months ago I was dead set on completing a Master's degree at University of Toronto and fighting my way through graduate school until I hit medicine. However, my circumstances have drastically changed. I had a terrible fallout from my laboratory.

I knew from that moment on that science was quite possibly the coolest thing ever and I wanted to be a person who did the coolest thing ever. I went to high school in a relatively poor Toronto suburb. OSSLT pass rates were 70%. Drug dealers littered the school. Disrespect for authority. The biggest impediment to learning were other students. I came to a place where people from bad homes gathered and they didn't care for others. Principal has been attacked. Multiple reports of Ar
