  1. No, there's no benefit in any specialization for an undergraduate BSc degree. Take Life Sciences, get good marks, be less stressed, and don't worry about what other people think.
  2. Thanks for doing this Q&A. You mentioned that your clinical experience wasn't the best at UWO and I can certainly agree with that, so what did you do to help you gain confidence while practicing as an associate? Are there CE courses that you took or would've taken in hindsight pre- and post-graduation? What are things we can do to help bring us up to speed? If you were hiring a new grad as an associate today, how much importance would you place on clinical experience and/or what would you want to know?
  3. Nah, this isn't really true. Pretty similar experience for both schools. At the end of the day, both schools pale in comparison to American schools when it comes to clinical experience. Just choose the school you like more if you have the choice.
  4. E.g. 6 out of the 10 courses in 3rd year must be 3rd (or 4th) year level courses.
  5. I had this exact same thought a few years ago when I was dealing with the unfairness of the DAT scaling, but it wasn't this bad... I hope you guys can finally get CDA to change it, because that "scale" actually makes no sense and gives such an unfair disadvantage to certain applicants.
  6. You should definitely get an interview. Your dad being an alumnus isn't relevant, though maybe you could mention that during your interview if it comes up.
  7. Study really hard the next two years to earn a shot at Western. For ECs, do things you enjoy, volunteer, shadow. Be well-rounded.
  8. I can confirm there's been waitlist movement, but not sure how much so far.
  9. You'd have a good chance at UWO if you did a full course load 5th year (with 3.0/5.0 courses at 3rd year level or above), especially since you'd have another year to bolster your autobiographical sketch.
  10. Don't worry, they won't call if you were accepted right away and not waitlisted.
  11. Congrats to those accepted! Here's the Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2087663754835751/
  12. I got the money just from the letter of acceptance too from Scotia in May last year. Either they changed their policies or it depends on the branch. You should mention that other branches do this and have them look into it, or contact the designated advisor that does dent LOCs and ask them about it.
  13. Maybe it had to do with the new rules, like having 3.0/5.0 courses of the same year, or needing >75 in physiology/orgo/biochem?
  14. This is basically what I did and it worked really well.
