  1. Hi there, I am a M4 interested in IM and hoping to couples match with a partner looking to do regional/rural fam med. The issue we are finding is that a lot of regional rural programs are non-commutable from the city. Regional rural training is very imp to my partner as they wish to do rural locums after training and feel they would be most confident with training at such sites. Can anyone offer insight how urban fam med grads found working for rural/regional locums after training ? Also if you have, or know of couples who matched to IM and regional/rural fam med, what were the loca

  3. Hello everyone, As I approach fourth year, I"m hoping to look into organizing my electives in IM for the final year. Are there certain schools + rotations that were well received? Where is CTU a good choice? Furthermore, what subspecialties provide a good experience? I know for selective students in sub-speciality IM, it's a hit or miss because you don't know the structure of your two weeks beforehand or how much facetime you would get with an attending. I just want to know which experiences have been worthwhile, i..e ID at Western, Cardio at Ottawa etc.? Also if I am to consider p
  4. Congratulations!!! If you have an unspecific campus offer it is due to the fact that Schulich sends out more offers than seats during the first round. Most students have gotten their preferred campus after the offer acceptance date passes (late May), but it honestly depends and the Admissions Office does not disclose how the campus allocation works. With that being said, I don't think you will get information on the location before the first deadline for accepting offers since at this point they are trying to process acceptance and send out offers to those on the wait-list. There is
  5. I don't know how useful that piece of information would be to you. In addition to the application, applicants require an essay submission describing their financial need and how they have been dealing with their situation. To my knowledge, the committee that gives the scholarship would probably consider those factors as well before handing out the scholarships. Also the class composition changes from year to year so it is dependent on that. If you are factoring this scholarship into your decision to attend Schulich, my only help to you is that scholarships are decided on once the school
  6. You should contact the Schulich Admissions Office and try to submit an application if you can. The application is quite extensive requiring you to list all your assets, parents' assets and income to demonstrate the financial aid. Med school is expensive but individuals have differing levels of supports from family/friends/banks etc. The school does their best to help those in most need.
  7. Not at this point you cannot. Western will be undergoing a curriculum change for the class of 2023, which MAY offer opportunities for a Master's but that will require taking a year off to meet the requirements. I highly doubt a concurrent Master's can be pursued.
  8. Result: Accepted wGPA: 3.97 MCAT: 130/128/131/128 (517) ECs: I did things I enjoy. 9 years with one organization, worked part-time all throughout undergrad, dabbled in clinical and basic science research (various poster publications, no manuscripts atm), involved with my local cultural community In may opinion, my ECs were less 'competitive' than what I've heard from others applying to med. I never really had the money to go abroad or volunteer a lot because I had to work most of the time. I also do not have any special talents, no musical skills, no dancing, no sports...nothi

  11. Thank you for the advice everyone! Not having that many friends and family in medicine, it's tough to get perspective about this issue - glad this forum exists! I agree money should not be an issue motivating me to choose either school, both schools are great and I'm glad to have received the chance to consider either one. I'm not sure where I would like to be in my future, I think I will use medical school to decide that fact. My goals are met with Western, so I will be choosing to stay in London!
  12. Hi! I currently have offers from two schools, UofT and one school in my hometown. I did my undergrad in my hometown living at home and if I choose to attend medical school here would continue to do the same. I really like UofT's program, the new curriculum seems exciting as well as the hospitals and of course the city. However, when making my 4 year expense projection I realized the debt I would incur at UofT is substantially higher. It just scared to me to think about that much debt. I basically paid my way through undergrad with scholarships and a job. I understand medical school
  13. Has anyone received confirmation about the scholarship? I am waiting to hear back from Schulich about the scholarship so I can decide which school I will be accepting to. I don't want to be pushing too close to the final acceptance date.
  14. Does anyone have an idea how many total Schulich scholarships are available per year?
