  15. Hi You'll be able to enter multiple post-secondary institutions into OMSAS (i.e. Athabasca & your other institution). So just make sure you list the 4 courses you took at Athabasca under that institution name. As for the letter of permission, I don't think they really care about your reason for taking the courses, they just want to see that you've put in all your courses/marks and sent the appropriate transcripts. (I could be wrong about this--others may want to weigh in.) Hope this helps! Good luck with the application!
  16. Hi Here are the essay question prompts: Write an autobiographical sketch about who you are, how you spend your time and why. (3000 characters) Why do you wish to become a physician? (1000 characters) What do you expect from your day to day life as a physician? (1000 characters) Haven't started writing them yet so any advice from past applicants would be appreciated!
