  1. Based on my experience, there would be no overlap between the start of school and the end of the program if you complete the program on a full-time basis and in alignment with the layout of the program. For instance, for every student graduating at the October ceremony during my year, all the practicums were completed by mid-August at the very latest (I completed mine by the end of July). So I don't think the MPH program would conflict with the start of med school (unless you are applying to a school that starts July like U of Calgary).

  12. After speaking with admissions a few times, it seems that OOP who meet the minimum GPA and MCAT thresholds are then scored based on their maritime connection essay (which is not the supplemental).
  13. Is anyone having difficulty with their Dal Online? When I go to log in it just brings me to a page to start another application.
  14. I think as long as on your Dal Online it shows you paid the 70 you are fine. There is an additional fee if you get an interview.
