  1. Hey guys, Just wondering if anyone was able to actually change/reschedule their DAT exam dates? Thanks!
  2. Ditto. Looks like our first year of the fast track program doesn't meet the 3/5 rule, UNLESS you add 3rd year levels courses on top of what you are already taking.
  3. Hey there! So I'm in the fast track program as well (final year), I contacted Ryerson and they basically said we would have to map out our courses with the 4 year program (2018 and prior) to know exactly which year our courses are. But they basically said that our first year in the fast track program as basically year 1 and year 2 courses combined, and our final year is a combination of 3rd and 4th year courses. I don't know about you, but looking at the courses we've taken so far, i don't think we meet Western's requirements - not for our first year of our program at least, unless you t
  4. As someone who has taken psychology at York, I definitely found it to be a GPA booster (granted you put in the work). Questions on midterms are usually multiple choice questions, very objective and even IF you have a few short answer questions there are no surprises (straight off the slides or the Prof will let you know which pages the answers are before hand for e.g Health psychology). If medicine is truly your goal, you will find a way. Just have to protect your mental health and tone out the haters that WILL tell you what your doing is unwise. As long as you understand this time round
  5. How to protect my mental health. What's a cause you believe in?
  6. anyone who has knowledge on this matter, I would truly appreciate your advice!
  7. one last question, say I get a GPA of 4 in my third year, would I competitive to apply to Queens and Western? (using my second year of 3.77 and third year of 4?)
  8. Thank you so much for your thoughts Richard! The gap year in my second undergraduate degree was just haunting me but you are right - it shouldn't matter in the long run as long as I do really well in my last 2 (or 3) years. Thank you again
  9. Hi guys, I literally have no one I can talk to about being a non traditional applicant and was lucky enough to come across this website and connect with others who have gone down this path. So here I am in a bit of a dilemma and was hoping to get some advice, before literally my head explodes due to over thinking :S To start off I pretty much tanked my first undergraduate degree. It was only in my last year I tried a different approach to studying and managed a GPA of 3.2 - I know it's still pretty low but it gave me some hope that I might just be able to do this... I still was
  10. John Galt MD, thank you yet again! Owe you bigtime! One last question though did you have presentations in these classes? If so, were they heavily and strictly weighted? (I h-a-t-e presentations :S)
  11. Haha that's what I'm trying to figure out myself.. preferably one without presentations...please let me know if you find any!
  12. Hey guys, so i was reading in the news today about how the Ontario government is to cut funding to Toronto Public Health. I wonder how this would effect job prospects as a future public health inspector, especially for us students planning to take public health as a second undergraduate degree....
