  1. It's the best two years, as long as they both meet criteria of course load and level of study. More details can be found under the GPA section here https://www.schulich.uwo.ca/med_dent_admissions/medicine/admission_requirements.html#grade_point_average
  2. This is also in the FAQ Applicants must be in the final year of the graduate program to be eligible to apply. Deferrals and deadline extensions are NOT granted for completion of a graduate program. Withdrawal from a graduate program during the application year in order to enroll in Schulich Medicine will NOT be acceptable. It sounds like your best bet is to apply next year, once you're in the final year of your MPH. It sounds like it may be looked down upon if they get the idea that you withdrew from the program for the sake of applying this cycle. In regards to going on
  3. Especially for research! Schulich has a mandatory research component, so they make sure to provide you with a list of clinician researchers looking to take on students (you can also just send off emails, docs tend to be pretty responsive to med students in my experience). There will be a lot of support in place to introduce you to these aspects of medical schools and i absolutely promise you're not the only one feeling this way!
  4. Check out this thread from last year, my post has an example of what our schedule looked like in Elentra when we were still in person. Obviously there will be some differences (the large lectures will be online etc) but volume of class time should be about the same as far as i'm aware. Your very first week of content may be a little different - in my first year the first week was entirely lectures with no small groups/clinical skills/anatomy just to introduce us to everything. Weekly schedules are typically released on the friday before at around 4pm which is difficult to get used t
  5. Two years in and I actively avoid logging on to Elentra
  6. The experiential learning is entirely what you make of it. So far I've gotten a poster presentation at a conference and am working on a first author pub from my experiential learning research project so it definitely can be useful for CaRMS in my experience. Much of that career exploration will be set up by you, not by the school. The nice thing is I've found physicians to be much more responsive to random emails from medical students than from premeds, so if you're used to never hearing anything back that will change (not true in all cases but just a general statement) Also want to
  7. If you both have it then it’s probably supposed to be like that! Sorry for the panic
  8. I'm so glad it's helpful! Always happy to chat over DM if you have any more questions about med life here in Windsor
  9. hmm that's odd that it says it's a '3 term program' - mine has never showed up like that before, and it's never auto-populated the date! I haven't done my OSAP for this year yet and it'll be a bit different for me because I'm going into clerkship (which is a longer academic year) so it's totally possible that OSAP has made changes? Maybe another incoming student can chime in. As for the asset thing I said zero in previous years and nobody tried to arrest me or anything so I think it's fine!
  10. You’re a western student now so I don’t see any reason why you wouldn’t be eligible! Also throughout the year you’ll get emails from admin about different scholarship opportunities and the application requirements so keep an eye out for those! :)
  11. Typically the final exam is in the last week of May and Discovery Week runs the first week of June. In first year I put my end date as the friday of the first week of June for financial aid and it was totally fine. Here's an overview of this year's academic schedule https://www.schulich.uwo.ca/medicine/undergraduate/docs/students/Course Assessment Vacation Schedule 2020-21.pdf
  12. Thanks @yobologna He's 100% correct that there are many clinician-scientists based in Windsor for us to work with! In fact, as part of getting prepared to start your longitudinal research experience you'll be provided with a list of these people along with what they study and how to get in contact so it's super easy to set up. I wouldn't necessarily say it's true that 'most' of our projects are based in London at all! You'll also have the opportunity to attend sessions to learn about research grants that are available over the summer - one of these is called SWORP (Schulich Windsor Oppo
  13. I'm a current student and we haven't received the link yet, so I don't think any of the incoming students have either
  14. It entirely depends on your rental agreement! I signed mine for 6 months when I moved in and after that it turned into a month-to-month lease (i.e. I can leave at any time given I provide appropriate notice). Probably something worth discussing with your landlord/building manager! I am going into my third year in a row in the same apartment, but some classmates did chose to move after first year if they didn't end up liking the apartment or if they decided they wanted roommates. I've also seen several classmates put up postings to sublet, and I know of classmates who simply continue to pay for
  15. Western doesn’t provide a form, but your family physician should have a record of your immunizations - it’s a yellow immunization card if you’re from Ontario! Many of the requirements are for serology/titres, so you’ll just call up your family physician and list what you need to be tested for and they can order the appropriate blood work. the portal to submit your documents is Synergy, the ESPC just refers to the actual virtual appointment where your documentation is reviewed & approved. Hope that helps!
