  1. Are you renting through your university or privately?
  2. Did you have to provide info regarding the owner of the house? When I contacted my parents insurance company they mentioned the extension only applies to student housing provided by the university so I’m wondering how you set it up!
  3. Hey guys I'm trying to secure tenant's insurance but am having difficulty finding a company that allows 3+ roommates. Wondering if anyone was able to find one or what you are doing if you are in a similar situation. Thanks!
  4. Are you guys getting the influenza shot? It’s not the season for it so there isn’t rlly a shot atm but it’s still on the form so not sure what to do
  5. Anyone know if we need to buy a blood pressure cuff or penlight or anything similar?
  6. Ah I see, so most people get the cardiology IV model as opposed to the Classic III correct? Thanks for all your help!!
  7. Could you provide more details about the bulk order (what company is ordered, is engraving possible, etc.)? Thanks!!
  8. Anybody know if we need to buy scrubs for uOttawa?
  9. Hey guys! I was hoping someone could touch upon what some key things are that we should be buying for first year? Thanks!!
  10. Thanks for your info! Based on my research, LOC interest rates are actually lower than OSAP. LOC at most banks is prime - 0.25%, whereas for OSAP the Ontario portion of the loans have an interest rate of prime + 1% and federal at prime + 0%. Just thought to throw that out there in case anyone else looks into this thread!
  11. Oh nevermind, I think you mean that by applying for OSAP you're automatically considered for provincial and federal bursaries/loans correct?
  12. So by applying to OSAP via their application, I will automatically be considered for school specific bursaries?
  13. So essentially I could get a loan for which interest wouldn't accumulate until finishing med, then use my LOC to pay off that OSAP loan after school is done - thereby preventing interest accumulation on my LOC if using solely that to pay for school?
  14. Hey guys, this might be a rlly dumb question, but what's the benefit in applying for an OSAP loan as opposed to solely using a LOC to pay for school?
  15. Can anyone explain why the BLS Interim Part 1 courses vary so much in price? Is there a difference between them? Also, is the location that we select for part 1 the same location we'll have to do part 2 at?
  16. Accepted Ottawa over Mac (Hamilton campus) - hope this helps one of you guys!
  17. Would you be able to link the FB group or simply let me know it's name? I'm not able to find it when I search for it!
  18. I'm interested in peds or OBGYN... would that be considered small?
  19. Hi everyone! I was hoping to get some insight on how significant the homeschool advantage is! I received offers from Ottawa and Mac and am leaning towards Ottawa due to its curriculum. However, I am from the GTA and would like to do residency closer to home (ideally Toronto). If the home school advantage is significant, then I would prefer to have it at McMaster since its by far closer to my home town. Thanks in advance!
  20. Hey guys! I've received offers at both uOttawa and Mac and am struggling to make a decision as to which to accept since both are so different. I was hoping to get some insight on some pros/cons for each and if anyone is/was in the same boat, what helped you make this choice? My prominent specialty interests are Pediatrics, OBGYN, IM and FM, however I am not dead set on these and am open to trying new things due to my lack of extensive clinical experience. I've seen a lot of both negative and positive things about Mac regarding the order or cores + electives, anatomy, and pace of learning
  21. Can someone pls clarify the difference between the good vs bad waitlist? Is this discretely mentioned when receiving the email on Tuesday? And does anyone know typically how many people are on each waitlist? Preparing myself with all the info to limit freakouts as much as possible on Tuesday lol
