  1. Hi, I stumbled upon a thread that said UWO doesn't really look at the scores except for RC? Is this true and can anyone confirm?
  2. Okay results are out. Thought I should start this post. Good luck everyone! Result: GPA: DAT: ABS: Interview:
  3. Hi guys! I'm a recent graduate from the University of Guelph, and I am planning on taking the cDAT this upcoming November. I unfortunately screwed myself over and didn't take organic chemistry in my undergrad because I didn't want it messing up my GPA but I know UWO requires it. I wanted to take it this upcoming fall but UofG doesn't offer it until the winter semester. The UWO admissions page says "Prerequisite courses can be taken at any time but must be completed by April 30 of the year of entry". If I were to take it at UofG in the winter semester, I would technically be done the cour
  4. I am looking to choose a program between these offers. My end goal is med school, but i want a university where it’ll be easy to achieve that goal and gpa without becoming depressed and drained from studying 24/7. I would also like a good atmosphere and one that is welcoming to diverse students as i am a POC. Which program is best suited for me?
  5. I am I med sci and I don't know if I should take physics 1028 (with Poepping) or physics 1301 (with Wong). So, could someone help me? It would be greatly appreciated. BTW I haven't taken grade 12 physics.
  6. Hi, I was wondering how much did the western wait-list move last year? Any response is appreciated.
  7. Hello!! I’m applying for OT in fall. I am currently a psychology student, my cgpa is around 3.5 and my sgpa for this year is around 3.7. I’m currently taking some summer courses to boost my sgpa. I have some volunteering and research experience as well. Last year I had a very bad year and failed 2 courses, I also WDN a course due to my mental state. This year I have retaken those courses and I got back into honours, but due to the coronavirus situation I WDN a course and now I realize this may have been a bad choice and that it will look bad on my application next year. Does anyone have exp
  8. Hey guys, I’m a year away from applying but I was wondering what I should do. Should I apply through the access pathway or should I apply through the swomen pathway. Is there an advantage to applying as an access student over swomen since they both have the same minimum requirements? I know I’d be able to apply as an access student because I went through three years of cancer treatment during undergrad and I went to high school in Elgin county so that qualifies for swomen status. I’d love any input! Thanks
  9. Hi everyone! I'm thinking of pursuing a Master's degree (1 year) and applying to Schulich dentistry after it. I was wondering whether any bonuses are given to those with a graduate degree (course-based)? Thank you!
  10. I am determined to attend medical school in Canada. Would love any advice regarding the few options I have Currently studying for the MCAT and going into the fourth year of my honours Science undergrad- 1st year GPA 3.21 (technically 4.5 course load, including my initial grade and my improved grade for my 1 repeated course) 2nd year GPA 3.44 3rd year GPA 3.63 I'm assuming these are my options (based on years of obsessive research on forums lmao): 1) Do a 5th year. Attain 3.8+ in year 4 & 5. Apply to Western in my 5th year. If unsuccessful, complete a master's progra
  11. Hey guys! I have created a temporary group for the incoming OT class at western, there will be an official one that goes up closer to school but for now I thought it would be a good resource for everyone to connect https://www.facebook.com/groups/431202110797712/
  12. Hey guys! I recently got into both mac health sci and western med sci with scholars electives. Obviously my end goal is med school and I know most people say mac is the safer bet but I just wanted to see if anyone had any more advice for choosing between the two programs. I like both the programs and I'm mostly considering western because I liked the campus, the atmosphere, and the guaranteed research opportunity. However mac health sci I've heard also has an amazing and supportive community. Idk I think I'm leaning towards mac, but ya lemme know your opinions!!
  13. Hi Everyone, This question is mainly for physio students currently studying at Western. How are you finding the program in regards to teaching techniques and classroom environment? Do you feel like you have a wide variety of placement opportunities in a wide range of settings? I have heard that Western helps students placed outside of London by giving them $600 per placement. Is this true? Are there other opportunities for scholarships etc. I have seen quite a bit on the website but would like to hear others personal experiences as well. Also, how is the living situatio
  14. Hey, Im in my 5th year at western trying to boost my average. My cGPA is bad, around 3.5, my wGPA is around 3.8. 1st and 2nd year were mediocre, 3rd was decent, 4th was good and 5th is good so far but I need advice as to what I should be doing for this upcoming september. My MCAT is not great (501), but im non-trad in my program and im unsure if I could get a meaningful increase with a second rewrite. I've been looking into low tier US MD schools (just bought MSAR), and I see every school needs Organic Chemistry which I did not do because it would kill the GPA I am working my ass off to try an
  15. Hey guys, I have got the results back for This NOV Canadian DAT. As I predicted due to sickness I did poorly on DAT. Beside PAT which I screwed up completely the rest of DAT is bareable. I was wondering if you could tell me whether I have shot to get an interview this cycle. GPA: 90% (best two year) DAT (AA,RC,PAT): 20,18,14 EC: Pretty average. Thanks a lot in advance for your responses.
  16. Hi, I had made a thread previously about attending uwo as a special student in a 5th year or not graduating and taking the 5th year. A couple people had mentioned the 3/5 rule saying that 3.0 courses I take in this year must be 3rd year and above while the other 2.0 can be 2nd year and up. Is this still a requirement if I am in a Special year? Or is that only a rule for 5th years who have not graduated. Thanks!
  17. What are they this year, and where do you find information like this? Also, how does Western calculate IB grades (out of 45) for admissions? What would be a safe IB mark? Thanks
  18. Hi Everyone! A little while ago I made a post asking whether a 5th year would benefit me more than a Masters would in my pursuit of med school. I have been looking into what a fifth year would look like for me (Currently in health sciences at Western) and a counselor had told me that next year I would be registered at a "Special Student". I would technically graduate this year since I satisfied all of my degree's criteria but I could come back with this new status. I have never heard of this new status as a special student before and was wondering if med schools do in fact consider this i
  19. Just a little bit about me: Ontario resident WAS planning on applying to UofT and Western... now idk what to do first year gpa: 2.91/4.0 with 5 credits *hard facepalm* (gpa sucks) second year gpa: 3.41/4.0 with 4 credits *less hard facepalm* (but still pretty hard because of having only 4 credits and needing 5 for Western and my gpa not being where it needs to be) going into my third year of studies and planning on writing DAT this November what should I do?! side note: what are some good extracurriculars I can take?

  21. Heyo I'm graduating from Western this year in Health Sciences and looking to take a 5th year as a special student. I have contacted uwo, mcmaster, queens and uoft, all of them have said the special year will be considered as long as I meet the quota for a full course load (Western hasnt gotten back to me yet but I think this is the case for them as well). My question is- In Queens' email, they said a full course load is 3 courses/semester, does it make sense to only take 3 courses each semester in my 5th year? Im not sure if thats a common strategy because on one hand, it is likely easier
  22. For anyone else out there who obsesses over numbers, I did some statistics based on a 3-year average (2015-2017), with numbers plucked from the official dean's reports (2015) (2016) (2017). Every year on average, there are: 2,577 total applicants ... (2,473 + 2,775 + 2,483) / 3 449 candidates invited to interview ... (457 + 441 + 449) / 3) 171 seats filled (133 in London, 38 in Windsor) - this has been the same for the last 3 years. A first year class with a demograph of 58.3% male and 41.7% female ... Males: (61 + 59 + 55) / 3 ... Females: (39 + 41 + 45) / 3
  23. Is it worth doing a 5th year to also apply to Western if I meet MCAT cutoffs? Backstory: transferred universities and switched majors which prevented me from taking courses at my year level (meet the 3/5 rule for Western) because I was behind. Only my 4th year will meet this rule. If I apply after my 4th year, I could complete a 5th year that also follows this 3/5 rule to be eligible. Would this also be advantageous to schools like Toronto and Dalhousie which suggest courses to be taken at your year level or above? Or is it fine in the academic explanations section at UofT?
  24. Hi! I'm currently in my 4th year of undergrad in Health Sciences at Western and I was hoping I could get some feedback on how to boost my chances at getting into medical school in Canada (preferably Ontario). I realize my stats are quite terrible compared to many other applicants but I've been hell bent on medicine since I experienced a disability at the age of 4 and any advice would be greatly appreciated. This whole process is confusing and it doesn't help that there aren't really any guidance counselors that will help with this process (for free). Age: 21, M GPA: 3.0 from 1st t
  25. For the University of Ottawa Med, their website says this, The equivalent of two full-year courses (or four semester courses) of the following Chemistry courses: i) General Biochemistry with or without laboratory session; ii) General Chemistry with laboratory session; iii) Organic Chemistry with laboratory session. Does it mean I need 2 full year credits from any of the three (e.g. 1.0 general, 1.0 organic), or 2 full year credits from all 3 (e.g. 1.0 General, 0.5 biochem, 0.5 orgo)? I'm asking this because I have 1 full year chemistry credit already and was wondering if I sho
