  1. Hey guys - just realized I may have screwed my chances at medical school. I applied to queens and western. My third and fourth years are the 3.88 and 3.87 respectively. I did a fifth year in 2020 and took three courses, which was my biggest, dumbest mistake because I ended up with a calculated 3.5 gpa here. I am terrified Queens will take this year and my fourth year as my last two, leaving me at a 3.68 gpa. Have I screwed myself over?
  2. Is there any benefit of applying with ACCESS if you are secure that you past the MCAT cutoffs. Would it help at all?
  3. Hello all, Anyone wiling to review my Western ABS essays? Preferably an accepted/interviewed UWO applicant, but I would be grateful if anyone else can too! Thanks
  4. Hello, I'm not sure if I'm posting this right so I apologize if this ends up in the wrong place. I am wondering if its worth it to retake a 127 Cars in a few weeks. I understand for Western the cut-off was 127 last year but there's no guarantee it will stay there this year correct? Is it risky to rewrite so close to the first attempt? (all other sections were 128+) Especially pretty much just for Western and Mac? Would appreciate any input. Edit: OMG SORRY MED STUDENTS I THOUGHT I WAS IN THE PREMED AREA. How cringe of me.
  5. Hi friends! Congrats to everyone on their acceptances, you should all be very proud of yourselves! I attended Western for OT last year for the first semester but due to medical reasons I had to take a LOA, however I am returning in September to be a part of this years incoming class. So I'd be happy to help answer any questions anybody has about the program/ living in London, or if you just want to connect with a fellow classmate feel free to shoot me a message!
  6. Hi! I have created this thread as I am deciding between UofT, Queens, and McMaster for OT (and I am sure others are as well). I was wondering if any current OT students or graduates would be able to answer some of the questions I had or just share some of their experiences at these schools. So far from my own research I gathered the following: UofT seems to have more of a research focus, with a couple of the courses being research-based (e.g. learning methodologies, how to write a proposal). They also have LEAP placements where one can be placed where there is no OT present or
  7. 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.
  8. Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum so I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right spot, but I'm currently entering my third year at Western and have only now realized I really want to pursue medicine. That said, my first two years were pretty bad, and I'm not sure what to do or how to improve my chances. I have pretty solid extracurriculars and work experience, so my main concern is having a GPA that's competitive enough for an interview, because I was uninformed and didn't realize that GPA was king and I focused so heavily on bolstering my non-academics. My first semester of first yea
  9. Since professors have to maintain their class average around 60%, would programs with a high cut-off from high school be harder since the professor's will need to make assessments more difficult because all of the students will be high achievers. I'm asking this because I want to go to medical school and need a high GPA which is why I am conflicted between a program like western med sci which is full of keeners vs something like York Kinesiology. I know you probably see many annoying people like me on this website but please bear with me.
  10. I have gotten offers from both programs but I am having trouble choosing one. Both campuses are absolutely gorgeous and they are both similar science courses. So, the only deciding factor left is the ease of getting a high GPA. So, if anyone knows in which program it would be easier for me to achieve a higher GPA, please let me know. Thanks.
  11. I just noticed on the OMSAS guide that applicants must be completed or on the last year of their bachelor's. Does that mean that someone can't apply in the summer between second and third year? is this the case for other universities as well?
  12. Just wondering what the general consensus is on the available general surgery programs in the country, which are considered “the best” and what are the pros and cons of each?
  13. I know that there is Western Medical Science which sends a lot of students to med other than health science, are there any other programs like these? I want to know this because I am in grade 12 and want to be a doctor. I want to take a bachelor's program which is science oriented while also giving me the best shot possible for med school. Most of time what I hear is that if you don't get into the two courses I mentioned your best choice will be to go to an easy university so you can still get a high GPA (rather than a life science program which are generally tough), like you would in health s
  14. I am feeling really torn between Western and U of A for OT and I am running out of time to decide. I would love to hear opinions from a number of people in order to get a more representative sample of the student experience.
  15. 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
  16. 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/
  17. Hi everyone, I will be starting the Occupational Therapy program at Western in September and was looking to find some other individuals in the program who are also in need of roommates! Feel free to message or reply here and we can chat.
  18. Hi all, I received my offer of acceptance at Western MedSci back in December and didn’t really consider Mac ArtSci + Health Sci considering their competitive nature. Though I got rejected from Health Sci, I recently got accepted at ArtSci. I was wondering if there was anybody currently in the ArtSci program who could speak on their experience or anybody currently in medical school that have graduated from ArtSci. Would ArtSci be a good program as a pre-med? I was planning on combining it with Biochem but I am still slightly worried. MedSci is a lot more specialized
  19. This question is for all current physio students- I have applied to quite a few physio programs this year and wanted to know how possible it is to qualify for a scholarship set aside for PT students? I have gone through a couple of websites and the number of scholarships available is pretty good when looking at the class-size. But I feel like current students would have a better idea of what it actually looks like. I look forward to hearing your thoughts! Thanks
  20. 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
  21. My top choice is UofT Epi ut its sorta more important for me to get into school next Sept than it is to land my dream school- but then Im also worried about selling myself too short. Is Guelph MSc epi worth it? Any current grads in Epi from there or Western/Queens/UofT able to throw in a dime? Thanks!
  22. Hello everyone, Hope everyone is doing great. I was wondering if Western has a cutoff for the PAT score since in their released stats they only talk about SNS and RC average scores. Thanks a lot in advance.
  23. Guys, please take a minute to answer this poll. And yes, I know this has probably been asked many times, but there were so many different opinions that I thought I'd start a new topic for this and see how it goes.
  24. Hey friends! I was just wondering if anyone else was having issues with the "Abbreviated Autobiographical Sketch" for Western? I'm having issues with the PDF on my mac, maybe I'm just not as computer literate as i thought, but when I fill in the text boxes, save the pdf, and send it, the text boxes are no longer able to be scrolled through, so about half of my essays are unable to be seen. This might be more of a question for a PDF formatting forum, but if anyone has any ideas that'd be cool! xoxo gossip girl (more info, friend of mine is having issues, worki
  25. I'm currently enrolled at Ryerson; however, I was wondering if it would be more beneficial if I were to transfer into Western's or UofT's Biomedical programs. By beneficial I was wondering if completing my undergrad at either of these schools would increase my chances of acceptance as opposed to doing it a Ryerson?
