Increase competitiveness...advice! :)

Recommended Posts

Hey all! Just wanted to put my info out here and hope some of you will be kind enough to offer suggestions and advice to help me become more competitive. :)


As an aside, my GPA is not good enough for the Ottawa cut off right now (3.66) so I am doing another degree in health sciences to up my GPA - I had straight As so I'm not worried about making the cut off (my nursing degree doesn't allow me to apply right now!)...


Anyways, here's my other info:

Ottawa resident

Currently working as a public health nurse in Leeds and Grenville, specializing in sexual and reproductive health; have done a lot of advanced nursing skills training, workshops and seminars etc...

Worked and volunteered in research labs at Ottawa hospital (infectious diseases, eating disorders), Ottawa U (gap sante, CHRU, child psych); honors thesis in infectious diseases; published abstract; publication in science journal (third author)...

Volunteered at CHEO; youth tutor and mentor; royal Ottawa

International study abroad semester to UK

Started my own online consignment shop


Any suggestions? I don't feel that show much leadership in my activities...


I would appreciate suggestions and honest opinions!

Thanks so much everyone!
