    I handed in my high school transcript, post-secondary transcript, and resume. However, I still have to hand in my updated marks/credits for the current summer semester.

    I wish everyone the best of luck!

Also, we are still getting organized for the upcoming term and will not be looking at any documents until September. **** and I will short list by the first week of October (or so) and make final decisions by the first week of November (or so).

    It's good to see everyone is so keen here, but try not to stress yourselves too much. When I applied I handed ALL my things on the last day, and in the end I got messages and stuff faster than everyone else (weeks ahead even..).. So just relax! :O)

    smiley, what are the hours like for the program? I play a league sport and I am contemplating signing up this season for two different teams. One team has practice on monday night and the other wednesday night. I am planning to be accepted, so lets say I do, are there any night courses? or when do you usually get off lecture and what days tend to be clinical days? and is there any lecture or clinical scheduled for the weekends??

    thanks so much!

    Hi level 1 clinical is tues and wednesday so I wouldn't recommend making any plans for Monday nights as these can be pretty heavy for patient research. My schedule last term (level 1) was Monday's- 830 to 330. Tues/wed clinical-7-2 or 11 ish to 5ish (not everyone alternates) thurs was 830 to 230. Some ppl had Fridays off (but had to come in most weeks for short seminars). I had patho on Fridays from 1030 to 12. There is alot of homework, and like I said Monday nights are the heaviest. And you might not finish clinical on Wednesday's until after 6 (by which time you WILL need a nap). All that being said, it totally depends on you, your studying style, how much you can front load, and how well you can balance everything. Hope that helps
