Did you write the MCAT, as well, once upon a time?! I wrote it twice. Getting accepted into Ontario/Canadian medical schools is such a crap shoot now. Having said that, I have never felt as settled as I do now choosing to study medical lab science next year. You are right, studying for the HOAE is not as insane of a task as preparing for the HOAE.... However, I do wish that there was somewhat of a decent study guide for the HOAE (I looked through 3-4 before getting frustrated and giving up). I just decided to trust my instinct and prepare for what I felt that could somewhat be prepared for (math, spelling, nonverbal/patterns, reading comprehension).Mohankeneh wrote: ↑Apr 1st, 2018 9:15 pmhi mi320909
im sorry you had to be so rushed in your choices to find another job/career, that cant be easy. it doesnt help that applications are only once a year.
I will say however that it is not impossible to get in. if you get over 95% avg for high school and do decently well on HOAE youre pretty much guarenteed a spot. but for others like myself who had a high 80 avg and did pretty well on on the HOAE(not at all like some crazy test that needs to be studied like the MCAT) its possible to get in. im #2 on the waiting list and im pretty sure ill get in.
Honestly if it was just based on marks, i dont think i wouldve gotten into this program. but the HOAE most likely helped me out. bottom line, dont beat yourself up too hard, its not impossible but make sure you research in depth what each career or job has to offer and how the path to achieve it is. you just cant rush things as important as that.
Hopefully you can find a job (would be cool if you could use your current experience and find a similar job like you had previously but I dont know you so im sure youve already thought of that) in the meantime to take care of those kiddies of yours ( i think i want 4 but i might be over achieving there haha).
I accepted my MLS offer right away, which automatically 'declined' a DMS offer (did anyone else notice that under their 'activity' tab?). I am curious to know if I would have been accepted or waitlisted, though it would not have mattered. My prerequisite average was 90.4, and I scored 261/305 (total) and 29 (reading comprehension) on the HOAE. Shouldn't have been so quick to act.
