I'm going back to school to get some of the prereqs that I didn't get in HS the 1st time around along time ago - had no interest in science related credits whatsoever.
Anyone @ Michener in the RT program shed some light on what they think of the program current or past students.
Also would Michener be a better school for RT than saw Fanshawe or Conestoga?

michener takes about 50-60 students per year
i had a bachelor degree in sciences prior to applying, but i didn't do that well in university
i think i got a B average
i guess high school marks helped? (i had an A average in high school)
as for which courses you need, the michener website lists them out for u
anyway its not just about the marks... ur admission is based 50% on your marks, 50% on your MMI score
so far i like the program (im in 2nd year) as its very hands on (but that also means a lot of lab hours an practical exams)
in fact i have my clinical visit coming up .. n then in the summer i'll have my simulation labs, and then in my final year, i'll be doing my clinicals...!
anyway im doing the michener + dalhousie collaborative program (lots of online courses! yay); they don't offer this anymore ... they only offer the michener program now so lots on-site lecture hours
the staff is very friendly...generally very competent. i feel that a few instructors don't teach very well, but that happens at all schools
if you apply and get on the waiting list...don't worry.. theres still a high chance u'll get in. a lot of people on the waiting list gets in after 1st or 2nd round (by about..june/july). i was personally on the waiting list for RT, MLS, and cardiovascular perfusion .. and i got into both RT and MLS. anddddd ...im glad i picked RT over MLS
ps. forgot to mention.. most people already have a degree prior to this program, but there are also some students who came straight out of high school. there are also students with families, and some well into their 30's to 40's
