    Does this only work for previously enrolled UofT students? I don't think I have my student number given yet.

    I hope so! Has anyone from the wait list heard back yet? In the past years (forums), some people got off the wait list close to the end of June/ beginning of July.

    Is the timetable similar to last year's timetable (posted on the UofT website)?

    I'm currently wait listed.

    Do you or anyone else here qualify for the Histology & Anatomy course exemption? If so, anyone know when we find out that we don't have to enroll in it? I believe acceptance letter said before classes start but not sure exactly when.

    Went on Acorn to check out the courses offered during first year, looks like we have 8 courses for first semester and 6 for the second semester. Got to hit the floor running, no easing into the program.

    Every year, UofT actually accepts 270 students for a total of 240 seats just in case people decline their offers. They don't actually start going down the wait list until after 30 people decline their offers. Just a heads up for anyone who is interested. I didn't know this last year when I applied :(

    Osap?!?!? I'm from a low income family and my osap estimate is about 60% of the tuition required. Percentage wise this may seem like a lot but it's rather difficult to come up with 7k tuition + textbooks + transportation costs on my own. In undergrad, I always had enough to pay for tuition. I know this is second-entry and all, but I feel as if there should be some other way to get accessed for more funding?? Has anyone done something like this before? Is anyone else in the same boat with a rather low osap estimate??

    Like you, many other applicants have similar problems. What my best advice for you would be to apply for a student line of credit. Im sure somebody did their research here and posted their finding with the best bank possible for the student line of credit.
    Generally the SLOC gives you 100k (ish) for the 4 years; which comes to 25K (ish) a year plus OSAP. That should enough to cover all the expenses

    I heard that the student numbers start with 100~ and are 10 digits. However, mine starts with 999~ and is 9 digits... I guess I got the older batch of numbers? Anyone else with a student number like that?

    Maybe it is. But I wasn't expecting to receive a tax credit in that amount. But you're probably right.

    Has anyone on the wait list heard back yet? I wanted to tally how many people in this forum are on the wait list - if you're on the wait list 'like' this post. So far, I think there is only three of us from the previous comments on this forum.

    Hey guys - sorry if this is a little off the topic, but I'm hoping to get some feedback on my chances to get accepted to UofT this year. I just did my PCAT yesterday and have a 99 composite, and currently 89% cGPA. Do I need to worry about trying to pull my avg up into the 90s this fall? Since I'll be overloading next year, I'm a little scared about my GPA. Thanks in advance!

    If this is regarding OSAP, school will provide them with proof at the start of the term. So if you need the OSAP to pay your fees, it's best to request an OSAP fee deferral now.
