UTSG - LIFE SCIENCE- courses?

A photo of MariamGuled MariamGuled
Hey guys,

so i accepted my offer into the u of t life science program, and I was wondering if anyone could tell me what courses i should be taking ( i want to goto med school or go into optometry). Any easier electives I could take to boost my gpa?
and how do I pick courses? i.e whats the difference between F,Y,S courses? :s
how diffeicult is it to get one on one help from professors, and TA's.
Are there upper year students first years could goto?
I really want to succeed and advice from second year+ students would be a lot of help.

any help will be appreciated!!
and please don't tell me i'm making a mistake by going there because of how hard it is. I'm will to put in time and effort.

thanks in advance:cheers:

1. Take any Life Sciences program and you'll be taking the general prerequisites recommended for medical school (biology, chemistry, physics, math).
2. Easy electives I know of: PSY100 (lots of reading, but easy to do well in); JMB170 (pretty easy to do well in); HPS100 (easy to do well in provided you can write good essays).
3. You pick courses on ROSI. I'm not going to go into the details: attend a course-selection workshop. F means it's a Fall course, Y means it's a year-long course, and S means it's a Spring course.
4. It's not difficult. They have set office hours and if you can't meet them at those times you can email them.
5. I don't know of any specific place dedicated to just that, but if you join a students' union in your field or help in a lab you'll easily meet one (that's how I did it).

You didn't make a mistake going here, by the way. It's a great school, but you do need to work very hard.
