  1. Me! I am a 2nd year PhD student with Multiple Sclerosis. My best advice to you: get registered with Accessibility Services earlier rather than later. They will help you get accommodations in order for you to succeed, such as extended time for exams (including qualifying exams), a notetaker, alternative editions of texts, etc. Additionally, as others have mentioned: feel free to say no. Speak to your medical provider regarding symptom management.
  2. What about Calgary U? Dr. Melanie Rock is an anthropologist interested in human-animal studies http://www.ucalgary.ca/communityhealthsciences/dr-melanie-rock-supervisor-profile
  3. Forgot to mention, I highly recommend Think Like A Cat by Pam Johnson-Bennett.
  4. Ooooh, a question right up my alley! I'm starting my PhD at a vet college, because I want to become a researcher of pet health. Also, I work in the veterinary industry and have cats of my own. While I have no real opinion in any case (ie not going to tell you one thing or another), I hope the following questions can help the OP! Re: getting a cat as a Master's student - consider: 1) Do you plan on relocating after you complete your studies? If so, how far?

  5. Attending the Ontario Veterinary College for Epi PhD in the Fall.
  6. I had 2 Chihuahuas when I was completing my BSc and living in a townhouse. Whenever I went to class, the dogs stayed in my room and had their own potty area so that they could eliminate even when I wasn't around. Plan to do the same thing for my PhD
  7. I've sent gift cards for the LCBO (Canadian liquor store) tucked inside thank you cards. For my MA supervisor, I've gotten him Jelly Belly jellybeans (he loves those) in bulk and Pacific Coffee beans (all the way from Hong Kong)
  8. Also, you might try to hit up veterinary colleges. That's where I'm headed this September to do my PhD project on human attitudes and perspectives on companion animal health.
  9. So glad to be back here :)

  10. Dear OP: I just sent you a message about a program you might be interested in
  11. I had this when I started my MA - I was convinced that the only thing that got me in was because I applied.
  12. Goodness, not at all! On the flipside, having a Master's may be more limiting than not having one because many positions may not want to hire you simply because you would appear overqualified. Quite a Catch-22. Besides YorkU and UofT, have you considered nursing programs out of province? My lab partner from UofT has just completed a 2-year BScN at the University of Alberta. Additionally, there are nursing programs available at colleges that are shorter - the one that comes to my mind is the 2 year BScN from George Brown college. Have heart - contact the Career Centre at UofT to exp
  13. My undergrad GPA was 2.0, Master's GPA 3.7. Will be starting my PhD in September.
  14. Hope the OP is doing all right since this was posted last. Please let us know how you are doing!
