if I want to go major in forensic biology in second year, do I have to take a biology related course in first year?
Maryam Dawood
01:32:40
??
Esme Newling
01:32:53
3.0 GPA overall is the requirement
Himanshi Singhvi

This session is recorded. Likely available through the Quercus shell Murray is discussing currently.
Ananya Aditya
01:56:59
Do most of the work-study jobs require some sort of experience? Are there any forensic positions available for first years?
Carolyn Loos
01:57:23
The types of work study jobs change year over year
Tajharae J. - O-Week Staff
01:57:38
Not all work-study jobs require experience related to the role! You get extensive training before you start your job.
Carolyn Loos
01:57:42
They do typically require some previous experience.
Carolyn Loos
01:58:30
And come from diverse fields ... there were some with a forensic focus last year, but with activities being remote this year, it makes it challenging for us this year.
Tajharae J. - O-Week Staff
01:59:03
As with all jobs, it does give you an edge in the application pool if you have experience.
Esme Newling
01:59:10

How do we join other clubs?
Tajharae J. - O-Week Staff

As Esme said year reps are a good way to get experience for executive positions in the society, if you're interested!
Carolyn Loos
02:05:18
There will likely be an online clubs event for you to see what options are on and off campus.
Ananya Aditya
02:05:32

Quick question about the start of class tomorrow. We do not attend practicals and tutorials for the remainder of the week correct?
Mabel Tang
02:08:20
when do practicals start?
Guoria Sun
02:08:40
if I need feedback on an assignment before I want to submit it, would it be best to try and contact the profs and TAs or book an appointment with the RGASC?
Izzat Syed
02:08:42
can we apply for our program after second year? and how is that different from applying at the end of first?
Adam ebid
02:08:45
for me to major in bio second year i need to take bio in first year, what is the deadline to add or change courses ?
Angelique Alatraca
02:09:08
are there special events/workshops this year?
Aimen Zehra
02:09:55
what does applying to your pOST program involve? is it just based on grades and if you’ve taken the required courses?
Kennedy Couture
02:09:58
does the edition of the textbook really matter. Like the difference between BIO152/153 txt edition 2 vs edition 3?
Carolyn Loos
02:10:20
For all add/drop dates, or overall campus dates, please see https://www.utm.utoronto.ca/registrar/important-dates
Kelly Chan
02:10:22
For forensic psychology POSt, can we apply it after first year or only after second year?
Maryam Dawood
02:10:24
kennedy asking the REAL questions. wondering the same thing
Rukaiya Rasheed
02:10:28
For the IVNVI first year application, is there a specific number of applications you will accept?
Matteo Almeida
02:10:36
Does is cost money to book an appointment with the RGASC or is it free of charge?
Carolyn Loos
02:11:23
@Angelique - the hub will be the place we post any events, and the UTM Engage app will cover other events for various groups/departments.
Aliya Pribytkova
02:11:33
can I take physics during the summer and still apply for a biology specialist by second year
Daniyah Ali
02:11:54
What should we do if we need a reference letter for POSt?
Adam ebid
02:12:37
ok thank you
Sean YAM
02:13:52
Do the Career Centre offer job opportunities internationally?
Jacky Que
02:13:53
If we want to do a double in major in a program that's not anthro, bio, chem, or psych, what is the process to get that second major approved?
Carolyn Loos
02:13:54
@Aimen - There's a guide for how to add subject POSt's (which really just means declaring a major/specialist/minor formally): https://www.utm.utoronto.ca/registrar/office-registrar-publications/program-selection-guide
Tajharae J. - O-Week Staff
02:14:09
@Kennedy that depends on your profs. Most profs are fine with you using older editions of textbooks but it's good to check with them.
Ananya Aditya
02:14:15
Is the IVNVI mercy free for students in the forensic science program or do we have to pay?
Carolyn Loos
02:14:21
But, you don't have to worry about that until near the end of your 1st year.
Ananya Aditya
02:14:22
*merch
Guoria Sun
02:15:48
how many references do you need to apply for post?
Maryam Dawood
02:15:49
is it one recommendation for post?
Esme Newling
02:16:27
In previous years it has been up to 3 recommendations with a minimum of 1 (highly suggested you have more than that)
Kennedy Couture
02:17:22
oh we can return textbooks we buy?
Santiago Jaramillo
02:19:12
@Esme where can chem people apply?
Carolyn Loos
02:20:00
There's two separate program requirements for PSY. Please see the program entry requirements: https://student.utm.utoronto.ca/calendar/program_group.pl?Group_Id=89
Esme Newling

Simran Sandhu
02:20:37
physics is not mandatory for bio specialization to apply for POST
Carolyn Loos
02:20:40
Bottom line: You can apply after 1st year, but 8 credits are required for entry for your 2nd year.
Esme Newling
02:20:57

Santiago Jaramillo
02:22:00

Maryam Dawood
02:22:06
^ you can go
Ananya Aditya
02:22:27
Is it okay to take physics later? I currently cannot fit it into my timetable and I was planning on doing it later on in the course.
Ananya Aditya
02:22:45
Im hoping to do bio specialist
Kennedy Couture
02:22:51
Will forensic psychology specialization still have that good stuff, like ballistic analysis, blood spatter etc.. or no?

Tajharae J. - O-Week Staff
02:24:53
@Ananya yes you can take it later, as Murray said it's not required for the application but it is needed to graduate the program. Check the academic calendar for the exact application requirements: https://student.utm.utoronto.ca/calendar/program_group.pl?Group_Id=89

Hania Amir
02:27:42
in the past, how did forensic psych specialists apply for post?
Sarah Cassis
02:28:03
If you intent to do a forensic psychology specialization is it ok not to take physics and math, since it's not required ?
Antonio Fragomeni
02:28:18
How many applicants are accepted for the post?
Hania Amir
02:28:19
thank you :))
Hania Amir
02:28:29
is post competitive?
Angelique Alatraca
02:28:33
could you please explain the process of the post application?
Kennedy Couture
02:28:33
I had the same question Sarah, thanks!!
Justina Lamanna
02:28:33
Will not taking physics first year affect the likelihood to get accepted into the chem specialist second year?
OG Maskey-Tamang
02:28:47
When is the deadline to apply for a credit/nocredit
Maryam Dawood
02:29:05
ok im thinking long term - but for careers, to be a practicing forensic psychologist you need to go to grad school and work towards a psy.d correct? not sure if you know the answer
Ananya Aditya
02:29:39
Will not taking physics severely affect ur chances of getting into POST even though you have other pre-reqs and top grades?
Angelique Alatraca
02:30:03
@esme ok thank you
Carolyn Loos
02:30:20
Please see the Registrar's Office site for credit/no credit: https://www.utm.utoronto.ca/registrar/FWguide#:~:text=Credit%2FNo%20Credit%20for%20UTM%2C%20UTSC%2C%20and%20UTSG%20Courses&text=Degree%20students%20can%20request%20a,requirements%20and%20elective%20courses%20only.&text=Grades%20below%2050%25%20will%20not,will%20appear%20on%20your%20transcript.
Adam ebid
02:31:30
is the academic advisers information on quercous ?
Simran Sandhu
02:31:43
The academic advisor told me that physics can be taken any year, and that it would not affect our POST application, but is it still better to take it?
Isabelle Sakhrani
02:31:47
Are there any tips for forensic anthropologist students? Recommended courses to take besides the required ones?
Veronica D'Souza
02:31:50
So if were planning on applying for the anthropology post do we need to take physics and math (it doesn’t fit into my schedule and it is not one of the required courses for the specialization)
Esme Newling
02:31:56
Yes, there is a link to book an appointment with Teresa on the Hub!
Maryam Dawood
02:32:05
does it put u at a disadvantage if u c/cr an elective
Maryam Dawood

Gabrielle Persaud
02:33:44
Can you apply for more than one second year program?
Ananya Aditya
02:33:57
To become a forensic biomedical examiner, u need to go to med school? Will the career centre be able to help us with med school applications before we graduate?

OG Maskey-Tamang
02:36:41
What courses should you take if you dont get into a post 2nd year
Kennedy Couture
02:37:19
you can’t get into med school with a forensic psychology degree right?
Tajharae J. - O-Week Staff
02:37:29
@Veronica, credit/no credit is the option to have a (non-program requirement) course not count towards your GPA.
Tajharae J. - O-Week Staff
02:38:03
So if you're taking something for fun but don't want the grade to affect your GPA, you can have it appear as just a credit (meaning you pass) on your transcript.
Kathryn Kocemba
02:38:37
Is that 2 credit no credits every year or 2 for all 4+ years of our undergrad?
Sena Gladza
02:38:38
This prob looks so bad but when can we start applying to switch campuses and how?
Izzat Syed
02:38:42
there was an info package sent out?
Daniyah Ali
