Does anyone know if any of the australian schools have loan options for canadians?

I have a very strong GPA, but no MCAT, so I was wondering if any schools waive that requirament?

Thanks

24M is a bare minimum requirement but most people who are successful in gaining admission to Aussie medical schools have a 30+ MCAT, the average at most schools is a 30 for accepted North Americans and International students. Many of the students here are Canadians, a lot have stats that would be considered highly competitive for US and Canadian medical schools. There are some people who have had lower stats but they are a few only.

The only thing I've looked for when it comes to loans are lines of credit from banks and the max seems to be $150K. This of course is not enough. OSAP and Federal will give a max of 10K each I think, does any one else have any other options?

I spoke to OSAP and this is what they told me so does anyone know how to get more funding? 150K + 40K from banks and OSAP respectively is simply not enough. How are people paying form med school in Aussie?
