Hey everyone,

 

I got an email from McMaster telling me that I am on the waitlist for their OT MMI interviews. Does anybody know how much the wait list moves or my chances of getting an interview? My sGPA is a 3.68.

 

Thanks

Realistically speaking, when do we think Mac will get back to us for interviews?

 

Today!  :)

Hey Everyone!

 

I applied through paper documentation to Dalhousie for both PT and OT... did anyone receive confirmation that their application has been received?

Hi Rehabapp, I did receive confirmation of my OT application from Dalhousie about 2 weeks ago. I submitted an online application but also a few paper documents.

Rehabapp, I received a confirmation from Dalhousie saying my application was complete and under review for OT on Feb 23rd. I used the paper application process. You should get one soon or call Chrissy and ask if anything is missing.

Applied: UWO, McMaster, Queens, Dal (all PT)

Accepted:
Waitlisted:
Rejected:

Interview: Recently got accepted for an MMI interview at Mac, hoping to hear from Dal for an interview soon

GPA: sup & cum GPAs both similar: 3.87-3.88/4.0 or 4.03-4.04/4.30
Perceived strength of essays/interviews/references:

 

​Really good personal reference from a Physio I volunteered with in a nursing home. ~50 hours volunteering with her plus ~20 hours volunteering in non-physio related university research.

I believe I have two strong academic references from professionals I know quite well, have had them both for 3 classes and have performed well in them all.

 

Does anyone have advice for preparing for the MMI? This is my first year applying!

Applied: U of A, U of T, Queens, McMaster, Dalhousie, Western (All OT)

Accepted:
Waitlisted:
Rejected:
GPA: (cum and sub if you applied to any University using them both) sGPA 3.78 cGPA 3.2 isn (I can't remember the exact number)
Perceived strength of essays/interviews/references: I'm not sure! I think they were good, but I am really not sure what the schools are looking for! I think I am overthinking everything because I want to get into OT so badly!

Hey! I am not sure, but I declined my interview last week and hopefully, those on the waitlist would hear soon. (I had a 3.83 subGPA.)
