Hey guys,

 

I was wondering if anyone has any insight on how much emphasis Western puts on the personal submissions? I am asking because to me, it is difficult to objectively judge personal submissions and it would therefore seem that GPA would take priority. 

Does anyone have any information on this?

It is really difficult to say which weighs more. The school does not release this information. Sorry and best of luck

Assuming you're talking about physio, they take the top 300 applicants and establish a minimum GPA cutoff. Once the GPA cutoff has been estsblished, everyone with a GPA above this will move on to the next stage. At this point, all GPA's are wiped clean and they are not considered at all anymore. So bottom line, first step is 100% GPA, but once you make it past that stage of the process, it's 100% based on submissions, references and experiences, and 0% GPA.

Wow that's great information! Thanks for the reply. 

I was actually wondering about OT. Do you have any information about that? I imagine it's a similar process.

I go to Western and that's exactly right for PT. They give a score on each submission based on references, experiences and traits they look for in your personal statements.

Any idea of the cut-off for the physio GPA this year, to get into the top 300 apps?

Mac and uoft were somewhere in the early 3.8s for their top 300/350. I got interviews for both with a 3.82, but I was waitlisted for Mac initially (I think they interviewed 300 vs u of t who interviews 350?). I'm assuming similar for western...
