  1. do you predict any upcoming changes due to MCAT cancellations (not sure how this pandemic will end up - but the dates keep getting cancelled). Yes, I'll be applying to UofT as well. Thank you DrOtter
  2. Undergrad GPA is as follows cGPA is 3.39 (with a significant upwards trend. my last year was 3.73) Best 2 years is 3.56 Last 2 years is 3.49
  3. cGPA: 3.39 (3.19, 3.39, 3.25 and 3.73 - respectively for years 1-4) wGPA (as per uoft): 3.56 Also completed MSc
  4. A little about me: 1) Undergrad (kinesiology) wGPA 3.56 - Recipient of a leadership based scholarship 2) Did Masters in Occupational Therapy (course based 2 year program). Worked in a community setting for 1 year doing home visits. Almost 1 year at a hospital (acute medicine, ICU, cardiac care, etc) providing rehabilitation in an acute setting. I've been working during this pandemic in the frontlines full-time and recently went part-time to study for MCATs as well (schedule to write in early Sept) 3) 2 research publications + 2 research projects 4) Extensive leadership experiences including organizing national level conferences, as well as student leadership experiences. 5) Had a past student placement funded by NOSM in Thunder Bay for 2 months, and a student delegate for an international leadership experience with the dean of health sciences during my Masters. 6) I can get a good reference letter from the dean of health sciences, as well as my manager at the hospital, plus one of my past research supervisors I submitted a med school app 2 years ago and did not get an interview. I had a very low MCAT score. Any advice on my chances of getting in if I re-write the MCAT? What would be my chances? Is it worth it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  7. Hey! I had a few questions for those writing the MCAT this year: 1) Are the MCAT dates during lockdown being cancelled? or are they still being written? 2) Did anyone write the May 29 MCAT? - we would've still been in lockdown. 3) Do you guys think MCAT might be taken off as a requirement if the second wave shows up? 4) Has anyone messaged the admissions committee re: difficulties with MCAT scheduling this year? My MCAT date has already been cancelled and I got one in early Sept now. So I just want to make sure. Thanks!
  8. Dal OT vs Queen's OT? Can someone list the pros and cons? I have done enough research and asked a few students. I'm looking for more insight and opinions on the two programs.
  9. Ok. It's good to know that we are in the same boat. Thanks
  10. 1) Are we supposed to receive an email from the university if we accept the offer on ORPAS? I haven't received anything from Queen's yet :/ 2) Did anyone else not hear from Dal OT at all? :/
  11. I had a cGPA of 3.33 and a sGPA of 3.38, which will go up after this semester. I think I was accepted due to my experiences. I have a few publications and I hold leadership positions at a regional and national level for a student association. I also have some clinical experience working with a PT over the summer. I think what set me apart were probably the reference letters that back up my experience, as well as the wide variety of experiences that I have gained during school year.
  12. Accepted to Queen's OT. Got the email at 12:02 am.
  13. Yeah, I agree with mt2120 and sjb574. If you're not from NS, I would pick University of Alberta as well due to better choices in placements. You are more likely to end up with a placement of your choice compared to Dal. Plus subletting and finding accommodation would be a hassle in NS. Good luck with whatever you choose.
  14. Yeah, I called and spoke to them earlier at the end of Feb. They received all our documents. They just don't update it all online. I checked twice ... So you're good as long as you got that email Good Luck!
