  1. I am not sure how much they're weighted but it's important to have a good reference from my perspective. it gives me insight to who you are from someone else's perspective. I have read applications with references that boasted the applicant's attributes and others who could hardly comment on it. Makes me think of you one way or the other.
  2. The written application portion is read by several reviewers, then given a mark based on a rubric. Red flags are your typical red flags, thinking you're amazing, sounding social inept, etc. Must haves are attributes that would make a good physio.
  3. From the Ontario schools you will get an email from all the schools usually within minutes of each other. It will say if you got accepted or not. usually comes at midnight.
  4. You should be answering these application questions the way you feel is best and that best reflects you. There is not much room to talk about yourself but think about what these programs are looking for in a person to become ideal healthcare workers. My GPA was a 3.81 and I got into Western and Queen's 2 years ago.
  5. It all depends how you come off as a person. If you write a super formal essay, maybe you sound unrelatable. One of my classmates told me how she literally wrote a story about her experience with a patient. It's entirely up to you how you want to be perceived. They are not going to reject your application if you use personal pronouns.
  6. I will piggyback off of this and can offer my experience at Western's PT.
  7. I worked as a kin before applying and became a physio. It all depends on how you portray the experience of being a kin on your applications. overall it's a positive but if you come off as a know it all just because you worked as a kin - no bueno

  10. ??? It's not like Western has a large focus on MSK to the point it gets in the way of the other areas lol. I wouldn't even call it a focus on MSK. They just have profs that are more dedicated to MSK so you will learn from some talented MSK clinicians and because of that there are more MSK post-grad courses held at Western. Vise versa where you're not going to learn more neuro at UofT, you're going to learn from some very talented profs in the neuro field. You're going to learn the same amount of neuro at UofT or Western. You will just have more rehab placements to choose from and you will be taught by clinicians who have more experience in the field but they won't/can't teach you MORE than Western would teach. All physio schools in Canada have the same goal, have their students pass the national PNE and OSCE. That means we are all required to learn the same things with equal emphasis on all subjects. Also, you want a program balanced in all 3 fields but want to go to UofT because you think they have more neuro in their program???
  11. See if you can make an appointment with an academic counsellor at a university you are interested in attending. They will be able to help you the most.
