  1. Hello, PT hopefuls! Check out my video below on GPA for Physiotherapy School in Canada! In this video I... (1) Show you how to make sense of GPA (2) Show you how to calculate GPA using an easy online tool (3) Tell you what my GPA was for when I applied to PT school in 2017 I remember being confused about how to calculate GPA when I was applying a couple years ago, so I wanted to make this video in order to clear things up for future PT students. I hope it helps!
  2. Hello, PT people! Here is a video interview I had with one of my physiotherapy professors. During this interview we discussed the importance of "soft" skills in physiotherapy practice.

  7. Hey, Mo.Physio! Thanks for the kind words! To answer your question, I would say both programs are great - as a matter of fact, all programs in Ontario are great and will give you all the tools necessary to become a competent physiotherapist in the future. To address the differences, I plan on collaborating with students from all the schools in Ontario so that I can get their take on their respective programs and to highlight how their program differs from the other programs in Ontario. So stay tuned for those videos! Lastly, I've read a lot about that Orthopaedics focus on this forum before; however, I don't know too much about the validity of that statement, so when I collaborate with some Western students, I will make sure to ask them about it! I just don't want to spread any false information right now if you know what I mean. Thanks for the questions

  13. Hello, PT people! I just launched an informative YouTube channel called The Canadian Physio Student. I started this channel in order to create videos that address and answer common questions and concerns of current and future physiotherapy students. In addition to that, I plan on showing you guys what my experience is like in a physiotherapy program in Canada (Queen's to be exact) by uploading "A Day in the Life" type videos. Click the link below to find out more about what my channel is all about! Enjoy.
  14. There's a certain GPA value that corresponds to a certain range of grades (%). For example, as you said, 80-84 = 3.7. Therefore, if one person in your class got an 80 and you got an 84, you'd have a higher mark based on %, but you would have the exact same GPA (3.7) as the person who got the 80. Now here's an example of calculating GPA: 5 random marks: 84 (3.7), 85 (3.9), 90 (4.0), 80 (3.7), 86 (3.9) 84 + 85 + 90 + 80 + 86 = 85 / 5 = 85 = your average (%) 3.7 + 3.9 + 4.0 + 3.7 + 3.9 / 5 = 3.84 = your GPA You can also use the website whatsmygpa.ca to calculate your cGPA and sGPA. Hope this helps.
  15. It's hard to foresee the 2018 GPA cutoff, as it depends on the applicant pool, which I'm sure you're aware of. With that said, if I was in your position, I personally would take the course just to be safe. I think the time and money spent on the course is worth it to make certain that you'll be above the cutoff for the upcoming admission cycle. That's just my $0.02. Feel free to pm me if you have any other questions.
