  1. Hey everyone! I'm feeling a little anxious about the expenses regarding PT school. I'm starting my MScPt at Uoft and will be moving to Downtown Toronto starting the school year. The cost of living is so high in Toronto, and tuition racked up over $600. It seems as if my OSAP will only be covering my tuition and cost of living. I feel as if I have no other choice but to work during the year, which is fine, except that I have classes from 8/9- 4/5 every day. Is anyone working while in PT school? How difficult is it to do so?
  2. Hey guys! For those of you who are doing PT right now at UofT, do you think its worth it to move downtown rather than commute? I currently live in richmond hill and the commute to UofT is about ~1-1.5 hours. I've been house/condo/apartment searching for places on the subway line or near uoft and the prices are so ridiculous... I don't know how people can afford this lol halp me plz
  3. Okay awesome! So do you think it's safe to accept the offer on ORPAS? haha
  4. Thank you! But these additional steps are required prior to the first day of class I'm guessing, right? Not until the due date of accepting the offer?
  5. Hey! So I got an offer at UofT for PT and I want to firmly accept it; however, the email I got from UofT makes me think that I should wait until I receive my package: "Please refer to the mailed package for additional steps required to accept this offer. We encourage you to begin the process immediately by visiting www.ouac.on.ca/orpas/. " I'm confused what additional steps are required. Should I just wait until I receive the package or has anyone already accepted it?
  6. Applied + (PT or OT?): Queens, Western, UofT, McMaster (all PT)Accepted: UofTWaitlisted: Western (Lower-Third)Rejected: Queens, McMasterGPA: ORPAS cGPA 3.75, sGPA 3.95 Perceived strength of essays/interviews/references: Lots of experience volunteering with individuals with Alzheimer's Disease but not PT related, loooooots of research experience (3 publications), board member of a non-profit. Only PT experience I have was for one semester with an individual with a disability so I knew I wasn't going to get Queens or Western. I thought my essays were strong for the most part. I'm pretty sure I screwed up the Kira interview for Mac though. I thought the CAP went pretty well; answered pretty well and thorough for each question for the most part. I used a professor that I'm verrrry close with who has taught me for two courses and the second reference I used was for the PT volunteering experience I had. I should have used a different professional reference because I didn't know her that well I guess, but it was the only physio experience I had so I felt I had no choice. ANYWAY... I'm so happy because UofT was my first choice!
  7. If you're referring to the most recent email they sent regarding this, they sent a following email to ignore it because it was sent by mistake. I think generally, you upload a transcript if you get an offer, which you'll only really know on May 18.
  8. What if you have a really high gpa (3.95) and lots of non-physiotherapy related volunteer+ research experience but relatively low physiotherapy-related experience?
  9. I don't think it has anything to do with the selection process. Especially because they're probably still reviewing applications!
  10. I actually created my Mac portal the very first week that they initially sent that email (Jan 11) so that can't be it. I am currently completing anatomy though. However, it won't make any sense to upload a transcript until that course is completed!
  11. I'm a bit confused by the recent email I have received from McMaster PT. Do I have to upload my transcript to the server? I'm confused because I thought that was already done in ORPAS?
