  1. it's through the summers as well, full-time I believe. Spring term is May - July. We have 3 8-week placements, and they change the timing a bit in the last year (I know PT ended at end of May last year for their term instead of April, then did a workterm. So, yeah, we don't have summers off. A 2 weeks - month between terms I think (ie August, december break, etc)
  2. I live in the North End, which is as far as you can get away from the school while still in the main city/peninsula, but it still only takes me 15 mins to get there by the bus. If you want to walk, then you can look at places around Dal/Quinpool, but I like the vibe of the North End better and it's cheaper!
  3. I haven't seen one, but we could maybe make one? I'd like to meet people too!
  4. You might struggle with the diversity and inclusion courses in OT/PT with an attitude like this. There are a ton of reasons people are not able to achieve good marks in classes that have to do with race, disabilities, gender, class etc. Additionally, this "equity" wave is helping support the diversity and inclusion that we as OT/PTs are meant to be supporting. If you think that this is harming the profession, you might not be cut out for a program that instills and values equity and diversity itself.
  5. For those that got accepted to Dal OT how long did it take to get the letter from FGS and did they email or mail it to you? (I got acceptance from the department on Tuesday - Chrissy said everyone should know by now, so if you haven't heard either way - call!)
  6. Am I the only who hasn't heard anything from Dal OT (I haven't been rejected, waitlisted or accepted...). Wondering if it's just me! I just got my ANAT/PHYL marks this week though - anyone else in the same boat?
  7. I don't think you HAVE to, she just said "send me an email when they're out so I can look at them right away" and I was like ok... gonna do that!! but she said there were lots of people in my situation and they'd be looked at during the "next round". Which I don't know what that means or how waitlist works with that. one thought is that they waitlisted people and then maybe will take some off the waitlist during this round too?
  8. yeah, i don't really understand it either. There are other folks who weren't done their courses that got waitlisted, but I hadn't heard anything (waitlist, acceptance or rejection) so I am totally unsure. I was worried that the fact my courses weren't done would affect me too but she said no? but I don't know for sure.. What is your GPA if you don't mind me asking (and the one of the person who got in?)
  9. at DAl? I called them last week and they told me that since I don't have any marks for PHYL or ANAT they hadn't looked at my application yet and to send my marks as soon as they were released (yesterday). I'm hoping to hear soon. So I'm not sure about waitlist placement, but It seems like they haven't looked at everyones applicatons yet so not sure how they can be fully ranking waitlists yet?
  10. hmm I'd say just say you've accepted it? I mean, they probably expect a bunch of people will say that and then change their mind. You wouldn't want to risk anything otherwise! Someone else who's already been accepted might know better though. Maybe try posting in 2017/2016 threads? or checking to see if someone said? I called yesterday and my application won't be reviewed until May bc I'm still doing my prereqs !
  11. Dal OT FAQs say the nonrefundable deposit is due within 2 weeks of being accepted. So my guess is you have to pay that and then lose out on it if you change your mind. I think you can drop out whenever before Sept 1, but you won't get that deposit back.
  12. Do you know anything about how they calculate prereq GPA for students still doing the courses? i'm finishing my ANAT/PHYL courses in about two weeks and wondering if that's working against me as they've already sent out some acceptances..
  13. I've heard of no rejection/waitlisting for Dal OT, only about 8 acceptances. Anyone else heard anything different? still waiting, I just want to know either way so I can start working on my plan B !
  14. amazing. Thanks so much for your help! I will definitely email them!
