  1. Hi relaxingbath! Thanks for offering to answer questions I'm from Sudbury and so I'm going to have to find lodging for the residential blocks. I'm just wondering where the residential blocks actually occur so I can find somewhere nearby. Are the classes at the Michener Institute? Also, I have a 2 bedroom apartment that is in a really convenient spot in Sudbury. Since I won't be here much, I'm thinking about offering to rent my extra room to 2nd year PA students doing their rotations in the Sudbury area. Assuming there's a need for it anyway! Any idea where I can post an ad that would be available only to PA students? Is there a message board of some sort? Thanks!
  2. I've been working full time for almost 7 years as a Kinesiologist for a hospital rehab department, so that's probably over 10 000 hours. I'm a case manager for patients with heart and lung conditions, taking medical histories, consulting with physicians, prescribing and leading exercise programs, doing exercise testing, etc. This is very much a second career and so I didn't get this job or get my undergrad (BPHE) with PA in mind, but it served me well for applying to this program. Hope that's helpful!
  3. Got my offer of admissions around noon (and again around 12:23!). There was a recall on the first email due to a technical issue, but the offer is still good if you recevied one according to UofT! Good luck!
  4. Just got an offer of admission via email at 12:02!!! They sent a recall email afterwards, but I called to confirm that it was due to a technical issue and not taking back any offers sent out. Good luck everyone!!

  7.

Good luck everyone! I heard rumors at the interview that we may find out before May 15th, fingers crossed!
