  1. Hey guys! Does anyone know if there is a facebook group for accepted students? I noticed this was something they did in the past!
  2. Anyone know how it works- are we able to accept an offer and pay our deposit but if needed decline with adequate notice (ex- at least 3 months) ? I am still awaiting to hear from a school in my province and feel unsure what to do as I do not want to turn down an opportunity but also was was hoping to make an informed decision once hearing from all the schools. Anyone else experiencing this/have advice?
  3. Does anyone know how many students are interviewed for UBC's MOT program? Also do you guys know if they utilize MMI interviews or a different form?
  4. Hey guys! About to start preparing for my MMI any suggestions/guidance about preparing?
  5. Hey guys! Does anyone know if they utilize MMI format?
  6. Hey guys! Does anyone know which OT schools use the cumulative GPA? My understanding is its only Queens University and the rest utilize the most recent 60 credits (Sub-GPA)
  7. I’m a bit worried as I have many experiences but felt I wasn’t able to show them as well on my personal statements with such a small character count- I do feel they are shown well on the CV. Does anyone know if both documents are evaluated equally?
  8. Hey everyone! I can't seem to find any information on this- does anyone know how UBC converts our GPA into a percent when we are given letter grades from the University? also- does anyone know a competitive GPA for an out of province student for UBC thanks!
  9. Does anyone know how UofA is using it.. they say this on their page but I don’t exactly understand what that means The CASPer results will complement the other tools that we use for reviewing applications. We are trying to further enhance fairness and objectivity in our selection process.
  10. Hey guys- I'm wondering if anyone knows how CASPer exam scores are used by the OT/PT programs? I cannot seem to find any information of this..
  11. Hey guys- do you know how schools use the CASPer results? I found the test difficult
  12. I will keep checking- is still down. I called and the lady explained it should be back up sometime today and to just keep checking I will keep checking and post with any updates..
  13. Hey guys! As I get closer to the test date I find myself getting more nervous! Any good ethical reads or advice prior to taking the exam? Any good situational judgment practice websites you have come across?
  14. I have the exact same problem! MY reference tried submitting tonight but now the ORPA system is down. I am a stress mess. Any updates on the system that any one has noticed?
  15. I am seeing the exact same thing!! I am so stressed- Any updates on this? Do you know if we can try calling them tomorrow to sort it out?
  16. Hey everyone! Just wanted to see when everyone signed up to write their CASPer exam. I feel a bit confused as I am applying to Western and UBC and their applications are due at the beginning of January; however, the last date to write the CASPer exam for these schools is January 10th but I thought it normally took 3 weeks to distribute results. Any info on this?
  17. Hey everyone- kind of a silly question but I transferred into year 3 of my degree from a 2 year diploma (most schools do not consider diploma marks). Also- most schools require 60 credits for acceptance. At the time of applying I will have 54 bachelor level credits completed and will be completing the other 6 in my winter semester. So I will have 60 credits by the June 30th deadline. However, is applying only with 54 credits at the time going to impact my application? Anyone in the same boat?
  18. Okay- once you initiate an application do you have a minimum amount of days to have everything in or is it just by the Jan 4th deadline?
  19. Does this mean we must have all supporting documents attached then pay and submit?
  20. Hi everyone I am just wondering based on your experiences those who have been admitted to canadian OT schools and those that have no yet but have tried! What would you consider a competitve GPA based on your experiences? I understand this is valued extensively at basically every school.
  21. Hey guys! Just trying to plan the OT schools I want to apply to this year.. I am an Alberta resident- just hoping for feedback on most competitve schools for out of province applicants
  22. Hi everyone! I am a student from Alberta and was hoping to apply to the Ontario Schools for potential admission into an OT program. However, I have heard it is more difficult to get in when you are out of province. I am considering: Queens, Western, UofT and McMaster. Anyone have any experience with this? Average GPA of successful admission for those out of province?
  23. Hi there, I have a quick question- does anyone have any experience with successful admission into any OT programs even with completing a degree “part time”? Most of my semesters consisted of 3-4 courses with one semester of 5 while working fulltime in the field. Any similar experiences/feedback?
  24. Hi there- I am looking for feedback on the OT program @ the University of Manitoba. How competitive is it to get in compared to some of the Ontario schools? What did you like/dislike about the program? And Admission experiences/feedback? Thanks!
