  1. Thanks so much for your reply! Ok, I will look again. So far I'm stuck on the very first part of the application, and it only lets me enter years in whole numbers, no months.
  2. Wow, thank you to everyone above who replied and shared their thoughts! I'm glad to know I'm not alone @FuturePT2020 with our worries. But thank you @OntarioPTstudent1996 and @rehabhopeful for providing your insight and framing the situation through another lens. You're right that by the fall, even if it's online, it will probably be running even smoother than it has been since campus closures began, as instructors and programs have had time to troubleshoot and figure things out (I'm glad to hear it's been going well for you online btw! That's reassuring to know). Thank you for the reassurances regarding PCE passing/failing when the time comes if it appears education has been impacted negatively, they may adjust. And it's a good point that all schools will work hard to make sure we are still ready to be successful on it, no matter what. I feel better just by sharing my thoughts with you all, so again I really appreciate these comments. I personally do think I will very likely stick to my acceptance and grind it out, whatever ends up actually happening this year. I will have faith that we will all be able to support and learn from each other adequately as learners, despite social distancing. The process of applications has been exhausting the last couple years and I just want to get my foot in the door started towards a career and have the hard work I put in during undergrad pay off (I'm 2 years post-BSc now, and turning 25 in the fall also). I just personally hope we find out more information soon and I'll try to let go of overthinking the worst case scenarios for now.
  3. Hi guys, congrats to those of you who will be having the opportunity to do your panel interview online, you should be proud of yourselves for being able to interview exceptionally despite the challenges of the online MMI format. The rejection that I received is a clear one - the email states “Unfortunately, you have not been selected for a panel interview. All candidates who were offered a spot on the wait list have been contacted.” then followed by a typical rejection blurb thanking me for my interest in queen’s, large # of applicants; and that no feedback can be provided for unsuccessful applications.
  4. If I recall last year they emailed us and it was a bulletin note on the Secondary application when they made the feedback letters available. I don’t see anything/we haven’t got an email yet, so I assume like a lot of other schools and programs this is something that has been delayed due to the circumstances. so we will have to be patient to see how we stacked up this year
  5. I got my rejection / not on the waitlist but the email says “all waitlisted applicants have been contacted” so you guys should probably hear soon.
  6. Ahh I see, okay thank you + the other posters above who also helped clarify and confirm! Hang in there everyone... :/
  7. Am I reading the latest email correctly...?! not everyone who completed the online Kira interview will receive the chance to have a panel interview. Only the highest ranking MMI+ file review scorers are going to have the chance, plus those who are called from a “waitlist”....
  8. I agree for the most part. I didn’t so much struggle with the content of the questions but I wish I had practiced more specifically with the Queen’s timing style. did anyone else have a problem where they sort of prematurely answered the follow up question within the main 5 min prompt?. .
  9. I found this awkward too, it was so hard to look back to check for clarification. I wasted time on a few questions trying to do this.
  10. Deleted *trying not to feel too sorry for myself lol*
  11. I understand the decision for this, but I'm dreading this as someone who will be interviewing at Queen's online now on the weekend of the 28th/29th. I feel horribly awkward, distracted and more nervous when speaking through a webcam. I find it's hard to get "excited" and focused/"in the zone" for it like I would for an in-person interview. I hope that they also take into account the difficulty of making eye contact with a webcam. You have to look right at the webcam hole to direct eye contact which is weird/hard to do with just one person, now imagine if there's multiple faces behind the screen also...I guess I should look into tips for how best to do this :/
  12. Weirdly, my connection is similar m. My family has a similar story to yours although they have stayed ever since...rejected second year in a row though.
