  1. On the ORPAS website they say that they do not normally include "Bachelor of Education Programs" in their GPA calculation for PT. However, it also says that each university may use a different GPA than what is calculated by ORPAS, based on their own admissions criteria. I have a few courses that may fall under the faculty of education (Educational Psychology/EPSE and Counselling Psychology/CNPS) here at UBC within my last 20 credits on my transcript, although I am a Kinesiology student. I am not in a Bachelor of Education so are they only referring to these courses not being accepted if you are taking a Bachelor of Education? Has anyone in the past taken these types of courses and still found them included in their GPA calculation?
  2. On their website it only says a MINIMUM of 15% out-of-province students are accepted but it does not mention anything about the amount of in-province students that are accepted. Does that mean if there are a substantial amount of out-of-province students with high GPA's and a good interview, they will take precedence over in-province students? If anyone in the program or has previously been in their program could share their experiences, that would be greatly appreciated!
  3. Hey guys, I was wondering if anybody knew how physio schools calculate the gpa of an applicant based on their most RECENT 60 credits when they only took 24 or 27 credits a term/year. For example, if the applicant is in 5th year and some of those credits extend to one's 3rd year, obviously they will use the term 2 grades as they are more recent. But how will they determine which of the term 2 courses to use in the GPA calculation, would they choose the ones with the highest grade? Or would they choose the one that had the final exam written the latest?
