  1. I fail to see why parting with 1K per year should confer any extra value on top of the value that is already conferred by OP having gone through OT school. Of course there could be some angle that I am missing.
  2. Would it make any sense if simply maintaining a professional license (without gaining significant work experience) benefited people when it comes to residency and clerkship?
  3. Oh yeah, it would be better if you had only posted this in one thread rather than all of them, I didn't notice that!
  4. EthicsForBreakfast Thanks for undertaking an important project like this. In my opinion you have posted this in the perfect place. Two messages in 40 days is hardly spam!
  5. Yeah dude, I don't know your personal story and I think that the lower your GPA is the better you would need to do on the written and interview portions of the process. All you need to do to see that people with "low" GPAs are accepted is to look into the accepted/rejected/waitlisted threads
  6. 3.83 is pretty good too, many people are accepted to medical school with That GPA.
  7. Oh no worries, in that case the comment from rmorelan is correct. Congratulations, 3.86 is pretty good I think your GPA shouldn't hold you back.
  8. How can you tell from the the original post what drager has actually done? I don't think it was unambiguous. If "grades" means % grade (as apposed to GPA as was mentioned earlier in the post) than, I think the second method is not right.
  9. That sounds like normal waitlist to me, but we will know when and if someone gets the high waitlist email. This is a positive sign, congrats.
  10. I think I got low waitlist, since the wording of the email is that people in my position have not received offers in previous years. Which I think is almost the same as a rejection.
  11. FYI, that is what I was told when I asked this question by email last year. "look at it from a different angle" was an addition from me. I used 6 experiences in total, 2 of them were used twice. I did land an interview.
  12. Just put all 8, you can use the same experience for more than one entry; look at it from a different angle.
  13. Yeah that makes sense. I can believe that, that would be true. In the case where a candidate really does stand out from the field despite a somewhat weak GPA, it would be possible to capture that through the essay and interview processes. No need to try to normalize the GPA.
  14. It may be somewhat difficult, but they have reams of data, so some kind of normalization should be possible. I would argue that without it, it would be meaningless to compare peoples GPAs directly. I feel like a lot of thought and effort goes into this whole admissions thing, it seems unlikely that this point would be glossed over, but maybe I am just being naive.
  15. Do you have any coworkers that could verify for you? If you are talking about verifiers for the OMSAS ABS, that should do.
