  1. I think they are saying that you must complete the courses you submitted on your transcript when you applied into the OT program. If you have taken courses related to Human Anatomy, Human Physiology, Psychology, Neuroanatomy or Neuroscience and Research Methods/Statistics, then these can be noted as background courses on the form but they're NOT mandatory. They will simply give you extra points when they review your application based on which courses you have taken throughout your previous semesters and improve your candidacy. Hope that helps!
  2. Hi there! I think the main reason why not everyone hears back all at once is because admissions are done in waves. For example, they send out a specific number of acceptances on a certain week, then they wait for that cohort to either accept or deny their offers. From there, the department can see how many spots they have left in the program and send out another wave of acceptances based on that. They cannot do it all at once because then it would mean rejecting a higher number of people, or putting a higher number of people on a waitlist. For now guys - patience, have faith in this verrrrrry slow process, and remember: no news is still good news. Wishing you good luck!
  3. Hi there! I also applied for McGill OT this year. I applied last year but was rejected. I heard back from them on April 25th last year if this gives you an idea. I also saw others who heard back as soon as April 16th last year on older posts on this forum. Good luck
  4. That's pretty strange, you would think they score all of the materials at once for each candidate then arrange the files accordingly. I applied with a 3.54 cgpa, my video statement was really strong in my opinion, since they dont score the CV I really took the time to speak about my experience in research and working with vulnerable populations. I also spoke in french/english to demonstrate that I am fluent in both languages. My CASPer was a bit shaky, I excelled in some questions and others not so much. I hope that helps and let me know if you have other questions.
  5. Did they mention anything about video statement or background courses on your letter? My letter stated that I was not on the top portion of files based on all four criteria, so I am just wondering if everyone gets that on their rejection letter or it was just me (lol ).
  6. I just received my rejection letter today from McGill (OT). Best of luck to you all (whether you're starting in the Fall or not), I will be reapplying next year.
  7. From what I read in the FAQ section on the McGill website, as long as students in QY (OT) maintain at least a 3.0 average they are guaranteed a spot into the masters program https://www.mcgill.ca/spot/programs/admissions-0/admission-faq
  8. Good question. If it helps, I am located in QC and haven't heard anything.
  9. It seems like they are sending the nominations/offers in waves. I wouldn't worry yet!
  10. For PT or OT? Oops just saw the OT. Sorry. I haven't received anything yet. Congratulations!
  11. Hi everyone! I've been lurking on this forum for a while, and finally built the courage to post my stats. Applied + (PT or OT?): McGill OT Accepted: Waitlisted: Rejected: GPA:c-gpa 3.54 Perceived strength of essays/interviews/references: McGill did not have interviews or LOR as requirements, however, I think I have good background courses which I took during my undergrad (biology, stats, etc), I've had many volunteer experiences involving different types of vulnerable populations, and a solid background in the research field. Overall, I think my video statement was okay, and I hope my CASPer went okay too! This is also my first time applying to a professional program.
