  1. 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.
  2. 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 ).
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. Good question. If it helps, I am located in QC and haven't heard anything.
  6. It seems like they are sending the nominations/offers in waves. I wouldn't worry yet!
  7. For PT or OT? Oops just saw the OT. Sorry. I haven't received anything yet. Congratulations!
  8. 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.
