  1. Where did you see that in person instruction won't start until September 28th at Western?
  2. Hey thanks for the reply! And no problem. I'm glad that there are others exploring similar avenues and have similar questions. I have a few questions I hope you can help me with: I'm wondering where you saw that there will be increased loan amounts due to COVID? Is the increased loan from the Canada integrated student loan/OSAP? You mentioned ~80k - were you eligible to receive additional funds? It's interesting that you mentioned forgiveness programs because I didn't know any existed! Do you know if the forgiveness program apply for Ontario residents as well?
  3. Hi everyone, I'm currently researching about getting a line of credit for PT school. Most places seem to offer 80k over the two years with a prime + 1%, with a 12 month grace period after graduation. I'm wondering if any of you have been offered a better rate? Or, if you guys aren't pursuing a line of credit, how do you plan to fund your Master of Physical Therapy? So far the best offer I've received is from Scotia Bank because they've offered the Gold American Express and the Passport Infinite Visa with the annual fees waived ($120 and $140 annual fee respectively).
  4. Thank you for replying! I'm surprise that London would be cheaper because its population is much greater than Kingston, but I guess theres a lot of factors which can affect housing prices? Also, thanks for letting us know about the town hall. It'll be nice to hear what they plan to do moving forward! This is a general question to anyone who can answer, but is there a difference between the MPT from Western and Msc PT from Queens? Does one offer more opportunities post graduation like teaching positions? I just want to make sure I cover all my bases when making a decision between the schools.
  5. I would love to hear about Westerns program if anyone has insight! I'm currently deciding between Western and Queens and I'm finding it tough to decide.
  6. Putting this here for future students! Applied + (PT): Queens, Western, Toronto, and McMaster (all PT).Accepted: Western and QueensWaitlisted:Rejected: McMaster and TorontoGPA: cGPAa 3.33 and sGPA 3.86Perceived strength of essays/interviews/references: PT experience: Long term care (geriatric), physiotherapy clinic (adults & pediatrics), clinical research (older adults), and exercise assistant (independent active older adults). Non-PT experience: Club President of a club, Vice President Communications of a club, Founder of a club, and Team Leader for student mentorship program at my school. Strong reference from Professor I worked in the lab for 2.5 years and a strong reference from my long term care supervisor. UPDATE: just wrote CASPer and feeling decent about it.
  7. I haven't received an email about ACORN yet. Are you a previous applicant? Any other first time applicants who haven't received an email?
  8. Hey guys, for the CAP is it okay that I took the full amount of time and didn’t submit it before the time ran out? Would it count as a successful submission? edit: my CAP submissions was received successfully.
  9. I agree that this is unfair. I hope other universities won't decide to do the same... Please let us know what they say if you had emailed them!
  10. CAP invite with a 3.86 sub-GPA! Does anyone have any previous experience with the CAP? Any insight or guidance would be greatly appreciated!!
  11. For Western if you score above average on the Casper you will be considered despite not making the cut off. Info can be found online on their admission website.
  12. Thanks for the feedback! How do you find the program? Is the problem based and self directed learning a big learning curve? I have heard Mac has less hours of class due to this way of teaching.
  13. Not my best interview due to nerves. I wish it was a longer interview, but I assume they want to see how succinct/concise we can be?
