  1. Applied + (PT or OT?): PT at UBC, U of T, Queens, Western, McMaster Accepted: UBC, U of T, Queens, Western, McMaster Waitlisted: Rejected: sGPA: 93% (UBC), 3.87 (everywhere else) Perceived strength of essays/interviews/references: I was a physical therapy volunteer at a long-term care facility for seniors for 4 years and accumulated 150+ hours. I was also a research assistant for 3 years (~1000+ hours). I've been working as a physio assistant for about a year at a private clinic. For my personal statements for Queens and Western, I really highlighted how each of their programs were different from others, what I wanted to get out of it, and why I would be a good fit. For the UBC interview, I prepped by practicing sample MMI questions with friends (worked on just verbalizing my thoughts in a coherent manner and get a feel for the timing). For the McMaster interview, I did this one a few days after the UBC one so all my prep work was still fresh, but worked on the timing a bit. I honestly thought my interview went horribly and felt the questions were just so random! For the CAP interview, I reviewed everything I did before (including my prep for CASPER). I also spent some time reflecting on my past experiences and times where I demonstrated certain qualities/characteristics in order to make my responses more personal. My lab director/professor was my academic reference. The volunteer coordinator at the long-term care facility was my professional reference. I hope what I have written above will help out those who are thinking of applying or re-applying. If anyone has any questions, feel free to slide into my DM's (I honestly don't know if that's a thing, but just message me). Congrats on those who received an offer! I am currently torn between UBC and U of T, so if anybody can shed some light on both programs then that'd be great too
