  1. Yes, what is the difference between conditional and final offer? I am assuming that conditional is for those who still need to send in final, updated transcripts?
  2. This is actually not the case for U of A anymore. If you check the FAQ on their website, under the question "Are there any restrictions on applicants from other provinces?" this is the response: There are no limits placed on applications from other provinces. All applicants from across Canada and other countries are reviewed together and will compete for the 120 spaces. However, 15 of those spaces are reserved for residents of Saskatchewan. Which makes since because Saskatchewan does not have an OT program, and those 15 students admitted are required to do their practicums in Saskatchewan, which as HK2018 mentioned is to promote Sask students to work in the province after graduating.
  3. From what I've been in previous forums the ORPAS portal will show us our offers right at 12am!
  4. Does anyone know if there's been any more movement on the waitlist?
  5. Not at all! Kenhub is just one way to learn anatomy, and just because it doesn't work for you doesn't mean you're not cut out for the program. And I agree with OT1996 that OT isnt as heavily anatomy based as PT anyways. Dont worry
  6. I've been using Kenhub as a way to review my anatomy with all of this free time! There's a free version where you have limited access to videos, articles, and quizzes, or you can pay for a subscription that gives you full access. Hope this helps!
  7. I was accepted to U of A this year and was in a similar situation, I just made sure to write about my work experience in my letter of intent and discussed how my work as a support worker for people with disabilities played a role in my decision to become an OT Feel free to PM me if you have any questions!
  8. Does anyone know how many spots in the UBC OT program are for In Province vs. Out of Province applicants?
  9. I am on the UBC OT waitlist as well, but I don't think we have to send them updated transcripts until we get an offer
  10. I'm on the waitlist for UBC OT, I don't think there will be any movement until other provinces start sending out offers. I know Ontario schools aren't sending out offers until May 29th. Alberta should be in the next few weeks as well. We should hopefully see some movement when people accept other offers!
  11. Last year it was April 12th according to the older forums, but I am assuming it's going to be later because of COVID-19. Their website says mid-may but it also said that last year. "Students with a very strong GPA (3.8+) and overall application will be recommended for acceptance or conditional acceptance around mid-May of the admission year. The remaining applicants will be advised of their status from late May, mid-late June etc., through August of the admission year, depending on how the application was ranked during the application review process. So, if you don't hear from us at the end of May, your application will be reviewed again in June and so on. Normally all admissions and refusals are completed and a waiting list created by the end of June. " Hopefully sooner! The wait is killing me!
  12. Does anyone know if there is a difference between the OOP waitlist and in province waitlist for UBC? I have been told I am on the OOP waitlist but am unsure if I have any chance of being accepted in the next few months...
