  1. Log into SOLUS & scroll to the bottom of the page under Admissions, if you click “view status”, it should say that you’ve accepted your offer of admission with the correct program & career (graduate). As long as nothing is pending or unofficial on your SOLUS, then I think you’re fine. The school just seems to be a bit slow with rolling all of this out thus far
  2. I haven’t gotten anything about an unconditional offer yet, but my SOLUS says I’m a registered student. Have you activated your Queen’s email yet? I’ve gotten a couple emails from the school with a bit of info on registration, but nothing specific to the program. They also said in the most recent email that they would only be communicating with us via our Queen’s email now
  3. Been a while since I used them so I don’t have specific urls, but the official casper site has a good practice test, & it’s worth it to google for practice tests & try those. Same with the typing games. Check around & see what works best for your studying!
  4. Use the practice test they have on the website often! There’s also a few websites for med applicants with tips on the CASPer, and outlines for how to answer most effectively. If you struggle with typing speed, try some online games for typing, or typing races. I did a few every day for a couple weeks leading up to the test
  5. Haven’t heard anything new yet! Although in the open house they said they want to get the class settled & shortly after we will hear more info about classes & specific program requirements/expectations. Hopefully we’ll be hearing within the next week or two! We’ll be coming up on a month until move in shortly, since they say they want us in Kingston two weeks in advance
  6. As long as you’ve graduated, all mandatory classes were completed, & your offer was non-conditional/final, you shouldn’t have to resend any transcripts!
  7. I feel like that is likely the reason. The zoom open house that it was mentioned on didn’t state a reason either. Maybe schools will be putting out statements concerning it once their classes are assembled?
  8. I recall Queen’s mentioning they have a small OT class this year (50), so maybe other schools are taking this route as well? Maybe that could be contributing to limited spots & lack of waitlist movement
  9. I believe the Queen’s med school waitlist applicants heard back once a week, so I would imagine that for OT they might send out another batch of acceptances this Saturday (1 week since the first round of waitlist offers) or on the morning of the 22nd
  10. Email! The original waitlist emails from May 29 said that correspondence would be made via email I believe. I didn’t expect them to have offers coming out over the weekend either! I received it at 10:20am this morning
  11. Hi everyone, I just got my waitlist acceptance for OT from Queen’s!! My offer says to confirm by email to the school by June 16 & through ORPAS by June 21. I’m beyond excited. Congrats to everyone who will get their offers soon, they must be on the way!
  12. Hi! Honestly I would just make sure you go about it genuinely & professionally. My academic reference was a prof that I spent this last year doing research labs with, & she knew of my intent to apply to OT. I asked her in person around early November (been working with her since that September), but a professional email would suffice. Professors are most often happy to write you a reference, provided that they know you on an academic level. If you feel that you don’t have enough of a relationship with your professor, try reaching out to them this summer or fall semester. One of my classmates didn’t know her reference prof very well at first, so she made appointments to meet up with her to check over assignments, talk about the class, & discuss the professor’s & her own education & experience. If they know your commitment level to PT, your work ethic, & academic ability, then they’ll likely agree to be a reference. Good luck!
  13. We’re in the same position! So far no one that I’ve seen here on an Ontario school waitlist has received an offer yet, despite other people declining Queens. So I assume they’ll be releasing some waitlist acceptances after the first round offer expiry date (June 12). However I’m unsure about whether any waitlist acceptances after the first batch goes out will continue to come out in weekly batches, or if they’ll be immediate once someone ahead on the waitlist declines the offer. We’ll have to wait & see! Good luck!
  14. I feel like June 1 was the date before they changed the dates for the decision & offer expiry due to covid! So I agree, hopefully that’s changed to June 12!
