  1. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone accepted their offer to the MSC Physiotherapy program at the University of Brighton for this year (2019)? If so, I was thinking of creating a Facebook group so we can look for roommates, ask questions about the transitioning process, and just simple banter (or complaints of our future program lol)
  2. Hi All, So I've been accepted into physio at Ottawa U. However I was wondering if there were any anglophone Physio students out there who could sort of give me an idea of how hard the french is. I have a working knowledge of french and can speak well enough, however I am just really unsure about the course content and style of teaching and if I would be able to keep up with it all. I have never taken a university level course in french and have not been in a french class in 4 years. Just looking for some advice! Thanks
  3. I thought it would be nice to continue the tradition of having this thread for applicants! Copy and pasted from the previous years thread. Here's how it goes (use this format): Applied + (PT or OT?): Accepted: Waitlisted: Rejected: GPA: (cum and sub if you applied to any University using them both) Perceived strength of essays/interviews/references: Good luck everyone!
  4. Hey everyone! We are three physiotherapy students from McMaster University who have created both an instagram page and podcast to connect with students, physiotherapists and other health professionals!Our page serves as a place to update you all on our lives as we progress through our program, placements, and practice. We highlight many aspects of our daily student life while trying to give people advice on making it through the program! Check us out at: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/therabaes_physio/ Itunes: https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/therabaes/id1451321143 Don't be shy! Please feel free to reach out to us for any questions about PT, McMaster, student life, etc.
  5. This question is for all current physio students- I have applied to quite a few physio programs this year and wanted to know how possible it is to qualify for a scholarship set aside for PT students? I have gone through a couple of websites and the number of scholarships available is pretty good when looking at the class-size. But I feel like current students would have a better idea of what it actually looks like. I look forward to hearing your thoughts! Thanks
  6. Hi Everyone, This question is mainly for physio students currently studying at Western. How are you finding the program in regards to teaching techniques and classroom environment? Do you feel like you have a wide variety of placement opportunities in a wide range of settings? I have heard that Western helps students placed outside of London by giving them $600 per placement. Is this true? Are there other opportunities for scholarships etc. I have seen quite a bit on the website but would like to hear others personal experiences as well. Also, how is the living situation in London? Is there a way to find other PT students to rent with, hopefully closer to campus? What about extra-curricular experiences? Also, I have heard that some PT programs are on a pass/fail basis, giving greater emphasis on collaboration and team-work. Would you describe Western's program to be like that? Thank you all. I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
  7. Hi All, I was looking into Queen's PT program and saw that their accreditation status is probationary. Can anyone clarify what this means and how it will affect newly admitted students this year? Also, I'd love to hear what your experience at Queen's was like. What is their teaching method like? How's the faculty and housing? What about placements- do you feel you gained a wide variety of experiences or was it mostly in a clinical setting? I look forward to hearing your thoughts!!
  8. Hi All, I am planning to go on exchange if possible for the fall 2019 semester. I have considered universities in Australia, Singapore, UK, and USA (through NSE). However, I am also planning on applying to physiotherapy programs during that cycle. Does anyone have any experience with the process of getting transcripts and inputting grades to ORPAS and the schools themselves? I am just worried that the transcripts won't come in on time. Thanks!!!
  9. Have any PT/OT students out there written Casper for the Professional Health Sciences? I think Dal students have had to in the past. Any recommendations on how to prepare, what to expect, resources? I'm looking to apply to Western's PT program which now requires Casper.
  10. Hey guys! I was just wondering if any previous or current students or those who generally know a lot about the two universities could give me some pros and cons of the program, student life, placements etc.? Thanks
  11. So, I did my undergrad in Kinesiology at Queen's, and took all of my prerequisites for Queens PT (I.e. Anatomy, Psych, Stats, Physiology) in my first 1-2 years. However, I didn't do so well, and so I will be re-taking all of my prerequisites, except at Athabasca U since I no longer live in Kingston. Is this allowed/standard practice? Can I simply take the Athabasca equivalents for the Queen's prerequisites (As listed on the Queen's site) and choose to submit my prerequisites from the Athabasca courses instead of my old Queen's courses? If it makes a difference, the Queen's courses will not be a part of my sGPA, as they were taken early on in my undergrad. Thank you to anyone who has either done this or knows enough to chime in!
  12. Hi Everyone, I'm a 1st year OT student at Queens, and I will be looking for 3 people to join my house beginning in September. Its a two unit, and I live in the basement unit with another 1st year OT, but the upstairs I will be looking for 3 people. I figured I would create a platform where people searching for housing can also look for a roommate, as I think it would be great to have a house of OT/PT students. Once you get your acceptances there will be a facebook group created, and that also works as one excellent platform, so I highly recommend you join that as well. If you have any housing questions, or general questions about the OT program at Queens shoot me a message, I'd be happy to help Looking forward to meeting the class of 2020! Kind regards, Vanessa
  13. Wondering if anyone has gotten accepted to a PT program and then couldn't attend do to illness, injury etc then was successfully reaccepted years later? I was accepted to Queens and Western 2 years ago and wasn't able to attend. I'm applying this coming year again and hoping for the best! I now also have a masters degree but my undergrad and experience are stronger. I'm worried that it will now be 3 years later!
  14. Hello everyone! Just decided to start up another thread as I'm sure a few of you have some decisions to make over the next few weeks. If you've got any questions regarding the program that we've got here at Western, student life in London, or absolutely anything else, fire away and I'll do my best to answer them! We also have a facebook group that's getting started up by our PT student council, once that's up you guys can also post some question there!
  15. I'm just finishing my Masters degree now and will be 25 when applying next year to physiotherapy programs. I was accepted in the past to a few programs but was unable to attend do to some health issues. I was just wondering how old you guys are that are applying or average age upon starting the program? I'm aware most people are in their early 20's but I was wondering how many of you started a little later.... I'm feeling a little behind now when applying. Also does anyone know if PT schools count your masters program gpa in the calculation... My undergrad is way higher! Thanks Hoping to get in again! Thanks
  16. Does anyone know when we should expect to hear back from Queens PT for whether or not we got accepted?
  17. Hey everyone, I applied to PT schools in Ontario and I was curious to see how many out-of-province applicants they typically accept. I emailed a few schools and they said they do not discriminate based on the applicants home town/province but I'm curious to hear from current PT students. Are there any BC residents (who completed their undergrad in BC) in your cohort? Thanks in advance!
  18. If anyone could give me a general idea, that would be great! I'm a beginner but haven't practiced in a number of years.
  19. I have a quick question, when most of you are saying "sGPA - 3.70 and cGPA - 3.54" how exactly are you calculating your GPA from grade percentages? For example, using the ORPAS conversation table, your average grade percentage would be roughly 80 - 84% for 3.7 and roughly 76 - 82% for the 3.5 gpa. I have roughly an 84% over my last 60 credits, would that put me at a 3.7 GPA? https://www.ouac.on.ca/guide/orpas-conversion-table/ Thanks in advance
  20. Hi everyone, This is my second time applying to physical therapy. I went back to upgrade my marks. My cgpa is 3.09 My last 20 courses is 3.69 I have an academic and clinical reference. I volunteered at the hospital specifically at the knee replacement department and worked with PTs, at a clinic and at erinoakkids center for rehabilitation. I am thinking of applying to western, queens, McMaster, Toronto. Are there any schools I should be applying to but left out and are good to get in with my stats? Any help would be appreciated.
  21. Just wanted some input on my chances of getting into Queens, Toronto, Western and McMaster. I've had a hard time trying to gauge my GPA as I have gone to two different schools over my last 2 years, and both of them have different ways of calculating GPA, and one of them doesn't include a grade % in their transcripts, only letter grades. Here is a table of my last 20 classes with the suspected GPA correlating with the letter grade. School #1 A 3.9 A 3.9 B- 2.7 A- 3.7 A- 3.7 A- 3.7 B+ 3.3 A 3.9 B 3.0 A 3.9 B 3.0 A 3.9 GPA at school #1 = 3.55 School #2 92% A+ 4.0 72% B 3.0 79% B+ 3.3 92% A+ 4.0 91% A+ 4.0 93% A+ 4.0 76% B+ 3.3 81% A- 3.7 84.3% total =3.66 Average % at school #2 – 84.3% Total average GPA of the 2 schools using letter grades = 3.6 using whatsmygpa One question I have is using school #2 for calculating my GPA, I have an 84% which correlates to 3.66 using whatsmygpa, but when looking at ORPAS table, grade percentage of 84+ is >3.7gpa. Are there any other ways to determine what my GPA is over my last 20 courses? If I did add everything correctly, and my GPA is 3.6, are there any schools that would actually consider me? Thanks,
  22. Hi guys, Congrats to everyone who got accepted into PT programs this year. I have a question for people who are accepted to UBC, QUEENS, WESTERN, and University of Saskatchewan. What was the GPA cut-off this year? Also, if you feel comfortable are you able to tell me the GPA you were accepted with into these programs? How many hours did you volunteer and what made your application stand out? I graduated with a BA (history major) two years ago, and decided to work in the field I initially thought was for me. And even now, I enjoy my job but it’s not something I’m extremely passionate about. I always wanted to pursue physiotherapy because I used to volunteer at a senior’s home in the rehab department alongside some physiotherapists. I enjoyed it so much and thought about switching my majors in the last year of my undergrad but didn’t go through with it since I was almost done my undergrad, and looking at the admissions requirements for MPT, I was worried that it would take me so much longer to become a PT. After working for two years at a comfortable job, I still can’t get the idea of wanting to pursue PT out of my head. So I decided to follow my passion and at least TRY, otherwise, I will always regret it. I’ve already completed the anatomy and physiology prereqs, and working through the rest of the prereqs this year. I’m hoping to apply for next year’s program at UBC, QUEENS, WESTERN and University of Saskatchewan. I’m a 70 -75% average student (undergrad) and trying to get my GPA high by taking some electives currently. It’s a little disheartening when everyone keeps telling me that 80% will not be enough. I want this so bad and I’m trying my best to get my GPA high enough to be at least considered. I have LOTS of experience working with people. I have over 100 hours volunteering with kids (coaching, and working with cognitively impaired children), and about 50 hours working with seniors in the rehab department. I’m volunteering in a rehab clinic right now and with a non-profit disability society. Any advice or recommendation will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, B
  23. I have a sGPA of 3.6 with a Kinesiology degree from Waterloo, what're the chances of getting into OT at Western, Queens, UoT or PT at Queens? I have some experience and pretty good references (acted as a research assistant in a brain and body lab + volunteering at a physio clinic. Please let me know ASAP, I'm not sure if i should take a couple extra courses or not, I appreciate any help given, cheers.
  24. Hello! I am a undergraduate student at the U of M finishing my bachelors in Kin. I was wondering how the qualifying year works for the Mcgill PT program?. On the site it said that guaranteed spots are available for QY students idk if i understood that right but some help would be nice.
  25. Hi all, in the previous years, this template has been used in order to keep up with those in the same boat as u (applying for physio/OT) as well as to see how competitive ones application is.
