housecalle posted a topic in Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy DiscussionsHello, Does anyone know how many spots the UBC MOT waitlist typically moves? I tried searching this forum for information from past years, but so far no luck. If I find any info I'll be sure to update this post. Also for individuals who were waitlisted for UBC's MOT program in previous years, but then were offered a seat, what was your initial waitlist number? Thanks EDIT: Also, does anyone know if this information means that for 2017 intake, there were 365 applicants for the MOT program, admission offers were given to 66 individuals, and a total of 52 individuals were admitted, so then there was 66-52 = 14 people accepted off the waitlist? https://imgur.com/a/ga5Oa
housecalle posted a topic in Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy DiscussionsHello, The guidelines for the statement of intent on UBC's MOT page state that "PLEASE USE YOUR FULL NAME AS THE HEADING FOR YOUR STATEMENT.". Does that mean I just write my name at the top in the center, then just have the content of my SOI? Thanks
van_12 posted a topic in Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy DiscussionsHello everyone, I had a question regarding the admission process to UBC's MOT program. For those who have been accepted into the program and/or are current/past students, I was wondering what your course load was like in the last two years of your undergrad? I know this is not listed anywhere on UBC's MOT program website, but I have came across some programs in other provinces which state that they prefer students who can demonstrate their ability to manage a full course load. I plan on taking 3 courses per semester for my last two years of undergrad, but am contemplating whether I should increase it to 4 courses in case taking fewer courses might influence my admission. If anyone has taken a similar course load and has been accepted, please feel free to share your experiences! Also, in regards to the volunteer/work experience requirement, I have been volunteering at a seniors' care facility for 3.5 years (this will increase to 5+ years during the time of my application), where I help feed residents in the special care unit, assist recreation staff with programs/games, and have one-to-one conversations with the residents. I have also just started a volunteer position with the OT department at a hospital, where I will be assisting the rehab assistant with small group exercises. Do you think these two positions will be considered strong for my application? Any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks everyone
housecalle posted a topic in Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy DiscussionsHello, I'm currently entering the 4th year of my BSc in biology at UBC and I'm thinking of pursuing the MOT after I finish my degree. Regarding the entrance requirements, do they take into account the marks in the 3 creds of psychology, 3 creds of sociology and 3 creds of human anatomy, or do they only consider the 300 and 400 level courses? Also for anyone that is in the MOT program right now, for the 70 hours of volunteer experience, does volunteering in the OT program at one of the Vancouver Acute Hospitals count? Any help is appreciated. Thanks
