Hi, I have decided that I will be applying to each physical therapy program in Ontario for 2017 admission. I just want to know the general chances of getting accepted into a physical therapy program with my experience. My undergrad cGPA is 3.54 (however I know this isn't really considered for admission) and my sGPA is 3.94 (Mac and Toronto) or 3.96 (Queen's/Western) depending on the school and if you include graduate courses or not. I am currently in an MSc. of Neuroscience and will have completed my thesis next August (definitely before september start dates for PT). I have won 2 research awards (1 being a prestigious CIHR grant for my research). I work with humans of all ages and my research involves exploring cognitive dysfunction (mild cognitive impairment) at different age points. My references are most likely my thesis supervisor and and PT I volunteer with (hopefully good letters). I have lots of community outreach, teaching assistantships (during undergrad) and mentoring experience (but mainly in Neuroscience, not physical therapy/rehabilitation). I have ~100 hours of volunteering in both in- and out-patient physiotherapy settings. Specifically, I have volunteered in geriatric, musculoskeletal and cardioresp. areas of physio (~40 hours each). I am planning on applying to Queen's, Western, Mac, Toronto, McGill, and Dalhousie (my sGPA would be 4.24/4.3 at Dalhousie since they don't use ORPAS). I was wondering what my chances are like for these schools and what I can do to improve my application come December. Any input would be appreciated!
