  1. 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
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. Hello! I'm already (yes, I know) starting my 2018 application and right now I'm working on McGill PT. They have an excel spreadsheet for the Foundational courses (https://www.mcgill.ca/spot/admissions/professional-programs) and I'm filling it out -- only problem is that due to scheduling conflicts at UBC I have been unable to take any recent courses pertinent to the "Kinesiology and Biomechanics" section. Technically, I took it Biomechanics in first year but due to extenuating circumstances my mark is less than stellar. Every other section I have terrific marks in. So I'm wondering if I should I leave this section blank? Am I allowed to? They say we can have up to two courses but what would happen if I left it blank? I will be creating an extenuating circumstances form for my application as well to inform them about my earlier performance. Also, if anyone who got into McGill has any advice regarding anything at all, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks again!
  5. 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!
  6. Hey future PT's! Here is a link to a video that features Mark Hall, the UofA Physio Associate Chair. He gives advice on how to get into PT and talks about what it's like once you're in. He also talks about how he got into physio himself and how he ended up where he is today. It's kinda long but there are time shortcuts in the description box you can use to skip to the parts you are interested in. I'm currently in the program and my friends who I show it to find it helpful. I hope you find it helpful as well. Link here: How to Become a Physiotherapist Enjoy!
  7. Hello Everyone! Well I thought since the application for PT opened on November 15, there might be a few of us with some questions. Post them here!
  8. Hi guys, Im wondering after the process of submitting our referees on the ORPAS online application. I know most if not all of the Ontario PT schools are only looking for two referees/references but I have a dilemma. I currently have three referees: #1) academic #2) professional #3)practical (someone from a health care setting such as a physiotherapist, or someone who supervised your work with people who have special needs) I am applying for Queens MScPT, which requires one academic and one 'practical' reference ( so want to use reference #1and #3). But then im also applying for UofT PT, which requires one academic and one professional reference ( want to use #1 and #2). My question is can I submit/register all three of my referees on the ORPAS application,and then have the option to choose which two of the three act as my referees for each school? Or does ORPAS not give this option and I have to narrow them down to registering only two, and those two are sent to all of the schools? Hopefully this question makes sense and thanks to everyone in advance!
