Hey, where were you able to find the seat allocations?? I’m getting increasingly anxious as the days go by!

They were on the website when I applied (a few years ago) and this year they talked at school council about doubling them, not sure if they're listed on the website.

Yesterday I received an email that I have been placed on the sask wait list at UofA. I was just wondering what some of the other Sask cohort applicants received in their email, or if anyone knows how much movement the sask wait list has had in previous years?

Hope everyone is doing well! With the CAP coming up tomorrow I am feeling very nervous and I'm not sure what to expect, anyone have any words of wisdom regarding the cap?

does anyone know if CAP requires webcam or the need to dress up?

Pretty sure it requires a webcam to detect that you're there and not cheating but not sure about dressing up

It can't hurt to just wear a dress shirt

No where in the email does it say that a webcam will be used. Should they not have given us a heads up? I was just going to stay in my sweats lol.

Lol fair enough! I don't know much about the CAP,  I got into a different PT school last year, but dress to impress. You got this, good luck!!

Hi guys, does anyone know if accepting Alberta's offer for OT affect decisions for schools I applied for in ORPAS (Ontario schools?) I didn't expect the deadline to accept Alberta's offer to be so soon, but I wanna save a spot just in case I don't get into any other programs. 

 

Hi! I sent a message to ORPAS through SAM about accepting an alternate graduate program (in Ontario) and they sent me this!

Hello - Graduate applic­ations and ORPAS applic­ations are separate from each other. Just in general, each offer comes with a specific expiry date and you must accept an offer by this date. Once you succes­sfully accepted an offer through your OUAC Graduate application you would no longer be able to cancel that offer through your Graduate application, you would need to communicate with the university to see if you can be released from the acceptance. Therefore, please read your offer details carefully or inquire with the university. OT and PT programs are sent on May 29. Pls see our important dates www.ouac.on.ca/guide/orpas-dates. - Thanks - Katja\ORPAS

I also had some friends in SLP who accepted Alberta schools before their ORPAS acceptance day and it didn't affect anything! I will most likely be accepting Alberta as well while I wait for ORPAS, but I'm obviously still nervous it might mess something up as no one has given me a straight answer about out of province schools. If you want complete peace of mind, I'd message ORPAS through the SAM messenger about out of province schools. I hope this helped!

I've been focusing on the CPA website, reading over the standards of practice and Case of the Month posts. Anyone have a general idea how many questions will be on the CAP?

From what I understand, they're completely separate of each other. I accepted my UoA offer while still preferring and waiting on an Ontario school, if that offers any peace of mind! You would just lose the deposit if you accepted an Ontario offer afterwards, which is obviously worth the investment regardless, so accept it!!

Accepted to UoA OT with a 3.77 sGPA from Ontario! Very exciting after years of rejections lol. 

Hey! If you dont mind me asking, did you apply to any schools in Ontario before or now with that sgpa? I would be surprised if you could get rejected with such a good GPA!

Hey, I dont mind at all. I didn't have that sGPA until this year, I did a course-based masters this past year to boost my sGPA, since I had some meh grades in my third year of undergrad.

I emailed the SPOT at McGill inquiring about when we should hear back from admissions (PT specifically) and they said 

"The admissions timeline is still in effect, you should hear back from us in May/June"

Could be a while yet before we hear back from McGill!

I thought this was for PT? Doesn’t OT have 66 seats?

My apologies yes that is PT, I read that wrong. From friends previously in the program the numbers are very similar for allocation of the 66 for OT though.

CAP done! That was a quick 2 hours:blink: How did everyone find it? 

Congratulations! You're done! I found it pretty similar to what I thought it was going to be like. How about you?

The only thing is I'm having major anxiety about whether or not I clicked yes to the confidentiality thing (like when you don't know if you left the stove on kind of feeling)

I found it more easier than expected I thought there would be more physio specific questions!

Hey guys, for the CAP is it okay that I took the full amount of time and didn’t submit it before the time ran out? Would it count as a successful submission? 
 

edit: my CAP submissions was received successfully.

I definitely thought it was easier than expected. Considering the time limit, I felt like the CAP gave me ample time to come up with a well thought, constructed response. Hopefully we all get good news come May 29th :)
