Is it safe to say that if you didn’t get an ACORN sign in, you’re not getting in to UofT? I only got Western sign in info.

I wouldn't say that! We won't know until tonight so don't give up hope! Acorn can be glitchy, there's still a chance :)

Definitely check out the different pre-reqs and program lengths, but also check out residency requirements. What U of A considers an Albertan applicant, and what U of S considers a Saskatchewan residents are a bit different. 

If cost of living is important, check out the differences between cities. I'd love to be on the west coast and go to UBC, but a) I don't have physics and b) living in Vancouver is not within my budget.

You may not have a lot of extra time when in school, but if there are activities that you love to do, like kayaking or skiing or biking, check out their availability near the schools you're most interested in, or if there are local groups that you can join. It makes it a bit less intimidating to move to a completely new place. Plus, with all the stress of school, we all need a little bit of fun. 

You got this!

This is great, thank you for the help! Do you know if UBC accepts courses like biomechanics as a substitute for physics?

https://physicaltherapy.med.ubc.ca/prospective-students-2/mpt-admissions/admission-requirements/

Physics: any one-term/half-year 3-credit course of university-level physics or Physics 12 (or out-of-province equivalent Grade 12 physics). We do not require that you complete a lab component. Bio-mechanics will not be accepted to cover this prerequisite.

For those of you who have "Invited" on Acorn, what does it say for the degree code? MSOT or MSOT2? 

 

I have also been invited to the master of social work and on acorn it says MSW2. I believe it just means "2 year program"

Hey everyone!

This is a bit off topic. But I would love to know why people who applied for OT want to pursue that career, and also what your perceptions of OT as a profession are in Ontario and Canada, in terms of the demand?  I keep reading online that the field is shrinking and being utilized less and less o_o

Mine says MSOT2 as well - I hope it's not UTM!

2 hours left - the SUSPENSE!!

@jammerz , where did you read that? I feel like I've only read the opposite, and that the employment rate in Canada is something like 95%. Would be so interested to see if any current practicing OTs or OT students can comment! :)

Edit: Tried to remember where I saw that statistic, it was from a post by CAOT:
