OT/PT Accepted/Wait listed/Rejected 2014

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone- I just wanted to post my stats now that I've been accepted for applicants for the upcoming cycle! I know I personally found seeing where I stood in comparison to students from the previous cycle to be very helpful in the application process. 


Applied: Dalhousie OT
Accepted: Dalhousie (off the waitlist)
GPA: subGPA 3.77 (4.3 scale)
Perceived strength of essays/interviews/references: No essay or interview for Dalhousie- one reference was my undergraduate research supervisor and the other was the department chair for my major- both wrote very strong references. I was a Nova Scotia applicant. 


I believe the reason I did not get accepted in the first round was my GPA. Hopefully this helps those of you who might be applying this year with similar averages- there is definitely a chance that you will be accepted! :)

You know the GPA cut offs for McMaster, UofT and Western are all 3.75+++?

Hey, I just wanted to know how you know that?  Do you know about Queens? I know all the schools are competitive, I am working on getting my GPA up, I'm only at 3.39 right now.

Applied: Mac OT, Western PT
Accepted: Mac OT
Waitlisted: Western PT (lower end of waitlist 120-180)
cGPA (OMSAS): ~3.7

subGPA (OMSAS): 3.85

Perceived strength of essays/interviews/references:

  • Western required a personal statement (PS) and two letters of recommendation (LOR), no interview. For the PS, they asked three questions, of which I think one answer was strong, and the other two were really weak. LORs were also really weak. No PT experience at all. 
  • For Mac, I did not have a stellar interview. I thought it was mediocre.

Can't wait to meet the other Mac OT students! :)
