Hello,

    Does anyone know how many spots the UBC MOT waitlist typically moves? I tried searching this forum for information from past years, but so far no luck. If I find any info I'll be sure to update this post.

Also for individuals who were waitlisted for UBC's MOT program in previous years, but then were offered a seat, what was your initial waitlist number?

                   Thanks

EDIT:  Also, does anyone know if this information means that for 2017 intake, there were 365 applicants for the MOT program, admission offers were given to 66 individuals, and a total of 52 individuals were admitted, so then there was 66-52 = 14 people accepted off the waitlist?

I think that means 14 people did not take the offer. 66 probably included the waitlist individuals, not sure how many though.

edit: oh i get what you're saying now, but I think there's 56 spots available annually (48 domestic and 8 international), so the number is still uncertain i think.

Yeah I don't know why the numbers don't add up. But if I split it by domestic/international, it says 11 offers were made to international students and of those 11, 8 accepted. For domestic, it says 55 offers and 44 accepted. Maybe because of the limited seats, those 4 unaccounted for seats represent individuals who did not complete the program in 2 years, so are still attending?

Is there a separate waitlist for OOP applicants and in province applicants? If not, how does it work, does a OOP waitlisted applicant only get a spot if an accepted OOP individual drops? Ty

Just wondering, is anyone currently accepted to UBC planning to decline UBC's offer in favor of a different program? Just trying to estimate if I should expect the wait-list for UBC to move any further. Thanks!

Thanks for updating us and congrats!!

If anyone else hears back could you update here? I was originally #5 on the UBC MOT waitlist, so I am just wondering if there's been any more movement. Thanks!

I checked with the department a few days ago, it only moved 2 so far. You're probably #3 now!

Did you contact them on the mot.admissions@ubc.ca email, or reply to the person that sent the waitlist offer?

Hey everyone, just wanted to let everyone know that the waitlist for UBC OT is still moving slowly (moved 1 position this past June) and they accept until the first week of September :) 

How many positions has it moved in total now, 6/7?
