  1. OT last year was 8 spots. Based on previous year threads on this forum, it seems the waitlist can move anywhere between 4-15 spots.
  2. I wonder why some schools do that. For UBC it's the other way around. OT tells you your waitlist position, while PT doesn't.
  3. It varies a lot every cycle, typically between 2-6 spots. I remember someone on this forum said they got in at number 13 back in 2013 I believe.
  4. I just got my offer of admission today. For those of you who don't get in or are waitlisted, don't be too hard on yourself and just focus on improving aspects of your application that you feel are lacking. I applied last year and was waitlisted around #15. For myself, I knew it was my interview that let me down, so I spent the time practicing my interview skills.
  5. Got my interview invitation today as well! Good luck to everyone!
  6. Jan 10. On the UBC MOT page it does say "all test scores are sent automatically to the department and will not appear under the “Test Score” section of your application". Initially I thought that meant we wouldn't be able to see a test score, but could see that a test score was submitted to the program. But I guess it meant that there wouldn't be anything listed under that section at all, but UBC has received the Casper score.
  7. Hello, For anyone that applied to UBC MOT this year, does the UBC application portal mention that they have received a casper test score under the documents section? For me, casper said they sent scores to UBC, but there's no mention of it under the documents section. Thanks
  8. I believe that a lot of the OT/PT schools are using it for the first time this year, so I don't think many ppl know. For all we know they could just be testing it this year and not actually putting any weight on it until next cycle.
  9. As per the title, are we allowed to have a paper and pen to take notes during the test? Thanks
  10. Hey, seems like you got an answer for Western, just in case you haven't heard from UBC, their website mentions this: "Review the CASPer Test page and ensure you have completed the test by January 10th. All CASPer scores for UBC MOT applicants must be distributed by January 15th. *Applicants who took the January 10th CASPer test will be allotted additional time to submit their test scores."
  11. I still haven't heard anything from them, have you had any luck getting in?
  12. Your best bet would be to look for a facebook group. There should be one for 2020 uOttawa MOT students.
  13. Nah, haven't heard anything since. I've just been looking at the 1st term MOT courses and seeing if they move.
  14. Have you by any chance inquired about any movement that occurred in july? Thanks
  15. From the UBC MOT Curriculum document it says it usually is, Monday to Friday between 9-12 and between 1-4. That was for the class of 2019, but I would assume it would be similar for the class of 2020. Here is the document: http://med-fom-osot.sites.olt.ubc.ca/files/2017/07/MOT-Curriculum-Map-2017-2019.pdf
  16. Ah yeah I'm in the same boat, so hopefully the movement continues to happen.
  17. Thanks for the update. Are you also still on the waitlist?
  18. How many positions has it moved in total now, 6/7?
  19. Yeah that does, thank you so much. A few of my friends went from UBC to Queens, and they say Kingston has a more welcoming feel than Vancouver. Hope you enjoy it there!
  20. Hey if you don't mind me asking, what position were you waitlisted at for UBC MOT? Also out of all the options, what is your preferred location and is it PT/OT? Thanks
  21. I believe only OT at UBC tells individuals their number on the waitlist.
