  1. For those who were accepted into UofA PT, a couple of friends and I thought it would be a good idea to create a facebook group for everyone. We weren't sure if there was one that was being created already, but we thought it would at least be a good idea to have one in the meantime so we can stay connected. Considering many of us are also currently looking for potential roommates before we are able to move, we thought it would be optimal to have this group. We look forward to meeting everyone! https://www.facebook.com/groups/247366659713761/
  2. Today was just the distribution deadline no? I’m pretty sure they were delivered the second you added them to your distribution list
  3. According to the ORPAS website, all ORPAS school admission decisions will be posted together on May 29th.
  4. Is the casper score really going to fully replace the MMI in terms of how it is weighted at uofa? I would think that a casper score worth 50% of your admissions score and more than your gpa would be highly unfair. I don't think it would be representative of the characteristics of those with a slow typing speed as well as considering other schools have never weighted it heavily and there is minimal research on its validity since it is fairly new.
  5. On the ORPAS website they say that they do not normally include "Bachelor of Education Programs" in their GPA calculation for PT. However, it also says that each university may use a different GPA than what is calculated by ORPAS, based on their own admissions criteria. I have a few courses that may fall under the faculty of education (Educational Psychology/EPSE and Counselling Psychology/CNPS) here at UBC within my last 20 credits on my transcript, although I am a Kinesiology student. I am not in a Bachelor of Education so are they only referring to these courses not being accepted if you ar
  6. On their website it only says a MINIMUM of 15% out-of-province students are accepted but it does not mention anything about the amount of in-province students that are accepted. Does that mean if there are a substantial amount of out-of-province students with high GPA's and a good interview, they will take precedence over in-province students? If anyone in the program or has previously been in their program could share their experiences, that would be greatly appreciated!
  7. Hey guys, I was wondering if anybody knew how physio schools calculate the gpa of an applicant based on their most RECENT 60 credits when they only took 24 or 27 credits a term/year. For example, if the applicant is in 5th year and some of those credits extend to one's 3rd year, obviously they will use the term 2 grades as they are more recent. But how will they determine which of the term 2 courses to use in the GPA calculation, would they choose the ones with the highest grade? Or would they choose the one that had the final exam written the latest?
