  1. I'm the under the impression that the PT/OT programs in Ontario require only 2 references (1 academic, 1 professional) but there is the option to add a third reference on ORPAS - any insight on why this option exists? is it beneficial to add a third reference?
  2. First time applicant here wondering how important shadowing experience is for applications? I have several hundred hours working with children on the autism spectrum and socializing with stroke survivors, but no direct experience observing an OT and I'm worried that this will seriously impact my chances of being admitted to an OT program - can anyone offer any insight on this?
  3. Okay, I created a Facebook group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/447079616221916/. Let's chat here!
  4. Awesome! I am planning to prepare by myself this week, but definitely want to start meeting up with you guys after Christmas! Why don't we make a group chat - maybe on whatsapp or discord??
  5. I want to get as much interview practice as possible but I don't like the idea of having to commute to UBC every time (: so I am looking for people living near Langley to practice with (formal as well as just talking through situations together and sharing thoughts).
  6. 4x re-applicant here. TIME STAMP: December 12, 2019 (11:28pm PT) Interview Invite or Regrets: Invite Early or Regular Deadline: Regular GPA or AGPA (if applicable): 88.72 (OGPA) --> (AQ of 28.46 for last year) MCAT (CPBS / CARS / BBFL / PSBB): 512 (129/126/128/129) Current Degree (UG/Bachelors/Masters/PhD): Bachelors of Science (UofT) Geography (IP/OOP): IP Extracurricular Activities (awards, achievements, volunteering, employment, research, etc.): Currently volunteering at a hospital, stroke recovery group, and SOBC (started all of them 2 years ago when I moved back to BC from UofT
  7. I graduated in 2017 with a BSc and have been applying to medical schools for the past 3 years. This year will mark my fourth time applying. I was fortunate enough to receive an interview at UBC last year (barely met the cutoff as an IP), but I can't help feel uncertain about if I will receive another interview this year or not. I spend most of my time working part-time and volunteering (25-30 hours per week). I was enrolled in a course in Spring 2019 as well. This year, I plan to use my down-time to re-write the MCAT. I guess I am worried that I am not spending enough time doing activities, co
  8. In this section, it says: If applicable, please explain why: A) Your education has not been continuous B) Your college or university education includes one or more part-time terms C) You are not currently attending college or university. Does this apply to students that have already graduated from undergrad? Or am I just being paranoid
  9. Doing what if you dont mind me asking? and like full-time?
  10. For those of you that did not pursue a Masters degree or grad school, what do you do/ what did you do during gap years after undergrad?
  11. Im in a similar boat. I am wondering what you guys did during those years before med while you weren't in undergrad anymore? Did you guys work full-time?
  12. Has everyone submitted an app to UBC already? I just found out that they do rolling admissions through their FAQ page.... is it even worth submitting an app at this point?
  13. I am an OOP - sorry for the confusion. Ahh I see, thank you guys for the information!
