  1. Speaking from experience my school has sent a lot of students to Ottawa rehab over the years and there are a few things that stand out. A lot of people don't believe their french is adequate or don't have any french at all. On the other hand some fluent French people are hesitant about having that cross between non-fluent french speakers in a French program and how those people can interfere with their learning (from personal experience not an issue but it is something that worries people) I accepted Ottawa looking for that diverse experience and that cross between different perspectives
  2. Applied + (PT or OT?): PT at McMaster, Ottawa, Queen’s, Western, UofT (Maybe) Accepted: Ottawa,Queens Waitlisted: Western Rejected: McMaster GPA:c-gpa and s-gpa : c-gpa: 3.91 s-gpa: 3.96 Perceived strength of essays/interviews/references: 400+ hours as student trainer for varsity program. Was able to speak about key cases, what I learnt from them etc… Also spent time working with medical students as a mock patient for ultrasound training. Non-PT community work for holiday programs. References from the varsity PT I worked with and prof I had for 3 classes

  5. Some schools are more open to different degree paths so look into those and in pretty sure even the ones who care want 2 years of full time studies at some point... There lots of options out there I wouldn't worry
  6. It's not about living with parents and not having bills a lot of people work and manage full time course loads... And also bills don't go away because it's a master's degree so you have to show you can make it through the program... And if you need more time to figure out what you want to do it's outside your degree and won't affect your application... In the end the they're training professionals and they would hate to waste the space on someone who can't handle the heat
  7. Can't really blame them taking the applicants that show the ability to handle a full course load at the undergraduate level means your selected cohort can handle the program... If you had to extend your degree for reasons such as caring for a family or other extenuating circumstances they have forms you can fill out to explain the reason... They just don't want people who could barely handle a bachelor's to enter into a program they might not be up for academically.
  8. It depends if you did it after completing your degree and simply taking extra classes or if you took 5 years to complete your degree. If you took classes after graduation it's not the same
  9. From my experiences with NOSM med applications they recieved about 500 additional applications (almost 2000 instead of 1500 or something like that)
