  1. From my experiences with NOSM med applications they recieved about 500 additional applications (almost 2000 instead of 1500 or something like that)
  2. I applied to all but UofT and got emails from all but Queen's. Ottawa, Westen and mac all emailed me
  3. Absolutely already do and I'm a big fan btw. I'd love if you could answer a few questions. 1. Any plans on interviewing student from other programs in Ontario and 2. Are certain programs better regarded in the eyes of employers. Just trying to have better idea of what programs have to offer.
  4. Fantastic I have been watching for over a year now simply looking for other school perspectives such as mac and western
  5. To say that it's unfair because you can't find a quiet space I think is false if you absolutely could not find a way to get a room to yourself at home it's understandable. Not everyone has the luxury of living in a detached house no neighbors etc... However most community libraries should be able to offer you a quiet space free of charge. If you have concentration issues (ADD, ADHD etc...) the Casper team actually allows certain accomodations for those conditions if you communicate with them. Saying it's unfair to people who have hard time typing it's like saying interviews are unfair to those
  6. CASPer is how they tend to replace the logistical nightmare that is interviews. If you think about it yeah Casper is 100+$ but imagine having to interview for 4 or 5 schools and travel to each it comes up to a boat load more.... Ottawa's language tests on the other hand completely ridiculous. I completed a bilingual BSc program at a bilingual university with a bilingual certification on my degree and they still want me to pass language tests... That's the real money grab considering its almost more than Casper
  7. Wondering if there are any current/past PT or OT students still on the forum that could shed light on their experience in different rehab programs in Ontario and across the country. A lot of first time applicants haven't had the chance to tour schools attend open house or even visit the cities they might end up in. And they probably won't get the chance. Hoping to get more information out there so that we have as much information as possible when it comes time to make a choice. Hope to hear from all the rehab students out there
  8. These are usually firm requirements set out by the program similar to GPA cutoffs. Only bet is to retake a statistics class before admission
  9. Applied + (PT or OT?): PT at McMaster, Ottawa, Queen’s, Western, UofT (Maybe) Accepted: Waitlisted: Rejected: 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 over my last 3 years.
  10. Les deux sont généralement plus faibles que le reste de la province Ex en Physio 5-8% d'applicants rentre dans les programmes anglais vs. 20-30% des candidats qui entre à ottawa
  11. Si jamais tu vise aller hors province dans un programme de maitrise tu peut toujours tenté l'Université d'Ottawa. Peu de gens font demande comparé aux autres et donc plus facile d'y arriver aprés le bac
