  1. I am planning to get provincial/federal student loans for sure. I hadn't considered getting a back-up line of credit, but this thread has made me think I should look into it just in case. Is anyone planning to work while in school? I worked all through my undergrad which really decreased my dependence on loans. I would love it if I could get by without working, but the idea of no income for 2 full years is terrifying and I also want to minimize my debt as much as possible. Covid has definitely thrown a wrench into my plans though and I'm not really sure what I'm going to do. What are you
  2. First off, I want to say that all your fears and concerns are completely valid. I too, share many of them. I have always been a pen-and-paper note taker and I hated the online classes we had to do for the last part of the semester. I was also looking forward to becoming part of the PT student community with all the other new students. The lack of predictability and especially the lack any kind of control makes our situation particularly hard. However, without sounding too pollyanna-ish I think it is important that we all take some time to consider that there are numerous ways that this c
  3. I have also been accepted at the Calgary campus. I feel a little concerned too, but it has occurred to me that U of A may be able to handle the shift to online a little more smoothly given that they are already familiar with distance instruction because of the satellite campuses. Of course it's not the same as the being in class and interacting with the instructors and your fellow students, but I suspect they'll be extremely hesitant to accept deferrals since that will have ramifications for all subsequent years.
  4. I just declined my offer to U of A so the waitlist will be moving by at least one spot I think! Best of luck!
  5. Anyone else headed to the Calgary campus for U of A PT? Feel free to reply or PM me!
  6. I can only speak to U of A because that is where I applied. In their FAQ section they have stated that they will not be considering any grades from Winter 2020 in the GPA calculation, so I don't think taking a credit or grade will matter in that context. As for your last credits, I'm not sure how the calculation would be done, I would email admissions about that because it can be complex depending on what courses are included etc. However, if it all possible you may want to do at least one or two semesters with 5 courses if you have not done so at some point during your undergrad. From the web
  7. The last CASPer tests were only written on the 15th and they say it takes about 3 weeks to get the marks in, so I can't imagine we'll hear anything until the 2nd week of May at the earliest.
  8. No update on my account, it still says decision pending. Email came at 4:10PM.
  9. They said they haven't decided the weighting of the CASPer yet, however it will likely be similar to their previous practice. So I guess it will still be worth quite a bit? Maybe they'll let us know once they've made a decision on weighting.
