  1. For physio: March. They don't specify any more than that, though last year they weren't out until March 17.
  2. You've got a great attitude! I was rejected from PT this year (U of A), and in all honesty, it sucks. But, its going to be great. Now, I've got a window of time that I can use to my advantage! I'm not sure how GPA/sGPA is affected for U of T, but for U of A, courses taken after a degree certainly count. Because my first couple degrees had no science/anatomy/biology subject matter, I've done all my prereqs as after degree courses, and they are all counting towards my GPA. Although you are not relocating, it might be useful to look at what other schools require for courses. U of M PT
  3. Definitely check out the different pre-reqs and program lengths, but also check out residency requirements. What U of A considers an Albertan applicant, and what U of S considers a Saskatchewan residents are a bit different. If cost of living is important, check out the differences between cities. I'd love to be on the west coast and go to UBC, but a) I don't have physics and b) living in Vancouver is not within my budget. You may not have a lot of extra time when in school, but if there are activities that you love to do, like kayaking or skiing or biking, check out their availabil
  4. U of A PT: if you got accepted, and you want to be a physiotherapist, do it! A few semesters that are modified are not going to make or break you. Your learning might be slightly less detailed in one area, but way richer in another. You might even find that the changes that they implement really work for you. Look at this as your first test of pt school resilience: if you got in, you can handle this! Also, tuition is going up an average of 7% this year for graduate programs, and another 5-10% the year after (and I can't imaging they're going to stop the increases after that), so start no
  5. Not OT, but here's my experience: I took a year between high school and college to travel and volunteer, it remains one of the best decision I've ever made. I started post-secondary at a college, and my first degree took 5 years. I took a year between finishing my first degree and starting my second to travel more and work and live somewhere different, and I'm glad I did then too. My second degree (education) took two years. After my second degree, yep, I took some time to travel. I worked in wildfire during many of these years, and then as a substitute teacher. I really hadn'
  6. If you check CASPer FAQ, it mentions that all test scores are processed and distributed to academic programs as a group. Now we know that the U of A can move on to the next step of their deliberation process, and hopefully hear some decisions soon!
  7. Congrats on getting in! According to the website: "Applicants who have been placed on the waitlist are required to submit official transcripts showing any outstanding winter/spring grades, prerequisite courses, or degree completion to the department by June 30th of the admission year. These documents must be emailed as PDF's to mscot@ualberta.ca. Applicants who do not complete this requirement by June 30th will be removed from the waitlist." If you need transcripts in by June 30th for waitlisted applicants, I imagine its the same or sooner for non-waitlisted.
  8. Thanks for the heads up! Out of curiosity, what is the window given to accept or decline the U of A PT MMI?
