  1. Do you have any questions or are you here to brag? You have a perfect cGPA and decent volunteering experience.
  2. You’re kidding right? GPA is a lot more important than anything else. You need a certain gpa each year and if you meet that gpa then your volunteer work only then starts to matter somewhat. I know people who had so much physio volunteering but couldn’t get in because of their 3.7ish sGPA. Maybe their Casper was below average I don’t know.
  3. Which school? You must have had a lot of experience. I've been trying for the past year and a half to get any shadowing and volunteering experience but I have had zero success. I have tried everything, calling, going in person to hand my resume and CV...to about 60 clinics....only to be told they can't cuz COVID. To say I'm frustrated is an understatement. Why? Because the PT schools really won't give a damn about my situation. I have contacted them so I know this for a fact.
  4. 3.96sGPA. I am shocked you got in! In all seriousness, I cringe everytime someone posts a GPA this high and says they got accepted. Like of course you'd be accepted with a GPA that high.
  5. So I would be volunteering at ltc as a general volunteer or should I look for something that will ensure I work directly with the physio there? Because i don’t want to just volunteer in a social way only because that probably won’t help my application I think?
  6. Anyone here applying for next cycle unable to get any physio related volunteering? How am I supposed to get any clinic to accept me with COVID? I’ve reached out to over 50 clinics in my area and beyond and it’s either no thanks or we would but can’t because of Covid. I had one interview at a clinic and what’s funny they kept asking me about my physio experience....I’m thinking in my head like dude I’m here to get experience how am I supposed to get experience anywhere if every place wants experience to begin with??? Hospitals aren’t taking any volunteers.
  7. Not gonna lie, reading updates from people with 3.95+ sGPA is hilarious. Like of course you’re gonna accepted somewhere it’s guaranteed with those marks. Everyone knows that.
  8. What the hell? Maybe you did poorly in Casper? Maybe its your references (you said they were average at best, right?)? How does one not get in with a 3.85 anywhere in ON?
  9. I hate when schools pull stunts like this. If you prefer people with a full course load just say so in your website instead of keeping applicants in the dark and being secretive about it. It’s completely unnecessary and uncalled for to act like this.
  10. Lol if physio and ot schools only accept those with full course loads I am utterly screwed. I shouldn’t bother with applying then
  11. Yea you’re wrong. These services have people that sit down with you and ask you many questions for at least an hour. They ask about volunteering , and everything else that is relevant to the statement. Then they work with you to write up the statement. So the end product is completely based on your unique experiences.
  12. Do people indepndently write up their personal submission statement for Western and Queen's? Or are there companies, services, or individuals that you can pay to help you write it up? There are services like that for medical school so I'd imagine maybe there might be something like that for PT and OT.
