  1. Hi! I'm planning on going into OT. However, every OT I come across has done their schooling abroad. Has anyone done theirs in Canada and is willing to share the process? PT seems to have more descriptive and consistent requirements. What is the GPA cut off, do your EC's matter? And how many schools did you apply to and where was your undergrad done? Thanks in advance
  2. Hey OT/PT hopefuls, I am anxiously awaiting to hear back about interview invitations from various PT Schools across Canada. I study in a small town so there are not many other prospective PT/OT students around to do mock interviews, and I was wondering if anyone would be interested in making a facebook group (or similar) where we do video chats with Mock MMI/Answer Feedback? I've read about the importance of actually practicing answering questions and think this could be very helpful for students in a similar situation! *given that most if not all in-person interviews are canc
  3. Hi everyone!! I am currently applying for Dalhousie and they request for an MCAT score. I wrote the MCAT twice and got the same score. The first time I did well in CARS, the second time I did well in the sciences. Does anyone know which one Dalhousie prefers for applications? Thank you in advance!
  4. I have read in several places on premed 101 (and heard from several other students) that multiple family medicine programs allow you to add applications to additional sites (within their program) after interviewing. I am having trouble finding reference to this within the carms program description pages. I am wondering if anyone knows: 1. Which FM programs you can add additional site applications to late? (Particularly interested in UBC, Dalhousie, NOSM, and Memorial.) 2. How to logistically do this---assuming within carms portal exactly as you applied for other programs? 3. If
  5. Just wondering what the general consensus is on the available general surgery programs in the country, which are considered “the best” and what are the pros and cons of each?
  6. Hi, I was just wondering how they mark your supplemental form. What would score high in that section? Is there some form of rubric that anyone knows of? Similar thing with the essay. Thanks!

  9. Premed! Are you struggling with your medical school interviews? Have you been previously rejected after the medical school interviews? Do you want to turn your interview rejections into admissions? I get it. When I applied to medical school the first time around, I had 5 interviews, but was rejected by all 5 schools. Sad ad depressed, I was lost how to to turn that around. However, I came up with a specific approach to interviewing for medical schools. Using that same approach, I again had 5 interviews the following year. The difference is that this time, I got into
  10. Hi everyone, I have some concerns regarding my overall application and was hoping for some feedback, insight, & suggestions/advice. My undergrad career has been a mountain climb, which is shown by my annual GPA trend: 1st Year: 1.91 2nd Year: 2.17 3rd Year: 2.82 4th Year: 3.68 5th Year: TBD I will be entering my 5th year and am hoping to score even higher than my 4th year (3.68). For some time I had a misconception that Western looks at your two best years and requires the overall GPA to be 3.7 OVER the 2 years. I recently heard that they requ
  11. I have applied for OT entry level, but have't heard anything yet. Please contact with m if you are an international applicant to OT in Dalhousie! Thank you!!
  12. Does anyone have any experience navigating the course load discussions? It says you need to have taken 10 courses in your last two years of undergrad (so 5 each term). My program would split courses into double so they could squeeze more classes into our degree (ie. FSN 706 would be two classes on two different subjects and we'd get two different marks). I did what most students did and did all my electives in my last year part time. So... i don't meet that course load requirement. They said they will allow for it if your program is structured differently, but it's a B.
  13. Any past or current Dal OT students know what their MScOT GPA cut-off was the last couple of years? Or are willing to share what GPA you had for your admission? Thanks!
  14. Hello fellow DAL OT 2018 Prospective Students! Wanted to start a forum to hear about others who are waiting to hear back from DAL OT from the 2018 application process. I did not receive an email of confirming my application was received (dropped off in person), however my DAL online says status incomplete. I'm guessing this is because I am in the process of completing my Anatomy and Physiology prerequisites. Wondering if anyone else is in the same boat or what your status is? Best of luck! Halifax, NS

  16. I wanted to make a list of medical school requirements (what/how many courses you need, what year they look at, any special eligibility to drop grades (e.g. UofT if you take a full courseload, you get to drop your lowest mark during that year), if school looks at your summer GPA. I have a makeshift list so far, but if anybody could add to it that would be great <3 When people starts adding, I'll finish with a nicer looking chart. Just need help with UBC Dalhousie (NOTHING): To be eligible to apply to Dalhousie Medical School, a full course load of five full classes in each of the two

  19. Hi guys! (sorry in advance for the long-winded post). I'm planning to apply to Dalhousie for OT 2017 admission, however I have to take the physiology (6 credit hours) and anatomy (3 credit hours) pre-requisites in order to apply. I will also apply to a few other schools (U of T/Queens/McMaster) and UBC), however Dal is my top choice (just based on location). Thus, I'm stuck spending this semester (sept 2016) and next (Jan 2017) getting those pre-reqs! I am trying to decide from which online university I should take physiology, as I am having trouble getting into any UVic or Camosun Phy
  20. Hi guys, I am very new to the process (new to the research stage lol) and just wanted to throw some feelers out to see if I could potentially be a competitive applicant GPA wise. I have a few more pre req's to get before applying. I'm thinking about applying to Dalhousie's Dental program for the Fall 2017 class. I am a Dalhousie student with a cGPA is a 3.69/4.3. Just finished my third year. I had a rough first and second year, so that is why my GPA is so low First Year --> Fall: 3.42 Winter:3.54 Second Year --> Fall: 3.67 Winter:3.34 Third Year --> Fall: 4.08 Winter: 4.22 Does Da

  24. Hello, Can someone tell me if Dal rounds your gpa to the nearest 10th from each year before calculating the average or is it just rounded after? For example, say I have a 3.88 one year and 3.97 the next year. Would the calculation be 1. (3.88+3.97) /2= 3.925 which is then rounded to 3.9 2. (3.9+4.0)/2=3.95 which is then rounded to 4.0 Thanks!
