A bit off topic, but this forum post (the 2020 version) has over double the pages of the 2019 one. 

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

Hi Everyone! Last night I received MSc. OT acceptances from UofT, Queen's & McMaster. I've also been accepted to Western as well, but only for the combined OT/Ph.D program. After a lot of ref

Accepted to Ottawa PT and OT, Dal OT

Waitlisted for Dal PT (top half for nb applicants) and Mac PT (#35)

GPA: sgpa: 3.61 cgpa: 3.77 (according to ORPAS) sgpa: 3.7 cpgpa: 3.91 (for dal)

Physio was my first choice program so I'm incredibly happy to have been accepted into a physio program! I have already paid my deposit at dal OT but will now be declining my offer so there will be some waitlist movement for you folks! Ottawa was always my second choice following dal but with the accreditation issues if dal offers me a position I will most likely be declining. I also like the idea of Mac as they're known for rehab sciences but not sure what the movement on the waitlist would be like... any idea?

It told me my spot at the end of the first paragraph in the PDF document attached to the email.

OHH okay, I haven't even gotten an email yet, my Mosaic still has the pending green circle :(

Going to be accepting my offer for Mac OT. To those who didn’t receive an offer don’t lose hope! I was rejected to the only school I applied to last year and this year I was able to secure two acceptances and two waitlists.

I was accepted to U of T (St. George campus) and Mac for OT, however I will not be accepting them.  Good luck to you all and hopefully somebody will be hearing back soon about getting off the waitlist!   

Just curious, why?

Accepted to Queens OT! Also got waitlisted for Western OT and Toronto OT. 

If anyone has any experience with Queens OT please let me know or contact me privately if that is more comfortable for you (if that is a thing you can do on here). Congrats to everyone who has heard back, and if you're still waiting on news don't give up! Take a breather from the refresh button at some point today and enjoy the sunshine :) 

cGPA: 3.6 sGPA: 3.75

Congratulations. I just got rejected from Queens OT. Do you know if it matters that my education is from outside Canada? I'm puzzled because my WES equivalent GPA was 3.86 and I had a ton of Canadian volunteer experience.

Does anyone know an international candidate in their OT/PT program? Should I just give up?

Same boat as you both! Deciding between UofT, McMaster, and Queens. Let me know what factors you consider for pros and cons! 

I know that for UofT it's all going to be online for the first term. And then they also have the LEAP placements instead of normal placements so I'm thinking about that too 

I'm planning to accept my UofT offer for PT. The email they sent us and on the SGS website mentioned that they are still monitoring the situation and hopes to return to in-person class in fall. I was wondering where did you find out that UofT OT will be online for the first term?

SGPA: 3.95 CGPA: 3.80

Accepted: Western PT 

Waitlisted: Queens PT

Rejected: University of Toronto PT

 

Im extremely puzzled by these results as I thought my application was extremely strong and that I performed well on the CAP test. Based on these results I will most likely accept my offer to CMCC. Does anyone know if I would be able to get information on why I was flat out rejected from UofT?

Accepted to UofT (St. George campus), McMaster, and Western, all for OT. Rejected at Queens. Will most likely be accepting UofT, which will open up some spots. Congrats to everyone who has received responses, and all the best to those still waiting.

S-GPA: 3.83, C-GPA: 3.21

Thank you so much! I'm sorry to hear about that, your grades and volunteer experience sound amazing though, that's really impressive! I don't know if the education location is considered, I really wish I had an answer for you regarding that! Best of luck : ) Someone else in this thread might know though so if you do & are reading this please let us know!
