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

I applied and interviewed with the UK! applied to brunel and oxford along with others. I applied in december and interviewed with Brunel early january, and have still yet to hear from oxford. Brunel interviewed me through the phone and it was really short only lasted 15 minutes, and got accepted! 

Hey! Did you end up going to the Uk? If yes, how is your experience?

Hi everyone,

For those who completed the CasPer test can you please share your experience or tips? How did you prep for it and was it difficult? 

Hey! I took the CASPer last year and I got into Western for OT (only one that asks for it for OT) so I assume I did okay. The practice questions they have on their website are probably the best ones for practice, but you can find others else where too. I would practice typing quick responses because the questions go pretty quick. Other than practicing timing though, I think they're just looking for you to consider both sides of each situation, and comment on that. That's my perception at least. Hopefully that helps a little :)

Does anyone know if a "W' on your transcript affects your application? I am currently enrolled in classes and debating whether to drop one class just in case if may affect my GPA. Any thoughts?

Hi! I applied last year with a W in the last 20 courses when I applied, and a total of 5 Ws throughout my undergrad (big yikes). It didn't seem to have impacted my applications for Ontario schools and UofA!

Hey guys, I am applying to OT this year from BC and was hoping to speak to anyone who applied to the PhD/MOT program either at Western or McMaster or anyone who moved from BC to Ontario for MOT/MPT school. I’m just curious about your experience thus far etc. Thanks ! 

Hi! Feel free to send me a message. I moved from BC this summer to attend OT at Queen’s

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone re-submitted the same personal submission that they've used in previous application cycles and got accepted. I was waitlisted at Queen's University during the 2020 application cycle and I believe my response to their personal submission questions were strong, because I had them reviewed by current OT students and registered OTs - however, my references and experiences were weak during the 2020 application cycle. Thanks in advance!

Hi everyone! I would like to apply to UBC PT but noticed that they have the prerequisite grade of B for statistics. I got a B-... do I still have a chance or they won't budge on that?

These are usually firm requirements set out by the program similar to GPA cutoffs. Only bet is to retake a statistics class before admission

Hi everyone! I have my CASPer booked for Jan 5 and just wanted to post to ask if anyone can provide any tips/additional sources on the best way they found to prepare :)

Hey! I have mine on the same date! What I found useful is looking at the practice questions and modules on the webiste. Time has been an issue for me but last application cycle I felt more calm and sure of my answers because I was true to my personality.

Nice!! Good luck on yours :) Thanks so much! I guess I will also have to practice typing fast so I can get all my ideas down

Hi! Is anyone here reapplying to UBC physio? I'm at the Additional Questions page and theres a part where it asks if you've applied in the past. When I choose the "yes" option, it prompts you to read the next question. There is no next question, other than the statements at the end that you have to accept whether you say yes OR no. 

Not sure if I'm missing something here, I've tried to load up my application in both safari AND chrome and no difference. I figure another reapplicant probably would have reached out to them regarding this already, and if it actually was a big deal they would have fixed that, but don't really want to assume so. Thanks in advance!!
