I know everyone is really nervous about the decisions that are about to come out. Just know if you don’t get accepted, it doesn’t mean you aren’t smart and it doesn’t mean you should give up! It’s a v

Hi everyone! With a lot of admissions decisions coming out soon/tonight-ish I just wanted to drop the number for some crisis lines as news can bring up feelings of distress.    Crisis phone

Anyone else nervous for tomorrow’s results (midnight) in Ontario

Dal OT applicants, I saw someone say their application status changed to "decision made" instead of written notification to follow... Has this been the case for anyone else? Here is what mine shows:image.png.e13270f8908c442218778769ce350977.png

Mine looks exactly like yours. Just checked it again now.

Received my rejection letter from UBC today at 3:04 pm (PST). 

Congratulations to everyone who got in!

Did anyone get waitlisted?

Does anyone feel it was actually more competitive this year? I feel as though last years applicants were hesitant to apply and waited until this year.

I'll be back and applying again next year. :)

That's too bad about UBC for you. :-( 

I don't know if it was significantly more competitive this year or not, but if it was, it wouldn't be due to any hesitation from last year's applicants. All of the applications were due long before any one knew that the school year would be negatively affected. Even if a couple of people somehow foresaw it, it's so hard to get into these programs that I don't think they would have waited anyways. As well, all of the programs still took full class sizes, without allowing deferrals, so the same amount of people got in last year as the number of spots available this year.

Hey everyone! I just had a quick question regarding Dal's prerequisite courses. I know it's kind of late to be asking these questions but I've seen discrepancies between the FAQ's pdf and the Graduate Studies How to Apply Page. The FAQ's pdf says that 6 credit hours (full credit) in physiology and 3 credit hours (half credit) in anatomy are required whereas the How to Apply page says that only 3 credit hours (half credit) are required for both physiology and anatomy. I can't remember what the supplementary application form asked for and was wondering if anyone does?

Hey when I emailed Kelly (the admissions officer), she said you need 6 credits in human physiology.

Hi there! On the supplementary info form it asked which human phys credit you'd like to include in the prereq GPA calculation and said that it must have a 3 credit minimum. This translates to a single semester course at Dal.

Oh interesting... I think I remember choosing a half credit for both human physiology and anatomy if that's what the supplementary info form asked for. Maybe you can choose a full year course (6 hour credit) if that's the only physiology course you took in 3rd/4th year. Either way, I took a full year physiology course in my upper years but I didn't choose it because my GPA was better on the half credit. I hope that's okay.

They changed it! It used to be 6 but they changed it to 3. You may have been looking at an older page

I probably was haha! I opened the FAQ's pdf they have on the admissions website and had a mini heart attack when I saw the 6 credit hours.
