I'm also curious about this! I used the email on the website (not the OT admissions email) to accept my offer but have yet to hear back. Hopefully thats the right one!

I sent my email to ot admissions and I got the reply like couple hours later from them. This is what I got!

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

I can't believe we've had to wait so long since we submitted our applications in Jan haha. I have been anxiously waiting! Best of luck to us all!!

Just writing here to see if anyone could help me/have suggestions for my situation. I completed my application for Dal OT in October and as far as I know my application is 100% completed. But when I checked Dal Online, it shows that I only have one reference letter. I emailed OTadmissions and Kelly told me that they received no reference letters (?). So I emailed Dal Graduate Studies and Electronic References to confirm and they told me that they have received both reference letters. I copied the email and sent it to Kelly who told me she would look into it. Almost a month later I still haven't received her email so I checked the forum and saw that people already got their letters of acceptance. I'm a NS resident and my sGPA is 3.9/4.3 so I'm surprised that I still haven't gotten anything from the school. I emailed Kelly again on this past thursday and she told me that nobody will be receiving anything information regarding their status of application until the end of May (?) - whereas some of you (from Atlantic Canada) have already gotten a response from the school - and there was no words about whether my situation has been resolved. I'm very disappointed in the way the school communicates regarding this situation as well as their transparency. And I'm worried that they haven't even looked at my application since they thought that the letters were missing. I'm feeling really down atm because I know I have a strong application but it may not have been considered. When I emailed grad studies they told me to email OT and when I email OT nobody answers my questions properly. I just don't know who to contact at this point. I'd really appreciate if someone has any insight into this and congrats on those who have received your acceptance so far.

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?  

Well each school is slightly different. Besides uoft, the other PT school's put more emphasis on CASPer (don't quote me on that tho). So I might of not done the best on CASPer. Plus, for uoft 3.85 is pretty below average. Not saying that you can't get in with that, but you just have to do really good on the CAP exam. With the higher cutoffs for uoft, I'm expecting the average sgpa to be higher as well this year, but I could be wrong

I'm sorry to hear that! I had a similar issue last year with dalhousie. They said one of my references was missing even though I asked my prof if he sent it in. Let me know if you find a solution. Best of luck to you!

I applied to Dal PT this year. I have to say the graduate application system in Dal was probably the worst compared to all other schools I have applied. Very old fashioned, not up to date with the technology and pretty low efficiency too. Therefore, I wasn't surprised that MMI was canceled this year very last minute too. Your stats is really strong! My fingers are crossed for you.

Omg I'm so sorry to hear that. Have you tried calling the admissions office? If your application is complete, then you shouldn't have to lose out because of error from their end!

Honestly I emailed Kelly about a question I had about my application this year and received a rather rude response... it made me decide not to apply to Dal at all. I really hope your situation gets resolved!!

I tried calling multiple times and nobody responded because everyone is working at home. I totally agree. It wasn't my fault that the error happened. I'm gonna ask around to see who else I can contact. I'm just frustrated because when I email someone they either told me to contact OT or forwarded my email to them without trying to help.

This is been my experience dealing with Dal admissions. At this point I don't wanna go there anymore because of their bad communications. But I'm gonna try my best to get a proper answer from them. It's not only unfair to me but also to other students who are applying/will be in the future.

Hi! Can anyone offer some clarification into how ouac calculates GPA with part-time summer courses? I don't really understand the description they have on their website and I'm looking to apply to OT next year. I took a few part-time summer courses that I hoped would count for my sGPA calculation. Do they count individually or is it the average of all the part time courses together? Thanks! :)

Hi current OT student here! They basically move backwards to count your last 20 credits (1 credit being a half year course) however sometimes this doesn't perfectly align with an 4 even semesters if people took summer courses or courses after graduation which is why they have to average sometimes. For example if you have 17 credits toward your SGPA and in order to get the last 3 credits you need to dip into a semester that you took 5 courses, they would average your GPA over that semester and multiply by 3 instead of randomly picking 3 courses. As far as I know your summer courses will be counted individually but if they have to dip into a semester to get to 20 credits that is what they will average. I know it's very confusing hopefully this helps!

I was in a similar situation, but they took the average of my entire second year as my last 4 credits instead of just the most recent (winter) semester.

You might be right, my whole year average was the same as my last term average, so in my case, I won't know which average they ended up using.

Hey everyone, 

Hoping someone can answer my application question on here- I am a Nova Scotia resident and I applied to Dal OT, but I haven't heard anything back yet, but I know of several other Atlantic residents who have... Im currently taking the physiology pre-req, so could this be a reason I haven't heard back? Or is it because I'm probably waitlisted or rejected? 

 

Thanks in advance :)

Hi everyone,

I am not applying until next application cycle but I just wanted to confirm something about sGPA calculation. I'm just in the process of sorting out my courses for next year and I just want to make sure I'm putting myself in a good position to ensure that I can keep my GPA high. I am going to be applying next year, which for reference I just completed my fourth year (doing a fifth year to boost my average, get more PT experience as a uni student, adding a psychology minor onto my degree, etc.). Looking back at my last 20 credits (half year courses) at the time of applying:

5th year FALL 2021 semester: 2 credits 

4th year WINTER 2021 semester (the semester that just finished): 4 credits (total = 6)

4th year FALL 2020 semester: 4 credits (total = 10)

3rd year WINTER 2020 semester: 5 credits (total = 15)

3rd year FALL 2019 semester: 5 credits (total = 20)

Would that be accurate? They count your fall semester grades at the time of application correct?
