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 also want to echo what some people have said above. I applied FOUR TIMES and finally just got accepted. I've spent the last three years taking courses to upgrade my GPA and doing everything I could

Please post your GPA for accept/waitlist/reject and include if you are out of province/in province or International :).  Congrats to those getting offers, hopefully PT will be next!

I was accepted with a 3.9 gpa and I’m a bc applicant

Got waitlisted at U of A. 3.77 sGPA...

 

this year they have a 150 person waitlist instead of their usual 100 one.

 

what do you guys make of this year’s increased number of waitlisted applicants? Is it a good thing or not, for those whose hoping to get in?

Got my acceptance from U of A OT today. I'm unsure if they calculate GPA the same as ORPAS but my ORPAS sGPA is 3.71. For those of you worried about full time versus part time course loads affecting admission, I did not do a full time course load in my third and fourth years of undergrad but still managed to get in (and I know U of A explicitly stated they show preference to those who did full course loads).

I've already accepted my UBC offer though so I will be declining. Hopefully someone from the waitlist hears back soon :)

Great!! Thanks for letting us know. So I wonder if we’ll hear back periodically as people decline or if they will not tell us about movement until may17. I was also waitlisted for u of a OT with a 3.7 (ORPAS) gpa.

I have extensive healthcare background as I’ve been an RN for two years though which I think helps my lower gpa.

Hey! I think they will only start releasing the accepted waitlist offers after May 17th. I think they’re going to wait until the Ontario schools send out their offers.

For those of you who got in or waitlisted for U of A OT, do you guys think I have a chance for the 2022 cycle with a 3.6 GPA? I already spent an additional year upgrading and took 5 courses/ semester (ended with a 4.0 gpa for that year) so I think it should be okay?

Got accepted for OT :) 3.82 sGPA (according to ORPAS, I don’t know how Alberta calculates it) and a ton of related experience. I’m out of province, from Ontario

Has anyone applied to Dal PT and received an email acceptance/decline? Their website says offers will be released by April-end, but I haven't heard anything.

I applied and haven't heard back from them... I was waitlisted last year so I'm hoping this time
