ATTENTION! ALL physiotherapist, students, and anyone who can help me!


Recommended Posts

Hi, I’m in Windsor Ontario, Canada. I am doing my undergraduate degree in kinesiology and will be applying next year to physiotherapy graduate school. I really need advice. For anyone who reviews application, is a physiotherapist or someone who recently got accepted, please help me. Any tips would help as I’ve wanted to do since childhood as it changed my life. I know grades are a big deal so I am focused on that. I am also working as a student athletic therapist for the university’s volleyball team. Please let me know what is realistic and can guarantee admission considering I have a year and so to make my self competitive. Thank you so much!

I did varsity training as one of my most important experiences going into applications and got into 2 schools last term. I am currently starting my first year at the University of Ottawa. For me varsity training was about 400 hours where as the rest of my experiences were less than 50 hours total. My application was heavily reliant on that trainer experience (my professional reference came from there as well) and my GPA (3.91cum and 3.96sub). Feel free to reach out for any other questions.

3.96sGPA.  I am shocked you got in!

In all seriousness, I cringe everytime someone posts a GPA this high and says they got accepted.  Like of course you'd be accepted with a GPA that high.

if it makes you feel better i got in with a 3.72 sGPA and 3.37 GPA 

Which school?  You must have had a lot of experience.  I've been trying for the past year and a half to get any shadowing and volunteering experience but I have had zero success.  I have tried everything, calling, going in person to hand my resume and CV...to about 60 clinics....only to be told they can't cuz COVID.  To say I'm frustrated is an understatement.  Why?  Because the PT schools really won't give a damn about my situation.  I have contacted them so I know this for a fact.
