Applied: McGill OT Accepted: McGill OT Rejected: Sub GPA: 3.55   So excited to meet everyone in the fall and to make the big move to Montreal from Ontario!!

Is it just me or does it look like people who relatively lower GPAs were accepted to Queen's, whereas people with high GPAs were rejected? Is it because Queen's looks more at the personal questions?

I just copied this thread from last year; it was cool to see the competition and have any questions answered:   In preparation for the big day I'm starting this thread in hopes everyone will share t

Second year trying, best of luck to those who made it. Time to reinvent myself. Must have really bombed interviews since I've worked in pt clinics for 12 years. Oh well

INCASE ANYONE IS WONDERING...

 

#0 on the Mac waitlist is a technical glitch. I called Pamela Potts and she told me it's a glitch and in fact, I am number 23.

So for those who are #0, you might wanna give her a call!

 

Yikes! That's terrible. I'm #4 on that waitlist, so hope that number isn't a glitch...

 

Also just heard that I have been put on the waiting list for Queen's.

Applied to : UofA, Uoft, Western, Mac, Dalhousie, Queens and Ottawa (all OT)

Accepted: Queens

Rejected: UofA, Uoft, Western, Mac, Dalhousie

sub GPA: 3.34, cum GPA 3.1

 

Haven't heard from UofOttawa but I did have get interview there.

 

I'm only 24, and have been volunteering in hospital, rehab settings and for non-profit organisations since high school. I had amazing references and think that my essay was very so so. I know my GPA is very low for OT but my 5 yrs of work experience in the government and for a research center at McGill is probably what set me apart. I'm so excited to meet all you OT folks!!!!

 

For all those who apply with low gpas and little hope, just know that sometimes people can focus on other qualities apart from a stellar GPA!

Applied: Queen's, Western, U of T, Ottawa U (all OT)

Accepted:

Waitlist:

Rejected: Queens Western, and U of T.

 

I hope Ottawa replies back, I had the best chance there in the first place since I thought the interview went well. I am not surprised about Western and U of T saying no but for Queens I had experience working with sports teams at university as a student athletic therapist and volunteer work.

 

Are there other experiences I could do to boost my resume? I already completed my undergrad.
