    Mine doesn't say anything about "conditional". It shows a green checkmark with a response date of June 1st and link to complete a residence app. I've already completed my BSc (I've been out of school for 1 year) if that helps.

    Hey! So just to follow up I actually sent an email to the admissions to inquire about my position on the waitlist and the response I got was: "Decisions for the waitlist should be sent out no later than early next week."

    I'm not sure the exact answer to your question but just to give you some context: I graduated last year and in the final year I was only taking 3 courses per semester. I also took a full year course in the Summer both before and after my 4th year. I was recently accepted to Western's accelerated nursing program and I am currently waiting on McMaster and Queen's.

    Just got an offer of admission to Western's accelerated nursing program!! I saw the acceptance on my Student Account (haven't received an email or ouac yet) For anyone in the future reading this and is curious about my GPA, I have a 3.9/4.0 in the last 10.0 university credits. I also did not take a full course load in my last year of university (took 3 courses per semester, then a full course in the Summer both before and after my 4th year). For CASPer, not sure how much Western weighs it but I felt okay after doing it. I remember the first section threw me off a bit but I think some of my other sections were a lot stronger. There is a lot of good free advice and examples online as to how to approach the CASPer test (don't pay for any of those casper tutoring services if you can, totally not necessary). My offer of admission expires May 22. Western will be my backup as I am interested in attending McMaster as my first choice. As of now, I'm still waiting to hear back from them. But this acceptance gives me some hope because McMaster's admission requirements were essentially the same as Western's.

    Hey, curious as to why you're ruling out Western? Also if you don't mind sharing, what was your GPA that got you accepted to Queen's?

    Haha I totally feel you! All you need is that one acceptance to your top school (or anywhere for me personally) and the weight will be lifted off your shoulders. April is gonna feel even slower with this quarantine.

    Ah, good luck dude! We're all in this together. Hoping to hear back from places soon but with this pandemic I feel like stuff is being delayed. My Western OT application results were pushed back 15 days.

    CONGRATS! I wonder how these acceptance processes work. I'm just a little concerned now because I also applied to Western with about 3.9/4.0 but I haven't received an acceptance. I really hope the fact that I took a reduced course load last year doesn't screw me over...
  10. Hello, This is geared towards those that have received acceptances in previous years from either Mac, Western, or Queen's accelerated programs. I was just wondering what your GPAs were (both cumulative and last 2 years)? I'm only asking to get an idea of whether or not I may be competitive enough, especially considering my lacking ECs (I've really only done hospital volunteering for 4 years, some tutoring on the side, some research volunteering, and a camp counselor a few summers ago). Any input would be super appreciated!
