MOT Admissions Update

Admissions Update: August 1, 2018

The MOT 1 class for the 2018-2019 academic year has been filled. Should any student in the class withdraw the seat will be offered to the next individual on our alternate list. Classes for the incoming MOT 1 cohort are scheduled to begin on Thursday, August 23, 2018.

Admissions Update: May 11, 2018

The MOT Selections meeting was held on Thursday, May 10, 2018. Emails will be sent out to all applicants who interviewed in the coming week(s). The timing of decision and waitlist emails will vary. Please refrain from contacting our office to obtain your committee decision or inquire about your placement on the alternate list. An update will be posted here when all offers are confirmed and our Fall 2018 class has been filled.

Admissons Update: April 10, 2018

All of the interview spots have been filled. To receive an interview, candidates were at or above the following GPAs:

 Manitoban:  3.774
 Other Canadian:  3.925

Candidates that have not yet received an email are currently on the alternate list for interview offers.  Based on previous years, we anticipate that interview spots may become available between now and the interview on April 28th. However, it's difficult to predict how many. We will continue to offer to candidates on the alternate list if spots become available up until the interview weekend.

Admissions Update: March 15, 2018

The first round of MOT interview offers has now been extended via email. The minimum GPA to receive an interview was 3.8 in the “Manitoba” category and 4.025 in the “other Canadian” category.  This year no interview offers were extended to candidates in the “International” category. If you are an applicant with a last 60 credit hour GPA above the cut off and you do not see an email please check your junk folder.
It is expected that a second round of interview offers will be extended during the first week in April. An update will be posted here when the interview schedule is filed.
Early decisions will be released to applicants not considered to have a competitive GPA for an interview offer. Waitlisted candidates not receiving an interview offer will have their applications closed after the April 28, 2018 interviews are complete.
The MOT Selections Committee is scheduled to meet on Thursday, May 10th to determine recommendations for the incoming Fall 2018 class.  Decisions are expected to be released to all candidates by email in the weeks following the MOT Selections meeting.
