Hi, I recently got accepted to chiropody and i'm waiting for ultrasound. I was wondering if you guys could help me out there. Basically, there was this post on a different forum saying how do you think it is a dying field because other provinces like Quebec and Alberta have decided to join the profession in favor of specialized doctors. So I was wondering what peoples opinions or views were on this topic? or even better, if someone from chiropody who recently graduated had any insight? Is it really a field where it's so hard to find jobs that it's not really safe to do it?
I don't know about chiropody after but during study it is very intense program and prepare you very well for the job .....

Actually, I heard bad reviews about ultrasound - that it doesn't cover a lot of topics like others colleges (vascular, musculoskeletal., pediatric), they teach only abdominal & obstetrics/ginegocogy , also many students had issues during clinical practice... but it is shorter program...

Although, Michener's reputation is very good generally...

I only got "You are still on the waitlist for this program". No mention of top-ranked candidate. Maybe this means you have better chance of getting in ;) Best of luck!

I also got an email this morning saying I'm a "top-ranked candidate on the waitlist". But what does this mean?!? Did everyone on the waitlist get this email?

My MLS waitlist email didn't say I was a "top candidate" so I imagine you still have some hope :)

With the class sizes so small, does anyone have any numbers on how many people actually graduate?

Does anyone know, how many people they put waitlisted, how many they going to take?

It's my understanding that everyone who got an interview and didn't get in is waitlisted.

"Applicants will be re-ranked after the results of the MMI are incorporated. Offers of Admission will be sent out in mid-May to top ranked candidates. All other candidates will be placed on a wait list."

Thats from the admissions website.

Has anyone who's been accepted received an email/mail giving you additional information? My original acceptance letter said they would send info regarding next steps "after June 1" and I'm starting to get antsy

While waiting for my acceptance for Respiratory therapy (🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻).. I’d like to know some insights or opinions.

I have an acceptance for nursing school, but my first choice was michere’s RT. However, I’ve been hearing horror stories (from new grads, old grads, students) about how job market for RT in Ontario looks like. It sounds like it’s been super saturated for past several years, and pretty hard to get a full time job at hospitals. Some end up in sales for medical machine as there’s no job opening for new grads. OR being sent to Halifax, Edmonton, BC

Now that I’m worried about getting job as RT, I’m kinda torn between just withdrawing myself from waitlist and just sticking to waiting for an acceptance and do it.

Any thoughts?

I would say just stick to it and see what the outcome is so you're not always wondering. You can always turn it down if you get in. Idk anything about RT but my family is full of nurses and I know that in nursing, there are job opportunities and there are plenty of routes you can take with it so its really a diverse profession. If the job market is slow for RT and you got into nursing, I would definitely advise you to do that.

Can't speak much about RTs, but as a nurse myself there are tons of jobs everywhere! Even lots of travel nursing opportunities, if you are interested in that. And also nursing jobs are so diverse; there's so many different specialties you can focus on. Tons of my recent nurse grad friends have full time positions within a year of becoming a nurse. So yes, lots of jobs available but being a nurse isn't easy, so make sure you really want to dedicate yourself to patient care :)
