I am was offered a spot at both UofT and McMaster. My heart is set on UofT but the only thing I have some worry about is the placements. I will be moving to Toronto (I currently live closer to Hamilton) and will not be bringing my car. I do have access to it if needed. I know there are many opportunities to be placed within the city (which i am sure everyone prefers) and that public transit is available most of the time. My only worry is that on the site, UofT mentions the catchment area is "Durham Region (Ajax, Whitby, Pickering), and York Region (Aurora, Central York Region, Maple, Markham, Newmarket, Richmond Hill, South West York Region, South East York Region, Stouffville, Thornhill, Vaughan)" (in addition to downtown and Mississauga areas). Does the school work with you to try to accommodate our preferences? I am aware that nothing is guaranteed, just curious as to how brutal placements can get? Has anyone had to relocate entirely?
Are there any current students or others who have any thoughts or input on placements while at UofT (downtown campus)? I am likely creating unnecessary stress for myself but would still like to hear others opinions.
