  1. Will be firmly accepting McMaster for OT so the waitlists for UofT, Western and UofA will be moving! Stoked to be starting in fall!! If any of you are also choosing McMaster, please give me a shout! I'd love to connect with some future classmates!
  2. Ahh, just one more day!! Hang in there, guys!! As offers are released around midnight, does anyone know if this is according to EST? I'm from Alberta so I'm wondering if I should start checking at around 10pm MST!

  5. Applied + (PT or OT?): UofA, Western, Queen's, UofT and McMaster all for OTAccepted:Waitlisted: Rejected:GPA:c-gpa 3.42 and s-gpa 3.79Perceived strength of essays/interviews/references: First time applying here! For my essay, I highlighted my experiences of working as an OTA since 2018, primarily in the mental health unit of a long-term care facility and have just recently started working on other units for supported living and dementia. As the unit was being commissioned for the first year, I worked directly under two OTs. I've had 3 years worth of practicum at various locations for individuals with physical and mental disabilities and also volunteered to help individuals with physical disabilities to exercise at my local gym. At my practicum placements, I was able to shadow a few OTs and conducted a research project under the supervision of one. I've also been working as a behavioural interventionist for an individual with autism to help them with their ADLs and to aid in their development of social skills. My work experience reference is one of the OTs that I've been working alongside for the past year. Super excited for this cycle! Best of luck to everybody!!!
