  1. I'm sorry, but if we want to talk about "objectivity" let's be real here. Simply comparing GPA's is in no way "objective." People are coming from a variety of schools, with various degrees, which also vary in terms of their difficulty. Are you saying that comparing the grades of someone with an engineering degree is equivalent to that of the grades someone achieved with a program who's class average was 80%? I don't think so, and if you truly believe this, then you're likely not cut out to be an OT. As an OT student, I can see that it's incredibly important to be able to understand that a cook

  3. CONGRATS!! Excited to see you join the team next year! I'm currently finishing my first year of the program, feel free to reach out if you have any questions
  4. Yea not at all, I'm the same. Your best bet would be a basement apartment, which you could find for around 800-1000 all inclusive. Housing prices are lower around here, and there's a high demand for rent since Queen's doesn't have a lot of housing, so this drives up the rental prices.
  5. Hmm, one bedrooms aren't too popular, due to cost, but there are a few. You're looking at around 1100 all in. There's a lot of cool above restaurant studios as well. Shared spaces range from 500-800 per room depending on how many bedrooms are in the house
  6. Hi Everyone, I'm a 1st year OT student at Queens, and I will be looking for 3 people to join my house beginning in September. Its a two unit, and I live in the basement unit with another 1st year OT, but the upstairs I will be looking for 3 people. I figured I would create a platform where people searching for housing can also look for a roommate, as I think it would be great to have a house of OT/PT students. Once you get your acceptances there will be a facebook group created, and that also works as one excellent platform, so I highly recommend you join that as well. If you have any ho
  7. Hey Everyone, If anyone is still looking for a place, or has grouped up with a few people you'd like to room with, I have a main level available for a house at 426 Macdonnell. Details: (3 bedroom,1 Bathroom unit of a 5 bedroom house) located at 426 Macdonnell Street. Perfect for a mature group of 2 or 3, preferably students from the Occupational or Physiotherapy Masters program. -Property boasts 3 free parking spots, with the option to purchase additional parking. -Lot is a 30 second walk to Tim Hortons, a few blocks from Lowblaws, the beer store and LCBO, and just a 15
  8. Hey, So yesterday I completed a "firm accept" for my offer from Queens, but it didn't feel like it actually went through. When I clicked confirm changes I was given a confirmation number etc, but then when I logged in today the "firm accept" was still a hyperlink, so I'm worried it hasn't actually gone through. Is this normal? I was able to create my Queens account using the NetID they sent in their official acceptance email, but I am unable to access my Queens email still. I see some people have mentioned having to go through SAMS, but my account doesn't really have anything in this sec
  9. I've only heard from Queens with an actual acceptance on the 5th, then yesterday they sent me an "official" acceptance. Nothing from U of T.
  10. Hey everyone, Just an update for those waiting on Queens OT! I received an offer today around 10am!!! I am over the moon, and this has always felt like my first choice school. I will likely accept the offer soon. From the email it looks like we have until June 9th to firm up, in the meantime I will see if I hear word from U of T, but most likely a spot on the waitlist will open up for others! Excited to meet my future health professionals!
  11. Hey guys, so I received an official mailed letter from u of t about having a place on their waiting list. Basically read the same as the email. Quick question, there is a mention of arranging for our final transcripts to be sent to ORPAS by June 30th, just wondering if this applies to someone who didn't take any winter courses. My transcript should be the same come June 30th, so do I have to do anything? Thanks
  12. Hey, personally I've heard that schools frown upon taking too long to complete a degree, so I would graduate, then take extra courses in the summer or fall to upgrade. I went from a 3.45 to a 3.69 from graduating and taking 4 more courses, and killing them. Essentially when you graduate they now look at those winter credits (that weren't counted this year) and your soon to be fall ones, which can really make a difference. Use a spreadsheet (I think someone posted one a while back), to see how many courses you'd have to take to maximize your potential. Good luck
  13. Hey, I've been wondering the same. All I can say is I know that they don't waitlist everyone, since I was rejected last year, and waitlisted this year. Hopefully we hear more soon! The wait is killing me! Best of luck!
  14. Hey, From my experience (applying to OT) you could incorporate these details in your resume, and the essays you submit. I know from my essays I definelty touched on my experience, and in the resumes this was evident too.
  15. Alright, so I've officially heard from everyone (all through email). First, I would love to say CONGRATS to everyone who has come this far, who has been accepted and waitlisted, but also those who got the dreadful letter of rejection. I got one last year to the only school I applied to, and I know how disappointing it is. Just keep trying, we will all get there! Schools applied: Queens, U of T, McMaster, Western (All OT) Accepted: none Waitlisted: Queens and U of T Rejected: Western and McMaster Grades: sGPA - 3.69. CGPA - 3.44 While my grades were just alright in comparison
