  1. I chose Queen's for personal reasons because I previously lived in Kingston and loved it, but I also realized Queen's seemed to be more mental health oriented in the curriculum and that aligned with my interests. When I applied it was going to be the first cohort of the split of OT students across U of T M and U of T with the video conferencing and this did not sound attractive to me at the time so I declined U of T. McGill stated you did not need French when applying however in the MMI sessions I was informed french could be required on placement and I am not bilingual. Yes, definitely enjoye
  2. If it's any help I am a recent grad from Queen's OT (2020) and was previously accepted to U of T, Queen's and McGill. It was a couple years ago but feel free to reach out if you have specific questions I may be able to answer.
  3. They do not have interviews at those schools. I am a current OT student @ Queens. I applied for my first time last year to OT and received an offer from Queens, U of T, and McGill. If anyone has any other questions I'd be happy to try to offer any insights into the process!
  4. I appreciate everyones input and opinions in response to this post and have felt supported and agree with many responses, I would like to point out that the OT is a professional based program as opposed to a research based program which of course would hold more focus on GPA, maybe more suited for those with such pride in a higher GPA. I would like to clarify that I worked throughout university in these fields in order to fund my education, all paid work, including this year off for the hope I would have enough to attend graduate studies. I worked two different jobs while completing my final y
  5. I would say I have a fair amount of experience, I have worked in related fields throughout university and this year since I have graduated (complete degree last June). I currently hold a psychology degree and college diploma in behavioural science. I have implemented behaviour plans under an OT and BcABA, coordinated employment for youth with intellectual disabilities, and worked in a women's homeless shelter and transitional housing program. I currently work at the shelter part time and for a psychologist full time doing psychological assessments and return to work programs in a patients home
  6. I applied for OT this year for the first time with a sGPA of 3.73 and cGPA of 3.56 and was offered admission at U of T and Queens. Waitlisted at Western and completed an interview at McGill (still awaiting a response). I would say its possible! I will probably be going to Queens as I have lived in Kingston previously and I find it is much cheaper to live than the GTA.
