  1. Self-directed learning is another part of the program for sure. There is the understanding that we are adult learners at this point and that we need to take ownership of our education. You are expected to be proactive about identifying your learning gaps and seeking out resources to support your learning. That being said, I have found the faculty to be incredibly supportive and they are always available to help. Also, this is where your peers become super helpful! I have found that students in the program are always open to sharing resources and information (not only within our class, but with
  2. Hi there! Congrats on your acceptances! I'm a current Year 2 OT student at McMaster and have really enjoyed my experiences at Mac! You're correct, we do follow a PBL style of learning, though this mostly applies to our Problem Based Tutorials that are an integral part of each of our five academic terms. You are placed in a group with 5-6 other students as well as a tutor, who is either a community clinician or a member of faculty. Together as a group (with the tutor available for assistance), you work through a variety of case problems that align with the material that is being covered i
  3. Hi! Courses taken through the Chang School do count. Although continuing education courses normally don't count, the Ryerson Chang courses are actually undergraduate level courses so they do count towards your ORPAS GPA. I was also confused when I took a few prior to applying on ORPAS, but rest assured, they do count! Hope that helps!
  4. Hey! What school are you going to be studying at? Programs vary in their structure..
  5. I took a few courses after I finished my undergraduate degree and I inputted them as ‘non-degree’. For me, it was at a different school than where I completed my undergrad degree, but as long as they are undergraduate level courses, they will count. Mine counted towards both my subGPA and cum GPA. I’m currently in OT. Hope that helps!
  6. Hi! I was in the same boat as you last year when I took courses through Chang, and they do count towards your sGPA! Hope that helps!
  7. Summer school courses do count, so it's up to you whether you want to do some in the summer and in the fall. Only courses completed by December 2018 will count towards 2019 admission, so it won't help you out to take courses that start in the new year.
  8. Hi OTPT2019! I will definitely take a look. Thanks for the link
  9. Hello! I accepted my offer to Mac OT and will looking for some female roommates for the fall! I know it's still early, but if you're interested, feel free to respond
  10. Hi futureOT2017! I was wondering what you think of the OT program at Mac now that you've been there for a year? I have been accepted to Western and Mac for OT and am having a hard time deciding where I want to go. I'm a little weary of PBL and was hoping you could provide a little bit of insight into that? You still have traditional lectures don't you?
