  1. As the catchment area is large it could potentially be a far commute if u drive and sometimes not possible to commute via public transit (placements can take place in areas such as Barrie, Brantford, Oakville, Orangeville, Guelph ect.). For this reason some students do need to rent a place temporarily in the area of their placement also some placements might require you to have a car therefore being prepared financially if this does happen is important. @PTorOT? You find out the location for your first placement around the first/second week of October. You do have a few days once the placement
  2. Current Mac Student OT. On placement we wear the attire our placement site requires and this can vary. However, for my hospital based placements scrubs were not worn and we dressed business casual (no jeans or leggings, wore pants with some degree of stretch that allowed for transferring patients, bending and crouching comfortably and a shirt that was semi-professional but still allowed for movement). Message if you have any questions.
  3. Hey! I was wondering if anyone attending McMaster is looking for a roommate. I'm ideally looking for someone or a small group of people who want to live walking distance to campus with a lease starting the beginning of September. Message me if interest in looking for a place together :).
  4. Hey, I'm definitely interested to hear more details! Sent you a message
  5. If you need someone to talk to feel free to message me. I was rejected last year so I know how it feels. If you feel this is your calling apply again next year. Use the rejection as motivation and don't let not getting in this year define you. You are an amazing human and don't think you are any less worthy because of this little road block. All people in my opinion with greatest success stories are those who were rejected, told they weren't good enough or failed at something but they viewed it as just another obstacle to over come. I'm sending you positive vibes and encouragement that you wil
  6. I've been accepted to Mac, UofT (Mississauga Campus) and Western for OT. I am still waiting to hear back from Queens but I am expecting a rejection due to a low cumulative GPA. I will most likely be accepting Mac's offer (hopefully this helps those on the UofT and Western waitlists). For reference, I am OOP, SubGPA 3.88. All offers were on ORPAS at midnight and emails followed about 30 minutes later.
  7. While this is a very exciting day for many this can be a devastating day for others. For that reason, I am leaving the number for Crisis Services Canada - 1-833.456.4566. Wishing everyone the best when receiving today's news. ♥
  8. Last year when I was rejected they sent me a rejection email so there's still hope if you are yet to get an email!
  9. Hi Everyone, I am currently deciding if I should even try applying to OT this year. My current subGPA is 3.82 and cGPA is 3.44. I am unsure if this is even competitive after seeing the GPA's of other applicants. Due to my poor cGPA, I am only applying to schools which look at SubGPA. I don't have any experience directly working with an OT, but I am currently working in the addiction and rehabilitation sector. I have experience being involved on my school campus, volunteering in the community but once again it isn't directly related to OT. I'm just currently doubting myself that I eve
