  1. I LOVE that you said this because I saw the international opportunities on Westerns website as well and am for sure into this! That would be amazing and such a cool experience, I haven't seen anything like that at McMaster so far but I could be entirely wrong! Where were you accepted :))
  2. Hello! what were your stats like, if you don't mind me asking? I wish u of t would tell us where we were on the waitlist because it is my top choice as well! But, I think I will accept either McMaster or western in the meantime! Goodluck on getting of the waitlist for u of t!!!
  3. ALSO WONDERING if anyone has any insight into this! Where did you get in and which school are you thinking about accepting while you wait ?
  4. Hey! my s-gpa was 3.94 and c-gpa 3.81, I felt Casper went okay!!! I have work experience with a physician and at a physiotherapy clinic and volunteer experience at several rehab facilities, one of which was an OT setting. I also did research with a prof in my undergrad but unrelated to OT, I hope this helps!!
  5. Wow thankyou for this! really helpful:) Yeah I guess i’m sort of on the fence because I know mcmasters learning style is a little different and I am not sure how I would do with this!! I also remember the campus being really big at western going into my undergrad which was a little overwhelming but now that i’ve been to uni i’m sure I would figure it out!! I actually did my undergrad at Queens so if you have any questions about the school I can definitely answer them!! I didn’t get into Queens OT but, I likely would not have returned anyways because it was time for a change!
  6. Hello!! I got into Western and Mcmaster so I am deciding between the two and subconsciously leaning towards western right now. I think I agree with everything you're saying, I definitely think the smaller class size would be beneficial in terms of learning but I am not sure. I have heard that though U of T has good placements that they are really challenging and since they have high end hospitals they don't give the students as many hands on/more advanced opportunities. I could be wrong in saying that just what I have heard. Which are you leaning towards as of now? Congrats on the acceptances
  7. Hello! Wow this sounds like an amazing job opportunity! But also congrats on being accepted. If this were me, I believe personally I would attend school, I have always enjoyed school. I think that if you think long term, lets say you end up leaving this job, then you will have no masters and it may be harder to find future employment. I could be totally wrong in saying this but at least with choosing the schooling option you will have that extra education and hopefully always be able to find a job. Is there an opportunity to sort of stay in a good position with the job? Like maybe
  8. Thanks for this! congrats:) Will you be accepting U of T or did you get accepted to other programs as well!
  9. Hey! Congrats on making the waitlist I really hope that you get in!!! Did you apply to other schools as well?
  10. For those of you deciding between Ontario schools!! Looking to discuss with anyone the pros and cons of all the schools
  11. Hello Everyone, I wanted to create this forum to discuss the pros and cons of OT schools in Ontario. Hopefully this forum can help us make decisions and meet new people haha!
  12. Congrats to everyone who has been accepted, and to those who haven't don't give up hope! Applied: UofT, western, queens, dal, McMaster (all OT) Accepted: Western, McMaster Waitlisted: UofT, Dal Rejected: Queen’s sGPA: 3.94, cGPA: 3.81 Looking to speak to anyone in the same boat as me trying to decide which school to pick. If anyone wants to chat send me a message! Also, does anyone know about waitlists for U of T, do they move a lot or little?
  13. Anyone who got into U of T OT, first of all congrats!!! Second, can any of you speak on GPA, essays, experience, etc?
  14. Thank you! Yes I got an email from them, on the online application it still says written notification to follow.
