  1. I will warn you that Hamilton is not affordable. A typical 1 bdrm will cost about $1500 + utilities. Student housing might be a different story

  3. This is very good to know! I was initially a prospective applicant to a masters in social work. The program requirements are equally competitive as OT programs, but most applicants have a minimum of 3,000 hours! It's so crazy, and gives me a bit of anxiety when thinking about how to have a competitive application to an OT program. Congrats on your acceptance to U of A!
  4. From what I understand, it isn't necessarily where you have experience, but rather how that experience has influenced your choice to pursue a career as an OT. I will say that I have been stressed about this myself. I am thinking of leaving my current job as a support worker to pursue a contract job doing administrative work for low income populations. I could be very wrong since I have not applied to an OT program yet, but I believe working with different populations is a key factor to understanding different challenges.
  5. How many students actually get shadowing experience? I have paid experience coordinating cycling rides for a municipality, cycling recruiting and coaching youth, and work as a support worker for individuals with neurodevelopmental disabilities. With these experiences I am worried my application will not be competitive. I'm sure we are in the same boat with COVID complicating a lot of things.
  6. Hi everyone! I'll be applying to OT schools this fall in Ontario. I was a prospective MSW student, but have been more interested in OT! I am confused about interviews. I have seen posts that say schools will interview you as long as you meet their GPA minimum, which I believe is about 3.3. I have seen other posts that say schools take the top 200 GPAs and only interview those people. Which one is true?
