  1. Hi everyone. I am still deciding but am looking for clarification on when Western's OT offer needs a response. The letter states 5 business days (which would mean by end of business day Thursday - tomorrow they want an answer) but the ORPAS website says the offer is good until May 29th. I am wondering if any of you guys know when we need to respond by? I contacted the admissions at UWO a few days ago through email but no response, and they are not taking calls now. Thanks!
  2. Honestly, I think I must have done pretty well on the CASPER. I have a 3.79 sub-gpa (HBSc in Cognitive Sciences and minor in Neuroscience). No direct OT experience. I have volunteered plenty in research settings related to clinical psychology, psychiatry and completed a project in applied cognitive neuroscience. I have experience with children through coaching soccer, teaching dance, and coordinating a helmet safety awareness program. I also coordinated a program for continued education for adults with a range of developmental disabilities. Now I am working as a developmental support worker.

  4. This sounds like a difficult decision but both options sound great! To me it sounds like the main difference might be patient/client interactions, and so making the choice would depend on what your long term goals in relation to that would be, but I guess even that depends on the type of research that you're doing. There is potential for you to re-apply and start the program later if you decide in a couple years that you would still like to do it. Wish I could be more helpful! Good luck deciding!
