  1. This might not help too much but queens was my top choice for OT.. I didn’t get in though. The campus is amazing and everything about Kingston seems to be amazing. I don’t think a bigger campus is better and I know that London is quite expensive and not as nice as Kingston/ queens. I also was drawn to the profs and mentor program there .. I think their program is really awesome. My gpa wasn’t strong enough for queens but I think you should be proud that yours was! Seemingly that’s queens was abit harder to get accepted to than western. I think you should definitely go with your gut on the scho
  2. Seems like you may have more pros for mcmaster! I think I’ve mentioned it before but the OT at my clinic really enjoyed mcmaster and said that the PBL was a lot better than the regular learning style. Also I highly doubt international placements will be happening or they will be extremely limited and might not be as great with the pandemic (unfortunately). Rental costs may be the same but western may be abit more expensive.. my friend is paying 850 per month.. which is insane!! (She’s in a masters there) a family friend of ours just graduated from mcmaster and she enjoyed her time th
  3. I would assume since the groups are small that they would be still occurring but I’m not 100% or small groups online over zoom.. either way it is still more interactive in my opinion!
  4. If anyone is on the fence about Mcmaster OT or PT because of the SBL. I talked to the PT and OT at my work about it and they said they really enjoyed this approach. They said it was a lot better than sitting in a class and learning. More hands on, interactive and you gain more skills. I hope this helps anyone that is worried or scared about mcmasters approach! (They both graduated from this university).
  5. I think PBL is different and interesting, especially cause it’s different from other schools. My friend that went there didn’t have any issues with this learning approach and clearly helped in a beneficial way due to her current situation of getting a job right away. - and thanks so do I!!
  6. With the current situation in the world I don’t know how great the international opportunities will be unfortunately! I mentioned before but my friend just graduated from Mac and has an amazing program and she has a great full time job and thriving! Also my friend got into western for psych masters and has said housing prices are insane and had been difficult to find a place. I don’t know if any of this helps ! But goodluck
  7. Not too sure about western but a few pros of queens is that in my opinion it is a bit harder to get into since they take an accumulation of your grades- so congratulations on that! I also think the living / area of Kingston is amazing and has a lot to offer. A friend of mine just accepted to queens she did say they were similar but it was little things that made her ultimately decide on queens! I think she mentioned the program being a bit better there as well. Goodluck on your choice!!
  8. Got rejected from Mac, amazing you both got accepted! Congratulations, my friend Emily just graduated from Mac and is working at a hospital and has a solid job. She worked at another place before hand but was able to find a job right out of the program! Hope that helps with any decisions.
  9. SLP is great, a friend is in this program and is enjoying it very much. She said it is extremely rewarding- interesting and more! Plus an added bonus is at the end of it the job pays extremely well! Goodluck with your choice I wish I thought of this career sooner!
