Not OT, but here's my experience:  I took a year between high school and college to travel and volunteer, it remains one of the best decision I've ever made. I started post-secondary at a college

A bit off topic, but this forum post (the 2020 version) has over double the pages of the 2019 one. 

Hi Everyone! Last night I received MSc. OT acceptances from UofT, Queen's & McMaster. I've also been accepted to Western as well, but only for the combined OT/Ph.D program. After a lot of ref

Accepted to Dal OT (NS applicant), Mac PT

Waitlisted to Mac OT (#13), Queens PT, and both Western PT and OT

sGPA - 3.83 cGPA - 3.78 (from ORPAS)

Going to have to make some tough decisions between OT/PT... I’m leaning towards Mac OT granted I move off the waitlist... does anyone know how much movement Mac sees? I feel like #13 is pretty high up there... what do you guys think?

**UPDATE** I got off the waitlist for Queens PT and Mac OT. Ultimately decided to accept Mac OT which I am super excited about. 

Side note - I accepted Dal OT incase nothing from Ontario worked out and the deposit was only 200$ so not the end of the world. I will be emailing them telling them that I will not be in attendance this fall so that should open up some room on the waitlist!

I am #34 on the waitlist and anxiously waiting! Mac is also my first choice! Have you heard anything from them yet?

I haven't! Been checking my emails. Perhaps those notified so far from waitlist need to respond by certain date and after that date, they'll move down the list again.

Good luck, don't lose hope! :)

Can someone who has accepted Mac OT explain to me how I pay the 500$ deposit... I know it's on mosaic student portal... should I click the "make a payment" option or is there something for specific for the deposit? Also, my offer still says pending... will the deposit option only become available when the offer turns to conditional? Any help is very much appreciated either in response to this or shoot me a private msg. Thanks!!!

Anyone know if there's a facebook group for mac OT yet? I couldn't find one. Also, I'm looking for a female roommate so msg me if interested!

I emailed the program coordinator asking about this (and if I could make one), she said that the second year student council always puts one together and should be made as soon as provisional/waitlisted acceptances are solidified :)

I am also looking for roommate(s), but not entirely sure about my living situation for the fall. So tricky with all the unknowns!

Hi all,

I have a question. I wonder if it is ok to apply for OT and PT programs at the same time in the same school. Do you think it would be ok for the committee to know we apply for both? 

They don't mind I got into both OT/PT at UOttawa, they did not mind
