@pinkkathryn:  

I went to school for OT but have taken a leave of absence after one year to decie if it is the career for me. In Canada it’s a two year masters. I hated the program and between our wedding, buying a house and some health issues I decided a year off would help me decide. Now It’s time for me to decide if I’m going to go back and I am dreading the thought. I have several other degrees and can do what I want without my OT but if it is something you are passionate about I’d say go for it.

If you can get accepted into the program and are going to do one either way I would say go fro OT and not OTA. Where I live its an incredibly competitive program to get into and people don’t usually think about OTA as an alternative as they are very different. One is a masters program and one is a college program. One you are the boss and one you do the tasks the boss tells you to do. I’m not sure what you’re looking for but if you have any other questions feel free to ask 🙂
