Just got accepted to Rush in Chicago--they said they are looking for well-rounded candidates with lots of community involvement. It was a group interview, had to work in a team to solve a problem then answer a few questions (how did you fit into the group dynamic, one word to describe yourself, why should Rush accept you, why OT). Love their clinical-focused curriculum. YAY!
Got rejected from UIC in Chicago--they emailed me saying my GPA and GRE scores didn't make me competitive. Need at least 3.75 GPA and 60th percentile in all GRE areas to be competitive, 200+OT hours, lots of volunteer stuff needed. Meh. They are more of a research school anyways, which I'm not interested in.
Also rejected from University of North Carolina, they won't tell me why. Thought I had a good chance there. Bummer, but oh well--guess I'm moving to downtown Chicago!!
