  2. This is for an Occupational Therapy program where this will be the inaugural class. Do more students apply to programs such as this? How are my chances of getting off the waitlist for this type of program? And also, it starts May 21st! Should I still hold on to hope, or move on? I thought I had a really good chance during my interview in March.
  3. Hi everyone! I am currently a senior getting my bachelors in Communication Sciences and Disorders (Speech Pathology/Audiology). I am about to graduate this upcoming May but I have a small issue... My current GPA is a 2.83 and I been struggling in some of my speech classes and I realized that Speech Language Pathology is not for me anymore. However, since I am almost finish this leaves me in a little situation as I know the state I live in (New York) does not offer any SLP-A jobs whatsoever. I been stressing out on wondering what I am going to be able to do as a career after I graduate with my bachelors degree. So I been doing a lot of research and I came up with a plan but I would like other SLP students/graduates to give me some advice if this is a good route for me to do or if I should pursue something else. My plan is to graduate with my bachelors, then I was thinking about going back to school to get my Associates degree in Occupational Therapy Assistant or an Associates in Nursing to become a RN. After getting my associates in either OTA or RN I would get my masters online in a health related field that would help benefit either career I would choose such as an M.S. in Nutrition, an M.S. in Health Education or an M.S. in Public Health (or other health related master programs that are related to Nursing or OTA). So that is my plan... does anybody think this is a smart plan? Does anyone think going back to school for an Associates after receiving a Bachelors is silly? I know they have Master programs in Occupational Therapy but since I haven't done much of the prerequisites for the Master's I think that becoming an OTA will not only be faster but also financially easier on me since I have spent a lot of money on my speech bachelor's degree, plus an OTA's salary here in NY is really good and job prospects look well. I also know that there are Direct Entry MSNs for Nursing but again, I haven't done much of the prerequisites, it will cost if not more or as much as a bachelor's degree and my GPA is not very well for a direct entry masters program. So please let me know what you all think about this plan as I really been struggling to know what I am going to do as soon as I am done because I know for sure Speech Pathology is not for me anymore :-( Thanks!
  4. I have been refreshing my email and checking the results page nonstop with no info from the schools I have applied to yet. Also, check the site religiously for any OT threads to ease my anxiety, but they seem to be sparse. I figured others might be experiencing the same grief.. so I am starting a forum for those needing to vent their stress away like me! TORTURE..
  5. Hey guys, I applied to Midwestern's OT entry level doctorate program. I have heard NOTHING since December. Help! When will I know something? Anything?! Signed, A very nervous, hopeful graduate student.
  6. Hi guys, I had an interview toward the end of January. Anyone in the OT program remember when they found out if they got in or not? Thanks!
  7. Hello I am in need of some advice on what to do to get into an Occupational Therapy program. I am currently an undergraduate student and am graduating soon with a 2.75 GPA. I have taken all my pre req's for OT schools and finishing up some this coming semester. I don't have too many observation hours but am working on it. My question is, if I do not get into an OT program, which would it be better for me to do in order to have higher chances of getting in when I apply again: Option #1. Complete an OTA program, get an associated degree in OTA, and work in the OT field Option #2. Complete a masters program in one of the following (health sciences, public health, behavioral science). Aim so have a better GPA in my masters program and then re apply to OT schools. My only concern with option #1, is that and OTA program give you an associates degree, and I feel like that's taking one step back instead of taking one step forward,--like a masters program. However, I can also see that an OTA program does take you one step closer to the OT field. Would my GPA from the OTA program count and help me, in the decision of getting into an OT program?
  8. Hello! I heard that this forum was the perfect place to ask the kind community for help with statement of intent/purpose revisions? Could someone help me by taking looking at my statements and offer feedback or with writing revision. Any feedback at all would be greatly appreciated!
  9. Hello! I am a junior at a private Christian university with a major in Christian Missions and a minor in Biology. It was my original plan to go to medical school and become a missionary doctor, but as I immersed myself in the medical field, I realized that therapy was a much better fit for me. I am still very much called to the international mission field, and I would like to eventually work for/start a nonprofit that provides therapy to children in developing countries. Having said that, I am having trouble deciding what area of therapy to pursue. A little more about me... I am INFP personality type, I enjoy sign language, I enjoy writing, and I love working with children who are disabled.
  10. I recently received my B.A in psychology, and I would like to pursue a master’s program in Occupational Therapy. Ideally, I would like to begin my graduate studies in Fall of 2017. I read the list of prerequisite coursework in a few programs, and I am missing the following: Human Anatomy, Human Physiology, Human Development across the Life Span, and Medical Terminology. I plan to relocate to Minneapolis in a few months and I wonder if I can take these courses in time. Does anyone know about a suitable summer or online program for these courses? If possible, I would prefer to take them in the area of Minnesota. Thanks!
