    Hello. I received a interview date for that day.
    I live in chicago so I still need to figure out flight information and which hotel is near the school. Any suggestions?

    I am also interviewing at Brenau!

    I opted for a phone interview for U of Indianapolis (I'm from SC and couldn't fly up there in the middle of my exams) and I was still accepted there!

    I also have an interview scheduled for Feb. 9th so I might see you there! Any good interview tips? It seems to me like there is a chance of at least one question with an ethical situation.

    I applied for the January 2nd deadline
    GPA: 3.45
    OT Hours: 200+ over 4 different settings

    Has anyone else heard back from Brenau? I'm going to need to start looking for a roommate(s) and a place to live. Does anyone know good places in the Gainesville area?

    OTstudent12,
    Congrats on going to brenau. I was accepted as well but I will not be going there. A student I met at the interview recommened two apartment complexes. Lake Linear Club apartments, which I looked at in person. They were really nice but fairly pricey. Here's the link:
    http://www.lakelanierclub.com/
    The other apartments were called The Preserve at Tumbling Creek, but I didn't get any info on them. Hope it helps!

    Thanks,
    Congrats to you as well! I am also still not 100% sure that this is where I am going to go, I am still waiting to hear back from schools that had later deadlines. But I am still going to reserve my spot, and if I go here I am planning on going in the summer as I have one pre-req left to take that I plan to take at Brenau. I just wanted to get an early start on looking at places and finding people interested in looking for roommates! Thanks so much for the helpful info!!!

    Any of you that have already interviewed at Brenau, would you be willing to shed some light on the process? Did you do a writing sample? Was it a group interview? What kinds of questions did they ask? I would appreciate any advice! :)

    Hey, the prequisite for entry into the OT program at Brenau : Medical terminology is not offered at ANY college in georgia...or am i mistaken? Georgia residents- what college did you go to take this course?

    Congrats to all those that got accepted at Brenau! I am currently toying with the idea of buying a home in Gainesville (hopefully 3-5 bedroom) for myself and renting to any other OT students that are interested. My plan is to be moved in and settled by mid June because I am having to take Research Methods at Brenau this summer as it was not offered at the university I graduated from in Tennessee. If anyone is interested in this at all please private message me and we can exchange information. I look forward to meeting all of you, I know it will be a great 2 1/2 years together!

    HI everyone! I also was accepted to Brenau for OT this fall and I am looking for a roommate as well. I went to visit Gainesville last weekend and I looked in Lake Lanier Club and completely fell in love with one of their two bedroom apartments. If anyone is interested please let me know. Also I was told by some of the ladies in the admissions office that Lake Lanier Club is definitely a great place to live because its in a safe area and most of the students live there so its easy to meet to study! Yet again if anyone is interested please message me!

    Hi! Has anyone that was interviewed June 14th been waitlisted for the the fall? If so, do you know what this means for May or January? The way I understood it our applications roll over but it has been a little confusing...

    Ok since nobody at brenau is picking up the phone and they don't conduct transcript reviews prior to admission, Ill ask you guys! Does ANYBODY know if its ok to take a course even though its not listed as "transferable" on Brenau's Transfer equivalency table??? For Example: My school (Kennesaw State University) offers Psychology Research Methods but when I go to Brenau's Transfer equivalency table it's not on there as one of the course thats transferable to Brenau. Please help!

    Hi all, I'm new to this forum and I know this thread is old but I have some questions about the OT program. How is the financial aid office in terms of generosity? I know private schools are expensive and I am hoping there is some sort of merit scholarship for graduate students, like they so often have for undergraduates. I am hoping to be accepted to the Gainesville program for Fall '13 and I'm also looking for roomates at the lake lanier club apartments. To the poster who had a question about the research methods class, I asked the same question and I was told Psyc 2300 from Ga State and Soci 2000 from Gainesville State will transfer.

    For those of you who have been accepted -- how long did it take after your interview to hear back from Brenau? I interviewed in January and am anxiously awaiting a response!!

    I've also applied to Brenau's OT program for Fall 2013, and I was wondering if anyone has been accepted yet? Playing the waiting game is very frustrating.

    Hey everyone! I have an interview for the Gainesville weekday MSOT program this Friday and was wondering if anyone knew if it was a group or individual interview. Also, if anyone knows the number of students who get interviews. I'm trying to figure out my chances. Thanks, and best of luck to you all!
