    When did you apply? Did you interview in person? I sent my OTCAS there, but haven't finished applying! I have relatives in South Florida.

    I finished all my apps/ OTCAS at the end of October around the 20th and they sent me an e-mail asking me to interview about a week and a half later. I had a phone interview on Nov. 10th and received an e-mail stating I was accepted on November 14th

    Thanks for this information! I will likely finish applying, but even if accepted may turn down. What were your stats if you don't mind me asking?

    I received an e-mail from NOVA awhile ago saying that all of my application materials were received by 11/14. I have not heard anything back from them regarding an interview or even a letter declining my acceptance. Anyone else in the same boat?

    Yes I'm in the exact same boat! I completed my application at the end of November, got a confirmation and haven't heard anything since. This makes me nervous considering how quickly other people heard back, interviewed and were accepted. Good to know someone else is in the same boat :/

    Just had my phone interview with Nova. I think it went really well!!! I'm praying that I get accepted!!! Feels good to have the interview out of the way. By the way I got verified with NOVA on OTCAS Nov. 24th, got an email from the school on Dec. 1st to complete the supplemental appl., Dec.5th my application to the school was completed, Dec 9th I got an email regarding interview invite, originally my interview date was Dec.15th but that didn't happen because of the error with the date that they scheduled me, so I waited and no one called :(, later reschedule to Jan 4th and it turns out there was a misunderstanding about the time zone because customer rep. didn't tell me which time zone, and I had to reschedule today and they put me on for today! So now I am done! just waiting to hear back that's all!! They should automatically accept me just for the inconvenience that I had to go through. I had to readjust work schedule twice for them but luckily today I'm off from work :).

    Is anyone applying for Nova's entry-level OTD? It seems like you are only on campus a few days a month. Commuting sounds desirable since I could keep my job/boyfriend/house, but I question how well one can learn such a hands-on profession online.

    Don't recommend it. Tuition is high, city cost of living is high, its a first year program, and program was only given temporary accreditation for 3 yrs. If you plan to stay at home and fly to FL once a month, rent a hotel room and rental car I wish you the best... That's a lot of additional stress a doctoral student does not need.

    Yay!!! I found out today I got accepted to NOVA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :soexcited: So excited!!! for those applying, my GPA is 3.10 and GRE score is a little under 900. I did really well on my phone interview and they liked me for that! In my opinion, I don't think it matters if you interview in person or on the phone at Nova, they treat us all the same!

    Make sure you know the basics...why you want to become an OT, why you chose NSU, your strengths/weaknesses.. They are nice and easy to talk to. Just know your stuff. Hope that helps.

    Congrats on being accepted!!! I am thinking of staying at the Rolling Hills Graduate apartment. Single room is too expensive, probably in a quad with 3 other roommates for me. How about everyone else? By the way, I just found out the school received around 200-250 applications this year and will only offer 45 seats.

    Congrats on everyone else who got in. Anyone else get accepted ? When does everyone plan to move down to the Davie/ Ft. Lauderdale area. I plan to move somewhere between miami and davie because I have a friend who is attending FIU's DPT program. Is anyone familiar with the area and have any suggestions that are 20 min from each school ?

    I will be moving there May 27th. I found out orientation day/first day of school will be May 29th. I plan on staying at Rolling Hills. I heard the traffic there is horrible and it's hard to find parking spaces? It's better to live on campus or near by.

    Yay! I was accepted to the program early last week, and I'm going to accept the offer :D

    I'm still debating on staying at Rolling Hills or finding an apartment nearby, but I think I'll be moving there sometime between the 20th and the 25th.

    Hey group!
    Ill be applying to NOVA next year(Cycle 2012-2013). The otcas application officially reopens applications july 6th but the nova website said they would start looking at applications right before their new cohort start. I am a little confused? also the website said a 2.75 science gpa is perfered. I dont have that science gpa do you think I still have chance? overall my stats are
    OTCAS gpa-3.22
    Cumla. gpa-3.34
    OT experience-200+hours
    havent taken my gres yet

    you should still apply even if you don't meet the science gpa. just highlight why you are unique compared to everyone else that is applying within your personal statement.
