SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hello, Im a freshman human bio major who wants to go into some sort health care. I was pre-pharm, but recently, I decided to look into occupational therapy as a possible choice (patient-centered, etc)--not 100% certain but am intrigued. Ive looked into pre-reqs for schools in my geographic region, the West/NW/SW (where I live/go to school now and where I hope to stay in the future) and plan to do some observation this summer to get s better feel for if this is what I really want to do. Some questions: *Would the best way to find someone to observe just to make cold calls to rehab clinics and explain that Im a prospective OT student (being very polite and all that, of course?) *What type of GPA/GRE does it take to get into MOT programs? The school websites have very little info on this. *What is starting salary like? How much in loans would be reasonable to take out for a MOT? *Would hospital OT work by hard to find? Ive always known most OTs to work in schools (not my cup of tea)? *Any experiences, advice, etc., would be helpful! Do you like or regret the field? Thanks for your time!
