    from the title of the degree, i infer that in the USA, OT and PT is a doctor degree?

    what about Canada? the few schools that I've seen (Western, UT, McMaster,etc) only give a MSc degree. are they equal and both qualified practitioner in both countries?

    * Don't know how to post a question here, as i am fairly new to this site. I need opinions and responses as to whether i am deemed as a competitive applicant to an occupational therapy program( preferably at my university, Kean).

    Current undergrad GPA( accumulative):3.426 (aiming for at least 3.5)

    Current prerequisite GPA: 3.5

    Settings observed: Rehab center( 60hrs), hand therapy clinic( 24hrs), hospital setting( 4hrs), low vision clinic (4hrs), home care (6hrs), Psychiatric Rehab center (20hrs). Total: 118 hours of observation/volunteering, with 6 different settings. I also intend to observe at a school setting( pediatrics) over break, so a possible 7 settings.

    Extracurricular activities: Director of Public Relations of Asian Culture Club( 2009-2010), member of Association of Latin American Students(2009-2010), member of Student Organization Public Advertising Committee( 2010-2011), member of Filipinos Uniting Nation at Kean( 2011-present), and member/Public Relations committee member of Students of Occupational Therapy Association( 2010-present).

    Awards: Dean's list ( spring '10), Dean's list( fall '10), Dean's list (spring '11)

    *P.S.: I had already applied to the dual degree occupational therapy program last year, and managed to make it to the interviews. However, ultimately i was not admitted. The difference in my application this year is I added an additional 26 hours accumulated from another hand therapy clinic (4hrs), same home care setting( 2hrs), and a new setting: psychiatric rehabilitation center( 20hrs). These observations were a required assignment for my intro to occupational therapy class, which was an added prerequisite this year. My only fear is that there is a strong possibility that I may receive a B or B+ for my intro to occupational therapy class( my teacher is a hard grader). Thank you

    Not sure if anyone has responded to you yet, but YES you are very qualified! Have you taken the GRE yet? Do well on that and I'd say you are almost guaranteed to get in somewhere. Just to give you a reference point, I have a 3.5 GPA undergrad, 1250 GRE, 40 observation hours in 3 settings and a 3.5 prereq GPA. I got into my top choice (Ohio State ranked #21 in the country). I was waitlisted at Rush, which is not as highly ranked but I think schools typically tend to give preference to in-state applicants. You have way more observation hours than me in many more settings so I think you have a great chance! Good luck!

    Thank you hlt0407, i did not want to take the GRE's, so my choices were Kean, Seton Hall, and Ithica. So far my applications have been processed and forwarded to the respective OT departments. Hopefully i will hear from them soon.

    Would anyone be interested in expanding this list to include program length and per-credit cost? While I think location is probably the most important factor for most prospective students, length and cost are important considerations too.

    This would have to be a collaborative effort by anyone else that wanted to help, but I don't think it would take too long. Any thoughts?
