    I've applied to the University of Toledo OTD program for Fall 2012, but I have been waitlisted :confused: I have a 3.73 gpa in undergrad as of right now. Has anyone else applied, and know anything in particular about the competitiveness of this program??

    I know University of Toledo has an unusual way in determining its applicates, factoring a set score using GPA, essay, and GRE (if needed). What was your overall score?

    I actually didn't take the GRE b/c it was waived due to my gpa being greater than 3.5, maybe I should have...I just wrote a letter of intent to send to the school, hopefully they will read it.

    Be careful... I'm not sure of the content that your highlight in your letter of intent (LOI) but a LOI is legal document and that can piss some people off. When campus legal is involved no one wins. I highly encourage for you to just contact dept chair and inquire about your application. Good Luck!!!! :)

    Well hopefully they give me some sort of notification. The wait is killing me! The last time I spoke with them, I was 2nd/3rd on the list...I do not know if this changes over time, and I really want to know my odds of getting a seat.

    I didn't know Tiffin had an OT program. Or is it in development?

    No they do not have an OT program at Tiffin...Forensic Psychology is my back-up plan. Although I love forensics, OT is when my heart is.

    That is awesome. Forensic psych would definitely be exciting! I hope you get into U of T for OT since its where your heart is. Good luck!

    I called today and found out I was waitlisted as well. They told me someone already declined acceptance so you're one spot closer already! Downside is she told me students have until April 1 to hold their spot, which is sooo far away. I feel like 1-2 more people are bound to decline and you'll get in!

    I have not... I would suggest contacting them and asking how much the acceptance deposit was and when it was due to gauge whether or not some may have accepted just to buy time and will drop out sometime before the program starts.

    I sent them an email like Wed or Thurs, but no response. The website says we will find out after the 15th, so I guess I'll wait a few more days. I don't want to 'bug' them.

    Good luck! Don't wait too long if you don't hear, though. I get not wanting to bug them, but when I called them back in January to find out more about their waitlist and where I stood they were very helpful and didn't seem annoyed at all. They can't get mad at you for being super interested in their program, ha, especially when you're at the top of the waitlist!
