I just found this site today and after reading a bunch, I'm panicking!

stats.. graduating in May
GPA 4.0
GRE Q 155 V 152 W 4
under 100 hrs in 2 settings for observation hours but will get over 100 and add a 3rd setting in the spring
tons of activities and honors

I meet the minimum hours for all the programs I applied to, but will they axe me for being around the minimum??

I applied to VCU, Ohio State, Duke, and Shenandoah

I feel like most schools look for a variety of settings more so than hours. As long as you meet the minimums I feel like you should be fine! Especially with 3 settings, and your other stats!

Also an FYI...not all schools factor in your quantity of observation hours, as long as you meet the minimum. OSU used to be like this, but I'm not sure if they have changed this since I spoke with them a couple of years ago. Basically it wasn't a consideration in admissions as long as you did them.
