Was told at an fiu open house that 30 hours was enough and now I'm a bit worried about my observational hours after seeing other applicants on here. Is it too late to add hours at this point?
Should i add my retail store manager or possibly from an old professor?
Research assistant in Industrial Organized Psychology Lab one year. Big Brothers big sisters mentor.
Applying: FIU, FGCU, Adventist, (St Augustine spring depending if I don't get accepted to any fall programs
I don't think it's too late to add hours! I know with FGCU at least, you need two separate settings of observation so I would make sure that you complete that as it is required. For me, obtaining hours was really difficult; I reached out to 56 OT locations and only got 2 yes replies, so I tried to do all I could at those. I would ask the OT you shadowed under if they know any other OTs in the area and try to even just do a few hours. Whatever you can add will help! Also though, some schools don't weigh observation hours. I currently go to UF and they explicitly only look at 30 hours, even if you have 2000 total. It varies per school so I wouldn't stress FIU too much if that's what they told you! Also take comfort though that your stats are AWESOME so that'll help you out a ton!
I did. But worried about GRE Score. It was on the low end
You never know! I've heard ADU likes to look at the holistic applicant so I wouldn't worry too much!
Thanks so much for the reasurence
Of course! This is a really stressful process, and we are all in this together! I try to not stress until there is something to stress about haha
Hey all! I just applied to ADU and now I guess we wait to hear for an interview in March. I was wondering, does anyone know how many people typically apply to ADU? I think they accept about 30 people, but I wasn't sure how many apply.
Has anyone heard back from ADU?
I haven't heard back yet, but I was told we would hear if we have an interview by the end of this week, tomorrow I think!
I just heard back with an offer to interview. I’m not sure if they’re having technical difficulties because it is the first I have heard from them and it started with “Congratulations again! I apologize for the technical difficulties.”
I’m declining my interview so I hope you hear back soon!
Who was the email from if you don't mind me asking? Some of their emails have been going to my junk folder!
The original was from Adventist, and when I replied to decline it went to Jackie Dones!
I also got the same email today as well!
When is your interview?
Glad I found this, I haven’t heard anything back yet...
I’m sure you’ll hear back soon! Interviews aren’t until the end of March. Also, for some reason they sent out a google document so I can view everyone who signed up for one (lol) and they only have about 20 people to interview thus far!
Thanks for the update, fingers crossed! Please update us if/when you see all the seats filled.
Can you update us if you see how many people have signed up? I got an email that I was on the waitlist for a second round of interviews. I’m assuming depending on how many decline, I may still have a shot at getting an interview
So far it looks like only 24/50 spots have been filled for interviews!
I've signed up to interview on March 30th! anyone else? Also people on the wait list for second rounds of interviews it looks like it's in your favor at the moment.
I'm hoping so! Do you mind updating us on how many people have signed up so far? I know its only Monday and they all have until Friday technically.. but i'm hoping! I was accepted into my "second choice" program, but still hoping to stay local at ADU
Staying local would be nice! There are 30 spots still available.
Thanks for the update. Keep us updated if you don't mind!
I just received my invite to interview
I wonder how soon after the interviews that they'll let us know about acceptances
Hopefully the decisions won't take long!
I hope not long! I don't think they will hesitate because most students are trying to decide between multiple programs and offers! We should all keep in touch about the interviewing process - if anyone has any tips to share! I scheduled my interview for the 30th.
Only 36 people signed up for interviews as of right now and they accept 32! Pretty great odds so far.
I was offered an interview today but will be declining.
Anyone have an update on the interview count?
Theres still about 20 spots open for interviews.
40 people have signed up. I was told they were looking to interview 55 applicants, not sure if this is true because they have already moved down the wait-list!
Only 41 people signed up! deadline is tomorrow at 1pm, so they may be sending a few more invites to those who haven't received them just yet. Good luck
If anyone on here that has an interview is willing to give questions they asked or tips to prepare, we'd all be thankful!!
I'm excited for the interview but it's too bad that it's only 15/20 minutes... i'm worried they won't get to know us well enough in that short period of time.
Does anyone have any interviewing tips specific to ADU or MOT? Sample questions to be prepared for or advice?
I just received my acceptance from ADU and will be attending in the Fall
I just got a call about my acceptance too!
I'm glad I came across this. I received my acceptance yesterday as well! Have any of you received the follow up email they mentioned they'd be sending?
I have not received it! Will you be attending in the fall? I was hoping to make a facebook group for all of us to stay connected until fall!
I was wondering if anyone knew a lot about the class schedule that students have? I know they have class 2x a week, so does that mean they have class for 8-10 hours a day for those days? And would that mean a lot of the exams/assignments fall on the same days?
Yes, this fall! A facebook page would be great! & I haven’t received it yet either, just making sure i wasn’t the only one
That was actually one of the questions i asked them in my interview, they said it’s 2 days a week typically from around 7am to 6pm. Then around tests and practicals some students usually are on campus additional days to study and use the lab rooms.
Oh, gotcha! Man, 11 hour school days haha. That is nice to have days off in between though. Hopefully they space out the tests and papers between the different weeks so they don't all end up being due on the same day/week each time!
@flexfit are you deciding to attend ADU?
I think so! I really like the fit of the program here and it's close to home for me Good luck in your endeavors at FGCU!
Thanks so much! You too! I know you'll do great things there
