Hi everyone!! I am planning on applying for OT school for the 2016 cycle. I am wondering how qualified of an applicant I would be and what my chances of getting accepted into a good program would be. School: Ashland University Total Undergrad GPA: 3.56 Major: Music Education Minor: Religion Prereqs: Still need to take most. Currently taking medical terminology and have an A. Got an A in general psychology. I took developmental psychology back in my freshman year and got a C due to an awful professor. I definitely plan on taking lifespan human development to make up for this. I plan on doing a lot of observation hours in different OT settings this summer. I am also about to start a job which will end up being over 1000 hours of experience working with ID/DD population, teaching them independent living skills and community integration and socialization. Extracurriculars include: Flute, piccolo, the ability to teach beginning piano and all band instruments to children/adult beginners, performing in and working with several drum corps from drum corps international, performing in and teaching for winter guard international, color guard instructor and designer, Ohio Collegiate Music Educator's Association, being a performer and captain/section leader in several groups including marching bands, orchestra, pit orchestras, wind ensembles, etc., Alpha Phi Sorority, Kappa Delta Pi Education Honorary. I also have over 4 years of additional work experience in unrelated positions. I also serve part-time in the military as a member of the Army National Guard. The main places I am considering applying to are University of Toledo, University of Findlay's weekend program, Grand Valley State University, Chatham University, IUPUI, Ohio State, and Eastern Michigan University. What do you think my chances are of getting into any of these schools? Do you have any suggestions of things I can do to build up my application or do you have any suggestions of other schools I should also consider applying to? My preference is to go to a school either in or near Ohio. Thanks!!
