Hi, I also applied to Barry and was wondering how long it took to hear from them after you submitted your application?
Thank you!

Hi! I submitted my application in early December and it got verified quickly after that. Its never a bad idea to call them and just check on the statues of your app. I checked in with one of the other schools I applied to and it turned out that they actually needed a syllabus from one of my courses and once I sent them that I got offered an interview. I think it shows them how interested in their program you are as well!

You're welcome! It went very well! It was pretty relaxed but there was a writing portion at the beginning. It wasn't anything crazy, they just wanted one to two paragraphs on a very simple question that was subjective and easy to write. I actually got my acceptance email a few hours ago!

I did too! Congrats! Another word of advice- make sure to prepare questions for them. During my interview I was only asked two questions and the rest of the time was spent asking questions myself!

I’m not sure yet- luckily they’re giving us quite a while to figure it out. I’m just waiting on two more schools to make a final decision. Are you accepting it?

Absolutely! Most of my interview was me asking questions and getting to know the program better other than what I already knew based on what they provided on their website. Also, by me asking questions it opened up the conversation to talk about other things which relaxed the mood a bit.

Sure! They asked me about myself, why OT, and why I would be a good fit for their program. I believe those were the main questions and we may have branched off of those into others.
