Hello!

This is my first time joining any kind of forum so I'm unsure as to how everything works... but I interviewed with Brenau University back in June for their MSOT weekend program in Norcross (start: Jan 2017) and was told I should be hearing back in August on whether or not I was accepted. I was wondering if anyone else interviewed and has heard anything?? The waiting game is driving me crazy!!! I also was wondering what my chances of being accepted are... here are my stats:

Cumulative GPA: 3.52
Prereq GPA: 4.0
30-40 observation hours (give or take) in pediatric outpatient, older adult inpatient, and hippotherapy
Job: Interactive Metronome Therapist at a private practice which includes OT, PT, Speech, Psychotherapy, Neurofeedback Therapy, and Psychological testing. I work closely with OTs since we share multiple patients. I have my own caseload of both kids and adults.

I think my interview went well but who knows at this point lol.

Any advice from anyone??

I'm not 100% sure since I'm still waiting on a couple schools. They want to know by the end of next week! Is it your first choice?

I'm not sure yet I'm waiting on another school to let me know if I've been accepted. I should know by next week.

I just got into my first choice school and sent an email to Nancy to decline my seat. Hopefully you all will hear good news soon. Good luck!

Haven't heard anything yet, but they told us any time until April , so once again it's a waiting game.

That's awesome, congrats!! I put down a deposit last month. Do you plan on attending?
Most likely I will be attending, still waiting to hear from a couple of other schools but since Brenau is a top choice for me, I don't want to miss out on this opportunity.

Can any current students give me some more insight on the Brenau-Norcross program. Im trying to decide between two schools and I want to know how people are liking the program and if they feel they are getting a proper education and support from faculty. How are your fieldwork placements?

Thanks!
