    Has anyone applied or been accepted to Hofstra new Occupational Therapy Program? (Could you also post stats?)


    If so, why?.......If I'm not mistaken, the program won't know if it's accredited prior to graduation of the inaugural class.

    Thanks :)

    I'm considering applying for next year, but only this year (2015) is up. To be honest, my school app decisions right now are 1. Does it require the GRE? (then I'm not applying, I'm not spending 200 on the test) 2. Is it in the northeast or west? 3. Is it 2.5 years or less, (with 2 years preferred?) 4. Do I have a decent shot of getting in? If it got to this step, it's unlikely it won't be accredited. So no, I'm not worried.

    I am applying to Hofstra for fall 2016 because if this is the only school I get into, I might seriously consider going.

    I have a question about Hofstra! I emailed them for " extra information" and in the email it says they will know if they receive accreditation status before the first class graduates. However, what happens if you spend time (not to mention $$) in an OT program that might not receive accreditation? Are you able to sit for the board exam? Is all of that time/money completely put to waste? I am interested in hofstra, but confused on how they intend to draw in students when they can't guarantee accreditation until that class is already set in the program.

    i havent, but if you go to their website they have their webinar videos up. In those it says when we should hear things- she said in december is the earliest for interview invites, they are also only taking 20 students!

    Thanks! It was individual, It was relaxed and I felt really comfortable talking with Dr. Countee, she asked me basic questions that you can find if you just google "OT grad school interview questions" and then I was able to ask questions at the end!

    Is Dr. Countee the only person in the OT Department that anyone has had contact with? I'm trying to just make sure my file is complete which doesn't seem like an appropriate question to bother her with but I can't find a general OT admission department number to call. Has anyone contacted the OT department? How did you determine your application was complete or being reviewed? Thanks!

    I emailed them afterwards making sure my supplemental application fee was recieved and that gave me an indicator that they had everything. When did you apply? Its rolling so theyre still looking at tons of apps!

    Thanks @calling4color that's a great suggestion. I wanted to make personal contact but email is probably more convenient. I applied mid January so I'm sure I will have to wait a bit before I hear back.

    it will be accredited - the school obviously has the resources to be able to do so- and they are accredited in 19 programs which only 100 colleges are in the country for that amount- she basically said its not something to worry about at all

    I applied in november and interviewed in january and thats because they were interested in me -becsuse i seemed interested in them. i kept emailing them to make sure they got everything and to put my name out there. I think you should do the same, email them with questions and state your interest

    I applied in January and called the other day asking about the status of my application and they said to wait another 10 days. (Other than that I had not heard anything)

    Hi everyone!
    I accepted the offer a couple of weeks ago and was wondering who else will be starting this fall 2016
    I'm from Cleveland, Ohio so if anyone else is looking for roommates, I'm very clean and laid back :)
    Also who else is taking the pre-ot course during summer session 2?

    Contacted hofstra today and they said to wait another 1-2 weeks to review my application. If I don't have an interview, does that mean I don't get in?
