Hi! I wanted feedback regarding my stats and application. I’m worried about my hours since I decided the OT route at the end of my 1st year and then COVID hit my 2nd year. I am graduating a year early so I won’t have that extra year to build my application. Honestly, my 2nd year is the only year that has substance. Be brutally honest!
