Hi Everyone!!

I applied to Howard and besides getting an email stating our applications have been received, has anyone heard back from the DPT program being accepted or rejected?

Thanks!

I believe they don't interview. And I haven't heard from them yet either. I've been seeing that we will hear in May, unless others have heard already.....

I don't think Howard typically interviews. I was accepted and did not do one. They sent out letters to accepted students to reserve a space in the class. Apparently once you send in your enrollment intent you will get another package mid May.

I noticed you'll be attending howard for PT school in the fall. Congrats! I'll be attending howard for Occupational therapy in the fall and I'm probably sure we'll have a couple classes together. I was just wondering what you were doing about your living situation. I have no idea where to start!

Same here! Do OT & PT students take classes together at Howard? I know at some schools they take anatomy together. I'm concerned about my living situation too. Congrats to you all & look forward to meeting you!

Did anyone receive another package yet? I sent in my $300 and intent to enroll and got no follow up. They never answer or return messages when you call. I have a lot to do in preparation for school and I'm a little annoyed that they wait until last minute. I have to get funds, living arrangements etc

I wasn't sure if this question was directed toward me. Anyway I actually live out of state although I'm from the DMV. I kind of have to take care of housing last minute because I don't live nearby right now. I may end up commuting from a friend or family's residence for a few weeks. Howard has not left much time to plan.

That's what I was wondering about too. I emailed them and she called me and said that we should be receiving a letter about orientation sometime in July and she said classes begin the last week of August. I'm still having issues about living situation tho. I have no idea where to start. Where are you coming from?

Finally! Just got an email today about class orientation etc. I have to worry about my living situation once I get there.:eek: (slightly freaking out). I don't even live in Maryland or DC anymore. I am moving from the South at the beginning of July. I'm about 12-13 hours away and I was quite unhappy to have to rush and get things done. Class starts 8/22 and orientation 8/18. Well I guess I will see you when class starts. Best wishes on finding living arrangements. Once I get up there if I find any info on apartments etc I will post a message here.

thoroughly annoyed by the school already. All I need to know is how to apply for aid. I have been told to call every friggin' department with lackluster results. financial aid says apply on bison web. well first off when you havent even enrolled in school how are you supposed to have an account and ID number????? then I have to call someone for an ID number, then the stupid log in says invalid. I am so irritated how am I supposed to pay for school in 1 month?

If you have already filled out a fasfa for this award year. You can log on the website studentloans.gov and apply for a subsidized/unsubsidized loans to take care of tuition. Unless you are getting outside assistance. I suggest you take out a grad plus loan (also available on the site) to take care of food, misc. money, boarding, books etc. Hope this helped.

Yes, I plan too....I will tell you that my acceptance letter told me that I needed to respond by March 23rd due to there being a very large wait list. Do not get discouraged because you were not denied. My friend received a denial letter and if you did not receive that then you should definitely hear something after the 23rd. Hope this helps.

Hello everyone!

Wow I haven't been on sdn since I was applying to PTschool over a year ago!
Hopefully I can shed light on some of the questions you may have pertaining to the program. Feel free to post on here or inbox me, i'll try to get back as soon as I can. We are in the midst of finals and taking our comp exams so its hectic, but please I encourage you to not hesitate to reach out to me, especially if you are experiencing problems contacting staff members.
