Seems like there is not a ton of interest in MUSC on this forum, but in case anyone is lurking and not posting;), here is the link to the fb group for our class!
https://www.facebook.com/groups/muscOT2016/

And I heard from Susan Johnson today that they are still filling the class - I THINK (from some deductive reasoning) they have about 15 spots left. Whether or not they have made admissions offers and are just waiting for people to accept, I don't know.

Hey guys! I'm filling out my supplemental packet for MUSC right now and I'm a bit confused as to what to do about the observation hours log form. In the box for "Description of Work Performed" do we just put something like "observed..." and then list one thing? All of the detailed info about my observation hours is on my resume, so I'm not sure what they expect for the form. And there's hardly any room to type anything!! Anybody know what we're supposed to do?
