    Hey guys! Just wanted to started a thread for those of us who are applying to programs in Missouri! I personally have applied to Cox, Missouri State University, Mizzou, Wash U and Maryville! I have only personally heard back from Mizzou to set up an interview.

        Hi! What are all your thoughts on considering Wash U for school? I'm still debating and I would like to know what ya'll like/dislike!
        I'm thinking about a lot. I love the resources they provide and the faculty seem incredible. My goal is to be the best possible or and most prepared and really make a difference in the field. I feel like WashU can do that. I really want to take a visit. I know they do virtual meetings as well. I like the diversity of the students and know their reputation which is great. Plus they have great fieldwork sites from what I have read.

          I got a letter of acceptance from WashU today! Super excited, definitely going to have some tough decisions to make. Has anyone visited the campus/met with the faculty? If so, did you feel like it was worthwhile? I'm hoping to maybe fly out right after my finals end with hopes that visiting might help with making a decision... the only thing really holding me back as of right now is the cost

            Did you apply OTD or MSOT? I applied OTD and still haven't heard anything

              So great to hear! What were your thoughts about the facilities/program?
              Also what did you/other people wear for it? Trying to pack now
              Everyone dressed informally for the most part, but still professional and cute. The facilities I really enjoyed it seemed like a lot of resources were available. The medical campus is really cool and so is main campus. And the students and faculty we met were impressive and reallying nice.

                I was accepted to Wash U today!! I was also offered a grad assistantship - was anyone else? It didn't really provide much information so I assume that we get placed with a specific faculty later on.

                Congrats! I was also offered a grad assistantship and haven’t been able to get much more info either but from what I gathered I think you’re right that we get placed with a faculty member when we get to campus.
