Yes, I don't think they have specific requirement regarding observation hours.
However, I've volunteered in 2 types of rehab centers for more than 150 hours and then put them on my resume. Hopefully it helps.

Good call, I'll put my observation hours on my resume as well.

I applied to USC for early admissions. When I went to the information session, they said that they would let us know within four weeks of when you turn in your application. That would be next week for me! So hopefully I hear some good news. :xf: Did you apply for early admissions?

Do you know what your doing about your living situation yet, OTob?

Hi floridagator07 :)
I live pretty close to campus (~25 min with traffic) so I'm pretty sure I'll stay at home since it's so expensive already... I hear living at the OT house is pretty convenient though. If you want to talk more PM me. I don't know anyone in the program yet!

Has anyone heard from USC outside of early admissions?
I did yesterday. I did not get in but the letter was very nice. I'm not too disappointed, from what I know they received a considerable amount of applications just like everywhere else.

I still got nothing yet~~~:(
I think it may be a good thing if you haven't heard. I assume they send out the denials, and continue with reviews of the final applications that meet what they are looking for. They throw some out some more, waiting list some and finally send out acceptances.
Sarah had told me they were running a bit behind back in Feb. Good luck!!!
:)

Sarah told me that I would be hearing from them either later this week or very early next week. I hope it is not a bad news~~:confused:

I'll keep waiting then :) My application was late because of a snafu with the otcas system... not my favorite way to apply! I was accepted to University of St Augustine in San Marcos so I am pretty excited about that.
Good luck everyone!

I'm wait listed too! thank you sweet baby jesus. But I wonder how many people are on the wait list. For the people accepted, when do you have to turn in your deposit or commit to your acceptance?
