    anyone know how recently the OAT must have been taken to get into one of these schools or any others? thank you - also if you are applying, attending or graduated from one of these three schools please see my question in the Nova vs. PCO thread - thanks again.

      Wrote my OAT Feb 2004. Good for ICO, PCO and SCCO.

      I think some schools don't care how long ago you wrote the OAT and others have to be within the last 2 years (i.e. entering class 2006 needs 2004 OAT score latest) unfortunately I'm not sure which school has which guidelines.. sorry! I THINK it might have been ICO that needed scores within the last 2 years, and SCCO and PCO didn't mention anything about it in their information packages. You should call them and ask!!

        i have read that OAT scores are only good for 2 years. i'm fairly certain about this for all schools. :)

        Im pretty sure it has to be writen in the last 4 years. Anything older than that they dont consider (dont quote me on that, i remember reading it somewhere)

          Not for SCO:

          Quoted from the SCO catalog section of their website: "[OAT] Scores five years old or older are not acceptable."
