I would like to know others' opinions on the various colleges that offer OT programs, particularly in the Northeast. Eg: Gannon, UB, D'Youville, Quinnipiac, Scranton, Stony Brook. Also, I would like to know opinions on US News' rankings of OT schools, which is 100% based on reputation. ("All the health rankings are based solely on the results of peer assessment surveys sent to deans, other administrators, and/or faculty at accredited degree programs or schools in each discipline.") Gannon is so low on the US News list it isn't even ranked, yet they have pretty much the same certification pass rate as the others on my short list. Also, I am interested in hearing opinions on the importance of using cadavers to learn anatomy, vs an OT school (such as Gannon) which has a good pass rate, but no cadaver lab.
