Attn all current future OTs:
What was or will be your major in undergrad? Is there any major that looks good for grad schools?
I'm leaning towards bio or psy but I'm unsure which...

I'm a Psychology major! From what I have heard schools do not so much place emphasis on your major but just look that you have completed all or most of the programs prerequisites and the grades that you received in those courses.

Most of my OT classmates were Exercise Science majors. My major was Psychology. I honestly think it doesn't matter much though.

I agree with all the post above. OT school doesn't place a huge emphasis on your Undergrad degree. As long as you have the prereqs, you're fine. I would recommend you become involved in school though. Having an overall strong application (good GPA, involvement, etc.) will stand out the most.
