Hi guys! I'm ready to submit my PTCAS app, but I had a question about observation hours. I will be doing some inpatient hours in the next month or so, but I wanted to submit my app now. Is it possible to add hours later?

I know that you can update your hours anytime in the cycle but is that for pre-existing entries only or can we add additional entries later? I do not know yet who will be the PT that I will be shadowing in the hospital, so I can't add an entry yet for my inpatient hours.

you can add additional hours after you have submitted....i did that
If one has already e submitted to designated schools, and we were to obtain hours a month later, can schools that we applied to still see the hours we finished?
