    Hi there!

    Does anyone happen to know if Shenandoah is holding interviews this year?

    I’m a re-applicant, and I flew out there for an interview last year but was waitlisted and never made it off the list.

    But by the way they worded their email this year, it didn’t seem like they were holding interviews this year. “Your application packet has been forwarded to the Admissions Committee for consideration. Decisions will be made in December”.

    Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

    I believe they do an interview every other year. However, I could be wrong, so, since you are going to be traveling to campus (assumingly from a far distance), then you could always call the OT department and ask.

    I hope that helps.

    I’m a current OT student at Shenandoah about to be done with my first semester - As far as the interview they want you to truly showcase who you are, so assess yourself and think of all the experiences that have made you who you are! Be able to express why you chose OT. Ask yourself what your strengths are and so on. I truly didn’t prep for it much, I was myself and I believe that’s what they wanted to see. The professors are the ones doing the interviews, and they truly are the most amazing professors I’ve met. They are down to earth and hilarious! Be yourself and I assure you, you will be fine!

    In the same boat as PsychGirl. The "interview" is more like a conversation, so they make it easy for you to just be yourself.

    Has Linda gotten back to any of you regarding the dates yet? I haven’t heard back and I’d be coming from out of state so I’m antsy to get my travel plans in order! Haha

    I emailed Linda and heard back this morning for an interview for January 15. I'm assuming everyone's interviews will be around then
