Hey, everyone!

I applied to St. Augustine's OTD program for the May 2019 entry date (San Marcos). I was told that I'd hear back from them in about 6-8 weeks after applying. It's been a few days after the 8 week mark, and I wanted to know if anyone else has heard back yet.

Did you submit your application after the initial due date?

Yes, I initially applied for Fall 2019, but they said they are still taking applications for May, so I requested to have my application moved up

St. Augustine sometimes accepts applications past the deadline. I know the MOT Fall 2019 program at the San Marcos campus is still accepting applications. I recommend emailing the enrollment adviser at the campus you're interested in and ask if you can still apply. Good luck :)

Congrats on the interview date! What do you think about the way the curriculum is delivered? At the recent open house, I learned that lectures are online and labs are in-person. I'm not worried about time-management but I do wonder if receiving graduate-level material via my computer is the best learning environment for me. Thoughts?

Thank you! I don't think that I'll mind receiving the content via online instruction, however, I guess I won't really know until we get started (if I get in). Is USA your first choice? And if so, what program did you apply to?

I applied to MOT for Fall 2019 start in San Marcos but I haven't seen any threads on it yet so I posted here :) I toured the San Marcos location and, for the most part, I liked what I heard about the program. The only downsides that stood out to me were 1. Online lectures 2. High possibility of needing to relocate/travel during fieldwork. I don't know how I would pay rent on two apartments during fieldwork!

Those are valid concerns. I'm thinking about finding a place that just does month-to-month rent --- like a room for rent situation so that I won't have to break a lease if I need to relocate. Good luck to you with the admissions process!

Hey, congrats on your acceptance! I interviewed for USA MOT in FL for fall 2019 as well this past weekend. Can I ask when you interviewed and when they notified you of your acceptance?

the interview went by really fast for me! my questions were how I know when I am stressed and what do I do to help with stress, why OT, a scenario question about if I get a 40 on an exam, what do I do, and what I do for fun. there may have been one or two more questions but that is all i remember

Hi has anyone gotten into USA OTD for fall of 2019? I got accepted back in December but I'm having a hard time trying to decide if I want to pack up from Chicago to move there. Wondering if anyone's on the same boat?
