    Hmm I haven't received anything yet...maybe they don't send them all at the same time? Now I am worried :/ always something to worry about!

    I know someone who hasn't gotten theirs yet, they talked to Don yesterday and he said it should go out today. Sounds like they were sending out some yesterday and some today, I doubt it has anything to do with their ranking of student. Probably just didn't want to overload servers... maybe it's even by last name. Mine is in the first half of the alphabet and my friend's is in the last half.


    @hotpebbles: Last couple days of July (but same for my friend who hasn't received his yet), and, email.

      So everyone knows, I just spoke with the Office of Admissions at Jefferson and they let me know they are having a slight issue with sending out their supplemental applications. Many individuals who should have already received it last week haven't yet (myself included) If you haven't gotten the supplemental application don't worry it is coming!

        i've recently got an e-mail w/ title "your application is incomplete", which shows that i'm missing supp. material. At this point, i'm just waiting for the school to send me the link w/ id & password.

        HOWEVER, my concern/question is did all of you send in the RESUME to OTCAS?
        In the middle of the e-mail it states "Letters of recommendation, transcripts and your Curriculum Vitae or Resume must be sent directly to OTCAS."

        Was there even a page for resume? I've already submitted mine, and i'm afraid TJ won't even look at mine and considerate it as "incomplete" OTCAS app....

          I think it's funny that it took them so long to send out the supplemental apps when they consist of, what, 3 questions? And a couple checkmarks? I was expecting some big essay or set of short answer questions or something. Very happy with what it turned out to be. More time to focus on other schools' essays...

            Yea I don't know why it took so long! OTCAS was verified Aug 12th! So definitely am glad I can focus on other applications now :)

            I was expecting a prerequisite checklist of sorts, or a form to fill out. But nothing was ever requested by Jefferson. Anyone wondering the same thing? A lot of other programs ask for a checklist or form to be filled out in this regard.

              Are you waiting for another program? I emailed them to see if they're hosting another accepted students day because it would be more convenient for me to travel to Philly from my college (which I go back to on Sunday--poor timing!). If they're not holding any other days, I think I will be attending tomorrow. How about you?

                I'll be there tomorrow! Driving from DC and leaving early in the morning. Maybe I will see you there!

                I actually have a deposit in at VCU as well. Normally I wouldn't put in two deposits but I am moving with my longtime boyfriend who is applying to law school next year. We are waiting for his scholarship info from a couple schools in VA before we make our final decision. :)

                  Bringing this thread back from the dead. I submitted my deposit to Jefferson about a week ago and am fairly confident I will be attending! Anyone else?
                  I put down a deposit at Jefferson as well and am 95% certain I'll be attending in the fall. There's one school I was wait listed at that I could be swayed away from Jefferson by in the event that I was taken off the wait list and they offered me a considerable scholarship, but that seems very unlikely at this point.

                  I live in Chicago so getting to the open house is cost prohibitive, but I wish I could go!

                    No kidding, VCU is pretty much the other school I am deciding between! And yes, I think I will be there. :) And @tguido I haven't heard anything yet about a facebook group.

                      I am currently making my decision to go to Jefferson; received a spot from the waitlist a week or so ago. I'm a California native and will, most likely, be making the big trek over to Pennsylvania..
                      Any insight on your reasons for choosing Jefferson?

                        Hey @CMstudent64 and @tguido. So I was searching FB and couldn't find a group for our class, but it looks like the DPT students at Jeff created their own unofficial group for their class with a student admin. I just tried to create our own group, but apparently I can't be the only person in the group and I can't invite you guys yet because I don't have your FB contact info. If one of you guys could PM me your FB contact info so that I can add you, then I can create the group and post a link to our page on this thread so that other people can join. Thanks!

                            Do you mind sharing your stats pls

                            Sure! I posted my stats below. While on the wait list, I did send frequent updates via email on my remaining prereqs, my job as a rehab aide that I began in January, and continued shadowing experiences. I also gave them another letter of rec from an OT I work with, which I think may have helped. Good luck! Its a great school and was totally worth the extra effort. :)

                                  If any of you have any questions for a current student let me know! I know the application process can be extremely daunting/stressful, but it's all worth it I promise! :) TJU is a great school/OT program in a great part of Philly, I'm almost done with my first semester and love it so far.

                                      Just follow up and contact admissions about it through email or phone, its not a big deal. I remember last year it took a long time to receive the MOT supplemental app. I know its stressful but the application process definitely requires a lot of patience. It'll all pay off! Best of luck!

                                        Yea, I found out I was waitlisted a few weeks ago. I read on another thread that others heard back as well. When did you interview?
                                        Interviewed 2/6, just two weeks ago. Did they email you regarding the decision?

                                        Also, is anybody applying to scholarships at this time? I got accepted to UPitt, and was planning on making a nonrefundable deposit and withdrawing later if I hear back from my other schools...but wondering if it's even worth it because UPitt is so expensive compared to others. :(
