    Just curious if anyone will be working during grad school? If so, does it relate to OT?
    My program only meets about 4 days a month, the rest is online. I am planning on working at least half time but ideally 3/4 time.The program is expensive! I am hoping to only take out loans for the tuition and make enough money to live on.

    Not that I have a job lined up or anything.Don't suppose anyone in the Philly/ New York area knows of a job for recent grad with a a bio/ natural science/ intermediate Spanish background? Yeah, didn't think so.

      Not sure how much experience/interest you have in kids but nannying in NYC is a gold mine! And if you speak spanish or french fluently you might have an advantage.

        I sure hope I can work during school. Probably nothing related to OT. It'd have to be something very flexible since OT school involves a lot of meetings/labs/fieldwork/group work. Ideally 20 hours a week. :)

          I agree that 15-20 hrs/week seems reasonable. I've been working as a waitress while finishing my prereqs and it's been perfect. I work only nights, mostly on weekends and the shifts are generally only 5 or 6 hours long. It's a nice, small place and we have lots of regular customers so I can make pretty good money working with respectful people. I will probably continue to work a couple days a week during my program so I don't have to take out loans for all my living expenses.

            I'll most likely continue my job working with an adolescent girl with autism. I will be working anywhere from 5-25 hours depending on the week. If it starts to disrupt my performance in school I will cut back or quit.
