I recently graduated from UCD and right now I’m looking at the masters in OT. My top program is the one in SJSU (since it’s close to home and I’d be able to commute) and my second top program is the one in CSUDH. My gpa is a 3.27, my gpa in my las 90 quarter units is a 3.36 and I have a 3.44 in my prerequisites (still need to take art/ceramics and neuroanatomy). I want to apply to the program this cycle, but I’m afraid that my GPA is too low to get accepted. Do you think I could get accepted with my low gpa?
Today, I met with a woman who's primary issues are: strength, fear and fatigue. During our conversation, she identified that she had not showered since being home, the reason being fear. She is ambulatory, but somewhat unsteady and fatigues quite easily.
Obviously, it's impossible to convey and entire meeting in one hour, but what would you do with this patient?
I've read advice on here about transferring between states but not a lot on countriess. I really want to move to Canada, I have friends up there and think it would be best for my family. I'm I'm undergrad now but applying for gradschools next year. There's a college in Alberta I'm especially interested in but theres another program in Ontario. how does one go about going to gradschools in another country? How can I match required classes that might not be offered in Oregon? Any helpful advice, links or personal stories are very welcome. Please and thanks!
Hi, I'm starting at a school district next week and I'm not sure what to expect for my first few weeks. What questions should I bring to my department head that would benefit me before actually seeing my kids? Organization tips? I had a 3 month fieldwork 2 school placement halfway through the school hear so I'm still very unsure of how to begin a new school year. Thanks!
I am planning on applying in the fall for OT school (one more year of undergrad studying kinesiology) and I am trying to get my letter of recommendations in order now. I am thinking of multiple people to ask, but I would like to know what current OTs and other people would recommend me getting.
I can get 2 from OTs that I volunteered/shadowed for, and possibly a 3rd one that is a driving specialist.
I also had an internship at a hospital’s wellness center as an exercise physiologist, so I could ask my boss there to write me one.
I’ve also had two jobs, one where I was a care giver for a 16yr old girl with Cerebral Palsy, so I could ask her mother to write me one. And then I currently work as a provider in an assisted living home, so I could as my boss there to write me one.
I’m not sure if I should ask them all or what are the preferred options. I am heavy on experience rather than grades (3.5 gpa), so what would you all recommend for me to use as my letters of rec?
I have 3 withdrawals on my transcript from my undergrad. I was a biology & psychology major. These withdrawals occurred during freshman and sophomore year because I was at a phase where I had no idea what I was doing, plus I switched majors (I was chemistry at first).
Will these withdrawals on my transcript affect my chances of getting in? Also, do I enter these W's into my OTCAS?
My undergrad GPA was a 3.280 and I am aiming for a 4.0 in pre-requisites. I also have over 100 shadowing hours, over 100 volunteering hours, and I work as a registered behavior technician.
