Interview season is upon us, causing thousands of potential occupational therapy (OT) students copious amounts of stress. From checking your email every 5 minutes in class or at work, to clearing your schedule when you finally nail the interview, there is a lot that goes into interview preparation and applying to OT school. Once you get the interview, you worry about what to wear, how to prepare for the weather (especially if you’re living in harsh winter climate), transportation and what to bring with you on interview day. Most importantly, how do you make an impression in the short amount of time that you are actually being interviewed?

Congratulations, my friend: you have finished applying to occupational therapy school!

You shadowed for many hours, studied for the GRE, and conquered the OTCAS beast. You are now on to the next step of the process and are faced with the decision of what OT program to choose. Now, before you go ahead and send in that deposit for the first school that accepts you, take a moment to consider your options. Choosing an OT program is a major personal, professional, and financial life decision.

For many reading this, the hard times of occupational therapy school are finally over. No more exams or practicals sounds great, but – here comes the dreaded question — what now? Which occupational therapy specialty should you choose? With so many practice areas in existence and AOTA adding still more, it can be a daunting task to figure out which area calls to you most. Maybe you’ve always known you wanted to work as a pediatric therapist but, after that, the details get a little fuzzy. Or maybe you’ve had a level II fieldwork at a hand therapy clinic where the patient population really appealed to you, but you don’t know if you can pass the complex certification test.
