Interviews are by invitation only. Applicants invited for an interview will be expected to summarize the personal statement they submitted with the OTCAS application. The following may assist you as you plan your summary and discussion during the interview.

  • The summary of your personal statement should give an overview of your key life experiences and a reflection on their significance, leading to your decision to pursue occupational therapy.
  • You may bring up to three documents or items referenced in your personal statement that illustrate your strengths and goodness of fit with the occupational therapy profession. These three items will be retained by you at the end of the interview. You are not penalized if you choose not to bring documents or items to supplement your discussion.
  • Be prepared to verbally summarize and discuss your personal statement; do not read it to us at the interview.
