The article did nothing to discuss why so many students chose to attend Ithaca. Yes, the acceptance rate was higher than past years to accommodate the economic trouble our country is experiencing, but it was the students choice to enroll here. Of the three highly competitive occupational therapy programs I applied too, and was accepted into, Ithaca was the only school who made a large effort to make me feel like they were a place of opportunity. The spring of my senior year I received a mailing from IC at least once a month telling me about all of the great experiences that IC held for me. The Occupational Therapy department sent me a personalized academic planner and a therapy ball along with information about the occupational therapy and physical therapy clinic, in which students actively participate in treatments. My other options for college only sent me a short write up about the program and never showed me that I would learn anything outside of the classroom. It was not over-acceptance that caused the over-enrollment here at Ithaca, it was how Ithaca portrayed itself. I have never regretted the decision to attend Ithaca College and I know that I will be getting an amazing education here.
