MCPHS Class of 2012

  1. Hey, I was accepted a few weeks ago to the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS) Worcester Class of 2012 Accelerated Bachelors of Nursing program. I wanted to start a thread to introduce myself, and to see if anyone else had started to apply or has been accepted to the program. I already sent in my deposit and I am really excited to start school, and meet everyone in the class.

    Oh wow! Congratulations.
    Just out of curiosity, when are the applications due for Worcester? I didn't know they were already making decisions...
    Also, if you don't mind sharing, what were your grades like?

    Hi! I am waiting on my admission decision. It should be here in a few days and I am so worried! I saw a post about an interview? Did you have one?

    Nice! No interview needed. My Pre req gpa was a 3.65 and overall GPA was a 3.1. Hope you get accepted. For the person who asked about when the applications are due, I think you have to get your application in by Oct 1st.

    congratulations to those accepted! I'm applying to this program also but I was wondering what is the difference btwn the worcester and manchester campuses? If accepted (keeping fingers crossed) i plan to live in that too far to commute from?

    I don't think there is much of a difference in the programs. You can go to the MCPHS website and look at the differences in the curriculum. Also, I think there are going to many people commuting from Boston including me.

    Congrats to all that got in. I just graduated in May from MCPHS worcester. Let me know if any of you have questions..I'd be happy to help answer anything.

    congrats linds1334! i have never been looking around websites and such for housing. any recommendations? ive been searching and searching but a lot seems shady around the campus area based on reviews and you mind me asking where you lived?

    I actually lived with my aunt who lives in worcester. BUt I know some people lived on Clark St in worcester. There is some apts there and it is a safe area and within miles to school. Other people went in on sharing an apt on Plantation st in Worcester. Hope that helps, I would not live in the apts close to school unless they are the ones MCPHS owns. Let me know if you have any more questions.
