This might be a bit premature, but I was just wondering if there was anyone out there who had already applied to MCPHS Worcester for the Fall of 2013. I have applied, and I am nervously awaiting my recommendations to be sent in, so a decision can be made.
This might pertain to people in previous MCP classes as well, but I was wondering how long after all of my application materials are received, will it take for a decision to be made. I guess I'm just a little nervous and I am a little impatient, but I'm praying I get in.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from all of you!

Thank you for all of this information Bcdawber!! I really appreciate it. I actually live in the Boston area so I've been taking all of my courses at MassBay CC. I took Chem 2 a few years ago and hated it, but I'm hoping that I can get the same professor who taught Chem 1 there (he was great!)... The only other question I have left is: does is make a difference to get recommendations from two professors or a professor and an employer? My employer options are pretty slim (since my former employers aren't very reliable and would probably forget that I'd even asked them to write it...)

I had an overall GPA of about 3.10 when I applied, which I wouldn't say is awesome. I had actually failed a class in my sophomore year, which prompted me to have an even higher pre-req GPA of about 3.90. I would say that GPA does play a factor in admissions decisions, but if you have a strong personal statement and strong recommendations it will definitely be in your favor.
