I just applied for the MGH program starting in May 2013. Is anyone else applying here and/or anywhere else around the Boston area starting next summer?... Read More
- 0Feb 7, '13 by Kmp530Hi psulli2010! I have sent in my deposit to MGH and would love to hear about your experience with the program. How is the schedule and the mix of classes each semester? Have you had positive clinical experiences and are the instructors and professors supportive and interested in your success? Did you have to move to boston and if you did how did you go about finding housing? I would be relocating from an hour and a half away and was also wondering if I would need my car. Any other feedback you have to offer about the program would be greatly appreciated as well!
- 0Feb 27, '13 by clairep2Hi psulli2010. I was wondering if you could tell me about the amount of online classes that this program has in the curriculum? What is your average week like in terms of how often you are on campus in class and how often the classes are just online? I was just admitted and am wondering about the curriculum. Thanks!
- 0Mar 7, '13 by abqbbqI have a million questions I can't seem to find answers to. I can't go to the open house, and they aren't responding to emails, so I'm hoping someone here can help out...
1. How necessary is having a car? I was hoping to just rely on public transit, but will that work out with clinicals?
2. When will we get our schedules?
3. When are financial aid packages coming out? I feel like I'm so far behind on loan apps!

I can only really speak to your first question. I lived in Boston last year and never needed a car. I know someone in the program who told me that having a car is definitely not required (many students don't) and clinicals are accessible via public transportation (they try to work around your specific situation). I know that I will be looking for an apartment near public transportation because I don't plan on having a car. It's also pretty expensive to have a car in the Boston area so I feel like it's kind of nice if you can avoid it : )
I hope that you can have the rest of your questions answered soon! Kind of bummed that the thing tomorrow was postponed!
