    @ shamrock Hey! I just got in, so excited! I'm from San Francisco Bay Area, what part of California are you from? They recomend that you get a car because we have to go to clinicals all over the place and public transportation doesn't always run. I may lease a car for the 17 months rather than drive all the way there. What are you doing about housing?

    Gogators1919: depending on where you want to live, there is a lot of (student-type) apartments available - from 800-1200. If you're sharing, it should be reasonable. I live 18 miles south of Amherst and the rent is a little more reasonable. However, if you're not interested in student housing - there will be quite a bit available beginning next month on Craig's List -> western mass.

    During the orientation session, it was recommended to have a car - for the practicals. However, you might be able to carpool.

    So excited for everyone - can't wait to meet in September.

    You guys mind posting your academic stats?

    Also do you think they emailed everyone yesterday or still in the process?

    I know I am probably holding onto a tiny piece of hope, but It is all I have...

    sure PM your info
    Just out of curiosity - why are you 98% sure that you will choose UMass over Wagner and UMDNJ?

    I think they are still in the process of emailing people. As long as you did not get a rejection letter there is still hope! Good luck
