    Not at all, I am a senior at Florida State University receiving a bachelors in Family and Child Sciences. My gpa is 3.5 and pre-req gpa is 3.7-3.8. Thank you and keep your head up! Maybe call and ask an admissions person what you could do better to improve your chances?

    Itulloch21 - Would you say Amherst is a safe place to live?

    For those that are coming from out of state: are you planning on driving/shipping/leasing a car there? I have yet to decide which is the better option.

    definitely! i've never felt unsafe at the bars at night or walking home with my friends. I mean there are crazies everywhere so you gotta be careful no matter what I suppose. but i really dont have any complaints my whole time at Umass so thats good! Where are you coming from?

    Okay all, so I am trying to create a fb group and am not having very much luck! It seems that it will only let me create one if I add my friends as members. So if someone else knows how to do it go right ahead! otherwise I think we have to become friends and it should work?!

    [FONT=verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Itulloch21 - Thanks for the reply! I'll be coming from California, so the opposite coast. It'll be a big change/move for me as I've never been out of California for school. I'm a bit nervous, but the program is soooo much cheaper than any other program I've come across. Yea, to make a group on FB you have to have friends you can invite into it first.

    Itulloch21 - Okay, I added you! (: You said you lived on campus, right? How are the rooms? Are they spacious/nice/old? I am thinking of applying for on campus apartments since it'll be easier and I won't have to buy furniture etc.

    jmr0620, I have a BA in Art History from UCLA, with a college gpa of 3.55 and a pre-req gpa of 3.65. I'm sorry you didn't get into UMass; don't give up, the right program will come up.

    Itulloch21, thanks for setting up the facebook group. I'm excited to get to know everyone that will be attending orientation!
