- 0May 20, '11 by yorienHey everyone, Im trying to get into umsls accelerated program for 2012. I know there is a ranking system they use to determine who gets in and who doesnt. To be frank I dont know just how competitive it is. Right now I've got a 3.83 oa gpa and a 3.0 science gpa. The transfer guide told me I should wait until the later application date so my science gpa will be higher. Any ideas?

The advisor I talked to (Jill) said she recommends taking atleast 3 of the 4 science classes before applying but ideally having them all done will give you the best shot.
- 0May 21, '11 by barnettdcmOkay, I have to correct my previous post. The point system is for the traditional and the part time program. The accelerated has a higher GPA requirement(3.2 minimum I think) and they won't consider you unless you have atleast that. You should talk with an advisor though, they are really helpful. I was just there last week and talked to Jill.

It's a full-ride, plus monthly stipend, & you just have to work a certain # of years in an "underserved" position. In the STL area, that would be about anywhere except an MD office or dialysis. I had 15 months financed (UMSL accelerated, summer class of 2010) & have a 2 year "obligation."
