Hi all..was reading some of the posts and just wanted to give my insight onto the application process, since this is my second year applying and know a little about what these anxious few weeks awaite.
Just to give you an idea I applied last year after finishing my B.S. in Biology at UNCW. I graduated with right at a 3.0 . My pre-reqs were all A's except Statistics and Micro in which I received a C in each class. Unfortuantely I did not get admitted into the program last year and they said it was because of the fact I was still enrolled in Dev. Psy. He went on to tell me that the past three years an average of 200 people applied and the applicants are put into either top-priority status or not top-priority. The become "top-priority"status your academic record should portray that you have completed all the pre-reqs and meet the min. gpa (I do believe that there might be exceptions if one exhibits an extremly high gpa, since I meet a girl who got accepted after still being enrolled in a prereq, but she also had a 3.8). Now just because you have all the pre-reqs done and meet the min. gpa doesn't mean you will automatically be accepted but you will be put in top priority. Only thing is there might be 75 other people that are top-priority as well, in which then the selection process is based on gpa.
As for when we will hear something, I got my letter last year on Oct. 1st and know that other people heard the first week of October. I hope this helps and good luck everyone!
