    Has anyone else gotten acceptance letters? I'm getting really nervous, I haven't heard anything since the initial email saying they received my application. Also, if you have been accepted would you mind sharing your GPA/background?

    My GPA was a 3.6. My bachelor's was in Psychology (with a minor in Philosophy). I had about 4 years' experience working in a group home/as a case manager with the developmentally disabled population.

    Mindylane, what do students do for health coverage while in the program? Does the school offer any healthcare as a student or do we have to get private insurance on our own?

    I still haven't heard anything either. It's quite nerve wracking!

    I believe classes begin on August 28th, but I'm not sure. There is a mandatory orientation that is 4 days long...from August 21-23 and the 26th. So I imagine classes will start after the orientation is complete.

    Hey Dessi,
    Yes, they do offer health insurance! I think it's about $1700 for the year.

    They will send you an email before you start with the information (I don't know anything about deadlines or anything). They are so incredibly proactive about sending out information about other scholarships they find throughout the semester, too! I got a scholarship from an essay that they told us about before the semester started... anything helps Good luck!

    Are you including the cost of EVERYTHING? Tuition is about $47k... you can definitely lower your other costs, honestly. I took out loans for a lot less and have been managing...

    They sent out letters and not emails? Did you receive the letter today? I think that might mean a rejection for me, because I haven't received any news yet! :/
