Is anyone else applying to this program? I'm submitting my application today!

I applied for Jan. 2015 but if I don't get in I will be re-applying for May 2015! Good luck!!

Good luck to you as well :)

I plan to apply July 2015 for a spring start. I'm taking my last pre requisite now which is Microbiology. If you don't mind what are you guys undergrad gpa like?

I have also applied for summer 2015. Still waiting on my LORs to be submitted. I'll have a 3.3 overall and 3.8 prerequisites gpa. Good luck to all of you.

I got into Simmons...it's going to be hard to choose between the two

Well we probably won't hear from MGH till January.

Yeah- Simmons is my top choice due to the fact that the class sizes are smaller. My learning style is more suited to small classes and no online ones. I would also love to go to MGH, they're both fantastic programs. I'll most likely have to put a deposit down way before hearing from MGH but I that's a risk I'll take. They both have so many pros! I still have to meet with all the departments...it's a big decision so I want to make sure it's well calculated

Well, it seems like MGH is actually going to be my top choice so I'm going to be deferring my start at Simmons to make a decision. I thought Simmons seemed a little less expensive but after adding the chem requirement, travel, and other expenses it will be more (with less opportunity to work some). It will be a little challenging for me in the larger classes but I'm sure I can seek out assistance...and school is school - it's going to be a challenge regardless!

Sorry for the late response Treid but my undergraduate GPA was 3.5, graduate was 3.8, and my prerequisites so far (minus Micro) is 3.9 - I'm hoping to end up at least with a 3.7
