Tyvin, thanks for your help! That helps a lot.

Joy, they'll definitely like your volunteer work. I don't think they'll care that it's not recent. I think they just like people who care about helping others, and it shows what kind of a person you are. I really think you will have a great chance of getting in!

Tyvin - You rock my world! I'm seriously grateful you've taken the time to reach out. :)

To be honest, the age median is one thing that I find very appealing about OHSU! I love all of the different perspectives it will bring to the classroom. I'm 30, so in some ways I feel like no spring chicken applying.

Summer - I'm always timid about my 3.67 prerequisite GPA:/. It could be a lot higher.

One thing I do like though, is our conversations just reinforce my theory - not one of us has the exact same strengths or weaknesses. We all bring something unique to the table. Love it! I will tell you one thing, I would NOT want to be the interviewers or the panel selecting the final cohort. They will have their jobs cut out for them with so many quality individuals. You ladies genuinely seem like great people.

Just got home and checked the mail and had the letter, placard and written questions in the mailbox. Yay!

I got mine in the mail today too. How fun :) yes I think there are probably a lot of amazing and qualified people, and it'll be a tough job to eliminate them. Hopefully we all get in, I'm so excited to have others in the same situation!

And your gpa is great, and you have a prior degree too! I think you'll do just fine! I think average has been between 3.58-4.0.

Summer - I was telling my husband how nice it is to have other moms going back to school. In my undergrad, I only had one or two here and there. Not a lot of people understood why I couldn't come to study sessions during nap time.

I really hope we all can join this adventure together for that reason - we understand what a juggling act school and family can be. It would be a great support system we would have from the get go.

Are you in GP, Medford or Ashland?

Is there some way to get notifications when you guys comment on here?? I always feel behind. :) I could be wrong, but I doubt they would confer with RCC to see which applicants applied to both programs. I was kind of thinking (and hoping) along the same lines as Summer's husband - that they ranked us from most likely to least likely for the interview dates. Although, my last name is Kimmons, so the three of us aren't that far apart alphabetically... Hmmph. I have a 3.87 pre-req GPA (why do they calculate minuses but not pluses?!) but not as much completed as you girls. Hopefully my healthcare experience will help me out a little bit. What are you planning to wear to the interview?

And I agree about the parenting thing; most of my classmates have been 20 and single and/or childless. They just don't get how hard it is to study with little ones around!! One of my best friends was also a mom of two, my age, and we were at the same point in our pre-requisites when her hubby took a job in Seattle and they moved. :( Hopefully we can develop that same kind of mom-camaraderie when we all get ACCEPTED! ;)

Joy, yeah I was never able to do study sessions because I usually study when my daughter is asleep at night. I live in white city now and work in Medford.

ShannaRenee, I get email notifications but they're very delayed haha. I'm not sure what I'm gonna wear to the interview, probably the same thing I wear to any interview, dress pants, nice top and a cardigan. I don't pull off the whole suit look.

Yes it's so nice to meet you guys who understand being a mom and we're closer to the same age.

I was hoping you weren't going to say a suit! My "professional" wardrobe mainly consists of scrubs, so I am limited. Lol. I was thinking pretty much the same: slacks, a dressy top, and a cardigan. Always safe. :)
