    I will be going, yes. I luckily have most of my undergrad debt paid off and have saved up a lot where I won’t have to take out the full $80k in loans.

    It’s SO expensive. In the end I believe it ends up being close to $80k. They do pretty much guarantee you a job at MGH after which is really great and I’ve heard it’s a great program overall, just really expensive. I got accepted with a 3.4 undergrad and a 3.7 pre-req. I do believe it is much easier to get into than Umass! They accept about 100 students where Umass only accepted around 48 for this cohort.

    @JDanielle3687 https://www.facebook.com/groups/mghabsnspring2021/?ref=share Here is a MGH facebook page for the group starting in January if you decide to accept your admission! Good luck!

    @Future.Derm.NP No someone called admissions and they said by the beginning of November! (The comment above mine)

    It’s gotta be this week or next!! I wish they gave an exact day instead of “by early November” so I could stop checking every hour 😂

    @Future.Derm.NP I know the website originally said we would hear back 3-4 weeks after the deadline but I’m not sure if that has changed since they had pushed the deadline to the 15th? I check every hour 😂 I was also confused about the FAFSA!

    Is anyone else’s portal saying ‘account not authorized’ when they try to log in? I haven’t had any issues logging in previously

    The website says we will get our admissions decisions via email!

    @JDanielle3687 Right?! It’s insane how much it costs. I put my deposit down at MGH because I didn’t want to lose my spot if I don’t get into Umass but I am really hoping I do 🙏🏼

    @martijan I get that. I got accepted to MGH for Spring 2021 but Umass is so much more affordable. Crossing my fingers for all of you!

    Did you guys apply / get into any other programs?

    I remember reading on a past thread you meet just a few other times on campus for progress checks/skill assessments, but I’m not entirely sure!

    Yes Boston is quite pricey to live in! I live about 45 minutes from the school so I’d be commuting, but if you end up attending Umass, look into Quincy, Somerville, Braintree, Weymouth, etc. They’re right outside Boston but still within a 30-35 minute drive/close to the T 🙂 If you have a few roommates you can also find a decently priced place closer to the city; Brighton, Cambridge, Allston, etc!

    @martijan Really?! I’ve been anxiously waiting since the beginning of August! 😂 I was so excited that today was finally the day they’d start reviewing

    OK thanks so much! I’ll give them a call just to be sure
