  1. Hi! I was wondering if you guys could share a bit more about your application and experience in peds. What kind of peds or children's experiences did you have before applying? What was your GPA? What do you think they looked for in your application? Thank you!

    That's a good questions..I'm actually not sure. I just assumed we could. I should ask that. Hopefully we get in for Spring!

    @Future.Derm.NP I'm so sorry to hear about your rejection! I would reach out to ---------------------- at UMB to see if that course will be accepted there to be sure. My plan was to apply to UMB for Summer 2021 if I don't get accepted for Spring. This would only set me back a semester. I am just planning to try to improve my essay and recommendation letters if needed. You could also look at UMASS Amherst or other UMASS branches.

    Same! I totally agree with you guys. I looked at some DNP programs too, but with the cost of the private school programs in Boston it seemed like it made more sense to do the bachelors at UMB first (fingers crossed!) and then pursue a masters while working as a nurse, but I totally get wanting to get all the schooling over with at once. Since I am not in a rush, I have debated just applying to UMB's program again for the Summer 2021 class if I don't get in for Spring. I hope they will be open to giving application feedback if I don't get in. I don't even want to think about that yet though...hopefully we all get in! So nervous!

    I was considering applying to MGH, but had the same thoughts with the financial reasons. I may apply to MGH if I don't get into UMB, but UMB is the only school I'm applying to for now. My overall GPA is a 3.5 and my prereq GPA is a 3.9. I know some people who recently graduated from the program at UMB and are kind of struggling to find jobs right now. They have taken CNA positions in the meantime and I've heard with MGH's program it basically guarantees you a job at MGH. Still not sure that is worth double the cost in tuition, but worth considering.

    --------------------a told me the same thing yesterday. I had a missing transcript that I wasn't sure would arrive today and she said that they are accepting materials until 10/15. I think some applicants are having trouble mailing/sending transcripts due to COVID delays. I know that was the case for me. I tried to send all of my transcripts in a packet at the beginning of September, but they never arrived at the Admissions Processing Center. So, I resorted to e-transcripts this past weekend, but one of my schools doesn't offer e-transcripts and employees aren't in the office at the school so it has been tricky to get the last transcript there. Anyways, seems like others are having similar mailing issues. It's really nice of them to extend the date..but I hope it doesn't effect my acceptance that I had a 'late' item...
