Hi ABosslet

how was your interview? Mine is June 30th, its the last day so I'm really nervous..but we'll see. Also what is the dress code? Do people usually wear suits?

Thanks so much and Good luck!

Hi Posh28,

If you read other posts, they will all essentially say the same thing about the interview, it was pretty laid back...The presentation beforehand is really helpful and informative, plus you can ask any questions that you have at that time. Dress code is business casual, some people wore suits, but it's not necessary. Hope this helps-Good luck!!

Hi Guys!

I am planning on finishing my psychology degree by December 2011. I hope to apply to the RUSH GEM program. I was wondering if I can still apply to the program even though my degree wont be done by the time of the deadline? If I apply for the Winter Quarter when would be the best time to turn in my application? Thank you and have a great day!

Hi Sparikh516

I'm pretty sure you can apply before you have your degree because a lot of other grad programs are like, people apply before their last semester starts. I think they just want you to have all your pre-reqs done before you start and I guess have most of them done by the time you apply. The deadline is May 1 for the winter quarter so the best time to apply would probably be April or earlier? I think...they told me that they interview based on when they received your application even though its not rolling anymore.

Hope that helps!

Thanks again for the help Posh28!

Do you mind me asking a couple of other questions?

What is the average gpa of each student who got accepted into the program and what is their average science gpa. I failed my nursing orgo class last semester and I am retaking this summer. The D wont be on my gpa but it will be on my transcript. Do you know how competitive the program is. Like how many students apply and how many are accepted. At the moment I have a 3.29 gpa. I still have to take AP 1/2, mircobio, and stats.

Hey Sparikh516

Sorry for the late response. I was hoping someone else would answer those questions because I really don't know those stats and would also like to know. All I know is that around 70 get in and I heard there were like 500 applicants, but I could be wrong. Anyone know??? Anyone know what happens if you get an interview but don't get in? Do you go to the next cycle or do you have to apply again? Any cases of that?

Thanks.

Hi there,

I went for my interview this past tuesday and they said that between 300 and 400 had applied, only 122 were granted interviews and that there are 72 slots. If you don't get in, you can get wait listed or they will ask you if you'd like your application to be applied to the next cohort, but generally there are more applicants for the summer start, so its more competitive. If you had an interview this month we're supposed to find out on July 9th via email if we got in. I'm not sure what the avg is w/ grade/gpa/gre stats for a class. My undergrad gpa is far from stellar, but my prereq grades are all As.

Good luck and hope to see you there!

Hello! This has been so helpful to read everyone's responses about the GEM program at Rush. I am interviewing on Tuesday 6/29 (for Winter 2011 start) and am so relieved to have some sort of idea about what to expect! I've been thinking about this since last August when I attended an information session and am finally finishing up all my pre-requisites.

Congrats to those who are current students and those who have been accepted! And best of luck to those in the same boat as me. :) Maybe I'll see some of you Tuesday! :)
