So I've had two interviews - one was a rejection, one still pending. And the rest of my schools have yet to get back to me. At this point, I'm feeling pretty strongly that reapplication is going to have to be my next move.
Because I don't really have a solid amount of PCE, I really wanted to try and get going on this now before the next cycle opens up. But I was also looking at taking some classes to increase my GPA.
Just kinda wondering if anyone knows if it is encouraged or frowned upon to ask the admissions of the schools interviewed with for some constructive feedback. Going into this cycle, I half expected not to get any interviews because of my lack of hours.. but getting a couple was a bit confusing. Not sure if I should be focusing on gaining hours (only hesitant b/c I have a full-time job I want to keep and it has been a real struggle to gain additional employment in my location around my current schedule) or if I should try to improve my GPA (not horrible sGPA 3.52; overall GPA 3.67 - not including some phlebotomy credits for a class I took late last year).
For me, I felt like my rejection interview went really well. And it's a program I would love to attend, so I really want to improve for next year - but I want to spend my time in the most effective way. Has anyone else contacted programs and received specified critiques that were beneficial? Or should I simply try to improve in multiple ways overall?
