  1. It seems that your scores may be a bit low. GRE is average, overall GPA is average and science GPA is in the low side. If you applied to schools that prioritized grades and scores, that could be the reason for the cricket noise.
  2. Would like to start a forum for all those accepted and attending in May 2020. Congrats to you all!
  3. Frankly, if you’re accepted already and it’s not a tentative course for matriculation, who cares if your grade is low? I remember genetics wasn’t easy but it’s worth learning. May as well stay with it to better yourself.
  4. If there’s no difference in quality of education, I would go to the cheaper option.
  5. Depending on the school it took me no more than 5 business days for my interviews.
  6. Yes, I have received a confirmation from Jaimee Kester that they received my deposit. This came 2 weeks after I had put the money down. I was accepted 8/26, deposit paid 9/5 and confirmation 9/19. Hope this helps. Also, if someone has started a Facebook group or something for the class of 2022, let me know. I need to find a roommate!
  7. The EMT took me only a summer to get so around 3-4 months. I worked 24 on and 48 off for a while, so roughly 60 hrs a week takes 33ish weeks. All together about a year. I would highly recommend the experience, both in terms of hours and learning.
  8. That is exactly what I did, but not by choice. I applied during my senior year with no PCE and received only waitlists and rejections. Fast forward a year the only real change in my experience was an EMT cert and 2000+ EMT hours and I’m sitting at 3 acceptances currently. I feel I am adequately prepared to start school and have some great experience to boot. It may take a bit longer, but you’ll have a much better chance of learning and having a good application if you are able to focus on one aspect at a time. I agree with above comment, sprinkling coursework will keep your head in the academic study mode.
  9. Plan to decline the acceptance I received today. Congratulations to the person who receives the spot.
  10. I wouldn’t say pointless, but that GRE score is not competitive at all. There’s, of course, a chance for interviews if the rest of your application is up to snuff, but if your GRE is as competitive as the rest of the app I would go ahead and wait. I don’t know anyone that has gotten an interview without at least a 295+
  11. @laurenm15 I think neighborhoodscout.com has pretty good data on individual cities if you wanna check it out
  12. 1000$. 500 refunded if notified 4 weeks prior to start date I believe.
  13. After much consideration I have decided to turn down my acceptance for another school. Congrats to the person that this opens a spot for.
  14. I went ahead and emailed Lori last week to make sure she got my reply and she told me that she had received it, along with my campus choice, and that I should be receiving an official acceptance letter. I expect something this week for sure.
  15. I have not heard anything from the school after accepting their offer.
