  1. Thanks for everyone's input!
  2. Thanks for the advice - I'm a first time applicant. One more question - is it recommended to wear a dark suit like gray/black? I have a suit that is a lighter shade of navy. Thanks again!!
  3. Thoughts on a neatly trimmed beard for interviews? It's who I am but don't want to jeopardize my chances if clean shaven is the way to go. Also, is wearing a suit with a tie recommended? Thanks!
  4. Has anyone received confirmation of their application?
  5. Hi, I'm out of state and will be applying to Wingate. Can someone tell me the advantages/disadvantages of each location? Also, on CASPA the question is why this location. Guessing it's just a location answer and not program specific. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  6. Is there a best way to put submit into the application? Copy/past, re-type or other. Just want to make sure. Thanks!!
  7. I downloaded my application so that I could look over the hard copy before submission. I realized under evaluations that one of my evaluators did not list their title, organization and contact number. Only their email. I'm assuming they listed their title on the actual letter but not sure. I did list their title and info under my experiences. Does anyone know if I can have this evaluator call into CASPA and add this information? Just not sure what the schools look at first. Any input would be greatly appreciated!!

    GRE scores

    GRE scores

    I scored 2-151's on the GRE. I felt good knowing I jumped through that hoop. However, I just got the official scores from ETS and realized that even though I scored a 151 on the quantitative it was a 42%. Do the schools only care about hitting the 150 targets or do they look/care about the percentile. Could this be an issue for me?
  10. Another question - I see for example Psychology listed as a prerequisite. It lists the requirements as 3 credits/3 grades. I understand the credits but what does the 3 grades refer to? I also had one prerequisite from a school that listed 2.8 grades as a requirement. Help me understand the grades part please. Thanks!!
  11. Some schools did state that you could apply genetics, biochemistry to the Biology I and Biology II prerequisites. I initially thought that Biology I and Biology II had to be those exact classes. Not the case? Many of the schools just list Bio I and II without any descriptors. Do you feel it's ok to list my upper level biology classes there or should I contact each school? Thanks so much!
  12. How do schools use these prerequisites? Is it just a preliminary way for them to make sure an applicant has met their requirements? Or, do they figure a GPA from them and make selections based on just those prerequisites moving forward? I have a few upper level biology classes that I am having trouble plugging in. I would hope the overall science GPA from the transcript would be looked at before decisions are made. I would really appreciate everyone's input so I know how to proceed. Thanks!
  13. That was my thought process. I just hadn't read this advice anywhere. Thanks!
