  1. hey every body! was curious if I am understanding correctly that this program does not require the GRE? this is a bit of my Achilles's heel and if true I am very excited to apply. Also what is everyone's typical stats for applying? I would like to see how I stack up against everyone. Accumulative GPA: 3.03 Last 60 GPA 3.73 PRE-REQ GPA: 3.81 Graduate school GPA 4.0 (MPH second semester) GRE: Bad bad bad 298 Shadowing hours: 5,000+ ( military flight medic) community service: 2,000+
  2. Yeah I am kinda bumbed out about it. At least he responded to you, I sent an email a while back and did not even get a reply. I was told that they were switching to a last 60 GPA and if that was the case I would have been golden. I am setting my sites on more veteran friendly schools like South Alabama. It is a bit irritating that all of these schools push for "diversity" and then they first first cut is GPA and GRE. I get that they have standards and metrics, but they should also look at the whole picture. Not to sound arrogant but at 30 years old I have done a lot more than the cookie cutter college graduate. I have taken multiple courses while on deployments, having a family, and still excelling as a flight medic and instructor. Oh well in time I will find a school to take me.
  3. to my understanding not like that. The metrics come from CASPA. They can use CASPA to say we want to see who all the applicants are with a 3.5 and higher GPA who have taken xyz classes, or any variation. CASPA gives them a sweet program to see precise metrics they are looking for. Do not worry I haven't seen my process yet, I am still hopeful.
  4. So talking with Josh today they are using some metrics from Caspa. The admissions board is requesting specific names. They are on their fourth or fifth batch, not a 100% how many are in each or anything of that nature. There will only be 35 seats for this first cycle. If you got the email saying you were processed it’s a good sign, if your like me and have not seen that email yet it’s kinda limbo land. Oh well fingers still crossed.
  5. I submitted in early January and completed my supplemental all in the same time frame. I wonder if it’s just the computer generated or something random. I’m doing my best to stay positive
  6. So I just talked to Josh in the graduate admissions department. He stated that they are still on track for everything. They still plan to review applications once the 31MAR2020 deadline hits, and they are still planning to matriculate an inaugural class this year, pending accreditation. The selection committee will meet some time in the next two weeks.
  7. I am a bit confused. Are they postponing the inaugural class for the entire year, or is it that they are just not going to interview people until they receive accreditation? I do not think they would do something terrible like continuing to accept people's money and applications if they were not planning to matriculate a class some time this year. I know it is a private institution and all but I think they may be trying to work something out. I have not been able to get anyone on the phone.
  8. Has anyone heard anything new lately? I feel it is kinda just a waiting game.
  9. talking with the department they are hopefully opening up applications in mid-March or April for review. They said they are attempting to treat it like some of their other master's programs like speech pathology. Their key message was just bare with them, it is a new program and they are trying to work out the kinks and make the process stream line once it starts. I have not heard anything on veteran's preference, but I know that is a huge thing with other Alabama public schools. I am not sure how that applies to private programs.
  10. I completely agree! I know it defiantly works better in my favor, especially if they do a holistic review. My package is weak in accumulative GPA and GRE, but as far as shadowing hours, last 60 GPA, and experience I am golden. I am hoping this delay pays off in some of our benefit. I am just worried that I will start applying in the new cycle and may get picked up late. Honestly my wife and I will just be happy with getting accepted some where, even more excited with a Christian based school. I do wish they offered a co-master's in public health.
  11. it seems like it keeps getting pushed back. I spoke with them in January an they said Feb 2nd they would be opened. I am curious as to how many interviews will be conducted for the 35 seats. I also am curious as to how many applicants have already been accepted else where.
  12. Hello all, I am looking for any and all assistance/ guidance anyone can provide on entering my Joint Service transcript in to CASPA. All of the schools I have spoken with say they will take my A&P even though it is over 8 years old only because it is listed on my JST. I reached out to CASPA and they were of no real assistance. Thank you all for your time and help.
