  1. Hi, everyone! My name is Jessica, and I'm a second year student at MCPHS at the Manchester campus (very soon to be a graduate!) I just wanted to let you all that are still looking for apts know that I stayed at a Red Oak apartment that was about 25 minutes away from the school (walking) but they also have some apts closer to the school that you might be interested in. When I first moved in, they had an awesome special of $500 off first month's rent, and I'm not sure about now, but if anyone is interested in knowing about any upcoming specials, you can call 603-988-1154 to speak to Gilbert, one of the leasing consultants (and my husband :) ) His email is gilbert@redoakapts.com if you wish to communicate with him this way, and this way, he can send you a lot more information about the apts. Good luck everyone! See you at orientation!
  2. Hi everyone, congratulations on your acceptance to MCPHS! That's one huge hurdle out of the way and on to the next so don't sigh just yet hahaha jk What I mean is it's a big accomplishment getting this far in the process to becoming a PA but it's only 1/4 of the process (1)acceptance, 2)graduation, 3)PANCE, and 4)job acceptance) I'll be starting my rotations this year and am looking to sell the books I used for didactic year. If anyone's interested, add me on facebook https://www.facebook.com/jessica.montemayor.92 and let me know via message or comment.
  3. I applied for the Jan 2013 start. I'm pretty sure they changed the deadline or else they wouldn't have taken my application lol I remember applying the day it was due
  4. I applied for the CitiAssist health professions loan, and I got it...you should look into it :)
  5. I've heard of people getting in as late as Dec for Jan starts. I say give it a go! It's only a few dollars to apply and no supplemental fee :)
  6. Update: CitiAssist (and I'm guessing most loan companies) won't let you apply until September for the Jan start of class.
  7. I know how you feel; I just got over that feeling when I received an invitation to MCPHS' program. I recommend applying to as many schools as you can. You will get at least one hit with that GPA (and yeah, get SOME hce...maybe through volunteering?)
  8. Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (Worchester and Manchester campuses) both start Jan 2013, however, you can only apply to one of them.
  9. Congrats, jmiller :D I saw in the Worchester forum that someone has answered your question regarding cadavers for a&p. Changing the subject, has anyone looked into CitiAssist health professions loan as an option to pay for school and/or personal finances? If anyone has a better option, please let us know. Some of us (me :/) are new at applying for loans...
  10. Dang, you really sold yourself! Great job and congratulations on your acceptances :)
  11. "The ends justify the means in this case." Well put! To the OP: as long as you keep that in mind, you will succeed. The people you should really be talking to at this point is your hubby and your immediate family. I, too, will be having a 6 wk old baby by the time my program starts, and having a plan of action set up by the family and the hubbs will give you the best peace of mind. God has something special in store for you; all it takes from your part is faith and determination. Good luck!
