  1. Hi I'm a non traditional applicant F/40 who majored in Media Production. I took my science prerequisites at a state college. I didn't score as high as I'd like on the GRE so I'm planning to apply to schools that do not require the GRE since I'm in a time crunch. I have the ability to move anywhere for the program. I don't mind submitting my GRE score although I'm curious what programs have a more holistic application process. I have over 2,000 hours of patient care. CUM GPA 3.4. Science 3.7? (not computed by CASPA) Can anyone suggest any programs? Also, I'm curious if there are any
  2. Hello all! I took the GRE in May and received a 153 on quant (49%tile), 152 verbal (54%tile), and I did pretty bad on the writing- 3.0 (15%tile). I was wondering how bad it would hurt my application to have a 3.0 on writing. I have ~2700 relevant PCE hours, over 1,000 HCE hours, 3.68 cGPA, 3.53 sGPA both GPAs are an upward trend. Should I be too worried? I definitely plan on taking the GRE again if I don’t get accepted this year. Anyone have experience applying with low GRE and still getting accepted? thanks!!

  6. Hi Everyone, I have an interview at the Meridian Campus in a bit over a week and was hoping that any current or former students, or those who have attended an interview already in 2013, could shed some light on what to expect on the day of? Was there a writing assignment? Was the interview in a group setting versus individual? What sort of interview questions were posed? Any tidbits of advice would be much appreciated. Best of luck everyone! -Eric
