This seems like a silly question but am I missing something because I thought this program did not require GRE scores? Thanks for any help clearing up my confusion.

Did you get the e-mail that says they have to process your application, and once it is complete, they will review it? That e-mail confused me because I thought it meant my app wasn't complete until I re-read it a couple of times.

I submitted CASPA and the supplemental July 15. I got the e-mail that it's being processed but not that it's being reviewed!! I interviewed at MCPHS last cycle, didn't get in so I'm a reapplicant. I wonder if they review re-applicants separately? I'm so anxious to hear, it's killing me! :-_-:

I apologize if this has been answered already, but do we need to send AP test scores if we passed out of gen bio in college? On my college transcript submitted to CASPA it says AP credit was awarded. Thanks!

@bostongirl, I used AP scores for gen bio and it also appears on my college transcript but they still told me that I needed to send in the AP report. Good luck!

Now I'm confused. I just got an email stating that I have been put on their waitlist and have potential for a seat as they are available, but I haven't even been interviewed there yet.
