Hey is anyone applying to MUSC for the 2011 application session? I am. I look forward to seeing the outcomes. I'll also be attending their info session.

Hey there,

I am a fellow applicant as well. According to last year's posts, it looks like it will be a while before we hear anything, but I just wanted to say hello and good luck! I am on the other side of the country so unfortunately I won't be able to attend any information sessions, but I would love to hear your thoughts about the program after you are able to go! Feel free to PM me, or just post on here if you'd prefer. Thanks!

any suggestions on whether or not to submit priority? I have my application filled out and ready to submit, but I'm afraid to 1) get locked into MUSC before I know if I get in elsewhere and 2) that I won't get in either way because of some poor grades.

Even by applying by the priority deadline, you still won't know of their decision until sometime in December. I'd go ahead and submit it, especially if you have already filled everything out. When I went to the info session back in April, we were told that if you have any grades lower than a B in your core science courses that you should retake the class before you apply.

Hello everyone! I'm excited as well to be applying this year. I've worked at MUSC for the past 3 years and am from Charleston, so I can say that you'd be very happy here :) I'm on the lower end of the stat scale as it were, but I'm applying anyway this year. I know it might take another year, but I'm being optimistic!

 

Pre-req GPA: 3.4

Cum GPA: 2.9

GRE: 1030

Pt Hrs.: 4,000+

Shadowing hrs: 140

 

Good luck to everyone!!

I just signed up for the October 21st info session. I currently live in Tennessee, but MUSC is my top choice so I'm making the trek! Anyone else attending this session?

kateland, I noticed you said you were on the low end of the stat scale, and I was wondering if you could explain why you think that. Since you have worked at MUSC, do they consider your stats to be on the low end for the program?
