I thought I would start a thread for the 2016-2017 cycle.

 

Who else is applying? I talked with admissions a few weeks back and they said they already have over 100 applications....crazy!

 

Good luck everyone!

I received an email on 7/15/16 saying that my application was received and under review, and haven't heard anything since. Best of luck!

I applied last year and was waitlisted and ultimately denied.  Applying again this year.  It's a popular and established program so I imagine they receive a ton of applications.  Their minimum GPA requirement, lack of a supplemental app, and no GRE make it easy for people to randomly apply there.

Good luck to everyone.

Pre-req: 4.0

Overall: 3.1

Science: 3.04

Healthcare: 18,000 hours in cardiac Cath labs

Extra: acls instructor, cme presenter to emt's and hospital staff.

I applied last cycle, was waitlisted, and got accepted into the January 2018 start program. 

 

 

Goodluck to everyone.

Glad to see interviews are starting for this round :)  Congrats to those who get the opportunity! I applied last year and am still on the wait list, but got an early acceptance to the class starting in 2018 as well! If anyone has questions feel free to PM me, I'll help the best I can. I know it seems like an incredibly long time from now...but I can't wait to meet my fellow classmates! Good luck on the interviews!

Anyone know how long it generally takes to hear back for an interview? My application was verified about 2 weeks ago and I'm wicked nervous

Absolutely! On my interview day, we started off with the writing portion first...they are very aware that most people are nervous and help you get that out of the way :) There is nothing to prepare for the writing sample, its really about you...so nothing to worry about! They have a few presentations about the school, financial aid, etc., and then a few students to answer questions and give a tour. They call everyone out in groups to go interview (no particular order): its not a group interview, its 1 on 1 and its so much better than having everyone wait around! If your group isn't called you are either touring or asking current students questions. They do their absolute best to make you feel comfortable and busy and the day flies by incredibly fast...I believe I was done around 11am? Good luck and let me know if there are any other questions I can answer!

Hello! Do u know how many students they are accepting for this class? I just noticed that this school has probation status for accreditation due to large volume of recent class sizes!

It probably isn't too late to apply since the program is next January and their cycle is open for a while.  Just bear in mind that there are a lot of applications processed already and interviews/acceptances underway.  

 

I received an Interview invite today but I am going to decline since I have been accepted to another program.

      Hi everyone,
      I am a pre-PA school who recently had an interview at MCPHS Boston PA Program.  When I visited there for my interview, they said the result will come out in 2 to 3 weeks, but they did not specify how they would let us know.  Does anybody know if they email us or call us whether we got rejected or accepted?  Also, should I contact the school if I do not hear back after 3 weeks?
      Thanks!

      Hey everyone - thought I would make a group for those who have been accepted to start in January of 2018!

      Hi everyone! I was looking every where and was not able to find a forum for Manchester campus. So i decided to start one here. It is for anyone who applied, thinking to apply, interviewed and accepted. Please share your interview experiences, questions anything.

      Hey everyone, I know its early still, but I'd like to hear from others that were accepted to start at MCPHS in January of 2016!  I was accepted, but applied to both the 2015 and 2016 start dates, so acceptances for those who applied to just 2016 will come a little later.
       
      Cant wait to meet everyone, and good luck!
