1) GRE not required so I don't think that they have a code but you can self report your scores in CASPA

2) no supplemental in previous years

3) I believe they aim for 100 students between Worcester and Manchester

Has everyone who interviewed on 11/13 heard back yet? Just getting a little nervous that I haven't heard anything and wanted to know if people were in the same boat!

Just received my invitation to interview but won’t be taking it since I was accepted to my top school. Hope this gives someone else the chance!

I've accepted a spot at another program.  This will open a spot for someone on the waitlist.  Please don't loose hope if you're still waiting.  Lots can still happen between now and matriculation.  Good luck everyone!

I applied in August, heard back at the end of October. I have an interview on January 22nd. As I was scheduling my interview, I heard from someone in the department that there are also 2 interview dates in February. Really hoping that I can get into this program since this is my first cycle applying! Any helpful hints from those who have already been through the interview and been accepted?

Anyone that has interviewed, do you mind sharing structure and any helpful tips? I applied super late to this program (mid-December) and got an interview invite a month later-- scheduled for March.

I was wondering if anyone knew the admissions statistics for MCPHS Worcester? I was wondering how many students they accept and about usually how many they interview. I have been offered an interview in March and was wondering what the chance for admission are once being interviewed? I see lots of other people have already gotten a slot, congratulations.

They accept about 70 students for the Worcester campus. During my interview, the faculty said that they interview about 150 - 200 students. A faculty member also mentioned that even if you are waitlisted after your interview, you shouldn't be discouraged, because he said "the waitlist really moves" since a lot of candidates get offers from other programs and decide that they don't want to wait to start until January, meaning that their slots open up. Hope that helps!

Hi Folks. Congrats to everyone who got in! I will be interviewing for this program soon and was wondering if any could just talk about the structure of the interview. Is it group or solo and is it more personal or healthcare focused? Thanks.

The interview is broken up into a few different groups so that all the interviewees are not doing the same thing at the same time. There is a tour, question/answer, meet and greet with students, housing tour, group interview, individual interview, and a sort of personality survey. I would say it is more personal based than healthcare based and not something you can "prepare" for. Just be yourself. All the faculty and students there are super nice and welcoming.
