I thought I would start a new thread for the new cycle for the Boston campus.  Best of luck everyone.  If any current students can post their feedback about this program that would be awesome!  Thanks!

Anyone get any confirmation emails or anything yet? I was verified about 2 weeks ago, haven’t heard anything yet from the program.

Verified and submitted about a month ago. No word from the program yet.

I applied to their accelerated program in 2017. It took them about 1 month to send me their decision to reject my application after verifying it. Not a big deal, because I got into another program (my top choice anyway). I hope it goes well for y'all in Boston. Good luck.

When I applied last year I never received a confirmation email after being verified. I was verified at the end of July l and it wasn’t until October that I got an email for an interview!

I sent in my completed CASPA on July 2, waiting for it to be reviewed now.

@Lolo13 If you don't mind me asking you, how was your application like last year you applied? I am soo nervous of if I would even be given a spot for interview.

@Lolo13 If you don't mind me asking you, how was your application like last year you applied? I am soo nervous of if I would even be given a spot for interview.

Last year I had:

1500 Hours as a nursing assistant in long term care for 2 years, 60 hours volunteer work as a tax preparer, 15 hours shadowing between 2 PAs in family practice, had multiple leadership positions within my university and job as lead trainer, was a tutor for my university, and graduated Phi Beta Kappa! I also had a cGPA of 3.70 and an sGPA of 3.63. 

For my letters of rec I got them from two nurses I work with, a professor and someone who was on the board of the PBK chapter at my school. 

As you can see my hours were not nearly as competitive as a lot of of the people on this site! I went into the last cycle thinking that I wouldn’t receive an interview as well but I ended up with 3 while only applying to 6 programs! I would also like to note I think what ended up making my application stand out despite lower than average hours of hce/pce was my leadership experience, letters of rec and my personal statement! I think as long as you can have people sell what type of person you really are and how you sell yourself in their PS will give you a chance at an interview here!

I gladly accepted a spot in the program here and will be starting this fall! Hope that was enough information about myself ?

What about this program excites everyone? I cannot seem to find any student testimonials. 

-What made this program appealing to me is that they give you winter breaks and one 3 month summer break after your first two semesters in the program.

-Also you get to take Anatomy Lab at Harvard Medical school which is basically across the street from campus.

-They are also renowned for their faculty and how friendly and helpful they are.

-You get to do rotations across New England and can take rotations at world class hospitals since campus is located in the heart of the Boston medical community.

-For me personally having gone to a VERY large university, the bigger class sizes hereare something that I really look forward to as well (labs are smaller though).

I think the only downside to this program for me is the cost as it’s about ~120k for the program.

Hey everyone! I was wondering if anyone got a confirmation email from MCPHS?

I got an email with a application portal log in and it says my application is complete and under review!

That is great! I received an email from them on the 15th just about thanking me for my interest in them. Would you mind sharing your stats?

Yes, I got an email this morning giving me access to the application portal and telling me my application is under review by the admissions committee. I submitted on 8/31 and was verified on 9/1. Good Luck!

Good afternoon everyone. Although I submitted my application on 8/01 and verified 08/03, I have yet to receive an application portal. What was the email address the login information sent from?
