Is there an accepted student facebook page? 

I think once you send your deposit you get an MCPHS ID number and then you submit that number to join the facebook group

Just declined my seat as I have been offered admission to another program. I hope it opens up for somebody else to hear the good news soon!

Interviewed 10/04 and received notice that I was waitlisted on 12/10. Super bummed as I really wanted to attend this program. But for those who have been accepted, big congratulations :)!

Anyone think I still have a shot? Has anyone been waitlisted before and been rejected or accepted? First time for me.

 

Fyi- mcphs does not give out ranking statistics.

Do not lose hope whatever you do! I was accepted off the waitlist back in March when I interviewed last novermber. Most of the people I know in the program and my friends were actually accepted off the waitlist. So all in all If you’re waitlisted you have a very good shot of being accepted!

Hi all! I applied in June, and have only heard that MCPHS has received my application. Has anyone reached out for a status check? Is this not recommended as it makes an applicant look impatient? Just really interested in the program!

Hey! I applied in June and have not heard anything as well. I called about a month ago and was told my application was still under review. Hopefully we hear something soon

Hi! Interviewed on 11/8 and rejected on 12/11. Actually found out about not being accepted via phone call. The assistant director from MCPHS Manchester called to let me know that I was not offered a seat to the Boston campus and offered an interview at the Manchester campus. Has this happened to anyone? Later, I called MCPHS Boston and found out that my application was not "rejected" at the time, but that all the seats for the Fall 2019 start have been filled. A few hours after that, I received an email from MCPHS Boston that said, "Unfortunately, the committee has not approved your candidacy for admission for a Fall 2019 start at our Boston campus." Was that an automatic rejection and does that mean that there was no chance for me to be waitlisted? A couple of hours after I received the email, I switched my application to the Manchester location on CASPA (requested by the assistant director in order for them to invite me for an interview). Good luck everyone and congrats on those accepted!

@Hygiene2020 I went to MCP Boston and walked by this building everyday and had no idea that it was a hotel! It is called The Baldwin at Longwood Medical Centre. Seems like it has pretty good reviews and is decently priced. It's also super close to the building that you would be interviewing at. Hopefully this helps!

My interview ended around 4:30. I would not take a 6pm flight due to travel time to the airport and then to get through security once you are at the airport.

Hi everyone! Does anyone know for certain if the Boston class for fall 2019 is already full? I received an interview invite today and am debating whether to actually go if the class is already full.

I just received an interview spot! I'm so excited!!! Any insight into the interview day? Also, I scheduled my interview and received confirmation, but the portal still has a tab for me to schedule interview-I assume it will be updated later. I just want to make sure I don't miss anything 🙂
