Best of luck! Everyone in my group didn’t do too hot so it made me feel a bit better. I also explained my terrible score in my actual interview but I liked the program a lot! The people who interviewed me were super cool and really wanted to get to know me and my personality which was refreshing and definitely less stressful. 

Thank you! Here’s hoping to becoming future classmates!

Received my conditional acceptance yesterday! For those accepted, do you if we need to submit the three things to the graduate school or if they are just verifying what was already submitted to FIU and CASPA?

Do you already live in Miami?

I do not! I actually grew up in Coral Springs (if you’re familiar with the Florida area, if not - it’s near Fort Lauderdale) but I currently live in Southern California. So I’ll be moving early/mid July. What about you?

Has anyone gotten an email about their spot on the waitlist? I'm just wondering if they sent out a waitlist/the bulk of the acceptances on the same day like they did last cycle.

Hey everyone, 

I am planning on applying to FIU for the 2019-20202 cycle. Do those of you who received interviews have any guidance? Is the entrance exam mostly over A&P? or are there other subjects involved? How was the interview setting? Was it MMI? Thanks for any feedback.

Hello and congrats to those who got accepted. Recent graduate here with a quick suggestion regarding housing. Don't expect to stay in miami for all 27th months. Depending on how the program is heading, some if not everyone is required to do several rotations in the panhandle area (NW tip of Florida). Any questions regarding the staff/structure, feel free to reach out. Best of luck!

Could any current FIU student or grad help me with this.

Are only selected students given the HWCOM Graduate Need Grant and HWCOM Scholarships or is it all students that have EFC of 0. If not, how do I qualify for the HWCOM Grant and Scholarships?

What is the maximum amount of federal loan money given per semester to a student in this program if they have an EFC of 0?

Also do you know if any of your classmates have been given grants or scholarships by FIU. 

And what is the total cost if attendence per semester if someone could please please screenshot their financial summary it would be really helpful.

I’m not sure about the grants and scholarships but after completing FAFSA it appears the highest reward is 20.5k with just loans. You can get a graduate PLUS loan which will reward up to the total cost of attendance MINUS and aid already awarded.

I attached what was offered for Fall and Spring so you get an idea. After each semester tuition, there was still about 10k of refund for me. It also depends on in-state vs. out-state.

Regarding the scholarships, I am unsure. It is best if you contact someone from the financial department.
