    Anyone out there accepted to Western Michigan? I was accepted to the Kalamazoo campus and am trying to learn more about possible future classmates and the program.

    Hello!
    I was just curious as to your stats if you don't mind sharing.
    I applied to WMU's program last year and I was sadly denied :(
    I'm going to reapply in February 2014 again and hope for the best. I'm also planning on applying to GVSU and Wayne State this time around but I'm really hoping for Western!

    My stats are:
    Major: Interdisciplinary Health Science with a minor in Psychology
    Overall GPA: 3.3
    Last 60: 3.85
    Prereq: 3.85

    As of now I have 20 observation hours in pediatrics, 20 in inpatient rehabilitation at a hospital and 20 in an vision rehabilitation center. I'm planning on getting at least 60 more over the course of the summer.

    WMU's application has an entire section on research courses and experience. As of now I have no experience with research programs, I wonder if that's going to be a deciding factor on whether or not I get into the program?

    Do you think my stats are competitive enough? It seems like everyone applying has great stats! Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
    How are you liking the program so far?
