    UVA versus Hopkins Post-Bacc Programs (for Career Changers)

    I've been accepted to UVA and Hopkins' post-bacc programs for career changers. Anyone have opinions about one versus the other? UVA seems like a more collaborative rather than competitive environment, and features Post-Bacc-only classes for almost every prerequisite. At Hopkins, prereqs are...

    Does anyone know if the JHSIP notifies applicants on a case-by-case basis or if they alert everyone March 1st? Has anyone else applied or attended? I applied to BSI Microbiology, Pulm and Crit Care, and the stem cell research.
