    post-grad plans for pre-dents with low GPAs? Do grad schools take DAT?

    LONG STORY SHORT, my GPA probably ain't gonna cut it (3.25 cGPA, 3. 2 sGPa). I still have a year to bring it to a 3.38 cgpa and 3.29 sGPa before I graduate and apply, but I still don't know if i'll make the cut, thus, im planning on post-graduation plans on the very likely chance that I end up...

    Hi all I've done a lot of research on these forums and have heard lots of differing opinions, but none very recent.

    I am planning to go for the Johns Hopkins MPH. It will cost me about 80,000 (62,000 tution fee + 18,000). I don't have much idea about FAFSA, since it is my first time dealing with it. My plan is to pay all of the expense with FAFSA loan. Is it possible to get this high amount of loan from FAFSA...
