I'm a VA resident and thankfully was able to receive some grant money but I'm stuck between a lower cost/ lower ranked VCU vs a slightly higher cost but better-ranked UVA. I think both schools offer great opportunities and I could see myself going to both but I'm a bit more drawn to UVA because...

Hey guys! I was lucky enough to get accepted into both Temple and VCU for dental school. I'm out of state for both schools and I'm having a lot of trouble trying to choose between the two. I enjoyed the interview for both schools, but I was only able to have an in person experience at VCU, so I...
I'm starting a thread because I will be applying to OT schools this fall. I was hoping to receive advice from students who have gotten into these schools, their application experience, and perhaps their stats to compare to mine. I would like all the feedback that I can get because I'm scared...
So I recently took my DAT in march and now I am doing my shadowing and volunteering. I needed advice on when to apply and also which schools to apply to.
1.) GPA: 3.88
2.) DAT: AA= 21, Bio 21, General Chemistry 20, Organic Chemistry 23, Perceptual Ability 18, Quantitative Reasoning...
I was accepted to both schools. I love both schools, they are both clinically strong schools. I heard Louisville had trouble graduating students a couple years ago not sure if this is the current situation. Also, there isn't a big difference in tuition (~5k). Inputs are appreciated :)
Just wanted to create a thread on the current VCU SAEP program cycle since the deadline for early decision just passed. Also, if anyone has already been through this program, would you recommend it? There isn't that much information on it online so I just want to make sure that I...
Hello everyone! After combing through many of the other threads in search of information about this year's VCU application cycle (and coming up empty handed) I decided to start one myself! Has anyone heard back yet? According to the admissions timeline on the website, regular decision...
Hi, I recently got accepted into both VCU and UIC and I am trying to decide between the two schools! I am really torn between the both schools because they both are really good schools. Being not from either state, the cost of both programs would be similar and I would love any input on the pros...

Hello, I am a Canadian who got accepted to both of these schools this week. I think I only have 5 business days to decide.
Hawaii is beautiful. I fell in love with Hawaii and the school while I was there. I would feel like the luckiest person ever to go to medical school...
Hi guys, I've really been struggling deciding between these two schools. I guess I feel like it makes sense to go to UCF - it has great step scores and match lists, it's more affordable, and my family is near by. But for some reason, I fell in love with VCU, and I feel like my heart is there...
I currently have a tough decision, and was very fortunate be accepted into both Temple and VCU's school of medicine. Although I am very thankful, I am now tasked to choose one of these schools! At the moment, the cost of attendance for both schools are pretty much the same (VCU is...
I am currently trying to decide between VCU and Rush and find myself flip-flopping every couple of days. What do you guys think?
Long-term Career Goals:
Competitive Specialty (preferably Ophtho/Otolyn/Rads/EM)
West Coast Residency (prefer CA)
Leave the door open for academic medicine/research...
So I'm kind of in a big predicament right now.
I just got accepted to VCU's Summer Academic Enrichment Program (SAEP) last week and it's from May 22 to June 29th. It's basically a 6 week program where I take 3 dental school level classes (anatomy, pharmacology, and physiology) in VCU. I already...
I am a Canadian MSc. student who is applying to U.S. MD and DO schools this year. Given the disadvantage that Canadians face as out-of-state/international applicants to the U.S., I want to hedge my bets by applying to a post-bacc program. I've read about the linkages that some programs...
Pretty glad I have a choice, but now I have no idea what to do.
Background: From Virginia, want to match in Cali (born and raised there), probably gas, opthal, or rads. I feel like my situation is more or less Cost vs Lifestyle vs Prestige.
++ Great scholarship offer...
Hey, whats up. I was wondering if anyone has any insight into the VCU Surgery Preliminary spot? Are there any residents there that would be interested in answering a few questions or even just giving some opinions on their experience thus far?
I haven't found a thread for the 2018-2019 VCU CERT program so here it is! I applied at the end of November and was recently offered admission.

I am a high school senior. I recently got an interview for the VCU Guaranteed Dental program. Are the interviews for these programs different than the interviews for dental school? Do you guys have any tips specific to the BS/DDS interview?
Since the beginning of December, I've been in a bit of a bind. I received acceptances to VCU, LECOM, and Nova. Obviously, only one of them can be chosen, but I suppose it would be best to get other opinions.
Despite being a Florida resident, VCU seems to be the cheapest option since LECOM and...

I've been chasing UVA ever since I started at the community college, but now that application time is coming around, I've gotten honest with myself and it has sort of hit me that maybe a competitive school like UVA where A's are hard to come by (for example, Physics curves down) isn't the best...
So I took my DAT on 7/31/17 and here are my scores
Overall, very happy with my scores! I prepared for 8 weeks, following Ari’s schedule. Additionally, I am a Bio major with minors in Chem and Art. I took a few...
Hey guys I was thinking about applying for MD schools for the 2018 cycle (as this cycle is too late) but wasn't sure if a post bacc would be right for me for this upcoming year or more clinical work/retaking MCAT.
In terms of statistics:
MCAT: 129 125 125 130 (509)
Overall GPA 3.5 science GPA...
Greetings and Salutations all!
The new application cycle has started, so I have started this thread for those who will be applying to VCU. I applied last year, so if you are new to the whole application process and have any questions, feel free to ask.
Best of luck, everyone!
I couldn't find a thread for VCU's CERT Program for this upcoming fall (2017), so I figured I'd start one for anyone who will be attending/applying this program, especially for questions about the program, roommates, who's pre-med/pre-dental, etc.
I was accepted a few weeks ago and have...
Both schools have similar size in terms of class, both are new environments for me and it looks like tuition is gonna be similar for both since I'm OOS and from what I've read Virginia has strict laws on how one can be re-classified as a Virginia resident.
Location - It's NY, which I...
I am fortunate enough and thankful to have some options here.
Some background on me: Canadian (don't qualify for scholarships except maybe at OUWB), have lived in big cities all my life and would prefer to continue to do so, and completely unsure of what specialty I want to do...
Hello! Currently deciding between these two schools and I'm having a bit of a hard time so I would love some input. I am currently a VA resident and have been accepted to VCU and JABSOM.
I just want to note that my family is from all over so Hawaii being far isn't too much of a factor.
Some background on me -- IS in Virginia (currently living in Richmond), but family all lives in New Jersey (which I take into consideration some). Really my decision right now is between VCU and GW. There are things I love about both schools, but for totally different reasons.
Any help would be much appreciated!

Facilities (new SOM building is currently under construction)

I'm on the fence kind of for both schools, VCU and UIC. I was accepted at VCU on Dec 1 but am waitlisted at UIC. I am OOS for both schools so the cost of attendance will be high regardless. I don't know much about Richmond area or either schools to be honest. I am trying to get off the...
Hello, to start off, I will hopefully be attending college this Fall. So far I've received admittance to some schools, in particular VCU. I am a California resident and also applied to UC schools, which I hear from in March. The point is, I want to know would it be worth it for me to choose VCU...
Hey everyone, I know that this is a thread that's been done many times before, but really want to hear as much input and perspectives as possible. First off, the total cost of school is incredibly expensive at Harvard. It totals to around 400,000 for all four years. Meanwhile, VCU totals to...
