Does anyone know if the academic calendar has been published yet, or when it will be?
Does MCG email you when they have their financial package put together or am I supposed to find it somewhere?
I made some calls about this today. I was told that the calendar is not yet finalized; they said it should be finished around the end of May. Orientation is 2-3 August and the first day of classes is 6 August. We will all have the same classes and test schedule, so we'll know when our test days are going to be for the whole year.
I also contacted the financial aid counselor for the medical school by email asking about the timeline for financial aid award announcements. This was her reply:
"We won't start processing financial aid for incoming students until May/June timeframe. We have not received the final tuition and fee amounts yet, but expect to have them by the end of the month. We are also waiting on our Associate Director to set up our system to receive 12/13 documents. Please make sure to have your 12-13 FAFSA, GHSU Financial Aid Application and Direct Lending Entrance Counseling completed, so we can process your application.
What I can tell you is that the max a 1st year med student can receive in Unsubsidized aid is $42,722. Subsidized aid has been eliminated by the federal gov't for all professional students."
There's a financial aid application? Any idea where this application is located?
Don't bother with this. I called and was told that FA was not sent out till this summer. WTH??? They said that COA wouldn't be available till then.
As I understand it, today is the day that med schools find out who has multiple acceptances and can then begin pressuring them to settle on one school. So, basically today is the beginning of an approximately month-long period of accelerated waitlist activity, but it will take a bit to get moving.Hey, do you guys think there will be some bulk movement off the waitlist around this time? I was under that impression but haven't seen a sign of it yet, at least not on here. Fingers crossed!
