I've been lurking for quite a while and decided to finally post my stats! I've been exceptionally worried as I've spent the past while working full-time and fulfilling pre-requisites, and my experience hours are a little short (so short that I couldn't get a PT to write me a LoR). I'm hoping my academic record, extra-curriculars and post-bacc experience will boost my application! And if not, then now that all of my pre-requisites are completed I can spend the next year gaining more experience and apply for round two.

Pretty crazy, I just got the MGH acceptance which means I got in to every school I applied to (except for OSU, but I believe that is only because I turned down their interview). That kind of blows my mind. :wideyed: I think my age must have given me an advantage, so I hope this is strong encouragement for those of you considering a career change and worried that you're too far out of academia to get back in! :) Just go for it! You can do it!

Congrats! MGH is one of my top two favorite programs right now (the other one being UMiami). I have been accepted but idk how I can justify spending $152,000 on just tuition... I would love to attend but it is seeming unrealistic financially :( I also received a really good scholarship to Simmons but don’t know a whole lot about the program! Looking for some insight on that too

Thank you! I applied in the very beginning of November so it only took about a month and a half to hear back if that helps you gain an idea when you’ll get a decision. I received a phone call regarding my acceptance but she also said they shipped out a letter in the mail, I just haven’t received that yet. Good luck!!
