    Hey guys! Didn't see a thread for this application cycle yet. Anyone applying/planning to apply for this program? I am gathering my application materials at the moment. Commentary from current students is welcomed as well! :)

      I'm currently in the 2nd year of the program. You can DM me if you have specific questions.
      How long does it take for an acceptance? I just got an email back from Druitt today saying thanks for the online interview. Also, I got a D in Organic Chem 2( my teacher was doing too much), and an overall 9 on the MCAT. What are my chances do u think/ I have like 10 years of direct care, I'm a non trad student, massive amounts of shadowing, and research. My gpa is a 2.56 and this is the ONLY program i have and will apply to...

        Hey y'all,

        I just received an e-mail this week saying that my application is complete and that it is now being reviewed. How long does it take before you hear any correspondence about an interview?

          I received an online interview on 11.25.15. Never received an email stating that my app was complete so I'm assuming it is since they gave me the online interview. I received the online interview about 2-3 weeks after submitting all of my materials.


          They may have sent me an e-mail saying that my application was complete, because I contacted them to make sure all of my materials had been received. I was also a little worried about sending all my material at different times.

            I already did my interview about 3 weeks ago . I actually got it the next day after I submitted my completed application. I just wish they would hurry up and respond so I can figure out what steps I need to take. We don't have money to apply to every school or grad program, and due dates are right around the corner so... Yeah I'm gonna need for them to make acceptance or denials Asap either way....

                have you heard anything back yet?
                No, unfortunately the only correspondence I've gotten is the e-mail stating that they have all of my materials, but I have an acceptance to another program thus far. Have you called to ask when they will make decisions? They probably won't be back in the office until after the holiday. One of the other programs that I applied to sent an email stating that no admissions decisions would be made during the holiday vacation, and they would resume reviewing applications on Jan 4.

                  yeah me either. I actually called today and was told Druitt was in a faculty meeting a majority, if not the entire day. Maybe this means he and his panel are making acceptance, denials, or waitlisted. Do you guys know of any scholarships they have for women?- BTW: this is approx my 4th week......

                    For those who applied, has anyone here been accepted into the program yet for Fall 2016 entering class? And are there any reasonable accommodation ($$) around the campus area for new students who are not from the area? Any responds will highly be appreciated. Thanks guys

                      Did you get accepted into the Hampton Medical Science Program? If yes what were some of the things I need to prepare for as I have my on-campus interview tomorrow

                        Hello,

                        How did your on-campus interview go? I hope it went well! I just submitted my online application for the Medical Science program recently. So I'm trying to get as much insight on the application process as I possibly can.

                          If accepted, make sure to hit up the office of residence life for graduate assistantship opportunities. It is something you may be interested in to help finance.

                            Hello,

                            How did your on-campus interview go? I hope it went well! I just submitted my online application for the Medical Science program recently. So I'm trying to get as much insight on the application process as I possibly can.
                            Sorry for the delayed response, I was waiting for a decision after my interview before I made any comments and I just received my admission letter. I have been accepted into Hampton University Medical Science Masters Program for this Fall 2016 entering Class AND I'm soooo going, lol.
                            Now to answer your question "AutumnRose", the interview was very relaxed, low key, this was one of the best interview I've had so far, compared to other programs as there was no pressure at all. The interviewers actually took the time to get to know me which enabled me to relax (an important factor for some of us). I also made it a point to go to the school during the graduate college day a few months ago and that helped since I got the chance to talk to some of the Medical Science Students, the Cordinator and a few members of the school administration; THIS WAS HUGE SINCE ONE OF MY INTERVIEWERS HAPPENED TO BE ONE OF THE STUDENTS I SPOKE TO EARLIER DURING MY VISIT, SO THAT HELPED IN GETTING ME RELAXED DURING MY INTERVIEW. I believe in every program and also in life, there are several others competing for the same thing we all are, so sometimes taking steps to make sure you stand out of the crowd is an important key in ensuring success. This could be just calling the office, or email, or visit the school when events like this are being organized (even though I am aware that lots of people live very far and cannot make such trips): MAKE THE PEOPLE WHO WILL MAKE THE FINAL DECISION ON YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND ALSO LET THEM KNOW THAT YOU REALLY REALLY REALLY WANT THIS; YOU WILL BE SURPRISED HOW MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE THIS CAN MAKE.

                            Let me know if you have any other questions. Good luck on your application and the best of luck in your endeavors.

                                        I believe they put the people they want to interview on an interview list to come to hampton for formal interviews now. I received a letter for a formal interview

                                          For me it was, I applied..then got an online interview the next day after my application. I had 24 hours to turn that in, and about a week later I was asked to come for a formal in person interview. I was notified of my decision about 2 weeks after my in person interview! Hope that helps!

                                            I will also say though, the timeline is so crazy for each individual...some
                                            Of those that interviewed in my group heard before me and then some after me. I think the graduate office is just swamped!

                                              Hey everyone! i applied to the program at Hampton a little over a month ago, still waiting for them to process my information. I was wondering, has anyone received a financial aid award letter as of yet? Is the tuition covered by your funds? What is the living situation like on campus? Are you all getting apartments in that area?

                                              Your message may be considered spam for the following reasons:

                                              1. Your new thread title is very short, and likely is unhelpful.
                                              2. Your reply is very short and likely does not add anything to the thread.
                                              3. Your reply is very long and likely does not add anything to the thread.
                                              4. It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose.
                                              5. Your message is mostly quotes or spoilers.
                                              6. Your reply has occurred very quickly after a previous reply and likely does not add anything to the thread.
