Did anyone who applied to Hogwarts School of Medicine hear anything back yet?

Getting kind of worried here...

Yeah, I did.

I was rejected presecondary, which was sort of obnoxious considering I did really well on my OWLs.

Maybe you should have joined the sweet volunteer program at St. Mungo's. Remember, EC's matter more than you think. ;)

As you can see from my location I'm there now. But as you are all muggles this conversation is a violation of the statute of secrecy. Please don't turn me in! Its a great school. You can heal all sorts of things without expensive meds or surgery!

I've been guaranteed future admission as an heir of Salazar Slytherin. Hogwarts produces incredible health professionals; you can fall 50 metres from a speeding broom in the sky and be healed within a day.

Something similar happened to this guy named Draco. They were doing cat dissection and he tried to dissect Professor McGonagal, who at the time was in her animagus state of a cat...But fortunatly she was okay. Draco on the otherhand was sent to azkaban.

I was accepted but I'm not sure if I want to go into Healing. I've had a good offer from Fred and George about a research position at Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes though that I might take.

I think you have all forgotten that it isn't your OWLs that allow for med school admission. THose just got you into the upper division pre-reqs. IT is really your NEWT scores that help you, they determine what you can do in your life.

:cool:

Oh ....and the MCAT. I am pretty sure that they require it.

If you can't get into Hogwarts this cycle, I've heard that there are many other reputable magical med schools abroad. It won't be the end of the world being an IMG (International Magical Graduate).

Beauxbatons has a good program, but I would stay away from Durmstrang, unless you're interested in a career in Dark Medicine, which involves learning how to plague your enemies with the foulest of illnesses. They don't do much healing at Durmstrang. And - duh - they aren't even ranked in US News :rolleyes:

Does anyone know if Hogwarts participates in any study abroad programs? If I get into a Muggle allopathic school, maybe I could do a rotation at Hogwarts? Do they accept transfers? How about their residency programs?

This is the coolest thread ever!!!

It's really unfortunate when the "rejects" have to rain on the hopeful's parade. There are other schools you can apply to -- don't let the rejection letters and being called a mudblood get to you man. Better luck next year.

I'm sorry, to get into Hogwarts Med, you need to either be (a) an extremely capable gunner (b) have relatives that have attended the school, (c) have a vault full of goblin gold or (d) been the target of a murder attempt while still a baby. They're very competitive.

The letter was signed by Dean Dubledore.

Oh well...I guess I have to continue my life as a Muggle.

That's rough, dude. I have heard that they're cutting back on this year's class size due to budget constraints. It's hard to fund all those med school seats while also fighting the Dark Lord and supporting the Order of the Phoenix. I wonder why they can't just transfigure some pebbles into gold pieces, though? I guess that would just cause inflation if everybody did that. Who knows with these medical schools... always have one excuse or another.

I'm sorry that those of you who will not be able to attend Hogwarts Med will miss out on Dr. Snape's pharmacology course; I hear he is quite the world-renowned expert, and it certainly complements Healing nicely.

He's not as great as some people would make it seem. He knows is stuff for sure but he really plays favorites. You have to suck up to him to get a good grade in the class. Plus it is seriously dark and depressing in the dungeon he teaches in.

By the way has anyone heard about this half-blood prince that got in to hogwarts. I'm really curious to know who he his.

What's pharm-a-col-ogy? Is that a muggle thing? Snape teaches POTIONS, which is soooo much more helpful for Healing. You obviously haven't read Hogwarts, A History.

I learned about pharmacology when i took my muggle history class. It's amazing what those muggles to do compensate for not having magic! For those of you still decided what to major in, Muggle history is great, and sure beats divinations! Plus, we all know you don't need to be a potions or care of magical creatures major to get into med school, as long as your NEWTS are good.

I'm just happy that I get the home team advantage when I apply next year to Hogwarts med, as a current student in the undergrad program. Shout out to all the Ravenclaws!

It can be quite difficult for muggles to get into Hogwarts. Some of the requirements that are needed to even be considered are: you must have some type of magical capabilities, good OWL and NEWT scores, 1 year of general potions and 1 year of organic potions. Don't forget about volunteer work and shadowing; St Mungo's offers opportunities for this. Also, as others have mentioned, don't forget that muggles can be considered under represented magicians (URM).

I've seen loads of muggles do well in our class, URM or not. Some wizard born students have done much worse. There was this guy though who aced his OWLs, had great volunteer experience, and a legacy but he spent so much time down at Hogsmeade that he failed all his courses. His parents tried getting him a remembrall so he would know to at least *show up* for his exams, but he forgot where he put it. :rolleyes:

Hmmm..... what platform were you on? I know 9 3/4 is for the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, but as for the Hogwarts School of Healing........ I want to say it's farther down, say platform 15 1/4.....??

Btw, has anyone interviewed at Hogwarts? Just wondering if it's relaxed or uptight or what. I mean, they don't give you Veritaserum to make sure you tell the truth, do they? I always wondered about that. Or maybe they don't interview at all and just send you an admissions letter?

The only schools that I've applied to are the muggle allopathic medical schools. Although I was educated in a magical school growing up, I have taken a strong affinity to muggles and was planning to live as an undercover magician in their world and study healing there. But who knows.......maybe I will give Hogwarts and the other healing schools another chance..........
