I applied Jan 22. I rushed mailed everything....transcripts and application. They sent me a letter confirming that I had everything on Feb 5th. They said that they will be processing my application. Then they sent me an invitation via mail just yesterday. Their response was actually pretty fast. My Gpa is 3.4. I have a BS.

When did you apply? They should be sending you confirmations when they receive your application.

There is a thread on MCP Worcester, a very old one like last November. You should search for it, people talked about the essay topics, how to fly there and how to use the subway connection... I wrote a detailed schedule of the interview on there also. You should plan ahead as the travelling might be a problem. Good luck!

First- fly in at least the day before! That way you won't be rushed the day of. There is a hilton and a crowne plaza hotel with two blocks of here. When I came I stayed at a hostel in Boston an commuted in the day of my interview. I also stayed a couple of days so I could see some of the sites before I headed home in case I didn't move here. Also- If you decided to stay in worcester you have three airports you could fly into: Boston, Providence, or Manchester. Just PM me if you have more questions.
Good Luck

You quoted his post but did you read the OP..marine123 states they have to fly, which should tell you he's not from MA, and then mentions California...CMON. I bet you're just nervous b/c you haven't heard from MCP yet but you will eventually, probably real soon.

By the way marine123, there is no H in Worcester, common mistake for people outside New England, just don't pronounce it like that at the interview, haha, won't sound so good. Goodluck though, mine was pretty laid back, they made me feel completely comfortable.

Hey all,

I applied to MCP - Worcester in September, got my interview in November, and was accepted 2 days after the interview.

The Crowne Plaza two blocks away was a decent hotel but whole area is completely deserted. Def not the city life I'm used to in North NJ.

Anyone else here back from MCP-Worcester? A girl from my same undergrad university applied in December and she hasn't heard back at all yet either.

I'm from Georgia, my interview is March 7 (late morning). I'm flying airtran from ATL to Boston March 6, renting from enterprise (cheapest of all rentals) then driving 50 miles to the La Quinta in Auburn ($53 a night), which is 10 minutes away from the school. After the interview, fly back to ATL.
I have a BS and my overall GPA is 3.4 and so is my science and math GPA. I have 1 year Tech Experience, Habitat for Humanity, Helped a church group for relief trip to Africa. I have great recommendations from my advisor and pharmacists.

Hey TBS5280, I did the same thing for my interview. Flew into Boston, rented a car from enterprise, and stayed at the La Quinta in Auburn...kinda odd. Let me know if you have questions about your trip...seeing how I did the same thing. There is a mall right next to the hotel. Its a good place to go eat or if you need any last minute things before the interview.

Congrats. Hopefully I'll see you there. I know 2 people currently P1 and P2 at the school. They are like me and you, both with BS degrees. I've heard good things. You get out of it, what you put in.

Heads up.. The priority filing date for FAFSA application for MCPHS is 3/15/2007. Good luck

Congrats icant. See you there.

For those accepted to MCPHS-Worcester. Do you know when we will receive a packet that would contain the orientation info, admission papers, financial documents...etc.

I received the health packet last week and plan on taking care of that soon, but I was just wondering about the aforementioned documents.

Does anyone know what MCPHS does about health insurance and how much it costs a year or semester?

I had my interview two days ago and it went very well even though the students were off for springbreak. The faculty memeber was very nice and the school is pretty new looking. I did get lost three times while traveling, but got on the right rode pretty quickly. It was surely cold there.
