    I figured Yale and Penn and Harvard get their 15 minutes of fame, but I'm still waiting impatiently on news from the Hairsalon University of Medicine of Appalachia County. Man, they said they'd review my application last week, when I applied, and they only had 4 applicants this year for 115 spots. Why haven't I heard yet? I'm bitin' my tooth!

    Will, do you have good stats, ec's, HCAT's(Hair college admittance test)? HUMAP is a highly competitive school and I hope you applied to other, lower tier schools, such as Barbazon modeling and medical school. You may want to write a letter of intent and inform them that they are still your first choice. And just remember if you don't get in this year you can always work on your stats and reapply next year.
    Good Luck! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    I am lacking a few of their requirements for admission, and I think that might hurt me most. Notably, I'm lacking experience in automotive repair, I don't have my Commercial Driver's License, and I haven't mastered straight razor shaving. They said I can make up those credits at DeVry and the New England Tractor Trailer Training School, but I hope I don't have to. I also don't have the word "Curtis" or "Clem" anywhere in my name, and that might hurt me. Praying for the best... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

    I am afraid you may have to either apply to a school of Osteopathic Hairstyling or go on to get your Masters to make bring up your skills of straight razor and truck driving. To stand out in the applicant pool you may want to apply to the dual muffler/Magician program found here <a href="http://www.magic.org.za/" target="_blank">School of Magic/Mufflers</a>
    Once again good luck and don't give up!

    HUMAP is slacking. UKFCSOM is slacking. At least I've gotten the strip-o-gram from Hollywood Upstairs Medical School that tells me application is being doused in gin and sucked for acceptability.

    Well, since I am older and don't qualify for the Univ. of Florida Gator Rasslin' School O' Medicine and Reptile Surgery, I will merely apply to the Herbert Hoover School of ReThink and Surgery for the Paranoid.

    THE William Shatner School........ of...Medicine recently asked me to submitmylatest...Mind Meld...sothatI could be interviewed soon. (body jerking motion added)

    I'd hate to break character, but that William Shatner joke is actually very funny.

    You shudda applied for the combined degree in hair and the MA [manicured arts]. It's a new degreed program at HSUMAC and until the word gets out, you stand a good chance of being accepted there. Just a thought. Hope this helps. :)

    WTF! :confused: I just checked my status on the HSUMAC status check website, <a href="http://www.scissorsnsyringes.edu/status/app02/MD.htm," target="_blank">www.hsumac.edu/status/app02/MD.htm,</a> and it's just an advertisement for Biff Harrison's Family Restaurant, RT 8, Vixen's Bluff, West Virginia. WTF is that supposed to mean? Am I in or what??? I bet my C in Hairgo is killing me.... :rolleyes:

    Which is better: HSUMAC or the WSS........of...M? I've been accepted at both without even interviewing, and I'm having a hard time deciding between them. Any thoughts would be most appreciated.

    The pass rate of the USHSLE Step I is 18% at HSUMAC, and only 11.4% at the W..SS...of....M, so you might want to take that into consideration. Plus, the HSUMAC has a Californian in the third year class whereas the WS....Sof....M is all West Virginians. Personally, I like the HSUMAC campus better because it has trees and a pony, but the W..S....S..ofM hosts a Star Trek convention each year on August 19th, right before classes begin... Tough choice, and congrats on your recent success(es) <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />

    Thanks, willjmarks. Actually, it just occurred to me that I've been accepted at both without even applying, but who's counting?

    i was just wondering if a 0.8 GPA and a 12 HCAT (4,4,4) is enough to get me in to HUMAP? i applied and even though i stared at their averages for four days straight i want to ask again, just to make sure. i called the office of admissions and spoke to the director of admissions, Dr. King (Don) and he said that they will be interviewing well into next may, is this true?

    Dude, you will never get in with those numbers. I highly suggest you do a search for some of the Hairsalon osteo schools and consider getting a Doctor of Osteopathic Hairsalonetry (DOH!)

    It really is about the whole head, and not just the hairstyle, isn't it?

    p.s. there is always podiatry

    willy j,

    i would reccomend doing some ECs around the issue of GLH Formula Number 9 by RonCo Inc. You know, the spray-on hair formula developed by Ron Popiel. it's a really advanced discipline, and it should make you stand out to the adcom. talk about skill! it takes a lot to make dark spray paint look like hair--having such developed wrist precision alone should set you apart from less motivated candidates.

    also, you might think about changing the "j" in your name to "wayne." willy wayne is a great name for a Hairsalon University graduate--one that they'll be really proud to list on their alumni lists.

    just my 2 cents...

    OMG I just soiled myself!!! <img border="0" alt="[Wowie]" title="" src="graemlins/wowie.gif" /> I got a phone call at 2:30 this morning, as in AM, from the Dean of Admissions at the 'MAC! I've been waiting diligently by my phone at least since 7 or 8 PM for the call, and I got it.... he said:
    "Ha is William dehre? Ha William. This are Dean of Salonometry of HSUMAC, Dean, heheh, Dean umm Wright. I'm like just calling to tell ye that ye've applied to the HSUMAC, that there finest of Hairsalon/Medical combahned progrims. Congratulations, yer in the progrim, that is, that there ye come on fly down here south and buy us a coupla more bourbons, and yer in. Ah promise. Come on, come on."
    Should I go for the "second look weekend"? Or was it just one of you... I bet it was. You jerks! All that is serious in my life is just a joke to you all. Sorry, I can't get into an accredited program- so sue me. If one of you called me last night and claimed to be Dean Wright, tell me now so I don't waste another $500 on transport and $15 for hotels in West Viriginia! Who did it?
