    Ryan, Technically, yes, it is a "post-bac program."

    I am not a big fan of post-bac programs but MEDPATH is definitely not the typical program. Some of it's highlights include, the post-bac tuition being waved, and a guaranteed spot in the following class considering you do decently well on the MCAT and coursework. Also the courses you take are not all pre-req course work required for entering med school, but courses like histology, medical terminology, and anatomy - courses you will likely face while in med school.


    Considering all of the above you must interview for the program, after recommendation from the admissions committee of course. Where recommendation is usually reserved for URM's and those wishing to serve such communities (hope that answers your question jmart)...

    good to see pple on here,

    FYI for those who interviewed: I decided to go ahead and apply for graduate on-campus housing cuz i figured its the easiest way to make the move(which for me is a long one since im from tx) so i filled out the online graduate housing application(u can find it by searching the main university home page). its not just dorms that are available. there are 1,2 bedroom apartments also. i emailed the housing office and they said that they dont mail out leases till the last wk of May so theres still time to apply but its first come first serve.

    just something u might want to think about,

    Also, if anyone has undergraduate stafford loans they should be able to get deffered according to financial aid office rep i emailed


    good luck to those of who waiting on letters!!!

    What's URM, so you need to apply, get an interview and then be invited?

    Thanks for the info Martinez! :thumbup:

    URM = Under Represented Minority.

    So let's try this again Jmart...

    1) Submit AMCAS and select "OSU" as one of your designated medical schools.

    2) Be recommended by the admissions committee for the MEDPATH program.

    3) Turn in a supplemental form to OSU for MEDPATH (essays and such).

    4) If invited, go interview on campus.

    5) Wait for a decision letter that hopefully will not leave you in tears... :(

    So you don't need and interview to get into that program. I want to get into that so bad but I don't know how since you just have to be lucky it seems. I'm def not an URM

    Whats up everyone. I was accepted into the program and live in Cincinnati, currently. I can definitely help out anyone who has questions about the city and program. Please let me know if anyone needs help.

    Take care

    LOL.. All I can say is be ready. The snow in Columbus has not been that bad in the past years, but it does get cold. I would plan on the cold being here as around the second week of November. I dont know your threshold for cold weather but that would be my guess. I would say mid 40's from that point on, until March. I guess everyone is slow on catchin on to this communication thing. Did you interview on Monday or Wednesday? I hope people get with the program about communicating. Let me know whatever else I can help you with. I plan on having my apartment in August, but will not be living there every day until Sept.

    I thought I remembered you. I interviewed on wednesday. I went to Holy Cross in Mass. I've been out of school for a couple of years now working and deciding on what to do with my life. This was my first option because I knew that I needed book work before entering school. I'm 24 years old. Cincy is about an hour and 1/2 drive from Columbus. I am still in the process of finding an apartment. I'll probably end up taking over one of my friends' places. When I find out where, I'll let you know. All the financial aid info and other forms are being finished up this week. I'll let you know when I hear something as well. Enjoy freedom, it will be coming to a close soon. Keep me posted on any updates.

    I'm still waiting on the next person to hop aboard. This program is the best way to start if you need extra work or a need to focus on study habits. Anyway, I hope everyone is just as up beat as us. It will be a great year.
    Take care.

    Whats up antonio?
    I'm going to call the office about this one. But maybe you can get back with me sooner. Did you just fill out the undergrad fasfa form? I know that its still considered an undergrad program. Just wondering... Thanks

    How's it going fellow MEDPATHers? I called the financial aid office on Tuesday May 28. One of the guys in the office said that they would be sending the fin aid verification form out to those who have submitted their FAFSA to Ohio State in the next few weeks. And that it will only take a few days for them to give you an award letter once they receive those completed forms. You should just call to ask if they have received your FAFSA application. Be sure to tell them that you are a Medpath student.

    yea, financial aid just emailed me back and verified that they recieved my fafsa, i should recieve awards in early june. its a good idea to check with them to make sure they got your application.....and theres only one type of fafsa, just make sure you mark that youve received bachelors degree(which sux cuz that eliminates us from receiving grants

    :idea:Check the acceptance letter. I am positive they provide the academic calendar that we are using. I know for a fact that we are still on the undergraduate academic calendar. So if you find it, verify your dates there..
    In the meantime, take it light.

    Yes, I responded a while ago. You may want to hurry on that one. She is getting ready to turn over everything to kelly price. It does not seem like a big deal, because the review will allow you to see where you are, but it is helpful because test scores might not always show your strengths and weakeness.
    Can you please email me the form? I think I received it in the mail, but I have been on vacation and have not opened the package that OSU sent..

    peace

    Dont worry about it. I have completed the form and actaully talked to the financial aid office. I can talk to you more about that on the phone or through email, but I dont want to discuss finances over the internet
