I know that UNC-Greensboro (in NC) has an open enrollment policy. They say "as long as you're breathing, we will accept you" Also, I've come across a statement on this forum saying that Harvard has an open enrollment as well? Is this so??? My stats. are pretty pathetic, but I know that I definitely have much more potential, and I'd love to show this through a post- bacc.; Harvard would be nice :)

responses GREATLY appreciated :D

It's Harvard EXTENSION. Not as cool as actually getting a degree from harvard UNIVERSITY but I guess you could say you go to harvard and all your friends will think that your really super.

When grads of that school go to interviews, the name tag always just reads Harvard University. Some students I met got decent mileage out of this in intimidating others. :laugh:

(and FYI you won't get a degree from a postbac usually).

Just an FYI regarding the Harvard Extension program:

If you had an undergrad major that was anything other than science and you haven't taken the traditional pre-reqs, you may be eligible for a part of the Health Careers Program--where you'll earn a Diploma in Premedical Studies: http://www.extension.harvard.edu/2005-06/programs/hcp/diploma/

Not exactly a degree, but more like a "certificate" program. A good option for those of us who have business undergrad degrees :p

I agree. In this case, the name is the name. I spent a summer at Harvard Extension a long time ago, and no one ever knows the difference. The reality is that when I applied to undergrad and again when I applied to postbacc programs, I still had the advantage of having a transcript from Harvard show up at the admissions office. Pretty cool... who cares what program it was?
