i see a pandemic of epidemiologists in this forum but i've found only a passing mention of genetics counselling. is there anyone here who knows something about genetics counselling? i'm interested in u pitt's parogram, it's a 2 year MPH program and as a chemistry major i both know of and respect pitt's chemistry department and their research programs, but the MPH's stated application requirements for this program seem pretty light. i'm wondering where i can find info about the actually stats of admitted applicants -- the site asks for things like BS, QPA3.0+, coursework in biochem, genetics, calculus, statistics, psych and 70%ile + in GRE sections, asking only for some volunteer experience in a genetic counselling setting -- so I'm wondering if this is just the stated minimum and actual applicants have a much heavier-weight resume. Or if the program is kind of fluffy. Are genetic counsellor programs fluffy? I've been doing a lot of reading on the internet about genetics counselling programs in general and i can't get a sense of how much you are a scientist who counsels or whether you are really kind of a techician.
