Hi everyone! Like many of you, I'm having a really hard time making a decision. MGH was originally my top choice. I have always been really impressed by its clinical affiliations, on campus clinic, and of course its amazing reputation. However, I noticed that MGH requires about 20 more credits than the other schools and requires an extra semester of classes. Many of its semesters also require 6 or 7 classes as opposed to 3 like many of the other schools do. I wanted to know if you enjoyed your experience, and whether you found the work load to be overwhelming. Did you find these extra classes to be beneficial in your placements? I have heard some stories of other girls in the program who were mentally and emotionally drained by MGH's demanding workload. Although I love MGH, I can't help but wonder whether I would be slightly less stressed out at another program in Boston. If anyone is currently at MGH or went to MGH or had a friend at MGH, I was wondering what your opinion on this was. Is the workload crazy? Is it manageable? Did you like it? Thank you so much in advance!!
I just wanted to get this thread started in case any of us had questions! I'm also unable to attend the Welcome Day on April 9th, so I wanted to see what everyone had to say about it! Congratulations to everyone accepted! SUPER excited for this one.
I'll be moving from Montana to Massachusetts for grad school, and I'm trying to navigate the ins and outs of the health insurance scene. Is it possible to enroll through the Massachusetts Health Connector website and get coverage before I am physically in Massachusetts (so that I can make sure I have documentation in time to file the waiver paperwork with the university)? Also, the fees for the three schools I am considering are as follows (each for one full year): Northeastern: $2,159 Emerson: $2,795 Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions: $5,925 Is it just me, or is the fee at MGHIHP exorbitant? I even had someone else look at the website to make sure I was reading it properly. I have this fear of messing up the waiver process and getting stuck paying for their plan...yikes!!! I would welcome any advice about how best to handle this! Thank you!
