    Genetic Counseling Fall 2018 Applicants

    I think they play a big role. I had a major GPA of 2.68 when I applied last cycle (and didn’t get in). I did poorly in ochem and Biochem as well. To offset that, I took a neurogenetics class through cincinnati and I retook Biochem this cycle (got an A, better than my previous C). Factoring just Biochem in, it raises my gpa to a 2.77 I believe. My overall GPA is only decent at 3.36 (last 60 units around a 3.8 though). But I do believe retaking the course showed initiative and that I still have that upward momentum I ended college with. But prerequisite grades can be offsetted with many things as long as you have at least a C in them. I think my experience helped do that more so than retaking Biochem did. So you can get accepted with around what you posted, just make sure you have something that makes you stand out or shows that you can do upper level science classes. Feel free to PM me if you have more specific questions!

    @MaybeGradschool? I'm a "not right out of undergraduate applicant," (but only by a year). I remember when requesting feedback last year, CSUStan did say that me not being right out of undergrad is a positive for my application. I believe UCI and Augustana stated similar things as well.

    Exactly. When I was told I'd be ranked by a program, I took it as an automatic waitlist position at a minimum.

    Whoops read this wrong originally. I hadn't thought about that. I definitely could share the link with all the program directors though. Do you think it'd be useful to them?

    I just stated what I heard another candidate say. It doesn't make sense to me that they'd change that aspect. I agree with sunT's post below for someone to reach out to clarify.

    YES! If you withdraw you are still able to participate in the post match process. There has been some debate on whether those who didn’t get interviews (and thus have to withdraw from the match because of it) are able to participate. One program director said that it is true... which would be a change from the previous post match process where you had to have at least one interview to participate. Passed that, everything else I know about the process is from the match site.

    Final reminder: If you'd like to fill out the following survey, please do so by tomorrow night! After which, I will not be accepting submissions. If you are interested in seeing the current results, submit a BLANK form. It will give you the option to see the results at the end. I've received about 80 responses so far, so there is a good amount of data to look at. https://goo.gl/forms/EqvqlklbLzEDKswx1

    That is correct. If one of the programs you interviewed at had open spots, it would indicate that you were not on their match ranking list. This means they flat out rejected you unfortunately :/

    If you are interested in sharing your responses, please submit below! I have left the responses able to edit as I know not all interviews have finished, so if you want to fill out now based on how you feel, you can always go back and edit after you've completed interviews. I will share the results once there are a decent amount of responses. Please be honest, but no trash talking programs (or individuals within the program!), I will delete those responses. It is completely anonymous though! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfveStRW-jk2FIeM0qE6w9L7gxkTFrdCP9KuZJwnjZjG1wZOA/viewform?usp=sf_link

    Just got offered an interview at Arizona! They are only interviewing Arizona residents until after Match. At which point, they’ll offer additional interviews. I’m so excited!

    From what I've seen online, they haven't yet applied for accreditation and therefore cannot take students. They have information up and an article said they had plans to take their first class for Fall 2018, but they aren't active and haven't seen submitted to the board to get accreditation. Their timeline is likely pushed back for one reason or another.

    Samesies <3 It's okay. I couldn't justify the cost of living there anyway.
