    I wasn't able to tune in to the OSU webinar today, can anyone tell me if they confirmed the tuition reduction and if they gave any other financial info?

    Michigan sent out an email that contained financial information and also if they would rank us. It would be cool if all programs could let us know..

    If they say we are registered for that quarter i assume that means we would have to pay! Thats something i may ask a current student about

    I didn't realize it was that much! I know they're planning tor reduce it by $5,000 but still... it's a lot. But i have also heard that it's not too hard to get in state tuition for the second year, so I have been taking that into account when calculating for Ohio schools

    according to their pre-interview packet, the financial aid part says students are registered for 6 quarters at around $18,000 each. Students can get $18,000 remitted overall if they work but that still leaves them with a 90k tuition..more expensive than stanford!

    I was calculating tuitions the other day and NW's program came out to around $109,000!! I was blown away. Are they the most expensive program in the US or do you guys know of one that is more?

    Does anyone know anything about UCF's GC program? As in, do a lot of people apply to it and how do they sit for boards if they're not accredited?

    I know someone asked about graduate scholarships/funding earlier and Northwestern had this database on their site so I thought it might be helpful! A lot of them require you to be going into a specific field though /: http://staff.lib.msu.edu/harris23/grants/3gradinf.htm

    Thanks for sharing this info! One thing to keep in mind though is that each school interviews and accepts a different amount, for example Ohio State interviews about 72 people for 10 spots but Cincy interviews about 48 for 12 spots, so the chances of getting in are higher there. I've been calculating my chances for each school that way and it looks like theres a ~13%-25% range of being accepted at the places i've interviewed at but because they're all different i'm not sure how to calculate my chance of being accepted in general like how you did above /:

    No but last year they sent rejections around March 1, so i'm just waiting for that lol. I think they already sent out all their interviews and i don't see anyone turning them down...

    At the same time, if you were from the midwest and travelled all the way to the west coast for an interview wouldn't it show that their offer meant a lot? I think the fact that we take time off work/school and spend money to go to these interviews already shows that they mean a lot! If I'm not at least 80% interested, I know I won't take off time and spend money to go.

    I actually have seen some of them write the number down though... i don't disclose the schools and if they ask i just say in the midwest, but i've even been prompted to name the schools before. I know it's probably not a big deal in the grand scheme of things but i'm just not a fan of those questions

    One question i've gotten at some interviews is how many interview invites i've gotten overall. The question makes me weary, because 1) I don't want schools to think i'm all over the place and just applied to a bunch of places at random and 2) i'm anxious about them having preference for students who only applied to a couple schools and got 1 or 2 interviews. I know I'm probably overthinking this but does anyone have any idea what the purpose of that question is? I always make sure to follow it up by talking about why I applied to their particular program and how much i love it, but i personally just don't like being asked about how many invites i have..anyone else have this experience?

    i don't think many people apply casually..applications are expensive as is the GRE so i'm assuming that almost everyone who applies at least looks at program websites and sees that most schools only accept around 8-12 students/year. I feel like most people posting on here are just looking for a community of people we can relate to, because at least in my case i don't have any close friends or colleagues who are also applying for this program and i'm sure this is quite common. So in my opinion, it's hard to gauge how qualified people are based on whether or not they're posting on this forum. At the end of the day, qualified or not, many of us are just trying to connect with others and help each other out Good luck to your person who is applying! I also know many people accepted into programs who only got one interview so # of invites doesn't mean much at the end of the day, just how well you connect with the interviewers at those interviews.

    Wow congrats!! Did they give you a date or ask you to rank? I'm wondering if this will be my first rejection lol
  17. hfj23

    Genetic Counseling Fall 2018 Applicants

    they gave us a bunch of dates and we put in a doodlepoll which ones work. Maybe dates that don't fill will be sent out to those on a waitlist? I'm not sure but anything is possible!

    Last year people didn't hear from them until Feb 22 according to the results page so there's still time! I feel like they don't interview many people though because there are barely any results for them

    Genetic Counseling Fall 2018 Applicants

    No but because i have already received a bunch of interviews closer to home, VCU is not one of my top choices anyways and i know there are others who would rank them high so i want them to get it instead
  20. hfj23

    Genetic Counseling Fall 2018 Applicants

    Ended up declining the VCU interview offer even though it was really hard to It's just too far away and the date they gave me was a thursday, which was difficult bc it would mean missing wednesday and being tired friday. I hope one of you end up getting my spot if you are on a waitlist!

    Genetic Counseling Fall 2018 Applicants

    @Blizzard ohh ok that makes sense i thought maybe you were scheduling both your interviews for the same week. That sounds tough! I would say go for the friday interviews if you have a choice that way you can take your time getting back (unless you work weekends). Some programs end the day with a dinner that isn't required and you can leave early to catch a flight or get in a little late if they start with breakfast. I'm sure there are other current applicants who work as advisors and might give better advice than me. One of the current students at Wayne state actually used to be my advisor so now i'm wondering how she did it bc she was always booked!
  22. hfj23

    Genetic Counseling Fall 2018 Applicants

    I have driven/am planning to drive to all interviews so scheduling flights isn't a problem but this is exhausting (not complaining though lol). I am still a student and am lucky enough to work at my university so my supervisors have been totally understanding about grad school interviews. Is there a reason you are taking a whole week off? My interviews are all either monday or friday and i prefer the friday ones because at least i get to rest over the weekend. I had a monday one yesterday that ended in the evening so i'm dying at school today bc i got home late!

    Genetic Counseling Fall 2018 Applicants

    You're right and thank you for this! I think just knowing that other people got to rank their dates while i am just being given what's available is a bit discouraging and probably a downside of being on a forum. I have unexpectedly received a lot of interviews closer to home, which is why I am even debating whether interviewing at VCU is worth it due to travel expenses. I'll post my decision on here so hopefully someone who is waitlisted will know they still have a chance!

    Genetic Counseling Fall 2018 Applicants

    I just got invited by VCU! They only gave me one available date so i'm guessing i was on a waitlist? I am thinking of declining it bc richmond is so far away from me and i'm clearly not their top choice but it's so hard! It sucks that schools don't cover cost of travel /:

    Congrats! Did they just give you a date or did they ask you to rank them?
