    Genetic Counseling Fall 2019 Applicants

    Thought about it @taharah but really liked the counseling aspect of being a GC. Is that a path you are thinking of?

    Happy (almost) new year! Just curious, how do people respond when they ask about your future plans and you say you want to be a genetic counselor? I've had mostly people who don't know what that is, one person who told me that's a perfect job, and one person who told me I was crazy for not doing medical social work.

    Asking for a classmate: Any idea how the schools look at applicants with C/D/F grades in prerequisite courses?

    There is a GC program in Cardiff? I had no idea! Thanks for passing on the note. I've always wanted to study in the UK!! Does anyone know if there would be any difference in a MS vs a Canadian or English MSc if you want to come back to work in the US?

    I hope everyone's Fall is getting off to a nice start! As people plan their apps, I just wanted to include this link: Accredited Programs: http://gceducation.org/Pages/Accredited-Programs.aspx Where are people planning to apply

    @HilmKayla does that mean they are accepting for this fall (2018) and will graduate in 2020 or won't accept anyone until fall 2020?

    Very interesting! I did some googling and found https://gmi.ucsf.edu/ucsf-programs/ which mentions a UCSF program but the link is broken...

    @HilmKayla, that is very disconcerting as CA does not have many programs. What have you heard??

    Hey all, how big of a role would you say your STEM grades played? Bio/Chem are definitely not my strong points. I know some schools have a 3.0 or B cutoff, but I was just curious. Was anyone accepted this round with a 2.8-3.1 STEM/BCMP gpa?

    Hi all, thank you for answering my questions as I get ready to be you next year! I'm just fishing for information. Has anyone heard anything on the interview trail about the following new programs? UC Davis, UCLA, UCSF, University of Washington, Washington State, or any other west coast schools? (not to disparage the east coast, I love you all but need to be in a certain geographic region for family reasons)
