Personally, I would like to go more in dept on what to expect when entering these types of programs and more of there, benefits.

      All I can say for sure is that you need to make sure you stay on top of your academics. Even though lower GPAs are the minimum, the higher GPAs are what you need to aim for if you want a good chance of getting in. You also need to prepare to study A LOT.
