Odds of Getting In

The odds of getting in are pretty good. Employment in the field is expected to increase. Unless you live in a cave (with a good Internet connection), you may have noticed that Americans have progressively become more health conscious in the last decade. For dietitians, an informed patient makes their job easier when they are prescribing a meal plan. Instead of getting a blank look when they mention trans fats, they get at least a shrug of the shoulders and a response like, "Yeah, I know margarine, packaged foods, soups, and fast foods aren’t good." Take success when you can.
