Hey all,

 

CASPA open up soon, so I thought I'd open up this topic.

 

I am a member of the class of '18 at Miami Shores. I interviewed at a few places last year that had the class above take care of communications related things, so I figured I'd follow suit. Also, for the accepted class into the Miami campus, one (or a few of us) will create your page so that we can answer any questions that you may have (Moving has been the most daunting issue for most of us).

 

I'll be here for any questions. So feel free to PM me :D Of course, take multiple views into account, not just mine.

 

Best of luck to everybody applying this cycle.

Thank you for starting this thread. 

 

I had a question as far as which campus to apply too. I know all three campuses are highly competitive, but is there one campus that is easier to get into over the rest?

I am definitely no expert but I can answer from my experiences.  I think this question is hard to answer because each campus has something a little different to offer.  Miami shores admits more students (52) compared to St.Croix (24) and St.Pete (24), although all campuses receive the same lectures.  Keep in mind though, Miami may be more sought after.  On the other hand, many students like the St.Croix campus because of location and the fact that it produces a lot of NHSC recipients.  St.Pete is also a sought after area and the class size is smaller so it may be more difficult to grab a spot.  In any sense, I think they are all equally difficult.

As Clarkc825 very well stated, each campus has their own strengths. If you're talking about requirements in terms of academically, I remember seeing that the other campuses (not miami) had stricter requirements. But don't let that draw you solely to Miami. The campus has the draw of being near the city and working with urban populations, which many find desirable. Also, rent is ridiculously high.

Definitely do a little soul searching and researching before you determine which campus fits your personality best. :)

I'll be applying later in summer as I have to finish some classes - might be too late but it's worth a shot!

Hey all,

 

I had a question regarding letters of recommendation. On the Barry web site it states that we need a letter of rec from academicians. I can not tell if this is suggested or required. I have 5 letters of rec and they are from PAs, doctors, and a supervisor. Below is the direct quote from the site. If anyone has any feedback regarding if this is a make or break whether we have to have a letter of rec from a academician or not please let me know.

 

"Submitted three letters of recommendation, (from clinical work supervisors or clinical coworkers, and academicians)"

 

Thanks!

Barry has been really good about responding to emails and calls.  It's probably best you contact them directly for an anser to that question IMO.

So this is common for many places you may or may not apply to. Just in case, academician is a professor from one of your classes that you took. Preferably a pre-req (which I presume you knew all this). Although you are certainly free to call Michelle and ask, my experience has been that if a school states something in writing/on their website (e.g. GPA minimum, pre-reqs, minimal HCE) then they will not settle for anything less than that.

 

Best of luck.
