Oh no!!! thank you SBP for finding that info out. This is disheartening.

I second Vkaps question about why are they waiting until 2019

I spoke to Laura today and was informed that they won't be on this upcoming PA cycle because they are in the process of re-applying for accreditation and it is a lengthy process. Hence they anticipate to be on 2018-2019 cycle.

well this completely sucks. They seem to have taken down the PA portion on their website.

I'm rather disappointed to have to find out most of this information on the forum and not in an email from the school and program staff to keep all accepted and waitlisted students in the loop.

FuturePA1575: I was thinking the same thing. Very disappointing the schools approach to this whole situation.

Hm36 and Sbp: thank you inquiring that information!

Don't give up hope everyone! The cycle opens up through CASPA April 27th. Keep applying and the right program will open up. Praying for everyone!

I'm kinda disappointed we didn't really get to know each other and become classmates...

 

This is certainly a tough speedbump for all of us. Best of luck to everyone on the journey

The cohort will start in the summer of 2018. I think what went on was that when you spoke with Laura they were still trying to work out the process with the accrediatation body and board members. I am so grateful that our seats are still guaranteed and that the faculty and staff are working very hard to make this happen! 😊

I'm curious to see if we would have to apply again, or if the CASPA window will even open up again this summer for new applicants.

 

Still, theres a light at the end of the tunnel

Vkap: I'm curious also...they didn't specify any specific steps that we would have to take, if any.

Well I'm assuming we don't have to take any steps since we already applied, interviewed and met all the requirements, but I think the best thing we can do right now is just wait. I'm sure they are going to be sending us more information later, since honestly they were able to get the accrediation process to happen in a year instead of two so that says a lot about the commitment that they are putting in the program and the students in my opinion 😊

Okay guys, not sure if this is the best place to ask, but I need some advice. Even though ULV did offer us seats for Summer 2018 (assuming they get accredited), I am choosing to reapply to schools for this new application cycle anyways. What would be the best way to re-ask for a letter of recommendation from a professor? I feel weird asking again and saying the school I chose to attend did not receive accreditation :/

Anyone have any advice on the best way to ask for a letter again?

There's absolutely nothing weird about it. I'm in your boat as well. No professor will think less of you for it. It happens, it's a speed bump, and many PA's/professionals understand that things may come up on the road to your end goal.
