  1. Past hour
  2. Congrats to those recently accepted! Just received an interview invite for 8/9!! So excited! I got the confirmation email from Marist 6/22 and they also called me on 7/2 and told me I would receive an update in 4 - 6 weeks. Its been less than 3, I was not expecting anything so soon!
  3. Today I received a confirmation that my application was received. Submitted it June 15th
  4. I can't tell you what to do. The only way to know if taking the GRE will be worth it is by doing it and seeing what happens. Remember that minimums, both for GPA, GRE, and HCE/PCE, are just that, minimums. You are up against students with better grades, more HCE/PCE, have already taken the GRE, and also have amazing personal statements. Only you can decide what is right for you. While your effort is commendable, you are by no means a sure thing. You could certainly keep working to get more HCE/PCE, take more classes and raise your GPA and get a good GRE score....but only you can decide if the time and money required to invest in that is worth it.

  10. So I went to the SMU website and viewed their accreditation status from the June 2019 meeting and the ARC-PA placed SMU PA Program on Accreditation-Probation status until its next review in June 2021. I don't see anymore information in regards to the Fresno expansion and this may be why. There's also a message from the Program Chair, Mike DeRosa, PhD: "The Samuel Merritt University Master Physician Assistant Program has a 20-year history of excellence in PA education. During our most recent self-study and accreditation review process, issues pertaining to the clinical year and how we collect and analyze data regarding our students’ supervised clinical practice experiences were raised. These issues, as well as a few logistical and administrative program issues, led to a decision to place the SMU PA Program on a probationary accreditation status. This is a temporary designation allowing the program time to comply fully with accreditation standards and expectations. The SMU PA Program remains an accredited program during its probationary period. The SMU PA Program immediately engaged the resources of the University which is fully supportive of our efforts. Together the Department faculty and University administration will work to address issues raised in this review and restore our accreditation status to “Accreditation-Continuing.” We have every confidence that we will achieve this outcome together. In the interim, the SMU PA Program remains a strong, experienced program and faculty and will continue our efforts to train the best PA’s possible."
  11. Today
  12. Received an email today confirming my application is in review. Posted below: Dear Applicant, Your application is now in the Physician Assistant Studies Department for Review. Please allow several weeks to months for the review process. Thank you for your interest in our program,
  13. email always. I never got a confirmation, just an interview invite.
  14. Worst case we actually would hear next Monday since that’s 2 weeks from the conclusion of all interviews
  15. Hello, I’m wondering if there’s an update on Fresno campus. I can’t seem to find the information on the site about the expansion anymore. I checked ARC-PAs site and Samuel Merritt is getting a site visit in September. What does this mean for the students whom received acceptance to Fresno if they are not able to launch the satellite campus this year? Will they be accepted to Oakland this upcoming fall or defer enrollment into the next class? Thanks!
  16. I'd love to get some information as well! I begin rotations in September
  17. Anyone else who got an interview willing to post their stats? Thanks
  18. Yeah. I would think that they would do earlier because they give 10 days to either accept or reject the offer. Then they send another round to fill those spots and put people on the waitlist.
  19. For those who were placed on interview hold, when did was your application received by the school?
  20. Yeah maybe tomorrow or technically until this friday... the 2 week mark. Insert sad face.
  21. Just got an interview invite today! So I am assuming first round invites were just sent out.
  22. I wonder if we are going to have to wait til tomorrow? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
