  1. They aren't very good at quick communication. Congrats on the interview. I applied in June and literally haven't heard a word since that day. It's safe to say I'm out, but I'm not sure why I can't be informed of that.
  2. Has anyone else on this thread been accepted or had an interview or know someone who has? All the Arkansas threads are like pulling teeth to get people to answer ha
  3. Congrats. That's great news. Do you remember if they mentioned anything else about interview dates?
  4. I haven't heard anything. Have you?
  5. Anyone that applied this year hear anything yet? My application was finished and got an email saying I'm in review 6/10
  6. I am so sorry. I completely over looked that. Thanks so much for catching that for me. I appreciate it. The rest of them should be correct I think! I'll update my post.
  7. No it's nice to have someone comment on my post! Christian schools don't care if you are or aren't christian. They just have a christian influence in their school. Christian Brothers for example is Catholic. They will have a stronger Catholic influence in how they view things. They don't force religion on you, but may offer to pray with you or give prayers for you during tough times. It's like going to Baptist Hospital. It's the same as any other hospital, but just a strong religious presence. Also, I'd like to note that private schools cost almost double that of public schools. I think CBU is about 11k per semester so it comes out to about 77k for the two years where as most state schools range from 40k and up. Hope this helps.
  8. Hey Jekt, I hesitated when posting this because informing people of schools lowers my chances of getting in ha, but I believe that a helping hand from a stranger can make a difference. I've definitely had strangers help me when they didn't have to so here it goes. I am applying to PA school this year and my GPA is sitting in the low 3.0 area as well. I have a master’s degree in public health and a few hundred hours of HCE. I'm only 24 so I have not had a lot of time to work due to school. The list below are the schools that I applied to and I have also listed there GPA requirement and deadlines. All of them have a GPA requirement of 3.0 or less. This is great for people like us who may want to apply to schools a little less competitive GPA wise. These schools tend to care more about the person as a whole rather than just numbers on a page. I'm assuming you have a family so moving may not be a realistic option, but I thought I'd mention them anyways. I live in Arkansas so all these schools that I applied to are in the South. (Does not use CASPA) Christian Brothers University, Memphis TN - 2.8 overall GPA. Application deadline July 1st 2014. University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock - Recommended 3.0 overall GPA, and recommended prerequisite GPA 3.0. Application deadline December 1st 2014 LSU Shreveport - 2.9 overall GPA. Application deadline October 1st 2014 Oklahoma Tulsa - 2.75 GPA and 2.75 prerequisite GPA. Application deadline October 1st. University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis - 2.75 overall and prerequisite GPA. Application deadline September 1st 2014. University of North Texas Health Science Center, Fort Worth - 2.85 overall GPA. Application deadline November 1st 2014 Baylor- 3.0 overall GPA. Application deadline September 1st 2014 (Does not use CASPA) Oklahoma City - 2.75 overall GPA. Application deadline October 1st. Please note that these are overall GPA's not science GPA'S. Also, Harding University in Searcy Arkansas is another good choice. They are a church of Christ school and I hear that they care more about the whole person than just the GPA. These are all schools worth looking into if you're ok with living in the South.
  9. Hello! I have applied to UAMS this year. I was wondering how long it takes for them to get back to you about inviting you to an interview. I applied to Christian Brothers, in Memphis, and they offered me an interview within a couple of days. Does anyone know how long it takes and what the interview is like? Of course, I'm assuming I get one. Thanks so much!
