  1. I’m sorry that you feel this way about MDC and that you’re frustrated with your personal outcome. Miami Dade College is very competitive and only considers those with the skills necessary to succeed as a Physician Assistant once you graduate the program. Those skills extend beyond academics to include professionalism, patience, compassion, and many of the other skills required for this field. I would recommend that in the future all applicants demonstrate these skills in person and in all other platforms. As for the GRE, MDC has been ahead of the game, realizing that the it does not test students on the skills needed in medicine; this is why they have their own focused assessment. The Master’s program offered with Saint Francis is a real master’s degree and exactly what you need to sit for the Physician Assistant National Certifying (PANCE) exam. Every PA graduate in the nation sits for the same exam. MDC currently has a pass rate of 98% so they are definitely doing something right. Now for nursing, it is also a great field but keep in mind that if your goal is to reach Nurse Practitioner, that will be 2-4 years of nursing school plus an additional 2 years of schooling for your MSN. For the rest of this year’s applicants, don’t be discouraged. Be patient, have faith, and continue preparing for your interview. It always takes a few weeks for the invites to go out. As Jason said, right now they’re managing the new applicants, the clinical year students, and us (c/o 2021). If any of us hear anything we will let you know. We’re all very excited for you and wish you the best of luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Hey guys :). The 2020 applicants need a bachelors degree. Our program is already transitioning to a master’s program so a bachelors degree is required. Hope this helps :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. Hey Yimsy, I did the Barry BMS program as well and yes it counted towards the required courses as long as it was within five years. They accepted my anatomy, physiology, medical micro, and biochem 1 and 2 for the anatomy, micro, and chemistry requirements. Hope this helps.
