  1. I switched from non-resident to resident when I was taking undergrad classes. It was a super easy process. I just filled out the Florida residency for tuition purposes form , provided the documents for proof of residency, and submitted everything to the admissions office. They processed everything within a day or two. Hope that helps!
  2. I decided to decline my seat. I just sent the email, so hopefully one of you will receive some good news tomorrow! Good luck everyone!
  3. Just got off the phone with Dr. Belote - I got accepted!!! I interviewed October 8. Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear!
  4. That is interesting. They originally only had interview dates scheduled until November 19 and I think they added that December date later on. Not sure if they changed the schedule just for that day since it was added later or if they have fewer applicants interviewing since it's the last session. Either way, 11 hours was really long and tiring, so consider yourself lucky!
  5. Here is the info from the email I received: Where: The University of Tampa’s campus, located at 401 W. Kennedy Blvd. Tampa, FL 33606. Please report to the second floor of the Graduate and Health Studies Building (#53 on the campus map). When: Monday, October 8. Registration and breakfast is 7:30am-8:30am, with the official program starting at 8:30am. Please plan to be on campus until 6pm that night. Parking: If you plan to drive, we have spots reserved in the Thomas Parking Garage. Please enter the garage from W. North A. Street off N. Boulevard. Let the guard know you’re here for the Physician Assistant Medicine Interview Day. The guard will direct you where to go. Accommodations: There are many hotels close to UT’s campus. Please view our suggestions on our website. I suggest you explore some of the local attractions as well. Mobile rideshare apps such as Uber and Lyft are available in the area. Tampa International Airport is just 6 miles away from campus. Day-Of Requirements: Dress should be business formal. Please bring a photo ID.
  6. First off, congratulations on your acceptances! I think your decision comes down to your timeline on becoming a PA and where you want to be post-grad. If you're set on working in the NJ/NY area, I would personally choose a school in that area so you can make connections with preceptors during your clinical rotations and potentially find a job straight out of school. To me, that crosses Rosalind Franklin off the list. There doesn't seem like a whole lot of advantages to RF over the other two other than cost, but you'll ultimately end up having to relocate there and then back to NJ after graduation, which adds cost on its own. And although Seton Hall is more expensive, having summers off means you can have some income if you choose to work during that time. If you narrow it to Seton Hall vs. Cornell, the biggest difference is the timeline. If you attend Cornell, you'll be out an entire year sooner than Seton Hall when you factor the start date and program length. That translates an extra year working and income to pay back loans. Does your age play a factor here at all? If you're an older, non-traditional student like me, a shorter program that starts sooner is more desirable. From an outsider's perspective, Cornell seems like the better bet because of its lower cost, shorter timeline, and the fact that you will have housing covered with family members in the city. Yes, the subway will set you back about $120 for a monthly unlimited MetroCard, but you also won't be paying for car insurance, parking, or gas. However, it seems that you have some genuine concerns about the program at Cornell and your overall feel of Seton Hall was more positive. I get the impression that your gut is telling you Seton Hall, and I think if you're okay with the longer time period there, it's worth the extra ~20k tuition in the long run. Ultimately, you need to be in an environment where you're comfortable and a place that you feel you'll be most happy during the stressful process of PA school. I don't know if that helps or not, but hopefully it provides a little perspective from an outside standpoint. Best of luck in your decision!
  7. I just received an acceptance call from Dr. Wills! I don’t even know what to say, I’m so excited!!!
  8. I received the secondary review email this week as well. I submitted early July.
  9. So great to meet everyone at the afternoon session today! Best of luck to all ?
