  1. Definitely. Thanks for your input! I've noticed that some programs are more transparent regarding their accreditation status than others. I've also read that there is "administrative probation" versus "academic probation." I don't know which one is more unsettling.
  2. That's great to hear! I've talked to a couple other people and they have said similar things about their perspective probationary programs. I think the only concern that I would have after the fact is if the program's administration is actively making improvements to eventually reach "Accreditation-Continued." Thanks for replying & good luck!
  3. Hi, everyone! What are your thoughts on applying to programs with a ARC-PA probationary accreditation status (i.e., "Accreditation-Probation")? I'm a first-time applicant, and a couple schools that I have my eye on currently have probationary statuses (Johnson & Wales University; Monmouth University). I was wondering if it's worth applying to said schools, especially to ones that have had a probationary status for more than two years. Although these schools are still considered accredited, is it safe to apply to & then attend these schools? Do these schools prepare students to become competent & trustworthy healthcare professionals? Are these schools worth the debt? My concern is enrolling in a school with probationary accreditation and graduating as a sub par PA-C, but those are just my uncertain sentiments at the moment. Moreover, I've read that applying to these schools may be advantageous to some who aren't considered "strong applicants" (e.g., average grades/GRE). On the other hand, I've seen "strong applicants" display their admiration & loyalty to these schools here on PA Forum. I'm confused! Let's open up the discussion!
