  1. I think there's a handful here in that situation. I spoke with an admissions counselor today from a different NSU PA program and she said that it's typical that interviews and acceptances go on through December in all the programs, so nerves can rest assured! We will all hear from someone!
  2. Hey everyone, I also just spoke with admissions and they told me there will be three interview "batches": in September, December and February. Some data points: 1. They will contact you within 7-9 weeks after submitting your application about an interview/rejection. 2. They will contact you within 7 days after an interview re acceptance/rejection. 3. They will have 100 students in this cohort. 4. They will likely have no more seats available after February, so don't wait to submit an app! 5. If you have unfinished pre-reqs, you can still apply, as long as you show them "In Progress" in CASPA. Good luck everyone and congrats to those already invited to interview!
  3. I haven't yet heard of this group. I'll check it out. Thanks
  4. I must admit, sharing your experience with us is food for thought for a Pre-PA person like me. I was a Catholic priest for 17 years and left the profession because of burnout (we had to be marriage counselors, administrators, spiritual guides, and "politicians" of a sort, all in one, and had to always smile and had no family or support person beside/behind us). I chose to pursue the PA profession because, among many reasons, I was under the impression that the administration and "political" parts were not included. I still hope this is true. Sometimes the grass seems greener, but reality is: we are the same cows eating the same weeds. I wonder how much is setting personal boundaries and staying out of politics. I don't mean to diminish the significance of your experience or decision. I just wonder for the benefit of other pre-PAs if the future of the profession is a matter of setting the right expectations: You will be challenged by others in your provider role. You will have a lot of work to do, especially the better you become. And your salary will not be commensurate with the kind of work you do. Is this accurate? I think the fact that you made this decision with your spouse is very important and exemplary!
  5. Hey everyone, I've gotten a couple of PMs about this, so I'm going to just post this here. For the benefit of those who are wondering: if you were invited to an interview, please let everyone know these two things - 1. When you submitted your NSU Orlando application 2. How many of the NSU PA Programs in Florida you applied to
  6. Hey everyone, I've been reading your discussion with some interest. Congrats on all of you for getting this far! I can't tell from the online description if this program is hybrid/online. Can anyone shed some light on that? Thanks!
  7. Hey everyone, Did anyone get an invite to interview from the NSU Fort Lauderdale program yet?
  8. Hey everyone, The supplemental app is an online thing. Try this link and create your account. It should sync with CASPA after a week or so. But you'll still need to fill in the blanks on the page, even if some of it is already in CASPA. https://nova.elluciancrmrecruit.com/Apply/Account/Login Good luck with this cycle and I hope to see you all as students in the same cohort!
  9. Hey there weewoo, Never give up. You never know what could happen. On paper you have so many good things. I'm sure your personality is the right fit for the career, sounding the way you do on this channel. Certainly your desire to work and serve as a PA will grow with this experience, so it will only strengthen your personality. Never give up. If you were meant for it, you'll become a PA.
  10. Hey everyone, a head's up. I talked again with Sarah and she says they are still reviewing applications... So if you haven't heard from someone yet... don't despair! If you have heard from them and were already invited to an interview, then consider yourself special. I haven't heard of anyone invited to interview yet.
  11. Since others may encounter the same lack of information I encountered, I'll create this group to spare you the effort. Keiser has suspended their application activity for the 2021 - 2022 cycle, meaning they are currently reorganizing their PA program to meet accreditation standards. So don't bother trying to find them on CASPA - they aren't there!
