  1. The key is finding those programs that don't have that minimum 3.0 GPA, OR who will put greater weight on recently earned credit hours, OR who say something along the lines of "Candidates with a cumulative GPA less than 3.0 will be considered when there is strong evidence of improved academic performance in more recently completed coursework"... like my program. I've seen several students in times past with this exact story. The last thing we wanted to do was punish those students in the application process when it's clear they've found their passion and are performing exceptionally well with
  2. I just completed a blog post highlighting why our program is going to be exceptional!

  5. Just FYI, we opened up our application cycle today! We do not participate in CASPA so you will have to apply through our online application portal.

  9. OK, we have now included links for all subcategories on the main library directory page. Give me some feedback. Is there anything else we can do? David Payne
  10. Update - for those of you who were using Internet Explorer we discovered that it was not interpreting the code correctly. We had to modify a few things. It's now corrected. So if you were unable to see the main page because you were using that sorry excuse for a browser, please try again! David Payne
  11. Update -- we'll be working on @wutthechris's suggestion over the next week. Hopefully we'll have the improvements made soon! David Payne
  12. @wutthechris That's a great idea, thanks for the feedback. It will be especially helpful to have the subcategories as links on the categories page for users who have become familiar with the general navigation scheme. They would still always have the option of going to the subcategory page if they wanted to read the descriptions for each. @msctc2013 Glad you like it! If you ever have comments or suggestions please don't hesitate. David Payne
  13. I'm the director of a program that is applying for provisional accreditation in April (University of Charleston in Charleston, WV -- http://www.ucwv.edu/pa) so I want to help clear some things up: -There is no such thing as "full" accreditation in the PA education world. A provisionally accredited program is a "full" form of accreditation in that it has been given it's blessing by ARC-PA. Following provisional accreditation, most programs receive the status of "continuing" accreditation, which is also a "full" form of accreditation. Students who enter a provisionally accredited program are
  14. I started a thread several weeks ago about our NEW Physician Assistant Links and Resource Library. At that time we got some excellent feedback on how it could be improved. To see the original thread, click here. We have now revamped the library considerably to make it more user-friendly. Please check it out. Here's the link: http://physician-assistant-ed.com/physician-assistant-pa-links-and-resource-library/ I'm sure you'll find that it will be an excellent resource to bookmark and refer to in the future. Best of all, it's 100% FREE! I've shared three quotes below that we received abou
  15. Thanks for the feedback guys, over the next few weeks I'm going to work on a mechanism where it's obvious that there's a change upon clicking on a link. I'll let you know when it's complete so you can evaluate the difference.
