  1. I wanted to start a thread for all students that got into St. Croix class of 2018 so we could get to know each other a little better. Does anyone know if we have a Facebook page yet?
  2. Hi! Wanted to create an area for accepted students of Barry University's Class of 2020, Miami campus. Will you be attending?
  3. I am a Medical Laboratory Scientist, currently working in a large hospital laboratory, and I am very interested in becoming a PA and I would appreciate any advice given! I am a generalist, so I work in all of the labs (Hematology, Chemistry, Blood Bank, UA/Coag and some Micro) on any given day. Over the last year, I have become more and more interested in the PA profession and it looks like something that I would love to do. I am now 36 years old, so a little late to the game, but I also know it's not too late. However, I am a little worried that some of my prereq classes are a little too old. I graduated with a Biology Degree in 2004. Will schools still accept older classes or should I retake some of them? Also, as I work in the lab, I do not get any patient interaction, should I look into getting a part-time job to get patient contact experience or should my experience in the lab be enough for HCEs? I thought about getting an EMT certification and trying to get a part-time job as an ER tech. Also, finally my GPA wasn't all that great as an Undergrad. My BCP GPA is 3.04, however my Post Baccalaureate Science GPA is 3.54. I'm hoping that since I did well in a very rigorous MLS program (3.75), while also working full time, that it could offshoot my undergrad GPA. Am I correct in this assumption? So, I guess my main question is, should I get my EMT to try to gain my patient care experience or focus more on retaking prerequisite classes? Thanks for any advice that can be given!
  4. Hi! I started a Facebook group for the Class of 2019, Barry University, St Croix Campus. It's called Barry St. Croix Class of 2019. Come join us!!
  5. Hi everyone! I thought we could all update each other on our wait list status for the 2015-2016 cycle. I just got an email today saying I am on the wait list. My interview was 1/15. Good luck to everyone!
  6. Please feel free to share information regarding the application process/Barry University. Best of luck!
  7. In my major, if you have a certain concentration, a 400 hour internship is required at an approved site. This past semester, I completed my internship and I'm wondering if it can be counted as "hands on healthcare experience." I did my internship in inpatient & outpatient rehab and cardiac rehab. List of things I did: Checked blood pressures Put on heart monitors Helped patients do their exercises In inpatient sometimes a therapist would tell me to go to a patients room and do specific exercises for 20 minutes or so then ask them what their pain level was. In out patient I would also go through exercises with a patient if a therapist was busy Can I count this as HCE? My only worry is that this internship was technically a class I had to take and I got 6 hours of credit for it. I don't know how schools feel about that.
  8. At the NYSSPA annual conference there will be a workshop held for Pre-PA students, hosted by many of the faculty members and program directors from the schools in the area. It's a great way to get advice from the insiders on what you can do to get into their programs. https://scontent-lga1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xft1/v/t1.0-9/11880598_834463486674748_6087743120751407410_n.jpg?oh=9f7acd9962f93beae9d0cfbb8040e627&oe=566CC01B
  9. Hey, Is anyone applying to Campbell for this cycle? If so, any interviews yet?
  10. http://pashadowonline.com/ to hook up a shadowing opportunity in your general area. Personally never used it but i've heard good things. Another thing to consider is volunteering in a local hospital that utilizes PAs. Try and get on a specific unit where there will be heavy PA foot traffic(ER/ICU) Good old fashioned face to face networking goes a long way.
