Anyone out there?

Recommended Posts

I'm just bumping this thread and seeing if there are any UMES PA applicants or students out there! I would love to hear from some who are applying this round or planning to apply next year...Also, those who are starting this fall are welcome to chime in and hopefully let us know how the program is as the year progresses.

I've applied but I'm not anticipating anything with this school. They have failed to email me back, call me back, or provide me with any information. Also I already have an acceptance letter so I guess it's their loss.

 

Good luck to you all though!

I emailed them some questions about the prereqs but never heard back so I gave them a call this week and they were very helpful. Where are you from, Kanga? I see you applied to a mix of places so I was wondering what your motivation for applying to UMES was.

 

Same for you, Anh... are you from the Eastern Shore?

I suppose that's to be expected since people have until Nov 1 to get applications in, and then you have Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years slowing everything down. I'm sure it makes for a nerve wracking holiday season, though. Keep me posted. I wish more people would come on this thread!

 

PS have any of you heard anything about an open house on October 11?

Update: the open house will actually be this saturday from 11am-1pm and followed by the white coat ceremony for this years starting class at 2pm. I can forward the brochure to anyone who is interested.

Sorry it took me so long to respond back, I'm from Texas. I only got an email saying they have my CASPA and interviews start jan 27th

 

I have an interview elsewhere for a program starting In jan so if I get into that one, I'll have to withdraw my app here. I wish they started interviews sooner. Anyone get any invites?

I had an interview this past wednesday - I'll hear back in about 2 weeks. I have another interview this coming Friday & other people have said they heard back in 2 days for that one.

 

It is very exciting but I still want to hear back from some other choice programs, including this one.

The schedule at UMES looks brutal. I am wondering why they have it set up that way (M-F 8am to 9pm, from what I recall). I can't wait for the spring open house so I can ask some of the current students about that.

 

Edit: Well, spring schedule is out and it looks 1000x better. M-R and done by 2 on M, 3 on W, and 5 on TR. I was wondering how anyone would even have time to study after looking at the fall class schedule!

My friend who applied with me had some insight.  From the best of my understanding, there are time gaps throughout the day.  It isn't straight through M-F 8am to 9pm every single day.  But a student should be expected to be available during the times you mentioned.

I'm a current first year student and for our classes we're usually out by 5pm each day depending on our schedule. The class times are listed as such just to be place holders so that we can register for classes.

I applied here and I just received an email from the program, notifying me that they have completed their 1st screening of CASPA applicants, and inquiring me if I would still like to be considered for and interview.

I also got an email saying that I was being considered for an interview.  I'm considering whether or not to pursue this.  I've been accepted to another school and have already put down $1500 in deposits, but UMES would be a much cheaper program.  Maybe I should pursue this and see how it works out, then decide.

How is this program? I am a Maryland resident but I have not given much consideration to this program. I feel like they have almost the same requirements class wise as medical school (some of which I have not taken).
