Hi everybody! I am a Student at Seton Hall and will be applying to Monmouth this summer for the term starting in 2015! Any advice? I am extremely nervous.. this is my passion (as I am sure we are all in the same boat) … I don't mean to pry buy would anyone who was accepted mind sharing your GPA, prereq GPA, etc? Any tips would also be extremely appreciated. I want to maximize my chances of being accepted… Thanks!

I am very excited to have been accepted to Monmouth University's new PA program. Please post if you have been accepted too, I would love to meet my new classmates!

Congrats!!! Just wondering what were your stats if you don't mind. GPA, GRE, experience etc. I'm taking my GRE on thursday and after that I should hear back from them relatively soon. Also, what was the interview process? What sort of questions did they ask you? Crossing my fingers maybe we'll be classmates!!!

My GPA is a 3.3 and i forget my GRE since i took it a year ago and cant seem to remember my log on the the GRE website. I have over 1000 hours of experiance as a clinical assistant at an orthopedic office where i work with 5 PA's. I also have 100 hours of shadowing experiance with a PA in Interventional Radiology. I interviewed with one professor from the PA program and two people from the graduate admissions department. They asked me typical questions like why i want to be a PA and why i choose Monmouth. They also asked me questions about my job and experiance with working with PA's.  Just be yourself and dont have your answers be too scripted. They were very nice and relaxed. Hope everything works out for you guys!

 Sorry last question for now lol do you happen to know how many applicants they've accepted so far? I know they're only taking a max of 20 according to the website, I'm just wondering if the class is full already. Thanks!

No I'm sorry, I don't know how many people were accepted already. I'm sure if they'd tell you but you can try calling the admissions office

I have an interview on April 23!! I'm so excited and hope everything goes well. Can anyone comment on how the interview is? Is it a group or single? Do you interview with more than 1 member? How long does it take? Any advice? Thanks!!! Fingers crossed!!!!

 

Congrats mrm8591! when i did my interview i was by myself. before the interview i had 15 minutes to write a small essay on a certain topic. I interviewed with 1 professor and 2 members from admission from the university. The interview felt like a minute but was probaly 20-30 minutes. Just relax and be yourself and youll do fine!

      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!

      Monday to Friday 9-5. No weekends.
      But I’ve shadowed on Monday and they usually stay late. When the doctor is there the work seems very secretarial. Calling about results a lot of the time from what I’ve seen. There’s a PA there that’s been there for 3 years and even she seems to spend most of the time at the computer. But I will get to do joint injections and the standard pain management stuff.
      Benefits: 80k + 10k signing bonus (repaid in full if I leave within two years)
      Insurances Full
      Licensing, DEA, and credentialing; Full
      $750 CME
      2 weeks paid for vacation and sick leave
      1 week paid for CME
      Malpractice Covered with No tail (but tail seems to be required) 2 Year, 15 mile non-compete (they have 3 offices)
      Oh and they want me to start as an MA at $16/hr while my licensing is going through.
      Pretty bad huh?

      I didn't notice a forum for this program, so I thought I would try to start one.
