Just email Monica at Heritage and she'll tell you how to fill it out. I ran into a similar issue and she told me what to put there.

Thank you so much for your quick response! I will e-mail first thing tomorrow morning so it doesn't appear I was up late aimlessly working on it. Ha!

Has anyone finished their supplemental for Heritage? I am having difficulty getting past the pre-req section because it requires me to put something into the statistics/algebra category but it has 2 spots.... but we only need one... But then I can't continue forward without entering 2! Frustrated. Anyone have guidance?

I actually had classes in both those so I just put them both in, but I would just put dashes in the one you don't need to put information in.  You need to problem solve, you will be doing this as a PA. :P

Not since they told me that my application was complete. But the timeline on their website says that they notify people on Dec. 1 if they are selected for an interview in Jan.

It also states that the admissions committee reviews applications on a rolling basis.  Also, I received an email from Monica stating that there a limited seats left.  Possibly 13 if i'm mistaken.

I emailed Monica this morning and she replied that the website is correct- that candidates are notified in Dec for Jan interviews.

Monica told me the same thing. She said that notices for interviews will go out on December 1st. BUT, when I asked what it meant if I didn't received an interview on December 1st, she said that not getting an interview offer on that date doesn't mean that you won't end up getting one.

 

Honestly, not sure how to interpret all of that. I'm just hoping that I hear back on December 1st!

 

Does anybody have any idea about how many people are applying to this program? I had never heard of it until I started researching programs that would offer exposure to students interested in working with Native American populations, as this is a really a huge part of my life story (spent teen years and early 20s living on a reservation...long story, if you care to ask). 

 

This is probably my number one school out there right now. Yes, it is new, but I really really really LOVE the fact that it is so closely intertwined with a reservation.

My guess is that means they will send out invites on Dec 1, but there are people out there that may decline the invitation before the interview actually takes place, so then they may invite other people after Dec 1 to fill those spots. This is just a guess though.

That's what I assumed, too. Thanks for your input. Are you applying as well?

 

I saw a picture on their website and it seemed like many of the students were in their later 20s, 30s and 40s...I'm wondering if they heavily weigh towards older students and more HCE. Also, I'm interested to know if they prefer local applicants. I'm almost positive this is the case since they seem to focus on training providers who will work in rural and underserved areas.

 

Thoughts?

I have been also! Nothing to report here either.

 

Although this year there are changes to their admission and selection processes and timelines. So maybe some reason related?

 

 

Who knows.

So has anyone gotten an email? I see there are more people viewing the post than actually commenting, so I'm wondering if any of you have perhaps gotten an email. I had in interview with heritage earlier this year, but that time they actually sent the emails out a few days before the actual posted date when they would deliver invites for interviews.

      Hey all, 
      Been reading a lot about applicants who have taken a biology/health-science/etc. masters program in an effort to improve their GPA or to "show" PA schools that they can handle tough, upper level coursework. I was wondering what you'd consider the "cut-off" to be for when you should or should not pursue a masters? Anything less than 3.7? 3.6? 3.5? 3.4? 
      Quite frankly I've been considering this myself (I'd be happy to provide my stats). I know a lot of factors obviously go into a decision like this (trends, cGPA, sGPA, pre-reqGPA, HCE, shadowing, the application as a whole, etc.), but just kinda wondering what peoples inclinations are on this. 
      Thanks!

      HI! I am a current student looking to gain clinical experience as a medical scribe but am not sure where to start! I have tried to do my own research but every site I find seems to offer jobs once I am certified ( which I am not) . I want to make sure I take the correct steps and having someone I could come to with questions would be extremely helpful! thanks in advance !

      Hello, I graduated last year with a 2.6 GPA and my science GPA is 2.4. I have two D's, I am retaking one of those two D at a community college ( organic chemistry) the other D is in ecology in which I may not retake tbh because I didn't enjoyed the class. I registered for organic chemistry 2 to help my Sgpa but my dilemma is this.... my financial situation is starting to stress me out. I cant afford to take hard core science classes ( like I originally planned) in a degree that doesn't lead to a guaranteed career (biotechnology). so I thought of either medical laboratory technician or lpn.  I thought of these because #1 cheaper and faster option, #2 mlt has always sparked my interest and #3 I'm a cna ( almost 4 years) and I work closely with a lpn.  the lpn option I'm looking at is a certificate option because is only one year. my whole goal in this is to help my GPA and also have a career. I don't mind continuing to build my PA  application after this but I wanna make sure if doing any of these route will help me and not become a waste of time. 
      if you guys have any other suggestions please let me know. the biotechnology degree I can finish it in a year but what if after that I'm still not a strong applicant? then I'm stuck with another degree... no career 
      I don't care how long it takes to become a PA! I'm 24 years old and I already have a lot of financial baggage. I want to make a smart decision

      Hello,
      I am currently struggling to decide which field I want to pursue ( Master's in Health Administration  vs Physician Assistant). I want to interact with patients but I also want to focus on managing hospitals and program implementation. Do you guys have any suggestions on what I can do that could expose my to both of my interests or if one has a higher job demand than the other? Any feedback is appreciated!

      HI Folks,
      I am currently in the second year of my contract, i have a bachelors degree in engineering but thats from asia.
      I am an active duty army 68W medic currently working at an army hospital.
      Question i have is that, i was going through lots of PA schools everywhere they say that the degree should be from an university in USA.
      So is it not possible to get into any of the PA programs when i get out of military in couple of years without a bachelors  degree from america?
      What can i do to improve my chances to get into any of the PA programs?
      I checked these schools as a sample.
      University of Iowa
      University of Colorado
      To be honest i dont care about the location once i get out, but wanted to know whats the way forward ?
