Hi everyone!

 

I'm a student from Illinois interested in applying at Barry University. Does anyone know what the class size is at each of the campus locations? I couldn't find it listed anywhere on their website. Thanks in advance!

I have a question for whoever may have applied to Barry before. Is it better to apply now with some prerequisites not done until the end of June or should I wait and still be in good shape? My stats are nothing amazing except for quite a bit hce (>3000 hrs) so is applying sooner safer for an applicant like me? Thanks.

I applied with two outstanding pre-reqs in mid-July..I took organic in the summer and anatomy and physiology in the fall and submitted before either was complete. I was still offered an interview.

My application was just verified - I'm applying to St. Pete campus. I have two chemistry courses still in progress, which shouldn't be a big deal. Anyone know what the average health care experience hours looks like for past cohorts? 

Best of luck to everyone applying!

Does anyone know what code to send our GRE scores to for Barry-miami campus? I see that their code is 5053 but do I need to include the PA departmental code as well? Don't want to have to pay for the score report twice, but want to make sure it gets to the right people!

Also haven't heard.  :)

 

I work with an ICU nurse that applied, interviewed and was accepted to Barry's CRNA program all since I submitted my application! haha

 

She told me she loved the school, thought she did iffy on the interview and was contacted about a week after the interview with the offer.  She decided it was here favorite school and accepted!

      What are some PA schools that have a "lower" tuition (for our-of-state students specifically??
    • By DelaneyR44
      Hello, I’m a Navy spouse planning to use 2 years of my husband’s GI Bill for PA school.  Unfortunately there are no public PA schools where my husband is stationed, so the GI Bill is only going to cover about half of my tuition. All schools I’m applying to participate in the Yellow Ribbon program, but I’ve read that the Yellow Ribbon program isn’t available to active duty service members or their spouses, which seems kind of backwards to me.
       
      Does anyone have experience with this?

      Hello there, I understand that ultimately this is my choice alone but would appreciate any insight from currently practicing PAs. I’ve received an offer from USC (Los Angeles) & Rush University (Chicago). I’m from California so the temptation  to attend a California school in sunny LA is very appealing. I would be closer to friends and family. However tuition is probably the highest in the nation ~180 K not including housing/other living expenses. Rush on the other hand is also an amazing program but located in Chicago. I would be away from loved ones and my support system (Family, friends, boyfriend). I love the school too! Both great academics/training opportunities. Rush however is closer to $98K. I don’t want to be buried in debt. Any thoughts? Or is the price relatively non-consequential given I would be graduating @28 years old. And have years worth of earning potential?

      Hello everyone! So, I am very thankful to have gotten into both SBU & Desales, but I am struggling to decide between them... Stony Brook is in-state for me and 15 mins away from home, so the tuition is significantly cheaper than DeSales’ ($53,000 as opposed to DeSales’ $79,000), and I wouldn't need to pay rent.

      I am struggling because even though SBU would be much cheaper overall, and has an excellent reputation and ranking, I just did not feel like I connected with the faculty there, and I wasn’t very excited after the interview. Even though the programs are both 24 months, SBU seemed more rigorous and fast-paced. The students at SBU also seemed a bit older, which makes me feel like I'd be the inexperienced one of the bunch. Another concern is that I don't really want to live at home. Living with my family would save me money, but it may also drive me crazy with the added stress of PA school ? I would most likely want to live on LI no matter what school I go to though, and so going to SBU may make it easier to get a job in the area once I graduate. SBU also ends in May, which I've heard is better for new PA grads in terms of job hunting.
      On the other hand, DeSales is a bit more expensive, but definitely not as expensive as some programs out there. It has clinical experiences during the didactic year, such as a student-run free clinic and shadowing that I would not have at SBU.  I also really connected with the faculty there and could picture myself going there and being happy. DeSales also had a brand-new, huge simulation lab that the PA students get to use a lot. DeSales is also one of the only programs in that area, you get more one-on-one time during clinical rotations, whereas w/ SBU, you’re with other LI PA students and med students.

      Some stats:

      PANCE 5-yr pass rates: SBU-97%, DeSales-100%

      Class size: SBU-44, DeSales-80

      Campus: SBU-within a hospital & affiliated w/ med school, DeSales- w/in an undergrad campus

      Both have full cadaver dissection labs

      Electives: both have 1 elective

      Start date: SBU- June, DeSales- August
      PBL classes: SBU- have only about 4 of these activities throughout didactic year, DeSales- small group class discussion twice every week throughout all of didactic
       
      Overall, the main things that would drive me to go to SBU are the low cost and the ranking. Otherwise, I like DeSales more. Some insight on this dilemma would be much appreciated!!

      Can someone explain why Stanfords tuition is 160k for the program? Am I reading this wrong? What makes this program so much better?
