I, too, received an email from Miami Shores campus. However, they're saying that I'm missing behavioral science courses - which is odd given my bachelors is in political science.

I just received an invitation to interview at the Miami Shores campus. Does anyone know how to prepare for an interview? This is my first cycle and also first invite!

So far I have only seen one person say they have received any kind of confirmation from the St. Pete campus. Has anyone else heard any news? I want to make sure they're communicating with others before I harass -I mean, contact- them.

I have also received a confirmation that they have my complete application. I haven't heard anything else though.

I got an email saying they forwarded my application to the admissions committee for review on Monday for the St. Pete campus. I called the main campus to make sure they had my most recent GRE scores and it turns our they used my old GRE scores in my application and told me there was no way they could update my application with my most recent scores. So I am pretty unhappy about that. I did also visit the St. Pete campus and talked to one of the professors who told me that they are just now starting to review applications as of this week. So I would expect they will start sending out interview invitations in a week or so.

Does anyone know if they process applications in any particular order? I called today, and all she would tell me is that I will receive an email when my app is entered in the system. My CASPA was verified 7/3, and I haven't heard anything. I'm applying to St Pete campus.

That's kind of crappy. Most schools will update your application at any time. When you interview just take your documentation with you.

Interview invite for Sept 19th at St. Croix. Anyone else? I'm trying to get as much info about this specific campus as possible. Help?

I interviewed and was waitlisted last year. The campus is small and in a mall. It's soooo nice there. Anatomy is learned on models instead of cadavers and it uses a distance learning approach. The atmosphere was relaxed and they feed you lunch. All you have to do is be yourself and show them your personality.

      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?
    • By LT_Oneal_PAC
      FYI for my prior service colleagues: I’m in the process of finalizing, but it appears you can use 100% Institution of Higher Learning GI Bill benefits (not the “apprenticeship” 80% and tapering pay) during residency. I’m choosing to use the Montgomery GI Bill since it gives more money than the BAH of post 9/11 for my area, and with no tuition it’s all money in my pocket. Really going to help make up for that income loss.
      Note: HPSP and those who direct commission with loan repayment cannot use the Montogomery GI Bill, only HSCP recipients who paid in. Another reason HSCP is better, in my opinion.
