Were you accepted to another school or was there something that you found out that put you off about this school or campus?

Both :) nothing wrong with the program I'm sure.. But for me; I couldn't get over the fact that the program uses instruction via live feed for some of the classes (a lot if your at their satellite campuses) ... I figure with the amount of money that you're paying for school the least they can do is give access to real instructors. IMO

 

That and I realized that Miami might not be the cats meow as far as living situations go...

 

I was also accepted elsewhere :)

I have an interview at the St. Croix campus on September 26th.  I wanted to see if anyone has made travel arrangements or have heard of any suggestions on where to stay. Thanks :)

I received an interview invite last night for St Pete Campus on Sept 19th!

 

My app was verified and sent last week to St Pete campus, how long did it take for you to hear from them that they received yours?

So frustrating.. my CASPA was verified in June and I haven't received a single email or notification from Barry.  I have called countless times, every number, as well as contacted them by email for the past six months.  Not once have they answered/responded until today.  They just happen to tell me that my application has been placed on hold because they need my international transcripts from studying abroad for 6 months and to pay for them to go through a translating service even though I received no grades through my university, just credits which are stated on my main transcript.  CASPA didn't want my transcripts and no other schools so this is extremely infuriating.  At this point I am just cutting my loss and not wasting another cent as I am too disgusted with the program now.  So heads up to anyone who has any international classes even if they were not counted..your app is on hold!

I am applying for the 2015-2016 and was wondering if the pre-PAs that got interviews could share their stats? I just wanna make sure that my stats are good for this school! Thanks much in advance! :)

Who were you able to speak to about this? This may be the case for me as well.....I'm sorry! That must have been so frustrating to find out!

Hey all!

I have an interview at the Miami Shores campus coming up and was wondering how everyone is preparing and if anyone has any insight into what to expect from the interview/what to wear? 

 

Thanks and good luck to everyone!

Interview last year was very laid back and starts with an informational session. Then you break off into groups for a discussion. Next you do a 15 min individual interview, q&a session and then lunch with current students. Overall not stressful. Dress is business professional. Hope this helps!

      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.
