My CASPA was verified 8/1, but I still haven't received any sort of confirmation from Barry. How long did this take for most of you? Also, how long after the confirmation did you guys receive interview invites?

You are not alone mine was verified in August and no word yet. From other ppls posts it looks like it took at least 2 months to hear anything.

Did anyone interview today? If so, how did it go? :)

 

It was a really great experience. It was my first PA interview experience and I feel that it went very well. All of the faculty I met were incredibly welcoming and interested in what you have to say. The group interview and individual interview were very relaxed and more like a conversation than a serious Q & A. They are very understanding of the stress that goes into the situation and go out of their way to alleivate it. Dress is business casual and I only brought a small clutch with my phone and license and that was fine.

 

Good luck on your interview!!

I had mine yesterday as well! It was broken up into a presentation, tour, group interview, individual interview, lunch with 2 current PA students, and a financial aid presentation. It was very laid-back, and the faculty really make every effort to ensure that you are comfortable. :)

      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?

      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.

      Recent applicant accepted to multiple NC schools. Wondering if it is worthwhile to attend some of the private, high-ranked schools or if it makes more sense to favor in-state tuition, especially with sights set on primary care? 
      Schools I applied to: Duke, Wake, Campbell, UNC, ECU
      Would appreciate insight into any of the above programs, and whether the private schools really do give you a leg up!
      Thank you!

      Hi everyone,
      I know this is a sensitive topic but I need sincere input to see whether anyone has actually declined USC admission for other local schools such as Western University or Loma Linda. I have read many posts about choosing the cheapest schools but living in such a competitive job market like Orange County, I feel like USC name can help us finding a better job, is it true? I know USC has the best PA program in Southern CA but its tuition is almost double that of other schools and is 6-9 months longer. Since I am married with one kid and paying mortgage, my future disposable income maybe too limited to cover the additional tuition of USC compared to other schools, although my husband is emotionally supportive of either choice.
      Your experience and advice are highly appreciated. Thanks!
