I am currently on the wait list for Miami shores. I plan on applying again if I am not accepted. I may. It find out about acceptance until August. Do I go ahead and apply again before I find out?! I don't know how this works! Lol any input would be appreciated.

Does anyone have experience sending GRE scores to St. Croix? Do I send them to the Florida campus? Having some trouble, any advice would be appreciated!

Barry's ETS GRE institutional code is 5053 and the PA program code is 0634. I believe the program code applies to Barry PA in general, regardless of which campus you're applying to. Hope that helps!

Hmm….I would say it depends on if you're willing to spend the money again. Maybe see if they offer any preference for wait listed students in following cycles? If you've made it far enough to be wait listed, they are clearly interested. Do you know your rank in the list? I would try talking to someone in admissions to see how students in the past have handled this and determine your listing rank (if they release that information).

I've talked to the school and they claim there is no ranking and when a seat becomes available the interview faculty get together and choose someone. They also don't release how many people they have on the wait list. They give no information at all lol. But I do know in past years they had many people taken from the wait list and next years graduating class president was pulled from the wait list a week before classes started. I hate the waiting!

I got the email that Barry received my application and it's under review. Good luck to everyone!

Congratulations! Was your application verified prior to receiving that email? I have submitted mine, but I need one more reference to submit their rec letter before the verification process can begin.

I received an email a few weeks ago from Barry letting me know that I was still missing a letter of recommendation.  A few days later, that letter finally got submitted, but I haven't heard anything from then since the first email.  Do you think they get some sort of alert signifying that my application is now complete and ready for review, or should I have emailed them letting them know?

 

Thanks in advance!

I am debating on which campus to apply to. Does anyone have any additional information? I have looked online for more info but have not found much.

Received my confirmation of a complete application as well. Does anyone have an estimate of when they will be sending out interview invitations? I'm thinking August since the interviews begin in September..?

Seems the only real "difference" that they list on their website is the location. I'm guessing that the locations follow the same curriculum, exc.

Samann, I am starting school this August at the St. Croix campus as I applied last year. The education is all the same as everyone sits in on the same lectures via a skype-type of system. You'll get a feel for it during the group interview. So sometimes professors at your campus will be teaching, and other times it will be over a huge screen from one of the other campuses.

 

I chose St. Croix because it is so medically understaffed compared to Miami and St. Pete, so during the clinical year STX students will get a lot more hands-on experience. However, living on a tiny island can be hard on some people. I would suggest looking up the different areas (STX, STP, and MIami) and get a feel for them all. Just remember, no matter where you go, the didactic education is the same :)

 

Hope that helps.

      Hey guys,
      I'm currently considering applying next year and was wondering if anyone could share their stats for getting into nova or any other school in florida, especially how many pce hours, since they don't seem to require it but I'm not sure how many most applicants have.

      Hello I'm new to this website and forum but I have a plan to continue my education to become a Physician Assistant specializing in Dermatology. I wanted to hear from PAs or students who are in the minority specially the African/black community. I am a 24yr old Female, Jamaican-american. I plan on applying to a PA program here in Florida in the next 4 years, and was hoping to get some more information and advice please!!
      I will be attending an accelerated program (5-6months) to be a Medical Assistant (Sept.- Feb. 2020).
      After I am licensed in MA, I would like to reapply to UCF for my biomedical sciences degree. Where I can get in my hours for healthcare experience as an MA and finish my bachelors before applying to PA school.
      I have just a few concerns:
      1. Is becoming a MA worth it before PA school? or worth the money to go to school for?  I'm worried because most companies here are looking for bilingual MAs. I do want to learn another language preferably Spanish, but later on while I get my B.S in Biomed (Also I do not want to be CNA or RN).
      2. Is a biomedical science degree more looked at to enter a PA program? Which degree/major is also acceptable if I decide not to go the science route but I make sure I take my required science classes? 
      3. As a minority do we have an advantage or disadvantage to enter a PA school? 
      4. Does anyone have experience as a PA student either at NOVA or Barry University? If so, how are the professors and the overall work load?  
      5. After becoming a PA, do we experience racism throughout the country in our profession? (Regardless if we do or not, no one is going to stop me from doing my job correctly, I will treat every race with respect. I would just like to know because I'm curious since again there is not many of us as PAs.)
      6. How was the job search for you as a minority? How long did it take to land a job in your specialization?
      7. Are there any forums or websites to find a black PA to shadow? or if anyone can refer me in central to south Florida locations?
      8. I am highly interested in this career but want to know if this profession is worth committing to and seeking a job for in the years of 2024-2028? I know that's a stretch time but I like to be prepared lol 
      Thank you for your time!!

      Hi! Im a Biology student at FIU, currently taking my pre reqs for PA school. I am finding it quite difficult to find a PA willing to let me shadow them. I have emailed some. A couple responded stating that they weren't allowed to as they work in a private practice. I know a couple of NPs that will let me shadow them, but of course my school requires a LOR from a PA.
      Anyway, my email is dbrow251@fiu.edu! If you know anyone or are a PA willing to let me shadow them, don't be afraid to message me. I will of course provide a copy of my resume!
      Thank you!
