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.

      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!

      Undergrad Ed School: University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

      Cumulative Undergrad. GPA: 3.68
      Science Undergrad. GPA: 3.58
      Post Bachelor GPA: N/A
      Age at application time : 22
      1st GRE - V: 141 Q: 150 W: 3.0 // I unfortunately scheduled the GRE after taking 2 summer finals (Physics and Psychology of Individual Differences) so this score is pretty much a baseline for how I would do with minimal / no studying. 
      2nd GRE - V: 149 Q 161 W: 3.0 // The GRE prep I used was Magoosh and they did not have an analytical practice section so my AW score was the same, but my verbal and quantitative scores improved tremendously! Magoosh usually has pretty good sales for a 6 month subscription for $125 (regular price of 1 month subscription) around January and July. 
      Direct Patient Care : (Patient Care Technician / CNA)
      Cerebrovascular / Diabetic floor (2 years ~2,500 hours)
      Float pool / Anywhere in the hospital (~500 hours)

      Professor who I had 3 classes in Microbiology (B) , Immunology (A), and Microbial Ecology (A) 
      Saving one more recommendation request for a potential PA or MD 
      Personal Statement Topic: I talked about my personal childhood struggles with many health issues in my family & how I wanted to pursue a career that provides access to healthcare . I then weaned into my work experience at the hospital and mentoring. Ended it with a description of the PA I shadowed and all the qualities that I believe I had to be an important asset in healthcare.
      Schools Applied: Six. UTHSC, South College - Knoxville, South College - Nashville,  Lincoln Memorial University, Lipscomb University, and UAB
      Application Submitted Date:
      06/03 for UTSHC, LMU, and UAB
      Late June for South College Knoxville and Lipscomb
      Mid August for South College- Nashville
      Schools Received Application Date: Most of the schools received my application in less than a week after it was verified. Verified 2 days after I submitted my CASPA application. 
      Interview Invites: LMU
      Denied: UTHSC
      Waitlisted: UAB
      Accepted: N/A
      Attempts: 2nd (Applied pretty late 1st cycle to 1 school because of graduation/deadline issues so this theoretically would be my 1st real application cycle) 
      Plan B if all else fails:
      1. Pursue an accelerated Masters in Pharmacology to compensate all this waiting since most of these PA schools matriculate in August 2019 
      2. Take the MCAT. Some PA schools allow MCAT scores and would be a good refresher in basic prerequisite courses. 
      3. Shadow MD's, PA"s, NP's, PT's 
      ..............................
      I would greatly appreciate all the strengths and weaknesses in my current application. Any other ideas to improve my application would be helpful as well. Thank you guys so much!
