Hey you guys, i just joined the forum. Im applying to Barry University Miami campus. I am still waiting on CASPA to finish processing my transcript..Is anyone still waiting on CASPA to finish up somethings?? I'm feeling anxious over here.

CASPA made a mistake on my application so my "complete" date was two weeks after the day I submitted. I'm patiently waiting to be verified. Luckily, it's not really considered late in the application cycle yet so I wouldn't worry too much!

Hello. For those of you who received interview invites, do you mind letting us know when your application was verified by CASPA? Thanks!

Hi Everyone,

 

I completed my CASPA and was verified in May! I have all the prerequisites, Bachelors in Health Science, and took the GRE! I received a letter stating I have all the credentials and waiting for a call in September! My essay is strong and exhibits my passion for the PA career! Problem is I'm 27 and my husband and I would like another child. It truly is a fine balance between family and an intense program such as this one! I applied to the St. Petersburg campus! I wish everyone luck!

No, in September they will be making phone calls for interviews. In the meantime, I'm taking prerequisites for the anesthesiologist assistant program and getting my CNA certification! Options are always wise!

Is anyone from Michigan trying to plan this trip to St. Croix? Long-shot I know, but I am trying to get some insight for booking these flights! Message me if you are!

Hi Seaweed1029, I will be starting at the St. Croix campus in a few weeks (so excited!) and I am from Michigan. There are many places to stay, some more expensive than others. I personally used Orbitz to book my flight and hotel. I know a couple places do give a discount if you call them directly and mention you are here for the Barry PA interview. Another thing, many of the cheaper flights from Michigan have two stops, but I would suggest choosing the one stop since it is stressful enough preparing for your interview, and then dealing with layovers just adds on to that :/ But that's just me. What I highly recommend, since the interview is on a Friday, is to fly in on Thursday, rent a car, and stay the weekend on St. Croix; it is a beautiful island and truly worth exploring! I think you will be very impressed by the staff and students that you will meet! Good luck to everyone!

MicroPA,

 

Thank you for all of your advice! I am booking a flight today, unfortunately the only flight that works for me has 2 stops! However, I am leaving Thursday the 10th and staying until the 13th through Airbnb. I am very excited to see the island and explore! My place is very close to the school so I am trying to decide if I should rent a car or just taxi. I can't wait to meet everyone and tour the school- I'm already preparing for the interview, I want to go here so badly, I just worry about the amount of students they accept so I'm trying to keep calm!

Maybe I should call them, did you check up on your application with them? I hope I get an interview and accepted! However, like I said, I have other options. I'm not going to be too bumbed whatever happens happens. Good luck!!!

I accepted the interview offer at St. Croix on September 18th! I'll be traveling on the 17th and leaving on the 21st. Anyone else attending the interview on 18th? My dad used to live in St. Croix so if anyone needs help with travel/stay information I'm open to help! I'm so excited :)

      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!
