I believe that they are currently in the Academic Evaluation (AE) phase so that is exciting - I will more than likely withdraw from Butler :/

Yes, I did on the 18th.

When were you CASPA verified?  I was verified on 6/23 but have not heard anything yet.  I emailed them in July to see if they received my application, but they have not responded.  I don't want to be that person that is a nag, but Im starting to get a little antsy :)

I was verified on 7/22.  It might be worth giving them a call or emailing them again, I'm sure they get a lot of emails so they might have just missed your first one.

Received an email today stating that I have been waitlisted for interviews. Luckily I've already been accepted to another program and would have most likely withdrawn from Butler. Good luck to everyone else applying!

I also received an email saying I was waitlisted for interviews....I'm also wondering if they say that to everyone or if we're actually on a waitlist?  Not sure!

I was "waitlisted" as well.  I am taking that as rejected unless you hear otherwise.  Most programs will wait list you after an interview, but since this was before interviews were conducted I would assume that means it is a no.  Just my thoughts though!

I was also waitlisted for an interview. It doesn't mean a "no". I was waitlisted last year for an interview at a program and ended up interviewing!

I have been accepted as well. See you guys in May. Does the class we will be combining with have any social media groups like Facebook?

Congrats siersmar! 

 

Also, I'm not sure if our class has a Facebook group yet or not...

Were the people accepted to Butler still planning on attending? My wife and I were planning on moving down early spring. Any recommendations on places to live? Also we have two dogs.

I am attending! I am coming from Wisconsin, so do not have lots of input on the various areas, but at the NAE I asked a current student where most people live - she said most either live right around campus or out near W 86th Street. I actually grew up as a kid in the W 86th St. area, and although I haven't lived there as an adult (or in the last 15 years!) it does seem like it's still a good place to live. I went and looked around while down there in October and it seems like there's lots of newer apartments that have been built, and it's a little farther out from the city if you're looking for a little more land for your dogs. About a 15-20 minute drive from campus if I remember correctly. Hope this helps a little, if anyone is from the area I'm sure they'll know much more. I'm looking forward to meeting you and everyone else in May!

 

Edit: Also, I asked Erin if they were planning on setting up a FB group/other way to get in touch with people before May, and she said they'll be sending out a class roster at the end of the month. Hopefully more people will be in touch then.

Thank you very much for the reply, there seems to be a lot of apartments in that area! I was looking East and Northeast of campus initially to live close to Broad Ripple because it looks like a cool area to hang out in. A house would be nice but the cost would pretty hard to slide without roommates. Time to do some more browsing online. I like that there is a lot of nice grocery stores in the area too!

I agree, Broad Ripple looks like a fun place to be! I'd like to live somewhat close to campus so I can walk/bike in, but I feel like it might be hard to find a nice place close by on short notice. I definitely have to do more searching!

      As someone who has a noncompetitive GPA, I am considering pursuing a Master's in Biomedical Sciences to show programs that my study habits and academic performance has most certainly improved. 
      -Does anyone know if grades received in a master's program help boost the overall GPA?
      - Would the science courses taken at a grad level count for PA school pre-reqs?
      -Any tips/advice from those that have taken this route?
       
      I appreciate you taking the time to help 🙂

      Hi all!
      I just received an email that I was being extended an interview that was about 3 weeks out from the current date.
      I responded around 4 hours after I received the email to accept the interview, but I received an email a couple hours later that they were going to have to reschedule and that “they would email me when another date opens up”. 
      Has this happened to anyone else??
      Should I be worried? Or do they send out more interview invites than spots that they have open for the day because they know that some people may decline? 
      Thanks!

      Hi, everyone!
      What are your thoughts on applying to programs with a ARC-PA probationary accreditation status (i.e., "Accreditation-Probation")?
      I'm a first-time applicant, and a couple schools that I have my eye on currently have probationary statuses (Johnson & Wales University; Monmouth University). I was wondering if it's worth applying to said schools, especially to ones that have had a probationary status for more than two years. 
      Although these schools are still considered accredited, is it safe to apply to & then attend these schools? Do these schools prepare students to become competent & trustworthy healthcare professionals? Are these schools worth the debt? My concern is enrolling in a school with probationary accreditation and graduating as a sub par PA-C, but those are just my uncertain sentiments at the moment. 
      Moreover, I've read that applying to these schools may be advantageous to some who aren't considered "strong applicants" (e.g., average grades/GRE). On the other hand, I've seen "strong applicants" display their admiration & loyalty to these schools here on PA Forum. I'm confused! Let's open up the discussion!

      I am sure this has been asked before, if so, please forward it to me. But when writing out the description and responsibilities of your various experiences, should the format be a list/bullet point or more of a thoughtful written out paragraph? 
      What I have so far (in an excel sheet), is a list of my responsibilities with a small blurb of something I learned during that experience. 
      Here is an example of one of my work experiences:
      Active duty Navy, worked in hospitals on land and sea             Prepared operating room for surgery                 In charge of setting up sterile supplies                 Assisted the nurse and/or PA in positioning the patient on the operating table         Prepped the patient by shaving, washing, and disinfecting the surgical site         Applied sterile surgical drapes on the patient                Passed surgical instruments to the physician                Assisted the physician during the surgery                 Sutured incision site                   Applied wound dressings                   Learned that each member of the operating room team, regardless of education level, plays a vital role in the patient's safety  
      Any advice/experience is much appreciated

      I was wondering if anyone had every considered sending handwritten letters of appreciation after an interview? If so, to whom did you address and send? If not that's totally understandable, I just wasn't sure what the consensus was out in the world. Thank you so much!!
