For those who are concerned or unclear with the provisional accreditation status (like I was initially haha), I spoke with the Dean of the program for more clarification and she reassured me that you will be able to sit for the PANCE. If the pass rates are low for the PANCE, the accreditors will ask the program to develop a remediation plan to address the low pass scores. Personally, I think the program is structured very well for students to be successful and there is a strong emphasis on PANCE preparation integrated into the curriculum (at least that was my impression during the interview).

 

Anyways, I figured it was important to share this information because I myself was unfamiliar with provisional accreditation. Also, I plan on attending the program (was accepted early December) so I look forward to meeting future classmates! Best of luck to everyone! :)

Thank you, this is very helpful! I didn't apply here this year because I was concerned about their accreditation status. However, if I'm not accepted into a program this year, I will definitely be applying here next year. Seems like a wonderful program! And in a great location too...

Sorry for the confusion you guys. I'll try to copy the exact text from the email I got this morning.

 

"Thank you for your interest in attending the School of Physician Assistant Studies at Marshall B. Ketchum University.

 

After review of your application, the Admissions Committee has decided to place you on the "Wait List" for an interview.The competition was intense and we found ourselves unable to offer an invitation for an interview to all strong applicants.

 

We will notify you if there is a change in your status. Please do not contact the admissions office about your position on the list as we cannot disclose how many applicants are on the Alternate list and your position."

How did you find out about the rank of the waitlist !? Did they tell you in an email or did you call?

@ElleArginine, I loved MBKU, but unfortunately had to make the difficult decision of declining my acceptance offer due to an acceptance at another program. I hope this frees up a spot for someone else! Good luck to everyone, and happy holidays :)

So there are 7 of us on it (so far)? I'm hoping that the waitlist is about 20 people deep. Wish we knew the rank :/ but good luck everyone! Have any of you interviewed or been accepted elsewhere?

I have been waitlisted at another school for an interview....I haven't interviewed anywhere else, and am still waiting to hear from a few more schools. How about you??

      Hello, I am having a lot of trouble trying to narrow down schools to apply to. Where I currently live, most of the schools nearby I cannot apply to because of my stats so I am seeking out of state options. I am ending my sophomore year so I still have another year before I can begin applying (and another year to continue to boost my GPA). Any help would be appreciated!
       GPA currently: 3.426 ( My last semester has not been added in still and my science GPA would be similar)
      I am not taking Ochem 2 or biochem but I have planned/taken genetics, cell bio, microbio, ochem 1, 2 semesters of general bio and 2 semesters of general chem, med term, med ethics, anatomy, physiology, and most other pre-reqs. My main issue is that I have AP credit for statistics that my university accepts for my BS degree but I have noticed that there are some PA schools that do not accept that. I am also extremely involved  and by the time I apply, I will have a high number of service/leadership hours (President of my schools Pre-PA Association, chapter correspondent and philanthropy committee for my sorority, recruitment chair for the universities Relay for Life, and involved in other orgs). I have worked as a nursing assistant at the city's major hospital for over a year and I am seeking another job as a scribe in the ER. I have not begun shadowing yet because of COVID affecting my summer opportunities. 
      If you have experience in applying or likes/dislikes of literally any schools, I would appreciate it! I am not trying to decide on a school right now, I am simply trying to gain insight on potential schools to apply to since the ones near me are not options (Ohio/Michigan area). I have started a detailed list of schools I have researched, but I am struggling to find realistic options and those that I would be able to apply to.
      Thanks!

      Hey good people! I hope you’re all well and healthy during this COVID-19 outbreak. Just wanted to start this early and see your progress on the 2020-21 PA applications!

      Hi, I was looking around on google and couldn’t find any direct information, but I was curious if anyone has a comprehensive list of schools that have waived the GRE due to the current situation afflicting our nation? Any information would be great. Thanks!
