For those of you that received an interview, which campus did you all apply to.... Miami campus, St. Pete, or St. Croix? I was wondering if the varying campuses had different interview schedules. Thanks!

I applied to St. Croix Campus, so if anyone is in my boat, and did not apply to MIA it may just be that they have not started reviews for your campus of choice.

Sorry for the late response guys, I haven't heard anything from Barry yet either. They just told me, my app is under review so hope to hear back from them soon.

 

Ddiaz08, thanks for kindly sharing with us your stats.

St. Petersburg Campus just received my app along with a stack of others 3 days ago. CASPA sent mine to them back on July 11 and my GRE scores arrived 2 weeks later. They have only scheduled for Oct 14, and the next day to offer interviews for is Oct 28 and as of 2 days ago, they had not scheduled a single person for their 2nd interview day. The third interview day is Nov 10th. I am praying I get an invite.

I received my interview invite 2 weeks ago and scheduled it for Nov. 4th for the Miami Shores campus. I'm sure you all will be hearing something soon. Good luck everyone!

Got an interview for Saint Croix campus November 4th! So excited! Never been to St. Croix, anybody have any advice. I think I'm staying at Sand Castle on the Beach, it's the cheapest room I could find. If anybody else is staying there or nearby let me know.

I live on St. Croix and it is a really beautiful island. I think you will enjoy what you see. See you Nov 4!

CONGRATS to all who got an interview!!! Wish you the best whenever it may be and keep us all posted. :)

 

I'm getting a little worried, I still haven't heard anything from them. I email Michelle a while back but not response, I'm guessing since they might be busy. What would you all suggest who has gotten an interview or got accepted or others, think I should do, should I call them to ask them about my app status?!?

 

Little worried on why I haven't gotten an email or been called for an interview invite. Would anyone who interview share any stats information with me. GPA, GRE, HC, Etc...

 

If anyone can help, would appreciate it for any information. This can be done via PM, if you don't want to make it public.

 

 

Thanks.

4u2nv1313, I haven't heard anything from Barry either. I submitted my CASPA Application on August 30th, and it was mailed on September 23rd. When did you submit?

I'm thinking of calling Barry on Monday.

Hey haha, I'm actually staying at Hotel on the Cay now, got a room for $86 a night, but it looks a bit far from Sunshine Mall on the map. I really don't want to rent a car to save on costs, but do you think I should now? Or would taxi service be ok? Thanks for any advice you can give, glad someone living on the island is on here. By the way, my name is Jenny F. so you can identify me at the interview. I'm a tall blonde.

Physhgrl37, I would definitely suggest that you rent a car because taxi's can take a a while to flag down (it all depends on the time of day). A taxi can take you to where the interview is taking place (Sunshine Mall), but I would rent a car so I could be in complete control of getting to the interview on time. If you are coming in a day early I can take you to where we will be interviewing so you will not have trouble finding it. I visited Barry Monday so I know exactly where to go. Let me know. I know it can be scary being in a new place so I don't mind helping. The island is small so it doesn't take hours to get around.

haha, thank you so much. You're already a ton of help. I will definitely be renting a car. I'm not flying out till Sunday so I can explore the island on Saturday anyway. with it. Thanks for offering to show me where Sunshine Mall is but the earliest flight I could get in touches down at 9pm on Thursday night so I'm afraid that would probably be a bit too late for you. I think I'll try to find it one my way from the airport to the hotel and then wake up super early on Friday to make sure I get there on time. 14 days to go!

I need help guys! I am trying to find the supplemental application for Barry on their website, but I cannot. I made a "barry account", and then I click on apply now, but PA is not on the graduate list to select. What am I doing wrong? I have contacted Barry via email and phone, but no response yet. Please someone help me!!! Thanks!
