I am interested in St. Croix. Does anyone know how to apply for this school? Do you just apply to Barry and then select which school you prefer? I am just curious for the next cycle coming up.

When you apply through CASPA, you select which campus you would like to attend under Barry University! Goodluck

I interviewed on Jan 29th for the Miami campus and just heard today (2/2) that I was waitlisted. I'm really trying to stay positive. When I was talking to current students they told me that a lot of their classmates were taken from the waitlist, so there is still a chance!

I was put on the waitlist back in October for St. Croix. I've been just hanging out, hoping to hear something back before August just like everybody else on the list. Selfishly hoping that everybody else waitlisted has found refuge in a different program...

 

Stay strong people.

I was just waitlisted today from an interview last Friday for St.Pete Campus.  Has anyone since been taken off of the waitlist? From what I understand its more of a pool than list process and as spots open the admissions committee gets together and chooses who to offer a spot to.  I would love to get an update from everyone!

I interviewed on this date and was waitlisted as well! I really liked this program and would appreciate any updates as well! :)

I was wait listed back in October from my September interview at the St. Croix Campus. I received a call on March 16th offering me a spot, which I gladly accepted. Good luck to you all! The waiting game is tough!

I interviewed for the waitlist on 1/29 at the Miami Shores campus, was placed on the waitlist, and just received an email a few days ago that I have been accepted off the waitlist!! It's tough waiting to hear back, but all I can say is to stay positive and hopeful! Being put on the waitlist out of the hundreds of applications they received already proves that you do have what it takes to get there and you have to remember this! Good luck to everyone!

Clarkc825,

 

I did not contact them and just waited it out. The waiting game is definitely tough, but my best recommendation is to be hopeful and remember that being on the waitlist already means you have what it takes to get there! I was already getting ready to reapply there again once CASPA opened up because I loved the program so much. The professor I spoke with during my interview said the best thing to do is apply early to guarantee you get an earlier interview for September, spots fill up quick so if you plan on applying again make sure you do this!

 

Best of luck to you all!

Hello everyone! I wanted to get some input on when most of you heard back from Barry. I submitted my CASPA in July and it was verified July 27th. It looks like some of you heard back before October regarding your application as well as interview status. I was wondering if any of ya'll could give me some advice. They have sent a preliminary email stating they have received all of my application info (GRE, CASPA, etc.). I am just SUPER EXCITED!

      Hey everyone, I wanted to get some advice and input from people that have applied/been accepted/are already in PA school. So over the course of the past two months I was invited to interview at three different schools and recently have found out that I was rejected at all of them. I have about 1,500 hours as a CNA at an assisted living facility, 1,500 hours doing direct care with mentally/physically disabled adults, and just started working at a hospital as a nurses aide about two months ago. My GPAs are: 
      -Last 60 credits: 4.0
      -cGPA: 3.91
      -science GPA: 3.97
      -I also have a 4.0 in every pre-requisite that each school required.
      My GRE scores for both sections were a little bit above average, and I got a 4.5 on the writing portion. Not going to lie, I thought I would get into at least two of the three with my GPA, or even waitlisted. I honestly didn't expect to be straight up rejected from all three. I do feel that each of the interviews went fairly well and I answered all of my questions thoroughly. I even had some conversation with the interviewers and felt very comfortable after all of them were complete. I honestly do not know what went wrong and what I can improve at this point. If anyone can give me any advice I would greatly appreciate it.

      Hi I was wondering if anyone ever took the Masters in Medical Science program from UNTHSC before applying for PA school?
      It's a 1 rigorous program.
      I am interested in applying for it to possibly strengthen my application, but I would love some insight from anyone who had taken it too.

      Last week I got my first official application decision of the cycle. Opening the email, I scanned the words frantically until I found the sentence I was fearing the most. It read, “I regret to inform you of the program’s decision not to pursue your application further.” These words translate much more simply to “rejection.”
      For a moment I felt like I couldn’t breathe. I knew that I would be receiving rejections throughout the cycle, but had hoped and prayed it wouldn’t be from this school. Not only was this program one of my top choices, but it is also the only school in my home city. The realization that I would not have the opportunity to interview hit me like a ton of bricks. With GPAs well above the program’s average and my state residency giving me a leg up over other applicants, I felt that I would likely secure an interview. I was wrong.
      After the news, I began to question my application strategy entirely. I chose to apply more intentionally to a handful of carefully selected programs landing on the lower side of things - 6. As the September 1st deadline for many programs was only a few days away I sent my GRE scores off to an additional school that I was going back and forth on, hoping that they would arrive on time. I was relieved to have everything complete with one other program, but I still questioned if 7 would be enough to land me an acceptance or even an interview.
      At this point I was doubting myself, my personal statement, my clinical experiences… everything. I wondered if there were red flags in my application or if I said the wrong things in the answers to the supplemental questions. I tried to stay optimistic, but I was disappointed and feeling insecure. My first rejection was certainly humbling, planting seeds of doubt that were becoming overwhelming.
      And then I saw it. I was eating my lunch and scanning my email when I suddenly read “Invitation to Interview” in the subject line of an email from my top choice. My heart started racing and my palms were sweating. After seeing the date provided, only 3.5 weeks away, I could barely focus enough to read about the interview details. I was ecstatic. Their initial email contained a typo and in a follow up email with a correction the admissions director revealed that I was the very first applicant to be offered an interview. I couldn’t believe it. This school was my reach, and I certainly wasn’t counting on being offered an interview, let alone the first one. I was over the moon.
      Here I am now, in the midst of the cycle with one interview scheduled and one rejection. Things are still up in the air, but I feel that I am at least back in the game. The ups and downs of this roller coaster ride will continue, and I couldn't be happier. Thus far, this process has been unpredictable. Although I have heard this repeated many times here by those wiser than myself, this experience has definitely shown me that there is no such thing as a sure thing when applying to PA school. Don’t be so quick to count yourself in, but also don’t count yourself out.
