Hi everyone! I thought we could all update each other on our wait list status for the 2015-2016 cycle. I just got an email today saying I am on the wait list. My interview was 1/15. Good luck to everyone!

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!

      Hi all!! Congrats to everyone who got invited for an interview for AACC/UMB this year! I'm so excited! I've never applied to PA school before, and AACC is the only school I was able to apply to (due to finances, proximity to home, etc.) Have any of you been through this interview process before? What can we expect? Also, how are you all preparing for Interview Day? Can't wait to meet everyone! Good luck to all!

      I believe invites for Anchorage interviews were around this time last year (based on last years ANC forum feed). Starting this topic for news, collaboration and support. Good luck to all.

      What are my chances to get into a PA program? What programs would accept me? Or should I apply to post bacc/ or masters program? 
      I have a 2.88 GPA. BS in Human Biology. I have not taken the GRE. I am 26yrs Female AA. I have well over 1000 hours of clinical experience (paid, nonpaid/volunteer).
      I currently took a leave of absence from my position as a High-school science teacher, to take Biochemistry, Epidemiology and study for MCAT (plan on applying to Master of Biomedical to gain acceptance into DO school which is my ultimate dream). I am also considering PA school 
      MY  Letters Of Recommendation is from a  Chief PA at a  hospital and 2 MDs that are Directors  of Hospital. 
       
      I want to remain hopeful but my dreams seem like they are drifting further away from me each day. I need advice.

      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.
