Hey all,

 

CASPA open up soon, so I thought I'd open up this topic.

 

I am a member of the class of '18 at Miami Shores. I interviewed at a few places last year that had the class above take care of communications related things, so I figured I'd follow suit. Also, for the accepted class into the Miami campus, one (or a few of us) will create your page so that we can answer any questions that you may have (Moving has been the most daunting issue for most of us).

 

I'll be here for any questions. So feel free to PM me :D Of course, take multiple views into account, not just mine.

 

Best of luck to everybody applying this cycle.

Thank you for starting this thread. 

 

I had a question as far as which campus to apply too. I know all three campuses are highly competitive, but is there one campus that is easier to get into over the rest?

I am definitely no expert but I can answer from my experiences.  I think this question is hard to answer because each campus has something a little different to offer.  Miami shores admits more students (52) compared to St.Croix (24) and St.Pete (24), although all campuses receive the same lectures.  Keep in mind though, Miami may be more sought after.  On the other hand, many students like the St.Croix campus because of location and the fact that it produces a lot of NHSC recipients.  St.Pete is also a sought after area and the class size is smaller so it may be more difficult to grab a spot.  In any sense, I think they are all equally difficult.

As Clarkc825 very well stated, each campus has their own strengths. If you're talking about requirements in terms of academically, I remember seeing that the other campuses (not miami) had stricter requirements. But don't let that draw you solely to Miami. The campus has the draw of being near the city and working with urban populations, which many find desirable. Also, rent is ridiculously high.

 

Definitely do a little soul searching and researching before you determine which campus fits your personality best. :)

Congrats! I applied for the Miami campus a few weeks ago, are we to receive an email stating they received all of our materials, or will the next email be if they decide to invite us for an interview or not?

Hey all,

 

I had a question regarding letters of recommendation. On the Barry web site it states that we need a letter of rec from academicians. I can not tell if this is suggested or required. I have 5 letters of rec and they are from PAs, doctors, and a supervisor. Below is the direct quote from the site. If anyone has any feedback regarding if this is a make or break whether we have to have a letter of rec from a academician or not please let me know.

 

"Submitted three letters of recommendation, (from clinical work supervisors or clinical coworkers, and academicians)"

 

Thanks!

Barry has been really good about responding to emails and calls.  It's probably best you contact them directly for an anser to that question IMO.

So this is common for many places you may or may not apply to. Just in case, academician is a professor from one of your classes that you took. Preferably a pre-req (which I presume you knew all this). Although you are certainly free to call Michelle and ask, my experience has been that if a school states something in writing/on their website (e.g. GPA minimum, pre-reqs, minimal HCE) then they will not settle for anything less than that.

 

Best of luck.

I heard from a Barry student that they don't send out any confirmation email. He said the first email he got from them was to invite him for an interview. They may have changed it since then but that's what I've been told.

Hey thanks for the info! Quick question, I see you said you got your acceptance letter on 10/13, what day was your actual interview?

My interview was 10/09. So the response for accepted students was really fast. The wait list, from my understanding was much more daunting. I don't want to spread misinformation about that but I can ask and see if anybody from my class who was waitlisted would be willing to respond

Awesome thank you so much for the reply! I just wanted to know how fast the response time was after you had your interview so you answered my question!

If the campus I apply to is full or only has a few spots left but thinks I am still a good candidate, will they send my application over to other campuses that have spots open? Or are the campuses not related in any way

You should give the admissions advisor a call but I don't believe it works like that. I think the campus you apply to is the only one who will review your application and if it get denied that is the end of that

My application was verified on 06/08 by CASPA then on 06/30 I received an email from Barry stating that they have received all of my information and nothing is missing. The email went on to say that interviews will begin in September 2016 and final decisions will be made by March 2017 (or sooner).

I'm in the same boat as you. Never received an email stating they have my application. I will wait till the end of August and then reach out to them.
