Hey guys I was accepted to the St. Croix campus a few months back. Did anyone start a facebook page by chance? Also, has anyone else had difficulty with contacting admissions?

Thanks!

Hi Guys!

 

I turned in my CASPA application in August and was invited to interview at Barry (STX campus) in October. I interviewed on 11/18 and heard back 3 days later that I was accepted. I'm currently living in Colorado, so that's gonna be a big move for me, but I am stoked! Loved the people I met and the island was awesome (obviously). I've paid my deposit and am planning to move down there to start school in August 2017. Still trying to convince my wife to move away from her family for a couple years and what better place than to live on an island in the Caribbean, right? I've got another interview set up as a plan B in case she doesn't want to move down there after all, but right now the plan is to be there in July and/or early August. Looking forward to meeting you all!

jwrona, I haven't had any trouble being in contact with Michelle from the PA program. She's helped answer some of my preliminary questions. Congrats on the acceptance!  Do you know when you are planning to move down to the island?

I interviewed in St. Croix on 11/18 and received my acceptance email today!! I am so unbelievably excited and cannot wait to meet my fellow classmates!

 

Congrats! I interviewed the same day you did! I got my acceptance letter a few days later as well. Now I just have to convince the wife and kiddos to move to a tropical island for a few years. Shouldn't be too difficult... right?

I actually live in Colorado too! Would you want to meet up before the big move?? Also, have you been calling Michelle or emailing her?

Sure! The more people my wife can meet and if we already have some established friends the easier it might be to help her make her decision about moving down there. I live in Grand Junction, CO - where do you live?  I've called Michelle a couple times and got a response that way. I did have some trouble getting her to respond to emails now that I think about it. I'm sure she is slammed with admissions process still in full swing...

Does anyone know if the Miami Campus seats are filled? I am an out of state applicant and if anyone knows, I would appreciate it if they could let me know. Thank you all!

^^  I doubt Miami is full.  I just got the invitation to interview today

 

I was verified towards the end of July.  Today I got an invitation to interview January 13th

 

However, I am declining my interview because I am already registered to another PA school for fall

May I ask when you received an email saying your application was under review? Congrats on getting into school!

I spoke to Michelle over the phone yesterday she said they plan on holding at least 4 more interviews through next year for the Miami campus. I know they interview through Feb. Hope this helps!

Does anyone know if the St. Pete campus is full? I just received an invitation to interview in January and am really interested in this school!

I'm not sure if it is full. However, I got accepted at St. Pete and am not going to attend- so there is one extra spot! 

Good luck!

For accepted students, how long has it taken you to get the background check and fingerprinting done? The cost of the package itself was $130 and I'm looking at another $20 to just get the fingerprints done. I bought the package yesterday and will have my fingerprints postmarked before the deadline but it won't be reflected I'm assuming until after.

It took about a month for my fingerprints and background check to be completed. I think the website says it can take up to six weeks. As long as they're submitted before the deadline you're okay!

I'm not really sure what the deadline is. I paid for my full deposit 11/28 and then got confirmation my fingerprints were received 12/7. Now I'm just waiting for them to be processed.

Hey Everyone,

 

I received my email from Michelle stating that my application is under review on 12/5 (Miami Campus) and I still have not heard anything since then. Any insight on when I might here something? Congrats to those who got accepted!!!

 

Thank you

Hey y'all!

I'm heading to an interview at the St. Croix campus on Jan. 12th. Super curious... does anyone know if the class is full yet? Or if it's close to full. I feel like I'm late in the game.

Thanks!

MK

Hello all,

 

Did anyone apply while you were still finishing pre-reqs? My undergrad GPA is 3.6, and so far, my pre-reqs have been all As except for one class. I live really close to the St. Pete campus, and I was thinking to apply with the hopes of being wait listed for this upcoming cycle. Do you think it's a long shot or should I give it a try? 

 

I took the GRE in 2013: 55th percetile, 50th percentile, 85th percentile (writing is a God-given talent!)

 

Regardless, I plan to apply for the next cycle as well. Any suggestions???

 

Thanks!

KM

 

Also, does anyone know if the St. Pete campus is full for this upcoming cycle?

Curious how many people have been accepted to the Miami campus. I have an interview mid January and wondering how many spots are actually left. If anyone knows anything let me know!

      5 years ago my wife and I participated in a sweat equity program to help build our current home and 4 other homes in our neighborhood. I'm wanting to include this experience since it involved helping others in my community that fell within a certain lower income bracket, but I want to label it correctly in CASPA. My current thinking is that I can mark it as "volunteer" and also check that it was "compensated." Even though we didn't receive any money, we built equity in our home by building it ourselves along with the help of the other families. Does this sound ok? Or should I label it as something else completely?
      Thank you!

      All,
      Just wanted to let you know from last years experience so you don't have the same issue. 
      Background:  Wanted to hit the Aug 1 deadlines, so submitted  and was verified prior to deadline.
      Had transcripts and other items from summer that arrived at CASPA after application was verified.
      Two Items to note:
      1 - Any grades after verification will not be updated into the GPA calculation (I can understand that).
      2 - CASPA will update the file, however if you submit another application, CAPSA sends the original file to the school - Not the updated one.
           YOU will need to inform the school to go get the UPDATED file, otherwise they will still see your original file.
      I did not know this and may have missed out on schools looking at what I thought was an updated file only to find out later, that they were not seeing the updated version.  If I would have known this, I may have either waited (missed the Aug deadline) or more than likely told the schools they had to go into the system to see the latest file (CASPA's advice).
      I found this out too late for last years cycle....Posting this so others may avoid this.
      Good Luck!

      I just had all of my transcripts uploaded by CASPA. And, I’ve approved them, but do I have to match the prerequisites to the programs or will CASPA do that for me if I opt out? Thx

      Just wondering if anyone knows how long (in general) it takes for a mailed transcript to be sent to and processed by CASPA? I submitted an order through parchment last Friday. The status reads "Delivered", but I've yet to see anything in CASPA.

      I have requested letters of recommendation from 3 people (a PA, a previous manager, and a former professor). The professor has told me that he may not get the letter done in time due to his busy schedule. I asked another professor if she could and she has agreed.
      My dilemma is that I know professor 1 will be able to write a much better LOR than professor 2. Let's say that they both end up writing the LORs and get them submitted on time. The schools I am applying to only require 3 LORs. Does anyone know which one would be disregarded? Would it go in the order that I sent the requests out? Or would it go by the order of which the LORs are actually received by CASPA? I wouldn't want professor 2's letter to take the place of professor 1's unless professor 1 were not able to submit the LOR in time.
