Does anyone know if Miami is offering more interviews after January? 

 

I honestly think my GRE killed my application, so I 'm not holding my breath for this program anymore.

Yes, they mentioned that they interview up until February last year. When we spoke to the students, they told us the school will have seats available if they are offering you an interview. Otherwise, they will explicitly tell you you're interviewing for waitlist spot. 

 

Good luck!

I interviewed on January 13th (last Friday) at the Miami campus and was just accepted today! So excited! For those of you who are waiting to hear back, don't give up EVER! Keep trying and applying until you become a PA. Don't settle!

For anyone that's curious, I spoke to Michelle on 1/3. She's still behind on processing applications (still on August apps) but told me they'll be offering interviews through March.

May I ask what your GRE scores were? I know mine is on the lower end. Just curious to see as to what scores were interviewed?

If she gets to my application in time, I'm not sure if I'll be offered an interview but I have quantitative - 152  verbal - 160 analytical writing - 4.0. Don't lose hope. If your application is strong in other areas, the GRE may not sink you!

Mine were 164V 160Q 5.0AW. I was accepted in October, applied first week of July. Their website says competitive scores are over 150 on each with a 3.0 AW.

I got an interview invite yesterday for Miami and turned it down today for another school, so there's definitely still hope! I was an August app if that helps.

Hey everyone!

I interviewed this past Friday (1/20) at the Miami campus and was extremely impressed with the program! Dr. Fien stated that only about half the class is filled and the waitlist is virtually empty. I hope this helps all who are curious about seats remaining and best of luck to everyone!

Hi guys, 

 

From the Barry website: 

"All candidates who successfully complete the Program will be awarded both the Master of Clinical Medical Science degree and the Physician Assistant Certificate."

 

Does anyone know more information about this? Does it matter if they are only offering a PA certificate (along with an MCMS) in terms of employment??

No every program I saw offered some type of masters (masters of science in medicine, master of medical sciences, masters of clinical medical sciences etc) and a pa certificate which allows you to sit for the pance. The only exception was Miami dade program which offered a pa certificate and an associates degree.

No, it does not matter.  However, by 2020 all PA programs are supposed to start having a masters degree in order to be accredited (according to AAPA).  Some programs off different levels.  As of right now you only need the certificate to sit for the exam and practice.

Has anyone else heard anything from St. Pete? Interview, rejection, waitlisted, acceptance?

 

I haven't heard a thing from them ever. Not even an acknowledgement that they received all of my info.

Hey everyone,

 

I spoke to Michelle back on 1/20 and for those that have not yet heard anything regarding interviews she told me that you can hear anything from now until the end of March. She stated there was still seats available so don't give up hope yet!!

 

Good Luck

There's one person, Michelle, processing the 2700 applications for all three sites. Applications are processed in the order in which they were received. When I spoke to her last week she was still on the applications for late August (there were 200 applications for August). Normally there are two people processing applications, which probably explains why the process is slower this cycle.

I applied in august and still haven't heard anything. I even emailed to ask about my application status and did not receive a response. Is anyone else in the same boat?

      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.
