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!

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?

      My CASPA application was recently verified 2 weeks ago. However, I am still completing some applications on CASPA and I was wondering how to go about updating my current HCE experience? I have a full-time job, so I already accumulated about 80 hours since my application was verified. Do I need add new HCE experience (with the same description) that is already listed as "till date"? Also, how do you update current experience (if at all)? Do you write the start time from which you started the job or the start date from which you last updated that type of experience from when the application was verified?

      Hello Everyone, 
      I am finishing up my achievements section under CASPA and I have a lot of scholarships to include. I have more than 15 scholarships, some merit based and some need based. I don't know if I should include dollar amounts on the description. Some are as small $500 and some as high as $35K. I'm not sure the amounts are appropriate or relevant. I am honestly very proud of all of them because even a couple bucks helped me a great deal so I'm okay with listing. What is your take on this?

      Hello,
      I'm having a little panic session right now. I submitted one application and realized I did not add the last name for a PA that I shadowed in my experience section. Is this gonna be a major issue for my application? I thought CASPA meant that I couldn't edit the submitted application but that I could still edit the ones I had not yet submitted and now I realize I can't. Are schools going to fault me for this?

      Hello all!
      I’m relatively new to this site and it’s my first time posting. I recently submitted my applications and I received an email yesterday from a school about my grade in Orgo 1. I got a C- (ugh. I know) and they said that they couldn’t substitute Orgo 2 for that requirement. They asked if I would be interested in retaking the course which I am interested in doing if it’ll increase my chances of getting in. 
      My question is: how do I go about adding that to my application if I’m not taking the class until the fall? Should I call each program I applied to and tell them my intention of retaking it or should I just add it to my transcript on CASPA saying it’s in progress even though it won’t start until August?
      Thanks in advance!

      Hi! Does anyone know of any programs that once required the GRE and are now no longer requiring it this year due to COVID? I wanted to apply to a few more schools but haven’t taken the GRE. Thanks!
