So Barry awards a Master of clinical medical science and a PA CERTIFICATE. Does the certificate affect your chances of getting employment in the states? I know most programs award a masters of physician assistant studies.

For those who are interested in timeline information:

 

June 16 - Submitted CASPA to Barry Miami (they already had my GRE scores prior to me submitting my CASPA app to them).

August 24 - Received "Application Status" e-mail stating I had nothing missing from my application.

August 30 - Received interview invitation email. Was given three dates from which to choose; September 9th, 16th, and 23rd. I chose September 9th.

August 30 - Received confirmation e-mail for September 9th interview date.

 

So for those who have not heard anything yet, hang tight, as I did not receive a confirmation e-mail that all my materials had been received util two and a half months AFTER I submitted. Every school is different. I've gotten interview invites the next day after I submitted to a few weeks after, so it just depends on the school/program. Best of luck to all! You are all amazing! :-)

Hi guys! So I interviewed this past Friday, August 26th at the Miami Campus and absolutely LOVED it (submitted CASPA on June 1st and confirmed June 30th). The entire process made you feel very welcomed and the way it was organized was great. Super happy to say I got an accept letter today via email!!

so in regards to sending GRE scores, isnt that how it was done for the rest of the schools? The process was no different and I sent them all through the ETS site, but the others showed up as "sent" on CASPA. Anyways, I emailed them and never got a response

Nope - CASPA doesn't accept the scores for Barry.  I know it is confusing- but this is the only school where I sent them directly to the school:

 

  • Taken the Graduate Record Examination (GRE); the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT)will not be substituted for the GRE; applicants whose GRE scores are more than 5 years old must re-take the GRE and submit more recent scores. GRE scores must to be sent directly to the university by ETS to institutional code 5053, departmental code 0634 before the application is submitted. Applications without Official GRE scores will remain in pending status until they are received. GRE scores must be submitted no later than 30 business days after receipt of notification from Admissions Office

The scores go directly to the Barry program, they will not show up on CASPA.  I also have yet to receive any notification that my scores or CASPA application were received.  I emailed them, and like you, haven't gotten a response.  This is for the St. Pete campus.

Hey all,

 

I'm sure you're all quite anxious and excited. Us 18's are starting to get in the thick of exams, so bear with me.

 

For those of you that have been accepted (at least to Miami), eventually a facebook group will be made for you after there's a confirmation of your roster. It may take some time as the roster is continuously changing (there were a few kids who were pulled off the waitlist literally DAYS before orientation even started). I'm sure that the Croix and Pete will have a fb page made by 18s from your respective classes.

 

There's a few days respite, so ask away and I'll try and respond asap. Best of luck

The only email I ever got, as a response to one I sent on 7/20 regarding my GRE scores (didn't know they wouldn't show up so I emailed to double check). I was verified July 10 and haven't received a confirmation email from them after this.

So basically they told you nothing :( I haven't received any type of confirmation from them and my caspa was verified early July. I want to know if they received my gre scores too because they got sent to Barry, but didn't have a departmental secondary code. And of course, no emails back. Frustrating :/

I applied to the St. Croix campus- I'm assuming they do all of their interviews at the same time as other campuses (because we video'd them during that morning)- I just got back from my interview and the upperclassman I believe said we were the second round

For St. Pete Campus: 
 

I received an e-mail on 06/30/2016 to inform me that I was missing nothing on my application and that it has been sent to the admission review committee, however I have heard nothing since. I was informed by in the same e-mail that interviews would begin in September 2016 and final decisions would be made in March 2017. Good luck to all applicants that are applying, fingers crossed we get interviews soon.

      Hello, this is my first time posting on this website and am hoping to get some help. I just made a profile on the CASPA website recently. When I went to look for these two programs I am interested in I could not find them. Do programs not show up until certain times during the year? Thank you in advance.

      When should someone create a CASPA application? It’ll be a couple years before I start applying as I’m still trying to get my pre-requisites under my belt. 
      I thought it’d be a good idea to start one now and add as I go along? Any thoughts?

      Hi all, new here! Thanks in advance for the help! 
      I'm under the impression that you aren't supposed to include experience that you received academic credit for in the experience section. If that is the case, why is there a "received academic credit" option to select for experiences?
      From my previous healthcare degree, I did a number of internships and a residency program that I received academic credit for but on my transcript, it just says "internship hours" or "practicum hours" and provides no detail about the experience.
      Can I list the details of the experiences (as they were electives and unique to me rather than my academic program) and check the "received academic credit" box?
      For example, I elected to do an internship in a hospital in China and an integrative medicine residency program at a US hospital, I was credited "hours" from my graduate program, but there is no mention of the experiences on the transcripts. If I don't list them under experience, neither will be visible on my application. Do I just talk about them in my personal statement? What would you do in this situation?
      In general, I feel like I could use some guidance navigating CASPA with my unusual background (I have a Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) and am lacking access to an advisor . Any recommended resources? 
      THANK YOU!!
    • By MGracier
      CASPA failed to process my application before the deadline of October 1. They apparently had an issue processing the COVID—19 Transcript Delay Form. I checked in both through phone and email, and still, they failed to verify prior to the deadline. I submitted all material July. 
      has anyone else had this issue? 
    • By TreyFL20
      Here is a link to a google sheets that I have created to more easily access information on each of the schools in Florida and the requirement standards for acceptance or preference. All programs were retrieved from Stetson University website: https://www.stetson.edu/artsci/pre-health/physician-assistant.php , and all program details listed on the google sheet were obtained through each programs website URL in the Stetson link provided. I hope this can help anyone who finds it hard to look up this information and compare and contrast each of the programs, as it has for me.
      Note: The Prerequisite list does not always include if the lab is required. I have listed Hours next to some courses where permitted, and If the course required a lab I did not always list it, but instead just listed the hours included. Example: Microbiology is a 3hr course for me, So when I see that it is listed as 4hrs, I know that this means a Lab must be taken for that class. 
      If anyone has any extra questions, Please do let me know, and I will try to answer. 
      If I have left out anything or made any mistakes, Please let me know and I will fix them ASAP, but I feel that it is accurate at this point, with regards to all sections except the "Average acceptance GPA", as this information was harder for me to find.
