Just received an email about my application status, that it's being processed then heading to admissions. Based on everyone else's timeline, I guess I'll expect to hear something around November haha.

 

 

Me too! I received my application status this morning.

I too received that email this morning saying my application was complete. I was verified mid-July.

 

Hi there, I was just wondering if you had anything outstanding in your app? I haven't submitted my GRE yet because I am planning on retaking it at the end of the month. Do you think that will put my off for receiving any confirmation/ interview invites?

My app was complete as I took the GRE back in June. 

 

 

The email I got said this: "Please be aware that applications without official GRE scores cannot be reviewed. GRE scores may be submitted electronically via ETS utilizing institution code 5053, there is no department code. At this time, you have 30 business days from this notification to have your GRE Scores electronically uploaded by ETS. Please keep in mind that GRE scores take approximately 20 business days from request from ETS to show in our system, so if they have not been requested please do so."

 

So I guess as long as you haven't gotten a confirmation email it's fine but once you do you have 30 days for them to get your scores. I don't think it will put off getting confirmation because it seems like they confirm them even without GRE scores.

Petunia, I'm not sure there's any rhyme or reason to how they do it. I was verified July 13th and just got the confirmation they received my app today, so yours could be right around the corner.

You guys got verified a bit earlier than I did.

That's so weird that they're saying that you need to have them in 30 days after you get confirmed... because when I called them they told me the GRE need to be in 30 days AFTER the deadline.... AHH 

 

I also got CASPA verified on 08/04.... so I probably won't get a confirmation email for a bit.

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. 

 

 

Can anyone speak more on this?

Hey everyone! I have been meaning to post about my application process, and give you some details about the interview... So first off, I was CASPA verified and submitted to Barry on June 30.  I received the application complete email on July 27, and an interview invite on August 13.  I had the interview on Sept. 9th.  Interview was awesome.  Very laid back, writing assignment, group interview, then individual interview.  All the faculty was friendly and welcoming.  I really got the feeling that they truly wanted to just get to know the real you.  Anyways, I received my provisional offer of acceptance on Sept. 13.  On Sept. 16 I declined my spot because I decided to go to a different program.  The only thing I personally did not like about the school were the older facilities.  But other than that, great overall experience.  Best of luck to everyone, hope this post helps some of you.

I received an invitation to interview at Miami today. I was verified mid July and received confirmation my app was received September 28th. I was given the choice of Oct 21, Oct 28, or Nov 4. I chose Oct 21 because I'm local and had already taken that week off work.

Via email. So far (third one) I've only received interview invites by email.

Anybody interviewing this Friday? Due to the hurricane it looks like campus is closed until further notice.

 

 

I'm surprised they haven't emailed to reschedule your interview. I'm in south Florida now and just got finished putting up hurricane shutters. I doubt there's any way they will be open the end of this week.

Hi ! I am a student of the class of 2018 and I attend the St. Petersburg campus. I know that our campus is still holding interviews this Friday, but I cannot speak for Miami or St. Croix.

      As someone who has a noncompetitive GPA, I am considering pursuing a Master's in Biomedical Sciences to show programs that my study habits and academic performance has most certainly improved. 
      -Does anyone know if grades received in a master's program help boost the overall GPA?
      - Would the science courses taken at a grad level count for PA school pre-reqs?
      -Any tips/advice from those that have taken this route?
       
      I appreciate you taking the time to help 🙂

      Hi, everyone!
      What are your thoughts on applying to programs with a ARC-PA probationary accreditation status (i.e., "Accreditation-Probation")?
      I'm a first-time applicant, and a couple schools that I have my eye on currently have probationary statuses (Johnson & Wales University; Monmouth University). I was wondering if it's worth applying to said schools, especially to ones that have had a probationary status for more than two years. 
      Although these schools are still considered accredited, is it safe to apply to & then attend these schools? Do these schools prepare students to become competent & trustworthy healthcare professionals? Are these schools worth the debt? My concern is enrolling in a school with probationary accreditation and graduating as a sub par PA-C, but those are just my uncertain sentiments at the moment. 
      Moreover, I've read that applying to these schools may be advantageous to some who aren't considered "strong applicants" (e.g., average grades/GRE). On the other hand, I've seen "strong applicants" display their admiration & loyalty to these schools here on PA Forum. I'm confused! Let's open up the discussion!

      I am sure this has been asked before, if so, please forward it to me. But when writing out the description and responsibilities of your various experiences, should the format be a list/bullet point or more of a thoughtful written out paragraph? 
      What I have so far (in an excel sheet), is a list of my responsibilities with a small blurb of something I learned during that experience. 
      Here is an example of one of my work experiences:
      Active duty Navy, worked in hospitals on land and sea             Prepared operating room for surgery                 In charge of setting up sterile supplies                 Assisted the nurse and/or PA in positioning the patient on the operating table         Prepped the patient by shaving, washing, and disinfecting the surgical site         Applied sterile surgical drapes on the patient                Passed surgical instruments to the physician                Assisted the physician during the surgery                 Sutured incision site                   Applied wound dressings                   Learned that each member of the operating room team, regardless of education level, plays a vital role in the patient's safety  
      Any advice/experience is much appreciated

      I started a job as a CNA in a hospital shortly after submitting my CASPA application to schools. However, since it is a current position that I plan on staying in until I start a program, how do I maintain my CASPA application, specifically the "number of weeks" section required for the experience? I do not have an acceptance this cycle as of now, and I want to keep schools I haven't heard back from up to date. I don't know whether to put in 52 weeks in that section since I will be there for approximately one year from my start date even if I get into a program this cycle, or just keep updating it every week that goes by? Right now I have 52 weeks in that section with a disclaimer explaining my start date and plans to keep the position until I start a program in the "description/key responsibilities" section under it. Please share your own experiences, I can't be the only one in this dilemma! Thanks in advance 🙂

      I was checking my verified application & I have “Punjabi” listed under “native language”.  On CASPA my response to “first language” was “Punjabi”.   To clarify, I am fluent in English. (I’ve been speaking English since I was 5!! I answered to "first language" quite literally.) Will I run into any problem with PA programs? Would they assume otherwise?   --I was born in California and went to schools K-12 in Cali and then Uni of Cali, Santa Cruz for undergrad. Has anyone else experienced this?
      **The application is locked & I am unable to change it to English**
