Starting this thread since no one else has...

 

I submitted my app 6/6/16 and got an informational email 2 days later, thanking me for my interest in the program. My app is still verifying though but they seem prompt in getting back to applicants.

I'm also debating on applying here. One thing holding me back is that they take principles of medicine III after clinicals which seems odd to me. Does anyone have any info on this? I think it looks like a good program though and I like that they offer medical nutrition therapy

I'll be applying too, although it seems like it's difficult to get much information about the program as compared to other PA programs.  I'll go where I can get in but it's not my number one choice.

They have rolling admissions so it's starting to get later in the cycle, but I wouldn't worry yet if you submit in the next week or so. Also, this thread has been relatively quiet so I'm not sure if they have even started reviewing applications yet. I say go for it if you submit soon!

Thanks a lot for moral support

Does anyone know why Drew's PA program is starting up again? I have seen other posts about people that graduated from Drew previously, but cant seem to find why it stopped and is just starting up again.

I think it used to be a certificate program, and shut down to become a masters? Not 100% sure.

I believe Drew admits on a rolling basis. As soon as they get to review your application AND you fit what they want, you will get a interview that will be between oct-feb. From looking at previous years, I think that's how it works. Good luck.

Hi everyone! I interviewed here last year and was pretty impressed by the program. I just wanted to share that I got my interview invite in my SPAM folder! Please be sure to check it, I almost missed my date for accepting!

Good luck!

The clinical medicine III is part of the extra semester they offer after clinical year in order to prepare you for the PANCE and clinical practice. That's one of the things I love about their program is the fact that they offer the extra semester to prepare you for your boards and transitioning into the real world. Another perk is the nutrition certification (CNSC) you get and the course on diabetic nutrition therapy.

Were not allowed to say. Interviewees had to sign nondisclosure agreements. All I can say was it was fun and the faculty and staff are super nice.

That sounds awesome then! Do clinical medicine I and II cover all the systems then? and clinical medicine III is a review? And I really love that they offer those courses in nutrition, I have a few friends who are dietitians and talking to them has really made me realize how much nutrition integrates into treatment of patients.

We haven't received our syllabus yet so I'm not sure exactly what the curriculum consists of. I would suggest contacting the program with any questions you may have and if you are able, attend one of the information sessions. Best of luck !!!

Sorry, we had to sign a nondisclosure agreement to not talk about anything about the interview. It was a very long day, but the faculty was really nice and answered all my questions. Good luck!

After researching, I just applied to the program ( Hope I'm not too late in the game).  I talked to this school's MPH program a few years ago at a pre-health conference =) 
Also, I noticed only 26 applicants were accepted last cycle. Is CDU planning on expanding this number this year?

I think they are keeping the numbers low to make sure the students last cycle do well. Its their first class so they would want to keep a stellar passing rate.

Don't know if anyone knew this or not but I got to talk to admissions and they said that they have one interview day a month from oct-jan. (4 interview days total) they will invite about 30 applicants on each of those days and start filling their 26 seats on a rolling admission. I didn't know this was the process. I hope this helps those that may have been curious.

Did anyone else get an email regarding a 3 credit Medical Terminology course? The university I attended only does 1 credit for Medical Terminology, I emailed them back regarding the matter but I have not received a reply yet.

Can't speak for the school, but from the previous class, we had to find a course that was 3 credits in order to fulfill the requirement. Many were in the same boat as you, but had to find another class to take at another school.

It is one of those courses that I am taking this fall as a class in progress. Drew is the only program I applied to that has medical terminology as a prereq. But they are my first choice so I'll do what I gotta do, and I'm sure the class will be very enriching.

 

Also, I can't be 100% sure but I was told about 2000 applications are submitted as of last Friday. I'm assuming that most if not all have 3 units for that class. that means there are 2000+ applications for 26 seats. If you don't meet the requirements, I don't think you have a chance. Just my opinion. There are many community colleges that offer it. That's what I'm doing because my university does not have it :(

For anyone looking to complete a 3-credit Medical Terminology class, I took an online Medical Terminology course at Metropolitan Community College.

Seems like Drew has been pretty quiet lately from the comments (or lack thereof) on this forum. :P

 

Does anyone know approximately how long it takes Drew to confirm receipt of application? I submitted my application on 8/5/16 and have not received any e-mail from Drew. Would you guys recommend to call? I know it has only been a week, but it feels like forever. LOL.

 

 

Thanks in advance! :)

I submitted my application 6/24 and received a confirmation email from Drew on 7/2 if that helps any! I haven't heard anything from them since...

Thanks, geenamar! That definitely calms down the cabeza a bit. It sounds like it takes about 1-2 weeks. I'll just have to continue taking my chill pill for the next few days. lol.

Finally received a confirmation email. At this point, I wonder if we're late in the game. However, reading through last year's thread it seemed like people who submitted later during the year were still hearing good news from Drew. So, I'm hoping Drew has similar timeline this year.
