M717, when did you interview last year? I have an interview on the 30th of November, and wondering if it is worth my while to fly from Cali there just to potentially be waitlisted without the possibility of being accepted. (Still going!)

Orangecounty, I am from California too and I will be interviewing December 7th. I interviewed last year in February, which was basically to be interviewed on the waitlist because their class was filled at that point. November is early so you have a chance to get in. I actually wanted to interview November 30th but all the seats were filled.

Just FYI -

 

Good : Salus has regained it's accreditation this year! Gained some really good faculty from Arcadia 

 

Bad : Attrition rate for our class is around 10%. Our new program director is making a lot of new rules to make sure we have a good PANCE rate. There will be a cumulative final at the end of didactic year that you need to pass or else you have to repeat 1st year. Also, if you fail more than one PAEA EOR exam, you get kicked out as well.

Hi guys! Can anyone who has already interviewed tell me what time the interviews have been ending?

I believe I was done around 1 but plenty of people were done sooner.

I was done at 12.45pm if I wanted to skip the free lunch with students. But its worth the stay, and we were finished by 1.30pm. I interviewed on 11/9, and I got the acceptance email today! So excited to meet the rest of the class!

I applied to Salus in August and I have not heard back or anything. Do i still have a chance? Many are getting interviewed or accepted.

ogej--Most my my interview group were done by noon, then we had lunch with several students from 12-1. Two of us had our interview with a member of admissions after lunch, so I was done around 1:30.

 

pa17--I spoke with a few students who'd mentioned that they knew one or two people who interviewed in February last year and still made it in. I don't know when they applied and were able to schedule their interview, though.

 

Just got my acceptance letter today! Interviewed on 11/2. Best of luck, everyone.

I have canceled my 11/23 interview with Salus as I was accepted to another program. Just wanted to give you guys a heads up in case someone wanted to interview sooner, there's now a spot open! Good Luck!!

Does anyone know how the waitlist works for Salus? If it is ranked or if they just go back through and decide in February?

I was put on standby last year and my general understanding was that standby was ahead of waitlist. Basically meaning that you must move from waitlist to standby list before you are offered a seat. I was on standby from January until the early summer when they said that they don't expect any more seats to open up and to reapply. Thankfully I interviewed again and got my acceptance letter on Friday

      Is anyone else applying to this school? It recently received provisional accreditation and I am excited that it is a new program in Maryland. Even though it is not developing anymore, there is no section under MD for the school.

      Hello Fellow EM colleagues,
      I am a new graduate who will be starting in the emergency department this month. I am extremely excited to return to the ED after having worked in the ED as a technician for 6 years. I am looking for any recommendations on studying material, reference books, bootcamps etc anything that will help begin my career in EM. Thank you so much for any feedback!!!
