Has anyone been called or emailed for interviews to date?  I figured that right after the first class got underway they would start??

karebear12892,  Many of us are wondering when FMU will begin sending out invites for this cycle.  Do you remember when they started last cycle?  I applied last cycle and we talked several time on this blog and I thought it was around Sept 1 or sooner.

rbonz2 - The faculty has not told us anything about the current application cycle. Last cycle, I submitted my application on June 1st (when it opened) and I was in the very first interview group, which took place on September 25th. I was notified about the interview about 4-5 weeks in advance. Based on last year's timeline, you guys should hear something any day now. :)

Just an update for everyone..they are not reviewing apps until december and will be holding two interview sessions in Jan, Feb and march and will be making decisions after march. Hopefully this helps!

So does anyone know if they are still going to be reviewing applications even though they were just put on probation??

 

Email Stated this: 

 

"At its September 2016 meeting, the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) placed the Francis Marion University Physician Assistant program sponsored by Francis Marion University on Accreditation-Probation status until its next validation review in March 2017. 

Probation is a temporary status of accreditation conferred when a program does not meet the Standards and when the capability of the program to provide an acceptable educational experience for its students is threatened. 

Once placed on probation, programs that still fail to comply with accreditation requirements in a timely manner, as specified by the ARC-PA, may be scheduled for a focused site visit and/or risk having their accreditation withdrawn. "

Yes I believe they are going to be operating as business as usual when it comes to selection of candidates.  They are required to let us know their status and I think the reason for the notification.

      Has anyone gotten a phone call about interviewing at Francis Marion University in March? 🙂 I’m scheduled for March 12th, and this will be my first interview. I’m nervous! I’ve been trying to find information about the interview process, but it seems like it’s changed over the years. If anyone has any input or advice, let me know!

      Hi!  I'm very interested in Francis Marion, but I feel their website doesn't provide much information about what makes their program unique.  Were you able to find out anything about this?  Thanks!
