I received an acceptance call yesterday morning as well! Very excited to meet everyone! 

I was accepted last week over the phone. Any advice about places to live? I have a dog and haven't been able to find any pitbull friendly apartments. Really excited to meet everyone moving forward!

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. :)

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manner, as specified by the ARC-PA, may be scheduled for a focused site visit and/or risk having their accreditation withdrawn. "

      Hi everyone, I did not see a thread for this year so I went ahead and made one! I submitted my CASPA on May 14th and then my supplemental app on May 18th. Haven’t heard anything yet. How about everyone else?

      Hello everyone!  I am in my 2nd semester of PA school and am in search of preceptors in my area. I live in Greenville, SC and currently commute to Hendersonville, NC for class which is about 40 minutes each day. Because of this, I am really hoping to find preceptors closer to home.
      I am currently in search of any preceptors in Greenville, Travelers Rest, Greer, Mauldin, Easley, Powdersville, Taylors, and really anywhere in the north west South Carolina area! 
      If you or anyone you know is interested in taking on a PA student who is super eager to learn and be in the upstate area, please let me know! 
      Thank you so much.

      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!
