Massachusetts: Bay Path University 2016-2017

Recommended Posts

I went to an open house and I found it to be very informative. They do not start looking at applications until after October 1. They also use a point system in regards to making sure all the applicant criteria is meant. Sometimes they round up the GPA if it is already about the 3.0 minimum requirement. They do individual review of apps, then they do a group review of applicants as well. They do not email acceptances they make a phone call which is nice! There is a supplemental app with a fee. No GRE required. I hope this is helpful to people.

Good Luck to you all!

This is very helpful! Thank you! Can you explain more about the point system you mentioned? Also, did they mention what the GPA for the last incoming class was? Thanks again!

Wow, and I felt bad for nervous laughing ;-)

I have my fingers crossed for both of us!

There was a group discussion, mini one on one interview, and like 5 other stations. Each room had an index card or paper with a situation on it. There were scenarios and you just have to jump in and diffuse the situation (act/talk while sitting accross a table), or say what you would do if you were in a situation described. I can't say what they were because we are asked not to. However, I can say that I didn't have to have any medical knowledge just my honest opinions and customer service skills came in handy.

Hey all, I also received an invitation to interview on November 13th! It will come quick! I have an MMI at another program in December so this is great advice! 

 

How are you guys preparing for Bay Path's Interview? Do you know what interview process they use? 

 

I know there are only 30 seats for the entering class, does anyone know how many interviewees are invited and how many interview dates there are? 

 

Thanks in advance!

      Hi!
      My name is Shelby, I am a medical assistant at a private orthopedic practice in San Mateo, CA. I have acquired over 3,000 hours of patient care experience and healthcare experience in this position. Our office is currently looking for pre-PA students to fill two available staff positions. The first is a MA/CNA position. The second is an administrative assistant position, which has the potential to move up into a MA/CNA role. Certification (CNA, MA) and experience is preferred for both positions, but not required. 
      As a small practice, we have a great team approach to patient care. You will have the opportunity to work closely with the PA and orthopedic surgeon. Many job duties allow you to be present in the room during patient visits so you can become familiar with the PA scope of practice. Additionally, both the orthopedic surgeon and PA are excellent mentors and educators. If you are eager to learn more about orthopedics and medicine in general, they are always willing to share their expertise. 
      If you live in the Bay Area or are looking to move to the Bay Area, this is a great opportunity to prepare you for PA school. Below is the job listing for both positions. 
      https://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/hea/d/san-mateo-medical-assistant-cna-and/7185888927.html
      If you are interested, you can respond to the listing or email your cover letter and resume to ma2@oiba.us .  
      Thanks!
      Shelby

      I just recently decided to go to PA school and am trying to get PCE hours but also be employed. Right now, I'm looking into whether it would be better to be an MA or EMT-B, but it seems like getting the MA cert would be faster, with online classes and easier accessibility. After looking through some forums, many have said that being EMT-B would be better, but the classes for these take longer and have less availability (if you know a good online program please tell me). 
      Would it be a good idea to just start the MA class (SFSU MA program that also has an externship which I am also worried about, as many have said that it's harder to be employed with a NHA CCMA cert) and then also take the EMT-B course later on to do both?
      Is it possible to do both jobs?

      Hello everyone! 
      My name is Yanka, I am a rising junior, and I recently decided to pursue a career as a PA-C. I chose this career path because I can study for an additional two years and get out into the real world to practice, I also prefer to study the Medical Model, and the work/life balance is very ideal because I love spending time with my family. I was just wondering if there are any opportunities for online shadowing, or any PA-C’s in Massachusetts or Rhode Island offering opportunities to shadow. Please let me know. 
       
      Stay safe!
      Yanka.

      Hello! 
      I graduated from MSU with a Human Biology Major in Winter 2015.
      It has been about 3 years since i have graduated. I studied the MCAT and took the test once and did not apply to any med school because of my MCAT score and GPA.
      i have a GPA 3.0 and not sure about my science gpa about 2.7-2.9 
      I just got married this summer and have been rethinking about med school and wanted to go to PA school instead 
      It seems as competitive as med school but it is only 2 years of school. 
      I don't have ANY direct paid health care experience only volunteering and haven't taken the GRE yet 
      I am 25 years old and just need some help/guidance on the path. 
      so my questions are:
      1.) Should i go to graduate school for 2 years and get good grades to make up for my low GPA
      2.) Should i just get as much PCE as i can? and then apply ? 
      if so, which is better? CNA, MA, paramedic, EMT ? 
      3.) Lastly, should get certified to work as a CNA, MA, paramedic or EMT first, and then work while i go to grad school so i can get PCE and boost my GPA? 
       
      i don't know where to start because I'm trying to find the most affordable and less time consuming way to be competitive to get into PA school 😞 
       
      Thank you

      Hey everyone,
       
      I currently work as a Medical Laboratory Scientist  in the hematology department at a 900+ bed hospital. I don’t interact directly with patients but I do tons of work for patients while utilizing clinical knowledge. I feel this is a great pre-PA job but I understand admission committees might not think the same way. 
       
      My question is should I quit my job and work as an EMT or MA? It would be hard to walk away from a 60k salary but I’m willing to make the sacrifice if necessary. 
       
      Thanks in advance.
