Any other news? Acceptances? Does anyone know when letters go out for those who have yet to hear something?

I got a call from admission and got accepted from the alternate list today!

Congrats!! I am an accepted student and the Dean informed us today that they will be accepting 5 more applicants to increase our current class size from 40 to 45. They have plans to further increase the class size to 60 in the future. Welcome and congrats!!

Hello everyone,

 

I am new to this forum. I will be applying to SUNY Downstate next year. How recent were you non clinical hours that they require? Mine were from 2014-2015. Should I do more recent hours? I have 520 hours so far but I am concerned that by the time I apply they may consider them outdated.

Question for the accepted students:

 

Did any of you retake any pre-reqs because of a low grade? If so, do they accept the higher grade or do they average both the high and low grade?

I believe they take the highest one for students in those positions. But not every program does that some average it in. Best thing is to go to the information session to ask questions you need clarity on, or if you can't call admissions.

All the best!

Thank you for getting back to me. I will definitely  be attending the info session. Are you a current student?  If so can you give me your opinion on the program?

      Just thought I start a thread for the upcoming class for any questions and comments.
      Good luck everyone =)

      Just looking for any insight.
       
      I am currently accepted into 3 PA programs and am having a hard time choosing between programs. Below are what my options look like. I am wondering what factors I should focus my attention towards.
      Currently, I am leaning toward SUNY Upstate because of the graduation rate (98.4) and the attrition rate (2.2%). Next is DeSales with a grad rate of (93 to 95%) and attrition rate (6.7%). 
       
      Here is the table!
       
       
      1. Should I weigh the attrition rate very strongly when choosing? I will be away from my fiancé as she completes her own PA program and have a feeling that I should choose a program that won’t dismiss me if I have a slight setback.
       
      2. I graduate undergrad May 14th from New Mexico. Should my start date be a major factor? With Quinnipiac, I would have a short time to get my affairs in order. While with Desales, I have a few months.
       
      3. SUNY tries to put all clinical rotations in 1 semi-rural facility. Each student has their own facility. Should this be looked at as a negative trait, or does 1 site allow me to do more around the facility? Would this lack of different sites hurt me from finding jobs across the nation?
       
       ​4. I am a young African American male. Are there areas in these communities I should avoid? This is a silly question due to the fact that your personality determines who you are and how people treat you, but I am just keeping an open mind.
       
      I know this seems kind of ridiculous to ask on a forum and should be a personal choice, but I just want as many perspectives as possible from those who are familiar with the career. My goal is to simply become a great provider for my patients and not go crazy trying to make this choice.  This community has helped me so much throughout my academic career. Any insight helps. Thank you!
       
      P.S. If you see any incorrect information on this table, feel free to correct me! No offense information about PA programs please. If there is a severely negative aspect, you can email me because I still want to hear it J

      Hey. I know it's too early to apply to SUNY's PA program. Figured I would get this going for all of us who are planning to apply this year
      Let's do this!
