I am so excited to have applied to Quinnipiac! It is one of my top choices for sure. I am really hoping for an interview. Looking forward to hearing from everyone moving forward :)

They usually have 2 interviews per month for Sept, Oct, Nov. Interviews are always on Friday or Saturdays (usually Saturdays). I don't remember when they send out invites but it is sometime over the summer. August maybe? They usually have about 3-5 people per interview that they offer spots to pretty quickly, like within a week or so, but then there are others that won't hear back until later. I think I interviewed in Sept and was accepted in Dec. So if you don't hear back quickly after your interview don't stress. Good luck.

I have been in Boston for the past four years attending Northeastern University, but am originally from CT, so am hoping to make my way back there for PA school (but would be happy and grateful to go anywhere). How about you?

Grew up in Fairfield my whole life, went to college in NYC and came back. Ideally I would like to get into one of the schools in CT to stay but we'll see what happens I guess

What did you use as documentation to verify labs? A few of my science labs were combined with a lecture as a single 4 unit course. I can't really find anything in a course catalog that makes that clear..

I applied back in May and I am anxiously waiting to hear back! I swear I check CASPA multiple times per day...

I have only applied to QU right now. I am still finishing my bachelors and I will be done in May 2018, but many PA schools require that you have your bachelors fully completed BEFORE you even apply! This has limited the amount of schools I can apply to and I'm struggling to find schools that will even let me apply... is anyone here still an undergrad and applied to multiple schools in/around Connecticut?

I do but I have graduated about 5 years ago now. Just took me a little longer to find the path I want.

Same here!! Yay for older applicants! I am hoping all of the experience will count for something :)

Does everyone have over 2500 hours of HCE?

I barely have 1000....

I have about 20,000 or so, but that is from working in the field for about 9 years. If you volunteer at any of your local hospitals, you can build it up that way too. I volunteered for two hospitals in addition to all of my paid positions and a good trick I've learned to get some "hands on" experience is to establish a relationship with someone who you frequently see in the department (most likely a nurse). Once you build that trust, they'll let you interact with patients more (anywhere from taking vitals to transporting them between departments).

I submitted a screenshot of the course description from the online website of the school. Which school did you take those courses at?

Ok, that's what I ended up doing too. I took most of them at the University of Arizona and one at a community college.

Hi everyone, 

I send in my application 7/23, received a confirmation email on 7/26 saying my application is under review. Hoping for an interview. I completed my bachelor 6 years ago from NY,  took longer to chose the path and if I get selected I will be moving from Atlanta, GA.

      Interviewed 09/09 and received my early acceptance email. Would be great to hear from other people who will be attending Quinnipiac class of 2020
    • By PA-Student
      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
