Recommended Posts

Good luck to whomever may get my seat. I have withdrawn my acceptance for a school I can better afford. I have high hopes for South and wish you all the best.

Congrats to everyone admitted so far can't wait to meet everyone! Also, don't get discouraged if you are still on the waitlist, they pull a lot of people off. If anyone has any questions about where to live, the area, etc. let me know! I'm not sure if our coordinator has reached out to you and I know we had someone helping our class with housing.

I haven’t heard anything about housing but I would be very interested in that and also advice on financial aide!

At some point in the near future, you should be able to discuss financial aide with Michael. He will help you plan what you need to take and how to do it. Do that after you have signed and submitted your acceptance. I would assume they will schedule that with you, but you could always call. To get the ball rolling, you can start on your FAFSA.

A Couple people have asked about housing... Here's a copied message for what I told other people!

Hello!

Yes there are many places that are affordable near campus. So, Henrico as a whole is a little expensive but you can for sure find places. The most common places that we moved....

-The Flats: walking distance from the school right in West Broad Village

- The Madison: about 5-8 minute drive from school

- King's Crossing ( a little farther but a little cheaper)

-Retreat at West Creek (a little more pricey but quiet and big two bedrooms)

- You can always look downtown, however, for the first year I would consider being a little closer to school.

- We have a couple people living in the houses right next to campus, they found someone to rent from though.

I would say typically you are looking at rent around (500-750 each in a two bedroom) (900-1,500 One bedroom apartment)

Make sure you ask for Student discounts, sometimes the Flats will give you a deal if they know you are South. Also if you pick any of these places sent me a message, I might be able to get you a referral for cheaper rent from someone in the class already!

Hey everyone!

I was accepted to South earlier this year and look forward to meeting you all!  I actually already live in Richmond so if any of you have questions about housing, location, or Richmond in general feel free to ask and I'd be happy to help out!

Wow congratulations @CarolineJ ! I saw your comment above asking about pulling people from the wait list. I've been checking this thread like crazy. I am remaining hopeful still too. Thanks to everyone who has shared their journey applying to this program!

Hi everyone! Congratulations to everyone who has been accepted already! I am on the wait list and I am still very hopeful to get pulled off soon, South University is my top choice. Did anyone who interviewed on October 13th get pulled off the wait list? Thanks for your help in advance!

Hey guys! At our interview we were told that most of the week you will be required to wear business clothes or scrubs. I would like to start shopping since seasonal sales are starting. Does anyone know if they are picky about pants vs skirts vs dresses for girls business wear? I know most office jobs can wear anything but I also know since we are in school and might be working with varying medical equipment they might want our legs covered. Any current students that can answer this for me?

      Thought I'd start a 2020-2021 pa forum for this cycle. I was verified on 5/14. Good Luck everyone!

      Hello, I am having a lot of trouble trying to narrow down schools to apply to. Where I currently live, most of the schools nearby I cannot apply to because of my stats so I am seeking out of state options. I am ending my sophomore year so I still have another year before I can begin applying (and another year to continue to boost my GPA). Any help would be appreciated!
       GPA currently: 3.426 ( My last semester has not been added in still and my science GPA would be similar)
      I am not taking Ochem 2 or biochem but I have planned/taken genetics, cell bio, microbio, ochem 1, 2 semesters of general bio and 2 semesters of general chem, med term, med ethics, anatomy, physiology, and most other pre-reqs. My main issue is that I have AP credit for statistics that my university accepts for my BS degree but I have noticed that there are some PA schools that do not accept that. I am also extremely involved  and by the time I apply, I will have a high number of service/leadership hours (President of my schools Pre-PA Association, chapter correspondent and philanthropy committee for my sorority, recruitment chair for the universities Relay for Life, and involved in other orgs). I have worked as a nursing assistant at the city's major hospital for over a year and I am seeking another job as a scribe in the ER. I have not begun shadowing yet because of COVID affecting my summer opportunities. 
      If you have experience in applying or likes/dislikes of literally any schools, I would appreciate it! I am not trying to decide on a school right now, I am simply trying to gain insight on potential schools to apply to since the ones near me are not options (Ohio/Michigan area). I have started a detailed list of schools I have researched, but I am struggling to find realistic options and those that I would be able to apply to.
      Thanks!

      Hey good people! I hope you’re all well and healthy during this COVID-19 outbreak. Just wanted to start this early and see your progress on the 2020-21 PA applications!

      Hi, I was looking around on google and couldn’t find any direct information, but I was curious if anyone has a comprehensive list of schools that have waived the GRE due to the current situation afflicting our nation? Any information would be great. Thanks!
