2017-2018: Baylor PA Program


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

Hi Everyone!

Good luck this cycle! I wanted to apply to Baylor this cycle, however I was afraid of the minimal for the GRE. They said they would not take students who didn't meet their GRE minimal requirements. At this point I am not considering taking the GRE again, as my score has not had any bearing on my other applications. Anyone else have this problem?

Thanks @majetito and @imrmaknojia. I know your application is suppose to be "holistic". My GRE score is under 300, but on the other hand I have a Masters degree, and I had four interviews last cycle with waitlist. This year I was really wanting to apply here, but I don't want to waste, if they aren't going to consider my app due to minimal GRE requirements. I will reach out one last time...

Thanks for your advice! Good luck everyone!

Hi all, 
I did not see a link for the 2017-2018 cycle, so I figured I would start one here. Has anyone heard back from Baylor regarding applications? Good luck!
 

Based on last year, they will send a confirmation email that they received all your materials, but don't even send out invitations for interviews until December-January.

Does anyone know if we need to have the required GPA's by the sept 1st deadline?

I was on interview waitlist here last year, but now that they changed the requirement, I have just below that for science, like justtt below. I am taking classes this fall that will put me well over, so I'm wondering if i will be cut right off the bat, or if since they don't interview until December if they would take into account the grades/new gpa from this Fall?

I will ask them this on Monday, but just checking here first to save time on finishing supp essays. Thanks

I honestly don't know the answer to that but I would think they would consider it since the interviews were sent out in Jan last cycle. I was also wait listed for the interview :( Did you re-write your personal essay completely, or just edited it a little? Hoping that they do take your new gpa into account and you can get in this time...Good luck!

I am presuming that if you do not have the 3.2 overall and science that your application would be thrown out? 3.12 and 3.15 respectfully would not meet this standards so why waste my money even though I was wait listed to interview last year? 

I would imagine it's a line in the sand unfortunately

Where is the supplemental application? Do we have to submit CASPA first and then we receive it?

The supplemental essays are incorporated into CASPA (go to the Program Materials area, click on Baylor, then click on the "Questions" tab). There's a link to the login to pay the supplemental app fee on that same tab.

Thanks so much!! I just wanted to make sure because last year's supplemental was from an outside link and had like 5 essays. This is so much better! Yay!

I've been wait listed for an interview by Baylor twice. Both times, they didn't even send out invites until mid December. They have a pretty good system going and haven't given any indication that it changed this year. Think of it as an early Christmas present if/when you get the good news.

Did they tell you what number you were on the waitlist? Did you ever get to interview?

 

I interviewed last year and was notified in mid December about an interview and interviewed in January. Which will be how it'll be this year I'm guessing since previous years that's how it's been as well.

No they never gave me a number and also no to the interview. It is Baylor so I'm not really shocked or upset that the wait list doesn't move much. 

 

You can, however, email them for feedback on your application once you've been wait listed. They gave me some really good advice.

      Hi! I am 22 and graduated from my undergraduate degree at a 4 year in December of 2020. Ever since then, I have been working full-time as an outpatient pharmacy technician in a hospital (I've had this position for 2 and a half years but just went full time). I had a scholarship with my undergraduate degree which I majored in Med Humanities, so all the science I have is Chem 1 with lab, Bio 1 & 2 with lab, 1 upper level bio with lab (Ecology), Stats, Medical Terminology, and a Psych Minor under my belt. Now that I am post grad, I want to go back to school and knock out the rest of the pre-reqs for some PA programs I am looking at such as Chem 2 with lab, Anatomy & Phys 1 & 2, Orgo 1/Biochem, some recommended courses such as Genetics or Immunology, and I think that is all I will need at least for now. I am looking at some schools such as Baylor, Texas Tech, Marquette, Union for right now. My current stats are 3.265 GPA, I have a couple C's in my sciences from sophomore year due to lack of time/working due to financial and personal hardships with family, etc. As the semesters went on until Senior year, I have maintained a 3.5 and up term GPA so it was only improvement from there. I have a nearly perfect GPA with my psych minor but its not like that matters too much when they look at overall. I've already taken my degree so I can't retake those C's now. I've read plenty of similar stories on here of similar background and stats and know it is possible and can take multiple cycles to get in. My question is, are any of these schools worth a shot for me? I obviously am trying to strive for a 3.5 GPA and up for these science pre-reqs. I have been out of science for a while so I am a little nervous but I still work full time so I plan to take 1-2 classes at a time at community college, hoping to finish by fall 2022 and apply for 2023 cycle. That might be pushing things so I might even consider applying for the 2024 cycle. I just hate the feeling of working hard then getting rejected the first time around but I know it is common. I don't want to feel rushed on the clock with my age either. I also know that being a pharmacy technician might count for healthcare experience but not necessarily patient care experience. Anyone on here going through the same thing or have any advice for me? Should I be doing anything different? Thanks!

      Hi Everyone,
      My name is Kammie and I am currently an PA applicant for 2021-2022. I have obtained over 2,000 hours of patient care experience (PCE) as a medical assistant for a dermatology clinic.

      Hi there, my name is Vanessa and I just graduated with my bachelor's in February. I am looking to pursue into a PA program but not quite sure where to start. I am currently studying for the GRE and have about 250 internship hours done at an ENT clinic with an audiologist. I'm not sure in what I am doing and need any guidance or suggestion in what to do.
