Hey, I'm new here. My application was verified recently and I'm curious how long does it take for WSU to respond after receiving it? Anyone been verified in the last week? Anyone receive supplemental application yet?

I received a confirmation email from WSU in reference to my grad school application. I have not received one from the program yet. My application was sent to them only a few days ago. Caspa shows it was verified by WSU but I was hoping to get an actual email from the program. Seems the response times vary widely.

Do we need to submit their grad application before 9/1?

 

"no later than Sept. 1st"

means I can submit on 9/1 right??

I would submit today if you have not. I don't know if it would get processed on Saturday. I do believe the actual deadline is 1 September 23:59:59 but I personally wouldn't risk it.

For those who have applied in the previous year(s), do you know if their supplemental questions are the same? Just wondering so I can get a head start.

Do you know what the questions were previously?

PAwannaBE21, on WSU website this is what it says:

Message from the Program Director:

The Wichita State University PA program remains a fully accredited program that continues to produce excellent outcomes. Our program has recently completed a rigorous self-study followed by a routine site visit from our accrediting body, ARC-PA. During this process, ARC-PA determined we were unable to demonstrate full compliance with standards related to two primary areas: how the program uses data collection and analysis to guide program modifications; and verification of clinical experience, establishment of levels of expectation, and assessment of skills for the clinical year. As a result, our accreditation status changed from “Accreditation – Continued” to Accreditation – Probation”.

Our department, as well as the College of Health Professions and University administration have accepted that decision and have immediately initiated an intensive plan of action to address the issues cited. We are fully confident that these corrective measures will meet or exceed the accreditation standards established by ARC-PA with no adverse consequences to currently enrolled, admitted, or prospective students. Students can continue to apply, matriculate, graduate, take the PANCE, and apply for state licensure.

PANCE eligibility requirements are explained by NCCPA. ARC-PA has additional information about attending a program with Accreditation – Probation status.

The leadership of WSU and the College of Health Professions, along with the faculty and staff of the PA program and I take this decision by ARC-PA very seriously. It is our responsibility to correct any deficiencies identified through the self-study process and we will successfully address those concerns. Full compliance with all ARC-PA Accreditation Standards represents only the minimum of my expectations for this program. We have faculty and staff dedicated to excellence in PA education, we have tremendous facilities, and most importantly, we have amazing students that will be part of a very bright future for healthcare in Kansas and beyond.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions about our program (kim.darden@wichita.edu).

Wow. My family lives in Kansas City and I am taking a spontaneous trip to visit them soon. I called WSU, told them I am a prospective student for the PA program, and asked if I could schedule a tour or meet up and I had such a bad experience! I asked if I would be able to set up a tour while there and the woman I spoke with said they don't do that. I was surprised, so I asked if there was any kind of current student volunteers that would do a meet up. She responded, "Ummm, well because of liability issues I can't just give you student information." Private student info was totally not what I was asking for...I asked one more time if there was any way to get a tour because I would have loved an opportunity to get a feel for the campus and ask some questions and she told me,  “No. We can’t just accommodate any person from off the street..." I’m trying to give her the benefit of the doubt, maybe she was just having a bad day, but what?? This experience left such a bitter taste in my mouth. I just don’t even know what to think. What kind of school treats their prospective students like that?

She did tell me that they are having an information session on October 6 for any of you that are close.

Wow! That shocks me, considering I'm a current student here at WSU. I've never been faced with any interactions even close to that, and I doubt this helps much, but I am incredibly sorry for the way she treated you. She could have explained things a little better, but I can try to help a little bit since I have some insight from going to the information sessions over the years.

At the information sessions, they do give people a tour of the PA building if people choose to do so. I will note that the PA building/campus is not on Wichita State's actual campus anymore. Starting last summer, they moved the PA building to downtown Wichita, called "Old Town", and is a short 10/15 minute drive from the actual campus, so I'm not sure that getting a tour of the actual campus would benefit you much since it isn't utilized much anymore. They did say during the info sessions that they may have a class or two during the week on campus but everything else is at the Old Town campus. I hope this helps some! Again, I'm so sorry that she wasn't able to provide this information for you in a respectful manner.

LyssF, 

Thank you for the information! I did not realize that the PA program was moved off campus. I may still go to Wichita and look around so this is very helpful. And you don't have to apologize for her! Totally not your fault! Thanks again for the response.

Still waiting

I applied mid-May, got an email 7/24 stating the supplemental app would be sent in the coming weeks and haven’t gotten anything since.

Oh man, seems like no one's gotten the supplemental app from WSU yet...

I have not. Did anyone go to the information session on Saturday? I wanted to know if they addressed secondaries and if they happened to mention how many applicants they had this year?

      Hello! Looking for PAs to shadow in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles County, and/or Ventura County areas! I have been looking around with little/no luck, and most of the PAs in my area seem to work at the local Kaiser, and I'm not sure how easy it would be to shadow their PAs. If anyone knows of any PAs that would be willing to let a student shadow them for a few days, I would appreciate their contact info! Thank you in advance, and good luck to all!

      Hello everyone! I did not see a thread for the applications for Gannon University in Erie, PA? Has anyone applied as a post-baccalaureate student? They do have a 5 year combined bachelor's and master's program but I believe they accept a few students besides their undergraduate class.

      My name is Tessa and I am currently an MA at a dermatology clinic. I am aspiring to be a PA and will be applying during the next cycle. I have worked along side PAs for about 2 years now in dermatology and have experience working in a level 1 ED. However, I am looking for any PA shadow opportunity in Arizona that is not dermatology as I want to branch out and have an understanding of what PAs do in different fields. I live in Glendale but I am willing to travel anywhere in Arizona.
      If you are a PA or know a PA or any open opportunities feel free to reach out to me on here. 
      Thank you!

      Hey all, 
      Been reading a lot about applicants who have taken a biology/health-science/etc. masters program in an effort to improve their GPA or to "show" PA schools that they can handle tough, upper level coursework. I was wondering what you'd consider the "cut-off" to be for when you should or should not pursue a masters? Anything less than 3.7? 3.6? 3.5? 3.4? 
      Quite frankly I've been considering this myself (I'd be happy to provide my stats). I know a lot of factors obviously go into a decision like this (trends, cGPA, sGPA, pre-reqGPA, HCE, shadowing, the application as a whole, etc.), but just kinda wondering what peoples inclinations are on this. 
      Thanks!
