Has anyone heard anything yet? It seems the last two years people began getting interview invites in late-May. I'm starting to get nervous...

Don't be nervous! They have changed their process a little bit in the last couple years.

Thank you! I really love their program! I did just look over the website again and it says interviews begin in July so I will begin re-freaking out July 1st.

Is anyone concerned at all that this program is on accreditation probation? I love this school but that is what’s holding me back from applying, does anyone have any info about that?

I'm a current student here. This issue has been addressed and the program is waiting to hear back from ARC-PA. The problem was a matter of paperwork under a previous director. If you have further questions the director or other faculty are open to answer any questions if you contact them. 

If you do matriculate at UB with this status, it is still accredited and has no effect on your ability to take your boards. You can message me with any questions too if you would like.
