Does anyone know much on Morehouse’s new PA program? I’ve tried calling their department several times but no answer, but maybe someone on here could help me with my questions. 

Is the 500 patient care hour required upon application?

And also, do they do rolling admissions?

I applied last week. Has anyone received anything from this program at all? I wonder when they start considering people to interview?

At the open house, the admissions director told us that they will wait till the deadline to start looking at applications

I also got an invite for 10/10! Good luck to everyone.

Does anyone have any idea what the interview style is going to be like? Would to be inappropriate to ask?

I found this on their website "Applicants advancing in the admissions process will be invited to participate in an on-site campus interview consisting of a program orientation, 2 individual interviews, tour of the campus, lunch, a group activity and a group Q&A session."

Thanks so much! I guess that means no MMI, medical terminology quiz, or anything else like that?

Update: I got accepted at another PA program and so I cancelled my interview with MSM. Hope that opens up the opportunity for someone else. Good luck everyone!

Congratulations @SoonToBePAC. Where will you be attending PA School?

Thank you! I got accepted to UTSW in Texas! I accepted the seat but I am still keeping my options open for other schools/interviews before I make my final decision on where I will go.

 

After some thought I am actually considering seeing if Morehouse will still let me interview. After going to other interviews I can see the value and great opportunity it would be to get my education at an HBCU, and I don't want to take that chance for granted. Does anyone know if they got their accreditation at the last arc-pa meeting?

I honestly don't know my stats 100% but I can tell you generally what I have.

cumulative GPA: about a 3.51

science GPA: I think was about a 3.4

postbacc Science: 4.0

GRE: If I recall my score was like a 301

healthcare/direct patient care experience: depending on what the school accepts as experience I have anywhere from about 1,200 hours to over 4,000 hours. 

PA Shadowing: about 25 hours in cardiology and neurosurgery.

letters of rec: 1 from a regional volunteer coordinator I worked with for 4 years, 1 from a college professor, 2 PA letters of rec one in neurosurgery one in cardiology.

 

I feel like I have pretty average stats but honestly my letters of rec are incredible and I have a pretty strong/unique personal statement. Hope that helps!

I got an invite to interview on 9/28 for 10/10!! I assumed that everyone got 1 week notice but some got their invites earlier... I wonder why. 

Anyone know if MSM has received their accreditation yet?

Was it last month that they were supposed to be reviewed for it? They may announce it during their first interview session, so someone that interviews there may can provide some insight. You may can call and ask as well.

I think the ARC PA just met Sept 27-29 so I am not sure what the timeline is for deciding/announcing the accreditation. Fingers crossed but I am not concerned as they have a strong med program to build off of!
