Lipscomb 2018-2019 Applicants

Recommended Posts

I'll be interviewing in December, but has anyone heard if they'll be gaining full accreditation? On their website it says they have provisional accreditation.

@cmpa2 I am sorry to hear that homie. Good luck at the other places you applied to. We all only need one acceptance, somewhere. ?

Just got my denial email. Good luck everyone

Did you get a rejection to interview or rejection to acceptance? Just remember that we are all in the same boat and one place will be the perfect fit!! Keep your head up! I have gotten many rejections too and Im trying to stay positive too! Keep up the hard work ?

I also got my rejection email. Truly a bummer because I have heard great things about Lipscomb in general. Seeing their average stats though I just wasn't what they were looking for.  Good luck to everyone else!

When did you apply? I haven't heard anything back from them, so I am trying to get a gauge on what I should be expecting. So sorry to hear that though. Don't get discouraged!

It's ok Johnny... 🙂 

Man I'm hoping I get in here! I've dreamed about attending this program since last year's interview! And to everyone who is anxiously waiting to hear back from Lipscomb or any other school: You're not alone! I'm happy to discuss my difficult time getting into PA school (its my second cycle and have had 0 acceptances thus far) while seemingly everyone around me is getting in. Please message me if you'd like to want to talk to someone who understands your pain!

Provisional accreditation IS full accreditation. Provisional accreditation is simply the only accrediting status a new program can receive. Lipscomb has met professional standards for every ARC-PA standard so don't let the "provisional" status deter you! They are just waiting for its first cohort of students to graduate to become Accreditation-Continued. More information can be found here if you're confused about the term: http://www.arc-pa.org/accreditation/provisional-accreditation/

I got the under review email on 8/22 and I have not heard anything back yet. Do I still have a chance or should I assume that I don't? Its driving me crazy! 😞
