Hey all! I'm hoping to apply to the CUNY School of Medicine when their application opens on July 1st, so I'm starting this thread. Best of luck to everyone else applying! 

Hey, 

I am thinking about applying here but the probation status is making me a little nervous. Did you already send your application in and hear anything?

 

thanks!

I did, I sent in my application on July 4th, but from what I've heard CUNY SoM usually doesn't begin interviewing and such until after their January deadline, so it will be a while. Probably closer to February/march before people start hearing of interviews if they follow the same timeline as last year. 

And they have been accredited for YEARS, they are on administrative probation I believe but since they have been graduating PAs for years I'm not worried, I think they'll fix it quickly. This is what their website says:

The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued status to The CUNY School of Medicine Physician Assistant Program -Administrative Probation is a temporary status granted when a program has not complied with an administrative requirement, such as failure to pay fees or submit require reports. Once placed on Administrative Probation, a program that fails to comply with administrative requirements in a timely manner as specified by the ARC-PA may be scheduled for a focused site visit and/or risk having its accreditation withdrawn.

OK awesome, thanks for the response! I guess I'll wait and apply a little bit later if they are usually not until January! Best of luck ?

Yes, I also applied when their application opened the first week of July. They are not on rolling admissions and do not begin reviewing applications until after January 15, 2019. 

 

Best of Luck everyone! :)

Hey guys,

I am a first year student at CCNY PA Program. We have weekly club meetings on Thursdays at 12:30pm-1:30pm at Harris Hall Room 109 City College. Current students of the program get together with prospectIve students and you can ask us questions. We are also willing to help with the application process and the interview process.

@Crissy1989 Hi Crissy! Do you feel that it would be beneficial to attend a club meeting to get a feel for the program?! If so, I would be willing to come to next week's!

Yea I do. We are always there willing to answer questions and give advice. Also, u get many different perspectives from students of the program.

Hi Crissy,

Do you still hold club meetings? I would like to come to one if that's possible. Also is it true that Sophie Davis wouldn't start sending out interview invites until after January?

I know this program begins in the fall but what exactly does this school consider the fall? Does it follow the CUNY model and begin the end of August?

I believe they start in Sept based on what I’ve read on their website. I just got an email stating that they are currently in the process of reviewing applications and that we will not hear anything until Mid-Feb/March.

Has anyone heard about the institution's accreditation status? Last I saw on the website, they were granted accreditation. Here's what I found on the website:

Quote

The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued status to The CUNY School of Medicine Physician Assistant Program.  Accreditation-Continued is an accreditation status granted when a currently accredited program is in compliance with the ARC-PA Standards.

The approximate date for the next validation review of the program by the ARC-PA will be September 2024. The review date is contingent upon continued compliance with the Accreditation Standards and ARC-PA policy.
