MICHIGAN: Concordia University Ann Arbor

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! Just wanted to start a thread for anyone looking at Concordia University that is opening in Ann Arbor. They're taking their first class starting 2019 but don't even have pre-reqs up yet so I was just curious if anyone else was looking at this or had any info on it. Thanks!

I just saw that they were opening a program too! I'm also curious about the prereqs and if they will be using CASPA this cycle? Hopefully, they have more information soon, I think this could be a really good program

I'm not sure if they'll be on CASPA. I know they're going to the March 2019 meeting for accreditation, so maybe after that? Now sure about this. The director said she would email me when they update their website. I think it could be really good too!

Does anyone know an email to contact them and ask about prerequisites? I want to double check a course I took would count for English Composition.

I emailed them, no body response

No, they are not. They said that they do a preliminary review of applicants as they are received and then in March they start to review them for interviews. We should know hopefully early March since interviews begin March and April, maybe in end of this month!

what is everyone thinking? When do you all think we will know? 

Hey! I emailed the program last week and they stated that they are “waiting to hear back regarding their accreditation. As soon as we are aware of our status, we will update our applicants.”

Okay great. At least we know something now. Accreditation always gets in the way a bit

      Hello!
      I am currently waitlisted at two schools. I am sitting at #9 on the waitlist at one and unsure where I am at the second program. The second program does not give any information on where the student is on the list, but they do inform us that it is ranked based off of our interview score. I am getting extremely impatient but am trying to stay positive!! I was wondering if I should reach out to the second program to inform them of any changes to my application since my interview date in September. I have gained about 450 PCE hours and have started volunteering again. Do you think it will do any good to share this info? 
       
      Thanks in advance for any advice! 🙂

      Is the Northeast Pre-PA Conference legitimate? If it is, could anyone verify if it's safe to pay through the following eventbrite link:
      https://www.eventbrite.com/e/second-annual-northeast-pre-physician-assistant-conference-tickets-66535863559?aff=erelexpmlt
       
      I'm honestly just clueless about conferences in general. This would be my first Pre-PA conference and I want to make sure it's a reputable conference and that it is safe to purchase tickets through the above link. If there is an actual event elsewhere, please inform me!
      Thank you all in advance!

      Looking for some advice- I plan on applying the 2021 cycle but I’m a bit neurotic and really just need to plan out everything ahead of time.
      My cgpa and sgpa will both be around a 3.25 (currently taking post bacc classes) if I continue with an upwards trend. I should have around 2000-3000 PCE by the time I apply, I’m currently an ER scribe, volunteer EMT.
      I have about 30 PA shadowing hours but I work with a lot more pa’s in the ER now so I’ll be shadowing them; I've done some other pce work like PT aid, I also went on a medical mission trip to Nicaragua through Global Medical Brigades and worked in a community health clinic. 
      Will also be taking the GRE soon.
      I guess I’m just very afraid of getting denied, idk if I should continue to take classes at cc and boost my gpa even more (super hard bc I messed up my first two years of college) or should I do a masters? My gpa is holding me back a lot, I am trying to shine in other aspects of my app but I’m a bit lost and I just know that I want to be a PA more than anything. Are there any specific schools any of you would recommend looking more into? Anything else I can do to better my chances/ app? If you have any insight please lmk!!
