Hello! I saw a thread hadn't been created for U of M. They're accepting applications starting next year and will have their first class starting in 2020. Anyone else interested in this program or have any insight? I was mostly wondering if anyone has experiences with Flint and the safety aspect. Thanks!

I'm from Michigan and wish UofM flint was starting sooner, but I already am going to PA school! I don't know too much about their campus but I have a friend who went through the PT program at UofM Flint and had a great experience. Although she lived in a suburb area outside of Flint, the campus area is very safe. 

Going to school there would be worth it just for the connections. Flint is seriously a good place for healthcare providers to work in and a much needed place for them too.  
Just look how high PAs get paid there and the cost of living is low too https://www.physicianassistantedu.org/michigan/michigan-salary/
Regardless of pay, they're a city in need and I'm so happy they're opening up a school that could potentially fill their provider shortage! Definitely look into their program.

Hi everyone!

I came across this event that will take place on 9/28/19 in Detroit, and I wanted to share the link. U of M-Flint will be one of the ones in attendance (among a few other local ones)!

It could be a GREAT way to get your questions answered, or find out how you can improve your application for future cycles (if it should come to that), and network with other pre-PAs, PA-S, and PA-Cs in the area.

Best of luck to everyone planning on applying to this program:)

I had the same issue! Did they ever get back to you?

 

I recently went to their open house session, and they said that they're working on fixing the issue. They will be able to find our scores once they do! Definitely send them an email though so they keep track. 🙂

Hi all, I am wondering about the physiology prereqs as it says 2 required and one must be a 300 level. I will be finishing A&P by December but am wondering what other classes others are using that can be used for the second course? I also see it says all prereqs must be done before submitting and none can be graduate courses. That would be the only reason I wouldn't be able to apply this year.

Hello! I don’t know which college/university you attend but I went to Wayne State and they offer a 3000 level Human Physiology course for undergrads. Also, I know OCC and Madonna University offers Pathophysiology for undergrad students as well. Hope this helps and best of luck!

Thank you! I am currently at a comm college finishing prereqs, I got my undergrad degree in 2015. I will keep checking to see what schools around me offer more courses,.

I emailed them today to verify that I would meet the two physiology class requirement. I attended WSU for my undergrad and received a BS in biological sciences. I took human physiology which is BIO 3200 and comparative physiology which is a writing intensive with a lab/ BIO 4120. I'll let you know once they get back to me.

Thanks! I did email their admissions and was told they would not reccomend I apply this year until I have that additional physiology course completed. So it's off my list for this cycle.

AA90a did they ever get back to you? I emailed them on the 25th of November and have made two phone calls leaving messages. I have yet to get a response to either communication.

I attended their webinar yesterday and during the Q&A session someone asked if genetics would qualify for the 2nd physiology requirement. Dr. G. said yes but it must be higher than a 300 level. So you may want to inquiry about that if this apply to you. I was told that they do plan on sending out the link to the webinar recording from 1/14/2020. Here is the link to the 12/17/19 webinar, which I also attended-- different Q&A questions than yesterday. But worth listening to if you have time.

I submitted my application today. Good luck everyone!

For the first supplemental essay on CASPA, did you guys write about multiple characteristics and qualities you possess, or did you do one and write a story about it? I am struggling to write this one for some reason!

I looked at the mission and try to incorporate one story of how I would fit. I think if there is one story then it would be best use of the limited character count (blank space included). But if you can't find one story, then maybe a few. See below, or the link above. 

To achieve our mission we will:

  • Prepare a diverse PA workforce to serve the patient-centered needs and public health of the local, state and national communities.
  • Educate students to utilize evidenced-based decision-making and problem solving that allows for safe, affordable practice of medicine in a changing health care environment, with an emphasis on self-assessment that promotes continuous improvement. 
  • Educate and encourage students to provide culturally competent and team-based care with a commitment to caring for all individuals.
  • Prepare graduates who are creative leaders who advocate for and are civically engaged in their practice as clinicians, administrators, academicians, and researchers who contribute to the PA profession.
  • Develop and support faculty members to achieve excellence in teaching, service and scholarship. 
  • Support PA Program graduates and faculty in lifelong learning.

I meant for the quality and characteristics question, not the mission one!

 

 

"What unique characteristics and qualities do you bring to the UM-Flint PA program and the PA profession? (2000 characters)"

Hi, yes I incorporated multiple characteristics and qualities into a short narrative.

Good luck to everyone applying this cycle!

      Hi guys! I didn’t see a three for this school so I decided to start one. Has anyone apply to Arcadia’s Hybrid PA Program?

      Hey y'all so I am a sophomore in undergrad and in the process of just starting to get PCE, shadow, and volunteer hours and etc, but I am super stressed out because I am itching to start getting PCE hours except its so difficult while in school. I was thinking about becoming an EMT and working for 2 years after I graduate but I wasn't sure if being an EMT is considered PCE among most colleges, does anyone know? (I also tried to work as a caregiver over summer and that job isn't for me) 
       
      Also, I'm trying to compile a list of PA schools to apply to, so if anyone has any recommendations for schools on the east coast please let me know! 🙂

      Hey everyone, there are still tickets available for those who are interested in the Loma Linda PA program. We have changed our event from zoom to being ON CAMPUS. There will be prizes raffled off. Due to some restrictions still being in place, the tickets that are being sold will only allow one person per ticket. More info on the flyer and event bright website. Thank you so much! Hope to see you there. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/llus-3rd-annual-pre-pa-conference-tickets-145958073527

      Hi there, my name is Vanessa and I just graduated with my bachelor's in February. I am looking to pursue into a PA program but not quite sure where to start. I am currently studying for the GRE and have about 250 internship hours done at an ENT clinic with an audiologist. I'm not sure in what I am doing and need any guidance or suggestion in what to do.

      Hi everyone! This is my first post so be forgiving if I don't have proper forum etiquette lol. So I am extremely nervous to apply this cycle, 2021-2022, because I feel as though my application is not going to be that strong. Here's what I have (keep in mind that I am a junior in college, so I have some more classes to take):
      cGPA: 3.27
      sGPA: right now I have a 3.1, but after this semester I am thinking that it will be around a 3.3
      HCEs: over 2,000 as a CNA
      I haven't asked for LORs yet, but I am sure that those I ask will highly recommend me (crossing my fingers!).
      I don't have as many volunteer hours as I would like, around 50, but I am currently working on them. 
      I am also involved on campus as an Orientation Leader, I am the President of Nature Club, the treasurer of a History club, and I am also apart of many other clubs, I am just not holding any positions in them. I don't know if this is relevant or not but I also take juijistu classes off campus. 
      I did have some mishaps happen throughout college, I earned a C- in human A&P, and I had to retake biochemistry. I'm not sure if I should retake human A&P to raise my grade and GPA or let it go. I am going to apply this cycle to programs that do not have a minimum letter grade, but I am honestly so worried that these schools won't even look at my application because of my GPA and my A&P grade. 
      Any and all recommendations are welcome, thank you!
