Current MBKU student. 

If you got waitlisted, don't fret! Roughly 8-10 people in our current class got in off the waitlist. 

Best of luck to y'all!

thank you, that is helpful to know! Do you know how many people total they place on the waitlist by any chance?

Hi everyone! 

This might be a dumb question but is the alternate list the same as the waitlist? Because I was reading the "Be a PA" blog post about getting waitlisted and now I'm a little unclear on if there are two separate lists (alternate versus waitlist) or if the terms are simply interchangeable. Thanks in advance!

So from my understanding the Alternate list is just MBKU's way of saying waitlist but I kind of sounds nicer in my opinion.

Congrats!! What does certiphi mean?

It's the background check company used by schools after an acceptance.

Were you accepted from the waitlist? Also congrats!! 

No I interviewed on 1/11 but never got an email for anything yet until this one. I'm waiting for an official one from the school. Hopefully it isn't a false alarm.

Congratulations! Can't wait to start working with you all this summer!

Does anyone know when in August the program starts? I am still waiting to hear back about how I can start the background check process too. I looked for an email from cirtiphi everywhere in my email mailboxes, but haven't got one yet.

Hi everyone, 

 

Interviewed 1/11 and accepted 2/3.

@PAhope20 The background check email took a couple days for me to receive after the initial offer email and after I sent the matriculation agreement. 

Looking forward to meeting everyone!  And sending positive vibes to those who are still waiting 🤙

Thanks for the information. I was accepted on 2/3 as well, so not sure why the background check information hasn't come to me yet. I have emailed and called them a few days ago. Hopefully I hear back from them soon.

      Hey everyone! Thought I'd get this cycle's thread started. I'm planning on submitting pretty soon after I proofread my supplemental app. Let's do this!!! 💪

      Hi! This fall I will commence my undergraduate studies at SUNY Cortland and I'm pretty concerned with being prepared for applying to PA programs, especially in regards to obtaining direct patient care hours. I was doing research and there are programs in which their accepted candidates average or will have even have more than 4,000 hours. This is quite the daunting task considering I plan to be a full-time student over the next four years.
      As of now, I plan on being involved in the campus EMS squad where I will receive training and will be required to serve a minimum of two 12-hour shifts per semester. However, I will aim to serve at least 1 of these shifts every week. Do these volunteer hours count as direct patient care hours? Additionally, the squad will pay for my EMT-B training throughout this upcoming year's spring semester if I agree to volunteer for them for the two semesters of my sophomore year. Thus, I will be able to at least volunteer as an EMT-B over the next few summers as well.
      Cortland Regional Medical Center is also a five-minute drive from the university, so I will most likely be able to shadow and volunteer here, but they are not a teaching hospital so they do not often have training experiences.
      So my overarching question is how am I supposed to get the hours I need by the fall of my senior year when application season begins? Will I most likely have to accumulate hours for another year after my undergrad? Furthermore, are there any other positions I can seek to display diversity within the hours I accumulate, and are there any other pieces of advice you can offer me as I begin to plan?
      Thanks for all the help!

      Hi all, 
      I did not see a link for the 2017-2018 cycle, so I figured I would start one here. Has anyone heard back from Baylor regarding applications? Good luck!

      I have been fortunate enough to be accepted into two programs and need some help making my decision! They are both relatively new CA programs.
       
      MBKU is on its fourth class and has 100% first year PANCE pass rate. Their program is very family/collaberative oriented. Great people, and great organization of curriculum. And they are currently remodeling a building for PA students' use. Downside is I do not care for the location (farther from family and the LA can be stressful for me), and they are predominately an optometry school.
       
      On the other hand, UoP just started the first year, no PANCE scores. But the staff is very distinguished and the school has proof of many other successful health care programs, you get some cadaver lab access, and the facilities are new and very high tech. Sacramento is also cheaper to live and closer to family. My main concern here is that the program is so new and still working out kinks. The class is also large (45) and I don't yet see that they promote as much of a family bond between students. 
       
      Generally I feel that MBK is a slightly better program, but UoP has a better location. Any advice is definitely welcome! If you had to make a decision between schools, how did you do it?
