Has anyone attempted the supplemental application yet for Augsburg? I was just looking on the website and I am not seeing the PA supplemental application come up, just the "general" grad school application.

@olipajoli It's easiest to click on the link in the CASPA application that takes you directly to the link and you will have to create an account and choose PA graduation graduate application.

Submitted 5/15, verified 5/17

Supplemental app completed 5/19 - it is definitely easiest to go through the CASPA information page

Has anyone had an email confirmation that the school is reviewing their app? I submitted both the CASPA and supp in the beginning of May and haven’t heard anything. Just got a email saying that’s for the $50 app fee.

Nothing for me - just confirmation of supplemental being paid

Augsburg utilizes a non rolling admission, so you probably won't hear from them until after their deadline of August 1!

I just got this now too! Were you verified a while ago? Just wondering because I was CASPA verified in May and just got this now. (I'm hoping I wasn't assuming I was verified when I wasn't!)

I was verified end of May/early June, so you're fine!

Question for everyone! As expected, I’ve accrued more pce hours since applying back in May. Does anyone know if I should contact the school about it so they can update my file, or should I add the additional hours to CASPA? Thanks in advance, and good luck to everyone! I also received the email today about being verified! Very excited!

I was also wondering this....I think I'm going to add them on CASPA with the word "update" in parenthesis following that- which is what a school recommended last year-then I'll hit the "update application" button on CASPA. Not sure if I want to bother schools by emailing them...but if someone has had positive feedback from emailing the schools I'd love to hear that too!

I added an additional experience and just put the start date as the day after I submitted my CASPA to the current date, I figured the schools would figure out that it was additional hours I’ve accrued, but the “update” idea is a good one too. I figured it wasn’t worth emailing them, cause I’m sure they understand we are continuing to accrue more hours since we submit our applications, and most programs take that into account when reviewing your patient care experience

Anyone else get the email that Augsburg has an accreditation-probation status? Yikes. I know its still an amazing program, but I wonder what happened...

Yep. I appreciate that they addressed it though. I'm curious as well. I'm sure they will address this at the interviews?

I don’t think this is a good news because if you were accepted and you started  on summer 2020, you would be in big problem if Augsburg’s program lost their accreditation summer 2021.. the whole class would be in terrible and might drop out. It’s good they mentioned on the email, but it’s risky and unsafe for us. Just in my opinion,  If anyone get accepted somewhere else and the program accreditation is in good status, you should take it no matter how good Augsburg is.

I disagree. Augsburg released a statement that specifically states they are still an accredited program during this time and that prospective students can still graduate and take the national boards. Nothing changes while under review, I just think they may have had an issue with reporting data properly leading them to a "probation" status. Augsburg is still a great program- educating very competent and successful PAs- and I don't think this status should deter you from applying or accepting a spot. If I were accepted, I would still be very excited to be part of their program (but that's just my opinion-which is why I applied to this program in the first place).

You are correct in that nothing changes for current or prospective students while under review. According to the ARC-PA, probationary accreditation is still an active accreditation status, meaning all students who start a program under probationary accreditation are eligible to sit for the PANCE exam. If for some reason Augsburg were to lose accreditation at their next review, it would not affect their current students or students applying this cycle, because they would have already matriculated while under an active accreditation status and would be able to take the boards. Plus, Augsburg’s program is a well-established program having been around since 1995, and the email we received sounded like they were on top of making any improvements necessary to gain back their continued accreditation, so it seems like we don’t have much to worry about!

      I didn't want to hijack another thread so I'm starting a new topic here. Just wanted some opinions on Minneapolis neighborhoods? Are there any that should definitely be avoided, or any that you find particularly charming? I'd be willing to commute probably 25 mins max to Augsburg, but obviously would prefer closer. Thanks for any thoughts in advance!

      Do any current, past, or prospective students have any advice or reasoning to advocate for one of the 3 MN schools over the others? I have been accepted to Augsburg, interviewed at St.Kate's, and will interview at Bethel next week. I would love to know what makes each program unique and more reasoning to choose one over the other if given the option. Thanks in advance!

      The deadline for applications was moved up 1 month to August 1st, compared to September 1st in years past. Does anyone know if Augsburg is planning to start interviews in September instead of October?
