Anyone know if they are going to be sending out more interview invites? 

I recently spoke with them and they are sending more interview invites. Apparently they are interviewing until April now so you can still hear from them. It just really sucks for those waiting to hear back after the interviews, having to wait until April is so frustrating. They still haven't made a decision on my application.

So I’m assuming they haven’t made a decision on anyone who has already interviewed and hasn’t heard anything..?

that's my guess and it really sounds like those still waiting won't hear back until April now. I wonder if anyone has heard anything lately or how many people have been accepted. Maybe once some accepted students turn down their spots we will get an update on our applications.

Yeah that’s what I’m hoping, I would like to get some kind of update soon!

Congrats to those accepted!! I’m a current student so if you have any questions, feel free to ask! As for the Facebook page, how it worked for our cohort is they created one and sent out an invite to the page shortly after acceptance. So hopefully that helps answer your question a little. 
 

For those waiting to hear, just remember no news is good news! Best of luck to everyone!

I also received an acceptance letter on 12/24 (snail mail & e-mail) after interviewing 12/19! Best Christmas present ever 🙂 

 

Does anyone know if there is an accepted students Facebook page?

Cheryl will send you a link to a FB page at some point... if you would like to email her and ask, I'm sure she would be happy to give you guys more info about when they plan on setting one up for your class!!

Congrats to everyone who has gotten acceptance!!

Hi all,

Could someone please clarify the length of this program? It does not specify on CASPA and per the program page, it looks like it is 5 years. 

""Entry level" students come into Gannon University as freshmen, complete the five year curriculum, and earn both a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences degree and a Master of Physician Assistant Science degree."

https://www.gannon.edu/academic-departments/physician-assistant-department/

Thank you in advance.

Can someone explain to me their accreditation provisional status and what this means if you graduate from this program?

I recommend researching this a little. But basically they are accredited and at the next accreditation cycle/visit (or however it’s technically termed) they apply to obtain accreditation continuing. They have not had a graduating class yet and are therefore provisional. As long as a program is accredited when you matriculate, you can sit for the PANCE. Hope this helps a little.

Yes this helps thank you, when will they have their first graduating class and when are they planning to have full accreditation? I didn't apply to this program because I was nervous that if they didn't get accredited that I would waste time and money.

      Here is a link to a google sheets that I have created to more easily access information on each of the schools in Florida and the requirement standards for acceptance or preference. All programs were retrieved from Stetson University website: https://www.stetson.edu/artsci/pre-health/physician-assistant.php , and all program details listed on the google sheet were obtained through each programs website URL in the Stetson link provided. I hope this can help anyone who finds it hard to look up this information and compare and contrast each of the programs, as it has for me.
      Note: The Prerequisite list does not always include if the lab is required. I have listed Hours next to some courses where permitted, and If the course required a lab I did not always list it, but instead just listed the hours included. Example: Microbiology is a 3hr course for me, So when I see that it is listed as 4hrs, I know that this means a Lab must be taken for that class. 
      If anyone has any extra questions, Please do let me know, and I will try to answer. 
      If I have left out anything or made any mistakes, Please let me know and I will fix them ASAP, but I feel that it is accurate at this point, with regards to all sections except the "Average acceptance GPA", as this information was harder for me to find.

      Hello everyone! I did not see a thread for the applications for Gannon University in Erie, PA? Has anyone applied as a post-baccalaureate student? They do have a 5 year combined bachelor's and master's program but I believe they accept a few students besides their undergraduate class.
