hey guys, do you know if St.Johns uses rolling admission for their PA program ?:

 

The applicant's manual of physician assistant programs says it is non-rolling.

I am an upcoming student in the fall 2019 PA program. I applied last year and in the interview they said it is rolling admissions.

Apparently they have already sent out interview invites. I'm aware of one person who got an invite. They completed their secondaries on Monday 07/15. Anyone else heard back from them?

I received an interview invites on July 18th. I have to call to schedule either for July 31th or August 14th. I was shocked when I received the invites by email because I haven't submit my supplemental essay and haven't make the supplemental payment yet. Good luck to all and hope you received your invites soon 😀

Not yet. I am working on it. I will try to submit before my interview day. I scheduled my interview today for July 31th. 

That's crazy that they were able to give you an interview without it lol. Congrats!!!! and best of luck.

So you submitted  your CASPA app on May 8th or May 22nd?

After spending a lot time researching about this PA Program I realized it is not on the best of my interest. St. John's program is 3 year long. The seat deposit is 1500 dollars, money I will most likely loose because the school is on the bottom of my list. No tour given during interview day 😲. In addition, they required Organic Chemistry 2, which I was think to take it during the fall, but I would rather save that money and keep my grades up. Based on this reason, I declined my interview invites and hope they give it to someone who is really dreaming to attend this PA Program. Wish you all the best of luck !

      Hi, everyone!
      What are your thoughts on applying to programs with a ARC-PA probationary accreditation status (i.e., "Accreditation-Probation")?
      I'm a first-time applicant, and a couple schools that I have my eye on currently have probationary statuses (Johnson & Wales University; Monmouth University). I was wondering if it's worth applying to said schools, especially to ones that have had a probationary status for more than two years. 
      Although these schools are still considered accredited, is it safe to apply to & then attend these schools? Do these schools prepare students to become competent & trustworthy healthcare professionals? Are these schools worth the debt? My concern is enrolling in a school with probationary accreditation and graduating as a sub par PA-C, but those are just my uncertain sentiments at the moment. 
      Moreover, I've read that applying to these schools may be advantageous to some who aren't considered "strong applicants" (e.g., average grades/GRE). On the other hand, I've seen "strong applicants" display their admiration & loyalty to these schools here on PA Forum. I'm confused! Let's open up the discussion!

      I worked as a PRN rehab technician for about 3 months (roughly 20 hours a week) before I became Full-Time (40 hours a week).  How do I record this change in hours? Do I make two separate entries or average the hours per week?  My hours for PRN also varied each week, with weeks working up to 30 hours and sometimes only 15 hours. Do I need to record this somehow? I also do not understand how PA schools validate that the numbers of hours stated are honest. Is there some sort of validation document needed from each employer from past jobs.  Any advice is appreciated, thank you!

      I thought I’d start this since I didn’t see any posts about this application cycle yet. Has anyone heard back besides the normal “we received your application” email?
