2020-2021 Bethel Application Cycle

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm super confused. So I had applied to Bethel and this week they reached out saying they received my app but that one of my LoRs was missing even though I know all of my LoRs were marked complete by CASPA and my app was verified. They also asked me whether I had fulfilled the min. 40 hours shadowing a PA requirement. I am SUPER confused because when I had looked through the Bethel university PA program web page to make sure I'd fulfilled each requirement I know I had ensured I did meet before I applied and none of it mentioned anything about mandatory shadowing etc... BUT NOW when I search Google again, it shows me the Bethel Uni page I saw before AND another/Bethel University, Tennesee PA program page which I never really looked at. This page talks about the shadowing requirement and that you have to have TWO LoRs from a PA or Doctor... IS this how it was for you? Did you guys have 2 LoRs from a PA/ doctor?? 

 

This may be my fault, but HOW AND WHY are there TWO DIFFERENT Bethel Pa Program pages...and their Mission Program statement/ goals etc...don't even match up exactly...? Pls explain to me....I may have just wasted my $$$ on something I wasn't meeting requirements for 🤧

@Graceme It sounds like you may have applied to the incorrect Bethel University! How frustrating! Is there any way that you can confirm that with the school who is emailing you?

If it helps for your confirmation too, after submitting my application to Bethel University in Minnesota I got a confirmation email from Aimee.

@Graceme unfortunately the same thing happened to me last year and I had to eat the fee because it's nonrefundable. On the bright side, you caught the mistake early on and there is still time to apply to the correct one!

So just confirming, Bethel University in MN does NOT have a 40 hour PA shadowing requirement? Just double checking! I have 36 with PAs but the rest with MDs and want to make sure I'm eligible!

Do they send out interview interview invites on rolling bases from sept 1 or it is only one day for all their potential interview dates??

Do you know if Bethel sends out all their interview invitations at once or if they do them in groups? Still haven't heard from them and am hoping I still have a chance for an interview! Thanks. And congrats to all those who have invites so far! 🙂

For people that have heard back about interview invites, when did you submit your CASPA application? Curious if they are sending out invites based on when you submitted your application. I submitted mid July and still haven't heard back. Also, congratulations!
