I am also verified. I applied on May 17th and verified that day. I received notification from the JWU portal on Monday that they received my application and will be reviewing it this summer.

How did you get access to the portal? Did they send an email out? Thanks!

I don't have access to their portal. I received an email from the portal that said my application had been received in their portal with a reminder about their program requirements for classes, PCE hours. shadowing and 3 LORs.

Then it goes on to say that once my application is verified through CASPA, (which it was), my prerequisite coursework will be reviewed by the admissions team and forwarded for faculty review. They are rolling admissions and begin reviewing applications over the summer and start scheduling interviews in late summer/early fall and continue through March 1.

It's also still 36 seats.

Does anyone know around what time they typically send out interview invites? And/or how the interviews are usually laid out? Obviously this could all change due to covid but just curious

As far as interview invites, they will probably go out anytime between the end of July and early August. The email confirmation states they won't do it until late summer. Historically, that has been the timeline. As far as interview layout - hopefully in person since we are doing so well  here!

Hey guys, when it asks to list reasons for applying in the program materials section, did you actually list them like bullet points or write a brief statement? The 9999 character limit just confuses me. Thanks and good luck!

I wrote paragraph form, not bullets. I was pretty concise, def didn't use the limit

Anyone heard anything regarding interview invites yet?

It looks like last year's invites were sent out mid-August, hopefully, its the same time frame this year and we won't be waiting much longer.

      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!

      Figured I'd get this started! Does anyone have any up to date information regarding the probation status?

      I figured I would start a forum for the upcoming application cycle!

      Getting this forum started - Good luck to everyone!
