2012-2013 Application Cycle

Recommended Posts

Hope everyone is doing well, we are all very anxious at this point, I am sure. Anyone received any interview invites yet? I received an email today that my application is now under review (over a month after my CASPA was mailed).

 

Let's keep each other updated! :)

I got the email as well, nothing else since then. When I called they told me they don't start interviewing until October so they'll start sending emails in September. =)

My application was just mailed yesterday. After looking at all of your posts, I guess I have a wait ahead of me!

 

Does any one happen to know the stats (GPA and GRE) for the previous class?

I received an email 9/14 that said I was invited for an interview. However, I'm a bit confused about Barry's interview process. From some other comments it seems you are interviewed in groups of three. Do they do any personal interviews to get to know you better and ask us questions. Besides a bonding activity where they see how we work with others I'm a bit lost. If anyone who knows more about this can enlighten us would be very helpful.

@AcidBurn135, the interview consists of a small group interview of 3-6 people and you are presented an ethical dilemma. You discuss and debate it within your group, and then you present your decision to the entire interview group and administration. It is very laid back and meant to see how you interact and present yourself. Good Luck!

I am also hoping to get an interview at Barry. I submitted my application the beginning of August and they didn't say it was under review until I think at least a month later. Congrats on those that got interviews already!

Does anyone know if there was a personal interview stage or just the group interview? I am finding conflicting information on the matter. Seems odd to just have the group interview since it doesn't give the interviewer a chance to know the individual on a personal level.

How did you know did your application is under review? Through mybarry?

I was kept up to date about my application status both through MyBarry and Email. I was notified when they received my CASPA application. Notified to send my GRE scores, and finally when I was invited for interview.

Sorry about your rejection svasan1. When was your CASPA mailed? I haven't received any correspondence from MyBarry since my CASPA was mailed early Sep (after being completed in late Aug). I called about a week ago to ask if I could check my status on MyBarry. The lady said that my application was not yet under review, and nothing I can do until I receive an email notification for receipt of my materials.

it's ok. I have been put on an alternate list for another school so still have high hopes.

 

My caspa was mailed May 23.

 

The last email I got was Aug 22. "Thank you for your interest in Barry University’s Physician Assistant Program. Your application has been processed and is awaiting review by the Admissions Committee."

 

Then today i received the rejection letter.

kbrookshire1-My CAPSPA was mailed off August 31st. I called last week also and was told that my application is still not under review. I received the e-mail that my application has been processed but nothing since then. Let me know if you hear any thing else on your end!

do they extend offers for interviews via email? i have reason to believe my MyBarry account isn't working properly lol.

 

I am also very sorry to hear about those who received rejection letters. My application is still in limbo, somewhere...

They sent my interview invitation via my email. Make sure if you used two different emails for your MyBarry and CASPA you check both. Does anyone else have an interview in October? Mine is this Friday the 19th. Just seeing if anyone else from here will be there that day.
