Scholl, Temple, Kent, and CSPM. Im a pre-pod though, so what do I know?
What is your top school? If you're waiting on AZPOD, I would keep two more interviews that are also of your top schools because it gives you some backups of course. However, I would pick Kent and Temple.
Go to at least 3.
You can look at board numbers, pass rates, residency placements all you want.
However most pre-pods do not realize a strong candidate will do well despite the numbers reported by each program. High scorers will keep scoring high.
Go to as many as you can. Don't get sucked into the SDN hive-mind. Formulate your own opinions.
If weather, cost, proximity to home, whatever factor is most important to you, go off of that first. Then pick 2 more and attend the interviews unless your 1st one absolutely clicked.
You may end up liking a program you never even considered. Certainly happened to me and many other people I interviewed with.
Got an II from Kent State! It's my top choice right now!
Got an II to Kent and just got accepted to New York!
Just got accepted to Scholl! Happy Friday!
I hope everyone is having a good and successful application cycle so far! Please don't forget to fill out the interview feedback form to keep it updated with current interview questions/experiences for those that have yet to interview and those who will be applying next cycle.
Accepted to Kent and Scholl! Interviewed at DMU today. Can’t wait to hear from them about a final decision. Withdrew my application from Barry, CSPM, and NYCPM (Withdrew from Temple and Western earlier this cycle).
How long did it take for you to hear back from New York?
For those who have been accepted to DMU, when/how did you find out about scholarship? When I was accepted to Kent the scholarship amount was included in the acceptance letter, and wasn't sure if DMU did the same.
I was sent an email the day after my acceptance
About a week, it was very reasonable.
Accepted to Temple! Found out the same day as interview.
nothing makes days go by slower than waiting for interviews and acceptances....
We all waiting on Temple?
Pm'd you I called them
Can someone please explain where your cumulative science GPA and cumulative GPA is on your application? I am in a graduate program so there isn't any concrete GPAs?! Is it overall GPA...?
The cGPA and sGPA is calculated based on your transcript that you sent to AACPMAS.
Where is that located on your application? Are we able to see those numbers?
It is not located in your application but you should know your GPA with your institution's database.
I got confirmation through email that AACPMAS has received all my transcripts. my question is am I able to view what my overall GPA is with the breakdown of sGPA and cGPA or it will show after I submit my application?
You submit first. And, once your application is verified then you can see all the breakdowns on one page.
Graduate programs have a separate GPA calculation that has nothing to do with your undergraduate courses or pre-reqs.
Programs will take upward trends and strong GPAs from SMPs and Post-bacs into consideration during interviews.
If you are talking about a combined accelerated BS/MS than I do not know, but I would imagine they separate the GPAs in the same way.
It is. You go to the check status tab and download the application next to one of the schools you applied to. Itll have your GPA breakdown
Still remember downloading mine.
What a beat down.
So I took CNA courses and became one....but I haven't actually worked as a CNA in the field (other job came up that didn't involve wiping butts lol). Now I did do all the patient care required to become a CNA in California (~160 hours) so I do have hands on experience obviously. But can I include it in the healthcare experience section even though I never worked as a CNA?
I have been volunteering doing triage as a CNA for a free clinic taking vitals and stuff so I will include that as a separate entity since it is not related to the CNA thing but I'm just wondering if it will look odd if I put that I am a CNA without ever working as one lol.
You mean 160 hours of clinicals? Did you actually do anything direct-patient related?
Wouldn't look odd at all.
If you did it, put it on your resume.
You can explain to them if they bring it up.
is there option to submit your resume?
Yeah. We did 5 days in class going over didactic things.
Then it was 3 weeks (Mon.-Fri. 7am-5pm) at a skilled nursing facility where we did ALL patient/resident care (showers, bed baths, brief changes, feeding, putting a dressing if a pressure ulcer was forming). The actual employees talked us through it the first week making sure we did it correctly, then we were on our own for the next 2 weeks. We only had to be supervised during blood pressures. Everything else was up to us.
looks like pretty good clinical hours.
mine were 7-10 days only. We didn't do as much hands on, but rather watched.
but now, 4 years later I am doing everything at my job.
I would put your training and experience down at experience section of the app.
Under the “Program Materials” section, some schools will allow you to upload your Resume.
Accepted today to Barry with a very generous scholarship >$10k each year (don't want to post the exact amount since it might give me away); still waiting to hear back from the other two schools I interviewed at. Not sure if I'll continue interviewing at this point.
Each year? wow
I thought they renew based on rank or something
Yes I have to maintain a 3.0 GPA each year to maintain it.
EDIT: I just looked at it and I would have to maintain a 3.25 GPA.
Accepted to DMU! Interview 10/6
Study hard! That's a great scholarship.
Definitely! I feel very fortunate. Thank you!
Accepted at DMU and also interviewed on 10/6 haha. Think I’m gonna take this one and should be submitting my deposit within the next week or two!
Accepted to DMU! Was super impressed by the interview and highly considering putting that deposit down
Also did I mention I interviewed 10/6 too?
Submitted my app today at 3am and already received Interview invite.
Interview invite to DMU. This will be my last interview; withdrew from the other schools I did not interview at just now
Interviewing DMU and Scholl and I'll be deciding between the two. Cancelled the rest
I have applied only to DMU and Scholl
Getting pumped about my Scholl interview!!
Good luck & have a great time! The students were really helpful at lunch!
Just interviewed at DMU.. and wow that school is absolutely amazing. So nice.
