Is anyone attending Salus PCO in Fall 2018? And if you guys are, is there a facebook page? I'm trying to find other students to potentially room with.

Hello, I accepted an offer Salus a few weeks ago for the traditional program. If I remember correctly there is a FB page for all enrolled students. When we'll get an invite to that page, I don't know.

Not yet, I think a response will be given either tomorrow after their last interview for 2017 or Friday once they have a full faculty meeting.

Congratulations! Is Salus your top choice?

Yes! It is the only program I applied to. I'm a little worried about the tuition costs though. I was debating on applying to other schools that don't cost as much. SUNY instate is almost half the price! And you can be considered instate after your first year living in New York.

Yes, the tuition is pretty tough to look past unfortunately :/ I'll be looking into joining the Air Force/Navy for assistance. But of course attending a cheaper school wouldn't hurt. Lots of pro's and con's to weigh!

I'm pretty sure I'll be at PCO this fall (contemplating my other 2 scheduled interviews/waiting for feedback from MCPHS)!! Also will be looking for a room-mate...I know they start up a FB group to help with that process but I'm unsure when

Congratulations on your acceptances! Assuming you accept, will you be in the traditional program at Salus?

I’m also accepted into the traditional program. Deciding between PCO and OSU.

I have a question about the PCO program -- I know it's semester-based...but after checking out their website for the layout of the program, it looks like you only get a break between the fall/winter semesters. I'm used to getting a couple weeks off after every semester, but it doesn't look like that for the other semesters. Am I right in thinking that you only get 1 break between all 3 semesters that make up each year? Just was wondering :)

Tough decision there! Both are good schools

You appear to be correct from what I see in PCO's catalog. I think the limited number of breaks is so clinical experiences can be introduced as early as the 3rd year.

Interviewed there 3 weeks ago and still haven’t heard. Any current PCO students out there who heard back late when they were applying? Getting a little worried :|

Hello, Salus will make your class FB page public once the finalized list of matriculating students is released to us. We have your page created, it just isn't posted for you all yet because we want only students attending the university to be part of the page, instead of any student who applied and was given an acceptance letter. Congratulations on your decision, you chose a great university! :)

Hello,
I am a first year Salus student. We get a good three-four weeks off in the summer term where it is a true summer break. We are ending our semester May 1th this year. We have a three-week externship to complete during the summer (around June-beginning of July) which will basically be like a full time experience for three weeks and you can complete this at a location around/in your hometown. We start back up mid-july to begin Second year. I'm not sure about the other years for our class or for your class since they are making changes to our curriculum based on student feedback but this semester we also get a spring break (one week) and Easter break (four days) :)

Has anyone been able to access their MySalus account yet? I've had my Salus email set up for a while and was told we'd get access to the portal soon but it's been a couple months lol

I think I was able to access the portal less than a week after I set up my Salus email. The username should be what they sent you (without @salus.edu). For my password I can't remember if I put in the password they gave me or if it was my new one I changed it to. Try both! But currently my login for the portal is the new password I made up.

Hey all, pretty stoked to be coming to Salus! :) I'm from Canada so I'm terribly at a disadvantage at getting more opportunities to check out the area before the school year starts... Hopefully, the Facebook will be up soon and that housing is smooth!

Hey!! Does it take awhile for them to reply to your request to join the group? I've tried 3 times now (since mid Jan) and every time I go back to check it out it keeps saying "Join group" so I feel like they're denying me access hahah which is super weird. I don't want to keep bugging them, but I really want to check out what's going on in the group/reach out about roommates!! Should I call admissions maybe to see what's on the go?

Really? I just requested today and it was accepted a few hours later! Is your Facebook name the same as your actual name? And have you put down your deposit and what not? I was gonna say maybe they’re only allowing students who are actually matriculating and not just all accepted students? Maybe try reaching out and messaging an admin

Congrats! What day did you interview if you don’t mind me asking?

What was everyone's OAT score if they don't mind sharing?
I received an interview with PCO roughly two weeks ago with an average GPA, however my OAT scores are extremely low (retaking it soon), I received a letter but they didn't say my application was on hold/waitlisted or anything...what are my chances of getting in?

I got a 340, but my GPA is low for sure. They might wait for your retake scores and if those go well you should be set! If they do tell you they're waiting on the retake make sure you ask what score they're looking for.

I interviewed for PCO on Thursday March 1st. Approximately how long did everyone have to wait before hearing back?

I had my interview on Feb 22, and they sent me an email that I should hear back in 2 weeks. It's been more than 2 weeks and I have called and emailed them. They said that committee will have to make a decision and they will notify me. Did this happen to anyone?

Same thing happened to me and I interviewed the same week as you.

Not sure, but stay hopeful! You'll probably hear back within the next 2 weeks or so. The final matriculation fee is due April 1st so hopefully you'll know around that time from people who aren't paying the final deposit.

I don't know how they offer admission to people on the list, but I interviewed on February 22nd, was put on the standby list on February 28th, and got off the list and accepted on March 29th! So don't give up hope! I'm sure more spaces will open up.

Your acceptance letter should indicate what needs to be fulfilled. As long as you complete whatever is missing and submit it to the school by the deadline then you should be good!

I know what I need to fulfill according to my acceptance letter, I was just curious what others might be needing to complete! Thank you!
