Are you living there already or have you decided that is where you will move to from michigan? Do you know of any other forums where other class of 09' nova students interact? it would be nice to know eachother before we get there. Im gonna email Pauline Dyda to see if she knows of anywhere.

Thats where I have deceided, my parents have a vacation home in west palm beach so every time we go down I have visited the orlando area and looked at apartments. I don't know of any other website that students interact from nova but I spoke to pauline recently and she said that they do a meet and greet before we start school and this year it would be in march sometime, but she will send out a mass email when she has news for all of the students. she told me that she still has 56 interviews lined up and she still has to schedule some so I don't think that they have deceided on the entire class yet.

I had an interview at orlando and at ft. lauderdale they are very laid back for the essay, and with the interview you have 3 people in the room and one of them is pauline dyda who is very nice. The questions are pretty basic at ft. lauderdale they ask questioons more about your application and essay. At orlando they ask a lot of opinion and real world questions. Good luck!

Thank you for your help. Did you get in? How long did it take for you to hear back from them? Nova Orlando is my first choice since I live about 1hr and 15mins away.

I got into both of them and they told me by phone three days after i interviewed but I don't know what the average wait time to find out is. I talked to pauline dyda the other day and she told me she still had 56 interviews set up and even more to schedule after that so I have a feeling they still have a lot of students to add to the class. I had a hard timie deceiding which one to go to but i deceided on orlando, I just got a better feeling there, like they cared more about the pa program, at ft. lauderdale it was so busy, they had do interviews, and pt, dental, nursing all on the same day and they didn't know what program u were with or who you were. Good luck!

Anyone have an interview at Nova Orlando on Feb 6?? That's when mine is. I'm glad to hear that they still have a bunch of interviews scheduled, that gives me hope that they haven't filled up too much of the class yet. I really want to get in too, I go to UCF now and live in Orlando and I love it :)

I hear Nova is kind of expensive. But even though Florida is pretty hot Orlando might be a fun place to live if there is any time for fun.

How long did it take to here from Nova in Orlando after the supplemental application was mailed? I've been chronically checking my status box under admissions and waiting, waiting, waiting....

I got the call that I got an interview about a month after i submitted the supplemental application, once I got the interview it only took 3 days until i got the call that i got in. If it had been more than a month I would call and check just to make sure, I know they are interviewing through april though. good luck!

Thank you for your answer superscooper. Hopefully I won't miss that call. Do you know if they call everyone for an interview? Also, what is your background? Just curious, you seen like a very good candidate. I wish you the best and I'm sure you'll love Florida.

I am not sure, but when I talked to pauline on the phone she said they call people for the interview and if they did not get an interview they get a letter in the mail. I graduated from michigan state university last may with a bachelors in human biology and I had around 300 hours of working in an urgent care while I was in college and during my year off. Good luck and thanks, I am hoping I love orlando, I have visited a few time and it so nice there.

I received a letter stating that I am missing a class, which I recently took. I already sent in a transcript to Nova, although it appears they haven't received it as of yet. I hope this doesn't affect my chances. Did anyone with outstanding pre-req's get accepted?
Congratulations to all!!!!! I hope that soon I can celebrate as well. In the meantime, still waiting and all I got was the "dreaded" letter.

I wouldn't worry I think the transcripts go through the ft. lauderdale office and it takes some time to input them so that Orlando can see them. I would call in a few days to find out if the ft. lauderdale office has received them and is processing, but I was told that as long as the class is complete before may then you can be accepted on the basis the class if finished, so you should be fine. Good luck!

Be yourself, know what a PA does and the difference between a PA and ARNP. Pauline is so nice and she makes the experience less stressful. Answer the questions honestly, they are looing at your thinking process and most answers are not right or wrong they just want to see how your thinking process works. I had a great interview and they made me feel very confortable. I was accepted and will attend NSU orlando it was my first choice. I work with a PA who works with some NSU students and he says they are great. Good luck and hope this helped

Is there anyone that is willing to say what their GPA was since they got accepted to NOVA or any school? Just really looking to compare. The website and anything I have read don't really give an accurate range they just say the minimum is a 3.0 and I know that the average is much higher. Thanks!

I also had that problem and I ended up picking orlando, but I was a tough decision. When i talked to pauline and judy they both said you just kinda know, you have a feeling, and I felt that orlando was the place for me. They were so nice there and they are focused on the pa program. ft. lauderdale was nice but they have so much going on with other programs and they have a campus, so its more of a college life. I wanted a place that the sole focus was the pa school and that was what i got with orlando.

what about the essay writing exercise for NSU Orlando? What kind of essay writing is it and does your acceptance depend on it?

- Was this comment helpful? Yes / No (1) Reply - Report abuse

jkl in Oviedo, Florida

Yes, your acceptance depends on it. The essay exercise is the first part of the interview. You have about an hour and you can talk to other applicants in the room with you. But, every applicant has a different topic. My question was about our current health care system. I think all the topics are just opinion based. The real interview comes after, but it is pretty relaxed.

Hello! I am aiming to apply for next year's class. I have worked in Healthcare for 5 years on the technology side, and have come to the realization that I'd much prefer working with patients. Currently, I volunteer at Florida Hospital Orlando. Does anyone have any other suggestions as to how I can get additional clinical experience?

Thanks!
