Hi,

How long was it before you heard anything?

I applied for the program on April 8th and I havent heard anything yet. I called to check on my status the first week of May and they said they havent made a decision yet.

You might want email them to see what they say. If they say they are still waiting on a decision to be made, I would leave it at that. In my interactions with Barry, they have been very prompt and do exactly what they say. Good luck!

Took me almost 4 months to get a call. Had everything in by October for early decision and got a call in February. Don't hound them, but keep up with communication. Even thought the take applications throughout the year, I think the "deadline" for next year is May, so you are just getting to the end of the regular admission season and wait to see what happens. They are nice, and will answer your questions if you ask.

Hello again fyrace,

A couple of questions for you , if you don't mind.

1. I have heard that Barry is a great program. What are your impressions of the program and the reputation it holds?

2. What are some benefits of attending the Orlando cohort?

Thank you in advance for your reply.

You can search the web a bit more regarding the Orlando cohort, but two of the best reasons are ORMC is a level 1 trauma center and the other is Arnold Palmer/Winnie Palmer hospitals are like the 2nd in the nation for deliveries and you will get more OB and trauma experience then you can shake a stick at. I hear the clinicals are rough and hard, but I hear you are WELL prepared by the time you are done. Before the end of the first year you will be running your own room, part of the schedule as an "employee." Wolverine Anesthesia is a tough group to work with, but I hear the experience is fantastic and you come out well trained and experienced.

There are some people who take that amount of pressure as a bad thing, but when I am done, I know I will be ready. I also am choosing this area because I live nearby, so altogether it was a no brainer. Plus, the guy I shadowed a bunch was a Barry grad and he was fantastic so I have alot of respect for the program. Again, I hear the Orlando cohort is one of the hardest though.

I think Barry is a good school. I have been reading/researching alot and don't hear too many negatives (other than it is VERY hard). They have been around along time, I hear good things about their program director, and I am looking forward to starting. I know there are worse schools out there, and for as much money as you are going to pay, I want to know I got a great education, and I think Barry lives up to the challenge. I guess I will find out soon!

That is awesome info. I will definitely consider the Orlando cohort. Sounds like exactly what I am looking for.

If you get in and pick Orlando, let me know. I am trying to get contacts with the group. I am also starting the headstart program in the fall with Chem/physics and Prof Aspects. I was told by the school those who pick Orlando normally get their choice here. If you are coming from out of town I can help with familiarity of the area. Me and my family have lived in Central Fl for some time.

Anyways, good luck!
