Hi elleaie,
Did you also get a letter in the mail or was it just a phone call from the committee? I'm trying to figure out how one finds out whether they're accepted. Ms. Landel stated accepted students would receive a large envelope so I wasn't sure of that is what I should look out for, or a phone call or email.


Hello- I received a call and then a few days later the envelope in the mail. Hope this helps!

Thank you for your response. It seems you heard back a week and a half or so after your interview. Wow Congrats! I interviewed April 4th so hoping for the best outcome. Thanks again!

Does anyone know if the committee makes a decision right after interviews or do they wait to see where one is based on the interview scores and go from there and decide whether one is on the waitlist? Or do they wait until the last few interviews are over? How soon after the interview, did those accepted or those on the wait list find out they were in or alternates? I've seen some find out in as little as a week and a half.

Yes, I interviewed 2/28, received a call 3/10 and the letter in the mail 3/13. I believe the committee meets right after the interview date and makes their decisions right after, not 100% sure though. I know how anxious you must feel! Goodluck!

I would read what elleaie said in the previous page, sums it all up! Most importantly and I know everyone says this, but really try to relax, be yourself, and remember why you want to be a PA, what a PA is, and why PH is important to you. Other than that, there's no real way of preparing. Everyone is so nice and welcoming, so relax and enjoy! Goodluck!

Thank you!! I actually was invited to the 4/4 interview initially but they were kind enough to move my date b/c I was leaving the country the following morning.

 

Good luck to you! From prior posts it sounds like they may have another interview date next month so hopefully you're on the list!

Has anyone from the 4/4/17 meeting heard back yet? When does the committee make a decision, I thought they met right after each interview? Thanks everyone, any info is appreciated.

Hi. I know they were off for about 2 weeks due to Passover so hopefully we will hear something in the next week or two. Good luck!

For last year, I was notified via email one week after that I was on the waitlist. I received a call roughly 3 weeks after for a seat and received the letter a week after that call. Hope this helps! The faculty have been very busy this month, so please be patient if you have not heard back yet. It has been a very busy month since we're towards the end of the semester.

Hey, what place were you at on the waitlist? High, medium or low?
I've heard of people getting in at the medium level, but not sure at the low level? I'm a low alternate..
