I know... hopefully EVMS works fast :D. Thank you, it's really exciting, but my husband and I are ready for a new adventure. Hopefully Virginia will be it, I'm excited. Is this the last school you are waiting to hear from?

The only school for me 😬
Fingers crossed for your journey to end in VA!

I've been checking my email since I applied by in January, knowing good and well I wouldn't hear anything. I just can't stop myself from pressing refresh you know. For those who applied last cycle and interviewed, how did you guys like the area and the school? I've never been to a PA school interview and I have no idea what to expect. Fingers crossed that I hear good news from EVMS.

I interviewed last year and loved the school/area! Hoping for another shot at them this year. I am also from Michigan!

I didn't interview last year, but I've been to campus for tours and meetings. It's a lovely campus and the staff is amazing IMO. I heard that the interviews are laid back and not high stress.

Did you get any kind of feedback from the interview?

@MA11, while I haven't applied with EVMS before, I know they don't give immediate feedback post interview. Rather, they give you the option of sitting with admissions at a later date to discuss what areas of improvement they recommend.

@smithta thank you for following up. Sorry MA11 for not responding sooner. One thing I do know they are focusing on is being one of the most community service oriented schools so volunteering is highly recommended!

Even if you don't get an interview they offer advice via email on how to improve. They did tell me to start volunteering again as it had been a year or two since I had, and how they really value it and it is quite favorable on paper.

Though I applied for the 2016-2017 cycle, I submitted my app for the 2017-2018 cycle just in case. 

 

Best of luck everyone! I hope we all interview! :)

You do remember that it wouldn't be due until March 1st right? And they won't even look at it until then?

I am aware! Better early and done, in my opinion!

 

Best of luck, everyone!

Is there any hope we could hear something before June?

Unlikely, the website states in June and last years we were notified first and second weeks of June. Although I am actively checking my email every day anyway!

Oh I keep checking mine too.  We could potentially hear something next week!  Hopefully "June" means like June 1st. :-)  Good luck to everyone!
