  1. I couldn’t help myself so I called them and they said we should hear something before 5pm. Also they said that if any of the 120 people decline their interviews they will invite more to make sure they interview a total of 120.

  4. Most of us are all qualified to get into PA school. We all have the grades and the experience. Sometimes it’s the personal statement that could get you the interview, and the interview is what gets you the acceptance. I’m happy for those who got an interview. I hope the rest of us will have better luck at other schools.

  8. I got an interview invite today for the November 9 date. So I am assuming that slots open up as people decline/cancel their interview since I wasn't initially sent an invite. So don't give up hope! I was shocked to get the invite since I also thought they were done sending invites!

  9. I can tell you that I received an interview and I am not considered a competitive applicant. I have about 4 of the “preferences”, my last 60 is high but my overall GPA is low and my prereq was average. I have about 4000 hours of PCE when I submitted my application which fell under the moderate range as well. Hopefully there will be a second round sent out and you will be offered a interview because you have a lot of PCE!!

  12. Interviewing on 11/3-11/4! This is the first part of the email that was sent: "You've been invited to interview with The University of Tampa's Physician Assistant Medicine program! There are 4 different interview weekends available. Please choose the link corresponding to the one interview date desired and submit the RSVP survey to reserve your spot by Monday, 10/21/19 at 5:00 pm ET. Once you complete the survey, I will reach out to you individually by phone within one business day. Once a date is full, the link will no longer accept submissions." I would predict that offer

  14. Interview invite received for November 10th at noon! And although I'm STOKED to have been invited, I will be turning it down as I've already gotten into my top school. Best of luck to everyone interviewing! ..although I could just show up in jeans and a T-Shirt to make everyone else look better...

  16. I was originally scheduled to interview on November 1st but just gave up the spot as I will be accepting a seat at another program. Hopefully this frees it up for someone!!! Good luck everyone!

  17. They definitely just haven't sent anything out yet! This is my second time applying to PA school and it tends to feel like the waiting is a test in itself. When we get an email is out of our control, I'm just glad this forum exists! Wishing the best for all of you, keep hanging on! Be proud, we've all worked so hard to get here

  18. Hey all! Just received my interview invite today for 12/7 Tacoma interview and figured I’d start this thread to see if anyone wanted to meet up before!

  19. Interviewing 11/24-25! I would imagine they won't send out rejections until after the final interview dates (unless you're a hard no), as people could potentially decline interviews up until the day of and they will want to fill those spots. I would strongly discourage you all from comparing stats. I have received interviews from multiple schools and everyone's stats are all over the place for those I have interviewed with. For the school I received a rejection from, I had better stats than some people on the forums that got interviews and worse stats than others that received interviews

  20. Just a thought but do you think that b/c this is a newer school and they are on provisional accreditation that they are only interviewing people with perfect if not near perfect stats even though it says 3.0 last 60 hrs and 3.0 for the pre-reqs? I had 4 out of the 8 program preferences when you needed only 2, had around a 3.4 in both last 60 hrs & the pre-reqs, I know I had great letters of recommendation, and my patient care experience fell in the moderate range with 10k + hrs, and I applied super early in May??? Head scratcher to me that's all. Doesn't mean I won't excel in the program i

  21. It makes me wonder how we find time to actually care for anyone. Any clerk or petty tyrant anywhere in any process can ask for anything no matter the reason and it gets polished up as "patient safety" or some such nonsense. I know I went to school in the late 1800s but we didn't log anything. We worked on a rotation with broad guidelines about what we were supposed to cover and then we got an evaluation by a preceptor or department chief. I think this is when I'm supposed to shake my cane and say something about too much hoo-ha and flapdoodle over nothing. Nattering nabobs....

  22. I interviewed on 9/10. I was originally waitlisted but just received an acceptance call yesterday!!! I would love to chat with other accepted students.

  23. Yes and no. So how it works is that they review everyone who has interviewed after each new day of interviews. Yesterday was the most recent interview day. They look over people from that day first, accept people who really stood out, and then decide who they still might be interested in. Then they look over people who are still being considered (from the interested-but- not-yet-accepted list) and try to make some decisions. If they extend more interviews (which seems pretty likely), those folks will be reviewed first, followed by anyone else still under consideration. Does that make sense?

  33. Just to add cause I'm in your exact situation. I had two acceptances come in 3 days apart yet I still have interviews coming up. Here is what I doing... 1 - Decide from what you have in your hand. If you only have 1 put the money down. 2 - Rank the other schools to see if they are higher or lower than the accepted school TO YOU (this includes distance, costs, location, and other attributes you want from PA school). 3 - If you know the school falls below the accepted school, you can either decline the interview or if already interviewed, decline any offered 4 - Conti

  34. I believe so! I got an email from them a couple days ago asking me to send over my grades for my courses that are in progress and when I explained that those wouldn't be done until December she said that's fine and they are holding interviews in the spring.

  37. I also applied on the very last day but received an interview invite today for Oct 25th. So maybe they are still sending out invites, i would say to wait a few more days before asking.

  38. I spoke with the PA program this morning and they said today is the last day for verified applications to come through, and they will likely send out interview invitations next week if not earlier. Best of luck to all!

  39. Few insights, take them or leave them as you will. 1. Your screen name infers you are working in NYC - notorious for poor pay and unbelievable cost of living. Add in "six-figure student loan debt" and you will likely be financially insecure for years or decades. Move. Yes, you can. Yes, I know you love NYC, but it's (probably) killing your financial future living and working there. You can probably make 30% more, in an area that costs HALF as much, and therefore pay off $50-$70K/year in student loans. Hell, if you love NYC so much, move back in 3 years when you have the student l

  41. You're putting the card ahead of the horse a bit, but what I will say is not knowing anything about this particular transplant residency and what it offers, you would probably be best served by a more generalized surgical/critical care residency where you will learn valuable procedural and operative skills and a good, broad physiology base. I doubt you'd have any problem getting a job in transplant surgery after a surgical residency if that's what you end up wanting to do, but you may pigeon hole yourself a little bit if you focus just on transplant in residency.

  46. It was a very relaxed atmosphere! Make sure you know where the entrance is in advance because it is a little confusing. You need a photo ID to get in so don't forget it! They offered breakfast bars and waters and juice and they had an info session with questions at the start and then everyone just waits in a lounge and talks as they are called up. Then around early lunch time they brought in pizza. My experience was they were very conversational, so don't freak out. They seemed very friendly and really emphasized that we make the right choice for the right fit for us as well. Seems like a grea
