    For anyone who closely follows this and/or other threads comparing yourself to others and getting panicked when you don't get that phone call on the day/hour you were expecting: I get it. It's extremely hard to get a type A applicant to desensitize to the idea of having to trust the process and be willing to give up a locus of control; however, whenever you do learn to do so, you'll enjoy the process and appreciate your fellow applicants and their own victories much, much more. Do not panic, do not wish failure upon your peers, and do not despair or give up until you've gotten that final rejection -- even then, don't give up... PA programs love an applicant with some grit and a positive attitude. I am not writing this because an act of providence has occurred and I am reeling from the high that is an acceptance to PA School -- on the contrary, I received a rejection and a waitlist today (no acceptances thus far, in fact) -- I just want everyone to know that they aren't alone in this process, what they are feeling is natural, and that it's all gonna work out in due time.

    Hey everyone! Just wanted to bring a new perspective. We are more than just our stats! Try to focus less on that Yes that’s something schools look at for academic success, but UTSW (and other schools!) believes deeply in their mission statement. I would say that if their mission statement is something that resonates with you, maybe take a look at your essay and see if it was conveyed! See if the experience you have aligns with their mission (volunteering!). This is one school of many, and as it was said beautifully before, some rejections may have been given out not because you aren’t capable, but they may see something in your application that indicates an institution-student mismatch. Also, remember it is SO much harder to get in if you are out of state. Don’t feel discouraged! You all are smart and capable and even if UTSW isn’t the right school for you, it doesn’t mean PA isn’t the right career for you. Remember your passion and find a school that fits that passion! If it is UTSW, make sure your application shows it!! Sincerely, good luck to all of you!

    Typically UNE will conduct a round of interviews, accept (reject, and/or waitlist?) a number of applicants with two weeks of the interview date, and then schedule a subsequent round of interviews. This process is repeated until all seats in the program have been filled. Interviews have continued through November and December in prior years. I interviewed on 9/18. One week later, I am anxiously awaiting the program’s decision.

    I just received a formal letter of rejection from the program, post-interview. I wish all of my fellow applicants the best of luck on all of your future endeavors, whether that be at ATSU, another program, or even another career. Know that although I did not get accepted, I will still continue to monitor this thread, cheer everyone on, and pray for your continued success! Much Love.

    The interview process was very straight forward and simple. You will be divided into 3 groups and will rotate through 3 different activities, which consists of 2 faculty interviews, a campus tour, and a writing assignment! It is very, very relaxed, so do not stress about anything at all!!!

    Just because a qualified applicant (great stats and accepted to multiple other programs) is rejected from UTSW that doesn't mean the school is missing out. In fact, UTSW saw a deficiency in those applicants that maybe the other programs missed or it would be a student-institution mismatch. It is a hit to the ego but it is what it is unfortunately.

    I’m sure it will. I sent my biochemistry transcripts on Tuesday, from UNE (regular priority usps), CASPA received it on Thursday. My counselor was able to verify the grade almost immediately. That made me believe that they will have your grade as soon as you receive the email from caspa. BTW: UNE is in Maine and CASPA is in NY. I sent one to myself and I received it today (FL).

    I LOVE this statement and I wanted to add to it: Yes, I did get accepted. Last year, I did not. Yet, I was not devastated nor did I lose any faith. I know this was my calling. I'm a believer in Christ and I knew that my time would come. At the right moment. At the right time. Even if you're not--the same applies. What helped my app this year was the dramatic change in my application: higher level classes, more diverse volunteer experience, more PCE, etc. I truly think they like to see that mixed with a genuine personality. Good luck to everyone.

    Hi! Last year, I believe we received a snail mail letter with our interview invitation along with what to expect on interview day. The confirmation email (the one we receive after sending our confirmation of attendance) indicates that conference documents will be sent out a few days prior to interview day! We had 3 interviews total. Each time with 2 other interviewees and 2 interviewers from faculty/staff. We also had a student panel and a group activity. Overall I sensed that the school genuinely wants to get to know you as a person. I would say be yourself, the best and authentic version of you! I think that a current student posted the format on the main thread for this year if you want to check out their advice/take on it as well!

    So, do you have a patient/provider relationship with this patient? If not, you might have a cause to approach the other provider and confront him/her, but I'm going to proceed on the assumption that this is your patient, because it fits the info you gave, and it gives me reason to comment further. 1) You owe your patient the truth as you see it. Lying by omission may violate beneficence, non-maleficence, or probably both: there is no way stating a diagnosis contrary to evidence is in the patient's own best interest. Now, you don't need to throw the other provider under the bus right away, but you can say. "He said you have anemia? [to continue with the fake example] That's odd, because the CBCs on dates X, Y, and Z are all normal. I'm not sure what he was thinking, but I can't see how that can be correct." Best outcome is if the lying provider corrects the lie. 2) If they can't trust this other provider to explain the truth, you owe a referral to someone unrelated to the probably dishonest provider to clarify the truth for them. 3) You may have an internal duty to report dishonesty. You may have a duty to report dishonesty to the medical board. You may have a duty to report insurance fraud. But in my mind, those are all secondary to your obligation to find the truth for your patient, and I would consider getting all the facts together and talking with YOUR boss about what your obligations are. Of course, if they say, "don't report it" and you think you need to, you need to do so regardless of consequences, so if and when it does come to light, you may need a new job and a whistleblower attorney, and/or be functionally blackballed.

    I know how you feel...even though this is my first time applying. I thought I did the best I could. I tried to think back on any mistakes that I may have made during the interview. But I feel like, because it’s such a competitive process, it may not be something that you did wrong. It could be just that other people did it better: had better presentation, more articulate, what they were looking for, etc.. I would think if you received an interview, you are already ahead of the curve...Anyhow, probably this is just how I cope with the rejection I also feel discouraged, but not defeated. Let’s be sad for a day, then move on and be better the next!

    and now the dear leader refuses to agree to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses, saying "we will just have to see". Congrats, he has officially gone full autocrat. Putin would be proud.

    Cardiovascular system; I used to copy facts from old encyclopedias about the heart when I was young-weird I know. Also my daughter ironically was born w/ TOF but I loved cardio even before that. Would love to do CV surgery as a specialty-if I get accepted somewhere for school!!
