  1. I am excited to say that I was accepted into the program on January 5th. I can't wait to meet everyone in May!
  2. They will explain the activity when you get there, but it is nothing you can prepare for.
  3. There really is no way to prepare for the questions you will see in the mmi. Best advice I can give is be yourself, have fun, and shake off each room before you enter the next. Good luck!
  4. Congrats. I would strongly advise you to not give out the interview questions to others.
  5. Briezzy explained what to expect perfectly. They did not have coffee at our interview but if you ask during your tour they will show you the school starbucks.
  6. Hey Allen, Generally this means you did not meet their prelim requirements. I would be happy to take a look at your application/stats and give some recommendations about what you can do to improve it. It took me 2 1/2 years of classes to boost my gpa before I was able to apply, so I have some experience in the matter. Feel free to PM.
  7. Haven't you already interviewed and been accepted to a texas program? Might be time to relax... and celebrate!
  8. Curious if that was sent to your eraider email or the one you assigned through caspa.
  9. From my understanding, utsw does look at apps as they "roll in" but they don't select you for interview/rejection right away. Each round of interviews they revisit apps that were looked at before. Final decisions are made later.
  10. There is a supplamental app you have to do. And fee to pay
  11. Noticed that as well. Is other an option? I would put that and in the improvement box say "since the 2016 cycle I have..". Good luck this cycle!
  12. Gre score goes to utsw and not caspa. Capsa won't be able to confirm but if the gre site says it was sent you are good.
  13. Look through the 2016-2017 thread.. each year are generally the same tkmeline
  14. Get a cert so you can rack up pce hours right away. Emt or ma will work. Start volunteering where you can. Yes you have to post your PhD grades but lucky for you most schools look at only undergraduate grades. PA school is a full time experience and schools know that. Your student aid will include living expenses. Any school will publish how much.
  15. It's hard to say if the class is filled or not but based on the member count for the Facebook group there are 41 accepted students. KHA
  16. Short answer is YES! I was an mlt before I took a research job to give me more time to complete pre reqs. My biggest mistake was not taking an emt class before anything else to allow myself to gain pce. I was waitlisted this year and am currently finishing an emt program. Learn from my mistake and take it asap! Good luck!
  17. Very interesting. Thanks for the info, Temp. There is still hope for all of us on the waitlist. KHA.
  18. Based on the prior years thread, #32 was pulled off the alternate list in April.
  19. Same as Breizzy, I interview on 10/10 and was waitlisted on 1/3. I like your motto but we should shorten it to KHA. To all those who have been waitlisted..KHA!
  20. Timon, I've read your posts for about three years now, and you seem like a solid person.
  21. Not a pa, yet, but I remember reading several horror stories about the wife and husband office combos.. might be smart to ask if any family works in the clinic/department.
  22. Hi Small_e, I am unable to compare UTHSCSA because you haven't given much detail about your accepted program/location, but I will tell you why UTHSCSA is my first choice. First off, it checks all of the boxes I look for in a program: 100% pance rate, long tenured faculty and an established academic curriculum. More importantly, their mission, vision, goal and objectives, all align greatly with me and why I have a desire to enter the PA profession. They are looking for students who will become leaders in the community by serving those most in need (rural and undeserved regions). They also put a big emphasis on training students to enter primary care, which is why they dedicate eight rotations to the "primary care clinical core". Finally, all the students I spoke with during interview had nothing but high praise for the faculty and staff, and made it feel like they are one big family. Best of luck!
