  1. Safe to assume that if we havent gotten a supplemental, then you're rejected?
  2. I also received an interview invite for Sept 13-14th via email! Verified - 6/24 Data sheet received - 7/31
  3. The only conformation I received was via email: "We are pleased to inform you that your completed application for admissions to the Manhattan Physician Assistant program has advanced to the PA Admissions Committee for formal review. You will be contacted of any changes to your status as they become available. All final decisions will be made by approximately June 1, 2020. Sincerely, Touro College SHS Office of Student Services"
  4. Submitted June 22nd and still havent received any sort of conformation....
  5. Submitted and received a conformation similar to what others have mentioned above. Good luck to everyone! Is anyone here an employee at Lenox Hill by any chance?
  6. Verified June 24th. Still waiting for a conformation from YORK
  7. Confirmed that they received my application on 7/6 but haven't heard back since then. Hoping to be able to get a supplemental and to interview!
  8. I would like some help as well My email is mly3025@gmail.com Looking forward to hearing from you
  9. It's doable. I worked full time Mon - Friday 8am to 4pm and had classes Tuesday through Thursday starting at 4:10pm till about 9-10:30pm in the evenings. Got A+s in my classes. It takes a lot of sacrifice and dedication. Yea it sucks when you can't go hang out with friends all the time or feel like you have time for yourself, but if you keep your end goal in mind, you can do it. It's all about time management learning effective ways to study. Remember - work smart, not hard.
  10. Thank you for believing in me! To be honest, I'm having a lot of anxiety over the application process, mainly because im afraid my low GPA will set me back and makes me less competitive. I was looking at the statistics of a lot of the schools in my area that Im applying to and they have higher averages of accepted GPAs. Im hoping that schools will see that my past credits and determine my merit through my upward trend. I only worked for one of the years while attending classes (which was the hardest thing i've done so far imo) so Im also hoping that in that regard the ADCOM can see that I can handle a busy workload. Has anyone ever been in a situation similar to mine? What did you do to make yourself stand out and justify yourself throughout the application process?
  11. Sorry, should have mentioned it in the initial post. Im a Nuclear Medicine Technologist that works in a cardiology stress lab unit in the hospital. It's similar to Xray imaging via Rad Tech's but we look at the physiology of a patient with an injectable isotope.
  12. Hi everyone. I am currently applying this cycle with these stats. According to my calculations: cGPA = 3.12 sGPA = 3.23 These grades are the combined total of all my classes, including undergraduate (cGPA 2.88 and sGPA 2.96). I took post-bac classes (53 credits) and received A's in all them, which include major pre reqs required by most PA schools. For one year, I worked full time while taking courses. GRE = 309 total. 154 Quant (55th percentile) 155 Verbal (69th percentile) and 5.0 writing (93rd percentile) Total PCE ~ 4057 hours for about 2 years of working full time + per diem. I am continuing to work full time so this number will increase. Total HCE/Volunteer ~ 100 hours at a senior center Shadowing ~ 585 hours (480 of which was during work hours where I would directly work with a PA throughout my shift) Leadership role as a board member of a student association group and extra curricular's involving dance choreographer during my time as an undergraduate student. I may also be TA-ing microbology or anatomy this spring. I feel strong in my letters of recommendations and am currently in the process of trimming and editing my personal statement draft. I am continuing to shadow PA's after work now that my school semester is over, but I do not think its a good idea for me to continue taking courses since it would require a bunch of other classes to bump my GPA up even higher. Besides this, what can I do to stand out more and make myself a better applicant to offset my low GPA?
  13. Figured I'd get this started. Good luck to everyone applying!
