  1. Was just accepted off the waitlist from one of my top choice programs and boy does it feel good!! I'm not sure how much ranking plays but this was certainly a reach school for me. Stats for this cycle: 27 y/o M cGPA: 3.11 sGPA: 3.22 GRE: 309. 4.5 writing. PCE: 4010 hours as a Nuclear Medicine Technologist Shadowing: 18 hours with an OBGYN PA // 30 hours with a senior cardiology PA // 75 hours with a GI PA Volunteer: 100 hours at a senior center // 50 hours as an Anatomy & Physiology tutor. Thousands of hours in extracurriculars as a choreographer and public relations officer LOR: MD director of our Nuclear stress lab, Senior Cardiology PA, Anatomy and Physiology professor Degree: BS in Nuclear Medicine Technology Interviews: 2 (still waiting to hear back from other programs) Waitlisted: 1 Acceptances: 1 Graduated undergrad in 2015 with a 2.9 cGPA and a 3.0 sGPA. Retook \~55 credits and recieved a 3.8 post-bac sGPA with classes in biochemistry, microbiology, A/P, organic chemistry, gen bio, gen chem, psychology, genetics, and calculus to name a few It IS possible to get into PA school with a low gpa! I had zero interviews on my first cycle. I Improved my second-time application by making my PS a KILLER, improving PCE hours, and making myself look like a well-rounded applicant to make up for my low GPA. I was asked about my GPA right off the bat during both my interviews and how I planned on succeeding in a rigorous didactic program so be prepared to answer these types of questions! I also felt that what gave me an advantage over others was the fact that I am in a niche field and that as someone whos trained in nuclear medicine I am able to provide insight on these types of studies and help my peers understand/read nuclear studies! Don't be afraid to flex on certain characteristics on your profile that makes you unique! Good luck everyone!
  2. I was accepted off the waitlist from a top program! All it takes is one acceptance!!
  3. Anyone else hear back from the 11/18 interview? Thought they said they would get back to us by the first week of December?
  4. I believe they said the 11/18 group was the last one. Those at that interview group should be hearing back this week, but it sounds like some people have already heard?
  5. I was verified by Pace on June 24th and got the interview invite via email.
  6. Received an invite to interview! Can anyone provide some insight on what the day was like for you? What was the interview format like? I've been hearing that it is 3 one on one's but also hearing that it was a 2 faculty to one interviewee format.
  7. If you were invited to interview, everyone has an even playing field at that point. Your hard skills (grades, gre score etc) get you the interview. The interview soft skills is what gets you into PA school at that point.
  8. Did the school mention how many interviews they would be giving out?
  9. Interviewed on the 13/14th and still haven't heard anything. Anyone else in this boat?
