  1. I would submit as soon as you can. If you wait until September, a lot of schools with rolling deadlines will already be a couple months into applications which can harm your chances of getting an interview at those schools. Also, the experience you gain in those few months most likely won't make a big enough impact on your application to be worth submitting late. That being said, are you applying to schools that will accept only the medical scribe hours?
  2. I currently have a MacBook Pro that's about 4 years old and I'm starting PA school in the fall. I'd like to get an iPad for notes, but I'm also worried about my MacBook getting close to the end of its life and would hate to have to buy a new laptop in addition to an iPad. Any advice? Would I be able to get by with an iPad and older laptop?

  4. Accepted from the 10/5 interview!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Waitlisted at Glenside from the 9/20 interview. They sent it to my old address even though I updated it as well, but Corrine emailed me my letter. Congrats to everyone accepted!
  6. Still haven't heard back from Glenside interview 9/20 but I'm in Michigan.. Are they being sent to permanent addresses?
  7. Just got the email that my application is under review. Anyone know how long it will take to hear back after that?
  8. Would you mind sharing your stats? Just wondering how good of a chance I have of getting an interview off the wait list!
  9. Got an email that I was waitlisted for an interview this morning. Has anyone been rejected? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. To those of you with interviews, when did you submit your app?
  11. Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. I was unsure if a class I took would count towards a prerequisite so I emailed them and they said that the admissions committee would need a course description. I sent them the course description about 3 weeks ago and after no response, sent them the syllabus about a week after that. I still haven't gotten a response. So at this point, I don't want to waste money on the application if it won't be counted. Basically I'm wondering if I should email them again at risk of being annoying or just give up trying to contact this program. Thanks in advance!
