  1. I called yesterday, and Christian said no one has been taken off the waitlist yet
  2. I interviewed 11/13 and haven't heard back yet. They said at the interview it would be 10-12 weeks though.. hoping it's sooner!
  3. Last cycle, I was in a similar position as you. I received 3 interviews and was waitlisted at all 3 and ended up not getting in. My GPA was average (about 3.5), but I still felt I did fairly well on all 3 interviews. I tried my best, but overall I was just not confident in myself and I felt like I was not good enough. Fast forward to this cycle, and I know I have put in the work to become a great student and PA. It is important to show that you are motivated and passionate about pursuing this profession. Strive to be a lifelong learner. Do what you can to improve your application. In your case, you could try taking the GRE again, gaining more patient care/volunteer hours, shadowing PAs of various specialties in order to gain a more thorough knowledge of the profession. Also try doing mock interviews and if you can find a PA mentor to guide you through the process. Your application sounds strong, and getting 3 interviews is an accomplishment!! Just try working on your interview skills and find PA programs that align with your personal values. This cycle, I received 9 interview invites and was accepted! Just don't give up
  4. Overall GPA: 3.51 sGPA: 3.49 PCE: about 6500 hours as EMT and back office MA GRE: 309 Shadowing hours (3 PAs): 108 Volunteer hours: about 600
  5. I would say just try applying to more schools. My first time I applied to 7, got 3 interviews, waitlisted at 3. This year I applied to about 15 schools and have gotten 9 interview invites so far! I've gotten 1 acceptance, 1 rejection, 2 waitlists, and waiting to hear from the 2 others I've interviewed at so far. I have 2 interviews coming up, and 1 I couldn't attend. It's important to show that you are dedicated to pursuing this profession. And to show commitment by improving your application, whether it be retaking classes, volunteering more, networking (something that helped me A LOT this past year), obtaining more patient care hours, etc. I believe that is what has gotten me this many interviews. I feel like I've done so much better on my interviews this cycle compared to last cycle. It is just SO competitive, and you just have to find the school that is the right fit for you.
  6. I tried calling but it doesn't allow you to actually speak to someone.. it just has you leave a voicemail. So I might just email them to ask for an update
  7. I received an invite for 11/5, but I am not sure I will be able to attend. Trying to figure out travel plans!
  8. I'm interviewing 11/12! I interviewed here last year too so I'm hoping for the best!
  9. I called the other day and they said my application is still under review.. and I should hear back in the next month or so
  10. Not yet.. I interviewed August 3rd! Still hoping for the best haha
  11. I interviewed for the waitlist yesterday and received a spot on the waitlist!
  12. I'm flying in tomorrow and staying at Quality Inn! If anyone wants to meet up let me know ?
