  1. Thanks for posting your metrics. We're pretty similar (I didn't get my application done until the end of June though, so I haven't heard anything). If you don't mind my asking, were you told anything special regarding your essay or anything else? I'm basically looking for what else my programs are looking for outside of my (not-so-great) GPA. Thanks, and congrats!
  2. Also on the waitlist, which surprised me because I applied SUPER last minute. Considering this was my first glimmer of hope in my second cycle, I'm pretty excited just to make somebody's list. Good luck everyone!
  3. Mind telling me when your application went into "in review" status? I was a slightly later applicant, so I'm still waiting to hear back. Thanks!
  4. Anybody heard anything for post-September?
  5. I'm pretty sure they go until they're full, so it depends on how many spots they fill from previous interviews. I don't know if my application was somewhat competitive enough to hang onto last year, or if they took *a LONG time to review it,* but I was confirmed in mid August and didn't get a rejection until, like, January. So when I tell people it could be a long waiting game, I'm not kidding
  6. Would you mind letting us know when you submitted your application? Us July babies are doing a lot of hand wringing
  7. I submitted the first week of July, and I haven't heard a peep as yet (congrats to all those who've been accepted!)
  8. So for starters, congrats on your interviews! From those of us struggling to get an interview, let me say: whoever offers you a spot first, take it. I'm not sure how Drexel runs its post-interview stages; whether they make a final decision on you right away or keep your app in the running pending other interviews later. I do know that if the latter case is true, you could be waiting a long time
  9. "General or Medical Genetics - Preferably with Lab (3-4 SCH): One course" I'd say the combination of "general," 3 credit hour option, and +/- Lab means that as long as it says "genetics" in the course title and it's at least 3 CH, you could probably get away with it. But you could always call/email the PA program admissions office and ask if you have a specific course in mind. I promise they won't bite.
  10. Like PArtnerincrime said: it's too early to worry. I didn't get an official rejection last year until like...January. I know waiting sucks, but that's really all you can do.
  11. No they'll send you a link to fill out if they officially deny your app.
  12. Hi ladies and gents, I applied to Drexel last year. They did monthly reviews and interview rounds. I applied late last year and then had trouble with CASPA so it was near August by the time I was officially verified, then I washed out all the way at the very end. They'll do interviews all the way into January if they don't fill all their spots. Timelines this year: had my app confirmed 6/5. So if I get an interview invite it'll probably be next month. Congrats to those with interviews already. Good luck to everyone still waiting.
  13. When was your caspa verified? I'm still sitting in limbo
  14. Thanks for including your verification date. Their "rolling admissions" policy seems like it's lagging behind this year (though I didn't submit until 8/1)
  15. Last year's forum makes it look like they take about a month to respond after you're verified. CASPA made a transcript entry error on my application and I got me the dreaded "you're rejected" auto-email, but they agreed to hold my app until CASPA fixed it. Sent them the corrected app 8/1 but I haven't heard anything either way now. I hear the official rejection is more involved than a regular email? Anybody have any insight? Getting anxious over here...should probably reach out.
