    I am trying everything in my power to improve my application - applied for scribe jobs, volunteer positions at hospitals, inquired about additional shadowing. I'm having no luck as they're not allowing any new and/or non-certified workers for the time being for obvious reasons.

    I'm looking for ways that you all are improving your application since the cycle opens up this month. 

    So I just found out about the Texas Disaster Volunteer Registry (Covid-related). That would look fantastic on an application if you volunteered in a time of crisis. I think they also have non-medical people that can volunteer (I might be mistaken) but anybody with a license or certification would also be put to good use. I just signed up for it and it was pretty simple! Doesn’t hurt to try.

    I'm not so much concerned about shadowing as I have plenty of shadowing hours. Apparently I need PCH to improve my application which at this point feels impossible. 

    I've been looking into ways to get certified to do literally anything in the medical field so I will message you for sure. Thanks. 

    I’d say do a fast paced CNA course (I did mine in 3 weeks) to get that certification and start working in a hospital, but idk if they’re even doing those courses right now. Kind of seems too late/bad timing with all that’s going on.

    I got waitlisted and have yet to receive a ranking. Is this the same for everybody else? I’m just dying to get my ranking and it appears they’re still trying to find people to fill the waitlist. /:

    I found out on 2/22 last year my waitlist rank, but they weren’t still finding people to fill the waitlist. Maybe they just need a couple more, don’t worry! I moved from #27 in February to #14 eventually. Wasn’t hardly any movement after April though, just FYI.

    I have just accepted that since I haven't heard anything, then its a NO. I am already getting registered to shadow more and further build my resume for next year. Good luck to everyone, and congratulations to those who got in. It seems like a wonderful program and I cant wait to apply again for next year. 

    That’s probably best! Last year I kept hanging onto hope even though I knew it was likely a no. I should’ve started preparing sooner.

    I haven't heard anything. I interviewed 9/20. I'm assuming at this point it's a "no" but they haven't even sent a rejection. It'd be nice if they would let us know even if it is a no. 

    Yeah that’s how it was last year too. I’m pretty sure it was a no for me in January, but they didn’t tell me until late April. Had me waiting around for no reason.

    I was accepted on January 21st. After accepting and paying the deposit did anyone hear anything else from them ? I haven’t heard anything since they sent me my email and login information. Just wanting to make sure that’s normal ??

    I got this after paying my deposit:

    “The next steps will come from PA Butler some time later (probably mid-late spring) as she gets the information ready.”

    So we just gotta be patient!

    Has anyone tried to contact the program? I interviewed on September 20th, and have not heard back from them. I have received an acceptance at another program and have been attempting to get in touch with UTRGV to see if they would happen to know the status of my interview, but I haven’t had any luck. I’ve emailed them and called them.  

    Have you heard back from them yet?

    I just received an invite to interview on 02/17 as well! Looking forward to meeting everyone! Does anyone who has interviewed previously have any insight as to the group activity and the writing sample portions of the interview?

    Thanks so much!

    In order to be fair to everyone who’s interviewed, all I’m gonna say is that it’s very straightforward. There’s really no extra preparation needed. You’ll know what to do/write - they don’t try to catch you off guard, they just want to see what kind of person you are.

    I was just about to ask if anyone has done this! I just got accepted to another school today, but I still love UTRGV and would like to know my status. I also interviewed in September. They said to contact them if this happens, so hopefully they will answer soon. I interviewed in September of the previous cycle also, and didn’t find out until the following April that I wasn’t accepted.

    Hi all,

    I did receive email saying they are considering my application for interview  too. Does any one knows what that means? Is it only sent to short listed possible interview invitees? Thanks in advance. 

    They’re basically saying you’re not rejected and that they’re still going through applications so you still have a chance of being considered. I got that email but already got an interview invite yesterday
