  1. Hello, I applied to PA schools for the first time last cycle (2020-21) and didn't receive any interviews. I have ~4,000 hrs PCE as an EMT and as a Hemodialysis Tech. My main issue is poor performance freshman & sophomore year of undergrad. There's an upward trend in my grades, but that obviously wasn't enough. I'm considering attending a record enhancing masters program like the Masters in Biomedical sciences program at Vanderbilt or the Contemporary Human Anatomy MS at EVMS. Would preforming well in one of these programs boost my application enough to make it worth it? Also considering re
  2. What does Stanford mean when they say they accept applications on a "semi-rolling" basis?
  3. Does anyone know if UNC practices rolling admissions or is every application that arrives by September 1st considered the same?
  4. Good to know! Gives me some hope for future waves that I haven’t received a rejection yet!
  5. @philosophymedic I think we have to wait until all the invites go out before they start sending rejections.
  6. @Chapla36 Mine doesn’t even have an application status section anymore, though it used to say that my application was complete. I’ve had various problems with the personalized URL over the last few month so I wouldn’t put too much stock into what it says. If you’re concerned about the admissions committee not having pieces of your application, you’re probably better off giving them a call.
  7. EVMS sent out a personalized URL to each applicant via email that shows the status of your application, but there have been a few glitches with the system. The link should be go.evms.edu/yourfullname
  8. I’ve heard from past years it’s around 4pm, but that hasn’t stopped me from refreshing this page and checking my email every two seconds.
  9. EVMS was the first program I’ve ever applied to and I do plan on applying to more programs in the current 2020-2021 cycle incase I’m not accepted to EVMS. Last 40 Replacement GPA: 3.60 cGPA: 3.22 pre-rec GPA: 3.54 PCE: 2200 hrs as an Advanced EMT and 900 hrs as a hemodialysis technician. Volunteer: 2000 of my EMT hours were volunteer. I’ve also been a medical volunteer at a marathon (16hrs) and my states Special Olympics (12 hrs). Shadowing: 20 hrs with a PA, 6 hrs with a FNP, and 12 hrs with a MD. 3 LORs I’m definitely preparing myself for the possibil
  10. Hey! Thought I'd start a topic for this application cycle. Good luck to everyone applying!
  11. Just received a phone call from EVMS apologizing for the glitch. They said the site is under maintenance. Definitely was nice seeing!
  12. So I just checked my personalized URL and it's saying "Congratulations on your acceptance to the program, Alexandra!". Obviously this is a glitch since I haven't even been invited to interview and those won't be going out until June. Just curious if anyone else has experienced this.
  13. I think it's fantastic that EVMS wants to evaluate applicants on their ethics and judgment to create a more wholistic application process. I just wished it wasn't a timed test so I could convey my ideas clearer. It almost felt like more of a typing test than anything else.
  14. I don't have an answer for you, but I've been wondering the exact same thing! My best guess is that the 100 words or less one should go into more detail and the other one should be summed up in 2 sentences. Hopefully someone else has a better answer.
