  1. What does Stanford mean when they say they accept applications on a "semi-rolling" basis?
  2. Does anyone know if UNC practices rolling admissions or is every application that arrives by September 1st considered the same?
  3. Good to know! Gives me some hope for future waves that I haven’t received a rejection yet!
  4. @philosophymedic I think we have to wait until all the invites go out before they start sending rejections.
  5. @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.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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 possibility that I won’t get accepted this cycle. I’ve been considering applying to EVMS’s MS in contemporary human anatomy program if that’s the case, but not sure if I should retake Gen Chem I (C+) and Organic Chemistry I (B-) instead. I did fulfill the Gen Chem prerequisite requirement to apply through my Gen Chem II course.
  9. Hey! Thought I'd start a topic for this application cycle. Good luck to everyone applying!
  10. Just received a phone call from EVMS apologizing for the glitch. They said the site is under maintenance. Definitely was nice seeing!
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. I’ve recently been offered a position as a dialysis tech in an outpatient center. I shadowed the other day and the staff seamed friendly. My main duties would be weighing patients, cannulating them and setting up the machines, drawing labs, and monitoring their vitals throughout treatment. This all would be under the supervisions of an RN. I would work 8 and 10 hour shifts. I was hoping someone who has worked as a dialysis tech or knows someone who has could give me feedback about their experiences. I do already have 2 years experience volunteering as an EMT-A on a fairly busy service and plan on continuing to do so. I have also been invited to interview for a medical assistant position at an urgent care, but the interview is after the deadline to decide if I’m going to accept the dialysis position. The pros I see in working as a dialysis tech: Getting to know my patients and their cases. Experience in the chronic disease side of medicine. Cons: It’s could be repetitive work and I would really only learn about kidney disease.
