  1. Not really a way to know unfortunately. It changes year to year. I’ve looked at past years and it seems to fluctuate quite a bit. I’m in the same boat.
  2. I’m in the same boat. Not sure how many they usually put on the list though. From reading other years of this forum it sounds like quite a few get taken off the alternate list. Keeping my hopes high
  3. If it makes you both feel any better....I interviewed 9/20 and have been playing the waiting game since lol. I’ve gotten an email about being rolled over and another email asking if I was still interested in continuing my application. But no answer. Driving me crazy!! Good luck to everyone still waiting for an answer
  4. I think they’re probably looking for people who have interviewed at other schools and taken spots elsewhere..and also updating people.
  5. I received the same email. I was rolled over from the 9/20 interview. The waiting game continues.
  6. I received the same email after interviewing on 9/20. I’m taking no news as good news at the moment. They said at our interview that most good candidates get rolled over. Quite a few people I interviewed with already got rejection letters. Keep your hopes high! Still lots of time before all decisions are made. Good luck and hopefully we will be meeting next fall
  7. It doesn’t mean you can’t interview. Your application just isn’t considered complete until the course is finished and your final grade is submitted. Deadline to submit final grades is December 31st I believe. After the course grade is submitted to pa_info@wmich.edu you will be eligible for an interview. Just remember that the deadline for the application to be turned in is December 1st. So you must have your CASPA and supplemental application turned in and paid for by that date as well. I hope this helped and good luck!!
  8. Congrats!! So exciting What is your experience and GPA if you don’t mind sharing? Did you get an email after your interview saying they were rolling your application into the next set of interviewees?
  9. I received an email stating ‘although we are not offering you a seat at this time we will be rolling your application into the next set of interviews’. Some of the other people that interviewed on the same day as me got rejection letters already also. When did you interview? I was on 9/20.
  10. You still have plenty of time. The deadline isn’t until December 1st I believe.
  11. Huge congrats! I was interviewed that day as well. My application is getting rolled into the next set of interviews. What was your GPA and experience if you don’t mind me asking?
  12. Nothing yet. I think I recall the program director saying they were going to start comparing the first two groups of interviewees today. Fingers crossed we hear something soon!!
  13. Hey! Congrats on your invite! So exciting. I look forward to meeting you and everyone else that day. As far as preparing goes...I bought a book called 'Physician Assistant Interview Guide' by Savanah Perry of The PA Platform. The book has a ton of good info and goes over different interview styles and possible questions and how to answer them. It was a huge help. I also scheduled myself a mock interview on www.thepaplatform.com They are all practicing PA's and have experience working with admission boards. Hope this helps!
  14. I just mentioned that I was getting married the same day. Originally I was invited to interview on 9/13 but they asked me if I would switch to another day because of my wedding being the same day. I’m sure if you just email them they will be understanding. Good luck!! And congrats as well on your invitation
  15. Yes. I received an email from WMU last week for an invitation on the 13th but that’s the day of my wedding. They switched me to 9/20.
  16. I appreciate your response! I tried to not make my personal statement too boastful. I kept it fairly short (5 paragraphs) and was honest in what I said. Didn’t tell an extravagant story about why I wanted to be a PA. Maybe I need to be a little more creative next time. But I do lack any volunteer hours. What did you do for volunteering if you don’t mind me asking and how many hours did you have?
  17. Rejection letter today as well. Not sure what else to do. Literally have over 13,000 hours of experience as a respiratory therapist and my grades are well above the minimum 3.0. Better luck next year I guess.
  18. Hey Sara. Did you have all your prereqs done before you got interviewed? They told me my application wasn’t considered complete until I turned in my final grades for my last 2 prereqs.
  19. Congrats Allison! What was your clinical experience and gpa if you don’t mind me asking?
  20. Hello everyone! Just stopping in to say hi. I’m just waiting for grades to be posted so my application can be considered complete. Just finished biochem and micro. I see they are admitting some people already. Looks like there’s been a good mix of what people have for experience. I’ve been a respiratory therapist since 2011 so I have a ton of experience but my GPA is mediocre. I think 3.5 overall. Good luck to everyone still waiting to interview. I look forward to hopefully meeting some of you in the near future!
