  1. My application was verified the week after yours and I haven't heard a thing. Not even an email from them saying it was recieved
  2. Yeah, I just called as well. It was pretty much an "accident" sent out to ~200 students or so. I ended up activating my TTU eRaider username but he said thats fine. My account is just activated and I won't have to do it later. I'm wondering if its a good sign or just random that some people received it... but yeah pretty much disregard the entire thing
  3. Yep. I'm having the exact same problem. I just emailed itsolutions@ttuhsc.edu asking for help because my information is all sorts of...messed up. Message me!
  4. That kind of makes me angry lol. We should be the ones requiring a background check considering they're under probation!
  5. If a program is accredited, whether that be continuing, probation etc., by the time you matriculate, they are required to graduate those students with eligibility to sit for the PANCE. So if you get it, and they lose accreditation year 2, you can still sit for the PANCE. The only risk is just attending a lower level program and not getting the best education!
  6. Did you ever get an under review/received email? I was verified 7/18 and havent gotten an email since. Looks like it takes a long time but i know they give priority to those who have turned everything in before aug. 1... which i did but im not sure if i really fall in that category yet
  7. I'm moving home (just graduated college) so I had to quit my job as an MA. I'm currently searching for another job so I don't have any "projected" HOPC hours on my CASPA application, or what I plan on doing. Do y'all think that'll hurt my chances; like would a program assume I'm not doing anything before matriculation? Or would it be more along the lines of them reviewing my initial app, inviting me to an interview (fingers crossed) and then finding out what my plans are? Obviously I will update CASPA when I secure a job but I'm considering emailing programs reassuring I'll definitely have one... Just don't want that to hurt my chances right now. Pls lmk y'all's thoughts!
  8. I haven't gotten any information on a portal. Last email basically said all my scores/fees/docs have been received and my app is under review. Interviews will be extended via email & those that don't receive interviews will know by Dec 31st. So I assume an online portal is either after an interview or not used anymore. Also, I emailed the admissions office after submitting CASPA, GRE, supp fee, etc. and they said no further info was needed from me at the time!

  10. Hmm it seem like the program doesn't do a good job handling its applicants...? Can someone explain to me why the start date says 2019 on CASPA but deadline is Jan 2020??
  11. I'm planning on submitting my application by next Friday, but someone PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong... Official transcripts sent 7/8/19, take about 3 days to arrive in mail, CASPA requires an additional 7 to be posted to application. So by 7/19, if program materials, LORs, payments, transcripts, etc. are submitted, I should be in line for verification, right?
  12. I'm willing! I've talked to some admissions directors about what they're looking for and could give some pointers. I'm also very good with wording and grammar so I could definitely help out on that end too :)
  13. So my brother in law is a cardiothoracic surgeon (DO) and I have about 50 shadowing hours with just him alone on my CASPA application. I know LORs aren't supposed to be from immediate family members, but what is the deal with a brother-in-law? He is definitely someone who can attest for my skills, my character and my passion for healthcare-- not because he's married to my sister and we hang out all the time... actually, the most time I ever spend with him WAS shadowing him for a week. I'm pretty sure I can get the doctor I work under to write me a letter, so I don't NEED his, but I think it would be a good addition to my planned three. Would asking him to submit one hurt more than help? Obviously, he is going to say he's my brother-in-law. But if this letter is #4, I heard some programs only read up to three. And if his is one of those three and they are like "??? hes family"... that'd be bad? IDK Any opinions/help is appreciated!!
