    Hello everyone, I was recently notified that I was waitlisted for the PA program. I was wondering if you can find out where you are ranked on the waitlist, and do a lot of the people on the waitlist receive an opportunity to have a seat in the program? 

    There’s no ranking - I’m a transfer notified last month of the waitlist too, I called to ask the same. I’m assuming you’re a freshman? Just depends on how many people from both groups ever give up or decline their seat, and then D’Youville reaches out!

    Got my acceptance email last night!!!!. They said to expect a packet In the mail. Deposits were not due yet!! They told me I have 12 days from my acceptance email. Deposit is $750

    I just heard that regarding initial offers, so that’s great news - congrats!!! Are you going to accept?

    Hi everyone! I got accepted to D'Youville's 4.5 yr program a while ago and they gave me two weeks to put a $750 deposit down. Considering I only had two weeks to decide, the school is all the way in NY, I'm unable to do a school tour, and I have been accepted to other direct-entry programs, I decided to decline my acceptance. Good luck to everyone! 

    Congratulations on multiple acceptances!!! You did it! Good luck 🙂

    Hey guys. Im bored at work (EMT-B with AMR in buffalo from 1730-530) and didn't feel like doing any school work so I decided to jump on this page to see how everyone was faring.

    I interviewed on the 4th and was accepted on the 9th, via email. I received a physical mail correspondence yesterday, but it didn't list any of the courses that they would accept.

    Anyone else get the packet yet?'

    To anyone who hasn't received notice yet: Don't lose hope! They just finished interviews on the 14th and they have over (what i would estimate as) 120 competitive applications to compare. You may very well have a seat. There might be several students who they have ranked very similarly that they want to spend serious time analyzing so they can confidently say they chose the right student.  As someone who ruminates I realize how difficult that is to do, but try to just sit tight and stay positive! 

    I was waitlisted at another local school and it was agonizing waiting for them to give me a decision. 

    Im pulling for you all and hope to see EVERYONE next fall. 

    Just going back through the thread now killing time.. that was such a fast acceptance (makes sense given your position, congrats!!) What was included in the email they they sent prior to the letter arriving? Was it generic or specific to what the timeline would look like for new students going forward?

    Does anyone know if we're for sure getting our decision letter through the mail or can it also be through email as well? because I have been checking my emails like crazy every hour!

    From prior threads and intro to the interview conversation it sounds like mail! Between this forum, my email and mailman I’m exhausted 😂

    The group interview shook me a little, and I felt like I couldn't share as much as I would have liked because I was nervous about the other applicants. I just didn't feel great about it after hearing the others speak about their qualifications either. You should sign up for informed delivery with the post office. My mail goes missing or is misdelivered a lot, and it sends you a preview of your mail in the morning before the drivers get it. 

    I also felt like the format took some about-me time away, so I just tried to stay calm & natural. I keep reminding myself they have my essay, and she brought up some things from my app so she definitely knew what I would’ve wanted to reiterate anyway. I know prior applicants got to do a writing piece & had that one on one time - so just remember they knew this wasn’t the norm for everyone. I used to have the informed delivery! Good call

    For those who have interviewed already, did they tell you we would hear in 10-14 days? I just wanted to make sure I heard that correctly. I was in the first group, and 14 days from the interview date still leaves one more interview session to be completed. 

    I also heard that in the intro - caught me SO off guard (in a good way!). Tyra prepared us for a January-ish decision. I interviewed on the 4th - from prior threads it’ll be snail mail!

  8. Update: I’m in!! Tyra emailed a “Dear Alicynn,

    It goes on to help register you if you haven’t already and select a date, OMG I’m SO EXCITED!! Good luck to everyone here!!!!

    Received a physical mail on 10/14 dated 10/07 and it was a rejection letter.  Just wanted to let everyone know, not sure about interviews but they sure are sending out rejection letters right now. Good luck to everyone! 

    Sorry to hear - keep at it!! Was your mydyc page updated at all?

  10. Hey guys! Long time lurker of every thread available on google when it comes to pursuing PA as a second career. 

    I got hired by the lizard selling insurance at 19, and my 5 year anniversary is coming up this October. They offer tuition reimbursement, so I’ve been going to school (they pay for your business degree) since I became eligible at 6 months and graduated with my associates last spring with a 3.96 GPA. (Only A missed was Accounting II when my father passed, I physically couldn’t make an exam). I was lucky to have them offer me a 2 yr bachelor program to fast track the rest of my degree so I’ll be done (AND fully vested in my 401k - important to me, I’ve contributed a lot) by the time I’m 26. 

    I have always wanted to work in medicine, having been around it my whole life and I wasn’t in a position to jump into a 5 year program right out of high school. 

    I have taken Anatomy I with lab, psychology, sociology, statistics and calculus thus far with an A, I made sure my electives for this degree began to work for me in the future. 

    I want to continue knocking out pre reqs and leave my job to pursue a 33 month program here in New York as soon as I can after I graduate. Projected cost is $100,000. I will have enough saved to float mortgage, car, etc. and am lucky enough to have a loving SO to support my love & split expenses with (will definitely downsize - May sell the house if needed) 

    The advice I’d like is for those of you who have been in a similar scenario, how did you succeed? What do you recommend? 

    Whats the best way to get HCE hours? Should I reach out to hospital? Hospice? Any advice helps. 

    I currently work M-F 7:30-3:30, business program is 6-10 PM on Thursday nights and I play softball tues/wed. Should I enroll back at my CC for the leftover prereqs? Move onto a university? Can I take just single classes? 


    As you guys guys can see I’m very green, but making spreadsheets and determined to figure all of this out. Thank you!!
