    I’m definitely leaning that way. I just have to make sure things are set up with a contract I have. April 1st will be the soonest.

    I am in the same boat. I got into another great school, however, financially speaking I would love to attend UNT. I wonder if we will hear soon because I have to make arrangements quite soon 😕 

    I was accepted into my top choice. April I plan to give up my seat at UNT. I hope one of y’all get it!

    I'm in a similar position with the PAEP interview in February. I also received the email for the alternate list the next day. I inquired if acceptance into the PAEP would be a direct pipeline into the class of 2024 (assuming successful completion of the two year didactic period). They confirmed yes (it would not require a reapplication).

    I also asked if accepted into the PAEP would that remove me from the alternate list for the traditional MPAS, class of 2023, cohort admission. They confirmed it would not remove me from the alternate list. So the way I see it, the PAEP would be a good alternative to completely reapplying next year. Unless you're already accepted elsewhere of course. Good luck everyone!   

    I agree if a person wasn’t accepted anywhere else it would be a good idea to accept the interview. It’s better than not being accepted anywhere else. Good luck to you. I’m sure my spot will open up a interview spot for someone !

    Hi guys! I found this blog post from The Humerus PA that interviews a PA student currently at UTRGV. It looks like she did the PAEP program and got accepted to the UTRGV PA School. She gives a bit more info about it in Question 4. Hope this helps! 



    I got more insight from a current student. It sounds like the program offers less courses and then they interview the student to join the regular PA program. It almost sounds like a trial. I’m going to accept another program I was accepted into.

    I received a waitlist email on 1/2021 but I have not heard back since. @Obiwankenobiyou also receive a waitlist invite and then the invitation for PAEP? I wish they would just send the final acceptance/rejection so I can just relax and stop checking every 5 minutes for a possible email <.>

    I haven’t heard back from the regular program. No waitlist or rejection so far, but they said we should know our status by the end of this month.

    I’d go through the full program that accepted me. Forget this slow paced program. Like a band aid I’d want to complete ASAP and start paying off loans and life expenses. The world around us isn’t getting cheaper or less stressful. Of course, only if you can handle it. The sooner you’re out of school the sooner you can go out and enrich lives (yours included)!

    I prefer the regular paced program as well. I don’t see any additional benefits to the PAEP, but it was pretty vague in the email. I hear very good things about another program I was accepted to. I just would like to consider the valley since it’s closer to home. I don’t plan on taking out any loans. I’ve worked full time to avoid them. An additional year would add additional expenses that are not necessary unless it was a doctorate program. They said attending this interview would not decrease my chances for the regular program for a waitlist or acceptance.

    When did 

    Is there any other benefit from the extended program other than it having a smaller class/slower pace? I don’t want to wait to become a PA and spend more time away from family. Unless there was more of an incentive to complete the longer program like getting a doctorate or more clinical sites.

     I was accepted to other schools, but the valley is closer to home. I hope I hear back about the regular program or find out more about this extended program.

    yes, sounds that way.

    I think they're waiting to hear back from the ones that have been accepted and then send out waitlists if needed.. But definitely if you haven't interviewed they will not be extending invitations to interview anymore. I interviewed and haven't heard back so I'm taking it as a rejection based on the way the email was worded. 


    I emailed and asked. I’ll let y’all  know if there is a response.

    Are they just not going to say if you’ve been waitlisted? I interviewed in early/ mid November and haven’t heard anything from them? 

    From this forum it looks like no one has heard back. I interviewed early November, and I felt like the interview went well.
    I think they’re going to keep interviewing and then pick. 100 students is a lot and most schools interview 3-4x as much seats they have to offer. 

    From my email prior to my interview they said they will interview until the end of December, but idk if that’s changed.  Who knows. Just gotta be patient for now

    Please do not think that you did not get accepted because you are foreign, that is most definitely not the case.Two of my friends from my Masters program got accepted here and both of them were foreign. Did you interview?

    I got rejected and I have a 3.9/4.0 gpa with 16,000 pce, and other hours for volunteering/shadowing. I’m actually okay with this because I’ve had 8 interviews and 5 acceptances so far. I don’t think it’s because you’re a foreigner. Maybe they had a specific type of applicant they wanted.

    I haven't so far... been checking regularly since my 11/6 interview.  I asked during mine and they said they are doing rolling admissions but that they started interviewing late, they may interview later into next year, and that everything is expected to take longer this year since they still don't know if classes will be attended online or in person come the fall.  

    I hope we hear back before the end of the year. Vaccinations will be given before the start of 2021 classes for the community and by December for healthcare workers . I’m hoping everything is safe by the time we start classes. I want to be in person.
