  1. I have a question for you all. How many of you are veterans? It seems that UT has a strong strong preference for veterans. I am not a veteran so I am wondering if it is even worth applying again next year to UT because I am not a veteran and didn’t even get an interview invite. I was strong in 7 preferences but did not have the military experience. Also, for all of you that are veterans, thank you for your service.
  2. So I want to congratulate all of you that got accepted and all of you that did not and all of you that applied and didn’t get an interview invite. You are all amazing! Each school looks for different things in their interview invites. I want all of you who did not even get an interview to know about a person named Tom Brady. Tom Brady was selected with pick number 199, a compensatory pick, in the 7th round of the 2000 NFL draft. He wasn’t supposed to do anything or amount to anything. He just won the super bowl for the 7th time and for a team that was terrible at the beginning of th
  3. I hope you all are doing well! For those of you who landed an interview I say way to go! For those waitlisted for an interview I hope you get that great email we all were so frantically checking for. And for those of you rejected (like me) please know that you are awesome too. I have realized this is not an easy thing to do. One of my mentors who is an orthopedic attending physician at the level one trauma where I work told me it is now harder to get into PA school than medical school. Also, UT is an incredibly hard school to even land an interview. Be proud of yourselves because I certainly a
  4. This is a really great forum. I am so happy to have found you all. Quick question for ya. Do you think it would be okay for me to schedule a meeting with an admissions counselor to ask about my application and maybe what I should do to make it better? In my rejection email it said they would not talk about it over the phone or by email but they said nothing about meeting with them. I wouldn’t call or request it right away as I know they are very busy with interviews. What do you all think? Thank you!
  5. So I was rejected this cycle. This is my first cycle. Can some of you tell me how many times you applied and how successful you were? Is it common to miss on the first go round? What kind of things should I do to better my application? Also, am I able to copy things from last years CASPA application to my new one this year? It took me forever to complete my application and would love to copy my experiences and add things that I will be doing. Is it ok to copy the description of work experiences? Is it ok to copy the same COVID statement?
  6. Hello! I applied this year for the first time and was rejected for an interview. Is there some advice you all can give me on how to improve my application for next cycle? Is it ok to copy things from my first application? Can I just copy my experiences since they are the same and just add new ones as I do them? Any advice would be great.
  7. I think it is very very very competitive. They also prefer veterans and other specific applicants.
  8. I have a question. Do you all think that if someone was rejected that they didn’t even meet the minimum qualifications ??
  9. I have never heard of being waitlisted for an interview. There must have been a ton of applicants.
  10. Why don’t you think your application was “looked through”?
  11. I think those who did not get an invite (including me) will know something tomorrow. I know this is such a nerve racking process. I had no idea the application process would be so incredibly intense. It took me months of going over and over the application to get it as close to perfect as I could. I had other eyes looking at it to check for mistakes. Whatever the outcome, I know you all have worked so hard and I wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
