  4. I believe they said they will inform you ~ 2 weeks from interview date (correct me if I'm wrong). Everyone should receive a snail mail with a decision (Accepted, Waitlist, Rejection). They also additionally give you a call if you are accepted from my experience. Although, I have heard of people receiving acceptances in the mail without a phone call. As cliche as it sounds, be yourself. Putting up a front usually leads to generic answers spurred by trying to tell adcoms what they want to hear. Review your own application and know it like the back of your hand. Practice, practice, practice (get others to help with mock interviews) till you feel comfortable enough to be able to spit out thoughtful and honest answers at a moments notice. Calming your nerves for such a big occasion is probably the hardest thing, and practice is usually the best remedy.

  6. Some advice on housing: 1) Join the Facebook group! Lot of helpful people and info there. 2) http://www.tustudentlife.com/housing/rentals/ 3) http://studentservices.tu.edu/other/housing.html (Irene can email you a list of rental property management in the area. She is very helpful and friendly.) 4) And as mentioned above, you can always also try the regular web resources like Craigslist and apartment websites. I highly recommend going up to see the places you are interested in BEFORE signing any leases or making agreements. I actually reserved a week to check a few places out recently and found that I liked some that I didn't have too high on my list and vice versa.

  8. I believe this is the correct link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/568418413172076/ Congratulations and look forward to seeing you when classes start! :)
  9. Edited. I found an already made FB page for class 2016 and joined that one. :;-):
  10. Basically echo'ing what previous people have said. PA schools, particularly in California, are extremely competitive. 2.7 GPA is below the average and perhaps you should consider maybe re-taking some coursework to try to bring this up. However, I will say that Touro seems good at looking at the applicant as a whole (not just GPA alone). Don't give up and it may still be worth applying even with your current stats. Going through the application process is always fruitful in my opinion if you put in the effort to make it so. You get an idea of where you are at and might find places where you can improve your application for the next cycle.
  11. I was also going to say, you have some pretty good stats there. Keep positive and I am sure you will get in. For other discouraged people out there... If you love the field and know this is what you want, don't give up and keep working hard improving your app each year. My GPA was a significant amount lower than the original poster, but I kept at it year after year. Four applications cycles later, eventually got in. Hard work will eventually yield its fruits.
