  1. Go for it! If you've already completed your CASPA and you're a great candidate, I don't see why it wouldn't be worth it. As my grandpa always said, you've got to get dressed and show up to the ball game to see how it turns out ;).
  2. Accepted here as well. Woot woot! Congrats, guys! What campuses are you leaning towards?
  3. Accepted as well from Monday morning's interview! Congrats to everyone. Excited to meet you all!
  4. Hey, mm1995. Please forgive the late response. I haven't been on here in a while! I can't seem to find the link, but I know for a fact it's the same one on this web page towards the bottom. https://paportal.lhup.edu/PA/DesktopDefault.aspx?pid=18&tabid=0 Do you see the ppt link?
  5. Just got my rejection letter a couple of days ago. I thought I was a strong applicant, but apparently not! I can't imagine how fierce the competition must be this cycle. Best of luck to the rest of you, and congrats to those who have been invited :)!
  6. Congrats! Did you apply to Glenside or DE?
  7. Awesome sauce! I'm interviewing on 8/21 too but in the morning. Definitely not looking forward to waking up that early :'(.
  8. Just got a response with an updated link. Let me know if you didn't nm.pa. I'll DM it to you!
  9. Name wasn't included in the email, no. But the top link brings me to a sign in page too. I emailed the contact and let them know we needed credentials to access it. Hopefully they fix it.
  10. Congrats, Bowler Penguin! Just got my interview invite as well! Already rejected from Rutgers PA program, but I was really excited to see this email. Maybe we'll see each other depending on what date we choose. For those curious… Caspa submitted: 5/18 Caspa verified: 5/19 Interview dates: 8/21 & 8/23
  11. There is NO supplement in Arcadia's application to the best of my knowledge. Anyone else going to the info session this Thursday (5/25)???
  12. Hey, guys! I guess it's time to start the waiting game, huh? CASPA submitted 5/18 and Verified 5/19. Let's keep each other in the loop!
  13. That's a great point. I didn't think about it like that before. Welp, looks like I'll be applying early!
  14. Fair enough. I appreciate your insight. I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope for something this time around.
  15. I know having those left isn't ideal. My thinking is the fact I already took Physiology and got an A would help, in addition to the fact that I got A's and A+'s in Chems and Ochems and Genetics, etc. So I would like to think they would assume I can do well in AP 1 and 2. I guess it's kind of a crapshoot whether I'll get in this cycle, but a year makes a big difference to me, and if I can get in somewhere and not have to wait another year, that's my ideal situation.
  16. I don't know why I wrote Drexel. I had it on my list initially, but took it off once I saw it needed 750 hours before application, not matriculation. So Drexel's a no-go for me.
  17. Desales, Penn State, Arcadia, and both Jefferson's require around 500 HCE hours before matriculation. The rest of the schools I'm applying to don't require HCE hours. That's what my list is based on. So here's the plan: take 3 remaining summer classes (I took physiology in college, but didn't take anatomy, so now I have to take AP 1 and AP II), get EMT-B in the fall, and rack up paid patient care hours before matriculation. Any other thoughts now that you've got the full plan?
  18. I didn't realize that. That makes a strong case for applying at the earlier date. Thank you both!
  19. So you think waiting is justified by potentially getting those 15-30 hospital volunteer hours?
  20. That's what I'm leaning towards. Thanks for your input!
  21. Some background on me before I ask my question… Undergrad Ed School: Ursinus College (Outside Philadelphia) Cumulative Undergrad. GPA: 3.88 Major: Neuroscience and Psychology (double major) Age at application time: 26 GRE: 164 V, 162 Q, 5.0 AW Direct Patient Care: NONE Shadowing: 8 hrs - ENT PA 12 hrs - Derm PA 16 hrs - Vascular Surgery PA 8 hrs - Neurology PA 8 hrs - GI PA 8 hrs - Orthopedic PA 8 hrs - FP PA Experiences - Founded and Grew Local Test Prep Company - Published best-selling test prep book - U.S. Dept of State Fulbright Scholar - Summ
  22. Very passionate so far about the PA profession, but would like to shadow to get a better idea of what it entails. Any help would be greatly appreciated! TIA!
