Hi Everyone,

I applied to this program and my application is currently under review. I was speaking to the Director of Admissions about my biochemistry class and hopefully it will count as a prerequisite course. In any case, I wanted to start a thread for this year's applicants so we can share our journey together. My name is Elaine and this is the first time I've applied to the program. I'm currently living in Portland, Oregon working as a dialysis technician & preceptor. I also have 4 years experience working in big pharma, producing a drug for colorectal cancer (protein purification side).

I have applied and recieved two e-mails, the first saying that they got my application and the second saying that they are reviewing it. Someone I know who applied last year submitted her application in laste August (the due date is Sept. 1) and got a message back that the class was already full. This makes me think that they will probably be getting the interview cycle started pretty shortly, if they want to fill the seats in the next several weeks.

Hi!

 

Elaine - What a great idea! :-)

 

My name is Jessica, and this is also the first time that I have applied to PA school. I live in Maryland, and I am working as a GNA. I initially received the first email at the beginning of July stating that they received my application and that it is under review. Later that same day, I received an email saying that I was chosen for an interview. I had to complete supplemental applications for both Towson and CCBC, and then they called me yesterday to set up the date and time for the interview! Anyone else interviewing this month?? Good luck to everyone! This is very exciting!

Hi Everyone!

 

My name is Jennifer and this is my first time applying to PA school as well. I am actually from Missouri. I was very surprised to hear from this school since they do not accept a lot of out of state applicants. My emails came the same way as Jessica's! I also completed to applications but have not received my interview schedule call yet. Jessica, what day is your interview? I am trying to make arrangements since I am so far out of state so hopefully I hear tomorrow! I hope to see you there!

I have been invited for an interview, but they have not yet called with a date and time. It has been almost 3 weeks, but I'll remain patient...

PA hopeful - I received the interview email sometime in the first week of July. Good luck with yours, from what I understand there will be multiple interview days.

 

Elaine Marie - Congratulations, you must be so happy! Are you going to go to the school that you got accepted to, or are you waiting to hear from another before deciding?

Jessica- Thanks for that info, I am still waiting and haven't heard anything which I feel like it's a good thing. Maybe as you said they are getting the round of interviews done to make room for the next. I wish you the best of luck and be yourself! Let us know how it goes.

PAhopeful13- I have received an invitation for interview I am just waiting for the call to schedule it. I am going to send an email tomorrow to get an update because that is what the document says to do if you have not heard from them after completing the supplemental and three weeks have passed.

They email you a link to a page with 4 steps. All of the steps are applying to other schools involved with the program and transcript requests. After you complete the applications and they have received your transcripts, you complete the last step which is a form stating you completed the prior steps. The last form tells you to wait up to three weeks for a phone call. This is only sent if you are invited for an interview. Hope this helps! I still haven't received the call so I sent off an email to find out if there was a problem and she never received my last form. I'll let you know when I hear something!

For those of you who haven't received your call yet, I e-mailed Shirley since it had almost been a month for me. She said I had been cleared for an interview, but they don't have another date picked out yet to hold the interview.

rcreek: Congrats. Oh great thanks! Did you receive the supplemental application already? It will be a month for me on Friday, as I am still waiting on the interview e-mail. Do they pick out dates for us or we call and arrange a date?

Thanks for the update rcreek! They haven't replied to any of my emails and it has been a month for me too since I received my interview invitation and submitted the supplemental forms. :/
