Hi. How long after you sent in your supplemental did you get the 3 mystar emails? I sent in my supplemental more than a week ago and haven't gotten anything yet. Is it an automated system? Thanks!

I submitted my supplemental in early June, and then received my mystar emails like 5 days later. I'm not sure if it's an automated system though. Hope this helps!

Hey I have an interview OCT 9, any pointers from those that have already gone through UTMB interview process


Just be yourself! The interview was much more laid back than what I was expecting.. but it is better to be sharp than go in thinking you're going to 'wing it'! The staff was very friendly, and all of the other applicants were also very fun and inviting. Obviously, I don't know if the applicants you interview with are going to be the same, but overall the atmosphere was peaceful and encouraging! Be ready for situational questions! Not everyone will get asked them, but I got asked two from one faculty myself. Be professional, but show them you are passionate about being a PA and a caring, empathetic person! Research UTMB! They want to know that you know about their school and its history! They are super proud of it, and they want to accept students who are proud of it, too. Just a hint: Find the student handbook online and study the history of the school! They didn't necessarily ask me any questions about the school's history, but when I brought it up, I could tell they were very impressed and excited that I spent so much time learning about them!

You will do great! Good luck, and I hope to hear about some more acceptances! We will be classmates! :)

I interviewed last Friday and got my acceptance email Monday! Super excited!


Congratulations bbailey, that's awesome! Would you mind sharing your stats?


I applied in mid August and my application went into review a few days ago. The wait is killing me!

Congratulations to those who have been accepted! 


Does anyone know the timeframe between receiving the 'mystar' emails and the 'application in PA department for review' email?  I submitted everything July 30th, then received the 'mystar' emails the next day, but it's almost been 2 months and it sounds like the PA department doesn't even have it since I have not received any other communication.  Anyone else experience this?

      Hi PAs as Pre-PAs: I am fortunate enough to say that I have a choice of PA programs to choose from- Emory and Duke. I have visited both schools during the interview, and both are impressive. I’ll be moving with my husband, who will need to find a job wherever we end up, and it seems like Atlanta may have more opportunities for jobs in his field (landscape architecture). I’m thrilled but a bit stumped as to which to choose. I’d sincerely appreciate some insight from those that are familiar with the programs. What would be on your pro and con list? Thank you!

      Hello future classmates!  Just thought I’d get this going so we can get familiar and bounce ideas off each other.

      So my graduation date is slowly approaching, and I have been looking into becoming a PA for the past year or so and I have decided I want to go for it. My question is not about classes or GPA but just about the timeline in general about how and when to apply. 
      I am graduating Fall 2018, so my main question is, should I wait to apply until I have actually physically graduated and apply for the 2019 cycle? Or can I begin applying next year in 2018 since I only have one semester left? I remember in high school, we can start applying for universities during our last year of high school, so I am wondering if it works the same way for this? I have searched everywhere, and all I get is general deadlines, nothing as specific as my question. 
      ANYTHING HELPS! Thanks!

      Hi all,
      I'm currently in the interview process, and I'm somewhat confused about how to manage acceptances (should they come...). My first interview is in a week, the next one is in 2 weeks, and a top choice program, which I haven't heard back from yet, doesn't start interviews until late-October. (Still waiting to hear from a few more programs, too.)
      So, do prospective PA students in this position just make deposits as necessary to hold places in programs they're interested in as acceptances come in, if they're still waiting to hear back from their first or second choices? Is it really disrespectful to accept an offer from a program, make the deposit, and then change your mind, or is this just an expected part of the process? If I'm offered an October interview for that top choice program, I could theoretically end up paying deposits to 3 separate programs, which seems absurd... Granted, the chances I'd actually get 3 acceptances are probably low, but even 2 would be tricky.
      What am I missing? 
      Thank you :)
