Has anyone been notified if their application has been received/complete? I tried asking today, but just got this email back. 

 

Thank you very much for your interest in the LSUHSC-New Orleans Master of Physician Assistant Studies Program.

 

Please track the status of your application via CASPA. We will send emails once the review process has been completed.

 

Again, thanks for your interest in the LSUHSC- New Orleans Master of Physician Assistant Studies Program.

 

And all CASPA says is verified. Other schools have told me my app is complete.

I didn't email them but I still haven't received confirmation and my CASPA was verified 6/26. I guess they will let us all know at the same time when the review process starts... hopefully! Has anyone else heard anything yet?

I got an email today saying: "Thank you for your interest in the LSUHSC-New Orleans Master of Physician Assistant Studies Program. Your application has been received. The Admissions Committee is in the process of completing the screening stage of the review process. We were gratified to receive over 400 qualified applications for the 30 available seats." I have no idea if I am part of the 400 or not. Did anybody else get this email?

They have started interviewing applicants. The first day they conducted interviews was on 8/22. From what they told me, they are using one day per week to do the interviews. So from 8/22 onward, they should be using one day per week for interviews until they interview 200 applicants. According to their website, they only interview 200 people. I might be wrong on that number but there is a specific number on their website. On the day I went, they had ~8 people scheduled to interview. 

 

Good luck!

Just heard from a 2nd year PA student at LSUHSC-NO:

They have only interviewed 6 people so far, and they are waiting a few weeks to pick back up. (That much she said she knows)

 

She said she thinks they interview in alphabetical order... But she says it's just a theory.

 

Good luck! Hope this helps calm everyone's nerves!

 

PS- did anyone else get the bizarre "We're still reviewing applications" email today?

Has anyone received an email recently about interviews? Here's what I got this morning (had some complications with my university sending my transcript to CASPA a while back):

 

Thank you for your application to the LSU Health Shreveport PA Program. Your application is in committee review. We are currently assigning interview dates for October, November, and December. You will be notified by email if anything is found to be missing from your application. You will be notified by email if you are selected or not for an interview.

 

Again, thank you for applying and good luck.

 

 

 

Sincerely,

 

 

 

LSU Admissions Committee

Mr. Watkins,

This is a board for the New Orleans PA School. I received the email you posted above about a month or 2 ago. Still haven't heard about my own interview.

Had my interview last week. It went pretty well. Has anyone been accepted into their program yet? Do you know when New Orleans will be notifiying applicants of their acceptance?

I interviewed last Thursday. I think it went well. I don't think anything is alphabetical because my last name begins with an A. I was told they would interview through late October, and I would be notified either way in late October to early November.

Yeah I was told the same but I was hoping they would notify us sooner! I've been accepted into another PA program but prefer New Orleans. Ugh.. Not sure what to do. Thanks for the response! Good luck!

Best of luck to everyone who got interviews! If y'all feel comfortable, could you update us on your acceptance? We'd love to hear your stats and/or any advice for those of us who need to apply again next year!

 

Congratulations, y'all! : )

Hello! Hope I can help..

 

I interviewed in late August and was informed of my acceptance about a month later (though they did tell me I wouldn't hear until November too). I called this week to get some info about when classes start (January 7th and orientation is the 5th) and Ms. Johnnie said they were still interviewing. So don't give up hope!

 

As for my stats:

I'm a Louisiana resident. Graduated from LSU. For HCE, I worked as a medical assistant for two years after graduation (also had some other shadowing). 3.79 overall GPA and I think a 3.6 science. GRE was 157 verbal 157 math and 3.5 writing.

Has anyone been/does anyone know if anyone has been flat out rejected yet? Or do you think that LSUHSC waits until all interviews have been conducted before sending out rejection letters?

 

Thanks!

Abhpa, thanks so much! Congratulations to you.

 

Louisianapa, I haven't heard anything about an interview or a rejection. I guess they wait to make sure they have all their spots filled before rejecting people.

Hi!

 

I got an email to go interview last week and the interview is scheduled exactly 1 week later. They say you have 48 hours to reply to email. 

 

I won't copy and paste the entire email, but it did say that "interviews will be scheduled in 20 minute increments and will include members of the Admissions Committee". I'm not sure if they mean that you will interview for 20 minutes with each interviewer or if your entire interview will last 20 minutes then they will move onto the next person. Does anyone have any clarification on this?
