Hello!

 

 I have applied to UAMS this year.  I was wondering how long it takes for them to get back to you about inviting you to an interview.  I applied to Christian Brothers, in Memphis, and they offered me an interview within a couple of days.  Does anyone know how long it takes and what the interview is like?  Of course, I'm assuming I get one.

 

Thanks so much!

Hello, I recently applied and received an email saying they have received my application and is in the process of reviewing it. Nothing else yet.

I have a friend that is in the inaugural class. She told me that she applied late and didn't have an interview until January/ February. Obviously it will be different for us applying for the third class/application cycle but I'm assuming it maybe awhile before we hear anything.

Please let me know if you heard anything!

 

Is there anyone going to the informational session next week?

i applied to UAMS last year. They are extremely slow. I did not even know until I got the interview if they had gotten all of my application stuff. The interview is very intense just a forewarning.

They usually only do 1 - 2 interview sessions a month with 8-10 in each interview group starting in August and doing the last one in January. I applied last year in October and received an invitation in December for the January interview. It most likely depends on the information you applied with and how it compares to all the other applicants. So the time can greatly vary.  I know in my class, there were a few who interviewed before I even applied and heard they were accepted long after I had been. Luckily, I only had to wait 3 days after my interview to get the acceptance call whereas some of my classmates waited months.

They told us at our interview that could be anywhere from the week after to December that we would find out. I think they're doing about two interviews per month through the end of January.

Has anyone else on this thread been accepted or had an interview or know someone who has?  All the Arkansas threads are like pulling teeth to get people to answer ha

I had an interview back in November and I still have not heard anything from UAMS. I called in January and Linda said the admissions committee was meeting and I would know something by Mid-January. After Mid-January passed, I called again and this time she told me I would for sure hear something at the end of the week around Feb. 6th. Now, it is another week later and still nothing. I am really starting to lose hope that there would be any spots left by now.

They aren't very good at quick communication.  Congrats on the interview.  I applied in June and literally haven't heard a word since that day.  It's safe to say I'm out, but I'm not sure why I can't be informed of that.

      Hey all!
      With COVID-19 being ever so present during this application cycle, it seems a lot of schools are holding interviews via Zoom or some other virtual format. Does anyone have any tips/advice for interviewing virtually? Pros and cons?
      Just trying to prepare myself for this new normal. Thanks in advance!

      Hi all, can someone please tell me my chances of being invited to an interview or give me suggestions as to what I should do to improve my application? I would really appreciate any input. I’m applying next cycle (2021-2022) thank you in advance!
      Btw I calculated it the way caspa would using ThePAPlatform gpa calculator.

      ~1400 hrs as a CNA
      ~200 hrs as a behavior therapist (it was cut short due to COVID and I have to move back home hours away)
      I just got offered a job at the front desk at the chiropractic office I’m getting treated at (I recently got in a car accident and couldn’t get my old job back as a CNA) but this would count as HCE! I could potentially do this from May until late Sept and work ~24hrs/week.

      - Vice President of my pre-pa club, and was an intern for this club before getting accepted to this position. 

      - I also plan to rack up more hours once I move back to my university 
      Any feedback is appreciated, thank you!

      Hi all,
      Summary:
      Has anyone had success reapplying to schools after a mediocre interview? Does the interview rejection hurt my reapplication more than if they'd never interviewed me?
      Details:
      I was granted an interview at a couple programs this cycle and got waitlisted at one, rejected from the other. I love the program I was rejected from and - pending a miracle on that waitlist - I was thinking of reapplying next cycle.
      I wouldn't say I botched the interview; it just wasn't great overall, and I definitely would take a mulligan on one of the questions. But with my lower academic measurables I think I needed to do exceptionally well to get over the top. 
      I'm taking more classes, shadowing more, writing a new personal essay, etc. And working on my interview skills. I do plan on asking the program for specific feedback but haven't done so yet (I just have their generic, "congrats on getting an interview, but try again" rejection email for the moment).
      I'd be extremely grateful to any admissions professionals or faculty willing to weigh in (if any see this).
      Thanks in advance!

      Hi all!
      I just received an email that I was being extended an interview that was about 3 weeks out from the current date.
      I responded around 4 hours after I received the email to accept the interview, but I received an email a couple hours later that they were going to have to reschedule and that “they would email me when another date opens up”. 
      Has this happened to anyone else??
      Should I be worried? Or do they send out more interview invites than spots that they have open for the day because they know that some people may decline? 
      Thanks!
