Class of 2017 (Summer 2015 Start)

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to reach out to any one and see who else is applying? I have my application 90% completed! Anyone else out there?

I am! Have you looked at the website under "Status Check?" I did and it says they have my documents but it still says "incomplete." I'm nervous that I'm missing something... Does yours say the same thing?

Hi! Glad to hear there is someone else out there! Lol

 

So I submitted mine exactly two weeks ago, but I am still waiting for TWO of my LORs to come through. A little frustrated. It's a very fine line to push people about those. I don't want to be rude, but I NEED them to submit those in! So my status just says "submitted" :/

I emailed my reminders! Gave them a "deadline" to submit it by, and they will wait for the last minute.. I can't find the observation hours document. That's apparently what I was missing. Have you found that?

Wait! I thought the observation hours document isn't due until after acceptance.

@wareagle223 A deadline is a GREAT idea!! I finally got a second LOR in. Just waiting on that last one. I will send them a reminder stating that I have a deadline to meet.

 

And no, I have not found the observation hours document! I haven't even heard of it! But I will definitely need it in order to update my shadowing hours. I have over 4,000 hours of work experience. But only 30 hours of shadowing. UGH. So that's something I definitely need to take care of. @futurepa588 Where did you find out that information?

 

Thanks to you both!!!

This is confusing. I called admissions and they said I had everything. However, I also emailed them. The first email said I'm missing my Observation Hours Document. Then, I asked for the link. They replied that there is no document, and that I needed all of the people I shadowed to email admissions directly to verify my hours. I shadowed/volunteered with some of these people 2 years ago. So awkward to email them!! And I'm not accepted yet. So now I'm very confused and I'll probably just end up calling them again on Monday... Now, I feel like admissions is going to get all of these random emails involving me. WHAT IS GOING ON.

Wow. Sounds very confusing! But I greatly appreciated you letting us know what they are saying. Can you please pass along more information from your call today?? Or whenever. That sounds like a lot of trouble to get EACH person to send in "verification of shadowing". I can't even get in my last LOR!

Sorry to wait so long to respond. After a few days, I logged back in to check, and it said it was under review. So, I'm pretty sure that the individual emails were unnecessary. I still just did what they said and messaged the random people I shadowed just to cover my bases. I think it just takes multiple days to update the application check.

@pdjags, I know right! I was looking at the requirements for the program online & it only gave examples of driver's licenses from those certain states regarding proving citizenship in US. But in the FAQ's section, it says anybody can apply. A lot of conflicting information "/

@DeterminedPA I think that when they talk about proof of residence(ie GA), it pertains to receiving in state tuition vs. out of state! And then proving you have US citizenship. The only school in the South that I have come across that requires you to live in certain states is East Carolina University. So no worries!

 

@Scfan Congrats on that interview!! Check the previous threads for some great tips for the interview. Previous classes tend to post some good insight! Let us know how it goes?!

Just received my email about an interview, scheduled for this Monday. Anyone know of any questions from previous interviews?

 Congrats on the interview! I hope it went well. When was your application complete and ready for review?

I'm still waiting for my application to be reviewed. I submitted my application back in July, but still haven't heard a word. Status still reads as "Ready for Review." Anyone else in the same boat?

QueenEmile, okay thank goodness! I was starting to get worried haha! I've had several friends tell me they didn't hear back until November/December so that's a bit comforting. I'm guessing they didn't get started until around October 15th.
