Just been accepted!!

Don't get so worried about stats! I see so many posts like this on the forum.  Duke especially looks at the applicant as a WHOLE.  Stats mean nothing if your personal statement/recommendations were re

Finally am under review... !!

Gah! Accidentally hit submit on my phone. What I meant to say was, I really want to email and ask if I'm still under consideration, but I'm holding off. They really are pretty clear about don't contact us. Understandable considering they've received 2000+ applications.

I know its tough to hold out on waiting, but they are reviewing 2500+ applications. The way I look at it is, you haven't been rejected so there is still a chance. From previous years people were getting interview invites until December so I would wait until after the deadline for any further questions about you application.

 

Best of Luck !

Anywhere else I'd say go for it...Duke is pretty clear that they don't want to hear from people until Jan 2nd.

Its a fine line. I emailed Wendy with transcript updates because CASPA wasn't allowing me to update them for whatever reason.  You don't want to bombard them with questions or status update requests,  however this is your future. The only person in this process advocating for you is you. That's been my experience from my current profession anyway but I'm sure it transcends all.

Good point on the advocating for yourself thing. So, I went ahead and just sent a really brief email in reply to my 11/2 app complete email and got a very kind reply back that yes, I did make the deadline and yes, I still am under consideration and that it would take several weeks to get to my application. Whew! I feel better.

I received my email letting me know that my application was under review by the admissions committee on 9/21 and haven't heard anything since. I figure that the application committee has enough on their plate and that no news is good news at this point. It's not over until it's over!

Hi everyone,

 

Congratulations to those of you who has been accepted! For those still waiting, hang in there. I know first hand how painful it is. Hopefully you will here some good news soon!

 

For reference, here is my own timeline:

 

July 4th: CASPA Submitted

July 14th (or thereabout): CASPA verified

August 17th: Submitted Duke Supplemental Application

August 19th: Duke "Application Complete" email

October 7th: "Application is under Review" email

October 28th: Interview Invitation for December 7th

 

Also, if there is anyone who is interviewing on the same day and is interested in getting together the day/night before for dinner or coffee, please let me know! The interview process can be stressful and I know for me, it would be great to see a familiar face(s) the day of :)

I applied to Duke last year and received a rejection letter in, I believe, December. My review email was late September and it seems like they've already started in on October reviews. This leads me to believe I won't be invited for an interview but won't be officially rejected until December.

Just wanted to let everyone know that rejections have started to go out. I received mine today in the mail. Another one bites the dust. Goodluck to everyone that has been accepted or interviewing.

      Hi everyone! I knew that Duke's supplemental application would be a beast, but I was just curious if anyone had experience with the patient care and shadowing tabs? Here is what I am struggling with: 
      - PATIENT CARE: can the description be the same as on my CASPA? And what exactly should I be putting for the agreeable and disagreeable aspects of my responsibilities? 
      - Shadowing: can I put the same descriptions as my CASPA? 
      Thanks guys! Best of luck to everyone!

      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!
      As I come closer to making some tough decisions regarding programs, I am hoping to gather information and opinions from current students from the above programs or perhaps students who have interviewed at a combination of the above programs. More specifically, I am wanting to know if any students, interviewees, or alumni would be willing to share their personal experiences regarding 1) best and strongest aspects of the program 2) aspects that could be improved upon 3) level of support from faculty/program resources and 4) anything you were surprised about after matriculating into the program. I’d also like to know about any goofy things (location, parking, student perks) that you’d consider a plus or minus about the program. 
      I have interviewed and been accepted into two of these programs and interview at the third fairly soon. I really love each for different reasons...proximity to spouse, culture of the area, resources, etc., but find that having interviewed with so many programs back-to-back, I wish I would have conversed with current students during the interview day more extensively (interview and travel fatigue... 😶)
      Anyhow, I would appreciate any and all comments. 
      Thanks!

      Recent applicant accepted to multiple NC schools. Wondering if it is worthwhile to attend some of the private, high-ranked schools or if it makes more sense to favor in-state tuition, especially with sights set on primary care? 
      Schools I applied to: Duke, Wake, Campbell, UNC, ECU
      Would appreciate insight into any of the above programs, and whether the private schools really do give you a leg up!
      Thank you!

      I know it is early in the cycle, but I figured I would start a thread! Who else is applying? I am hoping to submit by end of next week!
