Some of our class (PA17) came from the wait list including myself. I was wait listed for a few weeks. Also a couple of our classmates didn't join us until May, so there's always some hope.

I hope so. I'm still waiting to hear back about an interview I had with another school. However, DMU is my first choice. I'm unclear of what to do if I get accepted at this other school. I wouldn't mind going there, but going to DMU would work better for me. :-/ The lady I spoke with today told me they won't let us know about waitlist stuff until late March! I hope she's wrong about that.

DMU does rolling admissions. Last year 4 of us that interviewed on the same day are in the class of 2017, so I don't think they base it on picking 2-3 per group. Im in the same class as Zach. Congrats

To be honest, I don't remember when exactly I finished my prereqs. I know I was taking an online developmental psych course at the time I interviewed (I'm pretty sure it was an accelerated course in t

Huh, I just realized there was no thread for applicants here this year. Anyway, submitted and verified in June. Just received an interview invite for September (my first invite; very excited). Best

DMU is a good school, love it here. Admissions team is also wonderful, so if they say you won't hear until March I'm sure that's probably true. But then again, they can pull from the wait list at any time so maybe you'll hear before then. Just keep checking that email. :)

Well, at this rate, DMU is my only hope unless the last 2 schools on my list offer me interviews. Which they likely wont. The admit staff at DMU said the waitlist was tiered into 3 sections. They said that they'll let people know what tier they are in but not their specific place on the list. Apparently, this ranking is based primarily on the interview.

Disregard that last post from me, made a group page instead. It's still called Des Moines university PA class of 2018.

I actually have an interview there on Tuesday, so I was just wondering if there were still open spots or if they were just trying to fill there waitlist! I also believe there were 2-3 other interview dates after mine

Wow, really? That seems SO late. Good luck to you! I suppose they haven't filled the class yet. I interviewed in November and got waitlisted then.

I was just accepted off the waitlist.  I interviewed back towards the end of November and received the call this past Friday.  There's still hope for all of you still waiting to hear back!  

Did you receive any communication about where you were on this list? I was told they would email out tiers in March. Congrats to you! I'm sitting on two waitlists right now.

      Hi everyone,
      I'm currently a sophomore in my undergrad and I plan on applying for the 2022-2023 cycle, at the end of my junior year. I'm working on my application slowly throughout the year so I'm ready to submit early in the cycle (mid-May) and get a head start for programs with rolling admissions. 
      However, my university won't release my second semester junior year official transcript until mid-June. That means if I submit my application mid-May, I'd only be submitting my official grades up until my first semester of junior year of college. Should I wait for my official transcript to be ready and submit mid-June, or should I go ahead and submit mid-May and update CASPA once my second semester grades are ready?
      I'm so torn on what to do. I'm afraid if I only have 5 semesters worth of grades on my transcript, I will be seen as a weak applicant. On the other hand, I'm afraid if i don't submit early I'll potentially lose some interviews. I know once I submit my official transcript, the grades I update won't count towards my GPA, but I'm not worried about that because I'll most likely have around a 3.75 gpa regardless. 
      Any advice is appreciated!

      Hi everyone! I’m looking to take on some more pre-PA students who need help with CASPA review, personal statement brainstorming/editing and interview prep.
      I’m 4.5 years out of PA school with experience in NYC and Baltimore and am a former interview committee member! 
      Please send an email to applyingtopaschools@gmail.com for more info and pricing!
