I know I am way ahead of the system being that the 2015-2016 cycle is still underway, but I'd like to get an idea from those applying currently what to expect and what is has been like with CASPA.

I applied last year and was put on the alternate list... They usually don't interview until october .... If you have questions call them ... They are very helpful

Also, what kind of HCE, scores, etc. did you apply with?

I talked to one girl who had the bare minimum as far as GRE and HCE and she got accepted to Shreveport a couple of years ago.

I had a 3.46 overall at the time last year. I had a 302 gre with a 4.0 in writing.... I had worked as a scribe in the Er for about 5 months when I got my interview. This year my gpa is a little higher and I have now worked 1 year as a scribe and I got a job a view months ago performing cardiac stress tests. I didn't go to their info session but the director has come to the pa club meetings many times at LSU that I attended.

Good luck to everyone!

 

I received an interview invite today for October 5th!!!

 

I submitted CASPA on July 23rd. LSU confirmed receipt of my CASPA on July 28. LSU said my application was in committee review on August 18th. 

 

 

Edited: After being accepted to another program, I cancelled my interview with LSU.

How did they notify you guys? Email or phone call? And are you LA residents? Getting nervous because I was in comitee review on July 31 :/

They notified me via email, and yes, I'm a Louisiana resident. I was also notified that I was under committee review on July 31. Good luck!

Thanks ! Trying to stay positive . I'm a Texas resident though, so that could be hurting me . Fingers crossed.

From what I gathered at the information session, it seemed like it would be extremely difficult to get in from out of state. I wanna say it's a class of 38 and they accept 35 from Louisiana.

They notified me via email and I am a Louisiana resident.

 

Don't get discouraged! There's still plenty of time to hear from them. They have interviews in October and November. Good luck!

Anybody have any info on the interviews themselves and what to expect?

No, but Mrs. Lurry said they would be sending out more details via email around a week before the interview, so I imagine we'll hear something this week.
