Good day future PAs,

 

I'm starting this thread because I am curious to know where my fellow UTHSCSA applicants are in the 2009-2010 application process. I interviewed last year in October 2008, didn't make the cut, but was placed on the alternate list. I hope this year will be better being that I applied to more schools this year; as opposed to only 2 last year.

 

My CASPA application was sent in June, now I'm just waiting. So far, I have applied to 10 other PA programs and have completed my SupApps for UTHSCSA, A.T. Still University (AZ), Medical College of Georgia, and PCOM. I have received an invite to interview at Touro Univerity-Nevada on 8/19/2009. Looking forward to it, but hope to receive more invites from other schools.

 

Good luck to all who applied as well as those planning to apply. I'm very sure that I'm not only speaking for myself when I say "the good fortune of others give me hope."

 

Good luck to you all in all your endeavors. I hope to hear responses soon. :)

Perhaps the title of this thread is misleading.

 

I was trying to touch basis with applicants participating in the 2009-2010 application cycle; in other words this thread is for applicants competing for seats in the PA class that starts in fall 2010. I hope this clears some things up and hopefully, I get some responses.

 

Where am I in this whole application fiasco? I have already interviewed at Touro University-Nevada and will not find out my status until mid-November. I have secured an interview at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in mid-September. Looking foward to meeting with the faculty, students, and staff. Seen pictures of the campus- seems to be a very sophisicated and beautiful school.

 

I hope you all have secured interviews and I will you all the best of luck.8-)

I'm a fellow applicant with you...and like you, I'm just in the waiting game at the moment. I turned in the last of my supplementals on August 3, hoping that I'd hear something on the early side, but so far nothing...congrats on your interview slots though!

Hey there Fox,

 

I hope you have applied to more than one program. I certainly hope you get an invite to interview soon.

Patience is a virtue if you have patience. To wait or not to wait, that is the question.

It feels like a bad breakup. I had applied to 6 programs and haven't heard from any of them. I'm such a loser.

 

Waiting sucks..does anyone know when they plan on sending out invites , and if it's by phone/email/post

 

good luck everyone !

Hey there Brownbear,

 

Last year, invites were sent via e-mail. I got my e-mail around the last week of September to interview on 11Oct08. I reckon if they sched interviews the way they did last year, we may start hearing something perhaps mid to the end of this month.

 

Happy waiting!!!

I feel the same way sometimes.:D It will pass. I promise. Just keep your self busy, and before you know it, you'll get a phonecall or email from a school you almost forgot you applied to.

Hello everyone,

 

I hope you all are doing well thus far in the application cycle. Congrats and much luck to you all who have secured interviews, interviewed, have been accepted, and waiting to be accepted.

 

I figure that UTHSCSA may begin contacting applicants any day now for interviews. Pretty excited and hope we all hear from them soon. :cool:

No email, no call, letter, facebook/myspace tags; no contact watsoever. Perhaps I was meant to deliver pizzas for the rest of my life.

 

So has anyone else recieved a transcript review yet? How long should we expect before hearing about interviews?

I have received the transcript review back in July, but I have not heard anything from them since then. I though they usually started their interview cycle in September, so I am kinda surprised that no one has heard anything.

I applied too but I sent my app in kind of late. So just to be clear before you get an interview they send you a letter saying they reviewed your transcripts?

I got a transcript evaluation sheet that has all your prerequisites that have been reviewed and a new GPA that they calculated on it. I am assuming that you receive this before an interview invite, but I don't know this for certain.

I got my transcript eval yesterday- But there were a few classes they said didn't have labs that did. So some corrections needed on it. My pre-req GPA looks surprisingly good, but my last 30 is pretty brutal. We'll see what happens, but I don't know how those corrections will be made if my transcript eval has already been sent to ad com.

I'm assuming that because I have met all the pre-requsite requirement is why I did not receive any transcript review letter? Either way, I will continue to be the best pizza delivery person ever ever ever.

First interviews are oct. 24..they said we should hear something in the next few weeks

 

I called the program today. I was told first set of interview invites should be sent out tomorrow (Friday).

 

I didn't call to finagle info out of them. I actually am considering attending another interview on Oct 21 and wanted to decrease the cost of my travels so I called to inquire about it. It's gonna get exciting!!!!!:)

by email right ? so nerve-racking

 

Darn it. I should've asked. Last year, invites were sent out by email. Perhaps invites will be sent as such this year. You may want to call and ask. I don't want to call because I think I'm starting to get on thier nerves :p.

 

Best wishes everyone!
