Hi everyone!

 

I'm planning my wedding for early next year (Feb 2017), but also applying to PA school in this upcoming admissions cycle. I want to be 100% sure I won't have any interviews during that time so I can actually enjoy my wedding, and more importantly actually do well in the interviews! I'm looking to apply to Duke, Yale, Baylor, UC Davis, Emory, George Washington, and the list goes on :) Anyone know when (what months/weeks) interviews for all the country's top programs are generally conducted? 

 

Thanks!

February is still early enough that some schools may be conducting late interviews.  You can check their websites but any school will tell you that it can vary by year depending on their schedule and how many dates they choose to offer.

 

Or you can check the individual PA pages for the schools you are interested in to get an idea, but again, nothing is guaranteed.

There were a few interviews that, when offered dates, I couldn't do because of conflicts. There were zero problems with this from the programs, and they offered different dates. They understand that life happens. Just be honest with them when they reach out to offer an interview.

Check their websites or just call the programs. It varies. I interviewed at Duke this past January while others interviewed much earlier. Calling directly will yield the best results. Best of luck!

      Looking for help brainstorming thoughtful questions in order to get application feedback - besides "how can I make my application stronger?". There is always room for improvement, just looking for the right questions to ask.

      I am someone who is pursuing PA school after being out of school for a number of years.  I am borderline for the 10 year mark for prerequisites and plan to retake the common courses to open my application eligibility pool.  The problem I am running into is that a lot of programs require you to complete prerequisites the December before matriculation. I have at least two courses I would need to take in the Spring to be up-to-date in all coursework.  This means I would need to sit out this application cycle due to the December timeline.  Does anyone know where I could find a list or have some suggestions of schools who accept students conditional of courses being complete at the time of matriculation rather than by December?  I know Penn State, Emory, and a few others do this.  Do you know of others?
       
      clarifying part:  I have most of the prerequisites done already except for OChem and Chem 2.  I am just retaking because I am so borderline or the 10 year time limit many programs have.

      I'm currently a junior in college and have decided to switch career paths from a dietitian to a PA. I don't have any PCE hours (except for some volunteer EMS hours in high school) so I am wondering the timeline for how I would apply to PA school if I took a gap year. I am a college athlete so I can only obtain very minimal HCE hours during the academic year and thus plan on taking a gap year to work as a PT aide and volunteer EMT. From what I have researched most PA school applications open up in June for the program to start the following year, and there is no way I could get the minimum amount of hours before applying. If I take a gap year after my senior year, then apply to school, this would mean waiting two years to begin school. Is it possible to complete PCE hours after applying, or do you think it would be a better idea to strengthen my application through two years of experience as an EMT & PT aide. Thanks in advance!

      I thought I’d start this since I didn’t see any posts about this application cycle yet. Has anyone heard back besides the normal “we received your application” email?

      I thought I would start this thread since CWRU is one of my top choices! I have not submitted my application yet, but I plan to do so middle July. Good luck everyone!
