I'm applying here. For you guys that have done the supplemental application: is there a fee attached? Couldn't find any info about a cost on their site.

Hey everyone - I'm the current PA student body President here at the University of Charleston in WV.  I'm happy to answer any program/personal questions you may have regarding our program.  If you have general questions regarding prereqs or anything along those lines, please check out our site at It's very comprehensive.

 

Feel free to ask me questions here or PM me directly.

 

Congrats to those with interviews already!  We are already seeing high interest in the program and I personally expect that to grow when our certification is changed to Ongoing for the next CASPA cycle!

I just applied today! How quickly did you all hear from the school? I haven’t gotten the supplemental application link yet, but everything else is done and verified - GRE and CASPA

I got an "application complete" email the same day my caspa was verified an email with the supplemental the following day. I submitted my supp app a week later and got confirmation saying my overall app was now complete the next day. I got the interview six days from the final "complete" email. Hope that helps! 

 

They seem to be really fast and efficient!

Wow that's is pretty quick!

 

Well I'm kinda worried I don't have the qualifications to get into PA school this time around, but I was wondering what you guys have for your stats?

Thanks, I hope so! That's all I'm asking for is an invite, things will take care of themselves after that

Submitted supplemental application last night.

Received email from Pam this morning stating that my app is complete and has been forwarded for committee review.

 

Now we wait.
