My friend and I submitted our CASPA application on October 10th and then it was verified on the 13th. She has not heard back from Charles Drew yet. I received an interview invitation on Thanksgiving, November 24th for an interview date on December 9th. I feel like they already filled their interview dates for the rest of this cycle (only December and January remain). They invited me on Thanksgiving day which is odd because 1. it is a holiday 2. It is short notice, which leads me to believe that someone from the December 9th date canceled their interview and I was next on the "interview waitlist" to get an invitation.

Congrats to you! I would've jumped at the chance to interview despite the short notice. I'm still going to keep my fingers crossed for a January spot. Many schools only give a month notice. I got an interview on Friday 12/2 for a January spot at another school. Please update after your interview as I'm sure they'll let you know where they're at in the admission process. Good luck and kick ass in the interview. You got this!

I'm having difficulty finding information about what happened to CDUs accreditation status in 2011. Did they lose it or did they pause it to switch to a master's program?

One of the hurdles the old program had to deal w was the closing if MLK Hospital across the street which was one of the major rotation sites. This along with the need to transition to a masters program and admin changes lead to its close. Well the hospital is back up and running and is gorgeous!! The program is working to set up site contracts w them, but in the meantime they have contracts with dozens of healthcare facilities and multiple hospitals. Their list is quite impressive. Please keep in mind that this isnt a reopened or revamped program. This is an entirely new program. New faculty, new administration, new everything. It was completed from the ground up my Director Moini and is fantastic. The fact that they had a program in the past gave them insight but its a completely new program with a great direction towards underserved populations, social justice and is included their program mission. Best of luck to those interviewing this week!!

I was accepted into Charles Drew PA Program on 12/12/2016. 

I interviewed on 12/09/2016

 

I want to wish everyone luck. 

I just really showed the program who I am and I think some of us lose sight of that due to nerves of interview day. I used to hate hearing this advice; however, it is true. Therefore, no matter where you apply everyone, be yourself. 

 

"The greatest gift you can give is time, it is something you can never get back."

 

I truly pray for everyone to do well. Never give up and keep pushing until you make this dream into a reality.

For those of you that got accepted this month and paid the deposit, have you gotten more information back yet? Like the Facebook invite, background check site and the likes? I paid mine on Friday and haven't heard anything yet

Keep in mind that its Christmas break. Not sure they are in the office. We (the students) are on break until second week of January. Once they receive your deposit though, they'll send you the information. Just be patient.

Hey everyone!

 

Congrats on getting accepted!

 

I am trying to update CDU on my transcripts, but I can't find an e-mail address to their admissions.

Does anyone happen to know it?

 

Thanks!

I am trying to update CDU about my transcript. Can it be processed if I send it in? Has anyone else gotten accepted apart from the people accepted on 12/12/2016? Waiting patiently to receive good news from PA CDU
