It's been really quiet on here. Has anybody heard anything from the school after the deadline of May 26th?

I agree, it has been really quiet. Has anyone gotten a call about the waitlist or contacted the school?

I contacted the school to see if the current class is already full and here is their response:

As of right now all the seats have been taken and we don’t have any withdraws. I’m sorry, this class was a very tough selection. The wait-list / alternate list is in-case someone who has accepted a seat suddenly withdraws and we need to fill that seat, then we pull from our alternate list. The candidates that have accepted a seat have up to the time of the start of class (January 1) to withdraw and so we are unable to say who is not accepted from the wait list up until that time.

Hi everyone,

Just an update for you all as I know I was very anxious in waiting to hear about my potential acceptance into PA school. I received a call from the program regarding alternate acceptance. I unfortunately had to decline my alternate acceptance, an extremely difficult decision, but I had already accepted a seat to another program. This program was definitely one of the best program interviews I had the opportunity to be a part of (out of the many I've had) and have no doubt they'll graduate incredible PAs. Unfortunately, one can only be accepted and matriculate into one school :(

I hope good news comes someone else's way soon!

Hey everyone,

I just got the call this morning taking me off the waitlist and into the program!! I'm not 100% sure if I'm going to accept it yet since I've already accepted a seat somewhere else as well.

Hey guys! I’m a little confused and was hoping someone could give me some insight. I applied for the class to begin in Jan 2018. I got an interview and accepted it but due to some family problems, I had to withdraw the interview. I applied again this cycle for the incoming class of 2019 and I got a rejection email from them already today. In the email, it said that “applicants are evaluated in relationship to the entire applicant pool”. This confuses me because the deadline isn’t until March so how would they have already made a decision without looking at all of the applications. I AM REALLY HOPING that this was an email for LAST CYCLE and they’re giving everyone fibal decisions before the start of the program next year in January. Does anyone know how UoP application cycle works? I know I can call the admissions office but my anxiety is really kicking in late at night lol

Hello,

 

I want to apply and wanted to know more about the program. Why did you apply to the program and what do you like about it? It seems like a strong program with a faculty team that have very prestigious backgrounds. Their aren't any PANCE scores to look at either since it is a new program. Any information will be appreciated!

Interviewed and accepted for 16-17 cycle. Put down my deposit but ended up at a different program. I would confidently say to apply to this program. Their resources of professors are top notch and provide you with individuals like Jed Grant, who is an esteemed individual who can provide you with information and opportunities that match or exceed other top level institutions. Its an early program, and like any early program you need to put faith and time into it. Their first years seemed well prepared when I interviewed and visited again a couple months later.

      Hi Everyone,
      I am applying to PA schools this year. Here are some statistics about me
      3.0-3.1 Science GPA
      3.5 Cumulative GPA
      About 700 Volunteer Hours
      60 Shadowing hours of PA (3 different specialities)
      12 Hours of Shadowing a NP
      2,500 Direct Patient Care Experience as a CNA
      1st generation student (first to go to college)
      Honors student, along with being a peer mentor.
      How many schools do you think I should apply to?
      Sadly, my science GPA is low because I received a C+ in genetics, and a D in ochem, now retaking Ochem and more than likely will receive anything in the C Range.
      All my other pre-req's are all A's and Maybe 1 B or 2.
      Attended Pre-PA conference.
      Have not taken the GRE yet, but severely worried.
      Input? If you have been participating in cycles, please include some of your stats and the outcomes.
      THANKS EVERYONE.

      I need advice on how to handle a certain advisor at my school. There is a lot to this story but here is a nutshell: I'm majoring in Cell and molecular biology and this individual is the advisor for my degree. When I express my interest in PA school he shuts me down and makes me feel stupid for wanting to go that route (he discourages people from the medical feild even though this degree was designed for pre med and pre health students). I've gone to another professor to sign up for classes and when he found out he sought me out and said he is the only one who should be advising me. He told me I'm going to graduate in a year although that won't be enough time to finish my pre recs for PA school and when I say this he flat out talks over me and doesn't listen to me. This advisor has behaved inappropriately with me before and I have recognized him as a emotional manipulator. When I stand up for my self and don't do exactly what he wants me to do or I dont let him pry into my personal life he acts like a humongous baby and treats me like I'm a bad person. This creates an immense amount of stress and anxiety for me when all I want to do is just enjoy school and do well. I have to take 3 more classes with this person  plus a senior project but I have dread about it because of the way he acts. My school is so small that the way its designed, he's in charge of much of my academics because of my degree. I've even though about transfering schools because this feels so unhealthy but I don't want to run from a problem just because its hard. Any advice?
