Application Cycle 2016-2017

Recommended Posts

Did they mention anything about how many have already been accepted? I interviewed in December and haven't heard anything. No email, no phone call. I've tried calling a few times but only got voicemail and I didn't want to leave one!

What I saw from the last year, some receive phone call in one week but some receive rejection email in 2 days. So can it be no news is good news?

lol I'm trying to decide! I figured when they told us end of Jan to hear back that they'd want to wait until they've interviewed another group. But obviously they've already sent some acceptances. So idk! I mean, they haven't rejected me yet! Hoping to hear positive news in the next couple weeks :)

I got this today:

 

The Physician Assistant Program Admissions Committee has requested additional time to review your file.  I can assure you that your application is being given careful consideration. We will notify you when the Committee decides to take further action.

Is there anyone else out there who applied fairly late in the game? I just got an email this morning saying my application is complete and under review. Also does anyone know how many students have been accepted so far?

I'm right there with you, Anna K. Fingers crossed. No idea how many have been accepted.

 

I was looking at past year's threads for Mercer application cycles and I saw someone who completed their application on 2/10 and was offered an interview on 3/2 for 3/31. So hopefully that means we still have a chance!

@awoodham, I got an email asking me to interview 3 days after I submitted my supplemental. I also know someone else who got thathe email a month after they submitted everything. I think it just varies

Has anyone for the March 31st interview received their email detailing time, place, and other instructions for the day of the interview? I haven't received that yet!

My application file was complete 2/15 but I posted new GRE scores and a new letter of recommendation to CASPA a week after that. I called Mercer today and they said that I should email the admissions office to notify them of the update to my application. Has anyone else sent any updates and how did you go about doing that?

Just reviewed an interview invite for 4/29. Anyone else?!

 

Also, what time do the interviews typically start and end? They said I will receive an email including times in the next couple weeks but I would love to have an idea so I can get a flight and room asap!

I received that email on February 27th and an invite to interview on March 15th. I submitted my application in mid February

Ok I'm just wondering because I received the "application complete" email on 3/2. I just wonder is 4/29 the last interview date.

I feel like 4/29 is the last date because they did one in December, one in feb, now one in march and then the one in April. On my interview day they interviewed almost 40 people and I remember someone telling me they usually only interview about 150!

Hi I received an invite for the Saturday April 29 interview. I'm trying to book plane tickets and have not yet heard back about the time of the interview/length. Could someone help me out? Thanks so much!
