Application for Fall 2017

90 posts in this topic

Hello Everyone, I want to stay connected with all of my fellow pre-PA students who are applying to York College. I submitted my application recently and it is verified by the CASPA. The only thing I am missing is the GRE.

Hi-

 

I would like to apply here as well. I was wondering how your stats are? My gpa is low, but I have good experience hours.

Hi-

Hey PA17, my GPA is 3.5 and science GPA is 3.4. I did not take GRE yet. HCE is 850+ and I am currently continuing my healthcare volunteering. I am currently working on my bachelor's at York College.

I want to ask you that look at their requirements may be you can still apply and you know good experience hours are more important and you have good hours of HCE. 

What are your stats?

I emailed admissions and they said I can still apply based on my stats. I have over 2000 volunteering hours, I did medical brigades, I did various shadowing in urgent care, and I am a medical assistant (Still continuting and building upon patient care hours). I hope ny experience plays a bigger role and I am hoping to get an interview in this school.

Hi pa17, that's good that you decided to apply. Yes, volunteering plays an important role. Did they tell you anything about interviews? When will they start interviews? Did you take GRE?

Thank you! In terms of my stats, that is what is scaring me. I have overall GPA 3.456 and science 2.9 (I am still taking Microbiology and Exercise Physiology). They just said I could apply when i gave them all my information, so I applied recently and I emailed them stating if they received my application and they said they did! I am not sure when interviews would start - but i am assuming later! Also, i did take the GREs in summer and I self-studied using Manhattan Prep.

That's good. I am going to take GRE in December. GRE scares me more than anything else. I have read forums of the last cycle and it looks like they start conducting interviews in Early March through April and May.

Hey pa17, 

I want to know that how did you tell the ETS that you want to send your GRE grades to CASPA? When I registered for GRE, they did not ask me how I want to use these scores? Can you please tell me how did you tell ETS to send your scores to CASPA? 

Thank you.

Hi! I  was wondering if you knew when interviews start? I applied at the end of July/beginning of August and received an e-mail asking if I was planning on taking BioChem (bc it is a required course--I'll be taking it this spring), after that however I never received another message.

Hey, the interviews will start in march. They did not send any email to me either.

Hi-

 

When you take in gres, after that you can send it to the schools you like (i believe its up to 3-4 free schools you can send). if you dont want to send it or you think you want to take it again, you can wait to send your scores again but you will have to pay $23

Happy holidays and I hope 2017 will bring good news for us about our selection.

I applied close to the deadline. Does anyone know if that will make a difference? I have heard that Sophie-Davis doesn't even look at the applications til after the deadline. Is it the same at York? Also, I was not able to get my past employers to send over a employment confirmation to prove my clinical hours, do you think that will be negatively viewed by the admissions team?

I think your stats are more important compare to when you submitted your application. I think you should call admissions office to make sure about your confirmation document if you can submit it now. I don't know if it will matter since you wrote in your application about your experience.

Hello everyone, admissions office is sorting out applications. Some students even received rejection emails. We are safe so far since we did not receive any emails about our application. They will have meeting in February and after that they will start calling students for interviews.

That makes me really hopeful so far if they already sent out some rejections. I would LOVE to attend this program. Crossing my fingers for everyone!!! I would be moving from Minnesota! Ah!!!

Thank you! 

Here's my timeline (roughly):

8/3/16: CASPA everything was submitted and verified.

 

8/10/16: I got an e-mail from York asking about when I plan on taking one of the prerequisites I have yet to complete. (Assuming they had finished reviewing my application at this point)

After that e-mail, I did not hear back from them until I got my interview invite on 2/15!

Hey Clynn, I want to ask you that did you receive any second email regarding confirmation that you are having an interview? I received an email when I scheduled my interview but after that I didn't receive second confirmation email. Also, I hope you did great today.

Thanks.

Nm. I just received a second email confirming my interview schedule.

 

Hi! Congrats on your interview!

 

Would you be willing to share your stats with us? I heard they've sent out rejection emails and I'm just trying to see where I stand as I haven't heard back yet...*anxious*

 

Thank you so much.

Hey Ruby, don't worry. They will conduct interviews in March and April through May. They interview 3-4 students per day that is why it may take more time.

My cumu GPA: 3.5

Science: 3.4

I did below average in GRE but I have good heathcare experience.

Don't worry if you didn't get any information from them.

Hey PrePA91,

 

They tell students that they will be busy with interviews during March. I assume she referred to the entire month of March. After that, she said that students will not hear anything back from them in March. After finishing all the interviews, then they will make decisions. However, last year, they sent decisions of acceptance earlier. Did you go to interview yet?

Hope for the best.  :-)

Hey Pre-PA21,

 

Yes I've already interviewed and waiting to hear back. The wait is agonizing but hoping for the best! Best of luck to you also! :)
