Sure. Cumulative: 3.45, science: 3.89. GRE: 315, 5.0. About 120 hours volunteering in a hospital, 40 PA shadowing hours, and I've been working as a full time surgical tech since June (so not a ton of hours there). I'm a non-traditional applicant, coming from a non-healthcare field before surg tech. 

Thank you, and congratulations! Good luck on your interview, and let us know how it goes!

Incoming students, I heard through the grapevine that South is providing you guys with the PA school prep course before you start, is this true?  This would be awesome!

I was recently accepted into another PA program, so I gave up my interview spot for 10/13. Hopefully another candidate gets to take my interview seat and good luck to all those applying!

I know I shouldn't be nervous about not hearing anything from them since this was only the first interview, I'm just praying that they will interview and accept me!!

I completely understand, this wait is mentally exhausting (nothing compared to actual PA school xD) Stay strong and good luck :)

The interview day was fantastic. SO impressed by all of the students and faculty, and the facitilites. Both first and second year students were there to answer questions and give tours. Got a great vibe. I was accepted - they tell you at the end of the day. Good luck to everyone, I'm thrilled to be joining the class of 2020 next fall.

Not sure what your second question is... the format was: informal convo with students at breakfast, intro of program/faculty, tour, one hour group interview, lunch, then individual interview (which was short, they tell you if you're in or not and what they might want you to continue to work on).

Hey guys! I just applied to South College on Oct 8th and received an email on Oct 12th saying everything was received and ready for review. I'm wondering what the timelines have been for others to be offered an interview? I'm refreshing my email too often and stressing myself out (already) :)

I think the timeline is different for everyone depending on stats and such. I submitted in June and haven't heard anything yet.

Same here. Last year when I applied I didn’t hear back until March of this year about not getting an interview but my stats have changed in a positive since then

Is it too late to apply? I know the deadline is March 1st but I'm wondering if its too late for me too apply since people have already been accepted.

It is not too late to apply. The interviews usually go until April

Not to be a Debbie downer, but has anyone received a rejection letter yet or do they wait until all applications are in before sending them out?
