University of South Carolina PA Program 2017-2018


Recommended Posts

Hi, guys! I looked around and didn't see a new topic for this year's CASPA cycle for USC, so I started one here. 

 

I submitted my CASPA application on May 10th, received an email to do the supplemental application on May 11th, and submitted my supplemental application on May 11th. Now, I'm just waiting to hear back!

Hi, guys! Super excited for everyone who is applying! I am currently a student at USCSOM's PA program, and I would love to answer any questions you guys have about the program.

 

Good luck!

Hi! Thank you for being on this forum. Do you know when they will be starting interviews and offering interview invites?

Good luck to everyone on their interviews!!  I just submitted my app today. I submitted most apps back in May but USC just told me they'd still allow me to apply even though my last couple pre-reqs won't be done until December 16th instead of 15th. So excited. My dad went to USC for undergrad. 

What were the timeline and stats  for those who received interviews?

Hey ya'll! I accepted an interview date for July 21st. I live in Columbia, if anyone other applicants would like to meet up for dinner the night before or explore the city after interviews please let me know, I would love to get together to try to lessen the stress of interviews!

Awesome! 

What are your favorite things about the program/what made you choose USC over any others?

 

Hotel recommendations? Interviewing on the 28th.

 

Thanks!

Can you please shed light on the nature of the MMI interviews(how intense, actors, roleplaying?)?  Also, what does USC SOM do better than any other schools.  I am so excited and ready for this interview, I have been working for almost 3 years to apply.  Thanks so much!

They have not given out any acceptance yet as far as I know. They told us (the 1st interview group) that it would be 4 weeks plus some days before we heard anything because they wanted to have another set of interviews before they accepted anyone. In my interview group there were 15 people. I would be careful digging for info outside of what they gave in the interview packet in order to keep it fair for all the other applicants. I can say that the purpose of the MMI and individual interviews is to measure non-cognitive abilities. Therefore, you won't be asked to solve any math or science problems. Be yourself and you will do fine! One of the really cool things is that you will see their ultrasound center!

Please keep us posted.

 

Did they say how many students would be in the matriculating class?

 

Greatly appreciated!

      Hi everyone,
      I'm currently a sophomore in my undergrad and I plan on applying for the 2022-2023 cycle, at the end of my junior year. I'm working on my application slowly throughout the year so I'm ready to submit early in the cycle (mid-May) and get a head start for programs with rolling admissions. 
      However, my university won't release my second semester junior year official transcript until mid-June. That means if I submit my application mid-May, I'd only be submitting my official grades up until my first semester of junior year of college. Should I wait for my official transcript to be ready and submit mid-June, or should I go ahead and submit mid-May and update CASPA once my second semester grades are ready?
      I'm so torn on what to do. I'm afraid if I only have 5 semesters worth of grades on my transcript, I will be seen as a weak applicant. On the other hand, I'm afraid if i don't submit early I'll potentially lose some interviews. I know once I submit my official transcript, the grades I update won't count towards my GPA, but I'm not worried about that because I'll most likely have around a 3.75 gpa regardless. 
      Any advice is appreciated!

      Hi everyone! I’m looking to take on some more pre-PA students who need help with CASPA review, personal statement brainstorming/editing and interview prep.
      I’m 4.5 years out of PA school with experience in NYC and Baltimore and am a former interview committee member! 
      Please send an email to applyingtopaschools@gmail.com for more info and pricing!

      Hi everyone, I did not see a thread for this year so I went ahead and made one! I submitted my CASPA on May 14th and then my supplemental app on May 18th. Haven’t heard anything yet. How about everyone else?

      Hello! I thought I would get the forum for the SIU application started!
      Has anyone had trouble filling out the supplemental application? There is no option to choose "Summer 2022".
