It sounds like we’ll be hearing back starting tomorrow. Good luck to everyone and fingers crossed! ??

Hey all! Just wanted to chime in! I know the wait for some of you has been agonizing! But be patient as ADCOM sorts through applications. You may always reach out to ADCOM. It's their responsibil

There were 3 last year!  Congrats to those who got an interview today! To those still waiting, be patient! I had to wait as well!  See you at interviews ?

Hi Everyone,

I couldn't find that thread either. We need to liven up this one.

Anyhow,  @futurePAeryka, how was the info session? I went to one last year.

 

 

 

It was awesome! I really loved the school and the welcoming environment. EVMS is definitely my #1 choice! I'm very excited to apply. However, I am taking a few classes post grad, so I am waiting until late December when the final grades are posted to submit. I want those classes to be included in my last 40 credits GPA recalculation!

I love EVMS also and it's my number 1 choice as well! I'm in the same boat as you...still taking classes and applying late December.

I would get those up a lot more if possible. You do not have to have all materials in until March 1st which gives you time. They really focus on community involvement.

Question- If I took Anatomy and Physiology I and II and recieved a C+ in Part I, what should I do? I graduated college three years ago and have been working as a dietitian since.  Should I take Part 1 over at a community college? 

I'm in the same boat and I am retaking A&P I right now so it will be done by December so I can apply this cycle. On the supplemental application it will not let you added a grade lower than a B-! Good luck :)

Your volunteer hours are fine lol. My grades are slighty better but I got into EVMS with essentially 0 volunteer hours.

Hey all,

 

Is this the thread for the 2017-2018 application cycle??

I havent submitted my application because they don't conduct rolling admissions, and they usually wait until all applications are received and ranked and then they start sending interview invites. I havent done so because I am trying to see if I get accepted into other programs and save the money for the application. Any thoughts if this is a good move? Or should I go ahead and submit my application in CASPA?

Well it depends if you are really interested in going to EVMS or if it’s just a back up school. Evms accepts applications until March so you still have time. If you look at the bigger picture, the application fee is just a small price to pay for your future. The more schools you apply to, the better your chances are for an interview. Evms is a phenomenal program and highly ranked, you can’t go wrong with them if you were accepted :). Good luck!

Anybody know when they will start sending interview invites?



Well this year (for class of 2020) they sent out interviews within the first 2 weeks of June. Interviews were mid-end of July. They offered acceptances the first week of August. They interviewed everyone in one weekend which was nice. It was a horrible waiting period knowing that interviews were about a year after applying, but once you get an interview and acceptance it’s worth the wait! :)... good luck

For those who already applied. After I submit my CASPA application do I automatically go and submit the supplemental app or am I going to get some sort of go ahead from EVMS that my CASPA app has been received and I should go ahead an submit the supplemental application. Thanks In advance!

      Hi everyone! I’m Tati.
      I just graduated in December with my BS in Kinesiology. I had a low GPA, exactly 3.0.  I don’t know what my science gpa is but I can only assume that is low as well. I plan to retake O-Chem 1 ( I got an S grading for it Bc my school did the S/U grading in Spring 2019) & I plan to take Biochem this summer. 
      I just started getting patient hours as an Emt in December. Once the PA application opens, I think I’ll have about 500 hrs. By august, assuming I only pick up my shift hours & not OT; I’ll have ~1000 hrs.  I don’t have any shadowing experience & it’s pretty hard to get some now because of the pandemic. 
       
      im debating if I should apply this cycle with only the minimum hrs & a low gpa or should I wait, retake some classes & apply next yr? I’m very conflicted and don’t know what I should do. I know I want to go to Pa school but cannot decide on the timeline. 
       
      any advice is appreciated!
