2017-2018 Application Cycle (PA Campus)

43 posts in this topic

I'm a tad bit confused as to how this application fee for PCOM works.  Am I supposed to get an email from them, or is there a website where I can just pay the $75 fee? I submitted on Friday afternoon/evening. I think most schools have responded with a generic email etc. etc. by now.

You wait for them to send you an email to pay the fee. Keep in mind that (assuming your CASPA was actually verified as opposed to only being submitted) you submitted the night before the weekend when they may have no work hours. Plus it definitely took them about a week to send me the link after I submitted in May. Be patient; you'll get the email.

How long did it take for your PA/MD/DO/NP letter to say received on PCOM's portal after they actually got it? I got an email saying that they received my letter but it still hasn't been entered into my online application summary?

I have not heard back from PCOM either. All my information is in and supplement paid, just playing the waiting game.

Just submitted my CASPA application yesterday! I guess I'll be waiting for the supplemental before too much more will happen.

So this program has only 20 seats?

That's for the GA campus. For the class of 2019 PA campus, they had 55 students matriculate.

Just got an email for an interview invite on 10/10, verified 6/21 

Also I got a fortune cookie last night saying "one of your dreams will come true tomorrow" so this was very exciting.

edit: rescheduled to 10/13 because I can't make up microbio lab :( If anyone else has conflicts she said you can only reschedule once so keep that in mind

Is it true that you will not hear back if you are not receiving an interview until after interviews are completed? 

Also has anyone that hasn't heard anything reached out to the school to ask about the status of their application?

Does anyone know how large the interviewee groups are on interview days? Such as 5 people? 10 people? 50 people?

Hey guys. Has anyone heard back from PCOM after the 9/29 Interview? I know they said 4-6 weeks but last year people heard back literally days after.

@Zinny don't worry about me. Not the only school I applied to and there's still time. It does hurt not to hear from your first choice school, but my motto is if i can't affect it, i won't let it effect me.

So anyone been flat out rejected yet or are they going to make us wait until all the interviews are done? Haven't hear anything and had my CASPA verified very early. Just wondering what that might mean

Does anyone know if they wait to send out rejections until after all the interviews/acceptances are done? Or should we hear from them regardless anytime now/soon

Do you think there is still a chance they will have another interview date in the near future and they haven't sent out emails just yet? I applied in September and don't know if they reviewed my application or if they have already made a decision on my application?! Do you think the best thing to do is call them and if so, is there a specific department/person I should call?

Compared to the rest of my interviews this was one of the most laid back interviews I had. First there's an introduction to the program, then you take a tour and the last thing you do is your actual interview. You interview individually with two faculty members of the program for about twenty minutes. They really tried to break the ice and make the interview fun and enjoyable!
