2017-2018 Application Cycle (PA Campus)

Recommended Posts

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.

I submitted 6/21 and paid my supplemental fees on 6/28. I haven't heard back yet. Email says they typically interview September-February. Good luck to everyone!

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?

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.
