I felt the same way at first. However, I believe few seats opened up last year due to their BS to PA student dropping out or failing to meet requirements. I don't know how many seats will open up this year.

It is hard to decide to accept to go interview for a waitlist. I feel like what if this is the only school that will accept me and to not give it a try might hold me back another year. :/

I also applied to this program but received no such email.. and I'm kind of confused about this... CASPA opened in APRIL. How in the heck are all their seats filled up by now for next year? Am I missing something? Did they interview people within the time CASPA opened till now, and filled all their seats up? I find that hard to believe maybe I'm misunderstanding something here.

They have I believe 5 year BS to PA program and majority of the seats are already filled up through that. So, the only time we would get chance to interview for a seat is if one of the students in that program drop out or do not meet the requirements. I had to read the previous years thread and read through the schools website about their BS to PA program.

I just received an interview invite for the waitlist. I agree with you and doubt that there would be students dropping their seats- they already got into their master program so I don't see a reason to waste money to apply for other programs. :/

Well at least you know your competitive enough for an interview!  When did you apply/verified??

I just received an email inviting for interview for the waitlist as well. Even though it is for waitlist, I needed this as having started to get rejection emails from few schools already. I emailed and requested Oct 9th interview date. Hopefully, things go well and the waitlist people get chance to matriculate.

My application was completed 6/19.

Good luck everyone.

I'm in the same position. I'll be flying in from Cali. Still deciding if it is worth all the travel cost for a waitlist position. 

Same here, will be flying out of LAX.

I figured maybe I would call the school and ask about the chances of getting a seat if anyone hasn't done that yet

For those of you going to the interview from out if state, what airport or mode of transportation do you believe is easiest to get to the school? 

It looks like your coming out from my state.

Im leaving out of LAX on the 8th into Pitts and staying at a motel next to the airport. Ill be driving in on the 9th from Pitts and its about a 2 hour drive.

From my research this was the cheapest option even if its a bit out of the way.

What part of cali are you flying out of?

Hey guys,

The 10/9 interview is coming up and I will be arriving this Sunday (10/8) at a hotel 15 minutes from the campus.  Does anyone want to get together that day to check out the campus, and discuss any details about the interview?

As this is my first interview, I know the process can be a bit stressful.

Feel free to pm me!  Thanks, and best of luck to all of you!

--Ethan
