Hey thanks for offering your help! Do you mind sharing your timeline for application submitted, interview, invite and date, and acceptance?

I applied the day applications opened last cycle (July 1st- something like that). I was asked for an interview the 3rd Monday of November and received an acceptance letter December 1st. I got a weeks notice via email, and most people get a letter in the mail in a week giving you an answer.

Our interviews started the end of August until December or later. It just depends on how full the class is, the waitlist, things like that.

They usually start interviews the end of August. Not really a timeline except we just started fall so faculty is probably getting us set up before they start sending out interviews invitations.

Hey guys I'm also in the class of 2019 with cmedley, I just wanted to drop by and wish everyone good luck of their ventures! Everyone wants advice for the interview so here's my 2 cents... get up early eat breakfast bc it's a LONG day, DO NOT park in a reserve spot bc you will get a parking ticket! The instructors really want to get to know everyone on a personal level so be yourself. Your "stats" only get you the interview I promise you! I'm as average as you could possibly get on paper but I had prior medical experience for 10 years. If you want to brush up on interview strategies go to YouTube and search ThePAcoach he has like 80 short videos that are free, even though he's trying to sell you extra, just watch his tips I used a handful of his advice during my interviews last year. I'm sure all of you will do great wether you get in this year or another! Don't stop applying, I got in my 2nd try. Good luck!

Patience is key! Our program starts in May so interviews run a little later than other programs. RRTtoPA-C gave great advice!!! I walked in thinking as though I already had a spot, and they just needed to meet me. Try not to get nervous really show your personality!

So this is what I know about the process before the PA dept. but don't quote me on it. Academic admissions gets your app first, they make sure everything checks out like GPA requirements, GRE scores, etc, and they read your admission essay. If everything checks out and they like your essay they pass it on, and your status changes to complete. So just because you submitted first doesn't mean someone else didn't beat you to the complete stage. They receive ALOT of apps the first day it opens, historically July 1st. Then the PA dept gets those apps and has to sift through them and pick out the ones they think would be the best "fit for this program." They pick about 15-20 people per interview date. With that being said, it's a rolling admission so they don't wait until they have all the apps and pick out 100-115 students to interview. So if they get 50 apps the first day they are "complete" odds are they can find 10-15 students to interview from the first day. Just to give you some rule of thumb, I applied the 2nd or 3rd week after it opened and received an invite for Oct. Typically they send invites out a week or two before the interview date and interview till the class fills up typically in Dec or Jan.

      Good Day Everyone,
       
      I applied to an EMPA Residency offered by Georgia Regents University/ Medical College of Georgia. I wanted to know if any fellow PAs applied to this program as well. 
       
      For those who are curious, this program is not listed on the APPAP.org website. I actually found this residency while searching for "unlisted" PA residencies. The school doesn't even have a web "link" for the EMPA residency. Information about the residency can be found at www.doceos.us/course-physician_assistant_program-i10869.htm. I was told by the residency coordinator that the info on this website is quite outdated, so I am still waiting to learn about the details of the residency.
