Does anyone know when in October we could be expecting to hear news regarding interviews or rejections?

Last year's thread looks like they started hearing back the first week of November, but in the email I received after submitting everything it said October is when they send out invites and November is when interviews are held, so I suppose we shall see!

@pipergasaway I havent heard back either! Do they only offer interview dates in November? 

No idea! I would look on the previous cycle thread to see when the last date was last year.

I interviewed on the 13th and got a phone call the same day.  In talking with some of the current students, it seemed like they found out differently.  Some same day, others not.

Has anyone who interviewed not heard the result? I thought we were supposed to hear on Friday but I haven’t received any emails or phone calls.

I’m in the same situation. I haven’t heard anything since the interview! Is this a neutral sign or does it mean we prob aren’t accepted

I was in one of the groups that was told Friday (the 17th) and then I didn't hear anything so I thought maybe Monday and still nothing so I called and they were like, oh Tuesday. It's almost 6 on Wednesday and I still haven't heard anything, no call or email, no yes, no, or waitlist, nothing. And I called the office just now and it went to voicemail so they probably left for the rest of the week because of the holiday. Am I the only one who still hasn't heard who is getting a little frustrated?

Have you heard anything yet? I'm still waiting as well.

I called on Monday to get more info. They said they reach out to candidates once a week. It seems like they keep deliberating until they have decided on the best cohort they can make because the person I spoke to couldn't tell me the latest possible time we might hear. He just said it's like a weekly thing. Today was the day for this week so if you didn't hear today, like me, there's a possibility they might reach out to you next week but no guarantee. And it seems like it's not the same day every week so you have to reach out if you want to know when to expect the possibility of contact. I just wish this process was explained better at the interview. :/

      Hello!
      I was wondering if anyone accepted into Boston University's program could share or message their application stats (gpa, HCE...), I want to know whether, if I were to apply in a later cycle I could be considered a competitive applicant. Thank you for reading this and thank you for your time, I appreciate it a lot!
      -Maylily7
      P.S. I'll put my stats here if ya want to comment on my chances of acceptance: cGPA 3.7, sGPA 3.5, Dean's List 7/8 semesters (currently in my last semester), about 100 hours volunteering for my school's EMS. I don't have a lot of Patient care hours but I am hoping to take a gap year and work on that. I also hope to retake the GRE to improve my score as well. Again, thanks so much!

      Just got invited for an interview at BU and noticed there wasn't already a thread for this admissions cycle, so I thought I'd start one. Anyone else applying/interviewing?

      Since there is no post about BU...
       
      Newer program, but I am insanely anxious to know if I'm going be offered an interview.. awesome program director, 2/3 of didactic is with med students, amazing A&P professors, etc..
       
      Some interviews are going to be emailed out tomorrow! Super hopeful for an invite, tomorrow or in the next few weeks.
       
      Who else applied and is checking their email 10+ times a day like me? :P

      I was wondering if any current students in the Boston University PA program would be able to share a bit about their experinces with the program. Since it is a newer program there is not much information out there besides what is posted on their website and what their admissons department has told me. Feel free to either pm or post on this topic page.
