Hello all,

I noticed a discussion thread has not yet been started for this year's application cycle. I recently received an email from admissions letting me know that my application has been received and is under review. Where is everyone else in the application process? Any little drops of wisdom on how the Stanford admissions process typically goes, or the merits/drawbacks of their curriculum and program?

Thanks, and good luck

Does anyone know if there is a Supplemental Application this year?

I appreciate the help!

I believe the only supplemental part of the application was on CASPA. There were a few questions about where you see yourself practicing in the future and things like that. Other than that I don't think there was anything separate from CASPA that you had to fill out. Correct me if I am wrong!

When did you submit you app through CASPA? I submitted July 14th, and have not gotten a confirmation email. I'm thinking of maybe calling on Monday about it.

      Last week I got my first official application decision of the cycle. Opening the email, I scanned the words frantically until I found the sentence I was fearing the most. It read, “I regret to inform you of the program’s decision not to pursue your application further.” These words translate much more simply to “rejection.”
      For a moment I felt like I couldn’t breathe. I knew that I would be receiving rejections throughout the cycle, but had hoped and prayed it wouldn’t be from this school. Not only was this program one of my top choices, but it is also the only school in my home city. The realization that I would not have the opportunity to interview hit me like a ton of bricks. With GPAs well above the program’s average and my state residency giving me a leg up over other applicants, I felt that I would likely secure an interview. I was wrong.
      After the news, I began to question my application strategy entirely. I chose to apply more intentionally to a handful of carefully selected programs landing on the lower side of things - 6. As the September 1st deadline for many programs was only a few days away I sent my GRE scores off to an additional school that I was going back and forth on, hoping that they would arrive on time. I was relieved to have everything complete with one other program, but I still questioned if 7 would be enough to land me an acceptance or even an interview.
      At this point I was doubting myself, my personal statement, my clinical experiences… everything. I wondered if there were red flags in my application or if I said the wrong things in the answers to the supplemental questions. I tried to stay optimistic, but I was disappointed and feeling insecure. My first rejection was certainly humbling, planting seeds of doubt that were becoming overwhelming.
      And then I saw it. I was eating my lunch and scanning my email when I suddenly read “Invitation to Interview” in the subject line of an email from my top choice. My heart started racing and my palms were sweating. After seeing the date provided, only 3.5 weeks away, I could barely focus enough to read about the interview details. I was ecstatic. Their initial email contained a typo and in a follow up email with a correction the admissions director revealed that I was the very first applicant to be offered an interview. I couldn’t believe it. This school was my reach, and I certainly wasn’t counting on being offered an interview, let alone the first one. I was over the moon.
      Here I am now, in the midst of the cycle with one interview scheduled and one rejection. Things are still up in the air, but I feel that I am at least back in the game. The ups and downs of this roller coaster ride will continue, and I couldn't be happier. Thus far, this process has been unpredictable. Although I have heard this repeated many times here by those wiser than myself, this experience has definitely shown me that there is no such thing as a sure thing when applying to PA school. Don’t be so quick to count yourself in, but also don’t count yourself out.

      I was wondering how many people have applied to the USD and did any one hear from them.

      Hi everyone! I hope everyone's doing well during the application process. I have a question regarding adding new experiences. I recently added shadowing and research experience to my application but I have already submitted my application in the end of June. Will the schools be able to see the update when they review my application or will they see whatever I had sent in by the time of the upload? Thanks!

      Hi all, I just had a quick question and wanted to see if anyone had experience with this. I got my CASPA in and verified in later may and still havent heard back from schools yet. I thought this was just par for the course but when checking in on the forums for certain schools it seems that if these schools are already beginning to send out interview invitations and I have not heard anything yet. Does this mean that I am probably going to get rejected? Im just worried because some of the people who were invited for interviews had their applications verified and submitted after mine which makes me think I am a no go. Does anyone have any experience with this and maybe they are just going out of order? Thanks so much!

      What's up guys! I'm confused as to which cycle I should be applying to for CASPA. But before that, here's a little background info on me 
      Cumulative GPA: 3.9 
      Cumulative sGPA: 3.7
      Volunteer Hours: 300 hours
      PT Technician: 800 hours 
      Research Assistant: 300 hours 
      I'm going to be a 3rd year in undergrad once Fall rolls around of 2018, and I'm hoping to attend PA school in the Fall of 2020. Any thoughts on which cycle I should be applying for?
