When does the interview cycle generally end?

Recommended Posts

When do schools with October/November deadlines typically stop giving out interviews? I'm waiting to hear back from some schools and have been rejected from a few already. I just want to know whether getting my hopes up is a bad idea or not.

Application deadlines don't dictate when interview offers start or end.

What matters is when the last interview date is for each program.  Some are done interviewing by December.  Some have interviews into Feb/March.  That's what you need to go by.

I'm just not sure whether to give up yet on this cycle. Any idea when Yale stops interviewing? I just got rejected from one of my top schools

From the looks of it, 11/8 seems to be Yale's last interview session, it was 11/15 last year. This is on campus though, online is most likely different. Check out individual school sub-forums for a general idea.

I wouldn't say you should give up on this cycle. Like has been said above, interviews can run into the new year depending on where you applied. That being said it is a smart idea to think about a backup plan in case you aren't accepted this year. What can you do to improve your application now, or has it already improved? The last thing you want to do is cling onto the hope of getting in until Feb/March and then only have a month or so to improve your application for next cycle, if that makes sense.

Browse through each individual school's forum. If interviews have already been sent out for people who applied after you, then I am sorry to say that you've probably been passed over. Or, it's possible you applied too late. When did you submit your applications?

They would have rejected me if they passed me over, but I'm not sure how accurate this website is in general since it is a forum. I haven't heard anything yet.

Not everything on here is 100% accurate.  I can tell you for sure at UF, a few that applied after me received interview invites before receiving mine.  Even a co-worker of mine applied 2 weeks after and received his 2nd level review before I did.  So don't lose hope yet.

      Hey everyone! I'm a pre-PA student in Atlanta currently working as a medical scribe. I'm interested in working for undeserved communities and would love to get some clinical experience in the area. Do y'all have any recommendations? Thanks in advance!

      Planning to apply to Baylor, UT-San Antonio, and UTMB-Galveston by September. While I do not have direct patient care experience yet, I hope to be hired on for a position soon so I can put on the app that experience will be acquired before enrolled in PA school. I have two positions that I'm interviewing for next week: phlebotomist (3 months paid training included) or tissue recovery technician, which involves removing tissue from donors for transplantation. The hours for the technician position are ideal for my situation right now (nanny). Being a phlebotomist means I will have to drop everything I have going on. Will the technician position be considered novel in any way? Or even be considered direct patient care (this will be mostly with cadavers)? Or should I just go with the safe bet and throw away any semblance of a life I have before PA school?

      Selling both Andrew Rodican books, both paperback. "The Ultimate Guide to getting into Physician Assistant School"- 3rd edition. Lightly used/great condition. Only one highlighted section (see photos). "How to Ace the Physician Assistant School Interview"- lightly used. A few highlighted sections, most being pencil. Doesn't interfere with future use of the book. Selling both for $30+shipping to respective area. Books sell for full price for about $30 each on Amazon for new. I would like to sell both at once versus splitting the set.
      I have them listed on the Facebook marketplace (see link below). You can message me there or here on the forum.

      Has anyone received/had an interview at MSJ?

      Hello! For those of you that have applied before or are already in PA school, is there anything that I can do after my applications have been sent in to help my chances? My CASPA application was verified on 6/29, and I have received emails from all of the schools I applied to saying my application is under review, followed by when they will start contacting people for interviews, but is there anything I can do in the meantime besides just sit and wait?
