Post Application Follow Up

Recommended Posts

So I submitted my application about 2 months ago. I am wondering what type of follow up others are doing while waiting to hear back from programs? Is there a way besides the verified status in CASPA to double check that schools have received and or viewed your application?

There is no way to tell.. you can always email the programs to see if your verified application had been received if they have not sent an email stating they received your application. All the schools I applied to sent an email but some were a couple months later after submission. 

Hope this helps

I sent emails asking if everything checked out and was received and that I did not slip through the cracks.  Usually quick responses there from most schools.  There was one program that said not to even ask if all materials were verified, so I did not send one there.

      Hi all, new here! Thanks in advance for the help! 
      I'm under the impression that you aren't supposed to include experience that you received academic credit for in the experience section. If that is the case, why is there a "received academic credit" option to select for experiences?
      From my previous healthcare degree, I did a number of internships and a residency program that I received academic credit for but on my transcript, it just says "internship hours" or "practicum hours" and provides no detail about the experience.
      Can I list the details of the experiences (as they were electives and unique to me rather than my academic program) and check the "received academic credit" box?
      For example, I elected to do an internship in a hospital in China and an integrative medicine residency program at a US hospital, I was credited "hours" from my graduate program, but there is no mention of the experiences on the transcripts. If I don't list them under experience, neither will be visible on my application. Do I just talk about them in my personal statement? What would you do in this situation?
      In general, I feel like I could use some guidance navigating CASPA with my unusual background (I have a Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) and am lacking access to an advisor . Any recommended resources? 
      THANK YOU!!

      CASPA failed to process my application before the deadline of October 1. They apparently had an issue processing the COVID—19 Transcript Delay Form. I checked in both through phone and email, and still, they failed to verify prior to the deadline. I submitted all material July. 
      has anyone else had this issue?

      I am a PA student in my didactic year and I would like to help out pre-PA's in anyway I can. 
      I know the CASPA has long opened, but if you need advice for next application cycle, or would like me to look over your CASPA application I would be happy too. I am willing to look over your personal statement as well and give back some extensive feedback for a small fee. I am a full time student struggling with loans. I would be happy to review your personal statement for $25. I can get it back to you in 4 weeks or less. For CASPA reviews, I can do it for $10 or both for $30. 
      Some stats about me: 
      Applied twice, first cycle I received 2 interviews, one waitlisted and one rejected. 
      Second cycle I received 3 interviews, 1 accepted and 2 waitlists.
      Science GPA: 3.2
      Overall GPA: 3.6
      PCE Hours: 2000+ 
      I majored in Biology with a minor in Spanish. 
      Thank you and good luck!

      Hey Guys, my name is Benjamin. I work in Neurosurgery. I’m a PA-C. I received over 25 interviews when I was applying to schools. If you are getting interviews but not acceptances I would love to help. Check out www.physicianassistantschooladvice.org it lays out some good ideas to help get you that edge. 
      cheers,
      Benjamin

      I feel like I'm seeing more and more current college students and recent grads on here, knowing that they want to pursue PA right out of the gate (which is awesome!)
      I'm curious what the breakdown is of pre-PA folks here who are pursuing a career pivot to PA vs those who are pursuing PA as their first career (or whose PCE/HCE job was chosen specifically to meet PA school requirements)? 
      (I've been a certified athletic trainer for 7 years and have had my sights set on PA for about 4 years --  had to spruce up the ol' GPA prior to applying -- this year is my first application cycle! I've absolutely loved being and ATC, and plan to keep my certification active as a PA, but have reached the point where I really want to be able to do more for my patients. I know, cliche... but true.)
