Hey guys! I noticed there wasn't a post about the upcoming application cycle. I wanted to create a post so we could discuss and answer questions for each other. I think making this post will allow us to create connections and encourage each other, so we can all achieve one goal-- getting into PA school! Leave any comments here!

What is the format that they prefer for the Resume /CV? In their CASPA they say they want the # of hours: Should I just add that number under descriptions for Patient Care Jobs? And did they want a number of hours for volunteering also in the Resume/CV...?

Add the number of hours by the description of the job. You do not have to put the number of hours for volunteering

On CASPA under documents, there is an area at the very bottom of the page for us to upload a document named shadowing/ healthcare hours. Does anyone know what we need to upload here or if we need to upload anything?

That’s optional, you don’t have to upload anything

Some schools require proof for the shadowing that you did. UDM doesn’t require it, but you can upload it if you have it

No one received interview invites right? I had heard that someone received one, but I thought this school was not doing rolling admission so I was confused.

Hi! First time applicant at UDM. Received an email from the program saying that my app has been received and ready for review. I’m starting to get nervous, anyone else on the same boat?

The waiting game can be nerve-wracking!

Hi Guys!

I am a current PA student at UDM, I applied last year and I'm now on my 2nd semester. I am here if you guys have any questions (I meant to jump on here earlier but, well, here I am now). 

Last year I got my call for the interview on February 13th, and had my interview on Feb 27th I think. Then got the acceptance call on March 27th! (long, long wait!)

Hang in there, try to focus your mind on something else, because the waiting game is horrible!

Good luck everyone!

Hi, thank you for offering to answer questions! They said that they will send interview invites in March, do you think it's possible to send them earlier than March? I hate waiting lol. Also, what do you think set you apart from many applicants? How was your interview experience like & how many interviews do they usually send out?

When I was pasting my UDM essay for their supplemental on CASPA, it wasn't showing spaces in between the paragraphs I have pasted. Did this happen to anyone else? I hope it's not a big deal 😫

Hi everyone! I am a first time PA applicant and I recently received an e-mail saying my requirements were all met and that UDM will be reaching out in the second and third weeks of March to extend invitations to interview. Good luck to everyone 😁

      Hi everyone!
      I'll be applying this cycle to PA school. I wanted to create this post so we could discuss and answer any questions or concerns. Hopefully, this post will allow us to create connections and help each other out.
