Did anyone apply around January? I just found out that they accept Junior students, so I applied a week ago. I was wondering what are my chances of getting in. 

You have a chance. So many applicants have already been interviewed and if they fill before you got an interview there's your answer but they do typically interview all the way into June if they feel they haven't found the students they are looking for. I was told from the admissions dept. that they wont settle unless they have exhausted all possible resources. I don't know your stats and experience etc. but if you are a upper echelon student with great experience your chances will be much greater even compared to those who had applied when CASPA first opened. Hope this helps sorry for the wordiness.

I got an email on Jan 2 saying they have received my verified application and they will do a preliminary review and credit evaluation of your application. I haven't heard back since...

Yea you are in the preliminary phase so you are good. After they review they will decided whether you've earned an interview. It takes a while. They interview into May and make final decisions June 1st.

Hi, 

I interviewed on Jan 29 Manhattan. I received an email yesterday saying thank you for interviewing and currently reviewing all applicants etc. Is this similar to the email you received after interview?

I just submitted my application for Bayshore yesterday. Anybody know how long until, or if, they typically send out an email acknowledging receipt of the application?

Hi!

I did not receive the email after the interview rather a few weeks later. 

Hope this helps.

I was just accepted to the program as well, but am not yet 100 % sure I will be attending as I am considering this and another program! Was nice to be accepted 6 days from when I interviewed whereas last cycle they took 6 months to give me an answer and I didn’t get in lol. The interview process (since this was my second year interviewing here) is very straightforward and almost 100 % identical to the previous years interview format. Write a short essay and answer a 10 question quiz, a presentation by the program director, and then a 15-25 min interview with 2 faculty members. They just asked me what I have done healthcare experience wise, what I like to do for fun, and why I chose their program. All pretty common questions for all PA interviews (I have been through over 10 pa program interviews between this year and last year by this point)

Thank you and good luck! It seems obvious that what got me in this year versus last year was just increased healthcare experience hours and maybe I just interviewed better? Hadn’t taken any additional courses academically. Around 1000 total hours experience wise between being a medical scribe, hospital volunteer, EMT, and physical therapy aide. I had a cumulative 3.63 GPA and a bachelors in biology from stony brook.

Thanks & good luck - I feel like people don't do a good job on this page of indicating which campus they're talking about.

      I wanted to know if anyone could add any input on this; 
      I had requested a PA for a letter of evaluation. He was happy to agree to give one. I also had sent him a copy of my resume just because I thought that was the appropriate thing to do. 
      last week at work him had mentioned two things... he had brought it up to me that I didn't have my GPA posted on my resume and asked if if I was planning to put it on my resume. he also started asking me things like "do you want me to just not address GPA at all then?". So, for the copy of the resume I had sent to her, I didn't put my GPA in because I didn't think it was going to be helpful (my undergrad is a 3.35 which is not competitive) The whole purpose of sending him a 1 page resume was so that he could know a little more of what I have done in undergrad; like, have a little more amount of information of who I am outside of scribing. (I've been a scribe for about 9 months; about 5 of those months have been heavily involved with this particular PA, so although we haven't had many conversations personally its not like I am a stranger to him 
      The other thing that he requested is if I had personal statement finished. I will sincerely admit, I am quite behind on the application process as my personal statement still has work to do; I told him it's still being written. He asked if she should have a summary of it or something like that so he has more details to flesh out his evaluation letter. 
      I told her I would email her about the GPA issue and the personal statement summary because he was asking out loud in front of the other doctors and employees in the nurses station and I was a little shy to answer. I don't know why, but I wasn't expecting him to ask those questions.
      So here is what I was asking: 
      1. Should I have 3.35 on my resume at all? (I was a public health major)
      2. Is giving a personal statement/summary super necessary for you LOR evaluators? Because I really have alot more to do on my PS so I'm not sure how I can make a good summary in a short amount of time to give him; as well as the other evaluators.

      Hello! I thought I would create a new group discussion since the upcoming cycle will be opening in about 2 months. This will give an opportunity for anyone to ask questions early in the application process and hopefully all the way through the interview process.

      Hello! I know this post is stereotypical and repetitive and I apologize, but feedback would be very appreciative 🙂 Stats are below, should I apply this cycle? Or wait till next year? I’m currently on my first gap year. 
       
      cGPA: 3.7, sGPA 3.6 bio major with minirs in psych and chem, in 3 national honor societies (psych, bio, chem), academic award in my major, Dean’s list every semester
       
      Presented original research at 2 colleges
       
      By mid march I will have about 1000 PCE hours as an EMT
       
      I also started a per diem HCE job as a patient sitter in the ED. 
       
      GRE is between 295-299 (can’t remember exact number), thinking of retaking
       
      If it helps, during college I have about 120 hours as a volunteer crew member for my school’s EMS unit
       
      If I’m forgetting something, let me know! Again thanks so much, I know how annoying these posts can be sometimes and I appreciate you taking the time to read this 🙂 have an awesome day!

      Hi everyone!
       
      My name is Rachel and I am an upcoming PA student starting in May 2019 at USF's PA program in Tampa, Fl.
      I got my clinical experience first working as an EMT for an ambulance company, but later switching to being a medical assistant for a private practice dermatology experience in Plant City, FL (about 30 min from Tampa). I gained such valuable knowledge from both jobs! I currently still work for the derm practice, but will be leaving when I attend PA school. I just wanted to reach out to the pre-PA community because I'm sure there are a number of you who are looking to get clinical experience, and I wanted to see about giving the opportunity to someone who could gain valuable experience from this position. and FYI you do not need a medical license for this job, they do on the job training. I work here with the doctor as well as the PA. 
       
      If you're interested, let me know and I'm happy to answer any questions and put you in contact with my office manager. :)
      Rachel
