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 your stats and any comments here!

Has anyone submitted their CASPA yet? I am on the verge of submitting just waiting for one letter and GRE scores to post.

Not yet! I’m submitting it at the end of July

Hey guys,

 

Just curious if anyone can provide me with some information either from experience or previous cycle forums.  I am applying to Eastern in hopes they go through the process quickly. I know the cycle for Eastern ends in September, but does anyone know when the interviews started, or when the offers were sent out for the next year? Thanks for any information.

Interviews begin in the Fall. Eastern offers 30 seats. You should still accept your seat at the other PA school

You were denied? Also, did you apply to any other Michigan schools?

Did you not meet their requirements? EMU does not look at the applications until after the deadline. You must have been automatically denied if you did not meet a requirement

To the best of my knowledge, I have met and/or exceeded all minimum requirements.

You should contact them and ask why then. Good luck!

Seconding you should contact them again. This part confuses me... Are you a MA? Scribe? I'm just confused about the quoted above because that's waaay too many hours to be just shadowing but you also said they were pt care hours.

 

They still haven't contacted me except the auto-email saying they've received my CASPA application

Hi every one!

I just got two emails from EMU, the first stating I've met the minimum requirements for the program, the second saying my grad application is complete. 

Hopefully I hear back from them again soon!

 

Good luck all!

Hi Everyone,

I received an e-mail that says I meet the requirements, and will be notified as to the status of my application before October 1st.

Best of luck to everyone. EMU is my top pick.

Hello everybody!

EMU alumni here and a first time applicant to the PA program!  I wanted to wish you all the best of luck and hope that the admissions process works in our favor!

I submitted my applications late June and had been verified by early July.  I had received confirmation that EMU had all documents on August 4th, and that I met the program requirements.  Still waiting to hear back from EMU, however we should all be getting feedback within the next few weeks (how exciting/nerve wracking)! 

Here are some of my stats:

  • CASPA GPA: 3.6
  • CASPA Science GPA: 3.51
  • GRE: Verbal-154 / Quantitative-150 / Analytical 4.0 / Composite: 304
  • Degree: Exercise Science, minors in Human biology and Human Nutrition.
  • Clinical experience: 1,200 Cardiac Rehab & Stress Testing,  8 PA shadow (ortho),  40 DO shadow (ER)
  • Certifications: NFPT-CPT, BLS, ACLS
  • LOR: 5 ( 2 professors, 1 DO, 1 Exercise Physiologist, & 1 Internship coordinator) 

If anybody has any questions about EMU or the area I would love to share what I know!
