TinaRocketfish, 

Just out of curiosity, did they send this to you because you missed the initial deadline?

That might be the case. I didn't submit the graduate application by the initial date because I was holding out for the supplemental. I received the supplemental Oct 29th and then the email posted on the 30th. I was given Nov 8th deadlines for both

For those of you living in the Wichita area.  What are your thoughts about the crime rate in the area, or where's the best place to live near campus?

 

The crime is relatively low in most of Wichita. There are areas to avoid though. Downtown apartments that are near the PA campus should be fairly safe but they are pretty expensive. You can find cheaper housing near WSU's main campus but it is less safe. I would figure out your budget and then search for an apartment in the downtown area. If you have a specific apartment in mind let me know and I could drive around the neighborhood to check it out. I have a friend that lives in Flats 324, and pays $700 a month. It's not on the safest street but the parking is gated and his apartment was nice. Several other med school students live there as well.

I definitely agree! I live in east Wichita right now and it's by far the safest I have ever felt. It is a more upscale apartment, but living with a roommate is cheaper than living on my own at a cheaper apartment so it works. I live about 10 minutes from campus and roughly 15/20 from downtown depending on traffic.

Also just got my email stating they received the supplemental application! This is so exciting and nerve wrecking!

When did you submit your supplemental? I'm curious if they are going through them in the order they are received? I didn't submit mine until the due date and I haven't received an email yet.

I haven't gotten the 'received' email either and submitted mine the day before the due date.

So, on the supplemental application it states that they will process your application once they receive your payment.  Then once you submit your payment it says they will contact you in 7-10 business days.  That was on the 4th so I'm anticipating something from them any day now.  bmarrufo95:  I didn't get an email stating that they received my supplemental either?  I guess we will wait and see soon.

I called to ask and they said they have a person going through and checking it all and sending the email so it could be a few days before it is received. They told me they had received everything for mine but just have to send the confirmation when they get to it. I still haven’t received it though. So I assume it takes awhile.

I got the email.  The waiting continues.  I'm not envious of the selection committees, they definitely have their work cut out for them.  I look forward to meeting some of you in December (if I get an interview invite)!  Good luck to all.

Heyy, has anyone else still not received the supplemental application and application fee confirmation email with the potential interview dates listed? Submitted mine on 11/7 and still haven't heard anything. Thanks!

Does anybody have an idea of when we should hear from them in December about an interview?

 

From what I saw on previous years threads it could be the first week of December up until Christmas break.

      Hello! Looking for PAs to shadow in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles County, and/or Ventura County areas! I have been looking around with little/no luck, and most of the PAs in my area seem to work at the local Kaiser, and I'm not sure how easy it would be to shadow their PAs. If anyone knows of any PAs that would be willing to let a student shadow them for a few days, I would appreciate their contact info! Thank you in advance, and good luck to all!

      Hello everyone! I did not see a thread for the applications for Gannon University in Erie, PA? Has anyone applied as a post-baccalaureate student? They do have a 5 year combined bachelor's and master's program but I believe they accept a few students besides their undergraduate class.

      My name is Tessa and I am currently an MA at a dermatology clinic. I am aspiring to be a PA and will be applying during the next cycle. I have worked along side PAs for about 2 years now in dermatology and have experience working in a level 1 ED. However, I am looking for any PA shadow opportunity in Arizona that is not dermatology as I want to branch out and have an understanding of what PAs do in different fields. I live in Glendale but I am willing to travel anywhere in Arizona.
      If you are a PA or know a PA or any open opportunities feel free to reach out to me on here. 
      Thank you!

      Hey all, 
      Been reading a lot about applicants who have taken a biology/health-science/etc. masters program in an effort to improve their GPA or to "show" PA schools that they can handle tough, upper level coursework. I was wondering what you'd consider the "cut-off" to be for when you should or should not pursue a masters? Anything less than 3.7? 3.6? 3.5? 3.4? 
      Quite frankly I've been considering this myself (I'd be happy to provide my stats). I know a lot of factors obviously go into a decision like this (trends, cGPA, sGPA, pre-reqGPA, HCE, shadowing, the application as a whole, etc.), but just kinda wondering what peoples inclinations are on this. 
      Thanks!
