Anybody know how many students they are interviewing? And is tomorrow the only interview date? Thanks in advance, and see y'all tomorrow! ?

They interview 70 students for 40 seats total. Online they said 10 seats are earmarked for their undergrad student who are pre-PA. I interviewed and was the 2nd group of the day. There were about 16 people in my group.

HI ? I am a current UEPA student! If you guys have any questions let me know! The interview is a true MMI. Just be yourself and follow the prompts and you will do great! 

Hi Sam, I wanted to ask how prepared do you think the program is preparing you for the PANCE? I know there isn't a graduating class yet to get the program PANCE scores, but can you speak to what the program does to help students prepare for the PANCE? and what type of support is offered for students who struggle with a course? (i.e. medical imaging).  Thanks!

Based on what I read/understood from the programs website, the baccalaureate to PA studies pathway wont be implemented until 2021, but I could be wrong

I indeed was accepted! Can't wait to meet y'all! 

Guessing if we didn't hear anything we probably didn't get accepted. They seem to be the type of school that does everything at the same time (for example everyone interviewed on the same day). Congratulations to those who got accepted!

I don't know- sometimes they just roll them out. God only knows why. But don't give up just yet!!

Hopefully that’s no the case. Since Billie’s email said they would be sending them out over the next day or so maybe that means they’re sending them out in groups? Or at the very least I hope there is a waitlist and not just flat out denial. Fingers crossed for us all waiting to hear back and congrats to those who already have heard back!

I received my acceptance this afternoon.  And yes, the first email really got me too, so I know it's hard not to stress!  But even if nothing comes in the next day or so, please keep in mind that out of 40 seats there is a good chance that some may choose to go elsewhere (to their first pick).

There is a waitlist, and their intent is to fill 40 seats in the next three months.  Dr. Roscoe shared (with regret) that an earlier class had a withdrawal one day before classes started... and the next person in line had to race in from out of town.  That's why they want potential students to either accept or decline ASAP,  so they can invite the next person in line.

      Hello everyone,
      I am new to this site and I would really appreciate if I can receive advice. I have an undergraduate GPA of 3.045 right now this is prior to my spring semester grades being placed in and I project my GPA to raise but I guess not much since I will mostly have A's and B's. I am also graduating in December so I have one more semester. What makes me nervous is that Yale requires prereq's that I don't have yet (Micro, A&P I AND II, and Biochem) but I have the statistics portion. Luckily, Yale doesn't require any labs for the prereq's. Yale's minimum GPA req is a 2.8 however, CASPA hasn't calculated my GPA yet and based on what I've heard a CASPA gpa is way lower than your transcript gpa and I want to be competitive. 
      Not to mention that I am a psychology major which is already not the usual biology/chem. My major (science undergraduate) is a 3.5. 
      My plans were this summer to take these classes at a community college while completing classes towards finishing my degree at my usual university. The reason for this is due to COVID-19 and my school deciding to continue remote learning via ZOOM. My university doesn't have the best science professors from what I heard and what I seen (taking chem which I got an A in). I figured community college whose curriculum is already set up as online would be much easier for me to pick u in and CHEAPER of course. I say all of this to ask if it makes since to put myself through all of this in the summer if I may not get an interview based on the fact that my regular GPA is 3.0 and even if I take all of these classes and receieve a 4.0 I doubt my CASPA gpa will be raised by that much.
      My PCE (Paid) is 2000.

      I worked as a PRN rehab technician for about 3 months (roughly 20 hours a week) before I became Full-Time (40 hours a week).  How do I record this change in hours? Do I make two separate entries or average the hours per week?  My hours for PRN also varied each week, with weeks working up to 30 hours and sometimes only 15 hours. Do I need to record this somehow? I also do not understand how PA schools validate that the numbers of hours stated are honest. Is there some sort of validation document needed from each employer from past jobs.  Any advice is appreciated, thank you!

      Hey guys,
      I'm currently considering applying next year and was wondering if anyone could share their stats for getting into nova or any other school in florida, especially how many pce hours, since they don't seem to require it but I'm not sure how many most applicants have.

      Hey guys, 
      I will be applying to PA school this cycle and I was talking to an admissions counselor at the PA school I am interested in going (in my home town) about my academic record/healthcare experience and how I can be a more competitive applicant. In conclusion, she recommended I re-take Gen Chem II cause I got a D the first time I took it. Some background on me is that I have a cGPA of 3.1 and I knew that wasn't competitive enough for PA school and decided to get a Master's in Science which I got a cGPA of 3.5 with a sGPA of 3.6. I figured that since I took a lot of upper level chemistry and biochem courses in grad school it would counteract my D in gen chem II. However, they don't factor in grad grades with the undergrad pre-req grades which I should've known and feel stupid that I don't so I am looking at retaking gen chem over the summer before Aug 1. Other areas of my app are very strong with a good enough GRE, over 2,500 healthcare hours and other volunteer experience. This is literally my last battle and any advice would be amazing! 
       
      SO she recommended I take Gen Chem II online at UNE (University of New England) and she said I;d be able to finish that in 8 weeks. I absolutely hated GC II and I really need to pull off an A. I've never experienced taking an online class through UNE...if any of you guys have had any experience and how hard you think it would be to pull off an A that would be greatly appreciated!!
