I received a call from Dr. Wright on Monday (interviewed 9/29); still doesn't feel real to me!  Good luck to everyone who has upcoming interviews or is waiting to hear back! I know they said

Hope everyone had a good time at the Saturday interview and found the experience useful. Best of luck to all of you! I do want to comment on one thing, however. We had 11 no-shows (out of 60 inte

Has anyone been invited for the November 3rd interview yet?

I don't think so from what I have read. Seems like there is 4 set interview dates in the fall-winter, the dates are posted online. Doesn't look like we will be hearing back for awhile, August/early September at the earliest. I could be mistaken, though.

Got an email saying my app is under review.. interviews are held typically on  saturdays from September through December. 

when did you submit to CASPA? I have yet to get that confirmation email from the school and I submitted the app late May.

Is this rolling admissions once you interview or do they not fill seats until all interviews are completed?

They fill a small portion after each interview but majority of class is chosen after the four interviews are completed. I applied late and got an interview so I definitely wouldn’t call their method rolling.

Out of state applicant here! I just submitted my application for GW 2-year program. Hope it’s not too late!

Same here! I don't think it's too late at all, especially considering they don't do rolling admissions. Best of luck!

I was emailing back and forth with an adcom officer and she informed me that they DO NOT utilize rolling admissions so it's best to wait until everything is ready to go on our ends to hit the submit button. Hope this helps! 

Are you sure they're rolling admissions? Because they have an interview date scheduled for September 29th, but October 1st is their deadline to submit CASPA

It is not rolling admissions. As noted above after each interview date a small amount of people will be offered spots, but the majority of the class is chosen in December/January after all the interviews are completed.

For what it's worth I submitted on September 30th, 2015 and  I'm a PA-C now.

Hi Karishma, 

Thank you for taking the time to answer questions! I wondered if you could speak about your first year experience. What classes and lectures are like, if there are opportunities to practice skills in a clinical setting during the first year and what you’ve found to be the best way to retain all that you are learning along the way. Any insight you can offer would be appreciated,  I’m just curious what the first year is like. 

Thank you! 

 Anne

Hello guys! I am a late applicant as well, CASPA app completed on Aug 27th, waiting for verification... Does anyone know how high priority is given to GRE scores? I spoke to an admissions' representative and was told that they are not looking for any specific numbers. Many other programs have actually specified what numbers they are looking for, so I am wondering...

      Hey y'all so I am a sophomore in undergrad and in the process of just starting to get PCE, shadow, and volunteer hours and etc, but I am super stressed out because I am itching to start getting PCE hours except its so difficult while in school. I was thinking about becoming an EMT and working for 2 years after I graduate but I wasn't sure if being an EMT is considered PCE among most colleges, does anyone know? (I also tried to work as a caregiver over summer and that job isn't for me) 
       
      Also, I'm trying to compile a list of PA schools to apply to, so if anyone has any recommendations for schools on the east coast please let me know! 🙂

      Hi there, my name is Vanessa and I just graduated with my bachelor's in February. I am looking to pursue into a PA program but not quite sure where to start. I am currently studying for the GRE and have about 250 internship hours done at an ENT clinic with an audiologist. I'm not sure in what I am doing and need any guidance or suggestion in what to do.

      Hi!
      I'm new to this forum and desperately need the help of people who has knowledge of what it takes to become a PA! I'm a current undergrad student, a sophomore majoring in Global Public Health with a possible minor in Biology. I'm on the road to obtaining all my prerequisites, but I'm really struggling with the patient care experience hours needed. Most schools I'm viewing need 1,000 plus hours which seems insane to me. I feel like most of the jobs acceptable for direct patient care contact are things that need even more schooling, such as an MA or EMT. I've applied many places to become a Medical Scribe, or PT Aide but haven't heard back. Am I doomed to take a gap year after I get my bachelor's? I don't know how to get the needed experience without prior experience. I wrote on all my applications I'm open to complete volunteer work but still nothing. 
      Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

      I'm looking into PA school requirements and have seen that most require Human Anatomy & lab, and Human Physiology & lab. My current university (UCSD) only offers a Human Physiology lecture course. Most of the city colleges I'm looking into in order to fulfill this pre-req only offer Human Anatomy or Human Physiology as a single course of lecture and lab, rather than having separate lecture and lab courses. Do PA schools accept lecture & lab combination courses or do they want each lecture and lab to be a separate course?
