Hi everyone! 

I also received great news from Dr. Wright today! As one who got an invite just days before the interview, I’m still in shock and so thrilled for this opportunity  

To those still waiting, keep thinking positively. At the end of the interview day 12/1, she did mention this time of year is busy with finals, so they could get back to you any time before Christmas! And always remember, there’s a waitlist!

I haven’t yet and am worried that this may mean I was rejected if Dec 1st people have already heard back 😔

I interviewed on 10/20 and haven't heard back yet. They said they would get to everyone before Christmas so maybe they are slowly starting to call people? ( at least thats what im hoping for)

Has anyone recently gotten an acceptance for the MPH/PA dual program?

I interviewed on 12/1 for the dual program and am anxiously waiting for my decision.

I'm disappointed to hear about the no-shows. We all know how difficult and competitive the process is and it's very disrespectful to be a no-show and deny others the opportunity to interview. I didn't hear anything after I submitted my application. I knew it was a bit of a long shot this year but I'd rather ask and be declined than assume the answer's no! I look forward to applying again next year. My application is still marked "under review" in the portal and I'm assuming it will change status after they send letters and close the cycle. Does anyone know if there's an opportunity for feedback to strengthen my application for next year?

Has anyone received their official offer of admission via email? I interviewed on 12/1, and I am fortunate enough to receive an early acceptance. But aside from the congratulatory phone call and email from Dr. Wright, there has not been any further follow up. Just making sure everything is on track - thanks!

After I received the call from Dr. Wright, I logged onto my portal and there was a decision letter that I clicked on to officially accept their offer of admission. After I did that, I received an official letter of acceptance through the portal and then instructions via email on how to submit my deposit, claim my NetID, etc. PM me if you have any other questions and congratulations!

Hi there - I interviewed on the first interview day and received acceptance to the dual program 12/3 via email; no phone call. After clicking through, I received a letter like @Victory1322 and one in the mail. Although, I did end up declining the offer.

Does anyone know if any more acceptances are going out? I feel like so many people got their acceptances already. I still haven’t heard back yet (interviewed Nov. 3rd) and am wondering if this may mean that I was rejected

I was wondering the same thing. I don't see anywhere else to navigate to, though. It just says the application is under review.

I sent an email about this situation to Allison Hardy and the PA Department. If I get a response, I’ll let everyone know! 

I called them today and was told that Allison was out of the office. She’ll be back tomorrow though so hopefully we’ll hear something then!

      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. :)

      I am a Biology/Pre-PA major Junior in college. I am in ROTC and participate in many extracurricular within ROTC, so I am ranked well. I am looking for advice on my chances for getting into PA school. I don't have many preferences for a PA school, my life dream has just always been to save lives within the medical field. At the time of applying for PA school I will have a 3.1-3.3 GPA, around 1000 hours as an ED medical scribe, and I worked as a pharmacy technician for a year. 
      Most of my credibility outside of my GPA is ROTC which takes up a decent chunk of time which I am hoping will say something for my application. I have yet to take the GRE but plan on doing well since I will need the extra buff. I also attended basic camp and advanced camp if that helps my application at all.
      What are my chances for getting into PA school and is there any advice that I can be given for my future success in the medical field. Thank you.
      Very Respectfully,
      Nick

      Hey everyone, I wanted to get some advice and input from people that have applied/been accepted/are already in PA school. So over the course of the past two months I was invited to interview at three different schools and recently have found out that I was rejected at all of them. I have about 1,500 hours as a CNA at an assisted living facility, 1,500 hours doing direct care with mentally/physically disabled adults, and just started working at a hospital as a nurses aide about two months ago. My GPAs are: 
      -Last 60 credits: 4.0
      -cGPA: 3.91
      -science GPA: 3.97
      -I also have a 4.0 in every pre-requisite that each school required.
      My GRE scores for both sections were a little bit above average, and I got a 4.5 on the writing portion. Not going to lie, I thought I would get into at least two of the three with my GPA, or even waitlisted. I honestly didn't expect to be straight up rejected from all three. I do feel that each of the interviews went fairly well and I answered all of my questions thoroughly. I even had some conversation with the interviewers and felt very comfortable after all of them were complete. I honestly do not know what went wrong and what I can improve at this point. If anyone can give me any advice I would greatly appreciate it.

      Hi I was wondering if anyone ever took the Masters in Medical Science program from UNTHSC before applying for PA school?
      It's a 1 rigorous program.
      I am interested in applying for it to possibly strengthen my application, but I would love some insight from anyone who had taken it too.
