Congrats and good luck to all those who got interviews!!

Does anybody know if there will there be another round of interviews? I haven't got an invite, denial or waitlist response yet.

From reading prior applications cycles, it seems they may in fact invite more people down the line. I imagine this is tied to folks turning down interviews, cancelling, etc. I wonder if we get an email if we are wait listed or whatnot. I personally did not get an invite or any other form of communication from them.

Hey everyone, 

Congrats on receiving an interview! 

My interview date is 10/29 and I'll be traveling from the East Bay area. I can't wait to me you all ?

Also, does anyone know their acceptance rate?

Is anyone else concerned about the cost of tuition for the program? It's $130,000 for a 2 year program! Also, have you all reviewed the PANCE pass rate of 90%? In 2016 the rate was 67%. Kind of shocking in comparison to more consistent high pass rates for other programs.

Hi guys! 

I’m new on the forum and can not be more enthusiastic for being invited to a interview on the 18th! In previous years there was a informal meet and greet but this year I don’t think there will be one. So I was thinking maybe we should set up a time to meet up for our dates! Like some of you I would love to meet up and get my pre jitters out before our interview day! I’m not sure how, but maybe we can just meet up around 7pm on the 17th close to campus at Starbucks or another coffee place! Let me know!

Thanks,

M

Reading from prior forums some people received scholarships! So I’m thinking that there are definitely financial options.

I will also be interviewing 10/15!

My stats aren’t great, and this is my first year applying so I’m really shocked I was chosen for an interview! 

Gpa: 3.03

Scribe hours: 1,140

Shadowing hours: 50

volunteer hours (underserved community): 540

From reading the vision and mission statements, the school is big on diversity, which I think helped me out a lot! If you would like to know more go ahead and ask away. I can’t wait to meet some of you very soon!

Question: From reading past forums, I see that there were meet and greets the night prior to the visit day... will that still be happening this year?

Congrats on the interview! When did you submit your application. And did the interview invite come today? My stats are similar to yours so I’m hoping I’ll hear back ?

Thank you! I submitted my application on May 14th but wasn’t verified until June 4th after my last evaluation was received. I received the invite Friday around 5pm but just looked at this forum this morning. I hope you hear back too! ??

Those stats are impressive so I wouldn’t worry! Mine are in between the “higher” and “lower” individuals and I have not heard anything either so you’re not alone ??‍♀️

You are amazing! Don’t let this bring you down, there’s still time! Is Davis your top choice? Is this your first year applying?

Thank you for those kind words. Trying to maintain hope. I seemed to have applied a bit late. Davis is not my top choice, but I'd be grateful to get accepted anywhere I applied. This is in fact my first time applying.

I'm on the same boat same as well! First time applying and waiting to hear a response. Fingers crossed for all of us waiting for a response!

I received a confirmation email on 7/19. My stats are very similar to Mbueno95 with 7000 PCE as Medical Assistant so I'm still hoping for an interview invite, gotten 4 rejections so far ?

I feel ya! My stats are also similar and I’ve been a medical assistant for 6 years. I haven’t received any interview yet either ?

@StephanieHampton and @prepameg don’t let it discourage you, I was denied to every other school I applied to! I honestly think my personal statement helped me out.

Hello All,

BCP GPA 3.7 and B.A. GPA 3.5  

I took the Organic Chemistry series and Physics 

Roughly 10,000 plus hours of combined PCE and HCE hours

Volunteering mostly within school districts and tutoring.
