I'm hoping my story will resonate with some of you who are dealing with the possibility of reapplying next year. First of all, don't throw in the towel yet. There are most likely more invites to go ou

Has anyone confirmed if they are still sending out acceptances? Also, is there anyone out there that have been placed on the waitlist this cycle? Thanks and good luck! 

We’re still waiting to find out since it hasn’t been 10 days yet for those that have received initial acceptances...

I can confirm the program sent all 80 offers out on Tuesday. I called and asked.

Got it. Thanks for that. So pretty much all 80 seats are accounted for and the only way they are going to accept more people is if the already accepted decline seats? But If that’s the case, shouldn’t there be people on the waitlist already? 

The waitlist isn’t official yet until after the 10 day mark...

Yes. They will continue to extend acceptance offers until all 80 seats are secured with a deposit. Once they are, then they release the official waitlist. A rejection can come at anytime during this process.

To those who didn’t make it, keep applying and cast a wide net. You may be disappointed now, but in the end you may find something better for yourself. EVMS allows decent opportunities, but I’ve been surprised and disappointed at times by the discrepancy between what was initially presented to me and the actual reality of the EVMS PA program. Furthermore, there are also major changes to the program curriculum coming up, so it’s unclear how those changes will impact everything. This isn’t meant to dissuade you from reapplying (or even change the minds of those who are thinking of accepting). These are just things that I wish someone told me before coming here. In the end your education within medicine has much more to do with personal effort than what school you attend. Regardless of where you attend PA school, if you put in the personal effort you will do very well. Trust me, if I can do well, you can too! In my opinion, the willpower to keep pushing yourself through any failure will be an important skill that will carry you through school and your future career as a PA. Raw talent and brilliance on the other hand are no guarantee to success. Good luck to all and congratulations on those who made it to the next step!

^Brand new account, 1st post, from a "student" subtly criticizing EVMS right after initial acceptances go out and people are waiting to see if spots open up from people declining their offer...while all the current students on the facebook page and in real life have nothing but great things to say about the school...not suspicious at all, nope...

I have seen students of programs come on here to share their truth and experiences anonymously out of fear of backlash. I’ve also seen students come on here to discredit those experiences to maintain a prestige image of their program.  I appreciate it because it gives a balanced perspective. No program is without flaw. Them giving their perspective will help those accepted to have realistic expectations walking in and those waiting to hear to not focus so much on a possible rejection from ONE school. Let’s not discredit someone’s experiences and invalid the balanced perspective they shared. Some of us want the truth, the good, bad, and ugly about a program especially since the education cost so much !

Maybe I'm just an old fogey but I have a higher bar for trusting anonymous profiles on the internet. Vague insinuations that the program didn't meet all of their expectations without knowing anything else about them or with anything to confirm they are indeed a student doesn't seem very helpful and the timing is a little weird. I'd rather talk to a current student in person or one with a confirmed identity online. Several made themselves available from the meetups to this forum if you are truly interested.

Out of a class of 80 we saw a handful of students make themselves available. Maybe the ones who did not were busy or not interested in “selling” the program. If you don’t trust the feedback, then understandable. But in my opinion I don’t think it was necessary for you to come on here to discredit a individual who might actually be a student shedding some light. Excruciating details weren’t necessary for us to gather what was implied and to be honest it would of been in bad taste. All in all this should be a forum where people can share freely whatever they choose respectfully without feeling discredited.

I would hope that fake accounts would be discredited. As much as I'd love to live in a world where everyone was who they say they are on the internet, I'm afraid I've seen time and time again that's not always the case. Sorry if you took offense to me reminding people to remain skeptical of anonymous anecdotes. I too want this to continue to be a place where people can share freely whatever they choose, but open discussion includes some criticism and even some stepping on toes now and then.

How do you know the accounts fake just because it’s a new account ? You’re making a lot of assumptions. Criticism is welcomed but to attack someone’s credibility because they share a less favorable opinion, not so. No offense here. Just protecting this space for people to post and hide their identity if they so choose because of fear they will receive blacklash.

Here's the thing, there are people in the class that are unhappy with the way things are run. There's ALWAYS going to be people that are unhappy, there's no way to please everyone. There's always going to be good things about a program and there will always be bad things as well. I have several friends in other PA programs across the country and they have similar complaints. No program is perfect. I'm in c/o 2021 and I am pleased with my decision to attend EVMS. Yes, they may be making changes in the future but it's only to benefit the future students. The faculty is incredibly mindful making the curriculum and making things connect. 

I'm not too sure if @1234PA1994 is actually in my class or not, but either way, they are entitled to their own opinion and maybe that's their take on how the program is going. At the end of the day we're going to make it out as PAs and will have a good education to back it up. Congrats to all of those that have been accepted and good luck to those reapplying and those waiting to hear back!

Thank you! Finally the truth - everybody is not happy and guess what - it’s A OKAY! Some of y’all a bit too much! Smh.

No, I didn't receive an email, but I interviewed Friday morning and from reading the previous forums in this chat... a bunch of people have already started receiving acceptance emails. I contacted admissions and they said that they are still in the process of sending out acceptance emails. Basically what that means is whoever hasn't received a an email yet is accepted but is on the wait list for a seat. The people that have already received an email have 10 days from the day that they have received it to accept or decline their seat. When they decline it, then they remove someone off of the wait list. They said there are a lot of people on the wait list and will not tell us where we are on the list. Does anyone know how many people actually ended up interviewing? There were a couple that did not show up to my Friday morning interview.
