To clarify what paramedic09 said....This is from the website... "All qualifying applications will be scored and individuals who meet the predetermined threshold will be invited for interviews." So once youve met their required GPA/GRE/etc, then the apps are scored through their scoring system, and selected to interview. Goodluck to everyone applying! Cant wait to meet everyone on the July 24 interview:)

 

Lol yeah, the clarification was necessary. Paramedic09 made it seem like everyone qualified gets an interview and that's definitely not true. I applied here last year and got rejected. Applied again and improved things on my app and got an interview.

Yes, thank you for clarifying. That is what I ment, but when I re-read my post I saw how very unclear I was.  So thanks for clarifying for me.

I recommend everyone that gets a rejection letter to follow up though, because I received one and emailed back the next day and this week Lailah emailed me and said whoever reviewed my application did not do so closely, and I was given an interview invitation that same day.

Thanks for clarifying on the rolling admissions. Of all ten schools I applied to this one was the most vague on that and really didn't say the words "rolling admissions" anywhere like all other schools. Glad I caught it when I did.

How did the interview go for those that interviewed this week?

 

Also, how long did you guys have to wait between getting the email that said you had an interview and the email with the interview dates? I've been waiting a week and still dont have my intweview dates, so I plan to email them today and ask about it.

Hey y'all! I'm in town now preparing for the interview tomorrow and Tuesday. Woo hoo! Anyone wanna meet up before the program starts tomorrow?

Also, they said in the email that for tomorrow (Monday), "business casual attire is acceptable." Anyone have any idea if girls usually wear full-blown pant suits/skirt suits for this day, or if it was actually more business casual? Let me know please, and thank you!

Definitely more business casual. Tuesday you should wear your pants/skirt suit. I wore dress pants and a shirt with short heels for the first day.

Hello everyone!

I received an email invitation for an interview on July 27th. The email detailed that I would be receiving another email in the near future detailing the date, time, and other logistical items. Anyone else on a similar timeline? 

A good friend of mine interviewed July 23rd and said she really enjoyed the atmosphere that the school seems to foster. I am really excited to see what UCPAP has to offer!

Good luck to everyone!

I'll be interviewing on Aug. 29th-30th. I'm flying in from pretty far so I'm looking at staying the 28th & 29th - let me know if anyone would be interested in grabbing dinner or something one night. You don't get as much out of a city exploring alone! 

Good luck all ?

would it be too late to submit to this school? Seems like most people already have interview dates/or have interviewed. 

The deadline has already passed!
