I was not invited to interview at UAB but I have a  3.9 gpa

                                3.85 science gpa

                               304 GRE 

                              ~300 contact hours

Does anyone have any advice as to why I wouldnt have been invited or if there’s anything I can do at this point?

I have learned not to compare stats because everyone has their own story and background that may have set them apart, but it could be your patient care hours. I think the mean on the website is listed at 3,446 patient care hours. The spreadsheet that shows all of the averages  is all on the admissions page ? hope this helps!

I know that if you send them an email and ask why and what to improve on they usually reply with the answers to your question. Hope that helps.

I just received an email that interviews have been extended and we will receive postal mail letting us know if we have an interview or what we need to improve on. 

Did you reach out to someone via email to find this out?

If I haven't heard from the school (email or snail mail) does that mean I am out of the running?

At the interview on Tuesday, I was under the impression that all interviews have been completed and we will begin finding out our admission decisions in about two weeks. So I am not sure if you are referring to an interview invite or admission decision, but that should answer your questions ?

Anyone have any info on how they will notify those who have been accepted. I know they said it will take about two weeks from the interviews. Will Mr. Drace be making phone calls again, will it be emails, or will they send out letters in the mail?

I'd expect a call from Drace.

Usually they'll send an email or formal letter after the phone call.

Does anybody know if they have called all of their acceptances so far? I interviewed November 1st and am waiting to hear back. 

I just emailed Mrs Glasscock and she said no, the process will last a couple of weeks.
