2018-2019 Application Cycle

Recommended Posts

Make sure when you apply that you have a 3.4 cGPA or above or you won't get an interview. Their website says that you need a minimum of 3.2 cGPA, but don't tell you that they only look at 3.4 and above.

@aceface Thank you for the vital information! Did you apply last year and find this out? 

Yup. I just wanted to save some money for anyone who is applying that has a cGPA/sGPA below 3.4. They say that since it's so competitive applying to PA school, they only offered interviews for 3.4+. I don't have a problem with getting denied, I have a problem with getting false information through their website/phone about having a minimum of 3.2. Could've saved time and money.

Wow that is such a bummer! I am sorry that happened to you, but that is so awesome that you are trying to save us some $$. I hope everything goes well for you this application cycle!

I emailed the school about why I wasn't offered an interview last year. Their reply was that since PA school is so competitive, they only looked at s/cGPA's of 3.4 and above. They also said GPA may go up next year since it is becoming even more competitive.

So they made a decision. But you can't see it till you log in to their website. But there's no way to make an account and they don't give you login id/password for a existing account.

Congrats! I just got an email but it won't let me login. It says the account does not exist. How did you view yours?

Yes, I'm having the same issue. Anyone who was able to login, would you mind explaining how to do so? Thanks so much!
