Hi! Decided to get this thread started! ? 

I submitted my application on 5/17 & I think I was verified 5/18! 

I haven’t heard anything back concerning confirmation of my application. Has anyone else?

good luck this cycle, everyone! ?

Submitted 6/5, verified 6/8. Also waiting to hear a confirmation email or something. Have either of y'all called their program to make sure your app is complete? I've never applied to this program, so I know know when/if they send a confirmation email of some sort.

I was told after emailing the graduate college that if your CASPA application is verified and your GRE scores have been sent, then you don't have anything to worry about. They are working on updating applications. Also, I checked the self service center today for my graduate application, and it finally says that my CASPA app and GRE scores have been received and my application is "under review by program."

Hello All!

I'm glad I found this thread! I'm almost done with the CASPA application but would anyone know if UTRGV has any additional essays other than the one on the CASPA app?  Even the UTRGV Graduate application was void of any essays.  Your advice is greatly appreciated!

Hi @Mantonio85, UTRGV also has a separate application through their website. Here is the link! It is completely separate from CASPA. I was verified on 6/8 and just learned of this separate supplemental ? because I did not get any sort of correspondence from the program about them even receiving my CASPA. My fault for not checking their website thoroughly, but still very frustrating. Hoping this won't affect me too much! 

There are no additional essays on the supplemental (this is normal for most of the schools in Texas). It's mainly a residency questionnaire and $50 fee.

Hey guys, 

I rechecked the website too to make sure everything that was needed was sent and on the self-appraisal checklist, it says "Original transcripts sent to UTRGV Graduate Office by Sept. 1st" which is separate from "original transcripts sent to CASPA by Sept.1st" 

Just letting yall know.

Hey there @abc2018, I double checked the admission criteria section of their website and also found this:

"You must submit your required documents including transcripts to CASPA. The Graduate College staff will retrieve your documents from CASPA including: transcripts, personal statement, letters of recommendation, resume, and completion of prerequisite coursework.

NOTE: Students who are admitted to the PA program will be required to have official transcripts sent to UTRGV after notification of admission which usually occurs in Mid-Spring."

Although you are right, it's only after one is accepted that original transcripts must be submitted.

Yeah, I only sent transcripts to CASPA and my application has been under review for a couple of weeks now!

Just received an email saying that my application will be further reviewed for interview consideration! CASPA verified May 17th and I can't find the email of when I submitted my supplemental app but very shortly after I was verified.

For those just receiving the further review email. I received the same email on June 14 and still haven't heard back from them yet. Patience is key in this game...

Good luck everyone!

Hello everyone!

Have you guys been going to the Open Houses?  There has been a lot of good information, I have gone to 3 of them already and wish I could go to this last one coming up on the 18th but I won't be able to, going out of town.

Oh no! You just made me very nervous because I didn't receive an such email and I submitted mine in July.

I declined my interview invite since I have already accepted an offer elsewhere. Hopefully, this opens up a spot for someone else. Good luck everyone!
