Are you supposed to get a confirmation email after you send them RSVP for the interview?

No confirmation email, I didn't get one when I confirmed.

Never mind.  Just double checked.  I did receive a confirmation.

Sorry, another silly question for anyone that have look into the program tuition/cost. I was comparing programs costs and for some reason several websites showed that UTRGV cost around $68,000 comparing to other programs which cost around $29,000-35,000. Any idea why UTRGV is so expensive? It’s not a private institution

This breaks down actual costs: https://www.utrgv.edu/pa/_files/documents/pa-costofattending 2017-2018.pdf

The $68,000 might be the total cost of attending which includes room and board and all additional costs. Most schools just show the tuition cost which is much less. If you look at only tuition on that chart, it costs around $20,000 for a resident. Hope that helps!

Hey Everyone!

Does anyone know how interviews will be conducted? I am still waiting for one! But does anyone know the format of the interview, group interview, face-to-face interview, or multiple mini interview style?

Thanks much appreciated.

Could anyone suggest a reasonable priced hotel that is somewhere near the school? Will be driving in Thursday from south Louisiana for an interview Friday afternoon! Any help would be appreciated ☺️

Hey guys,

I'm a current first year in the program. Congrats to those who've interviewed and been accepted. It's a rigorous, but great program taught by instructors with diverse backgrounds and years of experience. Everyone's approachable and truly wants to see you succeed. Let me know if y'all have any questions and I'll try to answer to the best of my abilities.

**I can't answer any questions about the interview process or style since they don't tell us and they seem to change the style every year**

I also have an interview this Friday! I’m flying in on Thursday from Virginia and I’m staying at the Best Western. I think I paid like 80 bucks for the night? Not too bad.
