Hey Everyone!

I hope I can get some input/advice from those who frequent this thread. I was fortunate to interview for the program on September 21st of last year and have yet to hear back at all, in any form. I know we were told to be patient and that there is a possibility that some of us may get an offer even the day before the program actually starts, but reading all the previous posts has me a little anxious. While some have gotten accepted, deferred, placed on the waitlist, gotten off the waitlist, I'm kind of in limbo - I've yet to hear back from UTRGV in any capacity.

Ultimately, I'm not sure what my next steps should be; continue to wait? Reach out to the program and inquire?

This waiting game has me seriously stressed out. Any and all advice/thoughts you may have is greatly appreciated.

🙂

Hello mantonio85, 

I completely understand how stressful the wait can be. Just keep your head up and keep on eye out for an email. I am a second year applicant to this program. Last year I did not hear back until March with a rejection letter. No matter the outcome, do not give up! Stay patient and optimistic.

@Mantonio85 Hi Mantonio! A friend of mine who got into the program also interviewed early but literally did not get accepted until about 1 month or a few weeks out before starting the program. I’m not sure how long it took for her to be put on the waitlist from her initial interview but I thought it was awesome how she got in and got to work right away. Anyway I hope all the best for you, it may not hurt to call and just ask sometimes things can get a little hectic at the office, especially since you are so anxious. 

I think someone on here also asked when exactly does the program start I believe it’s about early August b/c you have a 2 week orientation, then 1 week break/no school, then the fall semester begins. Either way if you have been accepted take the time to relax because once school begins it will be really hard to relax 🙂

By the way my name is Marlyn I just graduated from the program, currently waiting to here back about my PANCE score. If you guys have any questions let me know I’m not on here to often, I only checked to see what others had to say about the PANCE exam then found myself over here. If you want to contact me directly/quickly I’m on IG all the time lol @suturinginspanglish

Oh also I strongly encourage you to pleaseeee practice your Spanish it definitely helps make rotations a little easier and helps you connect with your patient population which is like 90% Hispanic, and about 60% of the elderly population doesn’t speak English (if anything I’m actually under calculating)

Sending everyone positive thoughts and vibes!!

Congratulations to everyone who has been accepted! I have classmates who heard back in April and May and one who got accepted a month before the program started (not common, but it happens) so don't lose hope if you haven't been accepted. I would be more than happy to answer any questions that anyone may have.  Feel free to send me a message if you'd prefer.

I have not received this information yet. Last I heard they would be emailing out an informational packet sometime in February.

I would contact Christopher Dennett to ask what all has been sent out!

I called an UTRGV graduate admission specialist. She said as long as we have all the documentation ready, we should receive the letter soon. They are still working in the letters for students starting graduate college for Spring 2019.

what do you mean paper work? 😕 what do we need to have ready?

I was accepted off the waitlist yesterday! I have declined my spot due to already being accepted and committed to attending another program. Best of luck to those still on the waitlist!

Has anyone that hasn't heard back emailed them to ask the status? I will likely send a email to Christopher tomorrow since the next cycle is almost opening

I emailed him last week and have had no response. I haven't had any contact from them since my interview so it's a little concerning. I assume they are waiting until their class is full to send out all rejections.

So strange, I interviewed at 6 schools this cycle and this is the only school I have not heard back from.  The other schools emailed me within 1-2 weeks after my interview.  I interviewed in October here and nothing

I also emailed him last week and haven’t heard anything. Hopefully we’ll hear back soon.
