Has anyone applied to this developing school and have received any interviews yet? Is it a good idea to apply to developing schools which have not received accreditation and what are the chances that this school will receive accreditation?

I am applying to this school. If what EMEDPA is true, then I won't need to worry about it being accredited or not. I am looking forward to this as I've always wanted to be part of something that is "new" and show how great that "new" thing can be (with objective points of course). Anyways, good luck if you're applying. They don't have many FAQs so it's hard to determine what they are looking for but it appears to be a holistic approach for right now!

I applied to this program and did not hear anything back. I called them today and they said my app is under review and might hear from them late next week. They said they have had interviews already but will have more.

Congrats! Did they mention if they will hold anymore interviews? Anything about their accreditation status?

Unfortunately we are not liberty to provide the exact stuff as it would lessen our chances. But overall it was relaxed and welcoming. Very friendly but I will let you know to become prepared and really be yourself. Not shy or reserved or feel like you have to be too professional

How did your interview go? Did they mention if there will be any more interview dates? And anything about their accreditation status?

I interviewed on the 8th and they were all very welcoming and excited about the new program! They were very confident about their accreditation and from their last inspection they said everything is going well and moving towards them receiving accreditation in March. We were told that as of the 8th, they have filled 20 out of the 25 seats and we haven't heard back yet from our interview either. They said they would have another interview session if they did not fill the remaining seats from the January 8th session.

Hi everyone! I was accepted to this program, and will need to move to the area. There are several really nice town-homes and apartments near by. While I could live alone, it would be awesome to have someone in a similar situation as a roommate!
