I know they said everyone will get letters that will go out next week and those admitted will get phone calls. Do you think they’ll call today?? 

They said phone calls?  They just told us letters and said we could hear next week.

Yeah, I’m sure they will call the ones they accept and also send acceptance/denial/waitlist letters as well. The students who gave us the tours said that they got phone calls (each were called by a different faculty member) as well as acceptance letters in the mail.

So they told us decisions will be made today. All letters will be mailed out next week regarding your decision and the admitted people will get a phone call. Everyone just doesn’t know if the phone call could happen today or not!

I think they meet today to make decisions since all interviews were this week. The latest we will hear back by May 1st but they specifically said they're anticipating letting us know within the next few weeks..I'm guessing we will hear back next week or so.

Hey all! I want to give it back and I’m willing to do free mock interviews for whoever wants to practice! I’m no professional but I do know what works and doesn’t work as I actually did a mock interview! Please message me for mock interviews and any help that is needed with CASPA apps, personal statements, etc.

Hey everyone! I just called Elizabeth (anonymously) and asked if all calls had been made. She said she could not give that information out but what she can tell me is all calls will be made by May 1st and all letters will be mailed by the end of next week. Hope that helps some of you....the suspense is still awful!

      Hey all!
      With COVID-19 being ever so present during this application cycle, it seems a lot of schools are holding interviews via Zoom or some other virtual format. Does anyone have any tips/advice for interviewing virtually? Pros and cons?
      Just trying to prepare myself for this new normal. Thanks in advance!

      Hi all, can someone please tell me my chances of being invited to an interview or give me suggestions as to what I should do to improve my application? I would really appreciate any input. I’m applying next cycle (2021-2022) thank you in advance!
      Btw I calculated it the way caspa would using ThePAPlatform gpa calculator. 
       
      cGPA: 3:77
      sGPA: 3.3
      ~1400 hrs as a CNA
      ~200 hrs as a behavior therapist (it was cut short due to COVID and I have to move back home hours away)
      I just got offered a job at the front desk at the chiropractic office I’m getting treated at (I recently got in a car accident and couldn’t get my old job back as a CNA) but this would count as HCE! I could potentially do this from May until late Sept and work ~24hrs/week.

      - Vice President of my pre-pa club, and was an intern for this club before getting accepted to this position. 

      - I also plan to rack up more hours once I move back to my university 
      Any feedback is appreciated, thank you!

      Hi all,
      Summary:
      Has anyone had success reapplying to schools after a mediocre interview? Does the interview rejection hurt my reapplication more than if they'd never interviewed me?
      Details:
      I was granted an interview at a couple programs this cycle and got waitlisted at one, rejected from the other. I love the program I was rejected from and - pending a miracle on that waitlist - I was thinking of reapplying next cycle.
      I wouldn't say I botched the interview; it just wasn't great overall, and I definitely would take a mulligan on one of the questions. But with my lower academic measurables I think I needed to do exceptionally well to get over the top. 
      I'm taking more classes, shadowing more, writing a new personal essay, etc. And working on my interview skills. I do plan on asking the program for specific feedback but haven't done so yet (I just have their generic, "congrats on getting an interview, but try again" rejection email for the moment).
      I'd be extremely grateful to any admissions professionals or faculty willing to weigh in (if any see this).
      Thanks in advance!

      Hi all!
      I just received an email that I was being extended an interview that was about 3 weeks out from the current date.
      I responded around 4 hours after I received the email to accept the interview, but I received an email a couple hours later that they were going to have to reschedule and that “they would email me when another date opens up”. 
      Has this happened to anyone else??
      Should I be worried? Or do they send out more interview invites than spots that they have open for the day because they know that some people may decline? 
      Thanks!

      I was wondering if anyone had every considered sending handwritten letters of appreciation after an interview? If so, to whom did you address and send? If not that's totally understandable, I just wasn't sure what the consensus was out in the world. Thank you so much!!
