After my interview last week, I received a letter in the mail today that I was completely denied... 😞 Do you think they would talk to me about it?

Congratulations to those waitlisted! We have a pretty solid handful of people in my class who were waitlisted, so definitely don't feel deterred by that.

 

@PANCE51, I am sorry to hear that. You could try reaching out to Alli Qualls and ask her for information.

When do they usually start calling off the waitlist? December? Earlier?

This is definitely a question for Alli, but she did say during one of the interviews that they have called people all the way into December.

Just as a heads up, the program discourages the sharing of admissions decisions on here. 

If you do have any questions, do not hesitate to e-mail Alli Qualls, or refer to the "What's Next?" document you received during the interview. I do not know any information regarding specific interviews or anything like that, I'm just here to answer general questions 🙂 

If you have any general stuff to ask like housing, hotels, dress code, etc., feel free to DM me directly!

Thanks!

I’m so excited for everyone on this thread! Congrats on each step of the way— you’re a hard worker and an awesome person and you deserve it!

I sadly only just learned about GWU in July and applied early August in good hopes and spirits, but I enjoy the awesome things and camaraderie I see on here! Good luck to all! I hope to hear back soon.

Don't stress it! One of my classmates applied right before the deadline and he's sitting right next to me 🙂

Hi Raquel! Thanks so much- that was so incredibly encouraging... and I just got an interview invite this afternoon!
I’m from out of state; which airport is the best to fly to: Charlotte?

I'm so glad to hear that! Congratulations - that is very exciting news!! 😁

I would recommend flying into Charlotte. I drove to NC in my own car, but the vast majority of interviewees and students I know of flew there instead of Greenville.

What should one expect in the GW interview? 🤐

It is a pretty laid-back environment. You'll be able to tour the amenities of the program (I recommend going and visiting Tucker Student Center while you're there!), ask questions to faculty and current students, and engage in an interview with the administration. Each interviewer's style may differ, but overall, the interview is intended to be a comfortable environment in which you can be 100% yourself 🙂

The school website mentions science aptitude under the selection tab, is this the same as science GPA? How does the program weight science GPA vs cumulative GPA?

Where the website mentions science aptitude, it usually refers to prereqs. I asked Alli and she sent me this webpage clarifying some of that. 

https://gardner-webb.edu/academic-programs-and-resources/colleges-and-schools/health-sciences/schools-and-departments/physician-assistant-studies/admissions/application-requirements/index

I do not know the specifics, as that is more on the administration side of things. I do know, however, that all GPAs are factored together into a prescreen score.

 

In my interview, I discussed GPAs. I mentioned a science Q-drop and a low science grade rather than one in a freshman english 101 class. I felt it was important to bring that up, since this is a science-heavy degree by nature. After discussing any weaknesses in my GPA, however, I was quick to explain how those experiences served as crucial, big learning moments about adaptability for me. I think it is nice to put something that can be an awkward, semi-negative conversation topic into a positive light. 😀

I mean I felt well. She did say they wouldn't know 100% until the second set of interviews.

      Didn't see a thread for the current application cycle. Please post link if there is already a topic. 
      I got an email on July 6th that my application has been received and was given an application status link. Has anyone gotten an interview?

      I am looking to shadow in the Raleigh Durham area ; been trying to send messages via linkedIn to multiple places, but to no avail. Does anyone on here know someone who is accepting pre-pa shadowing? Being a PT I would love to follow someone in Ortho or Pain Management, but I am happy to shadow any specialty ; there is something to learn in all settings!
