Hey guys!
 

So I applied July 18th, and got the "we are in receipt of your application email" on July 23rd. I also sent my GREs in on July 18th. 

 

I have not heard anything since. It has been exactly one month. I never have received "your application is complete and under review" email. Should I contact them tomorrow about this or do you think they are still processing since I applied mid-July? I don't think my email is the problem since I have heard back from other schools. 

 

Thanks!

I applied around the same time and haven’t heard anything new yet either. But if you do reach out I’d appreciate it if you let me know 🙂

I also received the same email on 7/23 and have yet to hear my app. has completed. If you reach out keep us updated! They may be just taking their time due to increased number of applications!

I received my "in receipt" email on 5/22 and "currently under review" email on 5/30. I applied early, so that might be the reason for the quick turnaround time.

Per the "in receipt" email, Barry used the "4-6 weeks" timeline. So, maybe give them another 2 weeks and then check in?

Hi everyone. My "receipt" email says allow for 8-10 weeks until the next email. With that being said I am going to hold off on contacting them for now since it has only been a month. They must have gotten a lot of apps so I do not think there is no need to worry (yet) 😉

For those that have gotten interview invites, would you mind sharing your GPA, etc? I am also waiting for another email from them.

I really liked this school but just finished my last prerequisite, do you think it is too late for me to apply with their admissions being rolling?

I submitted in June and haven’t heard yet so 🤷🏻‍♀️

 

Does anyone know if there is an open house soon? Or do they only do scheduled visits ? I did a scheduled visit like two months ago but want to go on campus again specifically for the PA program

I still havent heard anything yet either and my stats are slightly better than yours (sGPA and cGPA 3.3, more PCE, more shadowing and more volunteer hours) uggghhhh....lets not give up hope, they interview all through the fall so maybe we'll just be towards the end of their list 😞

Is anyone here not scared to admit that their GRE score is under a 300? I didn't quite make it to 300 and also applied to schools in California since they don't require the GRE, but am praying that I can stay here in my hometown. Luck to all!

My GRE was under 300😅 Not a great standardized test taker personally! I applied to a bunch in Cali as well which didn’t require a GRE and also Stony Brook which didn’t and already have an interview with them! Honestly, I’m not even that attracted at schools that would weed out students with excellent overall qualifications because of a low score on a general standardized exam. I mean, here they are training the future of healthcare and  they’re completely dismissing applicants who could potentially make a wonderful contribution to medicine, because of a low score on a GRE (which as everyone remembers, doesn’t even test on biological sciences or anything healthcare related!). Kind of concerning if this is how schools are determining future healthcare providers....Just my two cents!

Beautiful words love! God will take us far don't worry! I have been in the medical field for 15 years, and was even in medical school for one semester. I made the decision to withdraw because I had to leave to another state and left my children behind. I couldn't take the emotional burden!!! Being 40 years old, I had to teach myself high school math all over again in order to take the GRE! Awful I say! I stay positive & continue to have faith! I very much agree with you 🙂 Thank you for your response!
