I was invited to an interview yesterday for later this month on the 24th. I do not believe it is too late for anyone who is considering applying! I submitted my application mid-December! Good luck everyone! Also, if anyone (or as a group) want to grab coffee the day before on the 23rd and get to know one another l would be interested! 🙂 

I also have an interview the 24th! I would love to meet up, it would definitely make the process less stressful by getting to know some people before hand 🙂

Hello,

What made you feel like you weren't a strong candidate?

I don't have much patient care or shadowing experience. I haven't even shadowed a PA when I submitted my application. Since submitting my application I've gotten a job as a research assistant where I work with PAs, MDs, and such. But initially, I didn't know if I had enough experience to receive an interview. I submitted an application with fingers crossed.

I kind of feel the opposite. I’ve been waiting since July to get an interview. My application has been reviewed but not picked for another round of viewing by faculty. Which means I’m not out, but in a holding pattern. I have above the minimum required classes and about 1200 PCHours. I’ve received 2 interviews other places but am really interested in this program. Maybe my 296 on the GRE is holding me back. I have no idea.

How do you know it was reviewed but not picked for viewing?

Does this program have a strong preference towards in-state applicants?

It’s a private program, so no in state preference. I’m out of state and  I was accepted as were several others in my interview group.

I had to reschedule my interview from 1/24 to 2/14. I hope that helps one of you out! See everyone at the 2/14 interview! Good luck everyone!

Congratulations to everyone getting interview invites to South College- Nashville. To those getting interviews or getting accepted, do you mind posting your stats and when you submitted your complete application? Thank you so much in advance.

Hey this actually helped me out a lot I was invited to interview for 2/14, however due to a church missions trip to Puerto Rico leaving that same day I was going to have to push my interview (last resort) but was able to take your spot. So thank you very much I hope you have a great interview in February. Happy preparing.

Hi, I was just invited for interview on 1/10 for the 2/14 date. I have since moved that date to 1/24 however here are my stats. I also struggled in Chemistry getting C's in 1 & 2 

CASPA and Supplemental application submitted on 10/15 however I sent over my GRE scores on 12/30 which rendered my application complete for South college. 

GPA 3.52     PCE 10,000+ as Army Combat Medic

sGPA 3.24    GRE 297    Shadowing hours 80

I also struggled in Chemistry getting C's in 1 & 2, not really my strong suit as you can see

Some Advice, all I can say is don't get discouraged I was nervous from the silence but the invites will come.

I’m kind of in the same boat. I applied in August and had the same review email, but since I’ve been waiting so long I feel it was an out rather than holding?

How should I get in contact with the admissions office to get the status of my application? I know the generic email they send out says reply to that, but the email is a do not reply address.

2,000+ PCE as FMF Navy Reserve Corpsman

100 recent Shadowing Hours of PAs and MD

B.S. and M.B.A in Business Administration

I was recently accepted to another program and let South College know today that I will not be making the interview this Friday, 2/14. I am hoping someone else is called and asked to come interview. Good luck to you all!

I submitted last week of July and haven't heard anything either. Trying to stay positive since they interview until March or April I have read.
