Yes we are over 2000 applicants and are inundated right now, so patience is being requested.  We cannot send out confirmation emails and have not offered interviews yet.  There is no delay it is a pro

Calls will be made late next week

Got an interview invitation today for November 21st! So excited! Submitted and verified early june 🙂

Thats really early. Good job!  Mine was verified 6/24 and supplemental 6/25. 

Thanks, yeah I was on it this year! I submitted most of the CASPA apps before 4/30. Good luck to you, keep me updated when you receive an interview!

Did anyone receive an email stating they have all the materials and that their application is under review? Or are they just skipping those to sending out interview invites?

I haven’t received anything from the program!

To those who were invited for interviews, how did they notify you? By email or phone call? I submitted my application on May 8th but haven’t heard anything heard yet, so I’m scared 😬 and good luck everyone! 

email always. I never got a confirmation, just an interview invite.

Do you guys mind sharing your stats. I'd like to know if I even have a shot 

cGPA 3.30

sGPA: 3.32

PCE: I applied with about 1500 at a patient care tech and still working full time

Volunteer: 500, ED volunteer, mission trip, make a wish foundation (my sororities philanthropy, did lots of events for them)

Lots of leadership, I was on the executive board of my university pre-PA club all 4 years, teaching assistant for biology, 150 hours shadowing 4 different PAs

5 LORs, 3 from PAs, 

and in my opinion an amazing personal statement. I never thought I'd get an interview because my GPA wasn't as competitive as others but its important to be a well rounded applicant!

 

Best of luck!

3.62 cgpa, 3.53 sgpa, 3000 hrs as a CNA, 70 hours shadowing MDs and PAs, 50 hours volunteering, 5 LOR 1 from PA, 1 MD. I can't stress enough how important the personal statement and writing essays portion is. It's really the make or break of an application and weighs so heavily. Many people with 4.0gpa will get overlooked if their PS is garbage. Its never too late to apply though, and its always worth a shot. For future reference I would apply as early as possible as it really does make a difference.

I would STRONGLY  disagree with this statement.  Personal statements are proofed by so many individuals they are not unique work of an applicant.  they are scored the LEAST in the process

How do you view supplemental application ? How are they scored when selecting candidates for the interview?
