Hi all, 

Congrats to everyone who has been interviewed, accepted, waitlisted and everyone still waiting to interview!

I also Interviewed on Oct 25th and have been waitlisted, thankful and hopeful that it eventually turns in to an acceptance call too! 

Thinking of everyone in the same position and hope that we all have the opportunity to attend a program like this one in the near future!

I received my rejection email today (it was very kindly and tactfully written, I must say), so it appears they've at least begun with the final steps of the process.

Congrats to all of you that have interviewed and received acceptance or been waitlisted, and also to those that were qualified but weren't able to be offered an interview. The email said that they had a record number of candidates this year, so their decision-making process must've been difficult (I don't envy their position with having to thoroughly vet all those applications and choose who to interview and who to pass on).

Best wishes to everyone for success on your individual PA path! 😊

just received my rejection email today as well. My email mentioned my application was strong. Did anyone received the same email stating their application was strong too?

I also received the exact same email. It's a templated email merge, so the only thing that would change is the greeting with your name.

My email had the same exact wording, plus eight numbered suggestions to strengthen my application for next year, if desired. Excellent school/program, and a classy reply to provide soft let-down and encourage reapplication next year for those that weren't enrolled in a program this year.

Thanks! I didn't interview at Augsburg, but I work often with several alumni that are very well qualified and adept in the field (hence my comments about Augsburg's high quality).

I fortunately had an interview at a school out of state that really fits with my goals (e.g. students work with the community right away in the first year) - still waiting to hear from them on their decision. Everything will work out with time and patience. 😊

Best wishes to you and all the other candidates!

Hi everyone, 

I also received the same email. I applied five schools, so far I have only  one waitlist, which indicates my chance is very minimal to be accepted this cycle.  I'm wondering if we can create a group and work together for the next cycle. Now we have a lot of experience we can share and guide each other. Let me know if you are interested. I wish you all all the best 🥰

I also would like to say congratulation  who are accepted this cycle.

I haven't received an interview or a rejection notification yet. I see people here have received rejections who have both interviewed and not interviewed. I guess I should take this as good, right?

Interviewed on 9/26 and was notified I made the alternate list 3 days later. Haven't gotten a rejection or acceptance yet.  Has anyone been accepted off of the alternate list?

I also haven’t gotten an interview or a rejection. I emailed today this is what I got: 

 

We have completed two rounds of in-person Interview Days.  We may or may not have a third interview day after the first of the year.
 
Your application has been reviewed by our admissions committee and your candidacy is still under consideration.
 
 
 
so no rejection is good! I wonder if they have their class full and are waiting to see if people opt out of their acceptance and then they will send out more interviews? Can’t tell the strategy here. Just hoping for good news! Hope this helps others still waiting

Hey everyone, sorry I fell off the grid for a while! I offered to make a facebook group a while back but haven't gotten around to it just yet. Before I do so, do we know if anyone else has made one? I don't want to make a duplicate.

I don't believe so. Just looked up on fb again and didn't see any.

Just checked in to ask that, there doesn't seem to be any.

Hi! I'm interested!

Should I DM you to share our contact info?

Alright everyone I finally made the facebook group! I've made it private so only those accepted are approved to join. To ensure it's only those accepted, should I include "security" questions people need to pass to get into the group? And if so, any ideas on what questions to ask? I was thinking something along the lines of "who emailed you your offer of acceptance into the PA program?".

      Good luck to everyone applying this year!

      I didn't want to hijack another thread so I'm starting a new topic here. Just wanted some opinions on Minneapolis neighborhoods? Are there any that should definitely be avoided, or any that you find particularly charming? I'd be willing to commute probably 25 mins max to Augsburg, but obviously would prefer closer. Thanks for any thoughts in advance!

      Do any current, past, or prospective students have any advice or reasoning to advocate for one of the 3 MN schools over the others? I have been accepted to Augsburg, interviewed at St.Kate's, and will interview at Bethel next week. I would love to know what makes each program unique and more reasoning to choose one over the other if given the option. Thanks in advance!

      The deadline for applications was moved up 1 month to August 1st, compared to September 1st in years past. Does anyone know if Augsburg is planning to start interviews in September instead of October?
