Just curious if anyone who submitted after July 1 has heard anything yet? Thanks!

Verified July 10, but no response so far. According to past posts, they send out rejections pretty late. Ugh the wait...😭.

I was verified around the same time and haven’t heard anything either. I think the second round of interviews is this week. I’m not really anticipating anything for another week or two because of that? Maybe they haven’t looked into things much more until after the first 2 rounds of interviews are done? Not sure

I decided to apply and was verified today. I hope it's not too late. Do you guys think I should have bothered? I know they've only had two rounds of interviews it looks like, so hopefully they will consider my application. Good luck to those who have interviewed as well as those waiting!

Has anyone heard back yet?? I was verified 7/12... sort of freaking out 😳

I was verified around the same time and the only communication I have received was a confirmation email a few days after verification!

I just rescinded my acceptance, so hopefully that opens up the slot for someone else! My sincerest wishes for those still waiting- good luck!

Would you mind sharing some of your stats? Still waiting to hear, and am interested to hear a little about what they value in order to offer an interview.

I was confirmed on 7/5 and haven't heard anything yet. I am a second time applicant to Drexel, last year I was confirmed on 7/20 and rejected on 9/11 😬

Does anyone know how many rounds of interviews they will still do? I applied mid July and haven't heard back, I wonder how many interviews dates do they still have open?

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure they go until they're full, so it depends on how many spots they fill from previous interviews.

I don't know if my application was somewhat competitive enough to hang onto last year, or if they took *a LONG time to review it,* but I was confirmed in mid August and didn't get a rejection until, like, January.  So when I tell people it could be a long waiting game, I'm not kidding 😆

Ahhhhh long wait, thanks for letting me know, and good luck this year if you are also applying this round!

Hey everyone, 

Anyone know if there is an accepted students page on facebook or other social media platforms? I am over-zealously, and possibly prematurely, trying to look for a roommate. Also, if anyone else is in the same boat, feel free to reach out to me. Thanks!

      Hey Guys, my name is Benjamin. I work in Neurosurgery. I’m a PA-C. I received over 25 interviews when I was applying to schools. If you are getting interviews but not acceptances I would love to help. Check out www.physicianassistantschooladvice.org it lays out some good ideas to help get you that edge. 
      cheers,
      Benjamin

      Hello. As of today I have only applied to one PA school program (Rutgers) but unfortunately I got denied. I decided not to apply to any other schools this cycle as I have not started my senior year yet and am missing some of the prerequisite courses for many programs. I am currently working as a Medical Scribe and have been doing this for about one year now with about 750 hours. I also volunteered at a food pantry but only completed about 50 hours doing so. My science GPA is 3.32 and my cumulative GPA of 3.62.  I am planning to complete my senior year and continue working to build up more hours and reapply next cycle with a stronger application but I am worried that my experience as a scribe may not be enough. Do you think I should search for something else to do other than scribing to expand my resume?  I won’t have much time to do so during the school year as I will be busy with school work and working about twice a week so I might have to quit my current job if I do so. I am scribing a PA in family medicine and am scared to leave as I feel this is a very good experience and what I want to do in the future.

      So I live in Tucson Arizona and my fiancé and I just bought a house from his father. I originally was going to be a Clinical Psychologist but the median salary to PhD/PsyD debt ratio is atrocious. I was speaking with a former mentor and internship director now friend who told me that I would be better suited to being a Physician Assistant and that therapy doesn’t seem to have professional fulfillment (based on my experience as a group cbt facilitator.) He is totally right, I believe that therapy is an immensely helpful tool in treating behavioral health conditions, I just don’t think I should be the one to provide said therapy.
      My point is that Tucson does not have a school with a PA program. The ones in Arizona are all Northern or Central Arizona and I don’t think I could make living in Tucson and commuting work (the nearest school is a appx 6 hour round trip.) So I am not sure what my options are or if I can do this at all especially considering I only have 300 pce as a CNA and one prereq done (Gen Stats and Psych Stats.) I have been doing research and I really like the idea of being a Psych PA. I thought about the Yale Online program but as it stands I don’t think I’d be a competitive applicant and I live too far from Mesa, Glendale or Flagstaff. Would it be possible to do a post bacc to fulfill pre-reqs and boost my 2.9 GPA and get more PCE in order to apply to the Yale Online Program? I feel like banking on one school isn’t a wise idea?
