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I just rescinded my acceptance, so hopefully that opens up the slot for someone else!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 😆

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!

      Hi everyone, so I am very thankful as a third applicant I have now been accepted into two amazing PA programs. ATSU (mesa, AZ) and Boston University (Boston, MA). However, I am having a very hard time choosing between the two and would love advice from current students, alumni, practicing PAs. Basically the community. ATSU Pros: Tuition~104k  I thoroughly enjoyed the interview process and liked the staff Affiliated with  Community Health Centers for safteynet clinical experiences, does community stuff during didactic as well 7 week core clinical 6 week rotations 1 elective 6 week rotation Offers PACKRAT end of clinicals  Offered a body soul mind course which I found really unique and different compared to programs Cheaper cost of living Established in 1996 Have a few MDs and 15 PA-C on faculty staff (I feel to make up for bigger class size) Cons: A bit longer/expensive in flight and distance from my homestate Florida so not as easy for family to visit/vise versa (ideally if I can) PANCE is only at 94% pass rate (I feel this is a little low but I could be wrong) Concerned of rural site clinical rotations expenses adding up to cost of Boston (estimating 2k per rotation) 26 months starts later in July Completely isolated and alone, no nearby support system Overview: 14 month didactic, 12 months clinical. 70 student class size. Cheaper tuition and cost of living. I'm used to heat being from Florida. learning-centered education and seems more concerned with whole person healthcare with an emphasis on underserved populations. The program seemed deeply committed to fulfilling this mission. No thesis needed.  Boston: Pros: People seem to be telling me that BU has an esteemed reputation so it would theoretically open more doors for me (but I have read where you attend doesn't weigh much) 56 weeks of clinical rotations, +10 specialties, and then 5 additional elective clerkships in sub-specialties. Affiliations with major NE area hospitals such as Boston medical center, The clinical phase is 16 months in length and is comprised of 14 clinical clerkships and two months dedicated to thesis preparation. PANCE pass rate I believe is100% online but in the interview, they said 98.6% I have a friend currently in BU residency and family close by in Massachusettes  Starts in April and is 28 months long Class size: 30 students Lots of case-based studies, journal clubs, and we learn alongside 2nd-year medical students during the didactic for pathogenesis.  Faculty seems very esteemed and imbedded in their fields in comparison Cons: 124k total not including living or personal expenses  Much higher cost of living relatively new established in 2013 and was on probation last year but is now accredited until 2028. I found the interview...not as enjoyable or able to connect with the staff compared to ATSU interview Faculty is 2 MDs and 4 PA-C Overview: 12 month didactic, 14 in clinical, and 2 in research. 30 student class size, evidence-based, patient-centered care. Seems more traditional in teachings.

      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.
