For all those invited to the 10/31 interview, when did the program mark your app 'received'?

Same question for the November interview group if those invites have gone out yet...

I will be interviewing 10/31! They received my app on 8/26.

Welp, I'm a July baby with no offer, so ya'll probably won't be seeing me at Drexel next year. On the bright side, I have a couple interviews elsewhere.  Good luck to you and everyone else that's still in it!

According to their website, interviews run through February. I wouldn't give up hope just yet!

Received confirmation that my application is being processed on June 6th. 

Still have not heard anything else. 

Should I consider it a rejection??

So this is an assumption based on my experience last round, but from what I can tell the program keeps all of the apps they recieve open and on file until they officially fill every seat in the class. I didn't get an official rejection until their interviews closed in February. 

I'm in the same boat as you this round as well, so the only conclusion I can draw is that my application has [so far] rated lower than all the candidates they've reviewed and offered interviews to. So, we're still in it, technically. But being passed up for 2 or 3 interview rounds doesn't strike me as a good sign

last year they sent invites well into december.

Can anyone shed light on what makes Drexel unique? I tried to gather information from their website but it doesn’t offer much about their program besides the basics.

Just received an email that my application hs undergone an “initial review”, but all of the upcoming interview dates are full and they will contact me throughout the winter if an opportunity arises.

This was the first communication I’ve received since I submitted my app around 6/24!

I got the same email! Emailed back to find out if we’re on some formal waitlist for an interview

I got this email too. Last year I didn’t and was flat out denied so i think it’s basically a “hold” and to see how many people they end up accepting from their next few interviews!

Got my call yesterday, accepted from the 8/15 interview! It feels wrong to decline an offer from a top 10 program but I much preferred another program I was accepted into so I’ll be declining my seat for that one. Good luck, everyone!

I can't believe I am saying these words but I was accepted from the 10/03 interview!!

I want to thank everyone for sharing their stories good and bad throughout this process. I can't wait to start this journey with everyone and I am looking forward to meeting you all 🙂

      Hello,  my sgpa is 2.4 and I registered for organic chemistry 2 and phlebotomy part 1 next semester but I missed the FAFSA deadline so I would be paying for the class with a credit card. my new dilemma is this..  there's this technical school that offers phlebotomy for only a month and half at $2k but it doesn't count as credit which was the reason why I signed up for PHLEB at a CC(it can help my GPA). the current bill at CC with PHLEB and ORGO is around $2k but ill be missing part two of PHLEB which I can take during the summer but that's another cost since I was once told FAFSA is not offered for summer semester. so my question is should I either:
      #1 drop organic 2 and pay for phlebotomy in the spring and part 2 in the summer and take organic 2 next fall
      #2 pay for the technical school and take organic 2 next fall
      #3 pay for the technical school and organic 2 ( this route will cost me around $3 -$4k maybe)
       I will be trying to get into the LPN program spring 2021 and phlebotomy offers such amazing skills that I would love to have that under my belt for PA school. as for LPN, I work closely with LPNS so I would love to have that kind of health care experience as well ( I am CNA) but also great pay. my plan C is medical laboratory technician if I don't get accepted in the LPN program. unfortunately the BS degree in medical scientist requires a GPA of 3.0 that's why im aiming at the associate degree instead. why mlt? the job looks fun, great science classes = boost my science gpa and higher pay than what im doing right now CNA. I already have 3 years worth of HCE and I would have PHLEB as my other set of HCE.
      my goal in general is obtain awesome skills, be financially stable and boost my PA application. unfortunately because my GPA is so low my options are pretty limited at least in my area. 
      what im lacking in my application is my GPA. im not financially stable to take random hard core sciences without leading to a career, because what if im not competitive enough? then I could end up with no backup.

      would it look bad if I do medical lab tech and lpn at the same time? even though I already have a BS degree with a gpa lower than 3.0? I still would like to have some experience working in the laboratory, for my own personal pleasure( I was pursuing path a for a while but I dropped that) but mlt is 2 years and im struggling financially that's why I thought of LPN. im a CNA so I work closely with LPNs so I get to see most of what they do everyday. basically both can help with my GPA, according to CASPA mlt and nursing counts as science GPA. mlt looks very interesting and fun but is 2 years and lpn im familiar with the field and is quicker. I guess in my head is when im done with lpn I can start working as im finishing up mlt and then work part time as a lpn and full time as a mlt. im not interested in an accelerated bsn because I don't want to take that spot away from someone that really wants it plus being a nurse is not my end goal. I want to be able to be financially stable and enjoying myself while im continuing to move forward with my pa application. I would be attending a community college in which will be cheaper.

      Hello, I graduated last year with a 2.6 GPA and my science GPA is 2.4. I have two D's, I am retaking one of those two D at a community college ( organic chemistry) the other D is in ecology in which I may not retake tbh because I didn't enjoyed the class. I registered for organic chemistry 2 to help my Sgpa but my dilemma is this.... my financial situation is starting to stress me out. I cant afford to take hard core science classes ( like I originally planned) in a degree that doesn't lead to a guaranteed career (biotechnology). so I thought of either medical laboratory technician or lpn.  I thought of these because #1 cheaper and faster option, #2 mlt has always sparked my interest and #3 I'm a cna ( almost 4 years) and I work closely with a lpn.  the lpn option I'm looking at is a certificate option because is only one year. my whole goal in this is to help my GPA and also have a career. I don't mind continuing to build my PA  application after this but I wanna make sure if doing any of these route will help me and not become a waste of time. 
      if you guys have any other suggestions please let me know. the biotechnology degree I can finish it in a year but what if after that I'm still not a strong applicant? then I'm stuck with another degree... no career 
      I don't care how long it takes to become a PA! I'm 24 years old and I already have a lot of financial baggage. I want to make a smart decision

      I thought I’d start this since I didn’t see any posts about this application cycle yet. Has anyone heard back besides the normal “we received your application” email?
