Just received an email that my application has 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!

Same here. Thought it was a weird response to get... but in any case I've been accepted elsewhere! Congrats to everyone accepted already

Does anyone know if there’s a Facebook page for those accepted yet? 

This is my question as well! I was accepted on 11/12 from the 10/3 interview.

Congrats to everyone who has been accepted! For those who are still waiting for an interview invite or an acceptance, hang in there!

I am a current student at the Drexel PA program, and am here to help if anyone has any questions. Just shoot me a message and I'll try my best to get back to you.

Here is the FB group for the upcoming class: https://www.facebook.com/groups/409746259955797/

I just received an interview for 01/16. Does anyone know if the class is already full or if this is the last interview session?

i just received an interview for 2/13, so maybe that’s the last one? Shocked they’d go this long.

I got a missed call from Drexel and interviewed 11/20. Should i call back? 

I would say call back if they left a voicemail saying they are from Drexel!

Any of the previous interviewers have any advice for preparing for the writing sample portion of the interview? Just want to know if it is  something I should be worried about or is it pretty straightforward ?

The writing portion is pretty straightforward. I would make sure you are familiar with issues/strengths of the PA profession. Also be prepared to reflect on your strengths as an applicant.

 

I cannot give specific examples because A. it wouldn't be fair, and B. I don't remember the exact questions from 4 months ago. 

Good luck at your interview!

Just received an interview for 2/13!!! Honestly don't even care if I'm on their list because other people declined interviews/acceptances, because all that matters is they like me and I know this is all happening for a reason. Can't wait to meet everyone!!

I got an email way back in July notifying me of the "receipt of application" but I have heard nothing since. Anyone else in the same boat? 

I sent my application in back in July and didn’t hear anything back until I got an interview invite by email last week!

Just got an interview for 2/13! Must have a few spots left I guess? Does anyone know how many spots are filled, or approximately how many could be left? Anyways, I'm flying in on the 12th in the afternoon. Who else will be there for 2/13 interview? Excited to meet you all!

      Hello!  I’m currently a senior biology major working as a medical scribe for a bit over 1 year now. I have accumulated about 1100 hours so far and have a cGPA of 3.63 and a science GPA of 3.36. I also have volunteered at a food bank with about 100 hours during the weekends. As a scribe I chart many aspects of the patient visit including vitals, HPI, physical exam and future plans. I also occasionally assist the provider with small tasks such as cerumen flushing in internal medicine or taking an US in a rheumatology setting. I have been researching PA programs to apply to and focusing on those that list scribing as PCE.  I am worried that this experience alone may not be enough as some schools don’t mention scribing as true PCE and I don’t feel I am able to gain another experience as I am currently studying for the GRE, working 3 times a week and will begin my next school semester soon. During my gap year after I apply I will have more time to find another part time job but this won’t be reflected on my application.  Will I still have a chance at being accepted into a program next cycle and if not what else do you recommend I do prior to applying? Thanks for any help you can provide.

      Hey guys, I'm sure there's a lot of non-traditional students out there. I'm currently working as a Physical Therapist Assistant in a rehab hospital and a Pre-PA student applying to the PA program next year. I made a video to talk about my experiences, why I chose PA, and what my aspirations are as a future PA. Let me know what you think, and I would love if some non-traditional students who are seeing this are willing to share their experiences as well!

      Hello, this is my first time posting on this website and am hoping to get some help. I just made a profile on the CASPA website recently. When I went to look for these two programs I am interested in I could not find them. Do programs not show up until certain times during the year? Thank you in advance.

      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.
