Has anyone gotten an interview invite after receiving the "initial review" email? 

Unfortunately no, not yet. But I'm hoping for one because it seems like they still have interviews in February.

I just tried to really be myself and show them my personality and passions! Prepare to know the profession, your strengths, and know yourself! It was definitely was one of my favorite interviews cause it was so casual ☺️

I just got an acceptance call today too after interviewing on 1/16. I'm completely in shock considering I had heard absolutely nothing until the week before the interview!

What is your name? I can't tell from your username but its so great to have interviewed with a future classmate 🙂

Oh my gosh same!! I didn't hear from them until 8 days prior to the interview.

My name is Vi! Not sure if we met at the interview, but it's amazing we're in the same cohort!

Yup, same thing- I thought maybe I took someone's spot who dropped out. Either way, it all worked out!

I don't know if we met either but I'm local to Philly so feel free to reach out if you have any questions about the area.

I just got accepted!!  my interview was on 1/16! I was so excited I didn’t grasp too much of the information explained over the phone. How long after the call did you all receive an official acceptance email with instructions for the seat deposit?

Congrats! I interviewed on 1/16 as well. I wonder if we met that day?  I got the email I think about 4 days after I got the acceptance call.

Congrats! Any advice for the interview or what you think you did to get accepted? I hope to join you in next year's cohort!

Accepted from the 1/23 interview! Is there already a Facebook group for accepted students? I thought it would be nice to have a group for just PA students so we can connect before!

I got an invite to interview last week... exciting but It feels so late in the game and I’ve already accepted a seat at UW-La Crosse, which is another great program. Has anyone been through this? I’m so torn whether I should still consider the interview.. any advice?!

Wow congrats on getting in to UW-La Crosse! Are you coming from Wisconsin to interview? I would still come if you're not 100% certain that you love it there, but if you're paying a lot to fly out to Philly I'm not sure it would be worth it for you.

I think the biggest part of any interview is being confident and being yourself. I genuinely enjoyed being surrounded by other students and had a great time getting to know everyone! That takes a lot of pressure off you knowing you’re going to later enter an individual interview. If you don’t know what questions they will ask, be prepared to incorporate your answers in another way to ensure you say everything you want them to know about you!

      Looking for help brainstorming thoughtful questions in order to get application feedback - besides "how can I make my application stronger?". There is always room for improvement, just looking for the right questions to ask.

      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?
