Interview advice: Just be yourself! My interview was very relaxed and the faculty is so nice. Try to convey your strengths and have an idea of what you want to say before the interview. I would research the program as well! Good luck.

Ahh Martha said hopefully they would let everyone know before March hit. Starting to feel a little less confident now that it's March 2nd, yikes!

Has anyone emailed asking if the seats have been filled yet?

I have been looking in the past forums, and it seems like people have heard back in mid march for a seat? 

I mean from the past drexel forums, it seems like everyone interviewing cycle extends deeper into feb? So idek if expecting a call mid march is accurate for this year.

I was debating asking, but they said in 3 weeks we would know. It will be 3 weeks from my interview on Thursday 3/5.

I didn't want to ask, however I did send an email yesterday asking if there are any updates. I was just told that "they expect decisions to be made within the next few weeks". Fingers crossed!

Hey all, current PA student at Drexel here.

First of all, congrats to everyone who has received an acceptance! You are on the right track on becoming a part of an amazing profession.

Second, if you have not receive news from Drexel, please be patient and give them some time. With everything that is going on with COVID-19, the faculty also have a lot on their plate, especially with finals week and transitioning half of our next quarter online. They are working as diligent as they can.

Stay safe out there!

Thanks so much!! Does this mean there are seats left (and those accepted have yet to be contacted, aside from those who have yet to hear back for a decline?)

      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?
