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!

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.

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 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!

So I got an email today- I was waitlisted. I was hoping for better news, but I guess there's still a chance! Good luck to you all.

      So I am currently trying to figure out my credits and classes for the applications but I am having a lot of trouble matching courses. My college was a private college that went by trimesters. My classes were 3 credits each and they did not offer general biology. Instead the sequence went Zoology, Cellular Biology, and Botany and they were 3 credits each. So, if a program requires 4 credits of General Biology, does this mean that those three classes will not satisfy the requirement? Will I have to retake the classes somewhere else then?

      Hello everyone! I thought I would start a thread for this cycle. Waiting for my transcripts to be received by caspa and then I plan on submitting.

      Hi all, can someone please tell me my chances of being invited to an interview or give me suggestions as to what I should do to improve my application? I would really appreciate any input. I’m applying next cycle (2021-2022) thank you in advance!
      Btw I calculated it the way caspa would using ThePAPlatform gpa calculator. 
       
      cGPA: 3:77
      sGPA: 3.3
      ~1400 hrs as a CNA
      ~200 hrs as a behavior therapist (it was cut short due to COVID and I have to move back home hours away)
      I just got offered a job at the front desk at the chiropractic office I’m getting treated at (I recently got in a car accident and couldn’t get my old job back as a CNA) but this would count as HCE! I could potentially do this from May until late Sept and work ~24hrs/week.
      -Medical mission trip over winter break
      -Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society
      - Multiple deans list
      - Chancellor’s award (scholarship) 
      -Tutored children for a semester (~50 hours)
      - Vice President of my pre-pa club, and was an intern for this club before getting accepted to this position. 

      - I also plan to rack up more hours once I move back to my university 
      Any feedback is appreciated, thank you!

      Has Anyone ever got accepted without any clinical hours? Also, would shadowing a pa or working as a pharmacy technician count as clinical hours?

      I had to retake one class my freshman year, and I really do not want to waste a few sentences in my personal statement to speak about it. Although, I also understand it is best to address it somewhere. Is there another place on CASPA to discuss shortcomings on your application? I do not see a place, but I want to make sure I am not missing something.
