Eastern Virginia Medical School 2019-2020 Cycle Applicants

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone, My name is Simone and I could not find a topic that was about EVMS and this cycles applicants. So I hope this can be an opportunity for us all to connect, network, get advice from one another, as well as being a support for each other going through this PA journey! 

 

Please feel free to add information about yourself, like where your from, what admissions requirements you would be applying with, any questions you my have that may assist you with the application.... ANYTHING lol. 

 

Hope this is helpful to you all. God bless you and your successful journey to becoming a Physician Assistant!😁

Hello all! I am signed up for the information session on 06/23 @ 1000.  I have a question about prereqs.  I am lacking in some and am looking for a recommendation of a self paced online school that is accepted at EVMS.  I would like to get these knocked out fairly quickly and remain on track to meet the 3/1/20 deadline.  Thanks!

University of New England is great. I took a self paced online microbiology there. They’re accredited and accepted by EVMS. If you’re looking into a specific school and aren’t sure, just contact the admissions department.

I would second University of New England online.  They have most of the prereqs you need, however, I highly recommend taking UNE online courses one at a time.  They are no longer self-paced, designed to be time-consuming, and can be quite challenging.  If you are curious about a specific class or professor, message me.  I've taken UNE micro, pathophys, statistics, anatomy, and phys.

Hey Everyone! 

I saw on their website that they require a supplemental application, however I can't find a link to it anywhere. Does anyone know if there is a supplemental app? Thanks!

Yes there is one. Did you complete all of the prerequisites? You won’t be able to submit the supplemental without completing them and having the final grades. You should be able to access it from CASPA.

@FuturePA2022 I have completed all pre-reqs and have all my final grades. I don't see a link in my CASPA application, I'll try to email them about it. Thanks! 🙂

I emailed the program earlier this year and they informed me that there is no supplemental. 

They told me that they would update the site too!

Hello everyone!

Re: UNE for pre-requisites— I am taking Microbiology at UNE right now, and it is time consuming, but very well implemented. I have found quizlet to be very helpful for studying. I am so excited to apply and hopefully be interviewing this time next year! 

I’m currently working on my personal statement and just received edits back from my-a resource. I highly recommend!

Hi everyone!

Does anyone know if all the science pre-reqs require labs? Thanks!

The website says that all classes must be at least 3 semester credits... that is generally the amount of credits for just the course without the lab. However, most people take labs for the science courses.

I agree it’s hard to take micro without taking the lab. It usually is corequired. They just want lecture not lab it says it in the handbook if that helps!

I took the CASPer test in June. It was easy. Good luck this application cycle. It took two for me to be accepted. I just got offered a seat at UVU. I had one interview last cycle and was waitlisted at MCPHS. Then one interview so far this cycle and was accepted. EVMS was very high on my list, in my top 3.

Opinions please... Do re-applicants need to find new people to write new references or if the same people are willing to do it again stick with them?

Since CASPA requires new evaluator letters be loaded every year, you probably want writers that you know will update their recommendations.  I had a couple in common to both apps, but made sure I gave them additional information about what I did to improve my application to make it more competitive.  Go with your gut.

Hello everyone! its been awhile since I have been on here, but i am the creator of this topic, I am so happy to see people actually using it. This will be my first cycle applying to EVMS and currently working on my personal statement letter. Since they do not have open enrollment I assume its okay that I am still working on my letter? I just feel so behind for some reason.

From my research on their website, they are not rolling admissions, therefore I think that as long as you submit your letter by the deadline you should be okay! I typically finish everything all together and earlier because other schools I have applied to are rolling, so maybe that's why you feel behind 🙂 but I wouldn't worry too much for this school!

I am still making finishing touches on mine as well. I am only applying to programs with January and March non-rolling deadlines this round so that my classes that I retook could be calculated into my GPA. Don't feel like you are behind. You are fine for applying to EVMS since they are non-rolling.

I got an email from them 2 days ago stating they received my application. I applied early in the cycle even though they do not utilize rolling admissions.

This is my second cycle for EVMS. My current CASPA was verified on 8/3 and I received a confirmation email from EVMS on 8/15. I thought there was a  supplemental but this cycle, I cannot find that information.
