I am in the same boat..had the link to register and I registered..but no email yet. Not sure how many they send out each wave.

 

Also, the 1st wave has the highest points, 2nd has the second highest, etc. It is a point-based system. 

Do you know the criteria for the point system ? And do you know typically how much second wave invites get sent out?

This is in the handbook: 

EVMS evaluates applicants through four lenses: cognitive/academic, personal/non-cognitive, healthcare experience and community service.” 
 

As far as how many, I assume it’s based on how many of us in the first wave accept our interview invite.

I agree with what @LaurenR19 said. Plus you get points from your application (GPA, PCE hours, community service hours,  personal statement, CASPER exam, etc.) and another score from your interview. They are combined and those with the highest scores receive acceptance offers. Usually they interview about 160 and there are about 80 seats. So 50/50 chance.

This is what I just heard back.

The emails went out at 9:00 AM. However, if you registered prior to that, the email is suppressed as it is set to not send to applicants who have already registered. The emails send automatically after your PURL is updated.

No worries about using the link with your PURL. Be reminded that your PURL is personalized to you, so you were meant to see it. I hope that clarifies things. Congratulations on your interview invitation.

Please stay tuned to your email for instructions on the interview process.

Have a good day,

Erin

So I used the PURL to register before 9am today. I did not receive an email. So I should be okay if I used the PURL to register? Congrats to all who got invites! So exciting!!

4.0 Prereq GPA

3.9 last 40 credits GPA (Replacement GPA)

10,000+ paid PCE as Medical Assistant & Nurse Technician

500+ hours community service

3rd time applicant: 1st time- didn't receive an interview, had to retake 1 prereq to increase that GPA to make me more competitive, 2nd time--had an interview first wave but did not perform well (nerves), 3rd time is the charm! 😀
