As the year comes to a close and the majority of us don't know if the boat we're in is sinking or staying afloat (lol), I want to wish you all a Happy Holiday. Hopefully we all get some positive news

It's everyone, I promise you. Right there with you. It's just the game you gotta play to ~hopefully~ get in, unfortunately 😔

Got my acceptance email today around 2:30. I interviewed 10/25 afternoon group! This was my only interview so far and I am so happy!! I can't wait to meet everyone in the class of 2022!!

I got waitlisted back in February but I just haven’t heard anything else. I was wondering if others who were waitlisted had gotten any news. 

I think that totally depends on your placement on the waitlist bc I was waitlisted in February too but heard back with an acceptance the following week.

Tbh I think they've filled their seats according to what other people have posted here

Hi! I’m also waitlisted and haven’t heard anything since February. So far only one person has been pulled from the waitlist. We still have time, that’s what I keep telling myself. As of right now all seats are filled. I wonder if they will allow additional seats to open for some of the waitlist peeps, probably not but just a thought.

I am trying everything in my power to improve my application - applied for scribe jobs, volunteer positions at hospitals, inquired about additional shadowing. I'm having no luck as they're not allowing any new and/or non-certified workers for the time being for obvious reasons.

I'm looking for ways that you all are improving your application since the cycle opens up this month.

Have you tried calling local clinics about shadowing? Sometimes it’s easier to get in through smaller organizations, that’s what I did. Also, due to the coronavirus it’ll be harder to find something right now but maybe by summertime! I know where I live (Houston area) they aren’t accepting volunteers/shadowing at most hospitals/clinics until further notice. You should also look into pharm tech or dialysis tech positions. I love my pharm tech job and they hired me before I became certified. You can message me if you have more questions.

I'm not so much concerned about shadowing as I have plenty of shadowing hours. Apparently I need PCH to improve my application which at this point feels impossible. 

I've been looking into ways to get certified to do literally anything in the medical field so I will message you for sure. Thanks.

I’d say do a fast paced CNA course (I did mine in 3 weeks) to get that certification and start working in a hospital, but idk if they’re even doing those courses right now. Kind of seems too late/bad timing with all that’s going on.

So I just found out about the Texas Disaster Volunteer Registry (Covid-related). That would look fantastic on an application if you volunteered in a time of crisis. I think they also have non-medical people that can volunteer (I might be mistaken) but anybody with a license or certification would also be put to good use. I just signed up for it and it was pretty simple! Doesn’t hurt to try.

I wasn't accepted. Received my rejection today. I'm a valley native but I will still become a PA because I was accepted to a school in Massachusetts! ❤️ new beginnings for me. 

Congrats on your acceptance! Wish you success!

Wow that’s amazing! Thanks for the update. Congrats and best of luck to you! I was waitlisted in March too but never got an acceptance. Definitely bummed but I reapplied for this year.
