I’m from Cali too! 

Im debating on whether Or not I want to submit my supplemental because of how low the chances are to even be interviewed/accepted. If I knew before I probably wouldn’t have applied. What are your guys thoughts?

@pa5991 I definitely think you should go ahead and submit the supplemental!  You have worked hard and made it this far 🙂 Good Luck!

May  I ask what your stats are?

I believe ( definitely not certain on these as I didn't keep note of them except on the app), 

I have a cumulative GPA 3.51

Science GPA 3.57

Probably ~3000 health care hours as an NA

I think around 80 hours of shadowing multiple PAs.

GRE 304 with a 4.0 on the analytic essay

Many hours volunteering as a mentor with BBBS 

When I did the application review as to why I did not receive an application, they didn't have much to recommend for me as I have taken all of the recommended courses, I am a NM resident, and I am within range for everything. They told me since I am still working I would have more contact hours and to continue shadowing. So I have, and now we wait haha.

This sounds exactly what happened to me. The advisor said everything looked good I just didn’t receive an interview. I’m in the exact same spot, out stats are very similar. You did better on your GRE total, but my analytical score was 4.0. I’m also a New Mexico resident, and have close to the same amount of shadowing/experience hours. Good luck to you!

Ugh, that's so unfortunate! Hopefully we get interviews at the least.Good luck to you as well! I know last year I received the rejection letter on the first Friday of September (9/7) and from the looks of last cycles forum, it seems like that same day they sent out invitation letters. So maybe we will hear something this Friday? Not sure since it seems like things are moving a little slower this year.

      Hi, everyone!
      What are your thoughts on applying to programs with a ARC-PA probationary accreditation status (i.e., "Accreditation-Probation")?
      I'm a first-time applicant, and a couple schools that I have my eye on currently have probationary statuses (Johnson & Wales University; Monmouth University). I was wondering if it's worth applying to said schools, especially to ones that have had a probationary status for more than two years. 
      Although these schools are still considered accredited, is it safe to apply to & then attend these schools? Do these schools prepare students to become competent & trustworthy healthcare professionals? Are these schools worth the debt? My concern is enrolling in a school with probationary accreditation and graduating as a sub par PA-C, but those are just my uncertain sentiments at the moment. 
      Moreover, I've read that applying to these schools may be advantageous to some who aren't considered "strong applicants" (e.g., average grades/GRE). On the other hand, I've seen "strong applicants" display their admiration & loyalty to these schools here on PA Forum. I'm confused! Let's open up the discussion!

      I worked as a PRN rehab technician for about 3 months (roughly 20 hours a week) before I became Full-Time (40 hours a week).  How do I record this change in hours? Do I make two separate entries or average the hours per week?  My hours for PRN also varied each week, with weeks working up to 30 hours and sometimes only 15 hours. Do I need to record this somehow? I also do not understand how PA schools validate that the numbers of hours stated are honest. Is there some sort of validation document needed from each employer from past jobs.  Any advice is appreciated, thank you!

      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?

      I was checking my verified application & I have “Punjabi” listed under “native language”.  On CASPA my response to “first language” was “Punjabi”.   To clarify, I am fluent in English. (I’ve been speaking English since I was 5!! I answered to "first language" quite literally.) Will I run into any problem with PA programs? Would they assume otherwise?   --I was born in California and went to schools K-12 in Cali and then Uni of Cali, Santa Cruz for undergrad. Has anyone else experienced this?
      **The application is locked & I am unable to change it to English**

      Hi everyone.  Thought I'd start the discussion for the 2019-2020 application cycle.  Good luck!
