My friend and I both haven’t heard back either! Like @bk5991 said, I think we’re on an unspoken interview waitlist. Still not getting my hopes up but we shall see!! Crossing my fingers some people get into their top choices and let their spot go hahaha

I called them, the woman told me they still have interview spots open and are still considering applicants. She looked at my application profile and told me a decision had not been made yet so I suppose there's a slight chance some of us might still get an invitation. Cutting it close though. PS. Application approved on last possible day of cycle.

@Emileenwood congrats on your acceptance! That is so exciting. I'm eagerly waiting in the "committee hold" group, so it's nice to hear of a little movement in the list 🙂

To everyone interviewing at Pacific this weekend: best of luck to you all! The faculty, students, and staff are all so kind and welcoming...I really can't speak highly enough of this program!

Just received an interview invite for November 23rd!  There is still hope everyone!  Is there anyone who would want to meet up for dinner that Friday the 22nd or even meet up before the start on the 23rd?

Hi Daniel, I would love to meet up. I’ll send a PM. See you soon!

Awesome!  If there are any others, or even current students that would like to meet up prior, that would be great!

Yeah! I have an interview at Medex the day before so I’ll be driving down - an early morning meetup could work! There’s a coffee shop at the hospital just a couple of blocks away from the school, and a coffee shop on the first floor of the school, and a Starbucks also but it doesn’t have indoor seating. Unsure of the hours of each. We have to be there at 8?

I called Leah today to cancel my application. Over the past 4 months of radio silence I have had plenty of time to second-guess my career decisions, make back-up plans, etc. After many hours of soul searching, I have decided to pursue an accelerated BSN instead of PA. It was hard to come to that decision, but it's the right thing for me given my circumstances... and I now feel greatly relieved! I would be happy to discuss the pros and cons of RN/DNP vs PA privately if anyone else feels ambiguous.

In my discussion with Leah, she iterated that "the longer it takes for us to get back to you about an interview, the closer you are to getting an interview". She stated that most of the invitations have gone out, but they are still filling interview spots for Nov. 23rd. Though I cancelled my application before a decision had been made, she said that my application had been processed and was "pretty close" to receiving an interview. That, to me, sounds like they are working from a short list of "maybes" to fill the final interview spots. For reference, my stats were as follows:

BCP GPA: 3.91

Last 45 GPA: 3.94

PCE: ~2200 as a physical therapist assistant

LOR: 2 from academic sources, 1 from a clinical source. None from a PA or MD.

Also, in my opinion, I had a very strong personal statement. But I will never really know!

I wish the best for all of you. If being a PA is really your dream, don't give up. If you still have not received a "no" from Pacific, that is good news! Wait just a few more days and you are sure to get an answer!! Signing off for now.

      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 thought I would start this thread since CWRU is one of my top choices! I have not submitted my application yet, but I plan to do so middle July. Good luck everyone!

      I realize that this is not the typical question, but a college professor recently commented to another student during class that a 4.0 GPA is more detrimental than 3.8 on a PA application because "they'll assume you're a perfectionist, and no one wants to teach a perfectionist". Is this legit?
      My goal in my classes has been to learn the material well so I have a solid foundation to draw from in the future when I am treating patients. I am maintaining a 4.0 GPA with a full-time course load and without sacrificing sleep or a life. I was taught to work hard for my passions and I enjoy delving deeper into subjects that interest me personally, so I'm a bit taken aback by my professor's comment.
