Did anyone on the waitlist just get an email to confirm that they want to stay active on the waitlist? What does this mean? I’m dying! Does it mean we will hear soon if we get off of it?

I got the same email! I think they are just trying to weed out people who have already been accepted to other programs so they can make the waitlist shorter!! Hopefully we’ll get off soon 🙂

I do not think it was my stats that got me in at all I think it was more that I was very comfortable in the interview and I feel like I was able to be myself. I talked a lot about what I have learned from experiences I have had in the past and how they have effected me/ will help me in the future as a pa. My stats were 3.49 GPA 304 GRE (3.5 writing) and about 2500 patient care hours as a CNA at multiple different locations and specialties. Hope this helps!

@PAgrind I totally agree with @futurepahokie. I think I stood out (and was accepted) based on how I came across personality-wise in the interview. I felt that I conveyed a passionate yet composed, empathetic, and personable self while providing comprehensive and thoughtful answers.

Timeline:
Submitted CASPA app on 6/30, verified on 7/1. South U RIC confirmed on 7/1. Interview offer received on 8/6. Interviewed on 9/6. Acceptance e-mail received on 9/10. The staff typically meets up to discuss applicants that Friday afternoon, then again that Sunday, and they send out some sort of answer the Tuesday immediately after. 

Stats: 
(1st cycle applying)
Overall Non-science GPA: 3.74
GRE: Verbal: 157 / Quant: 156 / Writing: 4.0
Patient Care Hours: 2544
  (2152 were as an MA and Scribe at Stanford, the rest were extern/volunteer hours)
PA Shadowing Hours: 64
Volunteer Hours: 304
Research Hours: 850
Extra Curriculars: Collegiate team captain, extensive leadership training in college, member of Pre-PA student association.  

Good luck to you all! 🙂

I just got an invitation to interview on November 1st!  I was not expecting to hear back at this point, but I'm excited to meet everyone interviewing that day!  Does anyone know how close they are to filling the class?

Hi, 

Anyone traveling from New York for the 10/1/2019 interview? If so, how are you all trying to get there. 

For those of you who already interviewed, how was the interview like and any tips to keep in mind? 

Thank you in advance for the help!

Was anyone invited to interview on Nov. 22?

No but I’m shocked they are still interviewing when they start in January. That’s great. When did you submit your application?

I was surprised too because I was told Nov. 1 was the last interview date! I submitted on July 19. I was invited for 11/1 date but I couldn't go so I declined and got another email last week inviting me to 11/22.

Does anyone know when they will be taking people off the waitlist? I have called and emailed them last month to get more information but didn't get much of a response. I really like this school!

To my knowledge, they are still interviewing students through the month of November. I suspect that students on the waitlist won't hear anything (if at all) until the beginning of December at the soonest. I do find this odd, however, because looking at previous cohorts, students were accepted from the waitlist as early as October. Strange.

So nobody has been pulled off the waitlist yet? 

*Signed a person anxiously waiting to hear back?* lol

They weren't waitlisted. They were accepted from the 11/01 interview outright.

Thanks!  Actually, I was placed on the waitlist on November 5th and received my acceptance on the 14th.
