Has anyone heard anything back yet? I submitted weeks ago but haven't heard a thing either way.

I haven't heard anything yet.  It's my understanding that the first round of interviews is planned for July.  Good luck everyone!

What are all your thoughts about the program? Should we apply after the program gets accredited-provisional?

Thanks!

They have their final site visit for accreditation in September and they supposedly do rolling admissions, so I wouldn't wait if you want to apply this cycle.

Did anyone submit everything and not get an email saying their app was under review? I submitted everything back in May, and the only email I received was a receipt for the supplemental app payment.

God, I'm overly excited/anxious to hear back about interviews! Trying not to schedule anything for weekends the next month or so, just in case.

Just got this today,

We have received your application via CASPA and upon further review, you have completed all necessary supplemental items and your application is now ready for review.  We will notify you when a decision has been made.

Sincerely,

Admissions

My experience was the same.  I called the graduate admissions office to verify that my application was complete because I never received a confirmation email like I did at the University of Utah.  They confirmed that it was complete, but they sounded very unsure over the phone.  They couldn't tell me why I didn't get a confirmation.

Was there a secondary application?  Or was it all part of the initial CASPA application?  I know there were two supplemental essay questions on the original application.  Was that supposed to be the secondary application?  This is my first application cycle, so I'm new to it all.  Thanks in advance for your response!

Okay friends, if you never received a confirmation email from UVU (like my situation) you need to contact them.  It could mean something is wrong with your application.  I'm glad I got mine straightened out!  I recommend emailing, not calling the program.  They are very pleasant to work with, and I think this is going to be a great program!

Also... interview invitations will likely be sent out next week.  Good luck!

I got an email saying that my application was incomplete. I looked at my application after logging in, and it looks complete. I called the university and they said that I missing three letters of recommendation, transcripts, and an essay. But we all know that comes from Caspa. The PA program doesn't take phone calls because they're so overloaded, but I think that they are the people that I need to talk to you. Has anyone had this problem?

Yes, I had this exact same problem.  The help desk gave me the same information about missing transcripts, letters of recommendation and essay, yet when I called the general graduate office they said everything was complete (I had to press a random button on the phone tree before I got an actual person).  I finally got in touch with the program to straighten it out.  Your best bet is to email them.  Don't worry, there is still plenty of time before the application deadline.  It's very stressful, I know!

Received an email tonight with an invitation to interview on July 20th! I look forward to meeting all of those who will be there to interview on that day. Hang in there everyone. I know it’s stressful, and you check your email 20 times a day with the hope of seeing some good news. It will come.

Do you think all the invites for the 20th went out yesterday?  That's a super short time frame for those needing to fly.  (Good times!)

I'm new to all this, but do schools send you a "thanks but no thanks" if you aren't invited to interview?  At what point do you know you have been rejected?  Sigh, so stressful!

I don’t know. So far it looks like I’m the only one following this forum that’s received an invite. I’m sure others have as well, but silence isn’t helping for those of you still waiting on eager anticipation

      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!
