How long after everything was completed did you hear back? I am getting anxious even though I just submitted everything very recently. I'm from New York and would love to go to UVU 🙂

Oh nice! I’m a NYC transplant to Utah! I was verified around July 12th, took the CASPer exam May 14th, around July 14th I received an email saying that my app was under review and nothing else was needed. I submitted the supplemental on July 12th also and paid the 45$. I received an interview invite around July 28th! It’s been an amazing experience! Good luck on your app...we are the second group to interview, there’s one more I think in September

For those that have interviewed, how many people in total were interviewed in your session? Considering someone in the post earlier said they only have about 3 interview dates, I am kind of curious now. 

Thanks!

From what I remember when I called admissions was that they had 3 dates, July 20th, August 10th, had another one in September. But it’s a new program so maybe things can change? Based on what I’ve read on this forum it seems like 4-6 people have been offered a seat. I don’t know how many seats are available in the program though

I believe there are only 3 dates for interviews, class size maximum is 30 based off of the FAQs on the program website.. but I was more so asking how many people interview on each day. Like 20 people each interview date or more than / less than 20. I was curious because 3 interview dates are not a lot so I wanted to know if they are interviewing more students on each date to make up for only having a few interview days or what?? haha

That’s definitely something to think about. 3 interview dates really isn’t a lot to find 30 candidates unless they are being extremely selective about their interview invites and then they can maybe only interview like 40? Lol.. I have no idea...maybe they interview 15 people per group. The interview does last 6 hours after all

Right!? Either they are picky or people may not be aware of the program? I'm so nervous haha but hopefully someone who has interviewed can shed some light on this!

When we interviewed on july 20th I believe there were about 40 people. I'm not sure if that's about the number that will be present for each interview day, but I assume it will be somewhere close to that. Hope that helps

Has anyone who interviewed been denied? I haven’t heard anything yet which makes me scared that they are doing it waves- accepted, waitlisted, and then denied.

I think where you are from is irrelevant. I'm from Washington State and I was accepted. For those who were waitlisted, you should still be excited because that is not a No! I do understand the disappointment though. I'm sure they need or want to keep so many spots open for each interview, so everyone has an equal chance for a seat.

The program gives preference to Utah residence and military vets. It’s a state school. So I’m thinking maybe 50% will be from Utah and 50 from out if state but who knows.

Got an email this afternoon saying I was waitlisted 😔, but at least it wasn’t a no 🙂 🤞🍀 

Does anyone know how many candidates they are going to put on the waitlist and if they are ranking waitlist candidates?

When I interviewed in July, there were 40 applicants, it was a lot but it was also really fun. They said they were planning on doing 3 interview dates with a total of 90-120 applicants total for the cycle!

I have not.....patience is a virtue. haha...I think I check my mail 3 times a day. She said we should get information in the mail within 10 days, but not sure if that's business days or total.

      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?
    • By Jaykayleen
      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!
