Hrm weird. I thought I read somewhere it was $50 lol does anyone know when we start hearing back from the program? 

Loma Linda supplemental application is free, and usually you will get phone call for interview around 6 weeks (+ or - ) after you submit the supplemental.

Hi! How long after submitting your application did you received the Supplemental application invite ?

Hi! It took about 1 week for me to receive the supplemental application invite. On their website it says it could take up to four weeks.

Hi everyone! Does Loma Linda send supplemental applications to all applicants? 

I don't know if they send it to everyone! I have received mine about 3 weeks ago I think!

I had not received my supplemental application so I reached out to the program (very professional, polite, and informative when you call). The lady who answered the phone advised that they download VERIFIED applications from caspa every Tuesday and supplemental applications are sent typically within a few days of download. 

This held true for me - Submitted application, caspa verified application in approximately 3 days (was a Thursday) received supplemental application the following Wednesday afternoon.

I submitted my application on July 20th. CASPA verified my application on August 5th and Loma sent me the supplemental app on the 6th. After submission, I received the confirmation of receipt email on August 12th. Now its the waiting game for all of us. 🙂

Hello everyone! I am waiting for an updated transcript to arrive to CASPA to be able to submit my app. Quick question, does the supplemental application include extra essays we have to write? Thanks in advance!

Yes, there are additional essay questions through the supplemental application

Last year, I got invited to interview in January. I submitted my application on June 1st! Don't get discouraged, you all have a lot of time to hear still. I am about to start in the current class. You are welcome to message with any questions about the application process.

Congrats on getting in last cycle!! And thanks for the encouragement 🙂 I hope to be in your shoes next year! How was the interview process? Was it MMI style, traditional questions, essay portion, group interviews?

The interview process an LLU was relatively intense. There was an essay portion and an exam. There were multiple interview portions, and you will have all of the above. Know your application and know yourself. The interview at LLU is very interactive, and they are really trying to get to know you. You can message me individually with additional questions if you have any.

Those of you who were granted an interview, do you mind sharing your stats?

I received an interview last cycle in February, I believe I was in the last interview session and submitted my application in August. So patience is definitely key! I was ultimately waitlisted and have just reapplied this cycle.

My stats last cycle:

Overall GPA: 3.34
Last 60 GPA: 3.6
BCP GPA: 3.43

PCE: 3150 hours
Shadowing: 90 hours 

Volunteer: ~600 hours

Wishing everyone luck this cycle! Be patient. I was losing hope last cycle and didn't expect to even get one interview but ended up receiving three (Jan, Feb, and March) !

      Hey guys!
      I'm new here, but was reaching out for advice. I am currently working as a PT and find myself often looking into becoming a PA with a desire to understand the medical model more. I love my job as a PT but don't know if I feel the passion I once thought I had. I would love to hear from anyone else who made this jump from PT/PTA/OT to PA. 
      What made you decide to leave your field and enter into a new and rigorous graduate program?
      Was the intensity of the course work and potentially added debt worth it?
      Do you feel that your prior career helped you at all through the graduate program?
      I have almost paid all of my student debt down from undergrad/PT school, have worked for two years and have a husband who can support me financially through PA school if I choose to go that route.
      I graduated undergraduate with a 3.95 GPA, my DPT program with a 3.96 GPA and got a 300 on the GRE. I feel well equipped but would just love to hear from others and their experiences! 
      Thanks everyone!

      Hello everyone,
      I have been playing professional baseball since 2014. Due to covid, there is a chance my career could be cut short due to contracts (long un-needed story). I was a student athlete in college until I was drafted after my junior year in 2014. There are definitely more difficult situations out there, but being a student athlete at my school meant I had 2-3 hours to study per day starting at 8-9pm and we lifted at 5am every day. Finishing my degree in minor league baseball was just as tough. 12 hour bus rides twice a week, hotels, 10 hour days at the field, and playing for 6 months with only 2 days off a month. Not trying to make excuses, it was just tough for me.
      I still need to take organic chemistry, but my cGPA is 3.3 and my sGPA is 3.2. I have not taken the GRE and I have about 80 documented hours of shadowing, with over 300 undocumented hours.
       
      Until it is certain my career has ended, what can I do to stay fresh on all my sciences? Have I missed anything to apply for PA school? Do I have a chance of getting in to school? A friend of mine is a physician and said medical/PA schools love unique stories and backgrounds. Even with my story, I want everything else to show I have a passion for medicine and I’m willing to bust my butt in school when I can strictly focus on school.
      Thank y’all in advance for any honest feedback!

      Hello everyone,
      I am new to this site and I would really appreciate if I can receive advice. I have an undergraduate GPA of 3.045 right now this is prior to my spring semester grades being placed in and I project my GPA to raise but I guess not much since I will mostly have A's and B's. I am also graduating in December so I have one more semester. What makes me nervous is that Yale requires prereq's that I don't have yet (Micro, A&P I AND II, and Biochem) but I have the statistics portion. Luckily, Yale doesn't require any labs for the prereq's. Yale's minimum GPA req is a 2.8 however, CASPA hasn't calculated my GPA yet and based on what I've heard a CASPA gpa is way lower than your transcript gpa and I want to be competitive. 
      Not to mention that I am a psychology major which is already not the usual biology/chem. My major (science undergraduate) is a 3.5. 
      My plans were this summer to take these classes at a community college while completing classes towards finishing my degree at my usual university. The reason for this is due to COVID-19 and my school deciding to continue remote learning via ZOOM. My university doesn't have the best science professors from what I heard and what I seen (taking chem which I got an A in). I figured community college whose curriculum is already set up as online would be much easier for me to pick u in and CHEAPER of course. I say all of this to ask if it makes since to put myself through all of this in the summer if I may not get an interview based on the fact that my regular GPA is 3.0 and even if I take all of these classes and receieve a 4.0 I doubt my CASPA gpa will be raised by that much.
      My PCE (Paid) is 2000.

      So I finally got a job at my dream hospital!! I am currently working there as a Patient Care Technician/ PCT. However, I will be leaving for PA school next year. I really want to return to this hospital and work as a PA! The problem is that getting a job at my hospital is super competitive. Is there a way for me to ensure/ increase my chances of getting a PA job in this facility in the future?
       
      (Also, what do you guys think of requesting a absense of leave instead of quitting? Can I be able to come back to the hospital to pursue a higher position?)

      Thanks in advance!

      Hey All,
      I didn't see a thread like this so I thought I would start one!  I just got a letter of rejection for the Post-Bacc Pre med program from UVA.  I applied October 1st.
