Submitted CASPA application on 6/5 and was verified on 6/7. Received an email on July 1st stating my application has been reviewed and rated. It states the earliest interview date is October 4th and they will notify the applicants "approximately 1 month in advance of the interview date" which means we won't hear back until the first week of September at the earliest if selected for the first round of interviews.

From applying in the past, was told by Helen that applicants should try and ensure their application is submitted and verified by June 15th to improve their chances.     Just wanted to put that out there.  Submitted and verified 6/4. 

Good luck all!

Does anyone know why there is still so few acceptances? I was accepted after the first interview round 10/4 but there are still only 5 or 6 people in the accepted face book group. I wonder why they spread the interviews out so much as many people have likely already been accepted elsewhere.

Possibly because there has only been two interview dates out of 5? Two more in January and one in February... just my guess... hoping to still get an invite 😊

Also there is an accepted student FB group? How do I get there?

How long after you interviewed did you get accepted? 

I heard back 1 week after. They notify acceptances within 1-2 weeks.

      As someone who has a noncompetitive GPA, I am considering pursuing a Master's in Biomedical Sciences to show programs that my study habits and academic performance has most certainly improved. 
      -Does anyone know if grades received in a master's program help boost the overall GPA?
      - Would the science courses taken at a grad level count for PA school pre-reqs?
      -Any tips/advice from those that have taken this route?
       
      I appreciate you taking the time to help 🙂

      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'm considering becoming a PA and have always been interested in aesthetic dermatology. I was wondering how content PA's are with specializing in aesthetic dermatology and what kind of work hours there are. Another thing, are the work hours flexible? I'd love to start a family but not sure how much it will affect that. Thank you!

      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!
