Congrats to everyone who got an interview! Still unsure of why I was rejected.. wondering if I should reach out to the school and ask what I could do to make my application stronger?

I did not get an interview either but I knew I had some things to work on. I will retake my GRE and keep taking more classes to plump up my gpa. What are your stats?

Did anyone receive an email verification after you sent your interview acceptance email back to them? I think we should hear back on or after October 11th but I just wanted to make sure. Thanks everyone and best of luck! 🙂

I emailed back an interview acceptance Friday but have not received an email verification since. I am assuming we will hear back October 11th as well.

Is there anyone that hasn’t heard back yet? When I applied back in June they said they would get back no later than 10/1 and I haven’t heard anything since

Hmm.. no matter what, you should have heard. You got the two emails from caspa and emu after you submitted your apps saying that everything was complete?

Yeah I got both. The one from EMU said it went thru a preliminary review and I meet the min requirements

      Hey all,
      I am currently a 1st year graduate student for athletic training. I am looking into become a PA. Looking to withdraw from my program to pursue PA prerequisites but not sure if this was a good idea. Or if I should complete my program then complete prerequisites. Thanks!

      Will I be completely overlooked if I answer yes to academic dishonesty question on CASPA?
      My senior year of undergrad I took an management online course. There was an ungraded assignment that I didn't think I had to complete. To my dismay, the professor stated in his syllabus that the failure to complete this specific module to the best of our ability would result in being reported as academic dishonesty. Needless to say, he reported over 100 students.  I had zero intentions of cheating. It was an act of laziness-- if anything. The assignment itself was ungraded and didn't even go towards my grade to begin with.  I was just given a written warning for "the failure to comply with instructions." I tried to appeal but the professor was trying to make a point to the class. I still received an A in the course.  However, I understand that I must answer yes to the academic dishonesty question.
      I am discouraged and worried that this mistake will cost me my future as a PA.  I am not sure how to explain what happened in only 500 characters and have them believe that it really was just that and not me trying to put a positive twist on my actions. The rest of my application is fairly strong. It will be two years since this occurred when I apply. Should I be worried? Will PAs even consider me? Any advice would be appreciated.

      I'm currently pre-pa and have a few questions on PCE. I have been a volunteer at my town's first aid squad for three years (~500 hours), although I am not an EMT (I haven't had time to take the class because I am a college-athlete and unfortunately do not have the time). Would this still count as at patient care hours, or only if I become a certified EMT? My role includes assisting the EMTs, transporting patients, taking vitals, and writing down patient information. Thanks in advance!

      I was wondering if anyone had every considered sending handwritten letters of appreciation after an interview? If so, to whom did you address and send? If not that's totally understandable, I just wasn't sure what the consensus was out in the world. Thank you so much!!
