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

Anyone who accepted their interview hear anything back yet with further details? I know they stated it would be on 10/11, I keep refreshing my email as I'm super eager!

I got my email update about a half an hour ago. It sounds like we won't even been doing the online interview until November.

I have not received anything from EMU since the email informing us more instructions were to come in November..

I still have not heard anything back yet about the online interview since October 11th. I REALLY hope they let us know come Monday! If not, I think I am going to call and see what is going on.

Did you happen to call today? I’m so anxious, and I was thinking about calling as well!

They did not answer. I would say to call if you can, it can't hurt. Please let us know what they say if they do. I wish they would give us the date it will open so that we know what to expect and plan for it. I pray it opens this week. I know I am not the only one that will be gone most of next week traveling with family for thanksgiving. 

-I wonder if they are experiencing problems with the new interview software or something. 

Best of luck everyone, hopefully we hear more soon! 🙂

      I am a member of AAPA and maybe I am unfamiliar with the website, but I want to make the most learning from the site and using it.
      How do PA-S or PA-C use it? As a Pre-PA how can I use the site and its resources to help?
      I appreciate it!

      Hey guys my name is Geena and I'm a PA at a primary care in Philadelphia. We are currently hiring scribes and medical assistants (no experience required- we will train). This is a great opportunity for pre-PA's who need experience hours! Message me for details 🙂

      I saw a thread started somewhere but it wasn’t connected to this board. 
       
      I feel like we are slacking this year! Where is everyone?? 😂

      Hi guys, 
      I didn't see a new thread. Hope this helps you guys. Just like in previous years they are moving forward, but it may look a bit different because COVID seems to be slowing down. Here's the email I received on 5/11/2021. I submitted my application on 5/3/2021 and verified on 5/11/2021. 
       
      Thank you for applying to the Radford University Carilion PA program. This email is to let you know that your application is complete, has been marked as "Verified", and we have received your RU supplemental application. Your application will be put in a queue to be reviewed. You may still provide updates to your application through the CASPA website.
      Once applications are reviewed, we will make decisions on whom to interview. Our earliest interview dates will be in September. As we don't yet have exact dates selected for interviews, we will likely make offers for interviews in early July at the soonest.
      We will send out periodic updates to keep you apprised of your status. However, with the necessary changes in how we accomplish our tasks, those updates may not be as frequent as we would like them to be. We are happy to answer any questions that come up, and you are welcome to email me at rhadley1@radford.edu.
      Thank you,
      Bob Hadley
