2019-2020 University of the Cumberlands

Recommended Posts

I emailed the admissions due to not receiving a confirmation email. I wanted to ensure they would consider my application. They responded that all required documents have been received, but that was it. I considered calling Shonda Powers (You can reach me via call or text at 606-268-6718 or via email at shonda.powers@ucumberlands.edu. ). This is the last school I need to hear from, and I am considering taking a few classes this fall 2019 semester to better my application for next cycle. But if I do not drop the class prior to August 30th I will lose A LOT of money.

I emailed Shonda yesterday asking about confirmation emails and she replied back with this:

“Not yet. We’re still reviewing over 200 applications. We hope to have emails out by mid to late August.
 
— Shonda”
 
So hopefully we will know something soon! Good luck!
 
Also, has anyone had any trouble with receiving emails from other programs? So far 4/5 programs I’ve talked to said they had sent me confirmation emails but I never got them in inbox or junk mail. I’ve heard it’s an issue between CASPA and hotmail/gmail addresses, but just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this!

The portals offered for this school is made to ensure you have completed your supplemental application and paid the supplemental app fee. There is no indicator of the status of your application.

If we haven't heard by next week, we probably won't hear from them at all. I heard that their interviews were in early September. 

Fingers crossed everyone hears something this week.

I got an email from them the end of last week asking if I could send a course outline for one of the courses I took, so hopefully that's a good sign that they're starting to review applications! They also say on their website that they'll send invites at least one week before the interviews, and it also says dateS set. It maybe splitting hairs, but maybe that means there's a handful of interview dates? Idk though.

From what I’ve heard since they do not do rolling admission, they did not start reviewing applications until the due date (sept 1) so everyone is on a level playing field no matter when you turned in your application. I turned my app in early June and just got an email last week asking for a course syllabus for one of my classes.

Ohhhh this makes more sense now. If you don't mind me asking, where did you hear they don't do rolling admission? I also believe their deadline was August 1st rather than September 1st.

Sorry, yes it was Aug. 1! (So many different dates to keep track of!) And one of the admissions staff mentioned it when we were talking.

Good to know. I agree that there's a lot of dates to keep track of! Hopefully we'll hear something soon.

I just received an interview invite via email. They did not provide a date as of yet as they said that dates will be assigned based on the time of RSVPing, but they mentioned that you must RSVP by Sept. 3 or risk forfeiting your invitation (not sure if that's the last day they will be sending invitations, but I'd say it's unlikely).

Best of luck to everyone! 🙂

      Hello all 🙂
      Looking to sell off my Magoosh GRE subscription with 3 months left.
      Anyone interested can message me or comment!

      Hello, I am having a lot of trouble trying to narrow down schools to apply to. Where I currently live, most of the schools nearby I cannot apply to because of my stats so I am seeking out of state options. I am ending my sophomore year so I still have another year before I can begin applying (and another year to continue to boost my GPA). Any help would be appreciated!
       GPA currently: 3.426 ( My last semester has not been added in still and my science GPA would be similar)
      I am not taking Ochem 2 or biochem but I have planned/taken genetics, cell bio, microbio, ochem 1, 2 semesters of general bio and 2 semesters of general chem, med term, med ethics, anatomy, physiology, and most other pre-reqs. My main issue is that I have AP credit for statistics that my university accepts for my BS degree but I have noticed that there are some PA schools that do not accept that. I am also extremely involved  and by the time I apply, I will have a high number of service/leadership hours (President of my schools Pre-PA Association, chapter correspondent and philanthropy committee for my sorority, recruitment chair for the universities Relay for Life, and involved in other orgs). I have worked as a nursing assistant at the city's major hospital for over a year and I am seeking another job as a scribe in the ER. I have not begun shadowing yet because of COVID affecting my summer opportunities. 
      If you have experience in applying or likes/dislikes of literally any schools, I would appreciate it! I am not trying to decide on a school right now, I am simply trying to gain insight on potential schools to apply to since the ones near me are not options (Ohio/Michigan area). I have started a detailed list of schools I have researched, but I am struggling to find realistic options and those that I would be able to apply to.
      Thanks!

      Hello!
      I am a Pre-PA applying for the second time this cycle. 
      I took 3 science classes this spring to boost my gpa, which is what held me back last year. I'm worried it won't be enough, so I'm considering taking an online pathology course. I found that the University of Minnesota offers it. Has anyone taken this course from this institution? Did you take it else where? Is there another science online course you took in the summer?
       
      Thank you in advance,
      Karina

      Hello Everyone,
      Is anyone aware of any virtual shadowing opportunities through zoom or any other video platform during this COVID-19 Pandemic?

      I'm trying to decide whether Abnormal Psychology or Lifespan Human Growth & Development would be a better second psychology course to take. I've looked at my top programs and either they don't mention which is better or they mention both. Anyone willing to tell me which one would look better to admission panels? Which is most helpful when becoming a PA? Which one would be more interesting? I've included course descriptions below. The Abnormal Psychology course does have a higher course number, if that matters. 
      Abnormal Psychology: An introduction to the psychological science of mental disorders including problems of emotion, mood, mind, schizophrenia and personality disorders. Diagnosis and treatment will also be considered.
      Lifespan Human Growth and Development: A multidimensional approach to studying human growth and development across the lifespan involving theory, research, and practical applications.
