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 everyone. I would like to hear your opinions on online lab classes due to the Covid-19 situation right now. So I’m enrolled in general chemistry with an online lab, and I am contemplating on dropping the class because I’m afraid schools won’t accept it. (Also waist of time and money) Thanks for your opinions.

      I'm looking into PA school requirements and have seen that most require Human Anatomy & lab, and Human Physiology & lab. My current university (UCSD) only offers a Human Physiology lecture course. Most of the city colleges I'm looking into in order to fulfill this pre-req only offer Human Anatomy or Human Physiology as a single course of lecture and lab, rather than having separate lecture and lab courses. Do PA schools accept lecture & lab combination courses or do they want each lecture and lab to be a separate course?

      Hi, thank you to every one who dropped by to help! Below are the science courses I took in order, with grades:
      general biology I (C- first time, A second time), general biology II (B-)
      **general chemistry I (C+), general chemistry II (C) --- both with labs
      general physiology (B)
      biochemistry (B)
      organic chem I (B-), organic chem II (B-)
      genetics (B-)
      microbiology (A)
      human anatomy (A)
      endocrinology (A)
       
      Planning on taking: immunology, human physiology, developmental biology, medical terminology OR primate anatomy 
      I'm currently a second term senior at a university, and I graduate Spring 2021. Many people advise students to not retake basic courses and focus on upper level courses, but there are also many people who suggest to retake any basic course with C grades to show PA schools that the first grades I received do not define my capability.
      Any opinion on whether I should spend extra time to retake general chemistry I and II ? If I should retake them, then should I enroll in the labs again or that won't be necessary since I already took them the first time I took the courses?
       
      Thank you again for your time!
