Has anyone received a confirmation email? Other than that they received payment or that you have applied?

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!

Have you checked the school portals?  Some programs that have supplement applications use that portal to communicate through.

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.

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! 🙂

      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!!

      Hello,
      I am president of the Pre-PA club at SFSU. I am looking for shadowing opportunities here in the Bay Area. If the PA allows, I would like to share this opportunity to my club to shadow during the breaks at SFSU. Please feel free to reach out to me on here or you can follow us/DM us @sfsuppas

      Hello, 
      In my pre-pa club a member asked a question about surgery for PA’s. The question was “Is it true that in order to assist in surgery you need to do an extra year of schooling after your PA program? Do this require you to pay more for school? Is this included in your PA schooling years or would you need to reapply for that surgical year?” 
      I thought it was an excellent set of questions, which I would like more answers for.

      Hey All,
      I didn't see a thread like this so I thought I would start one!  I just got a letter of rejection for the Post-Bacc Pre med program from UVA.  I applied October 1st.
