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.

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! 🙂

      There is an awesome organization called ThePAC (Physician Assistants of Color) that holds diversity events in multiple cities across the U.S. The next one will be in Detroit, Michigan on September 28, 2019. The event is a great opportunity for all three levels of the profession! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/thepac-takes-detroit-tickets-70091765357
      Pre-PAs get to talk directly to program directors from the local/surrounding region (this event will have 7), and get specific advice about their application profile from programs directly as well as experienced PA students and PA-Cs. 
      PA-S  and PA-C get to fraternize and network with each other as well as tap into resources such as job recruiters, financial advisors, and transition to practice information. 
      There are always lots of giveaways such as medical equipment, PANCE/PANRE prep, discounts on scrub companies, and more. 
      This event is open to any and everyone no matter the race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, etc. 
      If you cannot attend this event, give them a follow on IG @thepa.c or FB 'Physician Assistants of Color' so you can get notified of when the next event/location will be.

      I’ve recently been offered a position as a dialysis tech in an outpatient center. I shadowed the other day and the staff seamed friendly. My main duties would be weighing patients, cannulating them and setting up the machines, drawing labs, and monitoring their vitals throughout treatment. This all would be under the supervisions of an RN. I would work 8 and 10 hour shifts. I was hoping someone who has worked as a dialysis tech or knows someone who has could give me feedback about their experiences. I do already have 2 years experience volunteering as an EMT-A on a fairly busy service and plan on continuing to do so.  
       
      I have also been invited to interview for a medical assistant position at an urgent care, but the interview is after the deadline to decide if I’m going to accept the dialysis position. 
       
      The pros I see in working as a dialysis tech: Getting to know my patients and their cases. Experience in the chronic disease side of medicine. 
       
      Cons: It’s could be repetitive work and I would really only learn about kidney disease.

      I just had all of my transcripts uploaded by CASPA. And, I’ve approved them, but do I have to match the prerequisites to the programs or will CASPA do that for me if I opt out? Thx
