So it looks like the general consensus for interview invites is October 18th? Has anybody else received an email about interviews?

I do not have general chemistry II, but I have organic and general chem I.  Last 60 credit hours are about 3.1 and I have been a respiratory therapist for 8 years full time. Am i going to be rejected because I dont have chem II?!  I am so nervous.

Did you fill out the PA petition form? If not, you can fill that out to try and get organic to be substituted. The form is right on their website!

If this helps...I received an email saying I was missing a prerequisite (Bio2) they asked me to provide further information. I know they have mentioned this particular class cannot be substituted so the fact that they’re inquiring makes me think if you’re missing something they will follow up.

Just an FYI. The petition form was due on 9/1.  Mine was rejected because I did not submit by then, but I didn't even know I was missing anything until after 9/1.  My fault for not being more vigilant in my application.

Did everyone else who applied to this school receive an email notification about their application being received, in the process of being verified, etc.? The reason I ask is because I applied (and my application verified by CASPA) prior to the application deadline, but I haven't received any communication at all from the school, so I'm not sure if that's a bad sign...

Yes, I received an email a couple days after applying that they received my application and it had been verified. Check your spam mail.

Hmmm, I just checked my spam folder but there's nothing in there from the program. I hope that doesn't mean that my application was considered incomplete/ineligible...

Yeah I received a email saying that my app was verified as well, this was back in June though.

Was the email from CASPA or from the program itself?

Does anyone know if there's an admissions officer to contact for matters related to our application? Or should we just call the Office of Graduate and Continuing Studies and go from there? (I see that there are several admissions counselors listed on the OGCS's website)

I'd probably go with either this number:

Contact the Office of 
Graduate and Continuing Studies
(813) 258-7409

 

or this one

Graduate Students (Domestic and International)
Contact Graduate Admissions
Phone: (813) 253-6249
Fax: (813) 258-7451
Email: grad@ut.edu

Hopefully that is a direct line to someone so you can get to the bottom of this b/c you applied on time and received an email from CASPA saying that the application and the payment went through right?

Couldn't have said it better myself. These past 3 months waiting have been beyond long.  The school looks amazing from the pics on their web page. Hoping & praying this is the program I'm admitted to🙌I'm just ready to get started

Not to beat a dead horse, but did you guys hear back from the program specifically after you submitted your applications?

Yes. I submitted 5/31 and was verified 6/23. Received an email from UTampa 6/24 indicating they had received my verified application and said they would review my application “over the coming months”.

Does anyone else find it a bit daunting that they only interview 120 people? I did not know that! I wonder how many apply...

Hmm....I’m not sure how many they interviewed last year. Program typically interview 3x the seats offered. I interviewed at another program with 40 seats available and 120 total were interviewed.
