Hey everyone. I submitted my CASPA on 6/8 and it was verified on 6/12. I submitted my supplemental well before my CASPA. On 8/10, UF sent me an email saying I passed the second level of evaluation. I got offered an interview via phone call on 9/21. My interview days were 9/28 and 9/30. Still waiting to hear back but I'm hopeful! Hopefully this helps someone out! Anyone from that interview day hear anything back yet?

Overall GPA: 3.51

Science GPA: 3.39

GRE: 155 Q, 154 V, 4.0 writing

patient care hours: 8000+

I’m in the same boat. I interviewed on 09/28-09/29, and I’m trying to stay hopeful. I think I remember Ms. Patton saying most people will hear back in December, some will hear back in mid October, and very few may hear back within a couple of days after the interview (those are early decision).

I didn’t hear anything either! No news is good news I guess, maybe tomorrow is our day!    But this is how I’ve been feeling

I interviewed at UF last year and know a handful of students who just started and a few rising second years. I would not stress if you have not received a secondary review email. Last year, some peopl

Unsure if just me, but anxiously waiting to hear more news today (either good or bad). Congratulations on those who have been accepted already! And for those waiting to hear back today, sending you al

Hey everyone! Has anyone submitted in June/early july not heard any news yet, not even a second level eval? Trying to stay hopeful 😉 I know Florida holds a lot of interviews but starting to get discouraged! 

Same here! Some sort of update would be nice. Have you emailed them?

Hi everyone, I interviewed on 9/28- 9/30 and received an acceptance call on 10/5. I will definitely be attending and plan on sending in my seat deposit this week! Let me know if anyone has any questions. 

Congrats! I interviewed those same days and was accepted as well! I'm excited! I am hoping they start a Facebook group for students. I have not heart about one yet.

Congratulations! Interviewed on Oct. 12th and 13th and I'm so nervous/excited to hear back. This program is one of a kind! Trying to stay sane! haha

Hey everybody, congrats on those who recently got in! I interviewed mid October and see people getting in from even earlier. I have been accepted to a school that starts in January and was wondering if you all thought it would be ok to email asking potentially for a decision due to the timing of other acceptances?

Personally, i don’t think you should. I was in a similar situation. A lot of time people end up losing their deposits for reasons like this but it’s just a risk that comes with applying for PA school. Someone else may disagree tho

I agree. I wouldn’t. There are a lot of people in your shoes I would imagine.

Don't get too stressed. Everything that was useful in the packet should have been emailed to you. Other than that, you may have missed out on a cute packet of post-its. Otherwise, congrats on your interview. Don't be shy. Converse with everyone while you have downtime between your MMIs. It will help keep you social and help to fight your nerves.

      Hi guys, 
      I didn't see a new thread. Hope this helps you guys. Just like in previous years they are moving forward, but it may look a bit different because COVID seems to be slowing down. Here's the email I received on 5/11/2021. I submitted my application on 5/3/2021 and verified on 5/11/2021. 
       
      Thank you for applying to the Radford University Carilion PA program. This email is to let you know that your application is complete, has been marked as "Verified", and we have received your RU supplemental application. Your application will be put in a queue to be reviewed. You may still provide updates to your application through the CASPA website.
      Once applications are reviewed, we will make decisions on whom to interview. Our earliest interview dates will be in September. As we don't yet have exact dates selected for interviews, we will likely make offers for interviews in early July at the soonest.
      We will send out periodic updates to keep you apprised of your status. However, with the necessary changes in how we accomplish our tasks, those updates may not be as frequent as we would like them to be. We are happy to answer any questions that come up, and you are welcome to email me at rhadley1@radford.edu.
      Thank you,
      Bob Hadley

      Hey everyone, there are still tickets available for those who are interested in the Loma Linda PA program. We have changed our event from zoom to being ON CAMPUS. There will be prizes raffled off. Due to some restrictions still being in place, the tickets that are being sold will only allow one person per ticket. More info on the flyer and event bright website. Thank you so much! Hope to see you there. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/llus-3rd-annual-pre-pa-conference-tickets-145958073527

      Hey y'all so I am a sophomore in undergrad and in the process of just starting to get PCE, shadow, and volunteer hours and etc, but I am super stressed out because I am itching to start getting PCE hours except its so difficult while in school. I was thinking about becoming an EMT and working for 2 years after I graduate but I wasn't sure if being an EMT is considered PCE among most colleges, does anyone know? (I also tried to work as a caregiver over summer and that job isn't for me) 
       
      Also, I'm trying to compile a list of PA schools to apply to, so if anyone has any recommendations for schools on the east coast please let me know! 🙂

      Hi everyone!
      I am currently in my third semester of didactic year and will be starting clinical rotations in the fall. My family is moving to Tampa and I was hoping to get a rotation set up in the area. I am looking for a preceptor in family or internal medicine, pediatrics, behavioral, women's health, or emergency medicine.
      If you know any contacts or other forums I could reach out to please let me know, thank you!
