hey guys! 

In the documents section in CASPA, for resume/CV, what are you including?? cover letter, resume and references or??? 

Good luck to everyone!

Hey, I’m personally just including exactly what they asked for, which is the resume/CV (one page). If you google “resumes for PA school” or something to that effect, you’ll find some examples of what that would look like! Good luck to you also!

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

I have another question if anybody can help. I am doing the supplemental application and it says that transcripts need to be sent directly to UF admissions. Does this mean that they want new ones plus the ones from CASPA ?. So double transcripts ? 

I don't remember seeing this at all. I didn't send my transcripts directly to UF, only to CASPA. It might say if you're accepted, you need to send them directly to UF. Or some other situation. But let us know!

Just started my supplemental application, on the instructions it says to select the "Physician Assistant" program, but the closest I can find is "Masters of Medical Sciences" is this the correct one?

There should be an option to select "Physician Assistant" and term "Summer B 2021." Which link did you use to access the supplemental application? It should be this one: https://www.applyweb.com/uflprof/index.ftl 

Good luck!

On the supplemental application, what does "Indicate Your Undergraduate Specialization" mean? 

"A specialization is a focused area of study of attached to a specific major, with specific coursework beyond major requirements. A specialization is a focused area of study attached to a specific major, and is in addition to course requirements for the major." Based what I believe it means

hey everyone! how soon after you applied did you receive a confirmation email? 

I sent my verified CASPA app to UF on May 11th, and I received an email on May 19th stating that they had received my application and forwarded it to the admissions committee for review. My GRE had already been sent, and I took the CASPer on May 7th. I haven't heard anything since, but looking at last year's cycle forum, it looks like they start contacting applications in late summer!

Just got an email from UF stating my application completed the initial review, and it has been forwarded for "second level evaluation" by the Adcom! Fingers crossed for an interview!

That’s great! Are all of your evals complete? I got my “received” email on Monday. CASPA verified 6/2. I am waiting for one of five evals.

I am very fortunate to work in the operating room with some Gator alumni/ former UF attendings so I took all I could get. Good luck!

Congrats! How long does it take them to get CASPer results, do you know? I can't take it until July 7th and I don't want it to negatively affect my chances of getting in...I know their priority deadline is August 1st though so hopefully that will still be ok

I took the CASPer on May 7th, and they said it would take 3 weeks for the results to be sent to programs, but my CASPer profile said "Scores delivered" when I checked after 2 weeks - I have no idea when they were actually sent, and CASPer doesn't tell you and I never received confirmation from any of the programs that they specifically received my scores, just that my apps were complete or being reviewed.

I would assume that they want a copy for their own records in addition to what you did for CASPA, but you could always email someone from admissions for clarification. It never hurts to double-check!

      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!

      Hi all, 
      I'm a new grad starting out in ambulatory surgery-- I'm super excited because I love being hands on in the operating room. I was just wondering if any of the Surgical PAs could give some insights about ambulatory surgery? The site I'm going to be working at has 12 surgical subspecialities (list below). From what I gathered through the interview process, I'll be able to get experience in all of them. That being said I'm worried about being prepared and knowledgeable for cases. Anyone have any tips of how to study up, or even get more comfortable once starting? I have a little over a month before start date so any resources are welcome. Thanks in advance!
      List of subspecialities/ topics to brush up on🤯🥴: 
       
      Bariatric surgery
      Breast surgery
      Colorectal surgery
      General surgery
      Head and neck surgery
      Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery
      Neurosurgery
      Ophthalmologic surgery
      Orthopedic surgery
      Pediatric surgery
      Podiatric surgery
      Sports medicine surgery
      Urologic surgery
      Vascular surgery
