I edited my post, sorry. There is an orientation August 31st. Was told interviews occur over a 2 day period- you randomly get Sept 1st or 2nd for the official interview. I got the 2nd.

Sorry, forgot to include in my original post. I was in shock from the call that I missed details. 5000 total!  I gave a breakdown of them in my original post.

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 people received these early, some people received them 2-3 months after submitting and then received an interview days later, and some people did not receive them at all and still received an interview. I know this was a similar trend in the year before. I’m not entirely sure why or who gets secondary review emails, but it seems random/inconsistent with interview offers. It is still very early in the process 🙂

Hey y'all!

Just wanted to post that I received an email today around 8am MST, saying they are interested in offering me an interview contingent upon a review of my Statistics class syllabus. The end of the email said:

"Please provide this requested information to the Admissions Committee at your earliest convenience. We cannot offer you an interview until your coursework is verified."

I am hoping this means good things! I am so excited to hear back! 

Did you get an email officially notifying you of secondary review before you received the interview offer?

Yep it was a 352 number and I got the call at 4pm.  I do the same thing with spam calls.  Funny story I actually wasn't receiving any calls on my phone for weeks and didn't know it.  I went to verizon freaking out and they fixed it.  The next day I got the call.  yeesh.

Got an email from Ms. Kays this morning that my application was being reviewed, and the committee was requesting information on any additional volunteer hours I've gained since applying... ugh, UF has quickly become one of my top choice programs, fingers crossed for an interview!

My supplemental application was sent in on May 1st, and my CASPA was verified May 11th! I got an application received email on May 19th, a second level review email on June 11th, and then nothing until the additional information request this morning!

      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!
