I applied July 29 and received an email stating my applications were received about a week later. The rule of thumb I’ve heard is to contact the programs if you don’t hear back from them after a month or so unless your application is being reviewed. Sending updates is a good way to reach out the them!

Well I received an email that my application was received. But I did not receive an email saying I've been moved onto the "secondary review" or whatever. And I definitely haven't gotten a rejection OR interview. So it's like I'm dead in the water right now.

Waiting to hear back from the programs is stressful. It’s a long mental game to deal with. In most cases, programs will mention your status if you send them an update email.

I submitted August 4th and verified August 6th. I got an email stating they received my application and that it was under review on August 12th. I know I submitted late and I just wanted to hear what you guys think my chances are of getting an interview. I know submitting late reduces my chances. I kept holding out for a test date at an actual testing center for the GRE because I didn't like the idea of taking it at home. Turns out I had to just break down and take it at home. I know the odds are probably against me, but I just really really want to get into PA school! This is my first year applying.

Degree: Exercise Physiology at FSU (Current: last semester- have to take biochem ugh)

Prerequisites: 4.0- Some were taken at a community college that I attended for 2 years to get my A.A

CASPA GPA: 3.96 ( I have only ever had one B in my whole life and it was in dual enrollment! I will never forgive myself!)

Science GPA: 4.0

GRE: 302 (152 verbal 150 quant 4.5 writing)

PCE: ~2,759 hours (1,904 chiropractic assistant, 855 PCA at hospital cardiovascular lab)

Volunteer: 77 hours

Had my interview today and it was a really great experience. The faculty and staff were so nice and the interviewers were very conversational (as opposed to feeling like you’re being interrogated). I felt like they really just wanted to know me. Hopefully going to hear back from them soon!

I can second this as I had my interview yesterday! Seriously, such a great experience.

This is great! UF is my top choice, and I'm interviewing in a week and a half! Feeling a little more relaxed hearing this. Best of luck to the both of you, I hope you hear back soon!

The orientation day was very informative. The whole day is geared to learning about the program. They give you a tour, talk about the curriculum, financial aid, etc. There’s also a q&a session with current and former students. There’s one group discussion and writing activity, but nothing to stress about!

      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!
