What are your stats? When did you apply? In state or out of state?

I applied in May. Im an out of state applicant Out-of-state applicant, I did live in florida for a couple years though. cGPA:3.3 SGPA: 3.7   TBH I really liked this program becaause they WERE NOT picky about the numbers. The admissions board seemed more interesed in me as person and making sure I was a good fit for their program. They obviously do look to make sure you can be successful in their program, but your character seemed to be what they cared about the most. IDK if thats just my opnion so take that with a grain of salt!

When you all sent in your requested documents ahead of your interviews, did you get any sort of confirmation that the program received them? I had been asked for a few updates/documents prior to receiving an interview invite and never got confirmation emails back, so I wasn't exactly expecting one for the interview documents, but now I'm paranoid lol!

I only received a reply bc I had said something in the email along with the attachment, but no confirmation! You should be good, Ms Kays is receiving a bunch of emails on top of reviewing applications! Best of wishes to you 🙂

Does anyone know how often they interview? Mine is Oct 12/13th so I was curious when the next session was after the ones last week 

My interview is scheduled for September 14th and 15th, so I think they do interviews every two weeks until December-ish.

Does anyone know if you don’t hear back after an interview if that means you will likely be rejected in December unless those accepted do not accept the offer? 

From what I understood at orientation is that those accepted the weekend after the interview were considered “early acceptance” and only 2-3 candidates per interview session will get this. (I also remember them saying they will have 7 total interview sessions) I also understood that they will continue to call and accept people from all the different interview dates up until mid December. So if you interviewed in September you could get accepted anytime from then until mid December. That was my understanding. Anyone can correct me if I am wrong.

Basically spot on, they also said there will be a week in October when they send out a few additionall offers as well.

Having to wait in limbo until December would be tough. Especially if you got into a school that starts in January.

I have literally heard NOTHING since submitting my application June 4th. Is it reasonable to ask for an update at this point? 

Considering you received a confirmation email then your app is “under review.” So if you email them, I feel as if you will get a standardized reply. You should def check out their info session this Friday and ask then. I know this waiting process is tedious, we’re alll going through it, but don’t let it take over your life. Find some hobbies that make you youuu to distract you from all of this while continuing to accrue hours for PA school. Feel free to message me if you want to vent/express some more. Best wishes 😊

This was definitely my experience during my interview yesterday. It truly felt like a conversation and less like a strict interview. They knew everything about my CASPA, but also asked some great questions about my experiences and who I am, and I felt very confident that they looked past the hard stats and really saw us as people, and not application packets.

This is my current situation! Really hoping to hear back sooner than December! UF was my top choice before, but it is without a doubt my top choice after orientation and interviewing!

      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!
