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

For anyone accepted, can you tell me about the interview process? Overall thoughts? Things that tripped you up? General vibe?

Definitely know why you want to be a PA (sounds obvious but make sure you can verbalize it). They wanted to know how you handle stress and what you do to de-stress. One interviewer asked me an ethical question, so stay strong on your point of view because she tried to get me to cave. Overall though it was really more conversational than being drilled. Very relaxed and they genuinely just wanted to get to know me. Oh, make sure you ask them questions to show you’re interested! Good luck!

Yeah, I agree with @LianaJawad. Be well versed in the bread and butter questions of PA interviews - why you want to be a PA, why PA versus MD/NP, challenges you might face as a PA, etc. These are questions you’ll see in any interview though, not specific questions to UF.

The interview was definitely a conversation, I was talking about it between interviews with the other candidates because I was so pleasantly surprised at how fun it was. The faculty I interviewed with truly did want to get to know me as a person. It was very cool to hear personal stories and experiences from them, hear their opinions on questions they had asked me, etc. I also had ethical questions where I talked about both points of view, but ultimately picked a side and backed it up under pressure.

It was a long two days between orientation and interviewing, but well worth it. They answered all the questions I had going in, plus a ton of questions I didn’t even know I had. The current students were all very candid about their experiences, too.

For those who interviewed, what were your times, and how long were the sessions? I am three hours behind Florida and trying to form a plan for where I should do my calls.

Interviews are timed at 20 minutes. When you are invited for an interview, Ms. Kays will send you an email with your scheduled interview times (everyone gets three interviews). Everyone is required to login to zoom at 0745 or 1245 EST (depending on what interview session you get) to check-in. Afterward, you only need to be on the zoom call 10 minutes before each of your interviews begin, though I stayed on the zoom call and spoke with the other people interviewing.

Congratulations to everyone accepted so far! I received an email today granting me an interview, contingent on the evaluation of my Gen Chem syllabi. Fingers crossed for good news tomorrow or early next week 🙂 For those wondering, I took Casper first week of May, submitted my CASPA app in mid May, received application confirmation email 5/26, and received the second level evaluation email 6/15.

Can anyone help me please ASAP. I tried emailing Karen because my UF orientation packet has been lost in the mail. Can anyone PM me with what is in the packet and how important is the information in the packet?

 

Or if anyone having orientation on 9/28 so this upcoming monday, could contact me. If anyone can help me out, that would be greatly appreciated 🙌🏽

Messaged you.

Same thing happened to me, don’t sweat it it’s not a big deal. It has zero consequence to you interview if you don’t have it. She’ll get back to you though she’s pretty good about it.

Congratulations!! Do you mine sharing your dates about when you applied/heard info back?

Thanks! I don’t mind sharing that info. They received my CASPA app on 5/19. I got the forward to the second level of evaluation on 6/16, the interview offer contingent on my course syllabi on 9/24, and then the call on 10/1.

Hi everyone! I was just checking to see if anyone who applied in August has heard anything? I received an email August 10th saying that they had received my application, but haven’t heard anything since. Just curious if anyone from August has gotten an interview or a secondary review email? Thanks!

Hi! I applied in June and haven’t heard anything. But that doesn’t mean we won’t hear soon! I saw that last year people got interviews without getting the secondary review email. I think its not necessarily in chronological order and like some people said above, they may interview candidates who are the “best of the best” first and then keep sifting through the applications. The waiting game sucks! But the best we can do is stay positive! Hoping for some news this week! We got this.

Has anyone who submitted in July heard back yet? This is driving me crazy !

I submitted 07/14/20 and today around 1700 I received an secondary review email stating:

"The Admissions Committee has completed their initial review of your application and it has been forwarded for second level evaluation by members of the Admissions Committee."

Darn I applied 7/10 and got the moving into initial review email but since then haven’t heard anything either way. Staying hopeful though since I haven’t received a flat out rejection yet 🤞🏽

I submitted my application 5/28 and got the second level evaluation email yesterday 10/6, so there’s still hope for everyone! I’ve already been accepted to my top choice program but I thought I was out of the running for UF based on the lack of news over the past several months.

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?

I interviewed on 8/31 and 9/1 and still haven’t heard back, but it’s ok! If you remember they said they accept people all the way into December, and they start to make more acceptance calls in October. So we are really close! You got this! We can wait it out together 🙂 haha

      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!
