Well Everyone, it’s official I didn’t make it. No rejection letter yet, but, despite my best effort,  I couldn’t finish my Biochem (UNE) in time.  
I just finished last night but the transcripts won’t make it by tomorrow. I Knew I needed a few Extra days to study for the final, so it put me out of the window. At least I finished with a 93 (missed that hard A by 0.4 points) in 7.5 weeks.
Good luck out there everyone.

I submitted my application on the deadline, I know this is not ideal. I was wondering if anyone else submitted on the deadline of 9/1 and heard anything back yet?

I submitted on August 27. My advisor told me that it could be 4 to 5 weeks, so you should hear something this week or next assuming that it was verified and marked as under review.

Hi guys! I submitted my application on 08/30, verified/under review 08/31 and got an interview invite about 20 minutes ago. Hope you guys get an invite soon 🙂

Don't feel bad, your not alone. I couldn't finish my orgo chem in time, but I still received a rejection email today and no interview request. It's a bummer, but I have decided Im not giving up just yet. Plenty of great schools out there.

Does anyone know how many people have been accepted or how many have joined the Facebook page?

There are currently 57 in the Facebook group, however, there could be a couple more/less already accepted. I believe someone stated earlier there are a couple instructors or students from earlier cohorts in the Fb group as well.

Hey Everyone. I am interviewing Monday the 12th for the academic and personal interview. Wondering if anybody could give me any tips, not necessarily the questions they asked. Also, how long did it take after the interview to find out if you were accepted or denied? If anybody can please comment or pm me. I really hope I can be a part of the 2023 cohort!

Congrats Ryan!!! I’ve never had an interview so I’m no help. Maybe some YouTube videos ?! When did you submit your application?

Good luck!

Hello, Ryan! I think from interview to acceptance was ~17 days (8/11-8/28). 

And I would just practice being comfortable talking about yourself 🙂 I don't like talking about myself so I had to really prep!

Hi everyone.  I'm glad I found this thread.  I interviewed in July and have been on the waitlist since.  I finished my Biochem class (UNE) in early September and still hopeful for a phone call!  I see some people have been taken off the waitlist, but I'm wondering if anyone has been accepted?? 

Good luck to everyone (accepted, waitlisted or rejected)

How are interviews going for everyone this week?.. I had mine yesterday. 

How do you think it went? I hope it went well! Mine is tomorrow and I'm freaking out. Any last minute advice or tips?

I feel kind of neutral on how it went. I don't think it was particularly bad but I'm not super confident with it either. Time will tell. Just try to relax and take a moment to compose your answer.

Hello Everyone,

Congrats to those who got accepted. I’ve been on the waitlist since June (I think I was one of the first groups to get interviewed), and so far I haven’t been pushed off the waitlist (fingers crossed). I’m just curious to see if anyone got accepted off the waitlist? I got accepted to another program that begins in January, but I’m still trying to hold onto some hope lol (maybe...).

Congrats on the acceptance! I say go where you get accepted! Weigh out pros and cons of both schools, look at cost, time, rotations, areas you may want to specialize in, how your interviews went (personality of professors, etc) and how you think you’ll fit into the program of each. That’s awesome you’ve already gotten accepted; is there a deadline you’ve got to let them know by? Good luck making your decision!

I'm in the same boat. I feel it went well, but not anything exceptional either. Did your interview go over 30 minutes? Mine was a bit under. Not sure if that's a good thing. 🙄

Same… It was about 20 to 25 minutes.

My personal interview was right at 30 minutes but my academic one was like 10-12 minutes. Hopefully we all hear good news in the coming weeks.

That's a relief to hear. I was thinking along those lines, the academic interview will probably be more succinct than the personal - which I have yet to do. I hope all goes well and we all receive good news soon! Yale is my number one choice, and I'm honestly so happy and honored they extended an interview alone. Looking forward to the next few weeks.

Thank you! I already put the deposit down since it’s not like Yale will take me off the waitlist anytime soon haha

It’s been said some people get accepted off the waitlist the very last week of December, but there were also people who were taken off the waitlist in August last cycle so I’m wondering if anything is going to happen to the waitlist this cycle?

My academic interview was about 35 minutes. The personal one was exactly 30.

Did either of the interviewers say something like, "We hope to see you in January!" ? If so, I believe that may be a good sign.

Congrats on getting an acceptance. I'm sorry that you have been on this waitlist so long. No matter where you go I am sure you will be a great physician assistant. 🙂

That's awesome! It sounds like your interviews went really well. Hopefully we all hear good news soon 🙂
