Submitted mine on 6/2. Still pending review. They said it usually takes about 2 weeks to complete the verification process. I was told by UNT admin office that you would be okay if application is submitted by end-ish of May. Let's hope that I can at least get an interview ūüėÉ

Do you think that sending an application after May might be pointless?? I wanted to have it in before June but ran into a few problems that delayed the process of getting in in before then!

I don’t think it would be pointless at all! Based on the thread from last cycle people submitted in late June and still got interviews. It’s still early, so depending on your stats I would try to apply this cycle so you don’t have to wait for another whole year to apply

No, I don't think it will be pointless at all. I think what they mean is we should submit it as early as we could since it's rolling admission. 

When I was interviewing candidates as a second year pharmacy student, we would interview until the very last day of deadline date.

Since deadline is September, I would say applying before July would be safe. Seems like CASPA takes about 2-3 weeks to verify and send the application to schools.

Has anyone got their CASPA verified already? I chatted with them today and was given a generic answer which was it usually will take 2 weeks so patiently wait haha

When did you submit your application? I submitted my application on May 20 and got it verified the next day!

So basically, once it was verified by CASPA on 5/15, it was sent to school and the school sent you an email stating that they're reviewing your application on 5/12? 

Did you only apply to UNT or other schools? 

That is correct. I applied to 8 others as well.

Anyone know how long it typically takes for schools to send out an interview invitation once they receive the application? 

It varies from school to school, however looking specifically at the previous UNTHSC forum from last years cycle, it seems that they would normally have sent the first round of interview invites out by now. As of now we can only speculate what is happening. Whomever is selected for an interview that is on this forum will more than likely state they received one, and with the amount of people who have replied to this thread, I would imagine that if they have sent out any interviews at least someone would have received one and would have posted it. - Isn't the anticipation marvelous?

The beauty is in the wait, no? lol Once you get an interview and get accepted, the emptiness will bore you I'm sure. haha

I imagine covid19 may have an affect in this process. We shall see.

COVID is drastically affecting their interviews this round. I have someone who works in the registrars office and he told me they are really backed up. They are still trying to figure out how to start the up coming class online as they will not be returning to campus in the fall. Also, interviews for PA school this year at HSC FW will be held over ZOOM! no in person interviews. He told me to not expect to hear anything till July.

That's actually good to hear since CASPA needs to recalculate my gpa. 

Btw, anyone else having this issue with CASPA? 

I'm having to send transcripts from multiple schools and all but one school is using letter grades with +/-. One of the schools is using a numeric grading scale. CASPA converts numeric grades into just A, B, C etc without +/- which seems very unfair. So if you have 88 (3.5ish on 4.0 scale) instead of getting a B+, you get a B which is 3.0 on CASPA gpa scale. So you just went from a B+ student to a B student... wtf? Wouldn't this be detrimental on screen process?

      I started a fiverr gig to help students applying to PA school. Rate is reasonable. I'm not looking to price gouge, but I'll spend a lot of time helping you perfect your application; so some compensation is reasonable. I was accepted to multiple schools with my first application, and I graduated from PA school in 2011.
