What should I do if I never received a confirmation email from them? My application was verified on 5/9.... Is there a person I can email from that school to verify? I received confirmation from all 6 other schools I applied to.

I would say to email the school to double check that they received it but also check your spam folder because I’ve heard some people say that their confirmation emails get put there since they’re automated.

Random question and I know I'm thinking way too far in advance...

Once we get our interview invites, did you think we are expected for all four days in January or just one of the four? I've seen "and" and I've seen "or"...

Good luck everyone!

How competitive of a school is this. I applied end of May I was confirmed. Just waiting to here back for an interview. When do they usually send stuff out? Also how has covid impacted your learning?

They aren’t rolling admissions, so every applicant that is selected for an interview will hear the same day regardless of application submission date. The tentative date should be posted on their website. 
 

The class before me moved online for a bit. However the program director is keeping all things in-person for the fall semester.

The interview process was very well organized in my opinion. We were required to take a 4 hour PA-CAT exam in addition to writing an essay. Otherwise no additional testing.

@PA2020MC Would you mind sharing if you had interviewed with the program last cycle and what were your stats? Thanks 

Hi! I did not have an interview and at the time my stats were different then they are now but I’m pretty sure I just met the minimum requirements and had about 6000 hours.

I was planning on taking the PA-CAT for another school so I guess that’s good then. How was your experience taking it? I’m a bit nervous.

Thank you for answering. The essay was on the computer or on paper? Also, did you take the PA-CAT on the interview date and on the campus?
