Received an interview invite today!! I am elated!! Rejected last cycle. Anyone who has interviewed before have any advise for what to review for the basic anatomy and physiology exam we have to take??? The U is my top choice. Time to dust off the ol’ text books. Good luck everyone!!!

I was just thinking that exact same thing!!!! Wonder if that email from current students would be a good source!

Anyone still waiting?

Still waiting! I looked at last years posts and I can’t tell whether or not people were informed over more than one day. I’m trying to take it easy, no news is still good news until proven otherwise.

Rejected... Honestly, it’s my first time applying and I felt a strong applicant, i’m so confused... anyone else feeling this way? 

I am also a first time applicant and so far rejected to all the schools I applied to. I will be trying again next cycle! Don't give up!

just got my rejection too, but hopeful about other programs!

I want to add that I had a friend last year who got an interview invite after being rejected! I assume from those who declined. stay positive! If not this year (if not this program), your time will come! It’s a numbers game! 

Really? I thought once you're rejected, they don't open your application for review even if seats are open. Was this all in the same cycle of applying?

As a pleasant surprise in all this waiting I got an invite to another program but I’m keeping all my fingers and toes crossed for the U!!
 

I’m curious if any of you have had virtual interviews with other programs and if there’s any tips you can give? The idea of zoom deciding my fate makes me really anxious.

Same cycle. Idk specifics honestly. I can ask the person though!

Honestly, it’s such a great program. They’ve adapted really well to this new online/hybrid model and I am grateful everyday. The faculty is top notch and they know who they want in their program.

I haven't taken the test yet but I am planning on using Mark Neilson's Anatomy Textbook. He is the anatomy professor at the U. His Advanced TA's teach for the school of medicine and I am totally speculating but I would assume they used him or his TA's for making the test.

Where can I get this golden textbook? Lol

I wonder if they are doing notifications in chunks. Maybe they are doing some today and some another day. Still waiting on the email. This is so stressful!!

Are emails still coming through? Or should I stop checking for the night?

I’m in the same boat as you both. I’m taking a break (or at least trying to) from my email, it’s giving me too much anxiety! Good luck to those still waiting!

For those who got rejected, please don't get discouraged! I was accepted to UPAP as a third time applicant. It definitely is tough to keep going, but if you feel like it's what you're meant to do, keep pushing! I'd be happy to talk with anyone about being a reapplicant and my journey to PA school. Please reach out!

Is the exam for the interview multiple choice? What can you tell me about things to review if you remember???

Q: What's worse than waiting to find out if you got an interview?

A: Being on the alternate list and having to wait even longer to find out if you get a chance. (happened to me last year)

I feel you everyone!  Hang in there! 🙂

Did you eventually get pulled off of the alternate list and got an interview ?

@pathgirl20 Sorry, just read up on your response to another post afterwards— did you end up getting accepted ? 🙂 Also, would you recommend for those waitlisted for an interview to select the earliest date of preference or should we be flexible and say no preference ? Thank you so much!
