Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think it will happen today... Probably next week.

Hang in there every one! I was accepted last year and can relate to the waiting anxiety. This is a crazy year for everyone but I’m sure you will all hear back soon :)

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.

The program is amazing!! Honestly, the best advice I can give is be yourself during interviews. I know that sounds cliche, but for this program it really matters. If you get an interview, then they already like you on paper. During interviews they mostly want to know who you are and what type of provider you would be. They are really big on our mission statement so make sure you know what we are all about! Good luck!!

Well hello there fellow classmate!  Hang in there folks!  It's definitely a stressful time!  Many of the staff are still working from home, so it may take a little longer to get the interview invitations sent.  In the meantime, I posted some interview tips based on my interview and subsequent acceptance to Utah last year.  I think it's on page 3 for reference.  Good luck everyone!  Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.

I'm excitedly awaiting an email.  It's crazy to think that it is already October.  Good luck to everyone!

I'm curious, how many of you are from Utah?

I'm from Utah too! Try not to stress, everyone! I know it seems impossible, but we are all in the same boat! Like pathgirl20 said, it is likely taking a little longer due to strain from COVID. I think everyone everywhere is kind of setting their hair on fire this year. I am sure we will hear back soon. I am as impatient as they come, but we all just have to try to remain positive and hopeful!! Good luck everyone!

Hello friends! 

I'm a current first year PA student at UPAP! I just wanted to hop on here real quick and let you guys know about a resource for the application cycle. We have an email account set up where you can address questions for current students. It's run by a collection of first year students so if you have specific concerns, questions about the area, questions about the program, etc this is a great place to look! The email is upapmentor@yahoo.com

Good luck with the upcoming interviews, it's a scary but very exciting time and I'll tell you all it is very worth it! 

Hope to see some of you next year!

I just barely found this site and this forum, but I am so glad that other people are in the same boat. I check my e-mail about every 10 minutes and would be lying if I said this week didn't give me a little bit of anxiety.
