Just got an email informing me that the admissions committee has made all offers required to fill the program and that I'm on the waitlist. Interviewed 10/5

Hope you get pulled off the waitlist!

Am I the only one that's surprised that they already made all the offers since I thought they were still going to hold interviews till the end of this month? I was placed in the hold category after my interview in September and I haven't heard anything else which makes me wonder if I'm now in the rejected pile. 😕

Current LH student here: Just to let you guys know to help with your decision making, LH does not have enough clinical rotation sites for the students currently in the program. Majority of the clinica

I’ll be the first to say it. This is sounding really bad.

Hello all! I just made a Facebook page for all accepted students, the link is below! Congrats to everyone accepted and good to luck to those still waiting to hear or waiting on an interview! https:

I am feeling the same! I was also put on hold after my September interview so I have no idea where I stand now. They said most would be placed on hold but not hearing about a waitlist has me very nervous.

I'm not sure if being on the waitlist is the same as being on hold either 😕 This is the email I got though, if you want to compare it with the one that you received for the hold!

Hello and I hope your year is going well so far,

This is a notification from the Admissions Committee of Lock Haven University's Physician Assistant Program. I am writing to update you on your status as a candidate for our program.  As I am sure you are aware the candidate pool for admissions into Lock Haven’s PA program was very competitive.  Just the fact that you received an interview placed you high among all candidates for the program.   

At this point the admissions committee has made offers required to fill our program but you are among the top candidates if a seat becomes available.  We sometimes have students that choose to decline our offer to complete their degree elsewhere.  The admissions committee has developed a short list of applicants that are extremely qualified for the program and may be offered admission in the event that an opening occurs.  We have placed you on this list and you will be notified via email of any changes in your status as we continue through the next few months.  If you are not interested in remaining on this list please let me know.  If a seat becomes available, I will contact you immediately to make an offer.   

Sincerely,

Dr. Amber O'Brien, PA-C, Assistant Professor

How did you guys figure out which campus you've been admitted to? When I logged in, I see Clearfield campus but that wasn't my 1st or 2nd choice and I didn't receive an email saying I didn't get my 1st and 2nd choice

I got the acceptance letter in the mail with the campus location.

I got the email from Lori that Clearfield and Coudersport were my only options. I would email her to clarify.

So they just notified me today that I’m one of their candidates at the top of their wait/short list too. I knew this might happen, especially since I knew their seats where full before I interviewed on Nov 9th. Its the best thing that could happen I suppose, but I wanna get in sooo badly. Never been stressed out more in my life.

Does anyone know if they release a ranked waitlist? I vaguely remember them saying something about having a ranked list.

I spoke to Lori today. They said at the interview that we would be able to see what number we were in line. Lori said today that she won't be able to tell us that information until January since they still have more interviews. So if you don't hear any more by January you should be able to find that out! 

 

Also, my email also said Top of the Waitlist/Short list. Is this the generic email they send out for all the waitlisted candidates? Anyone know how many they put on the wait list and how it is ranked? Like is it first come first serve or would they put someone higher on the list who may be more qualified?

For admitted students, what is the next steps after paying the deposit? I can't find that information on their website

A few days after paying, I received an email informing me to create a lock haven account. After that, I have been waiting for further instruction.
