Hi, everyone! 

I emailed Rush asking about my position on the alternate acceptance waitlist back in October. They told me they aren't able to provide any specific information. Have anyone heard any other information if you were also placed on the alternate acceptance list? Or anyone from last year do you know how many people were placed on the waitlist and how many they ended up accepting?

 

Thanks!!

I've heard from multiple sources saying that they actually take a decent amount of waitlisted individuals. A current PA student told me half her class was from the waitlist. I'm also waitlisted so crossing my fingers for us!

Yeah Im not too thrilled about the whole online interviews, and I know its cliche to say this but just be yourself. Theres so many articles online telling you how to act and how to answer certain ques

I called admissions last week and spoke with Stacy who was super helpful. I had called not to ask about my status but to ask when we can expect to here back considering it’s been 16 weeks for me since

Got accepted to the program. Interviewed on 7/27, got my offer on 8/4.

If you check out the thread from last year, some people said they received a email about their position on the waitlist around late december. Those that were in the 25% percentile were told Where they stood, whereas those below it didnt get a specific range. I’m expecting emails right before christmas for updates.

Congrats! Cool to hear there are still interview invites going out. 

Just emailed the program last night to notify them that I finished one of my In-progress prereqs. I haven’t heard anything back about my application thus far since applying. Have a nice Friday everyone.

Application submitted: May 13

Verified: June 12

Status Update October 16th: "we would like to include you in a pool of interview wait list candidates"

Is there hope for me?

Not to be negative but more realistic. I got the same email as well. And if you think about if there are any spots left open the waitlisted candidates from interviews are first in line then its the waitlist to interview. So I dont even know if they reach the waitlist to interview candidates. Im not getting my hopes up but i guess you really dont know what can happen wish you best of luck though.

Should I email the school after I completed a prerequisite? 

Don’t know if this helps you or if it varies case by case, but I just did so last week and got this in response: 

Thank you for your continued interest in the Rush University PA Program and for the updates.  At this time, we do not require any further information from you; however, if a seat is offered to you, final transcripts will be required at that time. I hope this helps but please let us know if you have any questions.”

Hey Everyone!

I reached out to the admissions office around Christmas asking about any updates on the alternate acceptance list I was placed on after my interview in October. They said at the time they are still compiling results from the previous interview and I know people said they have interviews on the 13th so I am assuming after that interview an update will be provided. They also reiterated that we wont received exact waitlist positions but quartile information will be given out at a later date. So fingers crossed this January 13th is the last interview date and will hear soon after for those placed on the alternate acceptance list. 

Good luck to everyone with upcoming interviews!!
