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.

Just applied to Rush and haven't been verified yet. Am I too late?

Their application deadline is October 1! So no, just depends on how strong of an applicant you are. I don't think it's ever too late as long as you meet that hard deadline.

For those waitlisted, we don’t have to accept a spot on the waitlist. We are automatically put on it and only email if we wish to be removed correct?

The email i received made it sound like you had to tell them weather you wanted to be on the "alternate accepted" list or not

Thanks everyone! Definitely a surreal and humbling experience getting an acceptance letter. I'm hopeful you all will get the same experience in the near future. Also, please don't compare yourself with my stats. The admissions committee has a very holistic approach, and more importantly, we're more than just numbers! We have our own unique stories, anecdotes, and journeys towards medicine and the PA profession. Anyways, hope this helps.

cumulative GPA: ***

science GPA: ***

PCE: ***

General interview tips: 1) Have solid answers to questions like "why do you want to become a PA?", "why do you want to attend our school?", and "what qualities do you possess that make you a competitive PA applicant?". 2) BE YOURSELF. The MMI is moreso designed to test HOW you think than WHAT you know about medicine. I didn't do this, but you can look up medical ethics Q&As online for prep as you see fit. 3) BE REAL. Have genuine questions for the faculty and current students. They can sense if you're asking questions simply to impress them.

Thank you! Also was it a virtual interview or in person?

Hey fellow applicants! Congratulations to those of you who have been accepted/interviewed! I am going to hit the 8 week verified mark tomorrow (Verified 6/17). I haven't heard anything yet and was wondering if I should reach out or not to the program? I suppose I am just incredibly anxious but I also don't want to minimize my efforts. Thoughts? Cheering for all of you!

I was also verified on the same day (program confirmation email) and haven’t heard anything. Let me know if you end up emailing them!

I honestly wouldn’t because their confirmation email explicitly asks you not to reach out for further status updates. I got my interview waitlist email at 8 weeks on the dot.

Waiting sucks and I feel your pain. Hang in there!
