ACCEPTED TO ARCADIA UNIVERSITY!!!!! Holy sh*t best day of my life. You all are next, I can’t wait to meet all of you amazing individuals!!

Accepted to Glenside!!  🙂

Hi guys! I'm a current student in didactic, if anyone has any questions about the program! 🙂 I honestly think that the application process was awful so if there are any burning questions or ways that I can relieve some anxiety, I'd be happy to do so! 

When do they start pulling people off the waitlist?

Are you at the Glenside or Christiana campus?

I dont think anyone has yet. I would love to get an update

So many getting accepted to multiple schools and withholding seats while waiting to hear from their top choice resulted in longer and longer time on the waitlist for those really wish to get accepted to these programs

Hi Everyone! 
My interview is tomorrow and I’m wondering if anyone has some tips? I’m nervous about how much is going to be asked/covered in such a short interview! 

It was such a laid back and casual interview
Just look over your Caspa application and refresh the things you’ve done

Has anybody asked/does anybody know whether the 3D anatomy visualization table and cadaver lab are at both campuses or just one campus?

I believe I asked this question and they said they had the same/very similar resources at both campuses. (Which includes the anatomage tables.)

I asked them in my interview today! There are two Anatomage tables at each campus, but with the pandemic I was told that students also have remote access to Anatomage on laptops, etc. I didn’t ask about the cadaver lab though... I totally forgot.

Hope this helps!

Probably not until after the first of the year. I got pulled off in February after interviewing mid September.

I'm at the Glenside campus.

thank you for this! I also interviewed this past september and I've been so anxious after being waitlisted but this gives me hope!

This is from the informational session:

Q: I read that the waitlist is also rolling basis. Does this mean whoever accepts a spot on the waitlist first will be selected before someone who accepts a spot on the waitlist later on?

Renee Langstaff-PA-C     
A: Not necessarily. We use an objective means to score each applicant and rely on those scores to put out offers.

My application was received officially by Arcadia on the 31st of August for the dual program, received an essay invite today! (asking why I want to do an MPH essentially) 

I received this too! Do you know if they typically send essay invites after applying? I hadn’t heard anything from them in a while so I’m hoping this is good news.

I'm not sure if everyone gets one! But it seems like other people on here also received the essay invite. I don't think anyone has gotten interviews yet if they applied to the dual program.

I tried requesting to be a part of their class of 2023 page in September and they still haven’t accepted me so I’m not sure when they plan to be active on fb!

Can you post the link for the Facebook group?? Thanks!

What’s the environment like, are the students supportive of each other, are the faculty available to students? Just trying to get a feel for the program culture.

I was disappointed there wasn’t more of an opportunity to interact with current students in the interview process.
