Got an interview invite! I’m so hype!!!! In two cycles, this is my first one and I really love what this program offers. The interview is only 15 mins though so I’m concerned about getting everything right in those 15 mins... Any insight into how the interviews have been would be great! Like if it’s more conversational or do they grill you idk but anything would be helpful!

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!!  🙂 

All the nerves for nothing. First ever interview in the books today. Although I still would prepare for this school's interview, it was really fun actually. Just like you were talking nonchalantly. I

My interview was conversational, and the professor who interviewed me was very friendly! I was definitely nervous because 15 minutes is a very short interview especially for PA school, but the interview was more relaxed than I thought it would be. Good luck!

For people who already interviewed, how long did it take to hear about an admissions decision? I interviewed for the dual MPH/PA program, and at the end of my interview I was told I would hear back from Arcadia in about 2 weeks. It has been 3 weeks and I still haven't heard back from them.. I'm starting to become concerned!

I was told 2-3 weeks, and I just hit the 2 week mark. Still no news yet, but I was told the dual degree decisions may take longer! Hopefully we’ll hear back any day now. 🙂

My interviewer did not tell me that the dual degree decisions may take slightly longer, so thank you for letting me know! Hopefully we will hear back any day now; waiting for an admissions decision is definitely anxiety-producing!

My interviewer also said that it may take longer because of the dual degree. I'm very anxious too! They said hopefully before the holidays, but I didn't know if that meant Thanksgiving or sometime in December.  Hopefully soon!!

I interviewed on November 18 and my interviewer said hopefully before thanksgiving if not the week after, so crossing my fingers that we hear something tomorrow!

Interview 11/18, still have not heard anything. Anxiety is at an all time max

I interviewed 11/9 and have still not heard anything, although my faculty interviewer said I should hear back from Arcadia in about 2 weeks. So I totally understand your anxiety! If we don't hear anything, does that automatically mean that we are rejected?

Hey guys! I'm currently on the waitlist and have accrued about 800 additional hours since I applied and want to inform Arcadia of this. If I update my experiences section in CASPA will the schools I applied to automatically get notified? Thanks!

I would email them just to be sure! I had to update my hours after submitting my app because I completely spaced out and miscalculated my hours, and I sent an email to each school I had applied to up until that point. They also confirmed receipt.

What email did you use to contact Arcadia University?

I updated my application before submitting to Arcadia, so I didn’t need to email them. You could try reaching out to Marybeth Smith: smithme@arcadia.edu. Her email address was on the general PA program info session invitation as a “reply to” address. I hope that helps!

I just got an email saying I was waitlisted for the dual degree program. At least I know now! Congrats to those who were accepted!

I also received an email saying I was waitlisted for the dual degree program. It's a bummer, but there is still a chance we will be moved off the waitlist and be accepted into the program. Congratulations to those receiving acceptances for the PA program and dual degree program; it's very exciting!
