Is anyone from the Coastal Bend area? I received an email from Frank Ambriz on September 22nd stating

"We will next be conducting interviews via Zoom starting at the end of the month." 

He said that's when they will begin conducting interviews? or did he mean sending out invites... as far as i'm aware it seems that no one has even gotten those yet!

Can you guys access your UTRGV graduate application? When I try to access it, it says that my application has already closed

On CAPSA or Self Service Center?

Mine says this  "Status: Applied - Under Review by Program" 

What does your status say?

Thank you for the link! I guess I bookmarked the wrong one

No problem, the same thing happened to me last week! I actually freaked out and wound up calling grad central.

Thank you for the update! Let's hope, by putting the two posts from Frank together, invites are sent at the end of September for interviews in October. At this rate, it seems about all the programs I applied to will respond in some way in October

This is what Frank Ambriz just told me "We will start interviewing in October and all the way into late December."

Thank you so much for sharing! Currently eating chips and refreshing my inbox every two seconds. I should probably find something on Netflix instead lol...

I haven’t heard anything either. Oddly enough this makes me like the program more? Looking at the whole applicant rather than just the numbers is much more time consuming. 

Anyways, I’m hopeful that’s the case. I’ve never met the admissions board other than at the June 13th virtual information session but overall I got good vibes from these people. 

Stay strong and stay hopeful everyone, before we know it interview invites will be here.

I just received an email that says this 

"Dear Kendall,
Thank you for your interest in the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley Physician Assistant Program. We have completed the first review of your file.  You have met all of the prerequisite requirements.

If you have any pending or "in progress" coursework, it must be completed before enrollment. It, therefore, means that at the time of entry into our PA Program, you must, at a minimum, have a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college. Your file will now be processed further for interview consideration.  A panel of admissions committee members and/or program faculty will be reviewing your file further to determine if you will be invited for an interview. You do not need to take any further action at this time. You will be notified by email if we have questions for you or if you are selected. 

Virtual Interviews
The interview will most likely be a Live Virtual Interview, which uses video conference technology to connect you with an interviewer or interview panel in real-time."

I am frustrated because I keep getting emails from different people at UTRGV saying all kinds of different things!! Some say interviews were supposed to be sent out at the end of September, then they said beginning of October, etc.

How are you guys getting so many emails beyond the "your application is being reviewed" email? It has been radio silent on my end as an out-of-state applicant.

This is wonderful news Kendall! I haven’t gotten anything 😕. I’m praying I get the same e-mail! Regardless, I’m happy for you stranger. Wishing you a wonderful evening, and thanks for sharing. The ball is rolling people

Quick question, when you log into the self service center what is the status of your application? Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this!

"APPLIED - UNDER REVIEW BY PROGRAM"

It will likely stay at this status until next Fall unless you were formally accepted and confirmed your acceptance. I was rejected last cycle and it was changed to "DECISION MADE" in early September when the program had already begun. It was showing as "applied - under review by program" even well after I was emailed a rejection.
