They are. I called. But they are just taking their time so don’t worry. Keep positive. I have not heard anything either. 

It’s via phone call that you are hearing about interviews? Gracious, I need to start answering my unknown numbers 😅😅😅

I got some kind of ad email today from the high point graduate admissions office and it literally gave me a heart attack thinking it was an II😭

I just wanted to share my stats! I find it comforting to share and hear about other peoples' backgrounds!

I am a first time applicant to PA school. Graduating this December. 

I am 21 years old. Turn 22 on July 16th, haha.

cGPA 3.83

sGPA 3.79

HCE: 2500 hours as pharmacy tech

PCE: 1400 hours as CNA

GRE 298 (I was VERY sick taking the GRE. MIGHT retake.) I found the GRE really difficult for me. I am shocked, too, because I usually do well with standardized testing!

Feel free to share yours! I know it’s comforting for me to hear and share stats!  Good luck everyone!

Second time applying. I am 28, 29 next month. This is considered old to PA schools when it comes to your courses so keep an eye on that haha. Starting to retake older courses in order to be able to apply to more schools that have a 5-7 year cut off.

PCE: 13000 hours as an athletic trainer. (5 years at the same high school, helped to build a robust sports medicine program that was lacking in policies, procedures, etc)

GRE: 300 on the nose twice, but same here did not do great even with more studying and a retake (my math is atrocious). Thankfully more schools are looking at candidates more holistically.

Leadership in college:
