I emailed them and they stated everyone will have a decision made on their application in 2 weeks ( if you get an interview or rejection)

Hey guys! I’m a current first year at MCPHS and I wanted to offer some info to you guys to help you through this process! Although MCPHS says you need xyz or didn’t have enough abc, not every single s

I left a message with the office and received a voicemail from christine. she said that historically invites do not get sent out until octoberish and that interviews would be virtual this year.!

How do I get the portal? I was never asked to create one but it seems that people got theirs through email? 

You should have received an email to create login. Search your in your email. They sent it with verified email. My application was verified in august so I haven't heard anything.

I'm late but I received an interview invite on 9/11 and I'm still shaking from the excitement/disbelief! I scheduled for 11/17. There were 3 date options one date in Sept, Oct and Nov (all virtual if it wasn't assumed).

This is my first interview invite!

 

7/13 - Got email from MCPHS-Boston about receiving my app 

9/11 - Interview Invite

Excited to move forward in the application process! Hang in there everyone! You're all amazing for making it this far - interview or not!!

Don't count yourself out just yet! Hold the faith. Have you considered reaching out to MCPHS?

Would anyone who has been offered an interview mind sharing your stats. Trying to have an idea of the caliber of student they are looking at first. Thank you! Also, congrats to all who received invites! 

Don't lose hope! I have lower PCE and shadow hours, so maybe they are going by stats first? From previous interview experience this cycle at a different school, I know they care A LOT about PA exposure and PCE -- potentially even more than stats! My PCE hours are currently 1500 and volunteer hours are 450 since the time I submitted in May. (& doing virtual PA shadowing) 

cGPA: 3.85 

sGPA: 3.85 

PCE (at time of submission): ~800 hours 

HCE: 480 hours 

Volunteer (at time of submission): ~375 hours 

Research: 960 hours 

Shadowing: ~40 hours with an MD (major weak point due to COVID-19 halting my PA shadow opportunity)

I got an email from May for a portal login and just saw it, and it was in my junk mail (oh no!) I contacted help because it is not working now and was wondering if everyone got word via email or via portal, I applied early and still have not heard anything !

 

 

Never got this email, they told me it’s because they had issues sendin out confirmations in the beginning. Seems like lot of emails were sent out via email to check portals’
