Hey all! I also received an interview for 9/10. Good luck to those who are interviewing and those still waiting!

I received the acceptance email today! I will be putting my deposit and accepting my seat, good luck to everyone! I interviewed 9/10 for anyone wondering

Figured I would go ahead and start a new thread for the newest cycle! T-minus 12 days!!! 🙂 

Does Augusta require a personal statement? I know in the supplemental it ask about "Explain any academic challenges, successes, or obstacles in your life that impacted your ability to achieve your goals", which I presume is not it.

I put my personal statement in the last page in the last box where it says, "The Admissions Committee is interested in your reasons for entering this field and in your ability to express the motivation behind your decision. Explain below the unique factors and experiences that led you to this profession. If you are already certified or licensed in a health professions field, explain why you wish to continue your education."

Oh thank you! I must have missed that cause I did not see it.

This part is only for pre-req courses that we plan to take if we haven't complete it right? I became confused because it listed "Term / Year Taken". If anyone can give me some clarification I would really appreciate it!

Sorry for the late response, yes! just for the ones you plan to take if you have not already, I emailed them with the same question.

Has anyone taken the Casper test? Or know if you have to take it before the admission committee will review your application? I signed up and the only closest date would be on August 11th and I would hate for this one test to hold me back 😭

Hey guys! Just received news that I’m on the alternate list! A little bummed it’s not an acceptance, but extremely extremely grateful to still be considered! 🙂

do you guys think it would be rude to ask if they are able to tell me how far up on the waiting list I am? Or how their selection process is for those on the wait list? I’m anxious to know but I don’t want to offend anyone or come off as annoying to Admissions haha.

Typically schools won't share information about where an applicant is on the waiting list, you just have to be patient and hope that someone pulls out. But since you're one of the first groups to interview, I would guess that you're pretty up there. Good luck though!

Any advice on how the interview went online? My interview is on 9/10 and I'm nervous about what to expect and the formatting!

My interview is on 9/10 too! I’m so nervous I’ve been digging through the internet to understand the format and I haven’t had any luck. I want to know what we’ll be doing all day!

Haha yeah I figured, that makes sense. I’ll just be patient then! Thanks so much for the encouragement, much appreciated! ☺️
 

And they should be sending you instructions on the formatting real soon! It was four individual one-on-one interviews With faculty, followed by a presentation on the tour/campus, a group interview, and Q&A session. The faculty was nice, but sometimes it was definitely intimidating lol! I think they ask interesting questions to get to know you as an applicant and your thought process.

I also am on the wait-list 😞 got the letter a few days ago. It's very stressful so I'm right there with you! I mean I'm very grateful that it wasn't a rejection but Augusta is my top choice so we'll see I guess. I agree with Am5758 that I don't think schools will give out that information - I also asked my friend who goes to MCG what she thought about me contacting them and she also said they won't share that kind of information as far as she knows. She was wait-listed too but I'm sure the med school has their own ways of going about the wait list... who knows. 

So you must have been in the 1st cohort of interviewees, what date was your interview?  I was the 2nd cohort on 9/10 and they said they'll be four total so hopefully after decisions are made for the last cohort we will know. That's going to feel like a very long wait 😞

Aww hey I feel you! It is indeed very stressful and nerve-wracking to have to wait to hear their final decision. I know it’s easier said than done but don’t let yourself feel down, being on the waitlist may not be ideal but it is still an accomplishment! It means they still see you being fully capable of being an amazing PA, they just don’t have enough seats. Give yourself a pat on the back and just know that no matter what you will be an awesome PA! 
 

And yes I was the first cohort for interviews, I interviewed August 28 and I received my waitlist status exactly two weeks later. I have recently been accepted to a PA program I really like so I will be withdrawing from Augusta’s waitlist! Hope that gives someone an opportunity to be called off the waitlist! 😄 

Best of luck! 🙂

Hey your news about withdrawing from AU's waitlist literally made my day lol. And congrats that must be such a relief to get a school you really like. No more anxiously waiting!

      Hello, 
       
      I submitted my CASPA applications to 11 schools on May 28th. I just realized that I made a error in the calculation of my hours for my undergraduate research hours for my honor's thesis. The date listed on my experience are correct, 10/1/2018 to 5/08/2020. But I mixed up the total weeks and hours calculation. I wrote 77,010 hours.  It should be 1,560 hours (104 weeks * 15 hours a week). I have no idea how I managed  to get the high number, clearly a mistake in my calculations as shown by the time frame. I've already contacted CASPA about the issue. I am awaiting their reply. I am also going to email the 11 schools graduate admissions to notify them of the error and that I am working with CASPA. I know it can't be corrected since my application was already verified. But now that I have one interview invite, I was wondering if I should be doing anything additionally to rectify the situation? I'm really nervous schools will see this error as carelessness, and then question my capabilities as a student, and eventual practicing PA. 
       
      I'm really stressing out since realizing this error, any advice would be appreciated!

      Hey everyone, there are still tickets available for those who are interested in the Loma Linda PA program. We have changed our event from zoom to being ON CAMPUS. There will be prizes raffled off. Due to some restrictions still being in place, the tickets that are being sold will only allow one person per ticket. More info on the flyer and event bright website. Thank you so much! Hope to see you there. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/llus-3rd-annual-pre-pa-conference-tickets-145958073527

      I am applying for 2021-22 cycle. I graduated recently and don't have any formal work experience. I am tired of applying to jobs, cold-calling clinics and hospitals for jobs. I even offered to work for free. I am licensed (EKG, and phleb) then also I am getting rejected. Nobody wants to hire anymore, they don't even need free services. I am a person of color, I hope that is not the reason.
