And just my personal opinion here but I think only good results will come for us. I think the longer the wait is the better the chances, if they wanted to reject someone they would've done it quickly since it would be a waste of the applicants time and their time with deliberating. But again I could be wrong that's just my take on it.

Yeah, no problem. But it’s kinda weird so I’ll explain. So I’m a post bacc and first went back to school at NYU and bombed my first year (like straight C’s) and then re-evaluated my day to day because I was academically (and financially) struggling. I re-enrolled and started over when I decided to move back home but obviously my science gpa suffered so I explained all of that in the supplemental and then in the actual interview. But with NYU’s pre req sciences my sGPA was a 3.29; overall GPA 3.45. Take NYU away (you really can’t but you know what I mean lol), I had like a 3.8 sGPA.

Outside of GPA, I worked at a forensic consulting firm in NYC under a doctor for a year after I graduated from college. I also volunteered at Westchester Medical Center in their outpatient radiology clinic and in the ER. I am also an EMT. I also work as a full time ER tech.

No community volunteer work.

I didn’t have any PA shadowing.

I was a TA for behavioral stats, intro to psych, physiological psychology, and research methods.

Honestly, I think I just crushed the interview. I read “how to ace your PA interview” twice and I highly recommend that book!!

Waitlisted as well. Dang I really wanted to attend a place that’s pretty close by. Plus it’s really late into the cycle as well. I’m not too sure if they will pick too many people out of the waitlist considering there will be another CASPA pool they will be able to choose from in a few months. Truly unfortunate

I was also accepted! I was wondering if there would be a Facebook page or something with all the accepted students so we could interact. I know it's still so early, but I think it would be nice. 

I’m totally down!!! If you make it, post the link here. Will you def be attending?

Nothing on my end, tbh never say never but I personally have lost hope and decided to move on from FDU. The next CASPA cycle is in a couple days so I think your chances of being removed from the waitlist at that point are very very slim. I think the school is just going to ghost you at that point
