It will definitely be worth it!! Keep working hard :) Good things come to those who wait... that's what I'm trying to remind myself. From past years' threads, it seems like MUSC sends out invitations for interviews around Halloween. Keep in touch!

The GRE is a test lf graduate "readiness" My guess is if you hold a masters or PhD, you've likely taken the GRE to get in and by earning he degree you've displayed he ability to successfully handle graduate work. I don't know anything about how the GRE factors into the overall score or what happens to your score if it is waived.

Has anyone received an invite for interview? If so, how did the interview go, any details about the structure would be great. Anyone have any info on the timing with interviews/acceptances?

Hey everyone, Has anyone heard back from admissions about interview dates? My application was completed on August 26th and I haven't heard anything yet!

I applied slightly earlier than that and have not heard anything back! I heard around Halloween is typically when you hear back for early admissions. Early admissions is not rolling admissions, I believe. Nervously waiting, it is killing me!

She said the pa program just had their 10 yr accredidation visit this week and so they prolly will start looking at our applicaions next week. She said it may be a couple more weeks until we hear something!

That's good to know, thanks for sharing that with us. As someone stated previously, the admissions were not "rolling," meaning they were not going to begin reviewing applications til after October 1st.

I believe my application was submitted Aug 10th and I have yet to hear. My anxiety got the better of me, I called to ask if early interview invited had gone out. I was told they had not but not other info was given. I hate to be a bother so I did not press for details. It seems strange to me they would not have looked at the applications yet when the website suggests early interviews are held in November. Very curious. I am waiting on pins and needles psychoticly checking my email. Hope you all are hanging in there!

Yea, I am not sure how that works either. I don't think they need to give a large heads up for interview dates though- like a week notice, so they are still held in November. But trust me, you are not the only one continuously checking your email! I am constantly nervous just waiting for the response and my GPA's are lower than I would have hoped so that doubles the anxiety. Good luck to you!

Just hanging in there, going with the flow. Interviews will be in November, December timeframe is what I gather. Thinking positive always helps all of us!!!

I spoke with a woman back in August when I submitted my application. I wanted to know about the early decision option and whether or not one was locked into the program and potential interview dates... From what I was told the early decision is to give people, just that, an early decision, but that all interviews would be held in January. It was a while ago and I could be mistaken but I'm almost positive that's what she told me. Also that early decision doesn't lock one into the program if accepted, which is confusing when comparing it to undergraduate study and early decision.

Strange, I know from reading this board that in years past they have offered early interviews close to Halloween. It appears as though they have been held in early November and again in mid November. I wonder if they are shaking things up a bit this year? It seems funny they would have people apply for early decisions while interviewing everyone in January. Who knows!? I'll just sit here obsessively checking my email while crossing my fingers ;)

Someone else told me and the website says early admissions interviews are held November/December. So I guess we have to sit and wait until we hear something! If I get anything back though, I'll let everyone know either way. I hope we all hear something good back:)

Glad to hear everyone else is obsessively checking emails as well. Makes me a feel a little less crazy for doing so myself. :)

 

I got anxious and called last week to inquire on time frames for the interview invites. I was told they would go out around November 1. I can't remember if that was an overall expected date, or a no earlier than date. Regardless, definitely no need to worry if you have not heard anything yet. I was also told that their early admission interview dates were currently set for November 16th and 30th. Hope that helps.

 

Good luck to everyone!
