Has anyone else been waiting for the "DMU application material review" in the portal? Its been almost a month since I was verified and it says not received. It says to allow 21 business days for completion but it feels like forever

Yeah I actually called them because i was concerned but they said they had all the materials but it takes 21 business days. I was worried they didn't receive my GRE score.

I’m sure there will be multiple applicants per interview session, although they never directly said 

It’s a group interview. I interviewed last year and it was the same thing, not well communicated that it included other interviewees. Don’t expect to be asked any direct questions either. I’d say the “kira assessment” was the only real interview.

How long did it take for you to hear back after the group interview?

Did you have a case study last year too? Is that a group discussion over a certain situation?

      My name is Mahlia, this is my 3rd time applying to UW and first time being invited to interview.
      I would love to get to know some of my future peers and fellow interviewees through this forum. I was also wondering what the interview experience was like for those who interviewed last year via zoom. Was a same small group interview style used? Looking forward to hearing from you all.

      Hello all,
      For this cycle, I have had the privilege of being accepted into two PA programs so far. And more interviews to come! My heart is telling me to go to program B, but my brain is telling me to stick with program A. I guess I am wowed by the flashy offerings of program B over program A that finally helps me feel at home at a educational institution(something I didn't have during my undergrad as a first gen student). Maybe this is me doubting myself, but somehow I feel I may not be as academically successful with a PA program that is only two years long because of the material crunch. The only thing holding me back from program B is graduating with crippling debt by the age of 28 😞, especially because I had a full ride to college. 
      Any and all honest opinions welcome. What would you do? 
      Program A 
      - 25 months
      - Tuition 85-90k
      - PANCE 93-97%
      - Smaller city in midwest, cost of living fairly low
      - Less time during clinical rotation phase/means less specialties I can explore?
      - Has all the essentials technology/skill labs
       
      Program B 
      - Top ranked program (probably doesn't matter)
      - 30ish months with longer breaks
      - Tuition 170-180k
      - PANCE 91-96%
      - Larger faculty
      - Part of teaching hospital
      - Big city, cost of living is larger
      - Large alumni network/more leadership CAPA opportunities

      January 14                          from my understanding it’s call for acceptance and email for waitlist or denial

      January 17                          Just got waitlisted
      February 8                         Just got accepted off the waitlist!
