Hey! Well done for getting waitlisted at Yale! 
Yes they do! You should speak to their admissions counselor Macie, she is so lovely and will answer all your questions about the program. I was really impressed! 
Good luck! 
 

Hi! Thank you! I’m in such limbo tho being on the waitlist and a hybrid program is really my only option! 

I spoke with Macie, everything sounds promising! How do you feel about not knowing about their accreditation until next May (2022) though?? I think I’m gonna take the GRE and apply here, but I just don’t want to put all my eggs in one basket for something to not work out (knock on wood for them!) I hope they get accredited because their program seems like it has a lot to offer and it could really work for me! 🙂

Out of curiosity, when did you submit your application? Just wondering how long it takes them to review.

I'm not the OP of the comment, but I submitted my application on 06/05/21. Two weeks ago, I was told by Macie that they are taking longer than expected to upload the GRE scores, as they have had to do this manually. Today, I received an email stating my scores were received and my application is going to faculty review.

Gotcha! I submitted my application on July 1st and received the same notification from Macie today.

I just got my acceptance today! I’m curious about their accreditation though, as I’m sure most people are… has anyone spoken with Macie about this? She didn’t have an appointment available until mid august. The program seems so wonderful! I hope everything works out with accreditation, I’d love to attend this program.

I also just got my acceptance to the hybrid program today. Macie called me and spoke with me for about 5 minutes and explained that everything will be emailed this week or next week. I know they aren't accredited yet, but I am not that worried since they have 2 programs already accredited. Congratulations to everyone who was accepted and good luck to those waiting!

Got accepted this morning! I hope everything goes smoothly with accreditation, and hope I’ll meet some future online Knights through this thread 🙂

I submitted my app 5/30/21 but they didn’t receive my 3rd LOR until 6/30/21. No interview took place, but I did speak with Macie on the phone for about 30 minutes after I applied and she asked me some interview-like questions, but mostly information about the program’s timeline, etc.

@Keshipley I applied the end of May and my GRE was accepted the first week of June. I was rejected by the in-person program last week and then accepted to the hybrid yesterday. From the sounds of it the hybrid just started to accept people. Good luck! 

How does this happen?

I was not selected for the hybrid program and am waiting on decisions from the in-person programs (both campuses). Do they have different admission committees?

      I am a member of AAPA and maybe I am unfamiliar with the website, but I want to make the most learning from the site and using it.
      How do PA-S or PA-C use it? As a Pre-PA how can I use the site and its resources to help?
      I appreciate it!

      Hi guys, 
      I didn't see a new thread. Hope this helps you guys. Just like in previous years they are moving forward, but it may look a bit different because COVID seems to be slowing down. Here's the email I received on 5/11/2021. I submitted my application on 5/3/2021 and verified on 5/11/2021. 
       
      Thank you for applying to the Radford University Carilion PA program. This email is to let you know that your application is complete, has been marked as "Verified", and we have received your RU supplemental application. Your application will be put in a queue to be reviewed. You may still provide updates to your application through the CASPA website.
      Once applications are reviewed, we will make decisions on whom to interview. Our earliest interview dates will be in September. As we don't yet have exact dates selected for interviews, we will likely make offers for interviews in early July at the soonest.
      We will send out periodic updates to keep you apprised of your status. However, with the necessary changes in how we accomplish our tasks, those updates may not be as frequent as we would like them to be. We are happy to answer any questions that come up, and you are welcome to email me at rhadley1@radford.edu.
      Thank you,
      Bob Hadley

      Hello PA forum.
      After doing some soul searching, I decided on maybe going for PA school. I am only a 2nd semester freshman. However, due to many circumstances, such as adjusting to online school, and a 1 star professor, my first semester of college was a 2.5. I also was not planning on anything after undergrad so I wasn't totally motivated on acing everything. I am doing my best this semester to make up for that, and getting a 3.75 or 4 this semester is realistic at the moment since Ive bee working extra hard. I am very worried however that all of the hard work that will come in the next years will be for naught if my 2.5 first semester will weigh me down. I know I am capable of getting mostly As and Bs from here on out, but will my first semester be the bane of my PA school application? Will schools take into account covid college and and very bad professors who hardly knew how to operate education software? Will schools see the upward trend as a good thing? I also understand that my application will be looked at as a package rather than just GPA, so I have some hope, but this worry still lingers.
