Hey everyone! I'm a reapplicant to WCUPA and so was in contact with their program director recently. She said that they begin to review applications starting in July, so keep a lookout in your email! Last year they were sending out interview invites up until around January I believe, so it might be some time to hear. Best of luck!

I applied 6/23, was verified by CASPA on 6/25, and received the verification email from WCU on 7/9. WCU sent me an interview invite on 7/21.

Congrats on your interview! you must be so excited! Unfortunately, I am still waiting to hear back. Would you mind sharing your stats?

Thank you! This is my first cycle, so I'm really excited!

Here are my stats at time of application:

cGPA: 3.95

sGPA: 4.0

GRE: 314, 158V, 156Q, 4.0W

PCE: 3,664 (Certified Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor at an inpatient rehab and CNA in a hospital)

HCE: 3,240 (direct care staff at a residential alcohol/drug rehab)

Shadowing: 24 in-person hours with a general surgery PA, 17 virtual hours with various specialties

Volunteering: 1,591 (Special Olympics, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, food drives/soup kitchens, volunteer coaching and officiating)

Leadership: 1,378 (on the executive board for two clubs, plus volunteer coaching at my alma mater)

LoRs: 1 academic, 1 supervisor, 1 coach

I feel that my biggest weakness is my lack of PA/MD LoR. That prevented me from applying to many schools who specifically require one. We'll see how it goes!

Congrats! I look forward to "meeting" you 🙂

The only information I have about the interview is that it's 2:1. No group interview, though I believe we'll reconvene as a group for the Q&A.

Thanks for sharing! Am I correct that they don’t require the GRE?

Look forward to meeting you too! My name will be set as Ye Lim! And 2:1 as in two faculty and 1 student or vice versa?

Hi, Ye Lim! I'll be joining as Christina (Tina). Too bad we aren't in the same group.

Even though the initial emails/WCU website stated the interview would be "an individual interview," it looks like we'll be interviewing in groups of 3! I'm excited to meet everyone 🙂
