    Do they score you based on your answers in the group discussion as well? Is it with every interviewee?

    Theres a second year student in there who's taking notes (so I guess they score you on that). You're split into groups of like 15-20 people or so.

    I wonder I they call everyone or they just call the people who are accepted
    and email the ones who aren't?

    Anyone not get accepted from TWU yet? I've only heard two people here say they were accepted

    Yes. It’s been my top choice since i decided to go to PT school. I have a good friend who started there this year and he loves it. It's also the only school in Texas that hasn't denied me :bag:. I was accepted into southwest Baptist university in Missouri but tuition is expensive

    When I was at the Dec. 1st interview, I believe I heard the current students saying there was one other interview session or date left. If I heard correctly, I'm not sure if that is just one more at one campus or one more at each campus.

    There are people in this thread (and one at school with me) who heard back on Sunday morning. Not sure if they are sending out a second round of invitations to attend or if it will just be wait list notifications. If perez6 makes it in to texas state it will open a spot at least ;)

    Congratulations on your acceptance! Is that your first choice? When did you interviewed?

    That's the campus I really want to go to. I'm getting so anxious waiting though. The silence is driving me crazy.

    I know! It feels a little late. Which is your first choice?

    Maybe you too can email Mary beth to see where you stand and explain your situation?

    My assumption is that that is the very last day for everyone to know and that they will be letting people know before that as well (that's what I'm hoping lol)

    From what was said in my interview, it seems like they're trying to make decisions/notify pretty quickly. But don't lose hope! Ms. Eblen told us that the bulk of the class would be made up of the early December interviewees. Even if you do get waitlisted, I've heard from friends who are currently year ones that they work their way pretty far down the list!

    Do you remember if they ask you anything about current trends in healthcare or PT?
    Something that isn't about yourself?
