    they have to make their decision by Sept 27th. PTCAS only lets you apply to one.... Your status will change to accepted, denied or be reverted to regular application status and then you will be able to apple elsewhere. As far as them contacting you or how much sooner they infor PTCAS may be up to the school.

    it is based on the school, if they had interviews normally then they still do, if not then ur still good to go without an interview

    I applied ED to Rosalind Franklin and got an invitation for an interview on Monday this week.

    I'm pretty sure the deadline for schools to let us know their final decision is September 27th (per PTCAS's explanation of ED).

    Hang tight, stay positive.

    I am getting nervous because we still have not heard back from Regis. I feel they would need to tell us very soon if they wanted an interview since there is about only 2.5 weeks left to give a decision. Should I be getting concerned?

    Penguin: I know what you mean. I haven't heard back from western caronlina. I don't think all schools interview for early decision, but I'm not sure. Good luck! Hopefully we hear back soon.

    Yup - I applied for Early Decision at UIC, too. It will be interesting to see how they handle it, since this is the first year they are implementing this option. Letters will go out by the end of the month.
    I have spent the last two years taking pre-req classes full-time - it is daunting to think that in less than 3 weeks I will know if it was all worth it...

    Congrats on the interview eaa05001!

    Skype is super easy to use. You'll need a computer with a webcam and microphone. Download the program from their website, set up a username and password, and you're good to go. Your computer needs to have a nice, strong internet connection -- you don't want your video-stream interview to get interrupted!

    Good luck!

    Do a few Skype calls with friends before your interview date, to get used to it. If it's going to be a video call, look into your webcam as you talk. 99.99% of the people look into the screen instead of the camera, and so the result is that there is no direct eye contact.

    Thanks for the advice! I had my first practice skype call with the admissions director and it wasn't too bad. Now, I just have to get the nerves under control. :cool:Good luck to everyone else who has interviews for early admissions this week!! So close to the finish line!!!

    I did not apply early decision, but I did go to the USC info session today.

    According to the chair, they got ~20 ED apps, and they haven't made any decisions yet.

    Good luck!

    Well I'm not really sure. It consisted of two interviews with two different faculty members. The first one was a bit shaky (had problems with the camera and internet connection;however, I really connected with the second interviewer and had a great interview with her. I just don't know how it'll be scored overall. I definitely am not partial to skype interviews now. I feel I could have done better in a face-to-face interview and been more at ease. They didn't ask any out of the ordinary questions basically : why pt?, quality a pt should have, situation where you used critical thinking skills, creativity skills, how do you handle group situations..etc.
    Now we wait, I guess...

    Just got an e-mail from UIC informing me I was accepted via Early Decision for Fall 2012!
    So for you folks who might be "older" career-changers like myself, study the pre-reqs and other important information inside and out for where you want to go, seek out the best professors and get to know them a little bit, keep your eyes and ears open for solid observation/work opportunities (and hustle to get them), and keep the faith and ask yourself "Why not me this time?" - it can be done!

    Oh, and by the way - thank you to everyone on this forum for your information, support, and general goodness! It was nice to hear from both people who were in the same (application) situation and those who had already made it.

    SingingPT, it felt like I won the PowerBall Lottery, and I have had a permanent smile on my face the past couple of days. I am sure that you (and all PT school candidates) have sacrificed and deferred a lot of things to chase this dream - and now we know it was worth it. Look forward to meeting you on campus!

    Congratulations, eaa05001! (I admit - I was 100x more nervous during this process than the college admissions process after high school...).
    Regis is lucky to have you!
