    Hey guys! I am starting this thread in hopes of making a timeline about when schools in NC are sending out admissions decisions and interview offers for this current cycle!

    I applied to Duke, ECU, WCU, Elon, High Point, and UNC! Feel free to put information out there about any schools in NC :)

      I applied to Duke, UNC, WSSU, Chapel Hill, Elon, ECU, and HPU. I got accepted to HPU today, still haven't heard anything from anyone else (other than non-NC schools). Good luck!

      1. Pre-Physical Therapy
        I applied to Duke, UNC, ECU, WCU, Elon, High Point, and 4 non-NC schools (UCSF, Samuel Merritt, USC, and UoP). I have been waitlisted at High Point and haven't heard back from any other schools yet!

          when did you apply to elon? I applied recently and received an email that they received all my material just the other day. Also, do you mind posting your stats? I'm curious to see what they look at since their prereq requirement is unique compared to other schools
          I submitted my ptcas stuff at the end of September, Elon emailed me and said they got my application October 2nd but they didn’t finish checking my recommendations and all that until October 11th. Then two days ago they emailed me for an interview.

          I have a 3.93 cGPA
          Around a 3.9 Prereq gpa honestly not sure since it changes at every school
          My gre is a 155 math 154 verbal and then I have over 250 hours.

            That's so weird because I applied at the beginning of August and haven't heard anything from them at all other than the application received on August 15. My status page still says "Your application is now complete." Maybe I should contact them and ask if there's anything missing...

              In the email that says your application is received there’s a link to check your admissions status. Maybe try that? It shows what they have from you so maybe that could tell you. If not, I would contact them!

                Hey! How did you know they finished checking your recommendations and everything on October 11th? I've only received one email saying that everything has been received and my application status is complete on my admissions status page, but I'm not sure if I should be on the lookout for a second email. Thanks!

                    There’s a custom link in that email that lets you log in and it showed when they got my gre scores and when they checked to make sure my recommendations were from the required people. It took about a week and a half until the last thing was processed and checked off from when I originally got the email. Hope this helps!!

                            Got an interview with WCU on Dec. 9th at 1:30, so I'll see some of y'all there. I wonder how the three group sessions are going to be laid out for the interview?!

                            Current WCU 1st year DPT student here. Ill be one of the students conducting the afternoon interviews for the 9th. You'll most likely be in a group of about 9 other candidates rotating through 3 different rooms with panels comprised of 1st and 3rd year students as well as professors. Its very stressful but try your best to relax and be confident. Good luck to you!

                              Last year they split us up and some went on a tour while another group interviewed in a large room with about 6 other interviewees and about 6 interviewers.
