    I did my post bac at Temple in 2000. I was speaking with the director of health professions (aka post bac/pre med advisor)the other day and asked him about my interview on 3/27. I asked him realistically "Am I interviewing for the waitlist?" He told me that in his opinion about 90-100 seats out of 200 are filled at this time and that I should take this interview seriously. He said that he knew of someone that interviewed last week and received an acceptance. Now this is just one man's opinion, but I know that he works in close conjunction with the med school and I have to say that as a URM/PA resident, this made me feel a bit more optimistic about my upcoming interview. Any comments?

    Thanks, ussdfiant! hehe <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />

    According to what an SDNer told me after his interview 2 weeks ago, this is true. The class is not filled. I think it is also notable that non-PA residents may find out about an acceptance a little later than PA residents. They have to fill their PA quota first.

    hm, seems like every school I have an intevriew with does this. :rolleyes:

    Hi Tori,

    I interviewed at temple on 3/11 and I found out I was accepted on 3/27 (!) so there are definitely still spaces available. AND I am not a PA resident-my interviewer said my chances of getting an immediate accept being out of state are very unlikly-but I did. You may have a good chance going into the interview if you did post-bacc there and are a PA resident...you should be very optimistic about your chances! Good luck!

    PS-this is my first post on SDN

    I made a mistake on my earlier post. I found out 3/19 not 3/27. Sorry about that!

    Welcome to SDN oldcane :D

    Since it took me forever to figure out, here's how you can edit your post. Just click on the icon above your post that looks like a pencil and paper, and edit away! Entire posts and threads can also be deleted this way. :)

    and congrats on the acceptance! I'll be there in 2 weeks to interview <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> :D
