    Anyone here back from Touro NV PT? I was told to wait 4 weeks before a final decision was made. They received my secondary the first week of August so I'm a little worried.

    I am in the exact same boat. They told me 4 weeks at the beginning of august. I did speak with them 9/18 and they told me they would be sending out emails last week, that didn't happen so I am sure it will be soon.

    Okay thanks ataystrz, that puts my mind a little at ease. And Kuhdaytee is that when they recieved your secondary or did you send it earlier and talk to them on the 16th?

    I esubmitted on August 9th, got the supplemental email on the 28th and probably filled it out the next day, and then I got that final email on Sep 16th that said I would hear back in 4 weeks.

    @1027453812 How do you like the program and the professors? I got my acceptance letter today so I am excited and would love to hear more about the program from a current student point of view. Thank you

    @FTZ: Feel free to privately message me and I will go ahead and answer any other additional questions you may have through my school e-mail.

    I have yet to engage with all the professors here on campus in a formal classroom setting, but all of them are great. It is always important (in any academic setting) to adapt your learning style to each instructor's teaching style. I have professors that require supplemental reading on the textbook whereas others provide powerpoints and resources that can stand on their own. All professors have an open door policy and are on campus all day.

    The things that I do like about this school is their tutoring system. I am unsure as to how other programs utilize their resources, but the tutors on campus are upperclassmen. These student tutors not only understand the problems you went through, but they are easily accessible and this is another great way to network and get comfortable with the upperclassmen. Students can apply to be a tutor for a particular class on the grounds that they score a minimum of a B in the class of choice.

    If you have questions about Henderson as a city, let me know.

    A Facebook page has also been open for students accepted to the PT program.

    Cheers

    For those who already got accepted into the TUN program. How much time did they give you to turn in your deposit?

    I was emailed my acceptance, and it said I should get a letter soon with more details. I emailed back to decline acceptance, and the person who sent the email was on holiday and hasn't replied since.

    I wish I had answers for you, but it sounds like Touro is either really busy or really unorganized right now.

    I got wait listed... super confused. But I turned down the offer anyway. Makes me wonder what exactly they are looking for in an applicant.

    I am wait listed at TUN as well. I called Mr. Wilson and he said they sent out all of the acceptances they can right now. He said to give him a call in december when the wait list is more finalized and he could tell me if I was the bottom/middle or top third of the wait list. =(

    I got the email after submitting my supplemental application on Sep 16, and I have yet to hear anything since. It has been almost 8 weeks. I'm worried that I may have deleted the email. or something. Has anyone else had to wait this long? Should I contact the admissions office and inquire?

    Update:
    Got my rejection email today. That makes 5 rejections out of 9 schools.

    I emailed admissions and got a generic email saying my application has been received and is still being reviewed. I think their average response time is 8 weeks, not 4 weeks... so don't worry!
     
  25. i'm confused -- does TouroNV do interviews or not?

    They don't do interviews. They review your file and if they like you they put you into the "second round" and then choose people from there; acceptance, waitlist, or denial.

    So what does that mean for those of us who only received the supplemental application confirmation email? I received mine 12/24
     
  28. On Dec.12 I received this message:

    "Please anticipate four weeks for the faculty review process prior to receiving official notification of your admissions decision."

    It has been seven weeks.

    I applied pretty early for this program and was accepted, but I still waited ~12 weeks after I received that email before I was notified. I just rescinded my acceptance, so hopefully that slot opens up for you.

    It's been 9 weeks since they acknowledged receiving my supplementary app. I emailed Wilson about it last week, and he said "we received more applications than we anticipated" and "the committee will be getting to your application shortly." *Sighs*

    Sorry to hear that. At least you have other acceptances though right? What time was your email? I'm anxiously waiting for mine.

  38. got this email today:

    Hello,

    I am attempting to determine if you are still interested in the Touro University Nevada Doctor of Physical Therapy program. You are currently on our wait list. We will be filling positions in the next few weeks. In order to make the process as efficient as possible, I am attempting to find out if you would still consider attending Touro University Nevada.

    I ask that you reply to this email to let me know if you are either still interested in attending or no longer interested in being considered.

    Thank you,

    Michael W. Wilson, Admissions Counselor

    Yes, I have purchased everything from the list that they emailed through amazon! I highly suggest purchasing everything from amazon or some other source, because you can save a couple hundred bucks.
