Virginia DPT 2019-2020

This forum made possible through the generous support of SDN members, donors, and sponsors. Thank you.
are you sure that thread was from 2019? or maybe they applied early decision? Because I was told by someone who goes there that they don't send out acceptances until mid-December at the earliest.
Yes, it was from this year, and no, she said it was regular decision...:unsure:

The post is by user ms.spt on page 6 here if you want to check it out:


I asked her for clarification, but she never responded.
 
I do not know of anyone else who has heard back, but I also do not personally know anyone else who applied there.
I also interviewed on 11/22 and was accepted on 11/25. Best of luck to you! Stay positive!

I got a rejection letter from Shenandoah. Good luck to everyone who are interviewing
 
Accepted to VCU -- just got the email. Not sure to be happy or not because now I feel stressed. I had already committed to go to GWU but now I'm questioning my decision because VCU is SO much cheaper and a great program.

Has anybody else accepted an interview invitation from Shenandoah but still hasn't received the second email with more info? It's been over two weeks now since I replied, and the interview is supposed to be in a week, so I'm kinda concerned.

Yeah, the weather forecast doesn't look too promising, but let's keep our fingers crossed for no bad weather!

Do you know when they stop sending out acceptances? I have my interview with SU on Tuesday but I’m also still holding out for VCU because of the price...

I just went to an info session they had this past Friday. They said that a good number of their acceptances go out December/January, but they sometimes send them out as late as March/April...so it really is just a waiting game at this point

I was supposed to interview tomorrow at 8 am, but I went ahead and cancelled and asked to do a virtual interview instead. I am almost 3 hours away and I was going to stay in a hotel tonight but I did not want to risk getting stuck.

I have my interview at 8 am tomorrow too, and I am a little nervous it will end up being canceled. That was probably smart you canceled it already. I'm from Winchester, so I decided just to wait before rescheduling. Fingers crossed no snow comes! Best of luck to you though!

Yes, indeed. I've been worried all weekend. Let's hope for the best!

In the email, it said that if the university opens late they will be forced to cancel the entire 8am session :/ I would assume 8am is cancelled, but I'm waiting for an official email to go out!

I just emailed Linda Burrow to reschedule my interview, and she said that all morning interviews were canceled. Bummer, but I guess we can't do anything about it now!
 
I guess since mine is tomorrow, I will just go about it as if it is not cancelled. Haven't received an email yet but good luck to all you Monday peeps! Hopefully they reschedule them soon!

Has anyone heard from Lynchburg and/or know any information about their timeline?

I know they’re waiting for my final grades from this semester to review my application. They have rolling admissions, last year a girl I know who is currently in the program there was accepted in early October.
 
Anyone gotten the follow up email after interviews from Shenandoah that they said would be sent out?

I was just curious about their timeline. I am currently on an accepted students waitlist, so I assume this is just like a normal waitlist.

I don’t think we get anything until the 20th according to today’s session with Dr. Turner at the end.

What do you mean by timeline? They start classes the end of May/beginning of June. Is the waitlist for UL?

Oh cool.I had my interview yesterday and he said that due to the weather we didn’t need to hang around after the tour/interview because he would send an email summary but didn’t say when.

By timeline I mean: how long they give accepted students to accept/decline their spot and if they continually accept students up until their start date (I'm assuming they do). But yeah I applied in early October and was given a spot on their "accepted students waitlist" but wasn't given a number or anything. I think since they do rolling admissions they had given all of their spots early on and are just waiting to hear back from people.

I was accepted to University of Lynchburg late September and I think I had about 2 weeks to accept/decline my spot. I think people continually get accepted, but I'm not certain.
