Hey everyone!

My name is Matt, and I was just unfortunately put on the waitlist for 2012. Is there anyone out there that can help a scientist who has experience at UPENN in surgical pathology? Any advice is welcome! Thanks everyone!

Hey Matt, I was also waitlisted at Drexel (sarcastic high five!). Better luck for us next year, eh? Wish I had advice to offer, but just had to respond to your post because it's nice to bump into someone that's in the same boat as me.

Hey Josephine, when did you find out? Also, did you interview and/or find out why you were waitlisted?

Hey Josephine, when did you hear? I just found out today. Did you interview? I wish I was given a reason why I was waitlisted!

Hey Matt, I received the email this past Friday. Yes I had a phone interview with James Moore in November. I emailed James and Tina and asked for feedback on ways to improve my application for the future. I got a response from Susan Romano instead. She said I was #5 of 16 on the waitlist and suggested I gain further exposure in the lab (I only had two shadow days) and try to get a rec letter from a PA. She also mentioned a West Coast program they're working to open in Sacramento, but there's no set dates for that yet. She did emphasize that I was still a good candidate, but she was probably trying to be nice. I'm sure you'll have your questions answered if you just e-mail them, go for it :)

here's my email in case you had more questions: jglspnay@gmail.com

Hey guys,

I am a Drexel graduate and, just so you know (but not to get your hopes up) in my class somewhere around 4-6 students got in after being waitlisted initially. If you are higher up on the list, be patient, good things may happen!

Hi anotherPA,

I was wondering what type of experience you had prior to your acceptance to Drexel? The reason I ask is because I have surgical an autopsy pathology experience through my previous work at UPENN, and I rank pretty damn low on that waiting list! Furthermore, I recently took a course (and got an A) at their instruction to satisfy a prerequisite.

I didn't apply to Drexel, but I am also waitlisted to the schools I applied to. This really is a bummer. But there is still a chance for us all!! If we don't get in this year, there is always next year!!

Cheers.

I sincerely hope that none of you attended Drexel. The program co-directors are simply awful people. You really have to see what they write about their students!!
