  3. I just completed the 2-day interview process yesterday! I was so impressed by everything that UF has to offer- most notably the advanced sim lab and proximity/accessibility to a top notch hospital in Shands. Overall the interviews were relaxed and made me feel at ease so I could really be myself. Good luck to everyone who has applied for the class of 2020 and congrats to those already accepted to this amazing program!

  4. Spoke to Cyndi this afternoon. All interview invites for this year have been offered. There may be a couple more if people decline. If you did not receive an interview invite don't let it discourage. Find ways to strengthen your packet and standout in the future. If you've applied to other programs, I certainly wish you the best. For those who have already interviewed and are anxiously awaiting hearing from the program, Cyndi also wanted me to share this with you: while some people have been offered a seat for the class of 2020, most offers will not be extended until AFTER all of the i

  7. The interviewers just asked tradition and ethical questions! You interview with 3 people either faculty and/or alumni, and each interviewer asks questions related to your resume. So one might ask “why PA- what pivotal moment made you want to be in this profession”, another may ask “how would you explain the role of a PA to a patient who doesn’t know what the role entails”, and another could ask “what have you done to prepare for this program and career.” Each interview is 10 minutes each with about 1-2 minutes of questions you can ask. Hope this helps!

  10. @TheLastStone thanks for the response. Funny I am actually from Charlotte! I always planned to go back but my fiancee is doing a phd at UNC, so here I am. I really love the charlotte area. I want to move back in a few years once he is done with his degree. Seems like there's more opportunities there and no PA school I guess other than wingate nearby.

  14. It's like with driving. To legally drive you have to have a state-issued driver's license, but it doesn't have to be from the same state you're driving in. UNE is accredited by the same regional body that accredits Harvard and Yale. Those credits are good anywhere in the U.S.

  16. MMI is actually pretty cool and it's fun. I recommend watching videos on YouTube on MMI scenarios get an idea. ( I think course grinder is the one I used). The one I attended was 1 on 1 with five different rooms. You get 6 minutes in each room and 2 minutes prior to entering to read the question or scenario. Then, you move on to the next room and so forth.

  19. Make sure none of the schools you're going to require Ochem before you take that class, because then you'd have to take Ochem anyway. Also NEVER take a survey class because it won't count for required course work since it is only a survey course. Also, most PA schools want to make sure the school is REGIONALLY accredited, so make sure it's in your region as far as universities go. That's my two cents. Good luck!

  20. I passed out for 3 hours when I got back home. However, that said, they were all really nice and inviting. Not sure how I did though, considering I was definitely my own worst enemy today, being overly nervous and everything.

  24. Great thing about the online bio chemistry class that you’re taking is that you don’t have to suffer through organic chemistry I’m sure any That anything you need you can always look up in terms of organic chemistry go for it

  25. I chose a different school that I decided was a better fit for me! I chose Yale, you can see my thought process a bit if you click on my profile and go to posts on other topics. It's close to home for me, and I really loved it when I interviewed. It just felt right, and ultimately I went with my gut/where I think I'll be most comfortable. I also loved the learning style. But it was a very very difficult decision, as I loved Duke as well.

  26. Well said, Vane1021, this is the best advice for the interview! They just want to get to know you and your motives for choosing this line of work.

  31. One week after returning from our Honeymoon, my wife and I loaded everything we owned (not much) into a two-wheeled U-Haul and moved 500 miles from home so I could go to graduate school. We quickly found that, when we were together, everything around us was “home,” no matter where we were physically. She got a job and, together, we met met new friends. We became midwesterners, and still are. We will be married 50 years next summer. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  32. For those of you interviewing next Tuesday, November 7th, please send me a message if you’re interested in meeting a few first years in the program for an informal meet and greet the evening before your interview. It’s a busy week for us, but we would love to meet with whoever is interested at the Mare Island Brewing Company (about 5mins from campus) at 5:00pm on November 6th. This would be very informal and has nothing to do with your interview. It is more for you to ask us questions you may have about the program, what it's like to be a student etc. and meet some fellow interviewees so you a

  35. Sure! I'm 31, have 7+ years of healthcare experience as an ASCP-certified medical laboratory scientist, degree in medical technology with many science courses, 3.94 GPA and GRE 308/4.0. Great on paper but I truly struggle with interviews! I have three more interviews and am still waiting to hear back from two schools.

  38. Hi Everyone! I'm the vice president of the Class of 2020 and I'll be checking the forum periodically to answer the questions that I can. Congratulations to all of you applying this year. That in itself is a huge accomplishment. I'm not far removed from the process so I know what you're going through. Stay encouraged and continue to be genuine to yourself throughout this process. Good luck! :)

  39. Hello everyone My name is Ben and I'm a current first year in the SMU MPA program. I'd like to set some expectations for all of you. First off, Samuel Merritt University has an AMAZING PA program. It truly does. We just finished our first round of exams, so I'm still recovering from sleep deprivation, but I'm pretty sure I'm in love with Samuel Merritt and all my classmates. That being said, the application process can be annoying and will test your patience. What you need to know is that there is a big difference between the PA program and the Samuel Merritt University main off

  42. Got an email from South asking if I wanted to remain on the waitlist. I'm assuming that they're trying to shorten the waitlist so they don't offer a seat to someone who has already been accepted elsewhere. I think this might mean that the waitlist is rolling. Good luck to everyone still on the waitlist hoping for that phone call!

  44. Hi folks, Here are some facts, and I hope this quells any rumors or hearsay... We are reviewing applications now, and do so continuously, scoring and ranking them according to our published criteria, as noted on the website. We plan on holding general interviews in February and possibly March. We may conduct a round of interviews for the highest ranking candidates in November. Candidates are ranked based on published criteria (not just GPA)... From the Admissions section of the website: Students receive higher points in the application process for the following:

  45. More specifically interview schedule- 2 weeks in October 1 week in November 1 week in December 1 week in January this is the current plan, it's possible it could change. Oh and don't be discouraged if you haven't heard something but someone else who applied after you has already received an invitation. There is a group of faculty reviewing applications...they each get a pile, and the pile grows :) They aren't necessarily reviewed in order. And each person reviewing isn't reviewing the exact same number each day. Reviewing applications is an art, not a scie

  47. Current first year here at NSU JAX: First off, let me start off by saying how embarrassing it is that I have to use my valuable study time to respond to this temper tantrum of a post. It seems like all the professionalism lectures clearly didn't teach you anything. BACKGROUND HISTORY or what CurrentStudent isn't telling you Select individuals in the current second year class had access to a lengthy test bank that contained all of the didactic exams, EOR's, and OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Exam) scenarios available to them. Once the program was made aware of this, they sudde

  48. Some residencies specify that prior experience is an asset and, logically, it would help, from a competitive point of view, if you had specific experience in the field. Having said that, if cardiology is really the practice specially you want, you should be able to do some soul searching and find a way to articulate why this is what you want, i.e why you have a passion for cardiology, why you would be good at it, and how you would make a contribution. That makes your Personal Statement especially important since you won't have some clever anecdotes that have become so popular in PS
