  5. So I get a call this morning from an unknown caller ID. I excuse myself from clinic, run outside so excited to answer hoping it’s them, heart beating so fast... and it’s a scam call. So much anxiety y’all lol.

  6. Interviewed yesterday. It really was the easiest interview you’ll probably have this season. 30 min blocks and you speak with two faculty members. They don’t have any particular questions they ask per say, they just ask you things about your resume or personal statement. Very relaxed. Rest of the day is breeze. Enjoy yourself and good luck!

  7. How far out of school are you? Are you used to carrying 21+ hour courseloads with lab sciences? If so, you may be fine. If you've not worked that hard on JUST school in a while, you might want to ignore the "take it easy" advice and begin honing your study skills back up. WHAT you study isn't that important; A&P is a good a thing as any. What's more important is that you can spend 30-40 hours per week sitting in class doing death by powerpoint AND then spend 20-30 MORE hours studying outside of class. Each week. For ~15 months.

  8. Congratulations to everyone who received an interview . I will be interviewing October 28. I read it is a group interview. If anyone wants to meet up a day/night before, send me a message. I think if we get comfortable with our interview group we will do better during the process. Good luck to everyone !

  9. For those with interviews next month: be confident, be YOU. They really emphasize how they just want to get to know you. Do your research on the program, dress to impress, and arrive early! Good luck to those interviewing next month!

  11. Surgery residents are a hell of a lot cheaper than PAs because they are free. Totally paid for by the federal government. Of course they are a lot less efficient and skilled than a seasoned PA but the surgery chiefs dont care because they want the free labor and $$$ from the government.

  12. I haven't either and two other people I've talked to as well haven't. It was around day 5 after the interview they started to send out acceptance and rejections according to last cycles forum, so any day now. Hopefully tomorrow before the weekend!

  13. I was accepted at Campbell two weeks ago and will not be putting down a deposit as I’ve already been accepted to other programs that I felt were a better fit. If you are on the waitlist I hope one of you gets a call for my spot

  14. I also didn't get anything other than the automatically generated email so I called this AM to check and they said they had it. Lets set the meet up for 7pm on 10/25 at 7 Seas (2101 Jefferson Ave, Tacoma, WA 98402). I will try to get there a little earlier to claim a table and put up some sort of UW something and see if I can get some current students/recent graduates to come chat with folks.

  17. While I’ve heard about the importance they place on GPA as well, it is definitely not the only deciding factor because I have a 3.96 science and 3.95 overall GPA and did not receive an interview invite. Best of luck though and hopefully we’ll hear back about a second round of invites soon!

  20. Totally agree with you! Be yourself and remember to have fun as cliché as that sounds haha! Not only were all the faculty/alum/students really kind and welcoming, all the interviewees I talked to also made the interview day really fun!

  27. I think I submitted around the second week of July - I can’t remember the exact date! Try not to worry, they said they host interviews through December, and I assume they kind of select them as they go!

  35. @Zacarias I interviewed December 4th and heard back on my portal in the afternoon on December 12th! Most hear back though about a week or two after I did if I remember correctly And it’s no problem! Let me know if you have any more questions.

  36. @SecondTime BS in Athletic Training; I have done 1 year of AT work and I am now working as a physician extender for spine surgeons. GPA: 3.72 Science GPA: 3.69 Patient Care: 2,000+ (as an AT, physician extender, working with an NP, mission trip to Costa Rica) Evaluations: 5 ( 2 academic, 1 preceptor, 1 PA, 1 NP) PA Shadowing: 500 (Shadowed in plastic surgery, general surgery) In my undergrad I held a lot of leadership roles on campus and was very involved. I was also an athlete and I've heard that many universities like that because it shows a lot of qualities such as time management. So if you were an athlete make sure you put some emphasis on that! I agree, everyone has their strengths and weaknesses and you have to see what is going to set you apart from everyone else. I also think that getting your application in early can really benefit you as a lot of schools are rolling admissions! If you have any other questions let me know! Good luck!

  40. Thanks. I can be surprisingly stubborn when I am motivated by the health and well being of my patients, which is what took me out of IT security and into medicine in the first place. I've got enough experience in (passed my 10,000 hours some time ago) that I am going to keep burrowing into that niche, where I can make my employer money AND do good medicine.

  41. Last year we met up at 7 seas, it worked well since its a large space and doesn't require reservations. I would vote for that again. Harmon would require reservations. I'm local to Tacoma so I'm happy to go wherever. I interviewed at Tacoma last year. Hoping this year goes better! And yes, its a group panel interview, you will be interviewed 3 times in groups of 3. There are 2 interviewers at each panel. Each panel in theory has a theme but all 3 of mine were just get to know you/ask questions about your application. Some people did get asked "what would you do in this situation" type questions. You probably get about 15-20 mins of "air time" per panel. They want to make sure you're not monopolizing the time, that you interact with your panel members etc.

  42. Wow. Must be nice to live and practice in an area where HOMELESSNESS, FOOD AVAILABILITY, POVERTY are NOT issues you need to address ! I practice rural medicine and these are daily issues I discuss. If gender identity, climate change (YES IT IS affecting my patients: increased fire danger due to dry conditions, now anytime high winds occur, which is almost daily during this time of year, the electric company is shutting down power to avoid another Paradise fire situation) sexual preference, racism are things my patients want and need to discuss, you bet I take the time to discuss them.

  43. Hi Everyone, Just wanted to say good luck with the application process. Last year I got an interview offer in mid October so I think we are probably still a few weeks out from hearing anything.

  45. I received my interview invite at the beginning of October for the November 2nd interview. I got my acceptance call a few days before Thanksgiving. It is a fantastic program though. They do really care about you as a person and as a student and want to see you succeed.

  46. Today I had to say goodbye to an old friend and great PA who was a pioneer in PA practice ownership here in Texas Mr. Richard Branson. Richard passed at 1PM today after a long fight with chronic heart disease. Richard and I became fast friends and thick as thieves many years ago when we both served on the TAPA board. Probably more than any other 1 PA he was responsible for the strategy and leg work that achieved the successful passage of legislation granting us scheduled drugs prescribing rights. Since then Richard started his own practice in San Antonio in a very busy and competitive market and then created what he called a practice incubator, a written guide that provided guidance and resources for other PAs who wanted their own practice. He gave this away, along with his personal support and advice, to any PA who wanted to strike out on their own. He never asked a penny or a thank you from anyone he helped and there were many. He was also a driving force in organizing and funding a law suit in federal court that stopped the medical board from, essentially, taking practices away from PAs that owned them because they weren't majority owned by physicians. He was a quirky genius and I feel sad for the people who couldn't see past the quirk to the gold underneath. PAs in Texas are better for having him among us and are just a bit diminished today with his passing. So long old friend.

  47. I took mine through university of San Diego. It was a 2 credit, graduate level ( I have no clue why) self paced course. I did it in 3 days and it was accepted everywhere. It was literally just 25 modules with a quiz at the end. https://pce.sandiego.edu/search/publicCourseSearchDetails.do?method=load&courseId=38327378
