  1. Hello. I had 4 interviews last cycle. I received 3 rejections and 1 alternate list. I am very thankful for being placed on alternate list, because it's not a straight no and I am still being considered. (Staying positive) The program did not mention how many candidates are placed on alternate list. It just says "small group." I will continue to apply for the next application cycle, but I was just wondering if anyone got accepted after placed on alternate list. The program starts in June, and it's already mid-April.
  2. Hello. Anyone knows how many applicants are invited to the supplemental application and interview? their class size is only 20 and I was just wondering. Thank you.
  3. Hi. I have been working (and currently still working) at pediatric office as a full time medical assistant, performing vision/hearing test, prick patients' finger for hematocrit levels, and other medical assistant duties. Also each year, I took classes to refresh the courses that has been old, mostly science classes. I don't do often, but I do participate in health mobile fair volunteering for the free physical examinations. I believe these are the reasons why I got the interviews each year, because I do got some credentials. (just my opinion) I have not shadowed new PAs after my first application cycle (I shadowed 100 hours). Maybe I should try to shadow more PAs. Thank you.
  4. Hi all, I posted this on 'ask PA admissions director', but I also wanted some advices and help from applicants who had similar experiences. This application cycle was my third attempt applying to pa school. Even though I had low overall GPA, from my improvements in postbacc grades (over 60 credit hours) i was able to get interview invites past 3 application cycles from 2-3 schools. However after the interview, the only notification i got was rejections (no waitlist either). I definitely don't want to give up. And because I'm getting interview invites, my application shows that i do have some chances to get accepted. I wrote all the common interview questions down and my responses to practice, read the "how to ace the pa school interview" book, mock interviews at career center & with friends. I'm unsure what to do now after 3 years of rejections after the interview. PA school is only getting harder, and getting more competitive every year. Is it just my interview process? Or my overall low gpa(barely over 3.0) might be the reason? What is the most important characteristic the admission committees look for from the interview? Any advice would be great. Thank you.
  5. To paadmissions, Hello. First of all, thank you for helping pre-pa students out. This application cycle was my third attempt applying to pa school. Even though I had low overall GPA, from my postbacc grades i was able to get interview invites past 3 application cycles from at least one school. However, after the interview i only got rejection letters. I definitely don't want to give up. And because I'm getting interview invites, i feel that i do have some chances to get accepted. I wrote all the common interview questions down and my responses to practice, read the "how to ace the pa school interview" book, mock interviews at career center & with friends. I'm unsure what to do now after 3 years of rejections after the interview. Is it just my interview process? Or my overall low gpa might be the reason? What is the most important characteristic the admission committees look for from the interview? Any advice would be great. Thank you.
