  1. I am enrolled for 2014... Do you know if they have started a facebook group yet?
  2. I applied and got an interview with a 3.65 overall GPA and a 3.35 science GPA. My medical hours were around 2700 as a psych assistant, group home counselor and a CNA. I had volunteered roughly 1500 hours and had shadowed extensively. My impression was that they look for a well-rounded student who is motivated and will be active in their community in the future (whether it be to advocate for the PA career or to do service work). For your application, I would focus on a unique and interesting personal statement that will set you apart from others. When you interview, I would recommend reading up on PA school interviewing and have the reasons why you want to go to Yale prepared. This was my first interview so I was more nervous than I should have been. So relax and have fun with it and good luck!

  8. I spoke with an alum and she said to stick as close to the campus as possible. She lived only a mile and a half away and drove to school but she said that with traffic it could take 20-30 minutes. I am thinking renting out a house is a good idea and Manchester is relatively cheap.

  10. Yes, an e-mail is sent out after your deposit that states that they will create a private Facebook page for all accepted students to join in the summer. Did you receive an confirmation e-mail of your deposit and seat acceptance?

  12. I got accepted as well :). I moved all the way from Minnesota to the East Coast with my husband last fall so I really had to research the programs I was applying to. Its a great primary care program, however, I have met excellent surgical PAs that came from Manchester as well. For anyone interviewing, this was probably the more relaxed of the interviews I have had. I wouldn't be nervous going in- they just want to get to know you. Its a one-on-one interview so just be personal and be yourself. There is a secret hidden gem of a book written by Andrew Rodican as well that was a great help in preparing for my interviews. Good luck to anyone interviewing and I look forward to meeting fellow classmates :)
