  3. Hi Charleen, I'm sorry you didn't get in this cycle but don't give up! Your stats look good to me. You have a great GPA and a lot of volunteer hours. One area that I believe may be hurting you is the lack of paid direct patient care hours. Volunteering and research is great, but unfortunately many programs require hands on experience as a provider, whether that be as a CNA, PT aide, EMT, nursing etc. I would suggest that you obtain a license in something that will allow you to be directly responsible for patient care. Bonus points if it allows you to work with or be around PAs. Another
  4. Out of curiosity, was anyone accepted who did not attend the interview? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Canceling my interview in January. Hopefully that opens up a spot for someone! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Congratulations everyone! Received my acceptance as well! I had to reread the email to make sure it wasn't a mistake. So happy and excited.
  7. Was waitlisted as well. Congratulations to those who've been accepted! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. They haven't sent out any acceptances yet. My group was the first to interview on October 20. They said between now and next spring, they are interviewing at least 8 or so more groups. I can't remember exactly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. They emphasized that a large part of admission hinges on whether they feel a candidate is a match/fit for their program. So I wouldn't worry too much about giving the right answers. They just want to know who you are. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. The prompts were very diverse. They use a variety of ways to ask questions and assess you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. MMI is many multiple interviews. We had 8 mini interviews that were timed. Each interview was with one or two faculty. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I interviewed on October 21. The interview consisted of MMI, group interview, and a couple of individual writing activities. All I can is that the questions were designed to really asses who you are and your motivations for wanting to become a PA. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. If you take the Amtrak, it's about $30 one way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Touro is a dual MPA/MPH program. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. That's the clarification email. It's odd and very misleading indeed if they emailed that to everyone, including people who didn't get invites. Have you tried checking your spam folder to make sure you didn't miss your invite? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
