  3. Hey Kelly, My understand was Friday is the day they'll let us ask know. They're making decisions not just I us that interviewed this last week, but also the people that were waitlisted... Some of those folks that have been waitlisted have been waiting for months to hear if they got in or not. Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk

  5. Awesome Jeremy! What time are you getting in? and where are you staying?
  6. Hello all! I'm going to get a group text going at some point today so we can all be on the same page. I noticed the taptalk notifications are a little shaky at best. Throw down your name and digits if you want to be in the group chat. I'm pretty excited to meet all of you and get this process going. One week 'til the big day!!!!! Tom R. P.S. I'm off work Tuesday 1/17 and if any of you would like to tour around the city that day or the 18th, I could be your guide. I live in Northgate (North Seattle) and I still enjoy exploring my city. For you Tacoma applicants (which includes me), if you do not know much about Tacoma, I grew up there and can fill you in with all the great things about "the City of Destiny" as well. :)
  7. Hello Everyone! I too got an interview on the 19th and I am curious, is this for applicants for the Tacoma and Anchorage sites? Did any of you apply for the masters program? I applied to just the Tacoma program. Anyways, I'd love to meet all of you before the interview, it looks like we're planning the day before, which works for me. I live in North Seattle, so if I can help any of you out in anyway let me know. Just contact me on here via pm. If any of you live in the area and would like to meet up soon let me know, my schedule is fairly flexible. Good luck to you all! Tom Riordan

  9. How about we meet upp the first week of the new year? I'm down for Monday the 2nd, Tuesday 3rd, Friday 6th, or Saturday 7th.
  10. Hello all! I just received an invite to attend the Jan. 19th MEDEX interview. Anyone else? Tom R.
  11. Good Morning Everyone, Yesterday I attended the re-applicant information session at UW in Seattle (March 23rd) and I would like to compare notes and find out if any questions get answered. I fell victim to the CASPA mess last fall, but I do have several areas that I can improve in. Anyways, I am going to jot down some of my notes and takeaways from the session. Feel free to critique and add some points. PLEASE call me out if I'm wrong. Academic Prereqs - STAYING THE SAME!!! :) -Consider taking recommended classes biochem genetic social science -Talk to / Shadow a PA Know roles of PA in different specialtiesThis one received many underlines for me because I work with a bunch of PAs so I did not feel the need to shadow anybody.. certainly room for improvement their. Apparently, this was a sizable area that people fell short during the interview; not clearly knowing the role of a PA in different specialties. -CASPA's Mess CASPA failed a lot of us this last fall 100 applicants were left unverified until November because they did not click the button "verify".... This is promised to be hemmed up by the hiring of 60 plus people Positive note - Allegedly, are caspa info will be retained for next year except references. Even verified transcripts will not need to be resubmitted ​-Spokane will be Master's only -Pay attention to current issues affection PAs and healthcare I have more minor thing. Please post what you have!
  12. I'm going to start a re-applicant thread for 2017 - Tacoma. I went to the March 23rd re-applicant info session and got some good info. Maybe we can all compare what we've learned. I did not get invited to an interview, in short, because CASPA kept losing my transcripts. I guess the MEDEX administration and all of the schools that use CASPA were very disappointed with their performance this last fall. Let's keep this going! You all seem like awesome people and hopefully we make this happen next year! Tom

  14. Preoperative Support Technologist in anesthesia. What jobs have you held in surgery? This is my first step out of emergency medicine. My only experience in surgery has been in trauma situations and getting my intubations during paramedic training. I'm pretty excited about his opportunity, I've been working nights and I've wanted to make the switch to days without taking a pay cut.
  15. Thanks for your support! I'm trying to stay positive. I just had an interview for a job in surgery so if I don't get in this year, at least I'll get some new experience. I think its a brilliant idea for those of you that get interviews to meet up before hand and get to know each other. From my understand, you'll be tasked with getting to know the people you interview with and tell why they are a good candidate for medex.
  16. Hello all! Congrats to those who have been invited to an interview. I applied in August, however, they keep losing my transcripts (CASPA has become the bane of my existence), so my application is not verified... Hopefully a miracle happens and they post my application in the next few days. If not I know what to expect and prepare for in terms of the CASPA process. Good luck to you Medex - Tacoma campus hopefuls! Tom R.
