  1. The guided tours are optional, and will be happening after the interviews. If your interview time is 9:30, the tour will be taking place at 12. If you are in the earlier time slot (8 AM), the guided tour will be taking place at 10:30. Hope that helps.
  2. I'm a current student who will be there for that time slot for checking in interviewees: I will be getting there at 8:45 (you certainly don't have to be that early), but I would advise leaving yourself at least a half-hour window and trying to arrive by 9:00 AM or thereabouts. I'm double-checking with our interview chair as to what time we'll be doing the tour for you guys, and I'll let you know.
  3. Each interview you have is individually about 15 minutes from what I remember.
  4. I think all current students and others with a Wayne uniqname received that email. I just received that email, and I'm a current WSU PAS student.
  5. If it’s like in years past, it will be a short, handwritten essay (maybe a page to a page and a half) basically just to assess your writing style. I think my topic last year was on hospital mergers or something like that.
  6. Congrats to everyone who got invites; this is going to be simultaneously the most exciting and nerve-racking month of your life! Try to relax and enjoy the ride. I’ll have to double-check which I day I volunteered to be there, but I’ll definitely be seeing some of you there for your interview. I don’t know if (or think that) the interview format has changed, but when I interviewed last year, it was two interviews — one with a faculty member and one with a community PA. The questions will be variable, depending on whom you interview with, but expect the usual suspects: “Why
  7. Try to relax and enjoy the anticipation! I know it's tough waiting, but it will all be worth it in the end.
  8. I would be shocked if you didn't hear back one way or another by the next couple of days. Faculty have narrowed down their list, interviews are already scheduled, and the fall MAPA conference is this weekend. For whomever asked, interview invites are sent out via email.
  9. They will email and ask you which days are convenient for you, and if there ends up being a conflict, you can do the interview on an alternate day.
  10. You absolutely should, without question, attend an information session, even if for no other reason than to show to faculty that you have attended an information session.
  11. I'm sure just a date range will be fine -- that's what I had them write in my letter of recommendation when I reapplied ("...has volunteered over for over 50 hours from May 2016-July 2016 / duties included landscaping, gardening, etc.")
  12. I would highly advise doing at least a couple of mock interviews if you are able. If you are still in undergrad, you could conceivably go to the career center and do mock interviews there. When I was preparing for my interview, I did a few mock interviews with friends of mine who were in professional school at the time, as well as with my boss. Whomever you do your mock interview with, make sure they're not throwing you softball questions: you want to be prepared to address any apparent holes in your application, ethical questions, and make sure you understand what it is a PA does. You wo
