  1. Be yourself for sure! They can tell when you’re faking it and they catch on to inconsistencies. Also, consider that they are on an interview for you too so take time to really think about what you want to get out of your experience in PA school and take time to make questions that cater to those needs. Because at the end of the day, you don’t want to get into just any school. You want to make sure that whatever school you’re giving 2-3 years of your life to will be worth it.
  2. If by March you haven’t heard anything, I would call or email to check on your application. Someone’s got lost in my class so you never know.
  3. Not sure but I know they don’t give out all of the invites at once. Some people might reject or reschedule as well, so things are always changing.
  4. The Facebook group will be made for you guys by the NEW STUDENT CHAIR around July. Until then you can start a new forum post on here to communicate with each other!
  5. No, they are always going over applicants. There are people in my class who didn’t receive an invite until April or May. Don’t lose hope! There is still a chance.
  6. The next interview will be in February.
  7. I'm not sure exactly when you will hear because it depends per candidate. Mercer is constantly evaluating applicants though. No answer can definitely still be a good thing.
  8. Hi @Ktowe5 Correct. They no longer do the MMI style. Because of this, I am not sure what types of questions are asked (my interview had MMI style questions). What I do know is that every interviewee that has gone through the group interview said it was fun. It's more of a discussion/debate style apparently. So I would think ethical/situational questions would be presented here.
  9. There is a group interview as well as a traditional two on one interview. You will also be able to ask current students questions in the student panel.
  10. Hope you applied. If you haven't, it's still not too late. Admissions is constantly reviewing applications
  11. They probably want you to tell them more about yourself. So anything that you didn't get to tell them in the application. Also I take that opportunity to explain any weak points in my application. So maybe why I took anatomy twice. Or why I got a C in organic chem etc.
  12. Hey @kamelia! Mercer likes to look at the patient as a whole, so they're not really big on one particular thing. I will say that they want you to at least meet the requirements. Students who are under the requirements won't be considered for an interview.
  13. Loved meeting all of you at the interview today! Nice to put some faces to the names Congrats on completing the interview process for Mercer! The hardest part is over. All you need to do now is relax. Hopefully they will return to everyone with something within the next month. If you don't hear anything don't panic. If you haven't heard anything, your interview is going to be considered for the next class at least until May. No news can be good news ! Again, if you need anything let me know ! Follow our class' instagram for the inside scoop on student life ! @MERCERPA2021
  14. It is definitely not too late for you to apply. There are some people in my class who didn't apply until March. I believe it is rolling admission because our school reviews the interviewees the week after interview day. A lot of people get their acceptance before the next interview date. Depending on how many people get accepted each time determines how many interview dates there are but on average there has been one a month and 2 in May . So 7.
