  1. What an amazing group!! I’m so excited for everyone. I won’t be able to make it - I was accepted to another school so I cancelled my Medex interview hoping that another applicant could have a chance to interview. Good luck y’all!!
  2. Just saw this - about to board my flight. I’ll see you there! -nickie
  3. I was able to get out of teaching a class, so I can make it to dinner! I’m already daydreaming about pesto naan..... mmmm... can’t wait to meet y’all!
  4. Yeah! I have an interview at Medex the day before so I’ll be driving down - an early morning meetup could work! There’s a coffee shop at the hospital just a couple of blocks away from the school, and a coffee shop on the first floor of the school, and a Starbucks also but it doesn’t have indoor seating. Unsure of the hours of each. We have to be there at 8?
  5. Yeah I think 5:30 or 6 would be great and may even allow more people to attend it looks like Can’t wait to meet everyone!
  6. Hey thank you for coordinating this! 4:30 might be a bit early for me as I was planning on getting in a hike at Zion to ease the nerves a bit, but will check in as this gets closer. The food and opportunity to meet y'all both sound amazing!
  7. If anyone that is interviewing on 11/4 wants to get together for dinner on 11/3, let me know! You can text me at (360) 393-9752. Can’t wait to meet y’all! -nickie
  8. Hi!! I’m driving up from Portland late the night before, so will meet y’all on the 22nd! There’s an AMAZING Indian food restaurant in the U district called Cedars. Their pesto naan and mango curry are some of my favorite foods I’ve eaten. Also, Aladdin’s gyrocery on the Ave has top notch gyros. Enjoy!!
  9. Does anyone know what the interview style is like? Some other schools I'm interviewing at are MMI, so I just want to make sure I'm ready for that in **less than two weeks**!! EEK!
  10. I just got my invite this morning and will be there on 11/4 - good luck everyone!
  11. Hey everyone waiting to hear from OHSU - I reached out today as it marks ten weeks since submission for me. I received a response back pretty quickly stating they are behind and it will most likely take another few weeks before I hear anything back. They said that all applications will be reviewed by 11/8, so at least there is a little bit of information to soothe our worried minds. Good luck everyone!
  12. Over 20,000 hours of patient care mostly as a medic, a couple few thousand more hours of other healthcare experience, shadowed PAs in 5 or so specialties, have volunteered pretty consistently with the food bank, BBBS, and some other things, 3.4 overall, 3.6 science, just finished my bachelors this summer.
  13. I’ll be there! I’m flying in from Portland on Friday and will probably head up to Zion for a hike. I leave early Sunday morning.
  14. Hi! Not sure if you check this forum still, but thought I'd ask - what has your experience been like so far in the program? Thanks!
  15. Does this mean there will be an interview date past 12/1? I am also waiting for a response.
  16. Hi all! I will be one of the applicants without a bachelor’s degree this year. If I enroll in a bachelor’s program at Pacific, will it hurt my chance of acceptance to their PA program? It would mean that I would have to drop the bachelor’s program because it runs through summer semester. A friend brought this up as a possible concern thinking that the PA program wouldn’t want to harm the numbers of another program at the same school, but I hadn’t thought of it before and now I’m a bit worried. However, I don’t want to cross my fingers and hope to get in, and then not get in, and then not have been working on my bachelor’s degree so that I can apply to several schools next year. Any thoughts or feedback greatly appreciated!
  17. On the main 2017 app cycle post a few people have said they’ve received invites for Tacoma interview #2 on 12/9.
  18. Hey y'all!! Looks like there are a bunch of us medics in this applicant pool! Paramedic for six years and was a medical assistant in Orthopedics for a few years before that. I love playing outside and eating all the food! I just moved back to Portland a few months ago after spending the last six years in Raleigh, NC. I was reading the Tacoma forum from last year and it looked like their first interview was 12/10 with a second one later in January. Invites seemed to go out towards the first half of November.
