  1. I am currently in the process of applying for a CA PA license. I noticed that one of the forms (PA-7) is to be submitted if I have any previous licenses/certifications as a healthcare provider. I totally thought this was for PA licenses in other states but I came across an old post where someone said they sent that form in for an old EMT license. Does anyone know if that's necessary? When I look up the official definition of a healthcare provider, EMT does not fall under the legal definition. Just wanted to make sure bc I got an EMT license many years ago but never worked as one!
  2. Hi, I'm currently a first year in the program! Even though Cornell's program is labeled as having a surgical focus, it definitely does not mean that everyone has to go into surgery! In past years there's usually been maybe half (or less than half) of the class that will go into surgery while everyone else goes into a medicine specialty. That being said, we do get a looooot more exposure to surgery and what it means to be a surgical PA. We take a surgery class throughout all 3 terms in didactic year while other PA schools might only get a few lectures on surgery. Our surgery instructor is a sur
  3. That is correct, Cornell typically holds interview sessions up until December or so and secondaries can get sent out pretty randomly.

They said they will notify people if they have received a scholarship when they send the acceptance letter. But also not to expect too much from scholarships as the pool of money they have from that right now is not as big as they'd like.
  5. @curitibaPA Similar to what everyone else has said, the interview was very standard and relaxed. Super standard questions that you've practiced during your interview prep. I had 3 people on my panel (1 faculty, 1 Stanford PA, and 1 PA student)
  6. Gave up my spot so hopefully someone will be getting an acceptance soon!
  7. Oh my bad you're right there are 36. I forgot to count myself hah. But yes I do also know someone currently in the program who was accepted off the waitlist so there is hope! Not sure about the process or if it is ranked though, sorry.
  8. They recently sent an email to the people who were accepted and there were 35 recipients on the thread. I'm not sure what they decided the final class size would be. But regardless there is still the possibility of being accepted off the waitlist if there is any movement. Hope that helps!
  9. I interviewed on 8/17 and I got accepted yesterday morning!
