  1. No problem at all. Personally, I did not do much prior to starting school. Many of the 1st year and 2nd year students at my program advised against doing anything school related prior to starting when I asked them. I'll tell you the same. I understand if you're trying to keep your head in school mode but nothing that you really do right now can prep you of what's to come. If you absolutely HAVE to do something, I recommend brushing up on your anatomy but don't stress yourself out over it. PA school progresses at such a fast pace that you don't really have time to immerse yourself in what you're learning. Anatomy was only 6 weeks for us but we had class and lab almost everyday. Perhaps go over some material that you weren't really confident in when you took it before. I hope this helps P.S. Please take time off and RELAX.
  2. Hi Pre-PAs! I was in your shoes just a little more than a year ago! I know I had lots of questions about being a student or the process of becoming a student in general that I hoped would be answered by browsing these forums. Today is the first day of Spring Break for me. It's a breath of fresh air not having to study for an upcoming exam! I have roughly 3.5 more months of didactic. Feel free to ask my anything about school, becoming a student, or just life in general. I hope this helps answer questions that any of you may have. Cheers!
  3. I just received an interview invitation! However I am going to decline and hopefully that opens up a spot for one of you guys! Best of luck everyone as this year cycle continues to advance. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  4. There are 2 parking garages that interviewees can use. I had to park on the 6th floor and getting out was a pain but you'll have no issue finding a spot. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

  8. Hey guys!!!! I just got the acceptance call from Karen 10 minutes ago. I'll definitely be accepting my seat. Congrats to all those still in the running! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  9. Just received an email this morning regarding the CASPer. In essence, the committee is NOT taking the test into consideration this year when they rank potential candidates; however, everyone that is interviewing or has interviewed is required to take the test.
  10. I got an interview off the waitlist a month ago but didn't get accepted. So head up! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

  14. Ah I'm sorry to hear that. I interviewed this past Tuesday so I guess I won't hear back until next week. Keep your head up high! Theres still plenty of time. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  15. I asked about the check status feature and she told me that it was only for those that have been accepted. She disclosed that my application is still under review. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  16. Did you guys interview? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  17. Did not get a link to the portal although I did interview already. Maybe I deleted it? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  18. The interview process was relaxing more than anything. The faculty don't ask you puzzling or nerve racking by any means. The interviewers I talked with wanted to get to know me better - specifically things I mentioned in my narrative. Enjoy the process and get to know your potential future classmates. The program is hospitable and very impressive! Good luck to all those still interviewing Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  19. I also received an interview offer for the same day! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  20. I received the same email and yesterday guys! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  21. I was also placed on the interview waitlist a month ago. Haven't heard back since. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  22. The biggest mistake you can make is NOT improving your application year to year. You literally will look the exact same on paper when you submit your app which can actually have a negative impact. I would say your biggest focus is your PCE/HCE. A year's worth of full time work (40 hrs/week) is approx. 2000 hours. You can use the same template for your personal statement but absolutely change it to reflect what's changed since your last app. Take the GRE like others have recommended because doing so will only open that many more doors for your unless your only applying to schools that don't require it. Good luck!
  23. I submitted on 6/3 and haven't heard a word since. Anyone else in the same boat?
  24. I was emailing back and forth with an adcom officer and she informed me that they DO NOT utilize rolling admissions so it's best to wait until everything is ready to go on our ends to hit the submit button. Hope this helps!
