  1. From being on the bottom half of the interview waitlist to being accepted at the SLC Campus!!! I couldn't be more excited!!!
  2. I didn't think early acceptance was going to be a thing! I'm super jealous but congrats!! I really hope I did well enough at the interview on the 14th to get an acceptance too!
  3. I've heard from current students that the test doesn't hold much weight, that apparently they only use it as a tiebreaker if they can't decide between two applicants.
  4. They emailed me today! When I first was put in the interview waitlisted I asked for more information and all they said they could tell me was there was about 30 on the list and that I was ranked on the bottom half. They said they couldn't tell me my exact ranking.
  5. I was on the interview waitlist (the bottom half) and was notified today that I have been invited to interview on the 14th! I'm so surprised and so excited!
  6. Were there any red flags for you guys from Duke that caused you to choose another program?
  7. I think we are all just as anxious for there to be movement on the waitlist! I know I am!
  8. Any fellow waitlistees hear anything?
  9. Crossing my fingers that me and some others who got waitlisted after the first round might hear some good news tomorrow
  10. accepted to duke and interviewing at the U! wow megan, youre aweome haha
  11. Any students on here choose Campbell over Duke? Campbells facilities and simulation technology looks amazing! Duke didn't impress me as much with their building or technology at all, but faculty seems pretty good and I wonder if that Duke name looks good for applying to jobs across the country if I were to move back home. For those who had opportunities at both any thoughts would be appreciated as I contemplate my decision. Thanks!
  12. I interviewed at Dukes PA program this week and was not as impressed as I wish I had been. Now obviously you only get to know a program so well on an interview day, but what unimpressive was their facilities and the lack of technology they use to teach their students. Faculty seemed very supportive. Now my question is how much weight does the DUKE name have on a new grads resume when applying to jobs? Another program I've been accepted to has excellent PANCE rates and incredibly new facilites with awesome simulation technology, which might really help my preparation. Both feel like they could
  13. Im interviewing 9/30 and my wife and I would love to join you guys!
  14. Just wondering for those who have interviewed at Duke previous years, current students, or anyone who knows someone who has interviewed there. Do they do a lot of ethical/situational questions or knowledge of the healthcare system/future of medicine questions?
  15. Hey guys I doubt anyone will see this because it looks like the forum is basically over, but I see a lot of yo ugot scholarships and the website says that each admitted student will receive generous financial help or something along those lines. The tuition is ridiculous, do you mind me asking in average how much people actually pay? I have an interview for this cycle but am debating whether or not to go with the crazy tuition price. Thanks in advance!
  16. So does anyone know about how much students actually end up paying for the program? I mean I feel like the price in insanely high but the website says "Each student admitted to the physician assistant program at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing receives generous financial support for tuition, fees and additional expenses." anyone know someone who went there and actually know how much it ends up costing?
  17. That's great! I'm sure it is awesome and I'm really excited to interview and meet all the students! I appreciate your response!
  18. Hey does anyone know from previous cycles roughly how many they interview each day?
  19. Great! They worried me a bit but I'm really excited!
  20. A friend who was accepted to Duke a couple years ago chose Campbell University (also there in NC) over Duke even though she was accepted because she said that the Duke students she interacted with hat her interview seemed miserable and she has heard they don't have the best reputation as far as being prepared for clinicals. Has anyone heard anything like that from current or former students? Like that it doesn't live up to the hype? Thanks
  21. I just got an interview invite for september 30!
  22. I appreciate everyone's input. The new programs tuition is only 62k vs 90k for the other program. Some people have told me go the cheaper route since you will be a PA no matter what and some have said it's better to play it safe and ensure a quality education. I'm not too worried about the didactic year because it seems like the faculty they have is pretty experienced and have all taught/directed other programs. At this point my number one concern is the rotations. I feel like that will be the most important part of being prepared to practice. The director of clinical education doesn't have an
  23. I received an invitation to interview today but I will most likely. Be turning it down due to other acceptances. Good luck to all of you!!!
