    2018-2019 Cycle

    I am still on the waitlist - haven't heard anything. Should I consider this a rejection since Oct. 20 has passed?

    Application Cycle 2018-2019

    I have an interview 11/6! How long after your interviews was it before you heard you were accepted?

    Quality of PC Hours

    Honestly, I think those are good quality PC hours. And if you don't have anything specific to talk about in your essay about the patients, that's fine. I briefly brought up my overall experiences as an STNA in my personal statement, but I didn't talk about anything specific (like "Mary just really impacted me because..." haha!). Just emphasize your strengths in your personal essay - don't try to "fit the mold" by only focusing on your patient care.

    Wait-listed - good or bad?

    You were waitlisted after interviewing? I wasn't even interviewed...I was put straight on the waitlist. The list thing is a good idea. I have heard of several people doing that and I plan to do the same. I haven't had any interviews yet but I have one coming up.

    Question regarding PCE

    What type of contact did you have with the patients? Like, what exactly did you do?
  10. I had mostly volunteer hours (in a hospital) and shadowing, but only about ~300-400 hours as a CNA, which is somewhat low compared to a lot of people. A lot of schools like you to have 500-2000 hours of paid experience, so I was a bit nervous about that. Anyway, I have interviews coming up, so apparently it was good enough. I didn't apply to schools that required thousands of hours of experience, though, because even adding my volunteer/shadowing hours didn't add up to quite that much. I would definitely try to get some hours under your belt, though. I think it's important to have some at LEAST for your own benefit, but it also shows that you have diversity.
  11. I was wait-listed for one of the programs I applied to...has anyone had experience with that? I am guessing it's a semi-good thing - at least I haven't been rejected! I'm just not sure what to think about it. Thoughts? Thanks!

    GI Bill Question

    Has anyone used the post 9/11 GI bill as a dependent? I will be using my soon-to-be husband's GI bill for PA school, and am just looking to see if anyone else has done this. If so, how soon did you have to have that information to the PA school? Was it an easy process? Thanks in advance!

  14. Hi, I am wondering if anyone has suggestions on how to stay up to date with current healthcare news/events for preparing for PA school interviews? Are there any particular websites/subscriptions that anyone would recommend? Thanks!
