  1. Definitely doesn’t mean you’re out of the running! Some rolling admissions start interviewing in June, others much later like November! You can look at the school specific thread to see if they started inviting people to interview under “physician assistant schools” but even then there was one school that people who applied after me started getting invited to interview before me and I still got one!
  2. There was 30 people and they said they would have 4-5 interview sessions total! I had a great experience at the interview it was laid back and conversational and the faculty and facilities seem great!
  3. I just got an invite for September 20/21 but I have an interview already that day so I am hoping they will let me come to the october date!!!
  4. They gave two September dates and 3 October ones so a big variety but she said to email with what options work for you and I haven’t gotten a confirmed date out of the ones I said I was available for
  5. I never said that working with PAs doesn’t have benefits, I actually said that I worked alongside PAs at my job as an MA and that I wrote about how I worked with them in my personal statement as well as my job description in CASPA. This had a huge impact on my decision to apply to PA school, however, some schools do have minimum shadowing hour requirements and if you’re being paid as an MA that is counting towards PCE and not shadowing when you’re logging hours in CASPA.
  6. Just got an interview as well! Chose the September 26 date!
  7. Cgpa/sgpa 3.97 and about 1,300 hours of PCE!
  8. Scribing is not usually considered PCE. if you want to diversify your hours you can get your CNA and keep your PT tech job until you finish the certification! I have half my hours from being a rehab aide which is essentially the same thing however i would say i spend 90% of my time with patients doing exercises and such and I like the job!
  9. Got an email today giving a status update saying that after a preliminary review I would likely be sent an interview invite soon. They said they interview on Tuesdays throughout the fall with the first date being September 10
  10. If you’re on the clock during those times then it doesn’t count. I did this too as an MA and I wrote about it in my PS and the job description but shadowing needs to be when you’re not being paid and your only responsibility is to observe
