  1. Part of it was just the general vibe because at other student panels I have been to the students have been so enthusiastic and proud of their program with so many specific reasons why they chose it. When someone asked why they chose stanford over other programs 3 people said they didn't get in anywhere else and one person said they were set to go to duke but then chose stanford because it's closer to her family and she has children who it would be nice to have support taking care of. And when asked whether the stanford name was worth the cost one student literally replied that the name of where you graduate from doesn't matter much. Don't get me wrong I think the facilities were incredible, the faculty seemed amazing and the electives seemed like a very unique opportunity- I was just disappointed by that one aspect of the interview day
  2. I have not, but did anyone else feel like the student panel was pretty negative? I loved the info session and tour but I felt kind of discouraged after that part
  3. I don't think so! I know there is still an interview date in November and there may be one in december too
  4. 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!
  5. 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!
  6. 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!!!
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. Just got an interview as well! Chose the September 26 date!
  10. 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!
