  1. Hey guys! I'm super excited to start PA school in May 2019! With that being said, I'm curious to know what your favorite books are to prep for the exams/PANCE? Some of the first year PA students I've talked to recommended Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy, Blueprints Medicine, and PANCE Prep Pearls. I'm keeping these suggestions on the back burner until PA school starts & if I need some additional information. I would appreciate any other recommendations, thanks!
  2. I applied in June & was just given an interview invite. From the phone call, they said there are only a few interview spots left.
  3. I interviewed back in November, and here are some great tips on what to expect. Pre-interview day You'll meet some of the 1st year students if you plan to go to the social the night before & they're more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the program. Attire is casual, you can wear whatever you want. If you have extra time, find out where exactly the building is on campus. My GPS failed me on interview day & I ended up on the other side of the campus. Interview day Eat breakfast at the hotel/bring some snacks. LMU did provide some snacks, but it wasn't sus
  4. cGPA: 3.68 sGPA: 3.58 , GRE 310 , majored in Biology with 2 minors in Chemistry and Psychology Healthcare experience: Patient care tech (CNA) on Neuroscience (~3,400 hours/2.5 years) ~80 shadowing hours of multiple healthcare providers, ~260 volunteering hours, multiple leadership roles through Pre-PA club, tutoring, & greek organization To all those who are getting discouraged, keep on hustling. The many rejections I have gotten on my first attempt last year lead me to these stats & 2 interview invites thus far this year. I promise if you keep hustling, you'll get in!
  5. Invite to interview January 11th! Ahhhhhh, super excited!!
  6. For those who have an interview next Friday (November 16th), would anyone like to meet up before the mixer with the current students?
  7. I plan on going to the dinner in casual attire, maybe a dress w/ jacket or some dark-wash jeans & a nice top, and business professional on interview day! Also best of luck to those who are interviewing in 2 days! Hope you guys kill it!!
  8. I don't think it's a bad sign that they haven't reviewed it yet. I submitted 08/15 & Garrett said it would be around the beginning of November before they could review mine so I would continue to call every 3-4 weeks to see if your app has been reviewed and given a decision. Best of luck!!
  9. Wow, congratulations!!! I love your dedication/work ethic and you really deserve to be a PA (and you'll be a wicked great one at that) Again, congratulations and best of luck in PA school!!
  10. Best of luck to everyone who got an invite! And for the people who are still waiting, keep on hustling!!
  11. Last cycle, they didn't send rejection letters until May. Based on if they are still doing what they did last year, they have interviews almost every month until then. If you applied to the Nashville campus, the admissions representative can tell you if they have reviewed your application & given a decision. I'm not sure if Knoxville does the same.
  12. I spoke with the admissions coordinator & she said that all initial interview invites were sent out. So theoretically everyone who didn't get an invite are on the waitlist to interview and if someone declines, they send out more invites to the next ones in line. We still have the rest of this month to get a potential interview!
  13. I got an interview invite for November 16th! So excited to see everyone who's interviewing that day as well!
  14. I applied mid August for Nashville, early June for Knoxville. I was getting discouraged too and that's why I called Garrett to see if they even reviewed it or not. Good news: they haven't reviewed it yet so there's still a chance! Bad news, it would probably be until January or later for an interview. PM me if you have any other questions!
  15. I called Garrett to see if my application was reviewed yet. Unfortunately Garrett said that my application probably won't be reviewed in time for a potential interview in November. Next interview dates are in January, February, and March.
