  1. FYI they made a NC>>Pfeiffer University page under Schools. Y'all might want to continue this there.
  2. Until they make an official school page for Pfeiffer, just start a new thread on the New Programs page, for this cycle. COVID-19 has been...interesting. The faculty are being very cautious. We moved to all-online mid-semester 1, but then to hybrid-online for semester 2 due to a Physical Examination class that required being physically present. Then when NC Governor Cooper announced that NC was entering Phase II for COVID-19, we moved back into the classroom full time with mandatory distancing and masks. As the cases across the state and in Charlotte have soared upward, we are about to move back to hybrid-online classes (all-online except the components that really need to be done in-person). That will continue through the end of Semester 2. Semester 3 the program hopes to be able to move into the newly constructed Health Sciences Building in Albemarle, and we will be the only program there for a while, so hopefully we will move back to in-person classes there with standard precautions. It has been weird! But the faculty are playing it smart, and doing everything they can to ensure we get the most seamless education possible. As far as I have heard from the adcom, applications are rolling in. Go ahead and apply and assume that if accepted, classes will be unlike anything you've been through before - first of all it's PA school, and secondly it's a freakin pandemic. But the hybrid education is a better option than straight up all-online, which most programs at larger Universities have been forced to move to. Good luck, let us know if you have any other questions.
  3. I made a Facebook Group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/2493129157614173/about/ - copy paste join. Also let me know if you'd be willing to be an admin so it's not all on me. Cheers!
  4. Congrats! That makes at least 4 people that I'm aware of. Good luck to everyone else still waiting to hear!!
  5. I got an email yesterday saying that they had finished the fall interviews for the year but they are having one more in the late spring. They asked if I wanted to remain in the pool for the last round interviews but I've accepted a seat in a another program. So good luck to those staying in the race and congrats to those accepted.
  6. My interview was about an hour long and was led by the program director, the clinical coordinator, and the medical director. I also got to speak with two other members of the faculty and ask any questions I had about the program. I know that there were 6 candidates the day I interviewed, and at least 2-3 days of interviews this round. I was offered a seat three days later via email, with one week to accept or decline. I got a really good feeling from the program, which has been developed over the past 4 years. The faculty I met were friendly, passionate, and had decades of experience. After the first semester at the main campus, the program (and the Occupational Therapy program) will move to the new Health Sciences building 20 minutes away. It will feature a full cadaver lab (not a digital simulation table) and several classrooms and simulation bays with high-fidelity medical models. The first class is slated to seat 25, increasing by 10 students until the class is capped the third year at 45. The program is heavily geared toward providers who want to work in underprivileged areas/populations. Good luck to everyone who applied!
  7. That's interesting! My other interviews had components where we were in groups and components where we were alone. This sounds like a long interview where you are alone with a panel. At one we had to write a timed extemporaneous essay by hand (and I write very slowly by hand). Won't miss that. Good luck!
  8. 1pm - you? I'm about 3hrs away so I will probably drive up day of, instead of staying there the night before.
  9. I got an email today saying that everything I'd submitted had been received by the school and was queued up for the adcom.
  10. I got an email today - interviewed June 21st, placed on the alternate list. Better than a rejection, and no Seat Deposit yet!!
  11. Congrats sjoeread! When is your interview? I've been 'Under Review' for about 5 weeks now.
