  1. Are there any PAs in the Bay Area that would be open to talking about how you got into the field here? I'm a first year PA student and was already into skincare just as a hobby but after my most recent dermatology module I am in love. I think I'm most interested in skin cancer screening, Mohs, and aesthetic derm but very open. I worked in EMS beforehand so I don't have any dermatology experience and would love to hear more about what your day looks like and what your path to Derm was! Open to sitting down for coffee (I am fully vaccinated), zoom, or just talking on here. Thanks, Monica
  2. Congratulations on getting in! Looking forward to getting to know you. For everyone who got an interview invite, it may be in the pizza social email but it is problematic and off-limits to give specific details about the interview day. It would not be fair to others interviewing for only some to have an advantage. You will get a detailed schedule of your day! Practice your interview skills and enjoy the process
  3. Current student here! There are currently plans for a virtual pizza night, but as the pandemic has taught us nothing is set in stone. Follow up emails will include further information for those of you interviewing. For some other questions I've been seeing - I am sure they will address the probationary status in the interview, but the faculty have been working extremely hard and I have no doubt that their work will pay off at this years reassessment. So over the last 6+ months not only have the faculty had to transition to entirely online, but they've also had to go through applications for interviewing while working on the accreditation assessment all during a pandemic. They've been amazing and even with all the stress they've been under the quality of teaching has not gone by the wayside. Good luck to everyone and I'm looking forward to seeing some of you at interviews!
  4. So everyone knows and stops freaking out, I applied in late May last year and didn't get the confirmation letter until December.
  5. I can't say what I would have thought of the Seattle program since I didn't interview there, but everyone I met in Tacoma was great. The faculty were friendly and very personable, and the other candidates as well as current students were hard working and fun. The experiences everyone had were similar to my own and I did find a lot of them to also be in their late 20s and early 30s. The faculty were great, and I did genuinely like Tacoma quite a lot. Close enough to still go to Seattle for a weekend day but return to the more homey and slower paced Tacoma. It was not an easy decision to turn it down, and I highly recommend their program.
  6. I don't think it would put you at a disadvantage. If you like Tacoma more, put that as your first pick. Last round I put Seattle as my first choice and Tacoma as my second and ended up getting in to Tacoma. They did say that they'll choose you for which program they think you would be better in and mesh with more based on your application.
  7. Hey all, It took a lot of consideration, but I am declining my seat for Tacoma Class 8. This means one spot will be opening up so to everyone still waiting to hear back - keep answering those calls from unknown phone numbers and good luck!
  8. It has! It's called Samuel Merritt University PA Class of 2022.
  9. I declined my interview for 2/5 since I got accepted at my top choice, hoping this opens it up to someone else! Good luck!
  10. I got my acceptance call yesterday! Mine came in as "Private Number".
  11. For this year I believe 2/1 is the last interview date. They had 3 dates on consecutive weekends.
  12. Thank you for that update! I was also able to sign up for 1/25
  13. 3.34 cGPA 3.6 sGPA ~3600 PCE hours as an EMT Second year applicant from California! Your application and essays are what get you an interview, but the interview itself is what gets you in the program - not the application!
  14. Hey everyone! I got here early, so when anyone gets here I have blond hair and am wearing a red and gold gryffindor scarf. AlSO 3uilt is just the food service inside of 7 Stills Brewery, dont make the same mistake as me of going around the building a few times looking for it haha
  15. How would everyone feel about meeting at 3uilt if the pizza place is too small? It's near the school, and it looks like there's a lot of room inside to both sit and stand so we wouldn't need to worry about headcount. Looks like a brewery with a food menu.
