  1. It's a two-day interview process, but the first day is just an info session and then a dinner with some current students. On day 2, you have two one-on-one interviews with faculty, and a group interview with 3 other interviewees. My group interview was conducted by the program director and someone from the South Uni school system.
  2. No writing sample! There is an online application that you have to do on day 2, but that is just to input your information into their school system so that you can be an official student if you are accepted.
  3. I did not do the CASPer test, it isn't required. They were testing it out last cycle so some applicants did it then.
  4. I prepared by reading "How to Ace the Physician Assistant Interview" book and I did a mock interview with my office manager. The book really helps with getting an idea of what kind of questions to expect at interviews. I was super nervous too, but the environment is very relaxing the first day which helps a lot.
  5. Got the call Friday that I got accepted as well!
  6. GWU gre scores get sent directly to their school, so you can see if they received it through the online supplemental application account
  7. For me, it carried over the explanation of duties/responsibilities from my caspa. BUT on some other things, the explanation/details were lost...
  8. When was your caspa verified?
  9. Thanks! GRE total- 319, Verbal- 161, Quant- 158, Analytical- 4.0 I'm not too sure how hard they are with the GRE. I've heard that you just have to get around a 300 for most schools.
  10. Received an interview invitation for June 11 & 12!
  11. For any classes that require a lab component, try to do that in person! A lot of PA schools require that they are in person. Also for the ochem requirement, some schools will take biochem instead or won't even require either of them (just bonus courses). Definitely do your research in the prereqs for the specific schools you are interested in! The school that you take your prereqs at will have a different order that they require for the classes- but ochem will definitely be last. Bio will be needed before micro and A&P. When you get an advisor, you'll be able to get a better sense of what the order will be. I did post-bac classes both online and in person through Troy Uni (I live in Alabama). So I was able to work as much as possible while taking the online classes, then I dropped down to part-time to do the in-person classes. Some schools offer an accelerated A&P 1 and 2 where you can complete both in one semester- might be something you want to consider to maximize your time.
  12. Has anyone received an email from South that their application is complete? I received the email that they received my caspa app.
  13. My app was just verified by CASPA, good luck guys!
