  1. Invited to interview in January yesterday. I'll be declining.
  2. My interview was going stellar, but then they threw a curveball and I stumbled. I thought I may have blown my chances but I still got in! Have faith in yourself!
  3. Accepted!! I'm going to have to think about this one, but the interviewers were so nice and I love NYC!!
  4. KInterviewed 10/12 and accepted today 10/16! Unfortunately I will be declining my seat in order to attend Yale-- it's a bittersweet decision and I wish everybody pursuing San Juan Bautista the best of luck! You have so much opportunity to improve linguistically and expand healthcare access in PR! PAs are not well established there and it's up to you guys to pave the way.
  5. Just an update-- I'll be relinquishing my interview spot at the end of the month to pursue another program that I was accepted at (Yale!). Good luck on your interviews everyone!
  6. I just wanted to update that I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement. I can't speak to the specifics of the interview day and program, but the faculty are incredibly nice and definitely have great visions for the future of healthcare delivery to the underserved. This has been my most relaxing and fun interview by far, and you get a lot of great insight into the other interviewees!
  7. They didn't mention. There's about a 1/4 chance of being accepted and a 1/4 chance of being waitlisted after interview though.
  8. Hi Armita, I should clarify that I received the invite on 10/5-- they will schedule me for either 10/12, 10/13, or 10/14. I'll let you know!
  9. Yes! It's traditional. It may have 2 faculty or 1 faculty member and 1 alumni. They release the names of those interviewing you a few days prior so you can research them! Mine had a lot in common with me so we were able to have a really great discussion and I honestly couldn't stop smiling even though I was dying leading up to the interview lol. I suspect they tailor the interviewers to the applicant's backgrounds. It's also very relaxed-- I felt like they were trying to advocate for me and delve deeper into my application. Hope it helps!
  10. Historically it looks like they extend invites 2+ weeks after. I really hope you're right-- I'm dying to hear back!
  11. I hate to be an annoyance, but could I get in on this as well?
  12. I forgot to post, but I received an invite on Friday, 9/11 and scheduled it for 10/12! I'm really excited for this one! Can anybody offer some vague insights on the interview process and timeline to decision? TIA!
  13. I got an interview invite yesterday (9/30) for 10/29, 10/30 or 10/31. My application was complete 6/29. I may give up my spot due to my waiting to hear back from other programs-- still debating. Good luck everybody!
  14. It's a 30 minute 2:1 interview with 2 faculty or 1 faculty member and 1 alumni. I haven't had mine yet but I heard it's pretty relaxed! There's also other stuff added, including a virtual tour, an info session, financial aid session, etc so it stretches out to 4ish hours
  15. Still waiting for news from the August 12th AM session, although they asked me to submit a professional headshot a few days ago. It's been about 6 weeks (they specified a turnaround time of 6-8 weeks).
  16. They said something like 30 students for the first cohort.
  17. Same! I really fell in love with the program and faculty from the interview experience!
  18. I honestly wasn't super impressed with the information session today, but I did learn some things that you guys might find interesting: Apparently they recieved 3000+ applications this year, and the faculty are going about it super slowly because they also have teaching obligations They plan on interviewing well into March Interviews HAVE already started They notify you if you are rejected-- no news is good news They accept 75 students per year with a "healthy" wait list.
