  4. As far as I know, there isn't a facebook page. You're welcome to create one. Let us know if you do.
  5. YAY Congrats pathtopac!!! I haven't seen a school page (on here) dedicated to Campbell's class of 2014. Any admin willing to create a Campbell page for us?? That'd be awesome!
  6. Good luck on your interview tomorrow! Let us know how it goes :)
  7. Is it possible to make the font of the category links a bit bigger? I still feel like I'm squinting trying to find different categories, even with my glasses (no I don't need new prescriptions :P) Thanks!
  8. check out this thread :) http://www.physicianassistantforum.com/forums/showthread.php/33106-Any-Word-from-Campbell
  9. CASPA didn't send my app out to schools until 8/19 and I too have not heard anything. Thanks for letting us know, d.charles!
  10. I agree with everyone here in that you have to raise your GPA, get >1000 on the GREs, and get more quality HCE. I briefly mentioned my high school volunteering in my PS, but didn't put down my hours under the "work/volunteer experience" on CASPA. If you don't get in this cycle, make sure you have a stellar PS and apply early for next cycle. You have 100% control over your PS so really work on that and "sell" yourself in a positive light. Don't give up! If this is what you really want to do, then give it all you got, work harder and stay positive! Good luck :)
  11. Yup, definitely send thank you note(s). It's best to send it as soon as possible after your interview.
  12. There were 2 interview sessions the day I went (which I didn't know until I got there) - a morning one (9a to ~1pm), and an afternoon one (12p to ~4). In the beginning they gave us a packet with handouts and a complete schedule of the morning or afternoon. The morning session ended and afternoon session started with a Q&A with the students (no faculty in the room) and then we were broken up into smaller groups for a tour of the building. We went back to the lecture room where the faculty joined us, introduced themselves, and talked about the didactic and clinical year of the program and a little bit about financial aid. We had a 10 minute break and then interviews began - a faculty & community PA interviewing you at the same time, which lasted about 20-30 minutes. They asked me the general/basic questions (why PA/not MD? why campbell?, etc). Not sure how other interviewees' time went, but I felt relaxed because the PAs bounced off each other's thoughts/ideas and it felt more like a conversation instead of an interview. I felt like I was laughing and smiling the whole time (I know I made them laugh a couple of times, so that helped me feel calm). After interviews, we went for a tour of part of the campus - especially the library (so wear comfortable shoes!). Like everyone's saying, be yourself, relax, and stay positive/smiling (the faculty and staff are so friendly and welcoming). Good luck!
  13. http://www.physicianassistantforum.com/forums/showthread.php/18474-New-PA-programs The link/thread above started in 2009 but some people mentioned a few programs starting last year and this year. Not sure what state you're looking into, but Elon University (NC) will have a class starting January 2013 and High Point University (NC) will have a PA program, just not sure when they're starting (it's "under development" on their website).
