  1. hey ya'll, I am currently a first year and I was able to sign up early and get a single bedroom at Bronc Village in preparation for convenience during rotations in the Fall. Although I must say that Bronc village is competitive to get, they are currently going through applications and signing up for housing. So if you must act, act pretty soon. The rent that I was quoted was around $700 for my single a month which includes water, electricity, and Internet all into one. I currently live in the Heritage dorms which is not that bad, since I have an awesome roommate and great dormmates who are undergrads. The dorm is majority if not all undergrads, but because of the RAs things are kept under control pretty well. The Bronc Village apartments also have RAs that help keep things under control as well which is a great thing to have. There is ALWAYS an RA on call for you to phone should any issue occur at anytime. Great thing about Heritage is that the walls are made of cement so any music or noise the room next to you has is not heard. Also it takes me literally 3 minutes to walk to class from the dorms. :) Before entering PA school I was given the advice not to live with a classmate(s) because you will spend so much time with them in class and throughout your studies you kind of just want to go home and get away from it all, if you will. So far, it has worked well for me. Something about the change of scenery and talking about something other than classes at the end of the day keeps me at ease. Definitely not trying to dissuade you from living with your classmates, but I am just giving yall my experience. Helps that I am a heavy sleeper too. If ya'll have any other questions I am here to help. Enjoy your summer and see ya'll soon!

  4. congrats everyone and good luck to those who are still waiting. As my classmate said, try and enjoy the time with your family during the summer. Even those who are from the Valley and reside with their families require a full commitment both from them, in addition, to their families. It is indeed quite the ride though. I am from Houston and currently reside in the campus dorms which is not too bad, I actually enjoy it. Being able to oversleep and still make it to class on time without worrying about parking is indeed a plus. :) Throughout the year there are also other scholarship opportunities, I was fortunate enough to receive one of those which helped a bit. As jlucas stated if you have any questions feel free to private message us and we will do our best to answer your questions in a timely manner. Take care and see ya'll soon! -Joey-
  5. How exciting for all of ya'll!!! Again best of luck indeed as my classmate Josh stated and we look forward to seeing ya'll soon! :) -Joey-

  7. It was my pleasure meeting all of yall as well. I enjoyed it. :) I do believe that they will be waiting until after the interview this Saturday wraps up to evaluate all of the applicants fairly. As I stated before, PLEASE go about your daily activities. I know it is easier said than done, but the best part about the acceptance email is that it happens when you least expect it. It is a feeling you will remember for the rest of your life, where you were, what you were doing, etc. I look forward to seeing yall in August! Take care!
  8. Hi all, it was great meeting ya'll today. I hope we were able to answer most of your questions, if not some. I truly enjoyed conversing with a lot of you and I wish ya'll the best of luck! The interview portion is over with and as hard as it may seem, PLEASE go about your daily lives with family, friends, school, or even work. Checking your email like an anxious person only adds to the anxiety (trust me, I know) :P. I wish you all the best of luck no matter where you end up since ALL of you will become great PA's. Take care and I look forward to seeing yall again soon! -Joey-
  9. From what I understand the interview invites are set as of now, but you never know. Try and stay positive!
  10. Two interviews, one part taking place during the morning and the other during the afternoon. One is talking about your academics, grades, etc. and the other is about them getting to know you as a person. No essays or exams. Good luck and see you Saturday! Travel safely!
  11. It was great meeting everyone today! I am glad cameoed for a bit to meet some of you and answer some of your questions. Best of luck to all of you that I met today and I look forward to seeing the rest of ya'll on the 16th! Take care! -Joey-
  12. yes they have a March 2nd date. I will be working on the February 16th date. Good luck everyone!
  13. As someone who is currently in the program, I was not notified of an interview until 4 days before the interview date. So do not get disappointed if people are getting invites and you are not since I was one of those people. Stay positive and just have a little faith! Good luck everyone! Look forward to meeting ya'll!
