  1. I would keep that confidential - unless they ask. I'm not sure when there will be an opportunity for you to mention your acceptance during the interview, but my recommendation is that if they ask you why you want to attend the Ft. Lauderdale campus, have a solid, strong answer. If it is your first choice to go there - make that known, but you don't necessarily have to bring up Jacksonville.
  2. Be prepared to answer questions about your experience/application, the profession...but the most important question is why you want to be a PA. Do some research about medical ethics topics and the school. At my interview, there were 4 prospective PA students (myself included). We each met with 3 faculty members for a 30-40 minute individual interview. Relax and be yourself, and let the interviewers get to know you. Arrive early and dress in a suit! Hope this helps! Best of luck!
  3. Hey dschelar - congrats on your acceptance! I will be in class with you next year :) The sheet that they gave you is definitely an overestimation in regards to housing and transportation. My husband (a 2nd yr D.O. student) and I moved down here last year. We had a last minute change last year and had to rent a 1 br/1 ba (right across the street from campus) and the price of rent was inflated (approx. $1200/mo + utilities). If you have a car, I recommend living a little bit further from campus. We're in a 2br/1.5 ba in Plantation (the town right next to Davie), and we're paying less than what we paid last year, and it's a significantly nicer apartment and area. Last year we had to do all our apartment hunting on our own remotely so it was a little trickier. If you have the time, try to find apartments on your own or work with a realtor (their services are usually free). If the distance from campus is an important factor for you, be prepared to pay a bit more. If you're only a few miles from campus and driving, the cost of gas won't be too bad, but you will have to be prepared for South Florida traffic (not great because there is an on-going construction project on the highway). Hope this helps! Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions.
  4. Hi dschelar - the interview is on the 1st floor in the office of admissions office. If you get lost, look for the information desk in the Terry building where there are displays of antique medical equipment and they should point you in the right direction. Hope this helps!
  5. Congrats Matkinson! Join the Facebook group - http://www.facebook.com/groups/188665587925392/191843754274242/?notif_t=group_activity. Looking forward to meeting you next June!
  6. The essay can be anything - this was my second year interviewing, and both questions were different - both were obviously related to healthcare. There's no right or wrong answer, and I think is just trying to get more perspective on your thoughts on a given topic.
  7. I interviewed on Tuesday and got my acceptance call today!
  8. Hi Everyone, I interviewed earlier this week for a seat for matriculation in 2013. I was just wondering who else has had interviews and if you've heard back anything yet? Thanks!
  9. My GPA was a little lower than that and I have been contacted stating they are considering me for an interview. Your GRE and HCE hours are definitely competitive- I believe they would reach out to you. :)
  10. I will also be reapplying for this year for my choice school. For those who re-applied, did you have significant changes in your application? Or did you primarily use the same application/personal statement/Letters of recommendation as the year prior (obviously with additional information of what was accomplished during the interim year)? If I received an interview last year, is it likely that they they will send another invitation to the interview using the same application? I appreciate any advice! Thank you in advance :)
  11. Ajensen and swortendyke, I received the same e-mail. I'm pretty sure it means the slot is open for you at St. Croix. I won't be able to accept the seat at St. Croix, as I was hoping to stay in Florida...so I guess I'm wait-listed at Miami...here's to more waiting (or reapplication for next year). Congrats to those accepted!!
  12. Has anyone else heard back who interview on 11/4? I called Michelle Spence at the admissions yesterday and all she said was that final decisions will be made by Dec. 15.
  13. Anyone have any feedback/thoughts/comments regarding the interview day/process and the school?
  14. For those who interviewed, specifically for the Miami Shores campus,has anyone received acceptances? How soon do they notify you if you are accepted, waitlisted, or denied from the program? Any tips regarding the interview process?
