  1. Plan on begin there all day, literally. I know some have been done at 3:30 I was there till 4/5.
  2. Just to answer a few questions… South is very up to date. By not having an electronic secondary app it is one way of eliminating getting submissions from a lot of people who aren't truly interested in the school but just putting another app on CASPA, at least thats my thoughts. The school does not have a cadaver lab but does bring in hearts, eyes, ect for a few wet labs. As far as interviews go, there are 6 more interview sessions that I am away of including the one this Friday January 31st. Typically they send interview invites out two weeks in advance and although they have not released all the dates I am guessing they last interview will be in May (that's what it was last year). The earliest they will end will be April. If you haven't heard anything by the end of May I would say it is safe to say you will have to reapply (or you can wait till they contact everyone in July). If you are wait listed, you could be accepted anytime from your interview date to the right before school starts. We had a girl taken off the wait list 4 days before school started this past year. If you are wait listed, do what they recommend and you will most likely be accepted if you have to reapply. Also, if yoga re wait listed and are working on stuff over the summer send them updates as they will review all the files and what you have done to improve if a seat opens up. As far as where to stay, any hotel on Parkside Dr. will be nice and in close proximity. The airport is about 20minutes away so you will definitely need to rent a car. If looking at apartments while here, many students live in the Lovell or Walden Legacy apartments and there are a few in Forest Ridge. I will be there this Friday. Hope to see some of you there!
  3. Oh also, I submitted my application late October (maybe even first week of November, I don't remember) and I was offered an interview in February for the March date.
  4. Hey everyone! I am a first year student here at South! The first interview session is this upcoming Friday. There is a medical terminology quiz that you will have to take but do not stress about it they do not base there acceptance offers on it and no matter whether you pass or fail everyone has to retake it the first week of school anyways. So really don't stress about it. The format of the interview is: Sit through a few speeches by faculty, get separated into group in which will consist of 4 students and 3 faculty members, lunch, med term quiz, and then individual interviews. The individual interviews they may just tell you that you are accepted or ask you a few more questions. If you are accept they will notify you during the individual interview and give you a packet with a lot of information. I will be there this Friday to mingle with you all and aster any questions you have. Best of luck and I look forward to meeting some of you!
  5. My "Under Review" status changed today to "Not accepted for an award" Best of luck to everyone else still waiting to here.
  6. I read in the application packet that there were only 190 scholarships this year as compared to 220 in the past. I am assuming due to budget cuts. I called yesterday since I was having issues logging into my portal (now fixed) and they said they have started reviewing files and that we will be notified anytime between now and September but most likely September. She told me to constantly check my email that they will send out letters (I am guessing to the qualified applicants). I talked to a student who received the award last year and he said he was notified he was a in the finalist in august and received the award in november (that may be when he actually received the money not when he was notified he won). Hope that helps. I am anxiously awaiting as well!
  7. Yes a facebook page has been created but it is set to private and they have to add you. I was accepted at the March 8th interview and they just invited all of us 3-4 weeks ago so it may take awhile. Hopefully with all of the interviews being completed they will be able to add the next group a little bit quicker! And congrats on being accepted! I look forward to meeting you this fall!
  8. I too would be interested in knowing this. I have heard from a lot of different people that Rosetta stone is great for general spanish but it is so expensive! Where I currently work we have a patient who is a medical student in her third year of residency and she is going to Peru for a intensive 3 week medical spanish immersion course. She does have a prior spanish background though.
  9. Thanks for all the advice I really appreciate. Just to clarify, are you saying print notes and write them during class then type them up later and add that info to powerpoint. I definitely surfed the web in class in undergrad out of boredom but definitely want to avoid that in PA school and do agree that it is rude and unprofessional. I do tend to write slow and can usually take a lot more notes if I type though so I do like to bring my comp to class for that. I do think trying to listen more in lecture than typing may be helpful though. I will definitely try this strategy!
  10. I interviewed with faculty and staff and did not get the opportunity to interview with the "top officials" and was accepted at my interview. Do not let that deter you or loose hope. We had roughly 40 individuals at my interview and 4 in each group. This is the only way they can interview a lot of students at once without having us there for 2 days. And as far as being wait-listed, they do pull a lot of students from the list so do not be discouraged. There is still hope for you.
  11. @April, Pencil skirt or pant suit will be fine. There were a variety of both at my interview. I highly recommend reading "How to Ace the Physician Assistant Interview." I went to one interview and was rejected (also had laryngitis and could hardly get a squeak out to answer their questions haha) but after I bought this book I was accepted at all the other interviews I went to. I didn't just read the book though. I typed out my answer to every single interview question in the book and read over them constantly. I did not memorize my answers but just practiced. It was extremely helpful for the interviews because I already had a story or situation in mind for every single question I got and I did not have to wait to come up with one. I was also able to speak my answer more eloquently and have a better flow since I had already practiced and repeated the scenarios so many times in my already. Best of luck!!

  14. I just got accepted into PA school so I do not know from a professional standpoint but I have lived in Colorado for almost 26yrs. Unfortunately I see many specialist which are all PA's and my PCP is also a PA. This is both in my hometown which is a very rurally community and a much larger community near CSU. PA's are everywhere here.
