  1. Wow, this forum is really scant on information but I did find that last year's interviews started in the 2nd week of February. I am already accepted elsewhere, but would like to at least have the option to compare schools with FP, too. Hopefully they won't keep us waiting too much longer, especially as my deposit deadline is fast approaching!!
  2. Did you hear anything yet? I did not yet receive an interview invitation, not from the precise NE area and presume that you are?, but am holding out hope that I might yet be invited. Thank you for any input. lilinney
  3. Guess I won't hold my breath then, I can only claim to go camping in those states!
  4. Re: Marktheshark89 Interview for class of 2015 "Go over some of the most common questions that they ask everywhere (Why PA, Why Salus, Strengths, Weaknesses, Patient Care experience that impacted you, etc) and practice answering these questions aloud and to other family/friends in a mock interview environment. Knowing a lot about the school before the interview always helps and shows your interest. Also do a google search of common med school/pa school interview questions and think about/practice how you would answer them." Nice synopsis.
  5. Nope, waitlisted and denied. Don't sweat it though. Everyone was very open and welcoming. Just relax and enjoy your day.
  6. If you have already submitting the app then I would send an email to the admissions office to update your patient care hours.
  7. I feel ya, aching from boosting up 500 lb patients, too! Is it possible your vision is impacting your imputting time? Just asking cause that could be tricky. Are you allowed to carry a recorder at all? Don't know the size of your facility, but I know in ours there are extremely varied aide positions. I'm in a way too busy spot, but at least there aren't 20 patients on vents. We have a portion of the ER though where it is almost otherwordly for aides: they almost have to move 20 feet during their whole shift!!! I do wonder if they are also paid less...tstill, wish I had gotten in on that. Point: you will not usually have much time to do much of anything thing interesting as an aide, but different areas have differing degrees of stress. Also, if there is something you know will be happening and you want to observe, do ask the nurse and let your co-workers know where you will be so they can get you if needed. This is also good so you can access "will I really be able to do that myself?" Good luck, hope they can give you some time to do some looking around. Maybe find out if you can get onto the ER per diem list as a CNA quickly if the writing is really on the wall so you have some breathing room.
  8. OK, I see why they are closed now. Any advice on the reapplication details?

  10. Did you have any trouble using last year's login? Mine doesn't seem to work and no one is answering the phone. My challenge question doesn't make sense either. Will I have to start from scratch? Thanks.

  12. "Nothing" refers to the 18 weeks. My meaning is that in this economy, to be employed again in less than a year is still a great thing. I know engineers with Phds who have been downsized and out of work for years. So to be part of a medical profession where you can still pick yourself up and have a future in a relatively short period of time is a very good thing. No, it does not happen to MDs, but I think it is important not to just compare to the best case scenario, as that of MD is in fact rare, but to your position in society at large.
  13. Re: Contrarian's post, unemployed for 18 weeks? That is nothing in this economy! And if you think that it is then you have/are truly living a charmed life already. So zepo, with all due respect and sincere condolences for your losses, please allow me to ask how long did it take you to get back on your feet after each of these instances?
  14. Congratulations again! Would you mind sharing whether you think calling actually helped the decision? Or did they say they were ready to call you anyway?
