  1. Congrats to all accepted. I am currently a first year PA student at Concordia. We will be creating a facebook group for you all in about a month. If anyone has any questions in the meantime about housing or anything else, feel free to PM me.
  2. AT Still sent out secondaries mid June last year. Interviews around mid July.
  3. I received my interview invite in late july last year. Submitted my Caspa late May and turned in my supplemental around early-mid june. You guys have a little while yet.
  4. From UW Madison Website- "Applicants should have between 500-1000 hours of patient care to be competitive in the application process."From the Rosalind Franklin Website- "Coming into the program, successful applicants typically have at least 1,200 hours of direct patient contact and PA shadowing experience." There may be no minimum requirement listed, but you should consider those "competitive" numbers as absolute minimums when filling out your application.
  5. This is completely dependent on the scribe company. I would have been fired on the spot if I were to enter a room unaccompanied and deliver medical information to a patient and their family. This may not be the case for all scribe companies. The experience is Doctor dependent. Some docs love teaching their scribes and will quiz them about lab tests and differentials while others ignore them completely. I was offered interviews at 11 of the 12 schools I applied. The scribe experience did not hinder my ability to receive interview invites.
  6. 3-4 Schools asked me how many schools I applied to. One actually made me write them down! I felt it was an unnecessary question, but I was asked it so be prepared just in case is the point im trying to say.
  7. Keep in mind that some schools will ask you how many schools you applied to. If you respond with 20+ it may seem like you just applied randomly. If they ask you why so many schools, you better have a way better reason than "I want to increase my odds of getting in" because then it seems like you really don't care about the specific schools. Do your research before applying! Look at the mission statements and ask yourself: "If I am asked a question about why I want to go to this school can I come up with a logical explanation and explain a good fit?" Why do you want to go to Duke? The reasoning should be better than "well it's ranked #1." That can be part of the reason but try and come up with a more personal answer for all of your schools. I made the mistake of applying to too many schools and not having good enough reasons for some of them. It was my first time applying and I was excited. I wasted both money and my summer. Proceed with caution when picking your schools!
  8. I did. I assume there is some sort of order and they're not just picking randomly. However, I am curious to know how many people are on this waitlist.
  9. They didn't have enough ob/gyn clinical rotations for males. Now they do. Just an FYI.
  10. I was in the first mailing too! I haven't heard anything either
  11. I paid the supplemental fee also. There are no supplemental questions for their application.
