  1. You are in a good position, so just spend some time thinking pros and cons of each program. Going where you want to practice will definitely open up doors for you during clinical rotations, and it will be helpful for networking as well. But don't discount the cost and quality of your education. It's a tough decision to make, but you'll find the answer. Talk to whoever will listen. Hopefully you'll figure it out soon enough that you don't have to lose deposit money, too.
  2. I know, isn't it crazy? I've done so many more stressful things, but this little interview made me a shaky ball of stammering nervousness. Needless to say, I didn't get the phone call--but I'm hoping there's maybe a wait list letter coming my way that I can work with. Even with lots of practicing, I just wasn't able to adequately express myself. Funny thing is, I interviewed a few days later at a school that is "ranked" higher, but I was so much less stressed since it wasn't my "top" choice (I mean, of course I was still nervous, but not nearly as bad as the first time) and I got accepted within 8 days. And the more I think about it, the more I think it's probably a better program for me anyway. blblue and balsam88--Thanks for sharing--glad to know I'm not the only one in this boat. I hope you guys hear good news soon. Even if we don't get our top choice, we'll still be PAs. Good luck!
  3. Just got my acceptance letter through the online portal! So excited!
  4. I recently had an interview at my top choice program that went...um...not as well as I had hoped. I feel like they didn't get a good feel for me or my personality and drive, and I was just so nervous. I almost want to call or write to tell them why they should still consider me for the program, but I know that would seem desperate and strange, so I'm just going to send a thank-you note to the director and hope for the best. anybody have tips on coming back from a bad interview? I've read the books and practiced--I just never had that "nervous" feeling until I was in the actual interview seat. Oy.

  6. It's such a long wait! I wish they did rolling admissions. I went to undergrad at Wisconsin and LOVED it. Madison is a great town, and a place I wouldn't mind coming back to for two crazy/intense years of PA school. Really hoping I get an interview, but who knows, it's so competitive....
  7. Congrats on all the interviews and acceptances! I applied pretty late in the game (complete in early/mid October). Northwestern has a pretty late final deadline, but does anybody have info on applying late and getting an interview?
  8. Looking forward to meeting some of you on Friday evening! I'll be coming solo and taking the "casual dress" message literally--hope I won't be the only one not wearing a dress/suit.
  9. For what it's worth, I work with a PA in orthopedics who went to the MEDEX program, and he's an incredible PA. Good luck in your decision!
