  1. I was also hoping to find some insight here on the study tips for EORE's regarding hours and study schedule. Any tips?
  2. Accepted to WSU class of 2016! Woohoo!

      Congratulations, do u mind if you share how was the interview, and what questions were asked?

      Sorry for the delay in response. The interview went well, I had a professor and a clinical PA interview me. Their questions seemed right out of the book, "The Ultimate guide to getting into PA school" by Andrew Rodican. I was asked the normal stuff: why this school, new legal changes, why aren't you wanting to advance in your current profession, asked to write an essay on my most recently read book. They had one question for me that tripped me up only because I had forgotten abou...

      They asked a lot about my research done on the PA profession and about a patient I mentioned in my supplemental application

  3. Immediate family of 2 Marine srgt.'s, and hopeful to join the Navy as a PA or the NG as a PA upon graduation.
  4. Also read "Sabers Edge" and "Paradise General", both are about combat medics in wartime. Reflecting on what you can expect before deployment and when deployed. The sunny side and the gloomy side. You should see the pros and cons before you decide what is right for you and your family. But...Please join because you want to contribute medicine to this country, you will get allot of experience and be a better PA and soldier if you are there for the right reasons. I am considering this same route, I have a family also. I have a brother-in-law and sister-in-law in the marines; deployed often for a year at a time. I think it is a scary idea to be deployed, I would think even the enlisted would be anxious about deployment...but...you join knowing that you will be sent to fight for this country, either on the front lines or in a hospital.
  5. should I tell them I did do the GRE again with flipped results? Bring a copy of the results to the interview if I am granted one?
  6. I did do the GRE last week, but with results that just flipped. I was low in math but high in verbal, it switched to be high in math and low in verbal, with a point lower. My writing went up considerably. I cannot submit this score unfortunately. So it may look like I did not fulfill their recommendations, but I did do 2 of the 3 recommendations.
  7. I have heard a skirt or dress is preferred, as it accents feminine professionalism. I would think it would be personal preference and comfort that matters. Maybe a comfortable compromise is in order.
  8. I did this...I wore a pink silk collared blouse, with a black pencil skirt and low heels (about an inch or less). I also wore a black v-neck sweater over my blouse with pearl necklace and matching earrings.
  9. I have asked about submitting more LORs, they said NO. My PS was not program specific, just stated my reasoning for wanting to be a PA, which hasn't changed, so I would change very little about my PS, I did want to put what I have been up to the last year, and explain one grade, which I have retaken and improved. This program allows contingent applications, they said to be more competitive, most have completed more classes. Your right though, I was fully expected to be tossed in the NO pile, because I had only one class finished. I just wanted a critique to improve upon for the next cycle. So you can imagine my surprise when i was offered an interview. I have noticed however, that this schools REALLY like experience, community service, and good LORs, and I think places more importance on these aspects, grades being the last consideration...I could be wrong. Only one of the points they suggested to improve...the GRE score...is the only point I did not do. Do you think this will result in my ultimate rejection?
  10. I know this is 6 months after you opened this thread, I hope you are still checking in with it. My question is regarding reapplication: I have reapplied to my fist choice program though CASPA, but have not submitted my supplementary yet. However, a problem has arisen, I submitted my application to another school this cycle with the same information I submitted to my first choice school, so now it is locked! I cannot change my personal statement, LOR's or update my volunteering experience. I'm worried my chances have been dropped considerably. What are your thoughts? Background: I had an interview last year with my first choice school, I had a lot of fun! I really want this PA program! I was declined because I didn't have a competitive application. I asked for a application analysis, they said all was satisfactory but to be more competitive I should increase my GRE score (which is 293 but min is 291), finishing more pre-reqs (only had one finished but now are all completed), increasing my GPA (which was 3.4 cumulative, but pre-req was 3.0 being based on one pre-req, which is now 3.8) Hope this helps!

Background: I had an interview last year with my first choice school, I had a lot of fun! I really want this PA program! I was declined because I didn't have a competitive application in regards to prereq completion.

The interview team responded favorably to your interview." My question is this: The program states they found all the subjects provided by CASPA in favor, I cannot change them for update. Is this going to hurt my chances? Hope this helps!
  12. Did you get in? Any Advice....???? I'm applying for a second attempt to this school (UDM). I have interviewed with them and was so much fun! I had only one pre-req finished at the time of application. This is my school of choice. I have applied to others, but REALLY want this one!!! Any advice? They said that all was satisfactory to include: LOR's, PA essay, experience, and interview. They advised finishing my pre-reqs, increase my GPA, and increase my GRE score. I have done the first two, but the GRE retake was 2 points l less than the previous, so I'm using the old 293 score. STATS: CUM. GPA: 3.4 Pre-req GPA: 3.8 GRE revised version: 293 (min is 291 for UDM) HCE: Dental Hygienist for 12 years and Nurse Aide at Botsford Hospital for 1 1/2 years Volunteering: Malta Medical Clinic downtown Detroit (pt base is mostly homeless) & Ferncare Free Clinic in Ferndale (pt base is mostly working poor)
