I have written my personal statement and mentioned that I am bilingual in English and Spanish. My native language is English, but I have taken 10 years of Spanish courses and would consider myself pretty fluent (I use my Spanish daily with patients in an inpatient setting). Has anyone who has had past interviews, and is bilingual, been given an interview question in their second language? This could just be pre-application anxiety, but I see myself potentially walking into an interview already a nervous disaster and then just totally blowing it if they asked me a question in Spanish that I didn't quite understand. Thanks in advance!
Hello, and thanks for taking the time to help me out! I was wondering if anyone knows if speaking a second language will help my application stand out. I am a junior at my university and I am getting ready to apply to PA schools for the first time. It looks like at the end of the semester, the CAPSA will have my science GPA as a 3.05 and my cumulative as a 3.33. I know that these are relatively low marks. I had one devastating semester (family issues + financial issues + mono = disaster), but I have definitely been on an upward trend ever since. I am majoring in biology and Spanish with minors in chemistry and psychology, and I have over 1000 HCE. Does anyone know if my Spanish could help me? Or should I start looking into other career paths? Thanks!
