  1. Hey everyone, thought I would share my services in case it could be of use to anyone. I created a guide that initially was intended for applicants to medical school and medical residency that helps with answering common interview questions asked and my personal answers to those questions and strategies on what I felt worked best to attack them. I had a pre PA students also find this guide quite helpful, so I wanted to share in case anyone was interested. I also offer essay editing and application editing services for your PA school essays! Thanks again and best of luck in your journey!. Here is the link to my guide: https://www.fiverr.com/dreyemd/residency-and-medical-school-interview-question-and-answer-guide
  2. Greetings future PAs, My name is Elizabeth and this is my second year applying to MEDEX with my first interview. I am very excited and nervous at the same time. I'm unsure on how the Zoom interview will go and I want to reach out to anyone else that feels the same way. Id love to get to know a few of you prior to the Zoom interview to feel a bit more comfortable. I look forward to meeting you all on 11/14, and hopefully one day in the classroom. Sincerely, Elizabeth Boudreau
  3. Hey Guys, my name is Benjamin. I work in Neurosurgery. I’m a PA-C. I received over 25 interviews when I was applying to schools. If you are getting interviews but not acceptances I would love to help. Check out www.physicianassistantschooladvice.org it lays out some good ideas to help get you that edge. cheers, Benjamin
  4. I've been genuinely curious about this, what's the latest time an applicant has received an interview invite? I feel a little crazy refreshing my emails so late at night but I don't want to miss any. Also, has anyone received an invite over the weekend before? My anxiety has me checking all day every day.
  5. I know this is annoying and probably not healthy for me to be doing, but has anyone received an interview? In the email that notified me that they received my application, it said interview invitations are sent July-October...since it's near the end of July, I was wondering if anyone has received an interview invitation? Sincerely, An anxious applicant
  6. Has anyone had any interview experience with schools asking applicants questions from subjects they took most recently to that date? Almost like a quiz or comprehension of the recent course? Wondering because I feel like I wouldn't be able to recall any academic material under that much pressure. TIA!
  7. Hey all! With COVID-19 being ever so present during this application cycle, it seems a lot of schools are holding interviews via Zoom or some other virtual format. Does anyone have any tips/advice for interviewing virtually? Pros and cons? Just trying to prepare myself for this new normal. Thanks in advance!
  8. Hi all, can someone please tell me my chances of being invited to an interview or give me suggestions as to what I should do to improve my application? I would really appreciate any input. I’m applying next cycle (2021-2022) thank you in advance! Btw I calculated it the way caspa would using ThePAPlatform gpa calculator. cGPA: 3:77 sGPA: 3.3 ~1400 hrs as a CNA ~200 hrs as a behavior therapist (it was cut short due to COVID and I have to move back home hours away) I just got offered a job at the front desk at the chiropractic office I’m getting treated at (I recently got in a car accident and couldn’t get my old job back as a CNA) but this would count as HCE! I could potentially do this from May until late Sept and work ~24hrs/week. -Medical mission trip over winter break -Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society - Multiple deans list - Chancellor’s award (scholarship) -Tutored children for a semester (~50 hours) - Vice President of my pre-pa club, and was an intern for this club before getting accepted to this position. - I also plan to rack up more hours once I move back to my university Any feedback is appreciated, thank you!
  9. Hi all, Summary: Has anyone had success reapplying to schools after a mediocre interview? Does the interview rejection hurt my reapplication more than if they'd never interviewed me? Details: I was granted an interview at a couple programs this cycle and got waitlisted at one, rejected from the other. I love the program I was rejected from and - pending a miracle on that waitlist - I was thinking of reapplying next cycle. I wouldn't say I botched the interview; it just wasn't great overall, and I definitely would take a mulligan on one of the questions. But with my lower academic measurables I think I needed to do exceptionally well to get over the top. I'm taking more classes, shadowing more, writing a new personal essay, etc. And working on my interview skills. I do plan on asking the program for specific feedback but haven't done so yet (I just have their generic, "congrats on getting an interview, but try again" rejection email for the moment). I'd be extremely grateful to any admissions professionals or faculty willing to weigh in (if any see this). Thanks in advance!
  10. Has anyone gotten a phone call about interviewing at Francis Marion University in March? I’m scheduled for March 12th, and this will be my first interview. I’m nervous! I’ve been trying to find information about the interview process, but it seems like it’s changed over the years. If anyone has any input or advice, let me know!
  11. Hi, I applied to SCUHS. I received an email from them after CASPA verified my application saying that interview notification will be sent out in January and interviews in February. Today is January 26th 2018 and I have heard nothing. Anyone heard from them?
  12. Hi all! I just received an email that I was being extended an interview that was about 3 weeks out from the current date. I responded around 4 hours after I received the email to accept the interview, but I received an email a couple hours later that they were going to have to reschedule and that “they would email me when another date opens up”. Has this happened to anyone else?? Should I be worried? Or do they send out more interview invites than spots that they have open for the day because they know that some people may decline? Thanks!
  13. I was wondering if anyone had every considered sending handwritten letters of appreciation after an interview? If so, to whom did you address and send? If not that's totally understandable, I just wasn't sure what the consensus was out in the world. Thank you so much!!
  14. Any tips for upcoming 2019/2020 interviewers and anything we should be looking out for or common/uncommon questions they asked? Interview structure and any resources that helped you be prepared and confident? Just any advice overall on how to have a successful interview for acceptance into MCPHS Boston!!! Thank you!!!
  15. How long does it usually take after receiving your interview invitation for confirmation of date and time/getting supplemental application?
  16. Hey guys, I'm currently considering applying next year and was wondering if anyone could share their stats for getting into nova or any other school in florida, especially how many pce hours, since they don't seem to require it but I'm not sure how many most applicants have.
  17. Hello everyone, I have an interview this week at Campbell University (NC), and this will be my first PA interview. What advice would give for PA interviews? Should we be familiar in some ethical issues in the medical field? Commonly asked questions? Thanks! MH
  18. Hi Everyone! I just wanted to ask here if there were any current students or anyone who had previously interviewed at Slippery Rock and could talk about their interview experience. Was there a group interview and were there MMI? Thanks so much!
  19. Has anyone received/had an interview at MSJ?
  20. Hey guys! Interviews started today! How was everyone's interview? Good luck to everyone who is interviewing this week!
  21. 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!

  23. Hey everyone, I wanted to get some advice and input from people that have applied/been accepted/are already in PA school. So over the course of the past two months I was invited to interview at three different schools and recently have found out that I was rejected at all of them. I have about 1,500 hours as a CNA at an assisted living facility, 1,500 hours doing direct care with mentally/physically disabled adults, and just started working at a hospital as a nurses aide about two months ago. My GPAs are: -Last 60 credits: 4.0 -cGPA: 3.91 -science GPA: 3.97 -I also have a 4.0 in every pre-requisite that each school required. My GRE scores for both sections were a little bit above average, and I got a 4.5 on the writing portion. Not going to lie, I thought I would get into at least two of the three with my GPA, or even waitlisted. I honestly didn't expect to be straight up rejected from all three. I do feel that each of the interviews went fairly well and I answered all of my questions thoroughly. I even had some conversation with the interviewers and felt very comfortable after all of them were complete. I honestly do not know what went wrong and what I can improve at this point. If anyone can give me any advice I would greatly appreciate it.
  24. I believe invites for Anchorage interviews were around this time last year (based on last years ANC forum feed). Starting this topic for news, collaboration and support. Good luck to all.
  25. Hi guys, just wanted to start a thread for Hardin-Simmons' 2016-2017 application cycle. This is a developing program with the first class to matriculate next year! I read that interviews will be in November. Any more info about this school/program would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
