Hi everyone! Would those of you who have completed MMI style interviews please share your experience? Any advice or preparation recommendations would be greatly appreciated! I have been watching YouTube videos of scenarios and have, of course, printed off a long list of MMI examples and have been practicing with those! Thank you!!
Hi all- I have a question about listing one of my shadowing experiences on CASPA. I shadowed the same PA in two different specialties, and I don't know if I should list that separately or together on the application. I started shadowing this particular PA when she was working in a small, private orthopedics office, and have since followed her to a new job in otolaryngology/head+neck surgery at a large hospital. I have a significant amount of hours in both locations with this PA. I feel like I should list them separately because the amount of hours, locations, and types of patients we saw were different. However, I don't want to "double-dip" on my application by stating information twice. I spoke with CASPA customer service and the rep said it is ultimately up to me as to how I list these hours. Just wondering if anyone has gone through this same situation, or had any insight! (I do have other shadowing as well with other providers, but this one is where I'm struggling!) Thanks for the help!!
vagabondita posted a topic in Pre-PA General DiscussionHello, newbie here seeking some advice. I did a search on this forum and didn't find anything that related to my concern, so forgive me if this has already been posted. I live in NYC and I am currently taking post-bacc science classes at local city colleges to boost my low undergrad GPA from 3 years ago. (BA Psychology GPA 2.8) Often, the classes that I wish to take at one college such as Chem I is already filled with no available seats since as a non-degree student I get to register later than everyone else. However, I was able to find other available courses at other colleges. For my current Spring semester, I will be taking Nutrition at college A, Bio + A&P at college B and Chem I at college C. If it is possible, I would definitely take all my classes at one single college. But the reality is that when a certain class is filled, I have to look elsewhere to get it. In addition to taking courses at different colleges, I have also transferred schools 3 times in my undergrad years ago. Based on my understanding, CASPA take into account all your classes to calculate GPA and doesn't differentiate what schools they are from. But PA programs can still see my transcripts from multiple colleges when they review my app? I've heard that admission sometimes see it as a flaw in the applicant if he/she went to too many colleges as an indication of his/her inability to commit to just one college or go elsewhere when the school is too hard. Any insight or advice is appreciated, thank you.
Hi, I wasn't able to find a thread about this so here it goes. I just applied for the 2014 cycle and some of the school I have applied to have rolling admissions. So some will make their decisions now and others later this year. If I were to get an offer for acceptance nowadays, would it be okay to accept it until I hear back from other schools? I know you have to make a decision within two weeks and I'm okay putting down a deposit. It's just that I know a lot of the school I applied to won't even make interview decisions until later this year and I would like to give myself options. Is it okay to accept and then later decline? And is it okay to accept to multiple schools to give yourself some decision making time? Thanks, Sarah
