Hi all, It is my first cycle applying and I am wondering if anyone has any guidance or suggestions towards interview preparation. I know that there are resources for mock interviews but they are usually $100+ just for one. Does anyone have any other ideas especially just to get started or how to become confident and ready on interview day? i am very personable and don't typically struggle during interview situations but with these I know I will be nervous and I don't want that to be the only impression left on the adcoms. Or when is a good time to begin the preparation and everything we should know about the schools before interviews? Any feedback on things that helped you or you plan to do is much appreciated! Thanks and good luck to everyone!
Hello~ I just graduated from undergrad and am currently preparing for PA and my patient care hours. I have some time before I start my medical assistant program and was debating if I should take my GRE’s while I remember a lot of the material that will be one the test. However, I’m a little hesitant because I know GRE scores are valid for 5 years and so thinking about the timeline I have, it seems a little tight. Medical assistant program: ~1 year Working for patient care hours: ~1.5-2 years Applying to PA schools: ~1-3 years (because I know that getting in on the first try is very difficult) It’d be great for anyone who’s a bit farther along on the PA track to give me some advice on when it may be good to take the GRE’s. Thank you~~
Greetings, I am preparing for a few interviews I have in the near future and wanted to pose this question. All the literature I have found says that I should prepare for my interview, that is, read possible questions, practice my answers, know what I am going to say before I get into the room, etc etc.... and, this just struck me as...odd? So my question is this: Does prepare for your interview mean: Read all the practice questions I can, have an answer in mind, rehearse my answers, practice what I think I should say before hand etc. etc. Or does prepare for your interview mean: Look kid... you've had 4 hard years of school which you graduated with outstanding grades, you've worked hard in multiple settings and collected over 1000s of experience hours, you organically and honestly want to become a PA, all of these things have led me to this moment... so rely on my education, rely on my experience, and rely on my honest and organic drive to become an PA and simply answer the questions as truthfully and organically as possible... even if the answers are not the "right" answer? Or do the interviewers just want to hear the "right" answer, practiced, rehearsed, and articulated well? idk just to me the real world is never rehearsed or practiced... its live, in the moment, and crazy... and you have to just trust yourself and rely on your eduction to do the right thing in that exact moment... why should a PA interview be any different? Thanks in advance
2nd-year student here only 7-months til graduation. I am starting to study for the PANCE and would like to pass the first time. Any recommendations for study materials? What do you all think about using the SMARTY PANCE (http://smartypance.com/) website for preparation? Are there any recommended online courses or material you would recommend? Thank you in advance for any advice. Respectfully, A very worried PAS-2
