Interview for fall 2014 Bayshore campus

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Has anyone heard from Touro Bayshore campus about an interview for the fall 2014? I sent out my supplemental in the beginning of June and they sent me an email saying they would be in touch within 2 weeks.

I sent my supplemental early in June as well and got the same email but haven't heard from them. I'm guessing they won't be offering interviews for a while since the deadline for Bayshore isn't until March and they have the other campuses to worry about.

I interviewed for Winthrop mid-November and was accepted about 2 weeks after my interview. They offered for me to defer my acceptance from Winthrop (program begins in January) and start with the Bayshore class in September. I decided to defer until September instead of rushing to find a house and buy books within a month's time. The interview was great. I felt at ease with the interviewers. Interview lasted about a half an hour. After the interview you complete a short writing sample and show yourself out of the building. Good luck to everyone, see you in September!

To those who applied for Touro recently; I am interested in pursuing this program and would like some advice.

 

How are your GPA stats?

How is your HCE?

Also, any suggestion to who I may contact about their admission student profile?

Sure, I have 3.5 overall GPA. 3.7 science GPA. About 1000 hours working as an EMT. About 100 hours shadowing a PA. What helped me out the most though, I think was I practiced every single question I thought they could ask me over and over leading up to the interview.

No I had it with bayshore I posted on wrong thread haha!

 

The interview wasn't bad. When you go there you wait and they take you upstairs. I was interviewed by two people. One was I think the admission coordinator and she was also a P.A, another girl was a graduate from Touro who was working as a P.A and I think she was also working at admissions I'm not sure. They had a 3 page packet and whenever I answered a question they would take notes  on their packet. They asked me many basic questions as well as few scenarios. (They know your Caspa application and even your essay so make sure you remember what you wrote in your application). They also asked me couple of questions from my transcript.

 

Anyways good luck to people who still have interviews coming up! If you have any additional questions you can always ask me :)

Sounds like we may have been interviewed by the same people. I was so nervous up until the interview started. The way they conducted the interview though really put me at ease. For anyone with an upcoming interview, I would definitely make sure you have a very good answer to why you want to be a PA and can recite it in your sleep. There is also a YouTube video by a former touro PA student and he goes over many interview questions. I was the pretty much asked every one he went over

Did you go for the interview yesterday (2/10/2014)??

 

I agree with PbagJones make sure you know WHY you want to be a P.A. As I was answering, they recited something from my essay and I was shocked because they know everything. You can clearly tell they have read your application thoroughly.

 

I felt embarrassed when I said something and one of the interviewers was like "That's necessarily not true" then she talked about her story. I thought that was the end but I was confident in my answers so don't feel nervous just respond calmly and confidently. They can tell everything from the way you speak and your facial expressions.

 

@Soniax26..hmm I'm not sure why they said that to you. I received an e-mail approximately 2 weeks ago for the interview yesterday. Who did you speak to?
