I'm a current student - 2nd year (1st graduating class).  Last year, the interviews started in January.  Also, FYI, the current director is a He...not a She.  Dr. Allan Bedashi is the current program director.  Good luck to all those applying!

I interviewed at this school in Feb 2013 and was placed on the alternate list. (I applied later in the cycle) Just thought I would give you guys a little insight on the process.

 

  • We had a meet and greet with the faculty and staff. We went around the room and stated our names, undergrad degree, healthcare experience and favorite cereal.
  • We took a medical terminology exam...which was pretty easy. we had to write an essay of about 500 words I think. If I remember correctly, we had 5 topics to choose from.
  • Group interviews: They asked a few typical questions and the rest were unexpected...at least they were for me. Be prepared for ethical scenarios and role play.
  • Individual interview: They want to know about your personal situation.
  • Q&A with current students, lunch and tour.

Everyone was really nice and it was a positive experience overall. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

Amina, I interviewed at the end of January last year. I made the alternate list as well. I applied this year but I haven't heard anything about an interview yet this year. I'm about to lose hope. Have you been scheduled for an interview yet this year?

Hi Everyone! 

 

I am a current student and President of the PA Class of 2015 at West Liberty University. Tomorrow, January 15th, is the final due date for applications. Therefore, try not to worry about not having heard back for an interview yet, as all the materials are still pouring in. I do not know all the details of the interview notification process, however I was not offered an interview until mid-February last year. Try not to worry and good luck!

I did not reapply to WLU but I have 3 interviews scheduled so far...2 coming up in 2 weeks! I know how you feel but don't lose hope! If you were granted an interview last year and made the alternate list...then you are competitive enough for acceptance. It's only a matter of time....you'll see.

Hi Everyone!

I'm a current 1st year student at WVU. They received about 1000 applications for this round and will be selecting about 20 for the next class. The next class will be in the new building on campus, which you will get to see on the tour after the interview. It's looking really, really nice! Hope to meet some of you soon. If you have any questions, I'll try to help!

Has anyone else heard anything? I had an interview last year and made it to the alternate list but this year so far I've heard nothing! I thought for sure I would at least get an interview. :(

I'm hoping they are just really behind, but I'm guessing that isn't the case.

I know they are still interviewing every Wednesday pretty much. Hope that helps :)

      Hello, I am having a lot of trouble trying to narrow down schools to apply to. Where I currently live, most of the schools nearby I cannot apply to because of my stats so I am seeking out of state options. I am ending my sophomore year so I still have another year before I can begin applying (and another year to continue to boost my GPA). Any help would be appreciated!
       GPA currently: 3.426 ( My last semester has not been added in still and my science GPA would be similar)
      I am not taking Ochem 2 or biochem but I have planned/taken genetics, cell bio, microbio, ochem 1, 2 semesters of general bio and 2 semesters of general chem, med term, med ethics, anatomy, physiology, and most other pre-reqs. My main issue is that I have AP credit for statistics that my university accepts for my BS degree but I have noticed that there are some PA schools that do not accept that. I am also extremely involved  and by the time I apply, I will have a high number of service/leadership hours (President of my schools Pre-PA Association, chapter correspondent and philanthropy committee for my sorority, recruitment chair for the universities Relay for Life, and involved in other orgs). I have worked as a nursing assistant at the city's major hospital for over a year and I am seeking another job as a scribe in the ER. I have not begun shadowing yet because of COVID affecting my summer opportunities. 
      If you have experience in applying or likes/dislikes of literally any schools, I would appreciate it! I am not trying to decide on a school right now, I am simply trying to gain insight on potential schools to apply to since the ones near me are not options (Ohio/Michigan area). I have started a detailed list of schools I have researched, but I am struggling to find realistic options and those that I would be able to apply to.
      Thanks!

      Hey good people! I hope you’re all well and healthy during this COVID-19 outbreak. Just wanted to start this early and see your progress on the 2020-21 PA applications!

      Hi, I was looking around on google and couldn’t find any direct information, but I was curious if anyone has a comprehensive list of schools that have waived the GRE due to the current situation afflicting our nation? Any information would be great. Thanks!
