I heard that they're doing interviews through February, but am wondering if those interviewees have already been contacted to schedule the interview?


I submitted my CASPA application in mid-September and my last contact with ODU was just after the end of Fall semester when I sent them an email updating two "in-progress" classes to "completed".  (I got a reply saying that they don't accept updates during the application process.)  I am waitlisted at Marietta and things are up in the air with Kettering, where I interviewed just before Thanksgiving.  I also applied to Mt. Union, but was rejected there.  

The biggest reason I'm antsy is that ODU was the only program that suggested I retake biochem (it's been about 10 years since I took it the first time), so I was hoping I would hear back from them before too long.  It's not that I don't enjoy the biochem class I'm taking currently, but if I end up accepted at another program it would be nice to have a semester off before beginning PA school "fresh". Ah, dilemmas!

Yes! I'm still waiting to hear back too. I was hoping to find some info in the Ohio schools section but there isn't a forum for ODU. Being a newer program, I haven't been able to find anything anywhere else on the internet about when ODU schedules interviews or how long the interview process takes for them. I'm getting antsy as well! Anyone hear anything?

I actually just heard from them about scheduling an interview last week! Mine is scheduled for February 12th. 


Has anyone heard anything about how their interviews go?  This will be my first interview so I'm interested to hear what people have to say!

Congrats!  I've heard that their interviews are relatively relaxed, nothing wacky, and they really just want to get to know you and hear why you want to be a PA.  Good luck!

      I thought I would start this thread since CWRU is one of my top choices! I have not submitted my application yet, but I plan to do so middle July. Good luck everyone!

      Anybody know what the average salary/hourly wage is for urgent care work in Ohio? Is the data on Zip Recruiter reliable?

      Hi There! 
      Today I took my first GRE. 149 (42%) Verbal and 156 (62%) Quant. I have a solid GPA in both overall and science, both 3.6. I work as a medical scribe as well as a nurse assistant. I will have about 1000+ hours of experience by the time I apply for the 2018-2019 application cycle. Additionally, I have 50+ hours of PA shadowing. I have confirmed recommendation letters from a PA, MD and 2 upper level science course professors. I am currently in my gap year finishing up pre-reqs and trying to get as much patient care experience. I felt I was on a good track until todays GRE scores. I feel confident that I am in the 50th percentile at least on the writing portion (still pending score... also knock on wood). 
      Need some opinions on whether my current GRE scores are a make or break for me. Combined 305, but don't have the often recommended 50th percentile in BOTH categories. 
      Also, if you suggest retaking it... how do I improve on verbal? I have been studying for the GRE for about 3 weeks and really struggle with verbal, additionally I feel as if I run out of time.
