Hi! Sorry for the late response, I lost hope after a couple of days of not seeing any responses so I stopped checking! So glad to see someone who is attending! 


Friday would work well for me. I am not from the area though, so all I really know is that I am staying off of I-82 on Valley Mall Blvd. On a map, The road you said Starbucks is on seems nearby. I should be in town by 4 PM or so. Would sometime after that work for the both of you?


I assume you both are from the area? Any insight as to what the day will be like? I am wondering what that "team activity" will be!

I am also interviewing at Heritage on Feb 22nd and would be interested in meeting with you all on Friday. In case anything changes, My number is 530 521 8034.


So glad to hear from another fellow interviewee! =)


Are you from the area? What kind of background do you come from? I'll be sending my number via private message to both of you.

I just learned about this program. I know the academic coordinator. Nice guy. pretty strong EM PA. we worked together at another pa program about 15 years ago.

good luck to everyone applying . the rural focus on rotations at critical access hospitals sounds excellent.

Wondering if anyone has any information/tips about this program in terms of applicants they are interested in and general interview information...


My husband and I will likely be relocating to the Yakima area from Bellingham WA and after being denied by MEDEX for the past 2 cycles I am SO EXCITED there is another option in Washington state, not to mention the focus on working in rural area! very cool.


I plan on attending an info session asap but won't be able to for quite a while and am curious regarding their last few classes, what other applicants experiences have been, etc.

Some of my schools wanted a letter from a professor, and said PA or MD, not both.  Needing a PA, MD, supervisor, AND professor added up to 4 LORs, so I had to submit the one from an MD directly to Heritage since I already had 3 others in CASPA.    It wouldn't be a problem if you have an MD or PA as a supervisor and can count that for both requirements.

Has anyone finished their supplemental for Heritage? I am having difficulty getting past the pre-req section because it requires me to put something into the statistics/algebra category but it has 2 spots.... but we only need one... But then I can't continue forward without entering 2! Frustrated. Anyone have guidance?

      Hi guys, 
      I didn't see a new thread. Hope this helps you guys. Just like in previous years they are moving forward, but it may look a bit different because COVID seems to be slowing down. Here's the email I received on 5/11/2021. I submitted my application on 5/3/2021 and verified on 5/11/2021. 
      Thank you for applying to the Radford University Carilion PA program. This email is to let you know that your application is complete, has been marked as "Verified", and we have received your RU supplemental application. Your application will be put in a queue to be reviewed. You may still provide updates to your application through the CASPA website.
      Once applications are reviewed, we will make decisions on whom to interview. Our earliest interview dates will be in September. As we don't yet have exact dates selected for interviews, we will likely make offers for interviews in early July at the soonest.
      We will send out periodic updates to keep you apprised of your status. However, with the necessary changes in how we accomplish our tasks, those updates may not be as frequent as we would like them to be. We are happy to answer any questions that come up, and you are welcome to email me at rhadley1@radford.edu.
      Thank you,
      Bob Hadley

      Hey everyone, there are still tickets available for those who are interested in the Loma Linda PA program. We have changed our event from zoom to being ON CAMPUS. There will be prizes raffled off. Due to some restrictions still being in place, the tickets that are being sold will only allow one person per ticket. More info on the flyer and event bright website. Thank you so much! Hope to see you there. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/llus-3rd-annual-pre-pa-conference-tickets-145958073527

      Hi there, my name is Vanessa and I just graduated with my bachelor's in February. I am looking to pursue into a PA program but not quite sure where to start. I am currently studying for the GRE and have about 250 internship hours done at an ENT clinic with an audiologist. I'm not sure in what I am doing and need any guidance or suggestion in what to do.
