Not my intent either - but the excitement / emotions can sometimes out weigh the facts. I will desist. Still interested in what you think after your visit and what you decide

Thus far everyone that I know has passed from 2014 (I don't think I can post numbers so I won't, but ask at your interviews!!!). Again, interviews start next week, and faculty and staff will be more than willing to answer and verify any information I have posted. The 42% was the programs first first year. When this year's numbers come out, this topic will be irrelevant. As I said, there is absolutely no doubt all of us will be PAs, all of the future students will be PAs, and that every subsequent class passes at national standards.

As for people applying, ignore this guy. Like I posted before, he seems bitter and probably is not a student; this thread is not the place to post your rants about what you think about a program you aren't enrolled in or have applied to. People are posting here excited to see their accomplishments and hard work pay off through the most important interview of their life. Show a little professionalism bro. If your agenda is making people second guess their decision to apply, post it somewhere else.

I had intended to drop the thread - but can't resist.

 

Since we live in an evidence based world CJ1800s contention: "Thus far everyone that I know has passed from 2014" means nothing.

 

Since we live in an evidenced based world CJ1800s contention:  "When this year's numbers come out, this topic will be irrelevant. As I said, there is absolutely no doubt all of us will be PAs, all of the future students will be PAs, and that every subsequent class passes at national standards" is based on whose crystal ball? What possible evidence? None; and therefore means nothing.

 

If CJ1800 thinks: "If your agenda is making people second guess their decision to apply, post it somewhere else" then CJ1800s contention is exactly right - once in this post - and ~1200 people so far are interested.

Unlike CJ1800, the information posted is accurate, supported by the evidence, and rather than tell you what to think, have suggested to go to interview, ask the questions, and then decide; as any critical thinking adult might.

Here you go WilsonCT; my validated information that "meant nothing"

 

"The first-time pass rate for the recently graduated Class of 2014 is 100 percent. This is 20 of 34 reported and as new scores are reported this site will be updated."

http://www.bridgeport.edu/academics/graduate/physician-assistant-ms/pance/

 

And whose crystal ball is this coming from? It's coming from the feeling of confidence from 40 other students in my class.

 

To everyone else - feel free to message bjennings (our president) or myself - interviews start this week, so good luck everyone!

I'm sure they are still extending interview offers, last year I got a call in September I believe.

 

My interview was yesterday - I was accepted for the Class of 2017! So excited!

 

Good luck to all interviewing!

Tips for the interview are legit just he yourself. I know you all have definitely read this 1000+ times but this program interview seriously just wants to get to know you. They tell you the fact you got an interview means that you're ahead of the game and a potential candidate for a position. By the interview process they already know you academic performance and why you want to be a PA but the interview is where they get to know you. I only had maybe one or two questions about being a PA or why I wanted to, the rest were questions to get to know me and see I I am a fit for the class they are trying to fill. I can't stress enough how I stressful it was. Everyone is nervous at first but they engage you in a conversation about you. Who knows you better than yourself? Just be yourself and give honest answers. It was so relaxed I wasn't stressed out at any moment. Good luck to everyone !!

Relax, be yourself. Easier said than done, I know. But, they set up a really nice day for them to get to know you and vice versa. Don't overthink or over prepare.

Hi there, the class is not full, they do a rolling admissions process. They interview until the beginning of October or so, and finalize the class late in the fall. Good luck!

Interviewed on July 30th and had a great time. Really relaxed style of interview with some really friendly people who just wanted to hear what you had to say. Hoping to hear back soon...

      Earlier this year I attended a PA school virtual fair in which multiple people said you want to be as descriptive as possible in your "experiences" tab on CASPA. I have worked several CNA jobs with different companies, but the job and work I did was basically the same. I'm looking for some advice... should I be redundant so I don't leave anything out in the work I did or should I try and pick out things that are more specific to each job? For example I worked in two nursing homes as a CNA and then as a traveling CNA with 2 agencies at the same time. Anyone able to give any feedback? I feel as if copying and pasting my job descriptions wouldn't look very good.

      Hi my name is Ahmed Rehman and Im a college student that attends Suffolk Community College. Im here to ask if there is any Physician Assistants around my area that are willing to allow me to shadow them. I was really interested in this career path since at a young age and I would love to shadow during the summer. I live around in East Patchogue and Brookhaven. Thank you.

      My Name is Stephanie, I am 28 years old and a recent graduate with my BS in Psychology and pre-med studies. I am currently applying for my Masters in Physician Assistant studies. I have shadowed abroad in the past for the Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children in the Dominican Republic and Peru this past year and I would welcome an opportunity to observe you work. I would be grateful for any amount of time that you could spare, whether that’s one day or a few and I am very flexible at your convenience. If you are amenable to letting me shadow you, please let me know of some days that might work for you and I will arrange my schedule to make those dates work. 
      I am happy to forward you my resume so that you may see my lifelong dedication and experience to the medical field aside from my studies. I realize that you are busy and that your time is valuable. If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach me by email sdelima1991@gmail.com or phone 603-318-5640. Thank you so much for your consideration—I look forward to hearing back from you.

      My name is Tessa and I am currently an MA at a dermatology clinic. I am aspiring to be a PA and will be applying during the next cycle. I have worked along side PAs for about 2 years now in dermatology and have experience working in a level 1 ED. However, I am looking for any PA shadow opportunity in Arizona that is not dermatology as I want to branch out and have an understanding of what PAs do in different fields. I live in Glendale but I am willing to travel anywhere in Arizona.
      If you are a PA or know a PA or any open opportunities feel free to reach out to me on here. 
      Thank you!

      I am currently an undergraduate and I am looking to apply next cycle 2020-2021. I have a list of schools I want to apply to that have pretty late application dates so I could get in as many health care hours as possible before application. I am planning to have ~1000 hours by application and ~2000 prior to matriculation. My GPA and GRE are very high. I have volunteer, leadership, shadowing, and research experience. My question is for schools that do not have a 1000+ hour requirement would it be more beneficial to apply a few months earlier or to wait until I hit the 1000 hour benchmark. Will it make much of a difference? Is it better to apply early because of rolling decisions or try to get as many hours before application?
