Does anyone have any tips for the interview process? Was the interview conducted individually or in groups? Any advise to help me prepare will be greatly appreciated. :)

I just interviewed a few weeks ago.  I won't talk details, but I will tell you they will not have you sitting around, so be prepared to be on your toes.  .  

 

You have to be able to demonstrate how much you know about the profession as a whole, this will help prove your seriousness about being a PA.  Know the role of a PA in a healthcare team and in the healthcare system.  Touro is very serious about public health, hence the MPH.  Know PA current events such as legislation involving PAs.  Shadow PAs, join and read articles from CAPA/AAPA, and be familiar with other PA organizations. This will show that you truly want to be a PA and not just exploring because you read how great it is to be a PA.

 

The second piece of advice is be excited that you are there, be yourself, and have fun.

 

Just in case you were wondering, I was accepted into the program!  So good luck to you and never give up.

The interview day is definitely very busy with a variety of different activities. I interviewed November 4th and am very excited to be able to say I received a phone call notifying me of my acceptance on Friday :)

I literally wrote "No." to the ones that did not apply to me, which were most of the questions in the first portion.

thanks for your answer! Also, did you write in essay format for the last three questions, or just like a paragaph?

No problem. Honestly I don't think it matters... my first answer was one long paragraph and for the rest of the questions I had several shorter paragraphs for each. Hope this helps!

I agree, I believe quality substance is what matters in your paragraph not length.  I have asked people who reads these applications and they do not like unnecessary fluff.

I received a supplemental back in October after applying in September. I have yet to hear about an interview.

How are you dealing with the waiting game? I'm so stressed!

 

Keep your heads up, applicants!! Love to you all!

Does anyone know how many interviews they hold or when they send out rejection letters? I emailed Ms. Bible and was told my application is still under review, but its almost February and I'm getting nervous!

tentatively the last interview date is 3/23 so there is still time! I was only told 5 days before my interview that I had one!
