Hello!

 

 I have applied to UAMS this year.  I was wondering how long it takes for them to get back to you about inviting you to an interview.  I applied to Christian Brothers, in Memphis, and they offered me an interview within a couple of days.  Does anyone know how long it takes and what the interview is like?  Of course, I'm assuming I get one.

 

Thanks so much!

Hello, I recently applied and received an email saying they have received my application and is in the process of reviewing it. Nothing else yet.

I have a friend that is in the inaugural class. She told me that she applied late and didn't have an interview until January/ February. Obviously it will be different for us applying for the third class/application cycle but I'm assuming it maybe awhile before we hear anything.

Please let me know if you heard anything!

 

Is there anyone going to the informational session next week?

They usually only do 1 - 2 interview sessions a month with 8-10 in each interview group starting in August and doing the last one in January. I applied last year in October and received an invitation in December for the January interview. It most likely depends on the information you applied with and how it compares to all the other applicants. So the time can greatly vary.  I know in my class, there were a few who interviewed before I even applied and heard they were accepted long after I had been. Luckily, I only had to wait 3 days after my interview to get the acceptance call whereas some of my classmates waited months.

I had an interview back in November and I still have not heard anything from UAMS. I called in January and Linda said the admissions committee was meeting and I would know something by Mid-January. After Mid-January passed, I called again and this time she told me I would for sure hear something at the end of the week around Feb. 6th. Now, it is another week later and still nothing. I am really starting to lose hope that there would be any spots left by now.

They aren't very good at quick communication.  Congrats on the interview.  I applied in June and literally haven't heard a word since that day.  It's safe to say I'm out, but I'm not sure why I can't be informed of that.

      Hi all, 
      I recently had my second PA school interview for this cycle. As I reflect on my interview, I realize I might have made a huge mistake, because I address my interviewers by their first name instead asking them what they would prefer. I was nervous and one thing I kept reminding myself is to thank the interviewers by their name before exiting the room. 
      This interview is MMI style, so I am not sure how much this mistake will weigh in my interview.
      Thoughts? Any advice would be much appreciated.

      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 everyone! I’m looking to take on some more pre-PA students who need help with CASPA review, personal statement brainstorming/editing and interview prep.
      I’m 4.5 years out of PA school with experience in NYC and Baltimore and am a former interview committee member!

      Hi all,
       
      It is my first cycle applying and I am wondering if anyone has any guidance or suggestions towards interview preparation. I know that there are resources for mock interviews but they are usually $100+ just for one. Does anyone have any other ideas especially just to get started or how to become confident and ready on interview day? i am very personable and don't typically struggle during interview situations but with these I know I will be nervous and I don't want that to be the only impression left on the adcoms.
       
      Or when is a good time to begin the preparation and everything we should know about the schools before interviews? 
       
      Any feedback on things that helped you or you plan to do is much appreciated!
       
      Thanks and good luck to everyone!

      Hello everyone!
      My name is Kou-Lai and I am actually an undergraduate student who has an interest in becoming a Physician Assistant. I am doing a project for one of my class and I have to interview a professional about their community. More specifically, we are focused on how different communities use different languages and writings to communicate to each other. I will be using your answers as part of my project (in the form of a presentation), but will remain anonymous. 
      Please help me and Answer as freely as you would like. I really appreciate it!
       
      1.      Do Physician Assistants communicate with other Physician Assistants, or people of other profession, often? How often do you communicate with other people during your day (even on your days off)?
       
      2.      In what ways are you communicating with other professionals? Writing? etc? Are there specific ways you address, speak, or write to other professionals?
       
      3.      What about non-professionals? If you meet students often, what differences do you see when speaking/writing to them compared to professionals?
       
      4.      When talking to patients/people outside the community, how do you do so? Do you use a different way of speaking to them?
       
      5.      What types of writing do PA professionals do on the job? Is everything (that is written) to be communicated? Or are they for any other purposes?
       
      6.      Are there special documents, forms, or papers that are unique to a professional in the PA field?  How do they relate to the PA community? What are some details that are usually included on the documents?
       
      7.      What is the most important type of document that a student should know/be able to produce? What special language or writing should a student use if they are interested in the PA career.
       
      8.      What is the best way a student can approach this community? How can they start learning how to speak or write in this profession?
       
      9.      Do you do research as part of the job? Do you do research outside the job? Is research part of the job?
       
      10.  Can you share samples of the documents you’ve told me about today?   If not do you know of links, or websites, or other resources that would provide me with samples?
