Hello!

 I have received an interview from CBU scheduled for July 27th.  I was wondering if anyone has interviewed their recently and what the interview is like.  I was told that I have to write an essay in 30 minutes.  Anyone have an idea of what they ask for the essay?  Also, I was told that I will be interviewed by two people and I'll be done in about 2 hours.  Can anyone give me some tips, hints, or advice to doing well for the CBU interview?  

 

Thanks so much for all the help.

Spamming the student section with a bunch of pre-PA threads means you're doing it wrong.

I'm not sure what you mean?  Spam?  I'm looking for positive replies and advice.  I apologize if you find my posting "spam".  If anyone has any advice please feel free to let me know.  I'd love to hear it.

 

Thanks!

In all likelihood, the essay topic changes with each interview session and there may be more than one. They know people compare notes. On site essays are to see how you write when you have time constraints. Just relax. Given the competitiveness of PA admissions you may just alienate people with your questions. I'm not being evasive. I really have no idea about the questions but I do understand interviews and its unlikely you can do much of anything to prepare, assuming you already know about the school and why you want to be a PA. Just remember, an interview isn't an exam.

Thanks.  I really appreciate the tip.  If people are annoyed from a website they're really going to hate the competitiveness of PA school.  Thanks again.

Yes, I'm annoyed by this off topic thread being under the student section. I also get annoyed when papers are misfiled in patient's charts. All pre-pa threads should be under the "pre-pa" section.

Thank you for taking time to criticize.  I had a killer interview today.  Wish me luck!

Great interview meaning they checked your pulse? New school with provisional accreditation.

They get fully accredited in three weeks.  Seriously though, please save your negative comments for yourself.  Positive advice or encouragement is always welcome.  I hope you have a great day!

CBU treasurer,

 

100% sure? Did you file the ARC-PA papers? Not trying to be an a hole but since this thread is under my section I might as well participate. On what basis are you 100% sure you will receive full accreditation? Are you basing this on the fact that you think your teachers are awesome? I'm going to go out on a limb and say that you are. Do realize that the perceived awesomeness of professors has little to nothing to do with accreditation.

So you like your own post, are a braggart about having a "killer" interview, and only accept "positive comments" while rebuffing any form of constructive criticism?

 

Yeah, you should reexamine.

      Hello everyone!
      I was wondering if anyone knew how CBU calculated their prerequisite GPA? Do they do it on their own? Do they take your highest course if you’ve repeated a pre req? 
       
      If anyone has any info it is greatly appreciated!

      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! 
      Please send an email to applyingtopaschools@gmail.com for more info and pricing!

      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!
