I haven't seen a thread started for this year yet so I thought I would start one. I know I'm stressing like crazy just waiting to hear something! Who else is applying here?

I received a call last week and was scheduled an interview for next week.

15 minute interview with the director, ethics essay, and anatomy/physiology/chemistry assessment test that will not affect acceptance.

 

Good luck to everyone applying!

When did they call you last week? And did you turn your app in early? I know the deadline was sept 1 so it seems like they are still probably looking at applications.

I hand delivered my application to the admission's office august 2 or 3rd since I live in Baton Rouge. I believe they are doing rolling admissions this year. I received an call last Wednesday or Thursday I think.

I saw on the website that they pushed the deadline to submit applications to Sept. 1.  Hopefully we will hear something in the next couple weeks!

the interviews are being done now.  i wonder  how long after you get a decision.

interview was short.  no real questions such as why you want to be a pa vs md.  ethical question was essay.  if grades are good, a&p exam good, probable acceptance.  there is a website you can google on possible questions for pa interview to review.

I'm confused on the interview/acceptance process! Do they start accepting people without having finished the interviews? Good luck to all of you! I know how I'm feeling right now and I'm sure I'm not alone!

Your not! I'm sure I was feeling the same, but I believe they are doing the interview/acceptances in groups. But I'm not sure how the groups are determined. My interview is next week so the next group of invites may be going out after that. Helpfully you get your invite then or sooner!

Don't fret just yet! It's hard to gauge based on the past interview process at OLOL College, as they were all done at one time with about sixty candidates. Other programs around the country only interview maybe five people at a time every other week. That being said if only two or three interview groups are set (I received an invitation for second week October just last week) there could still be half the slots available. They also may not accept everyone in the interview group and people may not choose to accept them back! I know it doesn't help to completely relieve your anxiety but maybe this helps it lessen just a little bit! Good luck to everyone!

Does anyone have any insights into the anatomy, physiology and chemistry exam during the interview session?

 

I have an interview. I'm a nervous nelly!! There is a resource outline on the website but from what I've reviewed on it it's just a&p.

I saw the resource from the website ... But it's really just an outline of a whole A&P course in my opinion. Just wondering if it was to make sure you know the basics or more in depth to see who really knows their stuff. It's been a while since I've taken a course.

      Hey everyone! 
       
      I was recently accepted into a program for fall of 2020. BIOCHEM was not a prerequisite, but I have been currently retaking the class in case I had to re apply. My acceptance is conditional based on having an up to date physical and that is It (I already submitted the physical). My question is, is It worth finishing up this class strong? Or should I stop putting effort into the class and relax until my program starts? I’m not sure what to do & don’t want to waste time studying if I do not have to! Thanks !!

      Hello, I am having a lot of trouble trying to narrow down schools to apply to. Where I currently live, most of the schools nearby I cannot apply to because of my stats so I am seeking out of state options. I am ending my sophomore year so I still have another year before I can begin applying (and another year to continue to boost my GPA). Any help would be appreciated!
       GPA currently: 3.426 ( My last semester has not been added in still and my science GPA would be similar)
      I am not taking Ochem 2 or biochem but I have planned/taken genetics, cell bio, microbio, ochem 1, 2 semesters of general bio and 2 semesters of general chem, med term, med ethics, anatomy, physiology, and most other pre-reqs. My main issue is that I have AP credit for statistics that my university accepts for my BS degree but I have noticed that there are some PA schools that do not accept that. I am also extremely involved  and by the time I apply, I will have a high number of service/leadership hours (President of my schools Pre-PA Association, chapter correspondent and philanthropy committee for my sorority, recruitment chair for the universities Relay for Life, and involved in other orgs). I have worked as a nursing assistant at the city's major hospital for over a year and I am seeking another job as a scribe in the ER. I have not begun shadowing yet because of COVID affecting my summer opportunities. 
      If you have experience in applying or likes/dislikes of literally any schools, I would appreciate it! I am not trying to decide on a school right now, I am simply trying to gain insight on potential schools to apply to since the ones near me are not options (Ohio/Michigan area). I have started a detailed list of schools I have researched, but I am struggling to find realistic options and those that I would be able to apply to.
      Thanks!
