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 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!

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.

They are doing rolling interviews this year.  They are in the first round of interviews now, then they will select another group for interviews.

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.

      Hello! Looking for PAs to shadow in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles County, and/or Ventura County areas! I have been looking around with little/no luck, and most of the PAs in my area seem to work at the local Kaiser, and I'm not sure how easy it would be to shadow their PAs. If anyone knows of any PAs that would be willing to let a student shadow them for a few days, I would appreciate their contact info! Thank you in advance, and good luck to all!

      Hello everyone, I am currently in my second semester of my didactic year. I struggled so much my first semester and ended up having to remediate one class. I feel like I retained nothing from my first semester and can barely recall things. I get so anxious everyday over my future . I have no idea how to face my family if I do fail. Also it would really crush me because this is what I've been working towards for the past 3 years since I graduated high school.  Compared to my other classmates I feel like I know the least. Living in fear everyday is really getting to me emotionally and I don't know what to do.

      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!

      Hey all, 
      Been reading a lot about applicants who have taken a biology/health-science/etc. masters program in an effort to improve their GPA or to "show" PA schools that they can handle tough, upper level coursework. I was wondering what you'd consider the "cut-off" to be for when you should or should not pursue a masters? Anything less than 3.7? 3.6? 3.5? 3.4? 
      Quite frankly I've been considering this myself (I'd be happy to provide my stats). I know a lot of factors obviously go into a decision like this (trends, cGPA, sGPA, pre-reqGPA, HCE, shadowing, the application as a whole, etc.), but just kinda wondering what peoples inclinations are on this. 
      Thanks!

      HI! I am a current student looking to gain clinical experience as a medical scribe but am not sure where to start! I have tried to do my own research but every site I find seems to offer jobs once I am certified ( which I am not) . I want to make sure I take the correct steps and having someone I could come to with questions would be extremely helpful! thanks in advance !
