Recommended Posts

Congrats to everyone who got in.

 

I recieved an interview offer today, and was hoping you would be able to let us know about the interview process; how many people interviewed, when did it start/end, group or one on one interviews, etc.

 

Thank you for any info, and good luck to everyone.

Hey Shawno19,

 

There were 10 applicants at my interview. The interview process is 2 people interviewing you. The faculty staff were so kind and inviting. You get a tour of the new building and campus. The facility is amazing! They have gross anatomy and a trauma room. We would be the first to use it. There are no group interviews or essays. I was accepted the same day. Good luck! I hope this information is helpful.

Yes it was very helpful and made me feel better that there were only 10 people interviewing, since I will be at least the third round of interviews. I Interviewed at eastern Virginia medical school PA program and there were 120 people interviewing that day I believe.

We were told at our interview that they would hold interview sessions 1x/wk. The first two sessions would be 10 interviewees and the following 4 sessions would be 20.

Hi Nina_Albany! Can you tell us how the interview was set up? How long did the whole process take when you got there? Is there a writing section to the interview? Did they ask ridiculous question or were they basic interview questions? Thanks ! Congrats on getting in !

Hey everyone! I got a interview invite yesterday morning and I picked for 02/05. So nerve racking but exciting! I heard the campus and staff are great. Can anyone who has already interviewed give us some idea of the process?

 

I'm wondering if their is a writing section like most colleges?? Do they ask tricky questions or was it basic "Getting into PA school" questions? How long did the whole process take with them? I will be traveling far to attend the interview so I need to schedule my day around that. 

 

Thanks !! Congrats to everyone who got in already!

I still have not seen Marist PA appear on the 2016 CASPA Full Program's List. I read through their website and it mentions, "Students will apply to the program via a centralized application system operated by the Central Application Service for Physician Assistants (CASPA). Applications will be accepted through CASPA beginning in mid-April and will close on January 15, 2017 for the second cohort starting in May 2017.cohort via CASPA."

Did anyone interviewing on the 5th or 12th get a confirmation email when you accepted the invite to interview?

 

I replied that afternoon but never got an email back. I've called three times the last two days and it rings to a voicemail that is full. I resent the email, but getting worried they didn't get my email and by the time I get in contact with them all the spots for the 5th will be taken.

I emailed my confirmation as well yesterday and haven't heard back yet either. I just think they're busy and will get back to us by Thursday.

I emailed my interview confirmation on 12/23/15 and received a confirmation email/itinerary/directions, etc. on 1/7/16. Hope this helps!

Yes thank you, I was just worried because they said if they don't receive conformation by tomorrow our spot will be offered to someone else, so when I didn't hear anything back I was getting worried I would lose my spot.

 

But I actually got q hold of someone and they said they would send out that info later this week for the people interviewing.

Hey Shawno19,

 

Did you also interview in July 2015? I interviewed in July 2015 and was wondering if we crossed paths.

 

Julio

No, I applied very late in the application cycle 13-14 and that was one of the few schools I liked that were still accepting applications. I applied earlier in the cycle for 14-15 and looked more northeast (where I'm from) and Texas/Southern planes (where I did undergrad and live now) so didn't add them to list that cycle.

 

But that is a great program, i was really impressed when I interviewed there, was bummed when I didn't get in, but was actually surprised I even got an interview there considering I had no hands on patient care experience and very little shadowing/volunteer hours when I applied. Was a great experience though and worth going just to see what a top flight program is like and have the opportunity to go through the interviews process.

Thank you for all of this information! Makes me slightly less nervous knowing what will take place. I hope to be in both of your shoes in 5 days!

Hey how did your interview go? Have you heard anything back yet?

The interview process was great. Discussion about the program from the director and then a tour of the facility, interview with two faculty, and then a tour of the campus. Really relaxed and everyone was extremely friendly and welcoming. They really just want to know more about who you are. Good luck!

Everyone is replying with interview dates from Marist PA. Did you all apply through CASPA or directly to the program. Marist did not appear on the list of programs in NYS during this 2015-16 cycle.  Can anyone who received an interview clarify?
