.

In the interviews I have had, one writing assignment was about what you would do if you saw a student cheating and another was what is a pa's role in heart disease or something like that. As for a group activity, the one I had at Mercy College was that we were given a list of qualities and we had to discuss among ourselves what the top 3 qualities a pa should have.

You're welcome. Make sure you know the difference between a nurse practitioner and a pa .. Schools seem to like that question. What the role of a pa is ..

Right, I've seen a lot of blogs and posts comparing and contrasting the two. They do seem to be quite similar, however, key differences can make or break your decision.

Hey did you get a informational package in the mail before your interview?

before the interview I got an email with an interview day overview and where to go but that was it.

Congrats! I interviewed that day too!! Should we make a Facebook group or something for everyone who will be entering the program so we can get to know each other. I know I'll be needing a place to live and possibly a roommate because I currently live in Maryland.

 

And Amber, I got an email about a month in advance asking me to come in for an interview.
