Congratulations!  Which day did you interview?  I interviewed on Thursday last week, still nervously waiting.

I interviewed on the 14th and found out on the 19th as well.

I was contacted yesterday. Anyone else going that day? If so, perhaps we could share cabs.

 

I'll be there as well that day. Still finalizing my travel arrangements, but would absolutely share cab fares. It's a very exciting time!

What hotel are you staying at?

 

I'm debating between taking cabs and renting a car.

Awesome! I still have hope. I got my email Sept 28th. They seem to be slowly making their way through the email list. Good luck and let us know how things go!!!

I stayed at the aloft durham. It was a 5 minute walk to the program in the morning. Really nice- and I think rates are lower because it opened recently.

Thank you - that is helpful :)  They didn't happen to have a shuttle from the airport, did they? Just trying to plan accordingly.

 

Thanks again!

Would anyone recommend emailing the program to update HCE hours if I haven't heard anything from them?

Anywhere else I'd say go for it...Duke is pretty clear that they don't want to hear from people until Jan 2nd.

      Hi everyone! I knew that Duke's supplemental application would be a beast, but I was just curious if anyone had experience with the patient care and shadowing tabs? Here is what I am struggling with: 
      - PATIENT CARE: can the description be the same as on my CASPA? And what exactly should I be putting for the agreeable and disagreeable aspects of my responsibilities? 
      - Shadowing: can I put the same descriptions as my CASPA? 
      Thanks guys! Best of luck to everyone!

      Hi PAs as Pre-PAs: I am fortunate enough to say that I have a choice of PA programs to choose from- Emory and Duke. I have visited both schools during the interview, and both are impressive. I’ll be moving with my husband, who will need to find a job wherever we end up, and it seems like Atlanta may have more opportunities for jobs in his field (landscape architecture). I’m thrilled but a bit stumped as to which to choose. I’d sincerely appreciate some insight from those that are familiar with the programs. What would be on your pro and con list? Thank you!

      Hello!
      As I come closer to making some tough decisions regarding programs, I am hoping to gather information and opinions from current students from the above programs or perhaps students who have interviewed at a combination of the above programs. More specifically, I am wanting to know if any students, interviewees, or alumni would be willing to share their personal experiences regarding 1) best and strongest aspects of the program 2) aspects that could be improved upon 3) level of support from faculty/program resources and 4) anything you were surprised about after matriculating into the program. I’d also like to know about any goofy things (location, parking, student perks) that you’d consider a plus or minus about the program. 
      I have interviewed and been accepted into two of these programs and interview at the third fairly soon. I really love each for different reasons...proximity to spouse, culture of the area, resources, etc., but find that having interviewed with so many programs back-to-back, I wish I would have conversed with current students during the interview day more extensively (interview and travel fatigue... 😶)
      Anyhow, I would appreciate any and all comments. 
      Thanks!

      Recent applicant accepted to multiple NC schools. Wondering if it is worthwhile to attend some of the private, high-ranked schools or if it makes more sense to favor in-state tuition, especially with sights set on primary care? 
      Schools I applied to: Duke, Wake, Campbell, UNC, ECU
      Would appreciate insight into any of the above programs, and whether the private schools really do give you a leg up!
      Thank you!

      I know it is early in the cycle, but I figured I would start a thread! Who else is applying? I am hoping to submit by end of next week!
