I got an email on December 3rd to interview on December 14th. I submitted my application on October 7th. Hope that helps!

Wow, congrats and good luck to you!!

Would you mind sharing your stats?

My stats:

patient care hours= 640

GPA= 3.87

Science GPA= 3.81

 

The interview went well, two professors interviewed me at once so it was a little intense and they pretty much asked the normal questions but also some personal questions like what is your biggest disappointment?, if you could change anything in your life what would it be? and then they gave me an essay to read and I had to write a response.  I thought it was weird that there wasn't a tour or information session and that I didn't get to see or interact with the other students being interviewed.  The professors that interviewed me also said that they are still in the process of becoming a masters program and are waiting for approval.  They told my friend this at her interview last year, so I don't know when they will actually become a masters program. Hope that helps!  Good luck to everyone!

Thanks for sharing.  What do you consider to be the "normal questions?"  There's plenty of info online about common interview questions, but I'm curious to hear what your experience was... if you don't mind.  Thanks and good luck!

Hi there! I was interviewed on Dec. 14 as well. My status was "application sent to committee" even after the interview. Next time I checked it was after I got the acceptance letter and now it is says "file return to admissions after comm.rev." I am not sure when it actually changed, though. I submitted my application Aug. 24. Hope that helps.

It makes a SMALL difference, I believe,  how early you submitted the application.

 

GPA, completed courses, a Bachelors, recommendations, healthcare hours  and how many times you applied make the difference

Okay, yeah I have gotten interviews from other places. I think it's the fact that I haven't taken lifespan developmental pyschology even though I am taking it in the spring. Would you think they take that into consideration as well? So I might just drop it?

I would not drop anything. I had an interview last year in April. Send them a updates transcript showing them that the class is in progress. My friend did that and she got accepted.

April, wow really okay. It's just annoying because I had to argue my philosophy class because they said it wasn't writing comprehensive. Then told me my developmental pyschology didn't go through adolescence so that's why I am signed up for this psychology class. Okay I guess I won't drop it. Wow really that late? Thank you for your help. I sent them that I am taking the class when I submitted my app should I send it again?

      I had to retake one class my freshman year, and I really do not want to waste a few sentences in my personal statement to speak about it. Although, I also understand it is best to address it somewhere. Is there another place on CASPA to discuss shortcomings on your application? I do not see a place, but I want to make sure I am not missing something.

      I know Yale has an online pa program, what is a competitive applicant for Yale online? Also does anyone else have an online physician assistant program? 
       
      Thank you

      Hello everyone! I did not see a thread for the applications for Gannon University in Erie, PA? Has anyone applied as a post-baccalaureate student? They do have a 5 year combined bachelor's and master's program but I believe they accept a few students besides their undergraduate class.

      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!

      So I finally got a job at my dream hospital!! I am currently working there as a Patient Care Technician/ PCT. However, I will be leaving for PA school next year. I really want to return to this hospital and work as a PA! The problem is that getting a job at my hospital is super competitive. Is there a way for me to ensure/ increase my chances of getting a PA job in this facility in the future?
       
      (Also, what do you guys think of requesting a absense of leave instead of quitting? Can I be able to come back to the hospital to pursue a higher position?)

      Thanks in advance!
