2015-2016 Application Cycle

Recommended Posts

Congrats SalmoTrutta! May I ask if you were a Methodist alum? I applied, haven't heard anything yet. Methodist looks like a great program.

NC30, I was accepted to Methodist without being a Methodist undergrad. My impression is being a Methodist undergrad would help with getting an interview. However, at the end of the day, it comes down to whether they believe you are a good match. I will echo Salmo Trutta sediment that the program is very family oriented. But, so are a lot of program. What separates Methodist is they really only select applicants with the "it factor." They truly care less about your statistics and more about your heart for serving others. They believe in their curriculum and ability to teach you science of medicine. What is more difficult is teaching someone to be passionate about caring for people. So if that sounds like you, I encourage you to apply to Methodist, you will not be disappointed.

Absolutely agree nexton9686. Are you a current student or will you be starting in 2016? To NC30, no, I was not a Methodist Alum. I went to a "state university" and have also been a NC resident for over 15 years now. I wish you good luck and best wishes!

Thank you both! I was under the impression that the early interviews were for qualified alum, which is why I asked.

 

I work for Cape Fear (main hospital in the Fayetteville area), and several staff--physicians and PAs--have nothing but praise for Methodist PA grads. The program is definitely doing something right. :)

Salmo, I interviewed on 6/26. Brodan, I had my CASPA verified 5/16, was offered an interview 6/8, interviewed 6/26 and was offered a seat on 6/29. It's a very efficient and laid back interview process, this program really has all their ducks in a row.

So I know I am late in the game and I hope I am not to late but I just applied and I am hoping to at least get a chance to interview. I see that people were already accepted so I hope I don't get thrown on the alternative list. When I read about this program I instantly fell in love. Even the way the FAQ page was written is brilliant! If any has some incite for me I would truly like to know of it is to late. Did I miss the big labouski? (Lol)

They do rolling admissions so they accept as they go along. They have one interview a month with 8 people. I was in the first round in June and was wait listed.

So that means they have interviewed 24 people so far? Do you know if the undergrad students are interviewed separate or are part of the group of 8? I looks like they get back to you pretty quickly. Hopefully I get an interview before the holidays :).

I believe they have interviewed 24 people thus far. The Methodist undergrads are interviewed within the same group so they are part of the 8 people.

Current student here. Just wanted to wish all good luck. Methodist is a great program. You guys have great reason to be excited about the prospect of attending here. I don't have any inside admissions information, but shoot me an email if you have any questions about the program. nnewton@student.methodist.edu

Has anyone that applied late like me heard anything? I was finalized the first week of September and have hear nothing. I am wondering if they are still working through the early applicants.
