2015-2016 Application Cycle

Recommended Posts

I also got an email with the interview ranking rubric and saying that I am eligible for an interview, but I honestly don't know if that's a huge advantage...since I assume most of the 700 applicants will be eligible for an interview and will be fighting for 18 seats. This is the last school I'm waiting to hear back from and my only chance to go to PA school next year, but I have started applying for full-time jobs with patient contact so I'll have a back-up gap year plan.

I have an interview March 9.. Does anyone know how many people they will interview for the 18 seats? The email said the interview will have 10 people, but it is a half day interview so I'm not sure if there's also an afternoon interview session

I received my interview invite at the beginning of February for a half day interview in March. the email basically said the first 10 people to respond would have an interview..

It was odd

 

Has anyone heard anything recently?

Thank you! They start with a overview of the program, then a group of 3 interviewers will interview each candidate indivudally. A few students gave us a tour of the building while others were being interviewed. And there is also a group activity. After the interview is complete, you can eat lunch with current students, which I recommend because you get to learn more about the program that way! The interview is very relaxed and everyone was very nice and approachable. 

 

Also, yes they are only accepting 18 students. The class size is 41 but 23 of the spots have been previously filled by students in their 5 year program! 

 

Good luck!!

Can anyone tell me what the interview was like? Do they really only accept 18 people?

 

Yes for the 18 people. Cab415 explained the interview well, except at my interview it was 4 interviewers but one was observing. Also, the director gave us a tour and we were sent to eat lunch by ourselves. About half of us skipped lunch because we were not going to be with students or anything. The individual interview is typical of others with each person being asked different questions. Also, the writing component was different for each person but is nothing to be worried about!

Posting about the 2016-2017 application cycle for the January 2018 start. I had an interview February 15th, and I was just wondering if anyone has heard back from them!
