Thanks for starting this thread. I submitted CASPA to them just a few days before their priority deadline; I kept editing and re-editing all those essays or else I would have submitted much earlier. I didn't get the "supplemental application" until 9/4 or so, and submitted the payment quickly.. not sure if that means I missed the priority deadline or not. Praying I didn't, MBKU is one of my top programs.

Thanks for starting the forum!  Does anyone know when we will hear from MBKU? Based on previous forum, they started the invites in November.

Hi! MBKU is one of my top programs, too. I submitted right before the early consideration deadline as well. I've asked them about the supplemental app date because I didn't pay the fee until 9/3, but they said that as long as you completed your CASPA by 9/1, then you made that early deadline! 

 

And @fsaelee, I believe that's correct. If you log in to your MyKetchum portal, it says they don't start reviewing until after 11/1 unfortunately. If you made the 9/1 deadline, then it's my understanding you'll be contacted shortly after 11/1 because they will have reviewed your app already.

so there's the CASPA application/essays and there's more questions for a secondary?? or is it just payment for the secondary application?

Hey guys,

 

I just got an email invitation from MBKU to interview, but when I try to select an interview day preference, I get an email saying those dates were unavailable. I've tried a couple different dates/times but I keep getting the email. Is anyone else having this problem?

Alright, the website seems to work for now. Sure Biology PrePa, my CASPA was verified sometime in late June and payed the supplemental MBKU fee on 7/9. And yes, I received the email today.

I also received an invitation today.  However, I've recently been accepted at one of my top choice schools, so I will be declining this invite.  Good luck to everyone!  Oh, and recheck your scheduled interview choices... I got an email that they had a technical problem and you might need to re-choose.  :)

Hey Efsalaza

 

Here are some of the tips for interview at MBKU: Don't be shy, the weather is really nice here so dress well, don't disrespect any other professions during your interview (such as NP, nursing etc), have a thorough understanding of the PA profession and be ready to answer what a PA means and what their role is. If you live locally, I highly recommend coming to the Open House on October 24th (need to RSVP) so you can get to know the faculty and some details about the program. It will help lower your anxiety on interview day if you tend to get nervous! Good luck :)

I just gave up my interview spot due to being accepted into one of my top programs. Hope this opens up a spot for someone else. Good luck to you all!

      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!

      I wanted to know if anyone could add any input on this; 
      I had requested a PA for a letter of evaluation. He was happy to agree to give one. I also had sent him a copy of my resume just because I thought that was the appropriate thing to do. 
      last week at work him had mentioned two things... he had brought it up to me that I didn't have my GPA posted on my resume and asked if if I was planning to put it on my resume. he also started asking me things like "do you want me to just not address GPA at all then?". So, for the copy of the resume I had sent to her, I didn't put my GPA in because I didn't think it was going to be helpful (my undergrad is a 3.35 which is not competitive) The whole purpose of sending him a 1 page resume was so that he could know a little more of what I have done in undergrad; like, have a little more amount of information of who I am outside of scribing. (I've been a scribe for about 9 months; about 5 of those months have been heavily involved with this particular PA, so although we haven't had many conversations personally its not like I am a stranger to him 
      The other thing that he requested is if I had personal statement finished. I will sincerely admit, I am quite behind on the application process as my personal statement still has work to do; I told him it's still being written. He asked if she should have a summary of it or something like that so he has more details to flesh out his evaluation letter. 
      I told her I would email her about the GPA issue and the personal statement summary because he was asking out loud in front of the other doctors and employees in the nurses station and I was a little shy to answer. I don't know why, but I wasn't expecting him to ask those questions.
      So here is what I was asking: 
      1. Should I have 3.35 on my resume at all? (I was a public health major)
      2. Is giving a personal statement/summary super necessary for you LOR evaluators? Because I really have alot more to do on my PS so I'm not sure how I can make a good summary in a short amount of time to give him; as well as the other evaluators.

      I am feeling unsure as to whether or not I will get into PA school. I have a bachelor's degree in Public Health Science. My cumulative gpa is a 3.92 and my science gpa is a 3.8 with 61 science course credits. I have 1,000 hours of patient contact currently from working as a physical therapy aide during undergrad. I am taking a gap year and working 36 hours per week as a medical assistant and also taking weekend shifts as a physical therapy aid to reach approximately 3,000 hours when I apply next year. I also have about 200 hours of other related experience through working as a medical receptionist and volunteering and have 100 hours from shadowing. I have about 500 hours of volunteer experience from a service trip for income equity, a social justice student group, volunteering with a group that works to fix low-income health disparities, an LGBTQ+ community health clinic, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and the philanthropy committee for my sorority. I am doing research with a nearby medical school and will have about 300 hours of research experience at the time I apply (this is a volunteer position). I was a teaching assistant for anatomy and physiology II for two years. I served as the president of a student organization and the vice president of the same organization, a program lead for a social justice organization, and I was the chair of philanthropy for my sorority. Other extracurricular involvements included Students Engaged in Public Health,  Sigma Kappa Sorority, Maryland Public Interest Research Group, Maryland Leadership Education and Development, and Ballet Company M. I am mostly concerned that I have not taken enough science credits and do not have enough patient contact. Are there other things I should work on to strengthen my profile? Should I take more science classes? Should I consider a master's in a science field? I studied public health because I am truly passionate about approaching patient care from this perspective and want to work in health administration health policy in addition to patient care, and I plan to explain this in my personal statement.
