Hey aquariuspa,

 

Wow Thanks for the awesome advice! I signed up for the info session you mentioned, despite it saying not to enroll past the 13th. Haha I hope they don't mind. Thank you for telling me about it seeing the facility and meeting the faculty will definitely relieve some anxiety!

 

 

Will you be intervirwing as well?

You're welcome. I am a current PA student at MBKU. I will be helping out with the information session so I will see you there. Good luck!

Hey guys, I'm also scheduled for the Nov. 6th interview day. For a previous interview, I met up with several other candidates the night before to get to know eachother and help ease the nerves a little, and it was great to know some of the people come interview day. If anyone is interested in meeting up the evening of the 5th, PM me!

My friend goes to the optometry school and most of her clinicals are in different cities and states. Does anyone know whether this would be the case for the PA program? Thanks!

Not true for PAs. Most rotations are within orange county (Kaiser Permanente, St. Jude, CHOC etc) and LA county. There is one site in Brawley as well which is closer to SD. Hope this helps!

So close to being nervous together at the same interview haha but I picked the 20th 0745 early bird special.

 

Well at the info session they mentioned the number "120" for interviews with abt 20-25 at each sess. But keep in mind those 120 are for the early consideration (turned stuff in prior to 09/01) people so I am unsure of how many interviews will be conducted after the early consideration (turned stuff in after 09/01). They also said the class size will be 40. However they did not mention the waitlist /:

 

hope that helps!

Congrats @plederer! :) When did you get your interview email?

Thank you so much, congrats on yours!! I'll be seeing you December then (: I was emailed Monday October 19th around noon.

 :D

 

An interesting thing to note is that they gave me until 11/23 to choose an interview date or decline the interview completely. I thought this was pretty thoughtful.. I got another interview invite from a different school and not only was there a deadline to decide of ~36 hours after I'd received the email invitation, the date had already selected for me. I was really stressed out because the date didn't work out for me!

A few days after you submit CASPA to MBKU you will receive an email with your login information for your MyKetchum account. You can't pay the fee (the only thing needed to submit the supplemental) until you get that login info. Hope that helps!

I would guess you're okay. My impression of this program is that they are very understanding. I thought I missed the early decision deadline because I basically did the same thing you did, and didn't have access to the "supplemental" until a day or two after the (early decision) deadline. Everything was fine though. If I were you I would call (I heard back quickly when I called a few days ago) and/or email Leslie tomorrow to double check, but I don't think your application will be considered late. Hopefully you're good!

Not sure if I'm considered early... My CASPA was verified 9/13 and I submitted the supplemental fee 9/14. I interviewed last cycle and was put on the waitlist for acceptance. Hoping to interview again this cycle. Good luck to everyone else!

      Hi all!! Congrats to everyone who got invited for an interview for AACC/UMB this year! I'm so excited! I've never applied to PA school before, and AACC is the only school I was able to apply to (due to finances, proximity to home, etc.) Have any of you been through this interview process before? What can we expect? Also, how are you all preparing for Interview Day? Can't wait to meet everyone! Good luck to all!

      Can PA's do a residency in another country? And would they be able to practice their certification in that country, should they decide to move to that country??

      I will be attending bootcamp for the Navy in October 2018. I have a bachelors degree in sports medicine and will be going in as an E-3 for HM. I plan on attending C school for surgical technician so I can gain more experience before applying to PA school. I would like to know what is the minimum amount of time I am most likely to serve before I can be promoted to an E-5 and apply to IPAP or a civilian PA program. And does anyone have any tips on how I can expedite my journey to becoming a PA (perhaps, should I choose a different C-school)? Any info helps. Thanks!
