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.

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?

I received an interview invite today as well :). I just submitted my preferences on their portal and was told my request was submitted successfully. Hopefully it worked! I'll keep you guys updated.

That is so awesome ! Congratulations! Did you get the interview invite today ? And if you don't mind sharing when your app was verified ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

 

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!

      Hello, I am having a lot of trouble trying to narrow down schools to apply to. Where I currently live, most of the schools nearby I cannot apply to because of my stats so I am seeking out of state options. I am ending my sophomore year so I still have another year before I can begin applying (and another year to continue to boost my GPA). Any help would be appreciated!
       GPA currently: 3.426 ( My last semester has not been added in still and my science GPA would be similar)
      I am not taking Ochem 2 or biochem but I have planned/taken genetics, cell bio, microbio, ochem 1, 2 semesters of general bio and 2 semesters of general chem, med term, med ethics, anatomy, physiology, and most other pre-reqs. My main issue is that I have AP credit for statistics that my university accepts for my BS degree but I have noticed that there are some PA schools that do not accept that. I am also extremely involved  and by the time I apply, I will have a high number of service/leadership hours (President of my schools Pre-PA Association, chapter correspondent and philanthropy committee for my sorority, recruitment chair for the universities Relay for Life, and involved in other orgs). I have worked as a nursing assistant at the city's major hospital for over a year and I am seeking another job as a scribe in the ER. I have not begun shadowing yet because of COVID affecting my summer opportunities. 
      If you have experience in applying or likes/dislikes of literally any schools, I would appreciate it! I am not trying to decide on a school right now, I am simply trying to gain insight on potential schools to apply to since the ones near me are not options (Ohio/Michigan area). I have started a detailed list of schools I have researched, but I am struggling to find realistic options and those that I would be able to apply to.
      Thanks!

      Hey good people! I hope you’re all well and healthy during this COVID-19 outbreak. Just wanted to start this early and see your progress on the 2020-21 PA applications!

      Hi, I was looking around on google and couldn’t find any direct information, but I was curious if anyone has a comprehensive list of schools that have waived the GRE due to the current situation afflicting our nation? Any information would be great. Thanks!
