2011-2012 Application

Recommended Posts

I recently recieved an email from the program stating that my application is complete and that they are going to start sending invites for interviews in late January or early February. Has anybody else been contacted by UTPA?

I recieved the same thing. I think it said that it was the first review of my application just for completeness and didn't apply to their graduate school application.

I received the same thing. However, last year I didn't hear from them until the end of Feb...so start practicing your interviewing skills because it's still fair game! Speaking from experience :/ lol

does anybody know how many people applied this year, and how many UTPA typically interviews? Also, are interviews group or individual? thanks.

Yes, I did. It was really nice, but having been the only school I applied to last year, my nerves got the better of me and therefore didn't do so hot. So practice with a friend a couple of times if you're shy because they'll pick up on that pretty quick. There was a cognitive and noncognitive interview, 20 min each. Nothing out of the ordinary, they just wanted to know the basic stuff "what's a PA, why PA and not MD, your experiences shadowing, why YOU and not him/her, etc" I'd say the last question was the hardest. OOZE CONFIDENCE :)

This year according to the staff of UTPA it's only two interviews some of you will be on Saturday 28, morning or afternoo and the other on febraury 11...

It's only be 80 interviews for 50 sit there it's a good chance like 70% that your are in of you do good in both interviews...

Good luck to everyone!!!
