Thoughts on today's interviews??

Recommended Posts

Well, we survived the day! Time to pat yourself on the back. This has definitely been the most interesting style of interview I've ever encountered. I don't feel like I was able to gauge my candidacy, but I'm crossing my fingers that I will open my mailbox and find an acceptance letter in it, at some point. Any thoughts or comments regarding the day? Good luck to you all and I hope we meet again as the class of 2018!!

I was surprised they didn't ask me more questions for the individual interview, they only asked me 5 questions...not sure how I did. Hoping I get in though! Good luck to all

I thought the team process was fairly odd. I happened to be assigned both roles that failed at their jobs! I agree that it was extremely difficult to judge how you did.

I really like the school and the whole interview process. Also it was nice to hear from the current students that they feel so much confident at their clinicals. I hope we all hear soon. They told us Letters be mailed prior to thanksgiving. Hope for the best.

I honestly thought I did poorly compared to others. I did not practice interview questions or spend time researching the process. I literally worked 26 hours prior to the interview ending the night before with a combative patient. I woke up at 3am to drive out to AACC from Virginia.

I was just me. A very tired and nervous me.

I loved meeting and talking with the current students, I really identified with them and felt comfortable with them. I felt like I belonged.

I think, for me, the group interview was the hardest. It seemed like everyone was trying to say the "right"thing. I didn't realize this until it was over and was kicking myself for just saying what I felt. I was sure it went badly and I was crushed. I cried. I fell in love with this program. Why didn't I say this or that....why didn't I prep harder? I ruined my shot!

....and then....I got an acceptance letter.

      This is going to sound pretty dumb but I'm serious! I'm so confused when it comes to applying to PA schools regarding the prerequisite coursework. I know MEDEX say that the courses can't be a part of prior training, but then I read online articles about how to incorporate prereqs for PA schools into your undergrad experience, killing 2 birds with 1 stone sorta thing...I understand the necessary courses. But I'm having a hard time discerning if the coursework can have been done as a part of one's undergrad. For example the cellular bio I took in my undergrad. Will that be applicable to MEDEX? Or does every prereq have to be done after completing one's bachelors? By the way I have a BA, not a BS. I'm late to the party:(

      Hey everyone,
      It was great to meet so many amazing, skilled people at the interview yesterday!  I was wondering if anyone wanted to keep in touch after the interviews?  It’s always good to network, right?  Anyway, hit me up if anyone wants to talk about anything PA related or not.  I wish everyone the best of luck in all your interviews and future PA endeavors!

      I believe invites for Anchorage interviews were around this time last year (based on last years ANC forum feed). Starting this topic for news, collaboration and support. Good luck to all.

      Hey everyone!
      I am creating this form so everyone that who has received an acceptance phone call/letter can communicate together more efficiently. Has anyone received a phone call yet? If and when you receive an acceptance phone call/letter be sure to let us know so everyone can keep track of who is going to be the future classmates of Tacoma Class 6. Best wishes to everyone!

      I'd like to meetup on Friday in the evening if anyone is interested. I'm thinking seven seas brewing, it's close to campus.
