Hey,

 

I'm currently a sophomore at Rutgers hoping to be admitted to the PA program. Can those both admitted and rejected share some stats (gpa, experience, LOR's) ? Also anyone take gap years?

Hi everyone,

 

My application was verified on August 24th and I have not heard anything from the school yet. Just wondering if anyone is in the same boat?? Let me know!

I actually don't know whether I was accepted or rejected yet...I have had an interview but I'm still playing the waiting game...HOWEVER, my GPA is a 3.74, I have about 300 hours of experience (which is probably on the low end of the spectrum) but a portion of those hours were from working as an EMT...I submitted four LORs; one from a PA, two from professors and one from a paramedic...lastly, I'm in the process of graduating from undergrad with a double major (biotechnology and bio/pre-pa)

 

Not sure that helps because I don't know my fate yet lol, but good luck to you!

It was pretty relaxed. Programs include 1. compustour

2. Informational period: information about the school.

3. Writing assignment

4. Interviews:one on one.

Advice: be yourself and don't fake anything. They just want to know you.

 

 Hi Alphana,

 

I have an interview tomorrow (!!!) and I was wondering about the writing assignment, can you tell me generally what it includes?

Thanks so much!

 

Best,

Lowrie

Writing samples is hard to prepare for , so I advise you think of a wind range of issues,event or stories about yourself. Ones that may desmostrate sad, happy, regretful, joyful, thankful, difficult moments for you. Good luck with the interview and don't forget to be yourself.

 

 

 

Good luck!! Lemme know if you have any other questions.

Congrats kmai! I also got my invitation to interview today as well, but I'm looking to change the date they've set me up for. I sent in my CASPA near the deadline.

 

For those of you who have already interviewed, I had a question about when the day ends. If I'm scheduled for a time earlier in the morning and the interview goes on for other candidates into the afternoon, will I be officially done when my interview is finished or will I have to wait until all of the interviews are done for the day? Thanks in advance!

@elleaie you get called in one by one for interviews, then you can either choose to go back to the conference room with everyone and ask questions or you can choose to leave!

Hey,

I recently had to turn down my acceptance because of family reasons...I hope this opens a slot for one of you.

Rutgers is a great program, and while I am sad I won't be attending, I know someone great will get my spot.

Happy Holidays!

I'm interviewing Dec 6th! I had just come to accept that I probably wasn't going to get any interview invites this year and then this came out of the blue. So shocked!

just a heads up for anyone who is still playing this gruesome waiting game, they mentioned my interview group was the second to last group invited.

Did they mention when in December they would tell us final decisions?

 

No, sorry - I didn't ask. They say their decisions come out around 2 weeks after typically - if you got accepted/waitlisted/rejected. So maybe mid-December?
