Best of luck!!

According to the website, the interviews may be "multiple mini interviews or panel interview". Hoping the questions won't be too tough. What day are you all interviewing? Mine is scheduled for August 30 at 8am.

Be ready for one-on-one interviews with faculty and mini-panel interviews with current students/alumni. Questions vary from professional (why do you want to be a PA? how did you hear about this program? what is the history of the PA profession?) as well as random (hobbies? what are your weaknesses/strengths? if you had a superpower, what would it be?)! It's very conversational!  We want to see genuine applicants that'll fit well with the atmosphere here. The environment here is very relaxed so just be yourself and have fun with it! Looking forward to meeting you!

No problem! Also a little insight, photos will be taken just so that we can match a face to your name so look presentable (not that you need me to tell you that).  Anyone interviewing this Thursday morning or Friday afternoon, I'll be in charge of taking photos so don't be shy and say hey!

Hello!

 

I interviewed last week. The staff was very welcoming and the current first year students were very fun and encouraging! Good luck to anyone else who is interviewing tomorrow! I heard tomorrow is the last day of interviews. 

 

Best of luck to everyone!

I received a letter in the mail. I'm sure they are in the process of sending them!

How much time did they give you to decide if you will accept them?

10 days from when they mailed the letter. So I ended up having to mail the acceptance letter and deposit to them within 2 days. Very quick.

      Hey Guys, my name is Benjamin. I work in Neurosurgery. I’m a PA-C. I received over 25 interviews when I was applying to schools. If you are getting interviews but not acceptances I would love to help. Check out www.physicianassistantschooladvice.org it lays out some good ideas to help get you that edge. 
      cheers,
      Benjamin

      I am looking for online or in person (not hopeful for this at the moment) shadowing opportunities in the La Crosse area. Anywhere in Wisconsin would be amazing as well.

      Hello everyone, 
      starting a thread for the new Canisius College PA program. I am currently applying to the program and wondering if anyone has heard about the program overall, or professors/admin. Anyone else applying and nervous about the provisional accreditation? Hoping this program turns out well! Starts January 2021.

      Hi! I was recently accepted into a program that I didn't think I would be too fond of, but I ended up falling in love with the program! I am interviewing at my original top choice on the 13th, and I have been having a hard time deciding what school I would choose if I were to get in to this other program as well. I would love to hear what current students think. School A (the one I have already been accepted to) is a 1 hour commute, ( I can't afford to move or get an apartment, I am lucky enough to live with my boyfriend who pays the mortgage). This is the biggest downside to this school. I don't know how commuting an hour both ways, 5 days a week, will work with the course load. School B is a 30 minute commute. School A is also about $15,000 more expensive. The reason I justify price is that this program is 28 months, which is 4 months longer than school B (where I am interviewing on the 13th). I love that the clinical rotations are 5 weeks, instead of 4 at school B. There are also 2 elective clinical sites and school A, as opposed to only 1 at school B. They are both very new programs so they're pretty comparable when it comes to everything else that I've looked into!
       
      So my questions are:
      1. If you have a long commute to your PA program, do you regret it/how do you like it?
      2. Will 1 additional week in each clinical site and 1 additional elective make a difference/ is it worth the $15,000 additional?
      3. Will I get to the 24 month point at school A and wish that I went to school B so that I could be finished already?
      Thank you so much for any input you all can provide!!

      I've been genuinely curious about this, what's the latest time an applicant has received an interview invite? I feel a little crazy refreshing my emails so late at night but I don't want to miss any. Also, has anyone received an invite over the weekend before? My anxiety has me checking all day every day.
