I received an email saying that my application is currently under review a few weeks ago. Since then, I haven't heard back. 

 

 

I received the same email on Aug 17th, and since then nothing from them :(. I'm assuming they are going to wait until the new year before any communication goes out since their deadline is March. Still stressful not hearing anything though.....

Has anybody heard back from this school?

I actually just received an email today from them. They were asking for more information about some of my courses. It looks like they are trying to select applicants for future interviews, which seems like it might be soon.

I received something similar but they asked about submitting a course description to verify that those courses had a lab component with it.

 

Really having my fingers crossed for this program.

If they are asking for your course description they are processing you for an interview.   That's what they did with me.

For those who received interviews, have you heard back confirming your interview? I submitted my preference yesterday and have yet to hear back.

Interviewing 12/16, went to the information session this week. The class size will be 24 ppl, expecting to interview around 100-125. They said they'll let us know within about a week of the interview if we are accepted, and it's $1k to hold your spot. 

 

I live about 40 minutes away (Port Costa), but if anyone is coming from out of town and needs a couch to crash on for the 12/16 interview, and doesn't mind small house/3 dogs/3.5 year old child then message me! Carpooling would be fun!

Thank you!  My advice is to be yourself but be professional! It's not a stressful interview, and is very fair.   They really seem to care about the whole person. Best of luck to you all!

After submitting CASPA, I got an email a couple months later asking to send them verification of a lab component for some of the courses and I received an interview invite shortly after.

I got the email asking me to verify that my science classes had labs a few days after I submitted but I haven't heard from them since then. :(

I thought Ana said we would here back in 2-3 weeks because 1 week was too short for the first interview group so they wanted more time to decide. I'm just not going to have my hopes up to hear back this week haha.

Best of luck to everyone else!

Congratulations! Was that invitation by email or phone call? And can you share what the available dates were? Thanks!

Anyone know of an inexpensive place to stay nearby?

 

Also, anymore insight on the interview aside from "Be yourself". Group, one on one, standard or more obscure questions?

Motel 6 or travel lodge ( 2 miles away) booked from Priceline. Very straight forward interview, they aren't there to trick you they just want an accurate picture of who you are. Very welcoming staff and well organized.

With great reluctance, I surrendered my seat today. I know this will turn out to be a blessing for someone else

I interviewed with the 1/20 group and I am honored to say that I have been accepted for the inaugural class!! I'm excited beyond words and to those who haven't gotten into a program... Don't give up hope!! This is my second go around for getting in PA school so just be persistent and it will pay off!!

For those who had already interviewed:

I read that there is an essay component during the interview to assess your desire to become a PA. Was there a time limit and did you type this essay up or was it a pen and paper kind of deal. 

 

Thanks much :)
