For those who got invites, when did you submit?

 

And congrats!!!

so basically. you application had to be completed, submitted, and verified by caspa on oct 1st. Oct 1st was the deadline. anything after that you wouldnt be considered for this cycle. i have been stress because i haven't received anything either. So,  I called Lisa today. She said they are not done sending out invited for interviews. So people who haven't received an invite still has a chance.

Has anyone made travel arrangements yet? I am coming in from NYC and debating whether to stay in Enfield, CT or Springfield, MA. Also, maybe we can coordinate sharing a taxi to the interview to save somewhere? PM me if you're interested. Time is getting close and I am a bit nervous. Does anyone know how many interviewees we have coming in? Or how many interview dates they are setting?

I'm from the area. Due to highway exits being closed I wouldnt stay in downtown springfield (sheraton and Marriot... Columbus ave). I'd say the closet hotels are in Enfield with less traffic to Bay Path, there are a few. Next best bet, there area bunch of hotels on Riverdale Rd in West Springfield. There may be a bit of traffic on the way to Bay Path but there are a lot of options.

i totally agree. im from the area. the high is can be a nightmare especially during rush hour time with all the construction. if you want to stay in downtown springfield stay more so at the hilton garden or hampton inn(this is a new hotel). or enfield. All those locations are under 5-8 mintues from Bay PAth.

Hi!! So they received over 1,100 applications this year and they selected 100 to interview. Of the 100, 30 get selected. There are two sessions on November 13th (my birthday, an interview was such a great gift!) there's a morning session and an afternoon session then the committee meets after to go over everyone! Hope this helps! Acceptance letters should be sent out 3-4 weeks post interview.

They have already confirmed invites? So probably best to assume if we haven''t heard its a no go?

I just cancelled my interview and withdrew my application as I decided to go with a different program. Goodluck to everyone else!

Best of luck with the PA program you chose!

 

Did you have your Bay Path interview at all or were you scheduled with the few who were unable to make the original date?

      Hi!
      My name is Shelby, I am a medical assistant at a private orthopedic practice in San Mateo, CA. I have acquired over 3,000 hours of patient care experience and healthcare experience in this position. Our office is currently looking for pre-PA students to fill two available staff positions. The first is a MA/CNA position. The second is an administrative assistant position, which has the potential to move up into a MA/CNA role. Certification (CNA, MA) and experience is preferred for both positions, but not required. 
      As a small practice, we have a great team approach to patient care. You will have the opportunity to work closely with the PA and orthopedic surgeon. Many job duties allow you to be present in the room during patient visits so you can become familiar with the PA scope of practice. Additionally, both the orthopedic surgeon and PA are excellent mentors and educators. If you are eager to learn more about orthopedics and medicine in general, they are always willing to share their expertise. 
      If you live in the Bay Area or are looking to move to the Bay Area, this is a great opportunity to prepare you for PA school. Below is the job listing for both positions. 
      https://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/hea/d/san-mateo-medical-assistant-cna-and/7185888927.html
      If you are interested, you can respond to the listing or email your cover letter and resume to ma2@oiba.us .  
      Thanks!
      Shelby

      I just recently decided to go to PA school and am trying to get PCE hours but also be employed. Right now, I'm looking into whether it would be better to be an MA or EMT-B, but it seems like getting the MA cert would be faster, with online classes and easier accessibility. After looking through some forums, many have said that being EMT-B would be better, but the classes for these take longer and have less availability (if you know a good online program please tell me). 
      Would it be a good idea to just start the MA class (SFSU MA program that also has an externship which I am also worried about, as many have said that it's harder to be employed with a NHA CCMA cert) and then also take the EMT-B course later on to do both?
      Is it possible to do both jobs?

      Hello everyone! 
      My name is Yanka, I am a rising junior, and I recently decided to pursue a career as a PA-C. I chose this career path because I can study for an additional two years and get out into the real world to practice, I also prefer to study the Medical Model, and the work/life balance is very ideal because I love spending time with my family. I was just wondering if there are any opportunities for online shadowing, or any PA-C’s in Massachusetts or Rhode Island offering opportunities to shadow. Please let me know. 
       
      Stay safe!
      Yanka.

      Hello! 
      I graduated from MSU with a Human Biology Major in Winter 2015.
      It has been about 3 years since i have graduated. I studied the MCAT and took the test once and did not apply to any med school because of my MCAT score and GPA.
      i have a GPA 3.0 and not sure about my science gpa about 2.7-2.9 
      I just got married this summer and have been rethinking about med school and wanted to go to PA school instead 
      It seems as competitive as med school but it is only 2 years of school. 
      I don't have ANY direct paid health care experience only volunteering and haven't taken the GRE yet 
      I am 25 years old and just need some help/guidance on the path. 
      so my questions are:
      1.) Should i go to graduate school for 2 years and get good grades to make up for my low GPA
      2.) Should i just get as much PCE as i can? and then apply ? 
      if so, which is better? CNA, MA, paramedic, EMT ? 
      3.) Lastly, should get certified to work as a CNA, MA, paramedic or EMT first, and then work while i go to grad school so i can get PCE and boost my GPA? 
       
      i don't know where to start because I'm trying to find the most affordable and less time consuming way to be competitive to get into PA school 😞 
       
      Thank you

      Hey everyone,
       
      I currently work as a Medical Laboratory Scientist  in the hematology department at a 900+ bed hospital. I don’t interact directly with patients but I do tons of work for patients while utilizing clinical knowledge. I feel this is a great pre-PA job but I understand admission committees might not think the same way. 
       
      My question is should I quit my job and work as an EMT or MA? It would be hard to walk away from a 60k salary but I’m willing to make the sacrifice if necessary. 
       
      Thanks in advance.
