Hello there! I submitted my secondary at clarkson two weeks ago and they already verified my application within a week of me submitting it for the January 2018 class. So now each member of the admission committee is looking at my application. Good luck to everyone that is applying!

Congrats to all who already received interviews!

Hi guys,

 

Has anyone else received an e-mail stating that their application is " on hold"  and what does that even pertain to? What is the likelihood of being granted an interview??

 

Congrats to those who have received an interview. Cheers!

Hi!

 

I had applied to Clarkson last cycle and received the "application on hold" email and heard from them months later to come in for an interview. What I basically got from that is that if someone decides not to go in for the interview then they pull from the on hold list. It's different for everyone I guess but I think I was one of the few from my interview group that had their application placed on hold. So keep your fingers crossed! I heard from them in April for a June interview (got waitlisted hence why I'm applying again.)

My application was put "on hold" as well. Mrs. Roberts told me that Clarkson will make an final decision to give me a interview or not by January. Hopefully we both will receive an invitation!

Hi gabco25! When you apply last year how long did you have to wait for them to grant you an interview? I am a first time applicant and Mrs. Roberts put my application on hold a month ago. Thanks and I hope you get an interview again this cycle!

Hi there! 

 

I was told in January that I was placed on the hold list and then contacted in mid April for an interview in June.

That's great. I took the March 4 date because I'm flying in. I'm not too certain how the interviews are. I know the whole process takes a few hours and we get a tour of the facility but aside from that I'm not exactly sure.

How many people recieve a supplemntal application? Does it mean anything or just that you met all the requirements?

According to someone I had spoken with in admissions back in September, they only invite something like 2/3 of the applicants to fill out a supplemental application or something like that. My percentage may be off because that conversation was a few months ago but not everyone who applies receive an invite to do the supplemental.

I submitted my supplemental on Friday, they received it Monday, and stated that I should know in 60 days whether an interview will be requested, the email said each member of the faculty will be reviewing my application. 

 

 

Good luck to everyone!!!!!!!! I really hope I get an interview.

Submitted my application! Crossing my fingers. I feel like Clarkson is the perfect match for me. I had an interview at Upstate and unfortunately didn't end up making the cut. Good luck to everyone applying. My advice to you is be yourself :)

Submitted my application! Does anyone know how they feel about out of state applicants?

I don't think it really matters. I'm from California and they offered me an interview. To be honest this is one of my top choices so I was really nervous that I wouldn't get an interview because I was from California.

Were there earlier dates that you could choose from for the interviews?

 

 

The only dates listed for me were June 2nd or June 3rd. 

 

but I'm not sure if that;s the "end of interview" dates, or if that's just what they hold available that round they just sent out for invites.

For people flying in to interview, what airport are you flying in from? I am from Minnesota, so it will be a hike! 

 

I am flying into Ottawa.  Its like a 2-2:30 hour drive into Potsdam. If you have a passport thats probably your best bet.  I found the fighters were more reasonable flying into Ottawa versus any other airport but it may be different for you flying from Minnesota.  Good luck.

18 people at each interview for a total of 72 interviewees down from 1900 applicants. My only advice is to do the normal interview prep and you'll be fine. The interviewers are all very nice and conversational so just try to be calm, consider the question, and answer thoughtfully. Good luck!

Hi all!

 

I too interviewed this past Friday March 3rd.  I got an acceptance call Saturday March 4th as well!! So excited to meet my classmates! I did want to share my insight for the people interviewing in June!  First try to relax, yes the process is long but I had so much fun! The students and faculty are so welcoming.  The faculty really wants to get to know you as a person and see if you fit with the Clarkson program.  Practice normal interview questions and really know why you want to be at Clarkson, not generally but specifically.  What makes their program stand out to you and how will it help you be the PA you want to become.  Be social and engage with everyone, be someone who they want at their program.  Everyone will have awesome experience and be intelligent.  What makes you unique and how can you contribute to their program! It was such an awesome experience and I was so happy to be apart of it, they made me feel welcome and at home.  Good luck to everyone interviewing in June! So excited to meet the rest of my class!

Congratulations to you as well!!!!!

That is so exciting, and makes me super excited for June, though I wish it was a little sooner than June so I can get rid of my nerves!

I have just such a good feeling with Clarkson, from everything I have read about the program, and the school, and city of Potsdam itself. 

 

I hope come June, I will be able to write the same as you did!
