AT Still 2017-2018 Applicants


Recommended Posts

I applied 8/23 and submitted my supplemental about 3 days later.  I still have not received an interview acceptance or declination so I guess I should still have hope... especially since the deadline for apps is Nov 1.


I'm in the same boat as you! Praying for some good news!

Hi guys,

Current PA-S1 and ambassador here. I was at the last interview session with some of you, I'm sure. If anyone has specific questions, feel free to DM me or any of the other current students posting on the forum. We would be happy to assist you!

Also, FYI - our school hosts a school tour every Friday at noon if anyone wants to come and check it out.

Hello,

To applicants who were accepted, I wanted to ask what type of community service hours and setting did you completed your hours in? I did not get accepted this year and the feedback was to get community service hours with the "under served communities". The application website only said community service hours and did not specify this detail. I will re-apply again next year and need to improve this aspect. If you can please share I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you!

I did a couple mission trips in Mexico (not medical), some community outreach projects through my undergraduate university, volunteered through my church and volunteered at a free clinic downtown.

Best of luck!

I also volunteered at a nonprofit free clinic and I specified that my PCE was downtown which involved taking care of the underserved. We work with a lot of homeless, immigrants, and disabled patients at the hospital in which I work and my experience has inspired me to continue working with underserved populations because I feel that I can give back to my community by providing quality care to those who often do not receive the healthcare they need. Every city has their own clinics that are looking for healthcare workers so definitely try to get involved and at the same time I'm sure you will find inspiration!

You don't have to go overseas to work with underserved populations. You could find soup kitchens, womens battered shelters, free community clinics in your area and ask to volunteer with them. They are normally OVER joyed to have dedicated, repeat volunteers come out and help.

When you say the feedback you had received, did you personally give the admission office a call or email someone?

eamaru16  - I volunteered at a batter women shelter for 8 years. Which is why I am am not sure what defines a "under served" because I thought it was under served, but that was the feedback I received. Community service should be more towards the under served. I also worked with the immigrant population for over ten years.  Thank you for the list of ideas though.

Yes, I received an email from a staff member. It said specifically that the community service hours has to be with the under served. The definition of this I am confused about, because I did my hours at a domestic women shelter where women and their kids are living. I also did a myriad of other community service projects working with immigrants, exchanges students (who are from third world countries and here on a scholarship), the elderly and the food shelter work.

Hi! I've been volunteering at a number of free clinics for people without health insurance here in phx and Tucson! They're very easy to find online! You can usually get patient care hours as well! Message me if you have any questions!

Thank you so much for clarifying! I didn't receive any feedback whatsoever after my rejection email. I definitely will contact admissions after a couple of months when things settle down and they're ""less"" busy to see if I could get ANY feedback incase I apply again next year !

Did you email them back wondering about how your community service didn't fall into the category of working with the underserved? Because just reading your explanation, you DEFINITELY fulfilled that requirement.
