Received an interview invitation for Sept 29-30 yesterday! Application was completed mid-July. 

If anyone would like to meet up Thursday evening for dinner/drinks/to explore Boston, let me know! :) 

Best of luck to those still waiting to hear.

Hey all! I was invited to the 9/29-9/30 interview but have a conflicting interview. I emailed admissions and the only other date they could offer me was 9/22-9/23, tentatively. So @jmtam I am not sure if these are the last two interview dates. 

To those who received an interview invite for 9/22-9/23, and haven't RSVP'd yet, please do! Much appreciated!!

I submitted my CASPA app and my supplemental the second week of May... so I may have already been overlooked :/

The 22-23rd is just a few weeks away! I wonder if they would even offer interviews to applicants who have to fly out that soon. I haven't been contacted in any way for one. Just my application confirmation email back in May.

They are not on a rolling basis so they are reviewing all the apps at once. So time of submission is irrelevant to them, so keep your head up and stay positive.

The application thread for last year suggests that the last interview date was Nov 6-7 :)

 

EDIT: This was 2 years ago, actually, but even last year's thread suggests Sept is definitely not the only month for interviews.

Little late to the game but I was invited to interview Sept 22-23!

I was wondering if anyone knew anything about the interview format? Closed file or open file interviews?

Last year was the first year they started all interviews in September so I'm not sure if they're sticking to that this year too. I know that a decent amount of us found out rather last minute last year that we were invited for an interview (I was given a week notice) so keep your hopes up everyone and goodluck !

I have my interview this weekend. Do they do interviews at all on the first day Friday or is it just that Saturday?

From what I have read in the email, interviews are conducted on the second day. The first day consists of an overview of the program and discussion with current students.

I sent my northeastern application in on July 16th, on August 11th I was informed about my Sept 15-16 interview. There is apparently going to be 40-50 applicants in each interview session. From the way they made it sound, there will be 3 interview sessions Sept 15-16, 22-23 and 29-30. They said that they should be letting people know by mid- October. They interview around 150 students and are selecting 46 this year. On the Friday of the interview we sat in on a lecture, had an overview of the program, met with first year students and the students who just graduated, had plenty of time to ask questions, and ended with a discussion with a past graduate who is a current PA. The second day we had interviews.

Has anyone received a rejection letter/email? 

Would it be safe to assume if you didn't get an interview by now that you will be rejected?

I didn't get a rejection... but I guess no news is good news? I don't know if they will be offering anymore invites!

Hopefully! I'm in the same boat as you. Nothing yet. Just looking at the previous post stating the 3 interview weekends which one passed and others are closing up fast.

Thanks!! I had a really positive interview experience. Loved that the first day was so thoroughly informative. My interviews were conversational. Fair questions, and seemed like they were interested in getting to know me. The faculty is super nice

Was it a panel interview style? MMI? One on one?

Congrads! Just a question for you: last year, it looks like decisions were all posted in October. Has NEU gone over to rolling admissions now?

So does anyone know if everyone's results get posted in October. Are they contacting only a few people they want right away with acceptance? Because I was part of the the 15th/16th group and I haven't heard anything so I didn't know if that was bad.

They made it sound like some people would get accepted before October but not everyone! I don't think that it is bad that you haven't heard anything yet.

Yes same I almost cried at work haha I am ecstatic. 

And no if you did not hear back yet that does not mean anything bad at all!! They said they'd be sending out a couple acceptances right after and the rest mid October. Don't lose hope!!!!!

So does that mean no more interview invites? Are they just going back to who were previously interviewed?

From what they told us, they are only doing 3 interviews and it's the 15-16 22-23 and 29-30. But don't lose hope like I said anyone might cancel their interview last minute and they'll invite someone else!

Do not get worked up over stats!! Seriously you got an interview which already says a lot about your app already. However, that being said I do not have the best stats but really good patient experience and an interesting life story. 

Overall gpa 3.5

sci gpa 3.3

over 5000 as back office med assistant and now clinical med supervisor for cardio office (started my hours in high school)

Like others have said, the stats are not as important now. If you've received an interview invite then you have the stats to get in, now they want to see if you have the "fit." My gpa's were both less than 3.5 and I have over 6000 hours as an EMT and ER tech with really good recommendations, which probably helped a lot. 

Just go out there and be yourself! Everyone is very nice and they just want to get to know you!

I agree with what everyone is saying. Be yourself. Be confident and honest. They just want to make sure you a fit for what they are looking for.

 

Its a very relaxed and conversation interview.

 

Best of luck!

I interviewed on the 15-16th and I have not heard back yet either. They said it could be as late as mid-October before we hear from them. Like others have said, I do not think that your stats matter as much once you receive an interview. I have similar and if not higher stats than the people who got in, I did not receive an immediate acceptance. They are just looking to see if you are a good fit for the school. In the end whatever happens, all I know is that I was myself during the interview, and I cannot change what was said now. Best of luck to everyone! There is still hope!

Interviewed on September 22-23 and received acceptance phone call from Dr Honda today. Unbelievable. This was my top choice! "I'm shipping up to Boston." WOOOOOOOOO.....btw so I kind of zoned out after he told me I was accepted. My mind was racing. But I believe he said I'll get an email or something? Not sure. Can anyone who was accepted confirm this?
