Is anyone applying for the duel degree program?

 

 

I am thinking about apply to the dual degree program. I have a friend who mentioned to me that it's a great experience, although hard work.

Yeah I'm sure it's challenging. Do you know if you have to send in two applications, one for the pa program and the MPH program, or will they collaborate your application?

Hey guys - just wanted to chime in.  I applied last cycle and was accepted into the dual program.  If anyone has any questions about the application cycle, feel free to reach out to me.  Last year they didn't extend interview invites until the end of July for the first interview date being in early August.  I applied late in the cycle due to not being able to take the GRE and was still admitted, so don't worry!  Here was my timeline:

 

07/17 CASPA & Supplemental Completed/Submitted

07/26 Campbell Verified (e-mail from Campbell)

09/13 e-mail stating that I was under review by the PA faculty

11/04 interview invite

11/10 interview

11/14 acceptance

 

Yeah I'm sure it's challenging. Do you know if you have to send in two applications, one for the pa program and the MPH program, or will they collaborate your application?

 

Last year you had a choice between two supplements through Campbell, one for PA only and one for PA/MSPH dual program.  It is important to note that (as of last year), the dual program was all-or-nothing.  If you weren't admitted to the dual program, you were not considered for PA only.

I'm a re-applicant this cycle and submitted my application on May 5th. Last year I had applied in August and was recommended to apply earlier in the next cycle. Hopefully that helps this time! I received the email that my application was complete on May 9th but there was no mention of when they would begin to review applications.

When I applied last year I do believe I got notice about the interview invite late July for late August. No need to stress yet. :)

I am an inpatient person so I called the program to make sure that I haven't missed any emails. First wave of interview invites will be sent out 1st or 2nd week of August and first interview date is set for August 25 (I am pretty sure that is the date he said otherwise last week of Augustish. Hope this helps calms some nerves like it did mine!

About 32 get invited per interview day. It started in the day. We were broken up into groups of 8 at first and 1 group went to do interviews, 1 took a tour of the building, 1 sat with financial aid, and I am blanking on the other step. Interviews were 4 went into a group interview, then the other 4 did individuals. They were either 2 on 1 or 1on 1. Then at the end of the day we had Q and A with current students. Very welcoming from everyone. LOVED the faculty, they really made you know they care about everyone in their program.

So no MMI format?

Nope. You had a group interview, and your regular interview. They could change the process though, but last year no MMI.

Hi everyone!

I have applied for this cycle, as well. I have had some correspondence back and forth regarding my prerequisites, as I took one course this summer, and I'm completing my last prerequisite this fall. After that, I was told that I had everything I needed, and subsequently got an email that stated my file was complete. 

How many of you took the recommended genetics course? I am on the waitlist for genetics at NC State. I'm hoping it makes me more competitive, but I'm curious of how big of an impact it has on their decision to extend an invitation for an interview. 

I am nervous, excited, and hopeful. I applied only to local schools, since my husband works locally. I was so impressed by the program and facilities at the open house. I am really hoping (like everyone here) to be invited to interview in the near future and keep moving forward!

In my opinion, it will only help you. I took genetics last year and learned a lot from it. Since they list it as "recommended," it's just a suggestion by them to boost your application and science foundation for year 1.

I agree with the poster above. It's not a required course so it won't count against you if you don't take it.

I also took bacterial genetics and medical genetics and think they were very helpful and interesting.

      Didn't see a thread for the current application cycle. Please post link if there is already a topic. 
      I got an email on July 6th that my application has been received and was given an application status link. Has anyone gotten an interview?

      I am looking to shadow in the Raleigh Durham area ; been trying to send messages via linkedIn to multiple places, but to no avail. Does anyone on here know someone who is accepting pre-pa shadowing? Being a PT I would love to follow someone in Ortho or Pain Management, but I am happy to shadow any specialty ; there is something to learn in all settings!

      Hello!
       
      Im a pre-PA student in North Carolina. Does anyone know of any PA shadowing opportunities in the Charlotte area?
       
      Thank you!

      Recent applicant accepted to multiple NC schools. Wondering if it is worthwhile to attend some of the private, high-ranked schools or if it makes more sense to favor in-state tuition, especially with sights set on primary care? 
      Schools I applied to: Duke, Wake, Campbell, UNC, ECU
      Would appreciate insight into any of the above programs, and whether the private schools really do give you a leg up!
      Thank you!
