Just got accepted but will be giving up my spot for another program! Hope it helps someone! :)

I changed mine a little bit, but essentially mine was the same. I was invited to interview again, so take that for what it's worth. 

To anyone who gets accepted today-Congratulations.   You deserve it, and it was your hard work and perseverance that got you accepted to this great school. 

congrats!! When did you submit your caspa? Mine just got verified today! I'm so nervous!!

Congratulations! I am so excited to meet you!!!

 

And to answer your question- I know last year some people were informed they did not receive an interview invitation pretty early.

Thank you! Do you have any advice for the interviews?

Just know that once you are invited for an interview, the program won't focus on grades or anything like that at the interview. It means we believe and know you are qualified! Once you get here, just make sure you focus on letting your personality shine :) We just want to get to know you! 

  • I stayed at Four Points Sheraton (last year UC was able to get a discounted rate for interview candidates. Let me ask about that!) It was great because there was a free shuttle that took me from and to the airport as well as school.
  • Try your best not to stress out and relax. That way the program can see how you are as a person. I remember last year I met up with a couple interview candidates before my interview and it was so nice to decompress. No one will understand your struggles and dreams the way they will! 
  • Ask as many questions as you want. You're interviewing us just as much as we are interviewing you! We don't mind answering anything. 

Feel free to message me if you have any other questions!

Thanks for the advice! I received an email today that stated that there was a reduced rate for the Four Point hotel!

Thanks for the information! Are there any specific questions we should prepare for with the interviews? What do the mini interviews consist of?

 

 

Can't tell you anything specifically ;) Just know there shouldn't be any curve balls. Prepare as you would for any interview. Know your attributes well enough to talk about yourself and your experiences. The MMI's will be pretty standard as well. When I interviewed, I looked up examples of MMI scenarios/questions just so I could get an idea of what it would be like. Pam will tell you more the day before! She gives some helpful tips and explains more on what to expect. Wish I could tell you more, but I'm not sure how much I'm allowed to share! You can always send an email to Pam or give her a call. She is so kind and very helpful.

Just wanted to let everyone know the program has continued "full" accreditation and that the class of 2017 just took their PANCE and as of right now 24/24 have passed! (Just waiting for 2 more to take their boards.) A 100% pass rate, just like the year before that!

      Hi everyone!
      I am currently a PA-S1 in my second semester, starting clinical rotations in the fall. My program offers 8 core rotations: EM, Family med, Internal med, surgery, Peds, OB/GYN, Geriatric meds, and behavioral health with only one elective. Popular electives include: any surgery subspecialty (cardiothoracic surgery, neurosurgery, etc.), cardiology, psychiatry, orthopedics... and more.
      I was wondering if anyone had advice on picking an elective since there are many of these sub specialties I would love to gain experience in! if you faced a similar scenario, what helped you with making this decision, or does any one have insight on what may be best for post-grad life? 
      Thanks!

      Hi everyone.  Thought I'd start the discussion for the 2020-2021 application cycle.  Good luck!

      Hi, I was looking around on google and couldn’t find any direct information, but I was curious if anyone has a comprehensive list of schools that have waived the GRE due to the current situation afflicting our nation? Any information would be great. Thanks!

      I took Organic chemistry last semester and got a C-, so now my science GPA is ruined.
      Are there any schools that don't require Ochem as a pre-req?
