Applied beginning of June, verified by Albany about a week later, and received an interview invite mid-June for July 19th. I went to an information session in the spring and really liked the vibe of the program. Albany is definitely a top tier program that flies under the radar.

The program is in an city with lots of things to do but still has a small town feel. If you haven't yet I would definitely walk around. Washington Park was beautiful and there is a wide variety of restaurants to eat at. The interview was much more relaxed than I was expecting, which I think says a lot about the faulty and the program itself. That gave me a good feeling about the program. They also let you know quickly about your status. They are on top of their game lol. Got an email about just a few hours after the interview that I was accepted :)

Same here! I was accepted while checking in at Albany airport only 2 hours after the interview day was over!! The interview day lasted from 8am-1:30pm. It didn't feel real until I got a hard letter in the mail a couple days later! I'll be putting a seat deposit in. I really liked the program too, but of course waiting to hear from other programs before I can 100% say if I'll be at Albany in January. Either way, I'm happy! Any readers currently at AMC and have any tips/insights/pros and cons of the program?

Do you think that there are any other interviews coming out? I was verified and complete a few weeks ago but still have not heard anything. A little worried about that.

They run their interviews up until December, so they are definitely still interviewing applicants. I'm not exactly sure how they process applications, so I would wait a little while longer to hear back.

What did the interview process entail? I'm interviewing July 19th! Is there an essay portion, group interviews, 1-on-1, etc.?

Congrats on getting an interview! It was very laid back. When I interviewed I met with a lot of the faculty (who are all very nice and friendly btw!), learned about the details of the program, had lunch with some of the students, and went on a student-led campus tour. The main interview was 2 separate 1-on-1 interviews with the faculty, about 10-15min each. The atmosphere was very relaxing for an interview and the faculty made it seem like it was more of just a conversation and getting-to-know-you thing instead of being interrogative. None of the questions really threw me off. The questions were very standard; nothing to try and trick you. Make sure you know the details of your application and make a list of what you want them to know about you that sets you apart from other candidates and what you can bring to the program and the profession.

How long after you got the "under review" email until you got the call for the interview?

For me I believe it was about 3 weeks after I finished the CASPA and secondary applications.

Thanks for all of the info, and I agree, it was very laid back and relaxed!

Interviewed yesterday and I received an email at today saying that I am accepted!!! Albany seems like a very solid school, especially after yesterday's presentations, so I'm honestly in shock that they would want me haha. Best of luck to everyone else!

Albany is a solid school and the fact you were accepted means you were a very solid applicant. Congrats!

      I am sure this has been asked before, if so, please forward it to me. But when writing out the description and responsibilities of your various experiences, should the format be a list/bullet point or more of a thoughtful written out paragraph? 
      What I have so far (in an excel sheet), is a list of my responsibilities with a small blurb of something I learned during that experience. 
      Here is an example of one of my work experiences:
      Active duty Navy, worked in hospitals on land and sea             Prepared operating room for surgery                 In charge of setting up sterile supplies                 Assisted the nurse and/or PA in positioning the patient on the operating table         Prepped the patient by shaving, washing, and disinfecting the surgical site         Applied sterile surgical drapes on the patient                Passed surgical instruments to the physician                Assisted the physician during the surgery                 Sutured incision site                   Applied wound dressings                   Learned that each member of the operating room team, regardless of education level, plays a vital role in the patient's safety  
      Any advice/experience is much appreciated

      So I finally got a job at my dream hospital!! I am currently working there as a Patient Care Technician/ PCT. However, I will be leaving for PA school next year. I really want to return to this hospital and work as a PA! The problem is that getting a job at my hospital is super competitive. Is there a way for me to ensure/ increase my chances of getting a PA job in this facility in the future?
       
      (Also, what do you guys think of requesting a absense of leave instead of quitting? Can I be able to come back to the hospital to pursue a higher position?)

      Thanks in advance!

      I'm looking for PA shadowing opportunities in Dallas, Texas. I'm a 26-year-old Bachelors of Science in Biology graduate from the University of North Texas at Dallas pursuing a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies. I moved to Dallas when I was 15 years old from Tampico, Tamaulipas, Mexico and would like to do something with my life and what a beautiful thing to help people who need it most.
       
      Thank you in advance.
