To those who have interviewed: can we bring a legal pad with notes on it? With Bullet points? 

I brought my portfolio during the interview

Was it your resume? What all did you have in it?

Yes, my portfolio had one in it. Also recommend bringing a copy of your resume. They like to reference your file and ask questions based on it.

Dont lose hope! I called a few days back and they told me they were still interviewing in December, so the class is definitely not full yet. Best of luck!

I received my acceptance letter!!!! Super excited! I was feeling a down in the dumps about not hearing back but keep your head high and stay POSITIVE, there are still spots.

For reference, I interviewed on Nov 1st and received the letter yesterday around mid-day.

Anyone else notice all who have been accepted have been from October 16th and November 1st interview dates? Has anyone been accepted that interviewed on other dates besides these two dates?

I’m sorry I just meant that those who have been accepted stated they interviewed on either October 16th or November 1st. I went back and looked at all the posts and was wondering if anyone has been accepted from other dates than those two.

I interviewed on Nov 14 and received an acceptance email yesterday Nov 20. 

For those who have yet to be interviewed, there’s no need to stress or be nervous.  Like others have mentioned, the interview is very laid back with 2 faculty members.  My interview was very short...about 10 minutes.

A few of the questions I was asked: Describe the relationship between a PA and a physician.  Tell me about yourself.  Pros and cons of the PA profession. Why do you want to be a PA? What other schools did you apply to? Do you have any questions for us?   

Good luck everyone!

I think those of us who have already interviewed are all anxiously waiting. I have great stats and have yet to hear anything since interviewing on the 16th of October. 

Either way. I hope everyone enjoys the holiday with friends and family!!

Interviewed the 15th and still waiting! Checking my email probably 30+ times a day lol.

Seems strange that applicants that interviewed mid October are still waiting while applicants who interviewed mid November are hearing back several days afterwards.

I suppose they organize applicants into tiers - 'really want', 'want', 'kinda want', 'meh', 'bloop'. As more spots fill up they pull from different tiers. 

Anyway, best of luck to everyone!

Yeah my interview was almost an hour long, and it was held on the 16th of October. I've yet to hear anything from the program. Placing your fate in the hands of someone else is incredibly difficult.

I knew what you meant. I was just stating that not everybody who interviewed on those 2 dates have heard back

I sent that email right away. Just haven't heard anything back since they probably will not see the email until Monday (today).

Did you ever hear anything back? I sent my acceptance response but no reply.. I realize there is nothing for them to say back but some acknowledgement would put me at ease lol

Yes I sent my reply Saturday morning and did get a reply on Monday morning, I am sure they are not working on the weekends so I would not expect a reply until Monday, especially with the holiday weekend. All they replied was "congratulations." I have not heard anything since November 7th.
