It was very laid back. 2 one on one interviews and 1 group interview. Yes they didn't start interviews until December last year.

I didn't realize the emotional toll it would take seeing others get interviews, haha. Has anyone received an invite that's out of state?

Same. I'm even more disappointed because I got an interview last cycle and was in the top 10 on the waitlist out of supposedly over 100 people...sigh.

I think you have a great chance, then! They saw something in you before and you can only be better at this point :) Keep the faith, my friend. I'm trying to!

Keep your heads up guys! It's still early in the cycle and most schools won't even be sending out interview invites for another month. I submitted my app on the 4th of June to give y'all a timeline. Stay confident in yourselves... there are a lot of schools to hear back from still!

No not at all! But I will say that comparing myself with others has really negatively affected me in the past... so I don't mind sharing but remember that PA schools can be odd... they will accept the ones you'd least expect and reject the ones you thought had it. And I mean all of this in a positive way too... remember that you are a great applicant, especially if you got interviews last year!

GPA: 3.45, sGPA: 3.28, Experience: officer in a fundraising organization, 2000 HCE as a pharmacy technician, 1200 PCE as an EMT for a 911 ambulance service GRE: Q- 155, V- 149, Shadowing: Around 35 hours with a PA, 60 hours with a physician, Volunteering: ~200 hours in on-campus organizations. Those are the basics of my app but I had some other things that filled in my app as a whole. I also worked extremely hard on my PS

I wonder how many people are being interviewed each day? Does anyone happen to know? It sounds like they're doing a lot in July.

Last year they interviewed about 20-30 per a session. I am unsure if they are planning to do the same thing this time around.

Was your application under review by June 4th? Just curious to see how long it took you to get an interview date.

      Hi! My name is Hillary Simeone and I am a second year Physician Assistant student. I am looking for a preceptor and site to fulfill my elective rotation, seventh rotation of eight total, in the Dallas, Texas area. The dates for this rotation would be: September 13th, 2021 - October 20th, 2021. I have an open mind regarding my elective rotation and am open to new learning experiences. I can provide my CV to any prospective preceptor for consideration. Thank you for taking the time to read this!

      Eager to find a PA/NP/MD provider willing to precept me for a 2 week rotation in April! Ideally a specialty practice but also open to primary care. Thanks!

      Hi everyone, 
      I am starting my clinical year in January 2021, but you can never get too ahead of the game! My SO works from home and would like for me to do my rotations in Texas, in the Austin or Dallas area if possible (I know these areas are saturated). I go to a school that will allow me to do as many rotations out of state as I would like. With COVID I realize that this may be impossible, but does anyone have recommendations on contacting preceptors in the state of Texas so that I can ask about doing rotations there? Any information would be helpful, and once again I do acknowledge that this is a long shot with that state of the world right now! TYIA

      Hello! 
      I recently applied to Texas PA schools in June but I am looking for more ways to gain more shadowing hours for the next application cycle in case I don't get in! How have y'all approached shadowing during COVID? I'm just not sure that PAs would let me shadow them because the COVID risks and social distancing and everything. What experiences have you all had? I am from Texas by the way! COVID precautions are getting pretty relaxed here.
      I have an opportunity to shadow an orthopedic NP. Do you think that PA schools would see that as valuable? 
      Good luck to everyone applying this cycle! 🙂
