PENNSYLVANIA: TEMPLE (LKSOM) 2017-2018

Recommended Posts

Is there anyone that has interviewed that can give insight on the clinical skills activity? the email states that we're not required to diagnose and things like that. so I'm confused on what they're looking for. Thanks in advance!

@jasandler327 are you going to attend?! 

@longhornalum my total GRÉ was 310. 93rd percentile verbal 29th percentile quant because I’m shit at timed math exams despite a tutor and 96th percentile writing. (Hey, I’m a former journalist what can I say?) I’m pretty sure Temple interviews into January. They have interviews typically once or twice a month.

@ttran1021 really you’re just asking questions similar to how you’d take a patient history. Take a look at the OPQRST method and go from there. You might find yourself asking kind of redundant questions cuz five mins is surprisingly long. Also if they give you any kind of personal info (kids, life stuff) capitalize on I‎t and ask about I‎t. Really they’re just looking to see if you can sit in a room with a complete stranger and get a history without sounding like a robot. Really just be as authentic as possible when interviewing. You know what you’re about and why you want to be where you are you just have to show them. :)

@martink741 thanks for the reply! I did so bad on the GRE :( 142 verbal and 145 quant and 4.0 (65%) writing. My gpa is 3.5. I have over 3500 hours of volunteering, over 2500 MA health care experience and 125 shadowing hours and have yet to hear back :/

@longhornalum to be honest your other stats are dope. I wouldn’t place too much faith in GRE scores. Like I wouldn’t say it’s a big old weakness in your app because it’s not. You have very solid everything else. When did you apply? And have you been sending them patient care hours updates?

Does anyone know if there are any more interview slots in December. I was invited for the January 22nd interview but have been interviewing at other programs this past week and I would love to get all of my responses around the same time.

I don't think so. When I asked, Jan 22 is next and last interview.

Is too late to apply to Temple now? Also my GRE scores are weak, do people still get in with weak GRE scores for this school?

2. Did people hear from the dec 4 interview?

@bhigg I heard back from Dec 4 interview and yes you get an email if you are waitlisted or accepted. I am not sure if you get one if you are declined?

      HI! I am a current student looking to gain clinical experience as a medical scribe but am not sure where to start! I have tried to do my own research but every site I find seems to offer jobs once I am certified ( which I am not) . I want to make sure I take the correct steps and having someone I could come to with questions would be extremely helpful! thanks in advance !

      Hello, I graduated last year with a 2.6 GPA and my science GPA is 2.4. I have two D's, I am retaking one of those two D at a community college ( organic chemistry) the other D is in ecology in which I may not retake tbh because I didn't enjoyed the class. I registered for organic chemistry 2 to help my Sgpa but my dilemma is this.... my financial situation is starting to stress me out. I cant afford to take hard core science classes ( like I originally planned) in a degree that doesn't lead to a guaranteed career (biotechnology). so I thought of either medical laboratory technician or lpn.  I thought of these because #1 cheaper and faster option, #2 mlt has always sparked my interest and #3 I'm a cna ( almost 4 years) and I work closely with a lpn.  the lpn option I'm looking at is a certificate option because is only one year. my whole goal in this is to help my GPA and also have a career. I don't mind continuing to build my PA  application after this but I wanna make sure if doing any of these route will help me and not become a waste of time. 
      if you guys have any other suggestions please let me know. the biotechnology degree I can finish it in a year but what if after that I'm still not a strong applicant? then I'm stuck with another degree... no career 
      I don't care how long it takes to become a PA! I'm 24 years old and I already have a lot of financial baggage. I want to make a smart decision

      Hello,
      I am currently struggling to decide which field I want to pursue ( Master's in Health Administration  vs Physician Assistant). I want to interact with patients but I also want to focus on managing hospitals and program implementation. Do you guys have any suggestions on what I can do that could expose my to both of my interests or if one has a higher job demand than the other? Any feedback is appreciated!

      HI Folks,
      I am currently in the second year of my contract, i have a bachelors degree in engineering but thats from asia.
      I am an active duty army 68W medic currently working at an army hospital.
      Question i have is that, i was going through lots of PA schools everywhere they say that the degree should be from an university in USA.
      So is it not possible to get into any of the PA programs when i get out of military in couple of years without a bachelors  degree from america?
      What can i do to improve my chances to get into any of the PA programs?
      I checked these schools as a sample.
      University of Iowa
      University of Colorado
      To be honest i dont care about the location once i get out, but wanted to know whats the way forward ?

      Hey all,
      I am currently a 1st year graduate student for athletic training. I am looking into become a PA. Looking to withdraw from my program to pursue PA prerequisites but not sure if this was a good idea. Or if I should complete my program then complete prerequisites. Thanks!
