There's 3 individual interviews & 1 group interview. I was never asked medical scenario questions. A lot of personal and experience questions. I think a few people were asked scenario questions in the group interviews, but I didn't have one.

I had an interview last week, and they said we should be expecting a call within the next 2 weeks if we got accepted (because we were the last round of interviews). I have not received a call yet, and my application still says ready for review, any idea on when I could be expecting some news? Hoping for a Christmas miracle haha

Hey everyone. I talked to a member of the faculty today who told me that interviews are completely done. They interviewed a total of 112 people, and the class is now full. So everybody should hear some kind of news very soon!! Can't wait to meet the rest of our class! Looking forward to May. Happy Holidays, y'all!

Has anyone from the last/second to last interview group heard anything? or seen a change to their online status? 

I haven't heard anything (via phone or mail) and there has been no change to my online status. Trying to remain optimistic!

I received my letter today saying I was waitlisted, not abandoning hope yet! ☺️

 

Just curious, did you see a change in your status online before you received your letter?

Yes, a week after our interview it changed from "Ready to review" to "Decision made by Admissions Committee; notification is by mail." It took another two weeks to receive the letter.

As of now, I think the class is still full. We start in May though, so anything can change between then. We had a girl get pulled form waitlist the week before we started. Stay positive!!

Pre-PA, have a question for you all who applied to Augusta's program.

I am confused about the prerequisites.

On the page for prospective students it shows mandatory course prereqs: the standard bio, chem, A&P , etc. However there is another column for prerequisites with subheadings of Essential Skills  (English I, II), Professional Skills (Speech, Ethics, Economics, etc), humanities, social sciences, guided electives. 

For undergrad I attended a liberal arts college with no core curriculum and I am confused about what courses I have count. Augusta's prereqs seem to be extremely extensive, whereas other programs just require the standard plus a few. 

 

I emailed admissions and they told me "The best way to determine which credits you have is to apply to the program and send us your official transcripts. We will then complete a transfer evaluation and send you that document via mail so you know what you must take and what you have already satisfied."

but it doesn't make sense--why would i apply and waste time and money on a cycle when I am not even sure if i have all the prereqs? They also told me to look at the online Transfer Equivalency Guide, but my college isn't on there.

I told them this and all they said was "I encourage you to work with your current academic advisor to determine transfer credits. Unfortunately, we cannot give you any type of preliminary credit evaluation."

How did you guys figure out prereqs for Augusta?

Have you received any answer on this? Because i am in the same boat trying to figuer out if i need to take Biology I and II or if they will accept my genetics and biochemistry course in place of biology I and II. I have otherwise completed rest of the pre-requisites.

      Good Day Everyone,
       
      I applied to an EMPA Residency offered by Georgia Regents University/ Medical College of Georgia. I wanted to know if any fellow PAs applied to this program as well. 
       
      For those who are curious, this program is not listed on the APPAP.org website. I actually found this residency while searching for "unlisted" PA residencies. The school doesn't even have a web "link" for the EMPA residency. Information about the residency can be found at www.doceos.us/course-physician_assistant_program-i10869.htm. I was told by the residency coordinator that the info on this website is quite outdated, so I am still waiting to learn about the details of the residency.
