Anyone know how many applicants they are accepting into the program? I recieved my interview email Friday and scheduled it for March 1. Just wondering if there will be any open spots still available in the program (seeing lots of acceptance into the program so far on here). Congrats, by the way :) 

They are admitting 35-40 students! There’s only been two acceptances on here so far and probably a couple of more people but defiantly not the majority of people I’m sure there will be spots open for the March interview

Hey guys, 

I do know from asking around, that a friend of a friend has been wait-listed. I obviously don't know what her portfolio looks like, but they aren't just accepting people as soon as they interview for sure.

Nice to meet you, Nate. Any tips for those who haven’t interviewed yet?

In the January 11th interview they had said something about emailing everyone who came. For those who attended the January 3rd interview, did you receive an email after the interview?

I second this! Any tips for the interview? I'm glad it seems like the interviews are after the tour so we have some time to warm up to the school.

So you are actually split into two groups. One group interviews while the other tours and then they switch. There is also a 30 minutes essay with the group that is touring. There is a long presentation about Lipscomb and tuition in the morning so that should give you time to warm-up to the school. They are so so nice so you probably do not need to tour first to feel welcomed at Lipsomb.

Thank you! I’m nervous as this is my first interview. Should I be prepared for questions other than about my resume?

Yes, just like basic situational questions that are usually asked in an interview.

I never received an email after the interview, I only received a call saying that I was accepted. The interview is very relaxed and all the faculty are extremely nice.

Thanks for all the tips, dude. Is a suit too formal? Like I said, this is my first interview so I’m probably overthinking everything.

Yeah, girls and guys should wear suits. PA school interviews are all business formal!

Ya their dress code is business casual so dressing as nice as possible would help! For girls don’t feel like you have to wear a suit, I wore a dress, received a compliment from a faculty member and got in, so just as long as you are professional looking.

Really? You think a professional dress and blazer over would be okay for Lipscomb? Thanks for all your tips by the way and congrats on your acceptance :)

Yes! That’s exactly what I did and it was totally fine. The female faculty were also dressed the same way as I was if that helps at all.  And no problem I’m happy to help! :)

Applied yesterday evening and was invited for an interview today! Super fast turn around. I will be interviewing on March 1, hoping the program won’t already be full by then.
