Hello everyone,

 

Just had my interview yesterday with the program. I was so anxious but the faculty is so nice and understand the nerves that come along with the interview process and do a great job of making you comfortable. 

 

As far as preparation, there’s not much you can do for the writing portion after the face to face interview but I would practice your general program questions and be prepared if you have any bumps in your caspa application. They will ask you about your strengths and weaknesses.

 

Best of luck! 

Did they tell you when you will hear back? Also how long was the interview?

Hi SBLI

Can you tell me how long does the interview last? And it’s one on one or it is you and other students? And how many people interview you? Did they tell you when you should expect the answer from them?

are you from NY?

Hello,

 

They said to expect a phone call no later than May 31st. The interview process was about an hour and a half long, and you are interviewed by 2-3 staff members. It’s just you and them. I am from NY

I was accepted 14March. I interviewed February 27th. Congrats to those that have been interviewed and accepted. I can't wait to meet everyone.

The interview process is pretty standard. 2 interviewers, and they go back and forth with the questions. The questions are very standard: What is the role of a PA?, Why do you want to be a PA? What do you bring to the classroom if we accept you?, what type of medicine do you see yourself doing? 

Once those questions are done you finish with your essay/short answer. Similar to GRE essay.

@ShipsCorpsman is right. The interview is pretty standard. I honestly felt more comfortable at this interview than any other. The interviewers are very nice, they really make it more of a conversation than an interrogation. The questions are mostly about why you want to be a PA, what you can bring to the program, why you are interested in the program, etc. I wish you the best of luck! I can't wait to meet you all.

Hello Everyone,

I spoke to Mrs. Spain today and she stated that the next step after your commitment application ($250 deposit) will be the class codes for registration. She also stated that there will be a medical terminology textbook assignment for over the summer. All of these steps will be announced via email. CUNY York academic calendar for Fall 2018 is not posted yet. If I hear anything else I will post it here.

      Hi guys, 
      I didn't see a new thread. Hope this helps you guys. Just like in previous years they are moving forward, but it may look a bit different because COVID seems to be slowing down. Here's the email I received on 5/11/2021. I submitted my application on 5/3/2021 and verified on 5/11/2021. 
       
      Thank you for applying to the Radford University Carilion PA program. This email is to let you know that your application is complete, has been marked as "Verified", and we have received your RU supplemental application. Your application will be put in a queue to be reviewed. You may still provide updates to your application through the CASPA website.
      Once applications are reviewed, we will make decisions on whom to interview. Our earliest interview dates will be in September. As we don't yet have exact dates selected for interviews, we will likely make offers for interviews in early July at the soonest.
      We will send out periodic updates to keep you apprised of your status. However, with the necessary changes in how we accomplish our tasks, those updates may not be as frequent as we would like them to be. We are happy to answer any questions that come up, and you are welcome to email me at rhadley1@radford.edu.
      Thank you,
      Bob Hadley

      Hey everyone, there are still tickets available for those who are interested in the Loma Linda PA program. We have changed our event from zoom to being ON CAMPUS. There will be prizes raffled off. Due to some restrictions still being in place, the tickets that are being sold will only allow one person per ticket. More info on the flyer and event bright website. Thank you so much! Hope to see you there. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/llus-3rd-annual-pre-pa-conference-tickets-145958073527

      Hi there, my name is Vanessa and I just graduated with my bachelor's in February. I am looking to pursue into a PA program but not quite sure where to start. I am currently studying for the GRE and have about 250 internship hours done at an ENT clinic with an audiologist. I'm not sure in what I am doing and need any guidance or suggestion in what to do.
