Congratulations to everyone that received an invite!

Email: KenWaters@KTRM.co

Cell: (925) 348-3665

Best wishes everyone!

Hello Everyone!

Late to the forum but very happy to see other people out here playing the waiting game! Congratulations! I see a lot of posts from rock-stars with interview requests already and can't imagine the excitement you must all be feeling right now!

A little about myself, happy to see other Navy Corpsman in this application cycle, I loved being a FMF Corpsman for 5 years and spent 2 years as a Medical Assistant in Primary care at a UW Neighborhood clinic in Ballard.

I have not received an interview invitation yet, but am hopeful every day for the email to show. For those of you that have not been contacted yet, never lose hope! There is plenty of time for our moment to shine and I anticipate a pretty big turn-out for Tacoma Class #6. Lord-only knows how many applications they are going through right now!

If anyone wants to practice interviewing and compare notes sometime, please feel free to reach out anytime:

Sent in my caspa/medex supplement 8/31, 

med ex criteria met 9/22

Soooo feeling super discouraged since I just realized invites have been sent and I have not gotten an email about such. Are the "2nd round interview" a continuation for people who did great with their first interview or another round of new interviews? 

also congrats to everyone who got interviews just feeling slightly petty lol.

I'm 23 so I felt somewhat disadvantaged to other applicants since I'm a CNA and other people are like 35 years old with RN degree or was in desert storm it sounds like.

There will be a second round of interviews with different applicants.

Hey guys! I love the fact that this thread everyone is so friendly and getting to know each other! (unlike some other school threads). I'm Anastasia, coming all the way from Virginia. Have been an EMT for the past 6 years and worked everywhere from EMS to transport to now an ER tech. I'm from Russia, so I will make sure to treat you guys to some Russian treats in our next class (fingers and toes crossed over here). Have not heard from Tacoma yet, but I am hoping to. MEDEX Tacoma is my #1 choice as I so badly want to be in WA, a huge part of my family is there and I have none left in VA. Best of luck to those of you that are interviewing in a few days and positive vibes for those that are still waiting.

Don't feel disadvantaged, my wife was 29 which is considered fairly young for the program. There is one girl in Anchorage Class 8 that is 24 or so. Don't let being a CNA get you down, there is a wide range of experience, my wife was a CMA, her classmates range from Rad Techs, Dental Techs to Pharmacy Techs to EMT's. If you don't get in the first time, improve your application and try again. I will probably have to apply a few times since I will be new to the medical field and hopefully my EMT experience once I get certified and lots of shadowing will help supplement against some of the more experienced applicants.

Hello!

I have been reading everyone's posts to find out when everyone was hearing about interviews and decided I should probably make an account and share a little about myself.

My name is Madey and this is my 3rd time applying. I have 3 years experience as a phlebotomist and 2 years as an emergency department scribe in the enumclaw and Tacoma area. I have lived here my whole life and hope to make it into the program this year given the campus is so close to home! 

I have not been invited to the first round of interviews but I'm optimistic about the next round. Please let me know when you hear that the second round has been posted :)

Hi guys! Has anyone heard anything about round 2 of interviews?? I see that a good handful of people have been accepted from the first round and wasn't sure when/if we should be waiting to hear anything about another round of invites. Congrats to all those who got accepted!!!

I received an email invite for the BCHS Tacoma Class #6 interviews on Oct. 21! I'm a re-applicant, made it to the interviews last year, got waitlisted & unfortunately wasn't chosen. So, hopefully it's a different story this year! Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Email for interview on 9/19
Medex criteria met on 9/15
Caspa verified / Medex app submitted on 8/31

Did you get a call or waitlisted again? Did you know where you were on the waitlist? I got waitlisted for this cycle?

Congrats to all who recieved an invite to the second round of interviews! I interviewed and was accepted in the first round for Tacoma class 6. As I'm sure you have all heard by now, be yourself. It is by far the best advice I was given. Remember, you have been chosen from a very large pool of applicants. They know your qualifications, show them who you are and what you wish to contribute to MEDEX. Although it's a long day, it's actually fun. The interviewers are genuine and wish for you to succeed. Take a deep breath, answer honestly no matter what, and support your fellow applicants.  Can't wait to meet you guys! Good luck!

      This is going to sound pretty dumb but I'm serious! I'm so confused when it comes to applying to PA schools regarding the prerequisite coursework. I know MEDEX say that the courses can't be a part of prior training, but then I read online articles about how to incorporate prereqs for PA schools into your undergrad experience, killing 2 birds with 1 stone sorta thing...I understand the necessary courses. But I'm having a hard time discerning if the coursework can have been done as a part of one's undergrad. For example the cellular bio I took in my undergrad. Will that be applicable to MEDEX? Or does every prereq have to be done after completing one's bachelors? By the way I have a BA, not a BS. I'm late to the party:(

      Hey everyone,
      It was great to meet so many amazing, skilled people at the interview yesterday!  I was wondering if anyone wanted to keep in touch after the interviews?  It’s always good to network, right?  Anyway, hit me up if anyone wants to talk about anything PA related or not.  I wish everyone the best of luck in all your interviews and future PA endeavors!

      I believe invites for Anchorage interviews were around this time last year (based on last years ANC forum feed). Starting this topic for news, collaboration and support. Good luck to all.

      Hey everyone!
      I am creating this form so everyone that who has received an acceptance phone call/letter can communicate together more efficiently. Has anyone received a phone call yet? If and when you receive an acceptance phone call/letter be sure to let us know so everyone can keep track of who is going to be the future classmates of Tacoma Class 6. Best wishes to everyone!
