Hi everybody!
I see lots of posts about PA school interview questions, and that's great.  But I'm wondering about questions that we might ask our interviewers.  I look up everything I can, and I'm not sure what's left to ask.  However, if anyone has any input about this it would really help!

Be genuine with your questions! Look up the program and ask any questions that come to mind.

Also, consider where you want to go with the profession, where the PA profession itself is heading and where your interviewers came from to get to where they are now. People like to talk about themselves and their story and they like to see that you're interested in them and also thinking about your future. Having 7-10 questions prepared is a good idea but you probably won't have time to ask them all!

I know this isn't specific questions but I hope it helps!

      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 everyone! I’m looking to take on some more pre-PA students who need help with CASPA review, personal statement brainstorming/editing and interview prep.
      I’m 4.5 years out of PA school with experience in NYC and Baltimore and am a former interview committee member! 
      Please send an email to applyingtopaschools@gmail.com for more info and pricing!

      Hi all,
       
      It is my first cycle applying and I am wondering if anyone has any guidance or suggestions towards interview preparation. I know that there are resources for mock interviews but they are usually $100+ just for one. Does anyone have any other ideas especially just to get started or how to become confident and ready on interview day? i am very personable and don't typically struggle during interview situations but with these I know I will be nervous and I don't want that to be the only impression left on the adcoms.
       
      Or when is a good time to begin the preparation and everything we should know about the schools before interviews? 
       
      Any feedback on things that helped you or you plan to do is much appreciated!
       
      Thanks and good luck to everyone!

      Hello everyone!
      My name is Kou-Lai and I am actually an undergraduate student who has an interest in becoming a Physician Assistant. I am doing a project for one of my class and I have to interview a professional about their community. More specifically, we are focused on how different communities use different languages and writings to communicate to each other. I will be using your answers as part of my project (in the form of a presentation), but will remain anonymous. 
      Please help me and Answer as freely as you would like. I really appreciate it!
       
      1.      Do Physician Assistants communicate with other Physician Assistants, or people of other profession, often? How often do you communicate with other people during your day (even on your days off)?
       
      2.      In what ways are you communicating with other professionals? Writing? etc? Are there specific ways you address, speak, or write to other professionals?
       
      3.      What about non-professionals? If you meet students often, what differences do you see when speaking/writing to them compared to professionals?
       
      4.      When talking to patients/people outside the community, how do you do so? Do you use a different way of speaking to them?
       
      5.      What types of writing do PA professionals do on the job? Is everything (that is written) to be communicated? Or are they for any other purposes?
       
      6.      Are there special documents, forms, or papers that are unique to a professional in the PA field?  How do they relate to the PA community? What are some details that are usually included on the documents?
       
      7.      What is the most important type of document that a student should know/be able to produce? What special language or writing should a student use if they are interested in the PA career.
       
      8.      What is the best way a student can approach this community? How can they start learning how to speak or write in this profession?
       
      9.      Do you do research as part of the job? Do you do research outside the job? Is research part of the job?
       
      10.  Can you share samples of the documents you’ve told me about today?   If not do you know of links, or websites, or other resources that would provide me with samples?

      Hello!
      I am a high school senior with two questions about NYIT's BSPA program. 
      1. Does anyone know the amount of pre-undergrad students that are accepted into the program each year? The FAQ page isn't very clear on whether it's talking about the last three years or who's initially accepted into the school under that program.
      2. Is it possible to be accepted without an interview? I was accepted into the program, but there was no invitation for an interview or anything. 
      Congratulations to everyone who got accepted by the way! 😄
