So I have had a few messages from interviewees asking for my stats and what I did so I will post here my opinion. I don't think stats are particularly relevant at this stage. I feel it was told at interview that our stats got us there, the rest is just seeing if we are a good fit. How was I a good fit? I honestly don't know. But here is my experience of the interview day. I tried to have fun. I opened each interview with a small joke or fun anecdote so the school could get a feel of who I am as a person. With every question I tried to answer with a small anecdote using my experience. While I was there I got a feeling that my own priorities, experience, and philosophies aligned with the schools. I know it sounds very vague but I have no straight answer. I hope everyone enjoyed their interview day and I look forward to meeting the cohort.

I was just accepted into Quinnipiac!! I was wondering if there is a Facebook group that I can join? I am excited to meet everyone! 

That is wonderful news! Congratulations! There is not an official Facebook group yet. Was QU your 1st choice? What is your background?

Hey guys! Just accepted into Quinnipiac as well! I’ll be moving out there from Utah so it would be nice to get to know some fellow class mates before hand. Congrats to everyone else who got accepted!

Hi Brad, search for the FB group QU PA C/O 2020. There are plenty of accepted people who are on there!

      Just looking for any insight.
       
      I am currently accepted into 3 PA programs and am having a hard time choosing between programs. Below are what my options look like. I am wondering what factors I should focus my attention towards.
      Currently, I am leaning toward SUNY Upstate because of the graduation rate (98.4) and the attrition rate (2.2%). Next is DeSales with a grad rate of (93 to 95%) and attrition rate (6.7%). 
       
      Here is the table!
       
       
      1. Should I weigh the attrition rate very strongly when choosing? I will be away from my fiancé as she completes her own PA program and have a feeling that I should choose a program that won’t dismiss me if I have a slight setback.
       
      2. I graduate undergrad May 14th from New Mexico. Should my start date be a major factor? With Quinnipiac, I would have a short time to get my affairs in order. While with Desales, I have a few months.
       
      3. SUNY tries to put all clinical rotations in 1 semi-rural facility. Each student has their own facility. Should this be looked at as a negative trait, or does 1 site allow me to do more around the facility? Would this lack of different sites hurt me from finding jobs across the nation?
       
       ​4. I am a young African American male. Are there areas in these communities I should avoid? This is a silly question due to the fact that your personality determines who you are and how people treat you, but I am just keeping an open mind.
       
      I know this seems kind of ridiculous to ask on a forum and should be a personal choice, but I just want as many perspectives as possible from those who are familiar with the career. My goal is to simply become a great provider for my patients and not go crazy trying to make this choice.  This community has helped me so much throughout my academic career. Any insight helps. Thank you!
       
      P.S. If you see any incorrect information on this table, feel free to correct me! No offense information about PA programs please. If there is a severely negative aspect, you can email me because I still want to hear it J

      Hey everyone.  Just thought I would start a thread to open some communication and networking for people accepted to the Class of 2017!  I'm really excited for the program to start and can't wait to meet everyone.

      Hi, all. So, I'm interested in applying to Quinnipiac for the September deadline this year. On the admissions website, it says
       
      "The most competitive applicants should possess at a minimum: ... A minimum of one year (2,000 hours) direct patient care experience in the U.S. health care system"
       
      I probably won't have 2,000 hours by the application deadline-- I'll probably have 1500-1700, working as a volunteer EMT, plus a GPA of 3.8. I took the admissions website to mean that a lower number of hours was a ding on the application, but would still be considered, but heard from a fellow EMT that QU won't really consider applicants that have fewer than 2000 hours of experience.
       
      So, it's third-hand information, but enough to freak me out. Any feedback from people who've been admitted, or people who have been to the info sessions. (I'm signed up for the next one, in March) Thanks so much in advance!
