Congratulations to those that got in! 

what were your applications like? (Gpa, previous gpa in bachelors, occupation, clinical experience hours, gre scores). Did you all feel like essay quality played a big role for your application? Did you you feel like the interview went very well or was it just okay? Sorry to be nosy lol but you guys are like the perfect people to ask to better my chances next time lol

Did you interview?

So for me, I feel like the essay is your ticket to the interview. It's what gives the school an ide of who you are and what you're about. GPA and clinical experience will boost that as well. If our GPA is low then I would retake classes and get that GPA up. If you need more experience, then get more! 

I would say when writing the essay, have people read it and give you constructive criticism. Find friends who are English majors, and PAs and have them look at it. Most of all, be sure you answer the question that you're being asked. 

Lastly, shadow. Shadow a lot and in diverse specialties. That will show the school that you really care and have a strong desire. 

Again, that's my 2 cents. This is what worked for me, maybe others have different insights.

Congrats to everyone that was accepted into the Tacoma class 6! It looks like they are starting the second round of interviews, as I received an invite to interview on December 9th. I am very excited to interview. If anyone has any words of wisdom I would love to hear. Congrats again to you all!

Congratulations on getting invited to the interview conference! I interviewed on October 21st and was selected for TC6. The best advice I received was to just be yourself. Easier said than done. Remember, everyone else interviewing with you is as equally qualified to fill a seat but this confrence is for the faculty and staff to get to know YOU better. 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.

      I'd like to meetup on Friday in the evening if anyone is interested. I'm thinking seven seas brewing, it's close to campus.
