My name is Mahlia, this is my 3rd time applying to UW and first time being invited to interview.
I would love to get to know some of my future peers and fellow interviewees through this forum. I was also wondering what the interview experience was like for those who interviewed last year via zoom. Was a same small group interview style used? Looking forward to hearing from you all.
Hello everyone, on behalf of the CSOM PA Club, I'd like to invite you to attend our PA club hours hosted every Thursday at 12:30 PM via zoom. These 1-hour sessions are hosted by current PA students and we answer prospective students' questions about our journey into PA school, the CASPA application, pre-requisites, etc. It is an informal environment in which you can come ask all the questions you have and have a feel for what the future might look like for you. If interested, please fill out the attached form and email it back to us at email@example.com at the beginning of the week corresponding to the session you like to attend in order to confirm attendance and receive the meeting link. We look forward to seeing you there.

So I'm 8 weeks away from graduating! Hooray! I wanted to ask you lovely folks what tips you have on job hunting whether it be when to search, what benefits to aim for, important questions you wished you asked, etc.
Anything helps, thanks!
For this cycle, I have had the privilege of being accepted into two PA programs so far. And more interviews to come! My heart is telling me to go to program B, but my brain is telling me to stick with program A. I guess I am wowed by the flashy offerings of program B over program A that finally helps me feel at home at a educational institution(something I didn't have during my undergrad as a first gen student). Maybe this is me doubting myself, but somehow I feel I may not be as academically successful with a PA program that is only two years long because of the material crunch. The only thing holding me back from program B is graduating with crippling debt by the age of 28 😞, especially because I had a full ride to college.
