Hey!! Are you familiar with how they'll conduct interviews this year? I got invited to the June 22nd interview today, and was told there's one group interview and one individual interview. Any suggestions on how to prepare for the group interview? Any specific content to focus on? Anything helps with it being only 11 days away  Thanks!

Congrats on the invite! Do you mind sharing your stats?

Thank you for sharing! Did they indicate other interview dates available or just the option for June 22nd ?

@hmyer Congrats on the interview! I’ll be seeing you next Friday! For everything that day, don’t be nervous and just be yourself. It’s a day for the staff to get to know you better. They have seen your application and how you are on paper, but now they want to get to know you! Answer all the questions honestly. So, just be yourself and stay relaxed!! If you have any other questions, let me know!

Has anyone gotten a confirmation email or anything from Dominican? I haven't heard anything. 

Once my CASPA was verified, I received a confirmation email from them about 4 hours later saying that my app was under review. That was 6/28.

Of those who've been offered an interview is there anyone willing to share their stats? 

3.47 overall GPA, 3.39 sGPA

4,000+ patient care experience hours as a PCT and phlebotomist

GRE: V 152, Q 157, AW 4.5

100 hrs PA shadowing

Hope this helps! I applied here last year, with the same GPA, fewer patient care hours and a lower GRE and did not receive an interview

How were the interviews for those who have had them already? Is there something you wish you had prepared for? What was the best thing and the worst thing about your interview?! How does one prepare for the interview? Please share your experience If you'd like!

I haven't received anything from them either and I was verified on 6/4. I left a voice mail for the admissions office last week but have not heard back.

      Hello all!
      I’m relatively new to this site and it’s my first time posting. I recently submitted my applications and I received an email yesterday from a school about my grade in Orgo 1. I got a C- (ugh. I know) and they said that they couldn’t substitute Orgo 2 for that requirement. They asked if I would be interested in retaking the course which I am interested in doing if it’ll increase my chances of getting in. 
      My question is: how do I go about adding that to my application if I’m not taking the class until the fall? Should I call each program I applied to and tell them my intention of retaking it or should I just add it to my transcript on CASPA saying it’s in progress even though it won’t start until August?
      Thanks in advance!

      Hi! Does anyone know of any programs that once required the GRE and are now no longer requiring it this year due to COVID? I wanted to apply to a few more schools but haven’t taken the GRE. Thanks!
