Some said in this thread that it was MMI style, two interviewers per room, situational questions. I wonder what kind of situational questions they will ask. Im thinking either like "what would you do in this situation??" Or tell me about a situation where you...

From what they told me during the preview day it will be 4 behavioral questions with room for follow up questions. 4 separate rooms with one question per room. The behavioral questions are designed to guess what they can expect out of you in the future based on what you've already done in the past. If this is true then they will ask questions along the line of "name a time you had a disagreement with a coworker and how you resolved that issue"

If that is what they said, its most likely what we can expect for this interview. I am not sure how to prepare for behavioral questions as its difficult to predict what kind of stories you need to have ready but I will try my best. Thanks for your input.

I'm down if anything gets planned. I'll plan to be in the area by 2 pm tomorrow.

And yea those are tough. Hopefully the questions aren't too tricky.

I've spoken to PAs and PA students and the best advice they gave me was to have stories of experiences that you've gone through in your mind. Try writing some down (not necessarily a rehearsed answer just to jot down your stories). Most times your stories can relate to multiple questions. Just have to change how to wrap them up to answer the question.

If anyone is going to be in Pomona tomorrow - I will be at "Mi Cafecitio Coffee" most likely around 2pm. It would be great to meet and then see familiar faces on interview day! & maybe be less stressed (lol if thats possible).

Totally. I'll try to be there in the late afternoon. 

Exactly. That's how I tend to approach it. One way or another, you can usually connect that story to a question that is asked of you.

Im totally interested in meeting up! I am going to try my hardest to show up since I live a little over an hour away and I have work so I can't make any promises but I will for sure let you know!

I had the same question and I emailed admissions about it. They told me to update it on CASPA and send official transcripts to CASPA so you should be fine
