Hi everyone,

I have an interview on July 11th, I was wondering if anyone had information about their interview process/tips they can give me. This is my first PA school interview and I'm a TAD nervous lol.

Thanks!

Same here! I accepted my interview date for July 12 and I'm super nervous about what they might ask. Does anyone know their interview format (group, individual, essays, behavioral questions, etc)?

 

Also I haven't taken the CASPer yet so you can definitely still interview without taking it

Just got an Interview yesterday for either July 11th or 12th!

I just received a call, no email as of yet with the information. I also have yet to take the CASPer, so I don't think they need the scores before sending an interview invite. 

Good luck to everyone! 

I haven’t even gotten a request to take the CASPer test and I submitted and verified May 18th. But good luck to everyone getting interviews so far!

I received a telephone invite on 6/12 for interview on 7/14.

I am new to the Tampa area.  So I'm wondering if any of the candidate would like to explore the city after the interview with me! 

Stat: Overall gpa 3.63, science gpa: 3.36, PCE: 2800 hours, GRE 319.  Hope that it will help.  Good luck and congrats to everyone who got the Interview!

Oh dang! You got a Saturday interview? That would have been way more convenient for me!

Anybody with an Interview, have you done the background check yet? or are you doing it after the interview?

I got an interview without taking the Casper exam so i'm wondering if that is also how it will play out with getting accepted and the background check even though they say it's required to prior to being accepted

Yeah I don't know if I should do it now or wait? It's expensive

Hey everyone,

Submitted on 5/21 and received an email from South on 5/24 that application has been received. All I’ve heard since then is emails about taking the Casper test which I took 6/21.

Anyone else submit early and still not hear back? Do you think this means I don’t have a chance for interview since some of you have received interview offers and got everything done around the same time as me? 

Any feedback is helpful. Good luck everyone!!

I submitted on the 18th, got an email on the 24th from South, but never heard anything about CASper or an interview.

Hey - I'm in the same boat! I received an email from South on 5/21 that my app was received, then an email to take the casper which I did on 6/21.

At this point, I think this means I'm not getting an interview since it's been 1.5 months and people who submitted way after me have received interviews. From previous threads, it looks like they don't formally reject you until October.

That’s how I feel too! It sucks because I would rather just know now then keep wondering. I also saw some people from previous threads who didn’t hear back a month after they submitted versus some people hearing back a week after.

Trying to stay hopeful!

How hard is this CASPer test? If I take the practice today or tomorrow and do the exam this Sunday, will I be fine? I thought it was due by October and just realized interviews are being held now. The next test date is the 7/25, but that is too far right!?

Take it this Sunday. It's not something you can really study for honestly.

agreed. its situations that would be common in business settings or interacting with students or something to do with personal matters. I think since most PA schools require some type of medical experience, that lends itself to performing well on the test. Don't stress about it. Good Luck

      I am a member of AAPA and maybe I am unfamiliar with the website, but I want to make the most learning from the site and using it.
      How do PA-S or PA-C use it? As a Pre-PA how can I use the site and its resources to help?
      I appreciate it!

      Hi guys, 
      I didn't see a new thread. Hope this helps you guys. Just like in previous years they are moving forward, but it may look a bit different because COVID seems to be slowing down. Here's the email I received on 5/11/2021. I submitted my application on 5/3/2021 and verified on 5/11/2021. 
       
      Thank you for applying to the Radford University Carilion PA program. This email is to let you know that your application is complete, has been marked as "Verified", and we have received your RU supplemental application. Your application will be put in a queue to be reviewed. You may still provide updates to your application through the CASPA website.
      Once applications are reviewed, we will make decisions on whom to interview. Our earliest interview dates will be in September. As we don't yet have exact dates selected for interviews, we will likely make offers for interviews in early July at the soonest.
      We will send out periodic updates to keep you apprised of your status. However, with the necessary changes in how we accomplish our tasks, those updates may not be as frequent as we would like them to be. We are happy to answer any questions that come up, and you are welcome to email me at rhadley1@radford.edu.
      Thank you,
      Bob Hadley

      Hi everyone!
      I am currently in my third semester of didactic year and will be starting clinical rotations in the fall. My family is moving to Tampa and I was hoping to get a rotation set up in the area. I am looking for a preceptor in family or internal medicine, pediatrics, behavioral, women's health, or emergency medicine.
      If you know any contacts or other forums I could reach out to please let me know, thank you!
