Hello applicants! I am a PS-1 set to start the program at Methodist August 16th. If you have any questions regarding the program, application, or interviews I will do my best to answer and ask fellow classmates as well to get all answers for you. First interview is usually August. Good Luck!!!

I will be flying in from WI/MN area! Do you have any suggestions outside of the packet information?

The Fayetteville airport is pretty small and sometimes the flights are limited. I’ve heard of flights getting canceled (ahead of time) that didn’t have enough passengers, but i cannot speak from personal experience for that airport. The RDU airport is pretty busy and Raleigh has more traffic than Fayetteville. I’ve picked a friend up from there before and it was easy to find him. 

In regards to the interview itself, I have several friends who are at Methodist now, and they said the interview is laid back. The staff just wants to get to know you as a person. If you have any other questions let me know girl!

Will be my first as well. Super excited but the nervousness has set in! Congrats to all interviewing. They only interviewed 9% of applicants last year.

@BrittanyJ95 @Paramedic2PA @dthum

If any of you are in town the evening before and wanted to meet up, I would be happy to facilitate something! 

I live about 50 minutes from Fayetteville and would be available to meet up if y’all want to. Might help calm some nerves!

I'm excited about the interview, and honored to be one of the 9%.  I used to live near the Fayetteville area, so it'll be nice to go somewhere that I'm at least familiar with re: navigating.  Best wishes everyone and can't wait to meet some of you as I'm interviewing July 26th - morning session!

If you guys don't mind me asking what were your stats when you applied?

My undergrad GPA 3.90, sciene/pre-req GPA 4.0, GRE 312 or 314 and 5 on the writing, PCE 2500+, volunteering 1000+, 40 hours or so shadowing.  Let me know if you were looking for any other stats.

Accepted.

Goodluck all! Methodist is an exceptional program, and I enjoyed the entire interview day. To anyone interviewing in the future, relax and be yourself!

They just want to get to know you.

On the alternate list after interviewing last week. Pretty bummed because I really liked this program. Anyone have any insight on the alternate list for this program in the past?

I hear a nice portion of the class was taken off of the alternate list.
