Congrats to everyone who has already received acceptances!! I recently became interested in this program and noticed that their deadline is later than many. I was curious if anyone knows anything about whether there's a good chance of receiving an interview this late in the cycle or not though. Thank you in advance for any input!

I applied the first week of June and I haven't heard anything back aside from a confirmation email. However, people who applied later than I did have received interviews so who is to say you won't get one! Good luck.

When was your application verified? I haven't received the "application being reviewed" email yet.

For those who already interviewed, can you touch on the experience? Was any part of the interview tough or not what you expected? Any tips on how to prepare? Thanks!

It’s very laid back and not what you would expect. I went in thinking it would be super formal and intimidating but it was not. as for how to prepare, there were a lot of abstract discussion based questions. Not just straight up “why do you want to be a PA”

I submitted my application on June 6. I got the "thank you for your interest" email on June 18 and then the "awaiting admissions committee review" email from Michelle on Sept 12!

I received an invitation to interview last week and they gave me three dates in October to choose from. I will be there October 12th, so they definitely are still interviewing! Good luck!

Long shot, but has anyone who applied late July/ early August heard back besides the “we have your application” email?

My application for CASPA was verified around June 15! It took them a while to email me the "application being reviewed."

Congrats!! I’m a first time applicant still hoping to hear from them with an interview!!

What do you think helped you to get an interview this time? What did you focus on to improve your chances? 

Thanks!

Thanks! 

Applying early was definitely big in hearing from a lot more schools. Last year I submitted by end of August. This year I submitted to all schools by end of May!

things i did to improve from last year:

-Took Bio 2

- Shadowed 3 more different PA’s

- continued to work as an ATC (more patient care hours)

Hi guys, I’m interviewing tomorrow but just got accepted to one of my top choices! Do you think it’s too late to email Michelle to decline the interview and withdraw my app?

Email her. So someone else can possibly get that opportunity.

Yeah, it would also look very unprofessional if they expect you there and you didn’t show up! I just email one of my school that I won’t be accepting their interview date and they were fine with it :)

Anyone who has interviewed in Miami already - can you provide some insight on what the interview process was like!? Aka the interview structure, the kinda questions they asked, the schedule for the day, etc. Anything would be super helpful!!
