I have also not received a rejection email or interview email. I will post on here when I do.I know last year they sent invites out on 3 different days, so I'm hoping that's the case this year as well.

Do you know when they stopped sending? Have you heard anything?

Hey guys! Does anyone else who has received an interview happen to know the interview style OCU uses? Just want to know how to best prepare and whether it is individual/traditional, group, MMI, etc. I can't seem to find any information on this based on the emails sent or their website. Thanks in advance! ?

It’s an individual interview (you plus three or so interviewers) according to previous students.

Same here! I meant to inquire when I first got the invite, but it slipped my mind. Receiving only a two week notice to come out and interview was a bit rough, especially for us out-of-state folk. I sent an email out Sunday, but have yet to receive a reply. I fly out from Phoenix tomorrow morning and am considering trying to call beforehand to get some more info on this.

Best of luck to you and everyone else!

I spoke with the admissions director this morning and he confirmed the format of the interview. There will first be a writing portion, and your responses will be provided to the panel prior to your sit down with them. Then, you meet with the panel individually for 45 minutes to an hour. Best of luck to you all!

I got interviewed by a PA from the community and a faculty member at the same time. They kind of just bounced questions off each other and were very thorough- lasted 45min to 1hr. I would say it was a very relaxed interview, they just really want to know what makes you, you. So nothing to worry about, or be stressed about. They also said faculty meets on Monday to make decisions, so we will be hearing by Oct for sure!

So, is anybody else still anxiously awaiting their decision?! I know they met yesterday, but I still haven’t seen anybody post about their acceptance email nor have I received one.

      Looking for some advice- I plan on applying the 2021 cycle but I’m a bit neurotic and really just need to plan out everything ahead of time.
      My cgpa and sgpa will both be around a 3.25 (currently taking post bacc classes) if I continue with an upwards trend. I should have around 2000-3000 PCE by the time I apply, I’m currently an ER scribe, volunteer EMT.
      I have about 30 PA shadowing hours but I work with a lot more pa’s in the ER now so I’ll be shadowing them; I've done some other pce work like PT aid, I also went on a medical mission trip to Nicaragua through Global Medical Brigades and worked in a community health clinic. 
      Will also be taking the GRE soon.
      I guess I’m just very afraid of getting denied, idk if I should continue to take classes at cc and boost my gpa even more (super hard bc I messed up my first two years of college) or should I do a masters? My gpa is holding me back a lot, I am trying to shine in other aspects of my app but I’m a bit lost and I just know that I want to be a PA more than anything. Are there any specific schools any of you would recommend looking more into? Anything else I can do to better my chances/ app? If you have any insight please lmk!!

      I'm currently a junior in college and have decided to switch career paths from a dietitian to a PA. I don't have any PCE hours (except for some volunteer EMS hours in high school) so I am wondering the timeline for how I would apply to PA school if I took a gap year. I am a college athlete so I can only obtain very minimal HCE hours during the academic year and thus plan on taking a gap year to work as a PT aide and volunteer EMT. From what I have researched most PA school applications open up in June for the program to start the following year, and there is no way I could get the minimum amount of hours before applying. If I take a gap year after my senior year, then apply to school, this would mean waiting two years to begin school. Is it possible to complete PCE hours after applying, or do you think it would be a better idea to strengthen my application through two years of experience as an EMT & PT aide. Thanks in advance!

      I am currently an undergraduate and I am looking to apply next cycle 2020-2021. I have a list of schools I want to apply to that have pretty late application dates so I could get in as many health care hours as possible before application. I am planning to have ~1000 hours by application and ~2000 prior to matriculation. My GPA and GRE are very high. I have volunteer, leadership, shadowing, and research experience. My question is for schools that do not have a 1000+ hour requirement would it be more beneficial to apply a few months earlier or to wait until I hit the 1000 hour benchmark. Will it make much of a difference? Is it better to apply early because of rolling decisions or try to get as many hours before application?
