Congrats to all of those who have been accepted!

Out of curiosity, does anyone know if there are more interviews scheduled in the upcoming months?

They said they're doing interviews through January, one weekly!

Congrats!!!!! Any additional tips? Others have said it's important to be yourself in the interview. 

Being yourself is definitely important! As someone mentioned above, the interview consists of 3 rooms with 2-3 interviewers per room at ~8-10 minutes. Be prepared for questions that come at you quickly, as well as many situational/behavioral questions. I recommend having a "grab bag" of experiences that you can pull from to answer them...this is way better than having super rehearsed answers to every single little question and you won't come off as fake. Also this way, you won't be spending too much time thinking and can answer almost right away, which is beneficial when you have limited time!

Other than that, in the beginning, try to mingle and talk with everyone..really get to know the faculty and ask questions of the students on the tour. I had a really great experience and I felt more excited than nervous. 

Good luck!!

hey everyone! I applied very early to NOVA-Orlando but have yet to hear anything back regarding my status. I have been accepted elsewhere, but Orlando is still my first choice. Would I have received a rejection letter by now if they were not still possibly considering me for an interview invite? Thanks and congrats to everyone who has been accepted!

Not necessarily. I interviewed on 11/7, and they said they are scheduled out through December at this point. They have filled all their seats as of 10/24 and are currently filling the "accept hold" and alternate lists. I think "no news is good news" or at least not bad news right now. They are conducting interviews once a week with about 10-15 per group. Good luck!

Thank you! I interviewed 10/31 and was initially 7th on the accept hold list. You should call Sarah! She can tell you your spot and then estimate your chances based off of that 🤗

I interviewed 11/14 and the other day Sarah told me I'm 5th on the list. Not sure how many people are behind me but you can email and ask!

Got an email from Sarah that I didn't see before because it went into my junk mail. Check your spam/junk folders people!!! This was sent to me on 1/16. Previous email said they were interviewing into the end of February. My interview is Feb 27th so wish me luck y'all!! 🙂

 

Good afternoon!

 

I wanted to send a quick update with where we are at in our admissions cycle. As of today, we have exhausted our pending list. This means that the potential of interviewing for an actual seat at the time of your interview has increased exponentially!

 

We cannot wait to see you in February and hope you’re just as excited to meet us as we are to meet you!

 

All the best,

Sarah Kimble

      Hi, everyone!
      What are your thoughts on applying to programs with a ARC-PA probationary accreditation status (i.e., "Accreditation-Probation")?
      I'm a first-time applicant, and a couple schools that I have my eye on currently have probationary statuses (Johnson & Wales University; Monmouth University). I was wondering if it's worth applying to said schools, especially to ones that have had a probationary status for more than two years. 
      Although these schools are still considered accredited, is it safe to apply to & then attend these schools? Do these schools prepare students to become competent & trustworthy healthcare professionals? Are these schools worth the debt? My concern is enrolling in a school with probationary accreditation and graduating as a sub par PA-C, but those are just my uncertain sentiments at the moment. 
      Moreover, I've read that applying to these schools may be advantageous to some who aren't considered "strong applicants" (e.g., average grades/GRE). On the other hand, I've seen "strong applicants" display their admiration & loyalty to these schools here on PA Forum. I'm confused! Let's open up the discussion!

      I am sure this has been asked before, if so, please forward it to me. But when writing out the description and responsibilities of your various experiences, should the format be a list/bullet point or more of a thoughtful written out paragraph? 
      What I have so far (in an excel sheet), is a list of my responsibilities with a small blurb of something I learned during that experience. 
      Here is an example of one of my work experiences:
      Active duty Navy, worked in hospitals on land and sea             Prepared operating room for surgery                 In charge of setting up sterile supplies                 Assisted the nurse and/or PA in positioning the patient on the operating table         Prepped the patient by shaving, washing, and disinfecting the surgical site         Applied sterile surgical drapes on the patient                Passed surgical instruments to the physician                Assisted the physician during the surgery                 Sutured incision site                   Applied wound dressings                   Learned that each member of the operating room team, regardless of education level, plays a vital role in the patient's safety  
      Any advice/experience is much appreciated

      I started a job as a CNA in a hospital shortly after submitting my CASPA application to schools. However, since it is a current position that I plan on staying in until I start a program, how do I maintain my CASPA application, specifically the "number of weeks" section required for the experience? I do not have an acceptance this cycle as of now, and I want to keep schools I haven't heard back from up to date. I don't know whether to put in 52 weeks in that section since I will be there for approximately one year from my start date even if I get into a program this cycle, or just keep updating it every week that goes by? Right now I have 52 weeks in that section with a disclaimer explaining my start date and plans to keep the position until I start a program in the "description/key responsibilities" section under it. Please share your own experiences, I can't be the only one in this dilemma! Thanks in advance 🙂

      I was checking my verified application & I have “Punjabi” listed under “native language”.  On CASPA my response to “first language” was “Punjabi”.   To clarify, I am fluent in English. (I’ve been speaking English since I was 5!! I answered to "first language" quite literally.) Will I run into any problem with PA programs? Would they assume otherwise?   --I was born in California and went to schools K-12 in Cali and then Uni of Cali, Santa Cruz for undergrad. Has anyone else experienced this?
      **The application is locked & I am unable to change it to English**

      Hi All!
      I am a graduate student in public health and have worked with providers to inform patient care plans as well as screen patients for adverse childhood experiences, resiliency, quality of life, etc... I have not been an EMT, CNA, Aid, or other roles that are usually seen with direct patient care experience for PA schools. I have already submitted my application, but after attending an information session I am nervous that schools will not count my public health hours as patient care (I made the mistake of listing them as health care experience and not patient care experience). Does anyone have any thoughts on this process? I have already reached out to one school directly and added the experiences as patient care experience in CASPA (it lets you do this even after submission, but I do not know what happens next). I do have a lot of healthcare experience and research experience. Have anyone else added experiences after they submitted? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to private message if that is better for you. Thanks so much! I really appreciate any support with this!
