Hey everyone!  Got an interview for 2-26.   Seems like they are taking a break from interviews from the 12/11 group and restarting late February.  Anyone else interviewing that date?  Good luck to everyone interviewing tomorrow!

Hey guys!

I also interviewed on 11/6 and got the acceptance call this week! Just to second what @Durian123 said, I didn't feel great about the group interview either, but their interview format allows you ample opportunities to express who you are and why you would be a great fit for the MSPAS/MPH program at Touro. I also agree with @DramaShears 100%, just be confident and genuine!

 

I've seen in posts from previous years that the Facebook group for the newly admitted class was created by students already in the PA program. Does anyone have any information on when that group will be made so that we can start to figure out housing and other info?

Hi @PALJP, we have not yet started making the Facebook group, we will work on getting that made sometime this Spring after returning from Winter break. We will keep you updated!

Congrats to everyone who has been accepted so far!! 

I was wondering if there are any current Touro PA students or someone else that might know how many spots in the incoming class are still open (or have an estimate)?  I was so impressed with this program when I attended their open house earlier this year in March, but I am just now sending in my supplemental application.

Hi @jae22, I'm the current VP of the class of 2021, Touro does not release how many students they have accepted/how many more they plan to. Sorry! I'm happy to hear that you liked the school, they are continuing with interviews, so don't lose hope!

Thank you for the response!  I will be waiting patiently for their decision 🙂

I got an invite for the supplemental about a week ago. I've been hemming and hawing if I even want to throw 50 bucks at the application. It seems pretty late in the cycle. Thoughts?

Hello SW2PA, if you are interested in Touro's program then I highly recommend you submit the supplemental, and make a strong case for your intent to attend their school and how your experience and passion mirror their mission. My understanding is that the adcom will be interviewing through April. I wish you the best!

Has anyone heard back from the 12/11 interview yet? Last year people received phone calls as early as 12/15. Best of luck to everyone who  interviewed!

How's it going CTPAAPPLICANT2018?? I have not received any communication from the adcom. What group were you in? I was in group C. Hope you are well. Take care. 🙂

For those of you interviewing on 11/27:

If you are looking for  lodging and transportation information check here for recommendations from the school:

http://admissions.tu.edu/lodging/

http://facilities.tu.edu/campusmap/

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in American Canyon for my interview. It was nice and they had a continental breakfast in the morning which was super convenient, and just happens to be right across the street from the Starbucks (I can’t go without a good cup of coffee in the morning, so this was a necessity for me)! The school also offers a light breakfast before the interview which I definitely recommend taking advantage of. There are some restaurants around the American Canyon area where I got dinner at as well. There are also some hotels slightly closer to Touro that a number of my classmates stayed in. I flew in and out of San Fransisco Airport and rented a car since I’m from out of state, although the Oakland Airport is closest to the school. 

A few things to know: The school is on Mare Island so the only way to access the campus is on a bridge. There are two bridges that access the island, however, the larger of the two bridges (the CA-37 bridge) is normally rather backed up with morning traffic, and the smaller of the two bridges goes up periodically to allow for ships to pass. Although this doesn’t happen often, it can take about 10 minutes. I recommend planning accordingly for your commute to your interview by leaving extra time for traffic due to these bridges. If you are traveling from OAK or SFO airport or nearby cities that require you to take the 1-80E or 101 N, you will have to pay a toll. The tolls only accept cash, so make sure you have cash otherwise you will receive a ticket! The tolls are anywhere from $5-$8. Also, the tolls can cause a lot of traffic.

 

Additionally:

We will be holding an informal Meet and Greet on Monday 11/26, at 6:30pm at the Mare Island Brewery Company (located at 289 Mare Island Way, Vallejo, CA). This is completely optional and will give you a chance to meet current students in the program as well as other interviewees. Hopefully it will help get rid of some nerves before your interview. If you're interested please take this quick survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/73RFCKH. We look forward to seeing you there!

Thank YOU very much current PA/MPH students for taking the time to meet and welcome us to your program!!! It means a lot to me, and to many other candidates, that you would stay after your final exams to give us an informal introduction to your school and program. I had a wonderful experience and want to wish you the very best of success as PA students and PAs in the making! Happy Holidays to you!!!

I received a call today for the 12/11 interview saying I have a packet coming! Super excited!! 🙂

I just logged on to share the same news.i recieved the call at around 5pm PST.

Today feels like the first day of the rest of my life! Touro has always been my top choice and to receive the call today almost made me start crying (but I was at work so that would have been weird, ha). 

I had a great interview group and couldn’t have done it without each and everyone of you! Group A2 for the win!

I submitted my supplemental in early October and did not get invite for interview till early December.  So I would imagine you guys will be hearing back soon.

I got an invitation for a supplemental application today as well! So late in the game though, I submitted my app months ago. Does anyone know how long it would take for them to get back to you for a possible interview invite?
