Hi, is your interview for the Worcester campus? I tried calling to see if I would be able to move up my interview but I was told there was no interview session scheduled for that day

Hey everyone! I got accepted for the 2020 cohort but I was wondering if any of the people accepted received anything in the mail? I just got the email update with the portal being updated to accepted and I paid the deposit but it’s been three weeks since I was accepted and have not received any mail? They also keep sending emails to join the fb group but the only Facebook group is for 2019 cohort? Unsure of what to do at this point. I also called the school and they just told me to keep checking the portal for any updates. 

Hey there!! I did the same and it took almost a month for me to receive an acceptance package in the mail after I found out on the portal. I don't believe there is a FB group for us yet- they will probably wait until the spring to make one. So I think  their website is just redirecting us to the 2019 one for now 😞

Hey guys,

I applied to the PA program at MCPHS Manchester. I checked the school portal and it states that I am being waitlisted for an interview. Is anyone else waitlisted? I am so nervous. Is this bad news? I thought being waitlisted will only happened after having an interview.

For those wondering about the interview, it was relaxed and fun! Everyone was super friendly and helpful. Be nice to everyone, be yourself, and remember to breathe!

Thanks! Are you scheduled to interview? Good luck! It was super chill and everyone was very laid back. They ask hypothetical scenarios in the interview, so be prepared for that. No surprises if you are well prepared. Common scenarios that can present in a normal PA student or PA routine. Other than that expect the usual explanation of any apparent gaps, weaknesses or shortcomings in your resume.

Hey! I don’t know how the interview will be at the Manchester campus, but since they are both some kind of merged program they probably have the same setup. I remember one of the coordinators saying that if you are waitlisted, just remember to update your status in CASPA and the portal for pending classes. Good luck though. I’m sure spots will open, so just call the program and get updates.

Hi All! I interviewed on 1/31 in the afternoon session and was notified yesterday that I was accepted into the 2020 class of PA studies. I'm excited to meet my future classmates this June at admitted students day! Good luck to all those waiting for their interview or for their admission decision to be updated, the waiting process is brutal, but it's all worth it in the end!

Unfortunately I do not know the number of spots that have been filled, or if there’s a certain number of applicants they take from each interview session. Sorry, I’m not a better help with that question, good luck to you!

I brought a padfolio with my resume and a note pad to take notes during the day. I also had some questions I had written down to ask during my interview. My interviewer did not need my resume, but I thought it was helpful to have the questions I wanted to ask written down.
