Hi everyone!  I am a current student in the PA program at MSJ! We are very excited about this interview season!  For those who have already interviewed, I hope it went well!  And for those with interv

Wish they would give us an official date to look forward to... ?

I received an interview for 9/21 as well a week ago or so.

Everyone I've spoken to about the school says it's a fairly esteemed school, though I assume they're mainly talking about undergrad (I don't know anyone who actually went there, for what it's worth). From what I understand, they have a well established nursing program, and all the staff seem to be very experienced. It's a little concerning that it's such a new school, but I'm willing to check them out at the interview.

Hi everyone!  I am a current student in the PA program at MSJ! We are very excited about this interview season!  For those who have already interviewed, I hope it went well!  And for those with interviews soon to come, good luck!  

We are a new program, my cohort just started our third semester.  MSJ has a great reputation with their health sciences programs, which is why I personally felt comfortable choosing to attend the school, despite it being new.  The faculty genuinely cares about our success and are willing to make daily improvements, I have no doubt MSJ will continue to progress to produce competent PAs!

As for interview info, we use MMI format - there are resources available in other threads with more info on the format!  I thoroughly enjoyed the process, and found it to be fairly laid back.  As cliche as it sounds, just be yourself and you will be fine!  

Feel free to ask any questions you may have about the program and I'll do my best to answer in a timely manner!

Hi! I have an interview coming up at MSJ and I’m extremely interested in attending the program! 

Do you remember how the interview day runs and how long it took to hear back from admissions about their decision? Also do you recommend bringing any hard copies of any documents like resume or LORs to the interview? 

 

Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks!

You will receive a schedule for the day when you arrive, it will last about 4 hours.  Your interview invite will include a list of documents to bring including: a photo ID and a copy of your transcripts. All other documents should be included in your CASPA application.  Good luck on your interview!

Hello,

Is the interview an individual MMI or group MMI?

What do you feel about the interview? Was it more difficult as it was a MMI style?

I was nervous at first but I ended up really enjoying it. The questions asked during the MMI were not difficult. The faculty walks you through the process and will let you know when time is up but you do not need to use up the time. They give you a lot of opportunity to ask questions so come prepared. Good luck ?

you will have 5 individual MMI format questions. I promise it's not as intimidating as it sounds!

An email I received also mentioned an essay portion. I’m not sure if you can say much about the details but I’d appreciate any advice or what we can expect.

Has anyone heard back from the past interviews? 

Not yet...I thought our group was told we’d hear back by now (either way) so I’m not really sure what to expect on timing. I’m hoping we hear something soon, I feel like I’m in a suspended state waiting to move forward either way. Good luck to you!

      Hello everyone!
      My name is Kou-Lai and I am actually an undergraduate student who has an interest in becoming a Physician Assistant. I am doing a project for one of my class and I have to interview a professional about their community. More specifically, we are focused on how different communities use different languages and writings to communicate to each other. I will be using your answers as part of my project (in the form of a presentation), but will remain anonymous. 
      Please help me and Answer as freely as you would like. I really appreciate it!
       
      1.      Do Physician Assistants communicate with other Physician Assistants, or people of other profession, often? How often do you communicate with other people during your day (even on your days off)?
       
      2.      In what ways are you communicating with other professionals? Writing? etc? Are there specific ways you address, speak, or write to other professionals?
       
      3.      What about non-professionals? If you meet students often, what differences do you see when speaking/writing to them compared to professionals?
       
      4.      When talking to patients/people outside the community, how do you do so? Do you use a different way of speaking to them?
       
      5.      What types of writing do PA professionals do on the job? Is everything (that is written) to be communicated? Or are they for any other purposes?
       
      6.      Are there special documents, forms, or papers that are unique to a professional in the PA field?  How do they relate to the PA community? What are some details that are usually included on the documents?
       
      7.      What is the most important type of document that a student should know/be able to produce? What special language or writing should a student use if they are interested in the PA career.
       
      8.      What is the best way a student can approach this community? How can they start learning how to speak or write in this profession?
       
      9.      Do you do research as part of the job? Do you do research outside the job? Is research part of the job?
       
      10.  Can you share samples of the documents you’ve told me about today?   If not do you know of links, or websites, or other resources that would provide me with samples?

      Hey everyone, I am putting together my application for the upcoming cycle. I am at the part where I am inputting my transcript and can't figure out how to classify some courses taken as part of my Health Sciences major which kind of 'umbrellas' subjects under health care.
      The course in question is: Marketing in Healthcare. 
      My dilemma is classifying this under either:
      Health Science Marketing Health Science Administration Please help 🙃

      Hello, this is my first time posting on this website and am hoping to get some help. I just made a profile on the CASPA website recently. When I went to look for these two programs I am interested in I could not find them. Do programs not show up until certain times during the year? Thank you in advance.

      When should someone create a CASPA application? It’ll be a couple years before I start applying as I’m still trying to get my pre-requisites under my belt. 
      I thought it’d be a good idea to start one now and add as I go along? Any thoughts?
