Hi everyone, I was just given an interview for Nov 8th. I was wondering if anyone that has already interviewed can provide any information as to how the day was? The schedule for the interview day, how the atmosphere felt, etc! Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Sure.

Overall GPA: 3.89

Science GPA: 3.42

Patient Care Hours: over 4000 in dental hygiene

CASPer: Taken and submitted

I asked them to provide feedback so I can improve my application for next cycle and they just sent me this general attachment (which is not helpful by any sense) in the email stating that they have received over 500 applications and they can only accept 30 students.

I got rejected too!

cGPA: 3.52

PCE: over 7,000 as a respiratory therapist

I wanted to email them also and ask what the reason was, but since you said they are sending out a general email, I won't.

How long did it take you to hear back from the school? I haven't heard anything yet and I am kind of freaking out!

I cant believe it took so long for them to get back to you. On paper you sound pretty good. Was your sGPA close to cGPA?

Does anyone know if they have rolling admissions? 

From the sound of it, I believe they are telling people yay or nay as they interview people.

They do not have rolling admissions. I just had my interview. They will send out acceptances in December you do not find out immediately.

How was the interview process? Did it really only take 30 minutes?

Yes. I got there 20 minutes early and just waited until my turn. They were very nice and hospitable. My Interview was only 25 minutes and I was talking the entire time. There wasn’t hardly any conversation between us during the interview (like some other interviews I’ve had where they interact with you). So be prepared to sell yourself.

      Hi everyone!
       
      My name is Rachel and I am an upcoming PA student starting in May 2019 at USF's PA program in Tampa, Fl.
      I got my clinical experience first working as an EMT for an ambulance company, but later switching to being a medical assistant for a private practice dermatology experience in Plant City, FL (about 30 min from Tampa). I gained such valuable knowledge from both jobs! I currently still work for the derm practice, but will be leaving when I attend PA school. I just wanted to reach out to the pre-PA community because I'm sure there are a number of you who are looking to get clinical experience, and I wanted to see about giving the opportunity to someone who could gain valuable experience from this position. and FYI you do not need a medical license for this job, they do on the job training. I work here with the doctor as well as the PA. 
       
      If you're interested, let me know and I'm happy to answer any questions and put you in contact with my office manager. :)

      I am a Biology/Pre-PA major Junior in college. I am in ROTC and participate in many extracurricular within ROTC, so I am ranked well. I am looking for advice on my chances for getting into PA school. I don't have many preferences for a PA school, my life dream has just always been to save lives within the medical field. At the time of applying for PA school I will have a 3.1-3.3 GPA, around 1000 hours as an ED medical scribe, and I worked as a pharmacy technician for a year. 
      Most of my credibility outside of my GPA is ROTC which takes up a decent chunk of time which I am hoping will say something for my application. I have yet to take the GRE but plan on doing well since I will need the extra buff. I also attended basic camp and advanced camp if that helps my application at all.
      What are my chances for getting into PA school and is there any advice that I can be given for my future success in the medical field. Thank you.
      Very Respectfully,
      Nick
