North Carolina Campbell PA applicants 2019-2020 upcoming cycle

Recommended Posts

Hello! I thought I would create a new group discussion since the upcoming cycle will be opening in about 2 months. This will give an opportunity for anyone to ask questions early in the application process and hopefully all the way through the interview process.

Do you remember of what the supplemental application consisted?

I don't remember what it consisted of sorry.  I do remember having to take the CASPer test last year.  It consists of videos you watch and have to answer questions and there were some written out scenarios as well and having to answer questions.  I did not study for that test as it is more about just being honest in how you would handle situations.  All of my scenarios were non-medical ones but the overall scenarios are what I would describe as real world ones.  Believe you can go to the CASPer home page to learn more about the test.

I do not remember exactly what was on the supplemental application, I remember it was easy though, basic information I believe....and it was a separate fee of $50. The CASPer also was pretty easy and straight forward. Scenario-based ethical sort of questions like Pacman PA mentioned, no studying required for it. You can google/youtube that for more info. I think it is $25 also and is only offered twice a month online. If I remember correctly once you apply to Campbell, they will send you an email link to sign up for the test.

Hey Packman PA! I applied to Campbell last year and was rejected. I applied for their Hprep program in May and just received a rejection from that. I am from the midwest, not the coast. Is that important to them? Campbell is my #1 school but I don't want to waste my time applying again if they can't even accept me for the HPrep. Did you get any insight as to what really mattered to them during interviews?

Hey AAschwaegel,

I’m sorry to hear about your rejections.  I know for a fact there are some in my class from Utah,Texas and florida so in state does not matter to them.  They were suppose to have a web q&a I believe today where you could log on and ask questions and get answers from the school.  Sorry I don’t have the link and believe it’s 4-5 est but don’t quote me on that.  I myself got rejected from Campbell the first time and just took more post bac science courses to help my gpa and drive to learn medicine.  I took pathophysiology and endocrinology.

Packman PA do you mind if I ask your patient hours and type? Prereq gpa?

 

George,

My patient hours were from the Air Force as a medic/medical lab tech over 4 years active duty back in 92-96.  I then did volunteer hours at the ER.   My prerequisite gpa was roughly a 3.8.   Feel free to ask me anything else.

I myself will be commuting from raleigh but know a lot of students are getting apartments near the campus about 15-20 mins away.  Not sure if any have a dog but I’m sure some of the places allow dogs just have to pay pet fee

Wow, I'm glad this thread has gotten started! I'm thinking about applying to Campbell as an out-of-state option. Does anyone know how many out-of-state spots Campbell offer out of the 54 seats? I tried looking on their site but couldn't find any stats of sort.

As far as I know there is no certain number they stick to when it comes to out of state students.  I know of a few in my class starting in July that are from Utah, Texas, Florida to name a few and sure there are more.  If I were you I would just see if your current stats are close to the class profile.  Feel free to ask me any questions and will help if I can.  Good luck

How was the open house last night?

I liked it, definitely informative about the program and faculty really spent a lot of time taking questions from students.

      Hello all,
      First time posting here. I am currently a PA-S2 with an expected graduation date of July 2020. I’m unsure about my career after graduating from PA School, and was wondering about any benefits that may come with joining the military after I become certified. Any and all information regarding life/work in specific branches is greatly appreciated as I have no information on the topic as of now.
      Thank you!

      I wanted to know if anyone could add any input on this; 
      I had requested a PA for a letter of evaluation. He was happy to agree to give one. I also had sent him a copy of my resume just because I thought that was the appropriate thing to do. 
      last week at work him had mentioned two things... he had brought it up to me that I didn't have my GPA posted on my resume and asked if if I was planning to put it on my resume. he also started asking me things like "do you want me to just not address GPA at all then?". So, for the copy of the resume I had sent to her, I didn't put my GPA in because I didn't think it was going to be helpful (my undergrad is a 3.35 which is not competitive) The whole purpose of sending him a 1 page resume was so that he could know a little more of what I have done in undergrad; like, have a little more amount of information of who I am outside of scribing. (I've been a scribe for about 9 months; about 5 of those months have been heavily involved with this particular PA, so although we haven't had many conversations personally its not like I am a stranger to him 
      The other thing that he requested is if I had personal statement finished. I will sincerely admit, I am quite behind on the application process as my personal statement still has work to do; I told him it's still being written. He asked if she should have a summary of it or something like that so he has more details to flesh out his evaluation letter. 
      I told her I would email her about the GPA issue and the personal statement summary because he was asking out loud in front of the other doctors and employees in the nurses station and I was a little shy to answer. I don't know why, but I wasn't expecting him to ask those questions.
      So here is what I was asking: 
      1. Should I have 3.35 on my resume at all? (I was a public health major)
      2. Is giving a personal statement/summary super necessary for you LOR evaluators? Because I really have alot more to do on my PS so I'm not sure how I can make a good summary in a short amount of time to give him; as well as the other evaluators.

      Hello! I know this post is stereotypical and repetitive and I apologize, but feedback would be very appreciative 🙂 Stats are below, should I apply this cycle? Or wait till next year? I’m currently on my first gap year. 
       
      cGPA: 3.7, sGPA 3.6 bio major with minirs in psych and chem, in 3 national honor societies (psych, bio, chem), academic award in my major, Dean’s list every semester
       
      Presented original research at 2 colleges
       
      By mid march I will have about 1000 PCE hours as an EMT
       
      I also started a per diem HCE job as a patient sitter in the ED. 
       
      GRE is between 295-299 (can’t remember exact number), thinking of retaking
       
      If it helps, during college I have about 120 hours as a volunteer crew member for my school’s EMS unit
       
      If I’m forgetting something, let me know! Again thanks so much, I know how annoying these posts can be sometimes and I appreciate you taking the time to read this 🙂 have an awesome day!

      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. :)
      Rachel
