Anybody interviewing on the 20th receive the detailed email yet?

Anxiously awaiting details with it being only 1 week away now! LOL

Hi! Just some practical advice from someone who interviewed the other day. They don't serve lunch until 3pm. Before that, they had granola bars, popcorn, and water, but as someone who needs her second dose of caffeine around noon, I was struggling. (If anyone is in this position, I did find a vending machine on the 4th floor that accepts credit cards!) I don't think I would have made it through my interview un-caffeinated! LOL. 

Also, go into this interview feeling completely relaxed. It was so low-key, and everyone there is genuinely friendly and interested in helping you.

Good luck 9/20 interviewees!  Campbell is a fantastic school.  Everyone is very nice and they make you comfortable.  I had the interview on Wednesday and was offered a seat yesterday; of course I gladly accepted.  If any of you have questions don’t hesitate to ask

Woohoo, Val! Congrats!

Hello! I will be attending the interview on 9/20 as well. I was just wondering what the style of interview was? Did they ask more general questions or more scenario type questions? I am so nervous! Congrats to all interviewing and all that have been accepted!! That is very exciting

Hey there, it is a 2:1 interview a faculty member and a clinician and one interviewee.  It is a relaxed atmosphere.  The committee is great and no one is there to intimidate you or make you feel uncomfortable.  Just be yourself during the interview.

Received an email today that they received my completed application. I put off getting the head shot photo sent in! Should hear something, hopefully, within the next few weeks! Congrats to everyone already accepted!

Thank you so much for the insight and kind words! I will surely need that caffeine boost. Out of curiosity, about how many students so you guys think are at each interview date?

There were 25 there this past week, but that may have been an unusual number given that the interview had been rescheduled from the previous week due to the hurricane.

Has anyone who’s interviewed already had success getting Uber’s from their hotels?

I interviewed last week and one of the interviewees got an Uber to the Microtel from the airport, but could not get an Uber back to the airport so I took her to the airport after the interview.

      I'm looking for PA shadowing opportunities in Dallas, Texas. I'm a 26-year-old Bachelors of Science in Biology graduate from the University of North Texas at Dallas pursuing a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies. I moved to Dallas when I was 15 years old from Tampico, Tamaulipas, Mexico and would like to do something with my life and what a beautiful thing to help people who need it most.
       
      Thank you in advance.

      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!
