Hi there! I am applying this upcoming cycle and was wondering if anyone knew the format of interviews? I understand it may vary from school to school (individual, group, panel. etc)....Thank you so much! 

Hi, you said it, its an individual and a group interview and a nice presentation from faculty, in no particular order.

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

I’m glad to hear it went well and I’m very excited to be starting this July.  Good luck applying and feel free to ask any questions.

is the CASPER test still required? I have to take it for other programs so I had already registered for Campbell, but then CASPER refunded me money saying that Campbell wasn't requiring it this year, but I think their website still says they notify you to take a situation judgement test. Just wondering if anyone knows

I know I had to take it last year when I applied and would suggest contacting Campbell directly to get clarification.  Best of luck this year applying

Hi everyone! Do we wait until we hear back from Campbell to do the CASPer test and submitting the supplemental? I submitted my CASPA application on May 2nd and have not recieved any emails. Just wondering if there was anything I needed to be doing in the mean time to be proactive. Thank you in advance!

rtan,

Last year when I was applying to Campbell I remember submitting the CASPer test and supplemental at the same time.  I wanted to complete the CASPer test as early as possible but did not complete it till end of July.  I received an interview invite in Oct and was accepted to start this July 31st.  Best of luck

At the open house they stated we DO NOT have to complete the CASPer test this year, although it is still listed as such on the website. There has been some admin changes and they have not been able to update this. However, you can access the supplemental app yourself on the website under apply and whenever. I applied over a week ago and have not heard anything either.

I believe Wes said it was like a trial and didn't go too well.

Hello everyone! This is a silly question but figured I'd give it a shot. The website states that there is a required minimum overall GPA of > 3.2. Does anyone know if this means you have to have above a 3.2 or can it be 3.2 AND above? I'm literally at 3.20 so I just want to make sure I'm qualified.

Thanks!!

For overall GPA, their website says: 

  • Required minimum overall and/or last 60 credit hours GPA > 3.2

So from what I understand, your overall GPA needs to be above 3.2. Since you're right at 3.2, calculate your last 60 credit hours. If that's over 3.2, you would be qualified to apply!

It is 3.2 and above from what I remember.  I myself will be starting my 1st year at Campbell in July.  Best of luck.

      So I finally got a job at my dream hospital!! I am currently working there as a Patient Care Technician/ PCT. However, I will be leaving for PA school next year. I really want to return to this hospital and work as a PA! The problem is that getting a job at my hospital is super competitive. Is there a way for me to ensure/ increase my chances of getting a PA job in this facility in the future?
       
      (Also, what do you guys think of requesting a absense of leave instead of quitting? Can I be able to come back to the hospital to pursue a higher position?)

      Thanks 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.
