North Carolina Campbell PA applicants 2019-2020 upcoming cycle

Hello everyone! I submitted my application and supplemental well over a month ago and haven't received word that my file is complete. Has everyone who has submitted received some sort of email?

I submitted back in May and never got an email stating my file was complete, didn't realize I should have gotten one until I saw people on here discussing it. I then spent about a week and a half trying to get ahold of someone there about it. They didn't return my emails and no one answered my calls for several days. Finally got ahold of someone and then they finally sent me my confirmation just a few minutes later. 
 

Kind of frustrated because I applied so early and then still missed out on the first interview date because of the error, which I'm sure puts me at a slight disadvantage. But I got an interview invitation for 8/21, so I still have a chance!

Do you guys know how many people interview per session usually?

I interviewed last year and there were around 30 candidates at mine if I recall correctly.

Ultimately disappointing because I didn't get in! But the experience itself was good. Everyone seemed very nice and it was a pretty relaxed environment - no one was trying to trick you or trip you up. They seemed to just want to get to know you and see how you interact with your (potential) colleagues.

Did your "confirmation email" just say "Thank you for applying to the Campbell University physician assistant program" in the subject line? Got that email but haven't heard anything else.

Does anyone remember what the interview format was like/what it consisted of?

 

Thank you!

Yes the confirmation email is different. I actually reached out to the school recently, and they sent me a confirmation email about an hour later. A little frustrating but at least they replied in a timely manner.

I ended up having to do the same thing, frustrating! Hopefully it doesn't affect our chance to interview.

I didn't receive a confirmation email so I tried emailing and did not get a response. I called admissions and he was super helpful and confirmed that they had my full application and would make sure it's reviewed.

I’m on the same boat as you were.. what phone number were you successful with? I haven’t been able to reach anybody over the phone or email which is so frustrating

I just received my interview invitation for Sept 6. Is anyone else attending that interview? The interview is from 11:30 am - 4 pm - does that mean that interviews are done by 4 pm or that the last interview is at 4 pm?

Does the program start in July 2020?

Wanted to say good luck to the people interviewing tomorrow. I’m a current student and can say Campbell is an amazing program and the interview process is not stressful at all.

Can you share what the interview style was like? Did they ask questions to get to know you personally or was it knowledge-based questions?

Yeah totally. I think I just googled allied health sciences there and was transferred over to the PA school department from someone else. From there, I stated my name and he checked while I was on the phone. I haven't heard anything since then but it's good to know that the application is complete and under review!

They ask questions to get to know you and a chance for you to get to know Campbell too.  It’s an amazing program and faculty.

Thank you!

 

I interviewed on the 9th. We had a big information meeting with all the applicants then split up into groups of 6-8 students I think (my group had 6). We had a tour of the campus, informational meeting about what sets Campbell apart, a group activity, and then a 2-1 interview (2 faculty, 1 interviewee). Ultimately the day was pretty relaxed and the staff was awesome. They seem to genuinely care about their students and they just want to get to know you during the interview process. I was nervous because it was my first interview but it was very relaxed and is nothing to stress about!

Hi!! 

I’m trying to get a flight to Campbell for the interview on Friday, 9/6. The brief interview invitation email said it was from 11:30a-4p. I’m trying to get a flight back the same day for my cousin’s wedding that evening. Do you recall if the interview day ended at 4 or did the last interview start at 4? From what you’re saying, it sounds like everything ends at 4p. 

 

Thanks in advance 🙃

      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!
