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.

Thank you, that's quite a few people! How did you feel about the experience?

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.

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.

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

 

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 🙃

      Hello fellow applicants,
      Last cycle was my first application to Campbell and this forum helped tremendously. Hopefully this will help someone again. 
      Best of luck!

      I had to retake one class my freshman year, and I really do not want to waste a few sentences in my personal statement to speak about it. Although, I also understand it is best to address it somewhere. Is there another place on CASPA to discuss shortcomings on your application? I do not see a place, but I want to make sure I am not missing something.

      I know Yale has an online pa program, what is a competitive applicant for Yale online? Also does anyone else have an online physician assistant program? 
       
      Thank you

      Hello everyone! I did not see a thread for the applications for Gannon University in Erie, PA? Has anyone applied as a post-baccalaureate student? They do have a 5 year combined bachelor's and master's program but I believe they accept a few students besides their undergraduate class.

      My name is Tessa and I am currently an MA at a dermatology clinic. I am aspiring to be a PA and will be applying during the next cycle. I have worked along side PAs for about 2 years now in dermatology and have experience working in a level 1 ED. However, I am looking for any PA shadow opportunity in Arizona that is not dermatology as I want to branch out and have an understanding of what PAs do in different fields. I live in Glendale but I am willing to travel anywhere in Arizona.
      If you are a PA or know a PA or any open opportunities feel free to reach out to me on here. 
      Thank you!
