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 🙃

If I remember correctly, the day wasn’t done until about 4:15-4:20. That said, our Q&A session at the end of the day with current/former students could have gone a little longer than planned 🙂

I was also offered a seat this morning! So excited!

The day ended about 4:15 as mbartausky said. The former/current students talked a little longer than they were supposed to but it was all very helpful. I think you may be cutting it close but could possibly make a flight that evening!

Just got the call from Wes! Been accepted to the PA/MPH program!!

Congratulations! I am in the dual program right now - you will love it! Public health is a lot of fun and gives a new perspective on health. Let me know if you have any questions. I think we probably met during interview day.

Usually the formal day is over by 3 and there is a student panel from 3-4. It’s probably not a huge deal if you have to leave the panel early if there are no other decent flights available. You can always reach out to Wes and ask him what he thinks is appropriate.

Hey! I'm also interviewing on 9/6!!!  Excited for you and excited for me! Hopefully we'll get to meet 🙂 

I called Wes today to follow up on my flight clarification, and he picked me up right away and advised me on what to do. He didn't mention anything about the more detailed interview email (I also didn't ask lol). I think we can follow up on Monday if there's no email by tomorrow.

Did you all get a confirmation email after Campbell received all of your materials? 

Hey, yes!

I sent in my CASPA app on May 15.

Received a confirmation email on July 18.
Email from Wes below:
"We would like to inform you that your file is now complete! We've received your CASPA application, supplemental application, and GRE scores. Faculty will be reviewing your application in the upcoming weeks to determine if you will be selected for an interview.  Please keep in mind that if you are still working on the completion of the required prerequisites or healthcare experience, you must plan to complete these requirements by December 31, 2019. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions concerning your application. "

Received an interview invitation on Aug 8.

Does anyone know if Campbell has cadavers? Does anyone have any info on where they place you for rotations as well? I’ve just received an interview for the 6th and I’m trying to gain as much info as possible. Thank you guys for any insight. I am incredibly happy 🙂

Matt24,

Im a current first year and can say yes we do use cadavers for our anatomy lab.  They are already prosected by the PT students so this allows us more time to study and learn and don’t need to do any of the dissection.  As for rotations I’m not sure exactly but was told they are in N.C. and if you say we’re to live in raleigh. They try and make the sites within about a hour drive.  But I’m not sure of the exact details.  Good luck and congrats on getting an interview

You might want to call the phone number on their website to ask about getting a confirmation email. I think this happened to a couple of people on here including myself.

 

Confirmation email has a different subject line than below.

“Thank you for applying to the Campbell University PA Program”

Submitted 5/15, calld today regarding never receiving a confirmation email, and received one an hour ago. I'm slightly concerned that this means my app hasn't been considered thus far despite me submitting in may. 😞

Going to interview on 9/6 and am trying to get my hotel + transportation in order as I am from Florida. Can anyone give me any insight about this?  Probably will fly into RDU and then i guess Uber to the hotel and to the interview? The building where the interviews are held is about an hour from the airport. Does anyone have any insight on helpful transportation methods or hotel suggestions?

Hey, congratulations! I’ll also be attending the 9/6 interview 🤗 My name is PQ and hopefully we’ll get to connect there! 

I'm flying into RDU from Chicago on 9/5 and am staying at an Airbnb in a nearby town that’s 15-20 mins away. I chose a closer location to the school (as opposed to the airport) because 1) I wanted to check out the area to see if I can see myself here; 2) the short commute will be a smart idea to avoid running late due to traffic or any anomaly. I rented a car for transportation. I’ll only be there for a day or two and it’ll be more convenient to run on my time versus Uber. 

I hope this helps!

I know its late in the cycle but I finally submitted to Campbell a few days ago. I was wondering if anyone with similar stats to mine has received an interview. I will be using the last 60 hrs calculation because my overall is under 3.2. I have a 3.97 last 60hrs GPA which includes almost all prereqs except A&P 1 and Stats, I took them prior. I have 14,000+ hours of PCE as a Lead paramedic, over 1,000 volunteer hours. A's in all prereqs (including genetics) except a B in stats. Hoping its not too late!

      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!
