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 🙂

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.

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!

Congratulations! Let me know if you have any questions!

Does anybody know if CASPer is still a requirement this year? I applied last year and it was, however I no longer see anything about CASPer on Campbell's website. 

CASPer is no longer a requirement!

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”

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!

      Hey y'all so I am a sophomore in undergrad and in the process of just starting to get PCE, shadow, and volunteer hours and etc, but I am super stressed out because I am itching to start getting PCE hours except its so difficult while in school. I was thinking about becoming an EMT and working for 2 years after I graduate but I wasn't sure if being an EMT is considered PCE among most colleges, does anyone know? (I also tried to work as a caregiver over summer and that job isn't for me) 
       
      Also, I'm trying to compile a list of PA schools to apply to, so if anyone has any recommendations for schools on the east coast please let me know! 🙂

      Hey everyone, there are still tickets available for those who are interested in the Loma Linda PA program. We have changed our event from zoom to being ON CAMPUS. There will be prizes raffled off. Due to some restrictions still being in place, the tickets that are being sold will only allow one person per ticket. More info on the flyer and event bright website. Thank you so much! Hope to see you there. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/llus-3rd-annual-pre-pa-conference-tickets-145958073527

      Hi all, 
      I'm a new grad starting out in ambulatory surgery-- I'm super excited because I love being hands on in the operating room. I was just wondering if any of the Surgical PAs could give some insights about ambulatory surgery? The site I'm going to be working at has 12 surgical subspecialities (list below). From what I gathered through the interview process, I'll be able to get experience in all of them. That being said I'm worried about being prepared and knowledgeable for cases. Anyone have any tips of how to study up, or even get more comfortable once starting? I have a little over a month before start date so any resources are welcome. Thanks in advance!
      List of subspecialities/ topics to brush up on🤯🥴: 
       
      Bariatric surgery
      Breast surgery
      Colorectal surgery
      General surgery
      Head and neck surgery
      Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery
      Neurosurgery
      Ophthalmologic surgery
      Orthopedic surgery
      Pediatric surgery
      Podiatric surgery
      Sports medicine surgery
      Urologic surgery
      Vascular surgery

      Hi all. Our EM practice is in the works of developing a head PA/NP position (manager in a sense). Currently we have a liaison who is a physician-but the physician wants to turn it over to the APPs. Since this is a new trial process for our group, I wanted to reach out and see what the job description and stipend/benefits your group gives to the PA/NP who is essentially "in charge" of the APPs at your practice. If you could tell me the type of practice you work in, location (state), job description for head APP (rough expectations), and stipend/benefits for that position I would greatly appreciate it.
