Does anyone know if the individual interview with faculty in one on one or are there multiple faculty members?

It was a faculty member and an alumnus.

Also got the email a few days ago that I was waitlisted for an interview. In any case, I've accepted elsewhere, but many good vibes and luck to those waiting for an acceptance!

Hi! Got an invite for an interview 3 days ago. I had to choose January 31st date because of my work. I hope being one of the last ones to be interviewed won't be an issue! Looking forward to meeting everyone! Good luck!

Good luck to everyone who received interview invitations! If you are still in the process of getting an interview at MBKU, don't give up. Just keep strengthening yourself as a candidate by participating in community events (MBKU hosts social nights, PA application mentoring programs, mock interviews, etc as they're very involved with the community and that's what I love about the school), volunteering, getting more healthcare hours, etc. I would be happy to share what I know about MBKU/PA school applications if you want to DM me. 

 

Also, if anyone who's interviewing next month wants to get together/connect, please send me a message.

I will be coming from Houston, Texas for my interview. Anyone else coming in from out of state? Where is the nearest airport?

I will be coming from out of state as well. There is a travel information page on their website where we sign up for an interview date that has a lot of good information including nearby airports. Orange County John Wayne airport is the closest, but I decided to fly into Ontario International instead.

Does anyone know when the latest MBKU could inform someone from the waitlist that they are invited to an interview? And are the last set of interview days Jan 11 and Jan 31st?

Has anyone else who interviewed in Dec. 2019 heard anything back?  

I have not heard back since my interview in December. I guess we will hear back after the other interviews are finalized.

Hi Lauren,

Congratulations! I was accepted after the first round of interviews too and am really excited for the program to start. Feel free to message me through the forum. I haven't heard of any Facebook groups yet, I think it's still super early.

The rest of you that are still applying or waiting to hear back, hang in there! And as cliche as it is, my biggest advice is to be yourself and don't try to tell the interviewers what you think they want to hear.

Mine was one current PA faculty, and one current Optometry faculty. They were super nice and friendly! I love this school.

Just got off the waitlist for an interview! I will be interviewing January 31!

Congratulations! That's exciting to hear they are starting to pull from the waitlist. Has anyone else received an invite off the waitlist? Still hopeful..... 🙂

Giving this another try -

 

If anyone is going to interview at MBKU, have already interviewed, or wants to go to MBKU in the future and would like to get together in LA/OC, please send me a PM. If you're coming from out of town and need suggestions/help with anything, I can try my best to help you out as well. I know what it's like to be in a new town and trying to prepare for something as important as the interviews. Hope to hear from you guys!

      Hi! This fall I will commence my undergraduate studies at SUNY Cortland and I'm pretty concerned with being prepared for applying to PA programs, especially in regards to obtaining direct patient care hours. I was doing research and there are programs in which their accepted candidates average or will have even have more than 4,000 hours. This is quite the daunting task considering I plan to be a full-time student over the next four years.
      As of now, I plan on being involved in the campus EMS squad where I will receive training and will be required to serve a minimum of two 12-hour shifts per semester. However, I will aim to serve at least 1 of these shifts every week. Do these volunteer hours count as direct patient care hours? Additionally, the squad will pay for my EMT-B training throughout this upcoming year's spring semester if I agree to volunteer for them for the two semesters of my sophomore year. Thus, I will be able to at least volunteer as an EMT-B over the next few summers as well.
      Cortland Regional Medical Center is also a five-minute drive from the university, so I will most likely be able to shadow and volunteer here, but they are not a teaching hospital so they do not often have training experiences.
      So my overarching question is how am I supposed to get the hours I need by the fall of my senior year when application season begins? Will I most likely have to accumulate hours for another year after my undergrad? Furthermore, are there any other positions I can seek to display diversity within the hours I accumulate, and are there any other pieces of advice you can offer me as I begin to plan?
      Thanks for all the help!

      Hi all, 
      I did not see a link for the 2017-2018 cycle, so I figured I would start one here. Has anyone heard back from Baylor regarding applications? Good luck!

      I have been fortunate enough to be accepted into two programs and need some help making my decision! They are both relatively new CA programs.
       
      MBKU is on its fourth class and has 100% first year PANCE pass rate. Their program is very family/collaberative oriented. Great people, and great organization of curriculum. And they are currently remodeling a building for PA students' use. Downside is I do not care for the location (farther from family and the LA can be stressful for me), and they are predominately an optometry school.
       
      On the other hand, UoP just started the first year, no PANCE scores. But the staff is very distinguished and the school has proof of many other successful health care programs, you get some cadaver lab access, and the facilities are new and very high tech. Sacramento is also cheaper to live and closer to family. My main concern here is that the program is so new and still working out kinks. The class is also large (45) and I don't yet see that they promote as much of a family bond between students. 
       
      Generally I feel that MBK is a slightly better program, but UoP has a better location. Any advice is definitely welcome! If you had to make a decision between schools, how did you do it?
