Hi! Did you ever hear back??

 

Good luck! I'm sure you'll hear back soon! I have similar stats as you. Did you apply to a lot of other schools?

Thank you so much!  Same to you! I applied to 5 other schools. Haven’t heard from any yet. Fingers crossed for us both!!!

I haven’t heard back since June 😞 has anyone called them after the two week period?

I’m also waiting since June. When I emailed them, they said they reviewed my file and that a decision hasn’t been made. I guess that must mean we’re on the back end. Maybe they’re waiting to see how the interviews go with other people.

Congrats! I was just accepted as well on Monday but I will be declining as I was accepted somewhere closer to home. Hopefully that helps someone else on here!

Hey all. Congrats on your acceptances. I received a rejection email today referencing not meeting the minimum requirements. Honestly don’t know what I don’t meet but I’m sure they have their reasons (I’m going to call tomorrow). 

 

Good luck to to you all!

Anyone who has interviewed here already have any words of wisdom? Interview style? Any tips? Interviewing here soon and trying to prepare the best I can!

I would say, as counterintuitive as it seems, definitely do not over-rehearse your answers! In my experience, it's easy for your answers to come off disingenuous that way - even though you may be super authentic!

Good luck!!

For those accepted or interviewed already, did they mention anything about their accreditation status? I’m a little worried with it being in probationary.

The NCCPA says the following in their website under eligibility: 

PANCE ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

To be eligible for PANCE, you must graduate from a Physician Assistant program accredited by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). PA program graduates will be deemed to have graduated from an accredited program if their PA educational program was accredited at the time of their matriculation.

They will reiterate that at the interview. Don’t worry about this issue, you have plenty to worry about all the other stuff.

In the interview they do mention the probationary status. They explain why they received this status and what they are doing to fix it. Apparently they had some turn-over within the program. They also have you sign a document saying that you understand that they currently hold a probationary status.

I am interviewing Sept. 24th! This is my first interview so I am obviously super nervous and do not know what to expect. My friend who graduated from Madison PA program said in interviews they can throw some curve balls. She got asked, "what type of cereal would you be?". Would love any tips you want to throw my way! Cheers!
