2019 - 2020 Application Cycle

Recommended Posts

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!

You wont get those kinds of questions here.  It is strictly knowledge on the profession, personality, and professional behaviour.  You just be yourself and think about it.

When you called to confirm your interview did they call you back? I’ve now left two voicemails since Friday to confirm a date and have yet to hear anything acknowledging that I have confirmed for one of the two dates given. It’s now at the 72 hour mark as well so I want to make sure it’s confirmed before they rescind my offer. When I call no one answers.

Nikki did call me back. Are you sure the number you had was correct? I ask because the number extension I was given in the email was missing a number so I ended up calling the front desk and asking for her that way. I left a voicemail and she called me pretty quickly after that

Yes I went back to previous email exchanges to confirm the extension because I noticed the same thing on the invitation email. I don’t want to be obnoxious with all of my phone calls, but 2 voicemails on Friday, called twice on Saturday and once more today. No answer. I will try again later. Thank you for your quick reply!

Hi all! 

I received my acceptance email on 9/20 after interviewing on 8/21. They said it would take about 4 weeks from interview date to hear back. 

Good luck to everyone!

Looking forward to meeting y’all!

Honestly, the interview was by far my most favorite one that I’ve had out of all the schools I’ve interviewed at. They do their very best to make you feel at ease and relaxed. Be confident and yourself. You’ll do great.

Hey, I'll be applying in the next cycle. I was looking at their website and it says that they accept grade forgiveness for pre reqs. How do they recalculate your GPA if you have retaken a class? Would that be on the supplemental application?

I had 2 gentlemen who I thought were very nice and relaxed and I thought they interviewed everyone.

Very nervous to hear back from my interview as I feel it could have went better. Did anyone who was accepted feel like their panel interview wasn’t great?

Sorry to hear that! I really enjoyed the people who I interviewed with. I really felt as if they were just getting to know me better, and wanted to make sure I was a good fit for the program. I’m sure you did just fine! Deep breaths!

I applied a little later than I hoped to and now I am worrying I kinda shot myself in the foot because of that. Does anyone know if there are more interview dates?
