Thank you! I don’t know about the rejection notifications. During the interview day the director mentioned something about being notified up to 3 months from now. Not sure if that applies to both acceptances and rejections? Sorry, wish I had more information! Good luck!

For those verified around 9/4, have you heard anything... either a rejection or interview? All I see on this forum are applicants who applied very early in the game. I was wondering if any of the later applicants had any feedback for me! Thanks 😁

It was two interviews that were either 1v1 or 2v1 and then one group interview and a writing sample, they definitely try to make sure you feel as comfortable as possible while you are there!!!

I rented a car just for convenience, but it depends on your preference though. If you can get Uber to be there as early as you want, I don’t think it’s a bad idea.

It’s not MMI but a typical one-on-one interview style, two sections with 2 or 3 faculty members per section. It’s a very relaxed and they do everything to make you feel relax and less tense. I will encourage you to go for the informal meet-and-great, it’s very resourceful. I hope this is helpful. Let me know if I can be of a further assistance. I wish you the best of luck. 

Someone has said that there is a writing sample. Did you have a writing sample?

      Hello,
      I am currently struggling to decide which field I want to pursue ( Master's in Health Administration  vs Physician Assistant). I want to interact with patients but I also want to focus on managing hospitals and program implementation. Do you guys have any suggestions on what I can do that could expose my to both of my interests or if one has a higher job demand than the other? Any feedback is appreciated!

      HI Folks,
      I am currently in the second year of my contract, i have a bachelors degree in engineering but thats from asia.
      I am an active duty army 68W medic currently working at an army hospital.
      Question i have is that, i was going through lots of PA schools everywhere they say that the degree should be from an university in USA.
      So is it not possible to get into any of the PA programs when i get out of military in couple of years without a bachelors  degree from america?
      What can i do to improve my chances to get into any of the PA programs?
      I checked these schools as a sample.
      University of Iowa
      University of Colorado
      To be honest i dont care about the location once i get out, but wanted to know whats the way forward ?

      I worked as a PRN rehab technician for about 3 months (roughly 20 hours a week) before I became Full-Time (40 hours a week).  How do I record this change in hours? Do I make two separate entries or average the hours per week?  My hours for PRN also varied each week, with weeks working up to 30 hours and sometimes only 15 hours. Do I need to record this somehow? I also do not understand how PA schools validate that the numbers of hours stated are honest. Is there some sort of validation document needed from each employer from past jobs.  Any advice is appreciated, thank you!

      Hey all,
      I am currently a 1st year graduate student for athletic training. I am looking into become a PA. Looking to withdraw from my program to pursue PA prerequisites but not sure if this was a good idea. Or if I should complete my program then complete prerequisites. Thanks!
