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!!! 

Hi,  congrats! Do you mind elaborating on what this writing sample is exactly?

Yes, there is a written portion in the interview section. But I won’t worry too much about it. There’s no right or wrong answer in this section

If 11/16th is the last and I haven't heard from them. Should I assume that I am out of the game? I haven't heard anything from the school. Feeling a bit down

I'm feeling the same. I'm trying to stay positive and hope I'll hear for the 11/16 session. Best of luck!

Hey everyone! I was wondering if any of you that got accepted from the 10/18 interview gave your deposit? I clicked on the link from the acceptance email but it asks for the QU ID. I haven't received the information packet in the mail yet. Did you guys already receive the info packet or submit the form without the QU ID? Thanks 😁

Nope I haven’t paid the deposit either, still waiting on that packet too. Good thing we still got plenty of time.

      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!

      Hello, 
      In my pre-pa club a member asked a question about surgery for PA’s. The question was “Is it true that in order to assist in surgery you need to do an extra year of schooling after your PA program? Do this require you to pay more for school? Is this included in your PA schooling years or would you need to reapply for that surgical year?” 
      I thought it was an excellent set of questions, which I would like more answers for.

      I thought I’d start this since I didn’t see any posts about this application cycle yet. Has anyone heard back besides the normal “we received your application” email?

      Hello, 
      I’m currently taking a gap year and preparing to apply for PA school when CASPA opens up in April 2020. I have a question regarding direct patient care hours. I’ve been working as a home-health CNA for the past 3 years, racking up 2000+ hours. With that being said, I’ve always had this anxiety eating away at me that home-health CNA’s are looked down upon in the terms of what they’re able to do as opposed to CNA’s working in SNF, hospitals, etc. 
      I’m often misrepresented as a home-health aide even though I have my CNA license. I’m always afraid this will hinder me when applying to PA programs simply because I’m viewed as more of a “maid” than a healthcare professional. However, I do more CNA tasks than what people assume. I have bed ridden clients I care for, I have clients that require lifts, and I have clients that are on ventilators. On the other hand, I do have my fair share of clients that are on respite care and my time is solely spent there as a comforter and person to talk to. 
       
      At a recent open house for a PA school I’m interested in, I voiced my concern for this and they assured me that it’s quality over quantity and as long as I was caring for someone it would suffice them. However, that’s just one of the many schools I’m interested in. With this being said, I also have some volunteer hours working as a CNA in a free clinic in my hometown where I’m doing more of the assessing and treating PA schools are looking for. However, majority of my hours are from my CNA job. 
       
      I chose home health because I knew the company I was going to work for was very flexible with hours and I needed that while I was in college. I’ve been with them for so long and grew so close to patients that I haven’t thought about leaving and going to a hospital or SNF to get more/different exposure. 
       
      I guess my question for anyone reading this is: would you consider my home health CNA job direct patient care?
