Hi all! Congrats to those who interviewed! Everyone else who is waiting, be patient. I interviewed at Drexel on July 25th and it was very laid back. They told us decisions would be sent out anywhere from four weeks up until March. It is a daunting process, but all we can really do is wait.

 

Best of luck to everyone 🙂

For those who interviewed already, are there student interviews or only faculty? Thanks!

The interviews are with faculty, but you talk with students during the tour and while you're waiting to interview. Even though you're not officially interviewing with students, I think it's best practice to be "on" all day. I wouldn't be surprised if they ask the students for feedback!

Hello! 

I have my interview coming up August 15th. For those that have already interviewed, are there any reading or additional information sent to us that could be used for the writing sample? Every school I have interviewed at has been general interview type questions for the writing portion, but I just want to make sure I am not missing anything on my e-mails that I should be reading prior to interview day. I have heard that some programs will send out an article to read. 

THX!

When did you submit and get verified? And when did you hear back about your interview?

I would say just bring a pen, an ID, and an umbrella (part of the tour is outside). They don't ask for resumes, but I brought a couple copies for my own peace of mind.

You can get by without one, but I also brought a padfolio to take notes, write down the names of the folks I wanted to send thank you notes to, and to hold some business cards!

I have done 2 interviews already and did not bring resumes at all. If they want you to have them they will say so in the email with interview info. Usually they have everything in front of them from your application at the interview! Good luck and I'll see ya on the 15!

I am so anxious to find out if I have been accepted. Have anyone else got a phone call acceptance besides gjr428? The waiting time is making me desperate.

      Thanks for taking the time to read this ! So I graduated from university with a cumulative GPA of 3.2 and a science gpa of 2.85. I’ve been working full time as a patient care tech at a hospital to get my hours (so far I have around 1500) and volunteering as well. At this point, I understand that my stats are no where near competitive enough to get me into PA school, and retaking courses might be the better option. However, a few courses won’t raise my gpa. Would it make sense to do an accelerated bsn program instead ? It would be a significantly larger amount of credits, and I would at least have a job to fall back on, or even a second option (np school) if I don’t get into PA school. The only downside is the cost of the accelerated bsn program. However, if I work for a year, I should be able to pay it off and get a more “robust “ PCE.

      I know this is mainly a "contact the school" issue, but I'm wondering is anyone has ever had a problem with programs accepting a combined organic chem and biochem course? I just found out one of them won't allow it after I applied 😞

      I’ve recently been offered a position as a dialysis tech in an outpatient center. I shadowed the other day and the staff seamed friendly. My main duties would be weighing patients, cannulating them and setting up the machines, drawing labs, and monitoring their vitals throughout treatment. This all would be under the supervisions of an RN. I would work 8 and 10 hour shifts. I was hoping someone who has worked as a dialysis tech or knows someone who has could give me feedback about their experiences. I do already have 2 years experience volunteering as an EMT-A on a fairly busy service and plan on continuing to do so.  
       
      I have also been invited to interview for a medical assistant position at an urgent care, but the interview is after the deadline to decide if I’m going to accept the dialysis position. 
       
      The pros I see in working as a dialysis tech: Getting to know my patients and their cases. Experience in the chronic disease side of medicine. 
       
      Cons: It’s could be repetitive work and I would really only learn about kidney disease.
