I haven't seen anyone talk about the interview format yet. I just went to the interview so I thought I'd share the love for those who have yet to interview, and for people looking at his forum next year. There are three 15 minute interviews, the question and styles of the interview depend on the interviewer. The questions I was asked skewed heavily on the behavioral side with only a few traditional questions. Below is a link to a list of the members of the admissions committee, you will be interviewed by three random staff on the Faculty. There is a written portion that tests some basic medical knowledge and some behavioral skills. The day starts with ice breakers and a tour of the building by two current PA students. Then there is a powerpoint presentation given by some of the faculty. Then everyone is split into two groups. One group goes into interviews first, the second does the written portion, then they swap. Each of the faculty have a different speciality, and their personality and questioning aligns pretty well with their speciality and role in the program.

Best of luck to everyone who has interviewed and to those who will be interviewing! There are still a lot more interviews that will be held so don't give up if you haven't heard back yet.

Thanks for the info! If you don't mind me asking, were you impressed with what you saw during your visit, and do you see yourself attending this program if accepted?

Hi there thanks again for the info ! For the behavioral questionarre, would you say it was more of "think of a time/example" or was it more of "situational/ethical"?

I wouldn't lose hope !! July is the first month they are interviewing and they still have a couple months to go. They send out an invite only like a week-ish prior. So there is still plenty of time 🙂

Hi! I was wondering if anyone knew if the program offered to hold baggages for applicants who are flying out on the same day as their interview? Thank you!
