I will say that they really try to make you feel very comfortable and it is a very laid back environment and staff. At least in my interviews 🙂

I agree with this! I was overall impressed with the program, I feel like they really prepare their students to be good PAs. 

My advice is try not to stress and have fun with it! It's very relaxed and everyone is super nice.

I thought about my answers to the most common types of questions PA schools ask, and I also thought about examples from my PCE/volunteering that I could tie in there. I also think it's helpful to read a PA interview book beforehand to get a feel for the types of questions/how you should answer them. I read "The Physician Assistant School Interview Guide" by Savanna Perry and thought it was helpful. 

Also, make sure that you practice answering questions with someone. If you have a PA you can practice with, even better. They will be able to point out if there's anything distracting about the way you answer questions/give you tips on what you can do better.

Overall, the faculty at Bridgeport was super nice, and I felt like they asked fair questions. Congrats on the interview and GOOD LUCK! 🙂

Hey all!

I was verified back in early May and still have yet to hear anything back. Does anyone know if they send out rejection letters? Trying to be patient but it is growing harder and harder with all the interview invites being sent out!
