2019-2020 UNE application cycle

Recommended Posts

I didn’t receive an interview invite, but I was then called/emailed about two weeks ago to remind me to RSVP for my date. I am not sure if it got sent to spam. I am going September 13th and for the social tomorrow night as well. Hope to see people there!

What did you guys think about the interview? Any advice?

Just be yourself, have situations mentally prepared and know your stuff about PAs.

I only had one 2-1 interview. Make sure you have questions to ask, be the best version of yourself, and enjoy the process!

There is an interview session on Oct. 18th as well. I'm not sure how many they will hold in total,  but the website indicates that rolling admission may continue through January. Good luck to everyone applying!

Because I was surprised on certain questions that they asked, I unfortunately do not want to disclose information that other people that aren’t on the forum won’t know. I feel I have given enough information in regards to the interview. Take “know your stuff about PAs” as much as you think it extends.

That is so great! Great to hear that the turn around time is so quick!

I am local to the area and I have a family so UNE is the ONLY school I am applying to. I have an interview on 10/18, and I am SO excited and nervous. I have a family and I am limited to UNE. My kids are 13 and 15 and moving is not an option. 

Someone from another post asked for stats? I have a 3.8 science GPA (BCP) (all in last 18 months) My original bachelors degree  (25 years ago) is a 3.12

 I have 300 hours as a phlebotomist, 1000 hours as a MA.

10,000 hours  in healthcare IT at Maine Medical Center. I had 20 shadow hours and 3 recommendations from PA's. I joined MEAPA to network with PA's in Maine as well.  I have 300 volunteer hours in a local detox over the course of 5 years (direct patient care). 

It sounds like you are a stellar applicant! There were several current students who I spoke to who had families kids and I hope you get a chance to talk to them when you’re there! Also one of the faculty is the head of MEAPA, so that’s great too!

Good Luck!! If you don't mind me asking when did your Caspa verified? I am a bit nervous!

Interviewed there on 9/13 and received an acceptance call a week later, on 9/20. They said that emails from admissions will be sent out tomorrow (Tuesday) with further details.

Pretty psyched, they look like they have an excellent program and seem to really like paramedics. Happy to answer any questions anyone has.

Good luck to everyone who has an upcoming interview!

Hi everyone! I received an interview today for Oct 18th. For those that interviewed, around what time was the interview done at? I am trying to figure out when would be a safe time to catch a flight out.

Best of luck everyone!!

They break you up in groups. Some people got done at like 1030. Some were done, like me at about 1 Pm. Safe to say if you get a flight out at about 3 pm, you should be all swell!

Hi everyone! A couple of us who have already confirmed our acceptance into the program for May 2020 (Class of 2022, woohoo!) would like to keep in touch prior to the start of the program. I submitted my deposit today! If you are attending the UNE program next year, feel free to get in touch: seporter@mmc.org. Thanks so much - I can't wait for our exciting new adventure!
