I received an invitation to interview today. As an out of state applicant I'm very excited and grateful!

Does anyone know what to expect for the interview format for this program? Blind interview? Individual interview? Group interview? MMI?

Just looking for as much advice as I can get so that I can start properly preparing. Good luck to everyone!

Congratulations on the interview as well! I believe they will send us more information on the interview format once everyone has confirmed! If I hear anything though, I will let you know! 

I might check the older forums to see if there is any information there too! Good luck!

Congratulations to everyone that received interviews!  How exciting 🙂   I don't think I will receive a interview, since the stipulation of

" Labs must be completed in person" was JUST added to the website.   Obviously not all of us are traditional students that have that option, since living abroad in Korea and having a professional medical career did not allow me face to face setting.   Super excited for you guys!! 

Also as far as I am aware, the interviews are in a group setting 4-5 at a time.

Interviewing Friday 10/18! Also an out of state applicant. Does anybody want to meet up on 10/17 evening, maybe at Frontier or Brickyard Pizza near UNM? 

I live right there and I have never tried Brickyard Pizza. That being said, Frontier is pretty legit. Either way, I am down. My email is martinezjustin599@gmail.com. Feel free to reach out to me.

Those of you that were from out of state would you mind sharing your ethnicity?  I believe it may help those not getting interviews or acceptance understand a little more.  Because believe it or not, UNM is known to take those that are diverse over Caucasians, and I have been told that if you come from Gallup/or Native American you basically have an automatic in.

I am.  But there is only 17 in the cohort and doesn't seem there is a really good chance of anyone being selected from it.  My guess is that the waitlist consist of everyone that was interviewed.  I think it's kind of lame they don't give us more details about the waitlist.

      Hi, everyone!
      What are your thoughts on applying to programs with a ARC-PA probationary accreditation status (i.e., "Accreditation-Probation")?
      I'm a first-time applicant, and a couple schools that I have my eye on currently have probationary statuses (Johnson & Wales University; Monmouth University). I was wondering if it's worth applying to said schools, especially to ones that have had a probationary status for more than two years. 
      Although these schools are still considered accredited, is it safe to apply to & then attend these schools? Do these schools prepare students to become competent & trustworthy healthcare professionals? Are these schools worth the debt? My concern is enrolling in a school with probationary accreditation and graduating as a sub par PA-C, but those are just my uncertain sentiments at the moment. 
      Moreover, I've read that applying to these schools may be advantageous to some who aren't considered "strong applicants" (e.g., average grades/GRE). On the other hand, I've seen "strong applicants" display their admiration & loyalty to these schools here on PA Forum. I'm confused! Let's open up the discussion!

      I worked as a PRN rehab technician for about 3 months (roughly 20 hours a week) before I became Full-Time (40 hours a week).  How do I record this change in hours? Do I make two separate entries or average the hours per week?  My hours for PRN also varied each week, with weeks working up to 30 hours and sometimes only 15 hours. Do I need to record this somehow? I also do not understand how PA schools validate that the numbers of hours stated are honest. Is there some sort of validation document needed from each employer from past jobs.  Any advice is appreciated, thank you!

      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?

      I was checking my verified application & I have “Punjabi” listed under “native language”.  On CASPA my response to “first language” was “Punjabi”.   To clarify, I am fluent in English. (I’ve been speaking English since I was 5!! I answered to "first language" quite literally.) Will I run into any problem with PA programs? Would they assume otherwise?   --I was born in California and went to schools K-12 in Cali and then Uni of Cali, Santa Cruz for undergrad. Has anyone else experienced this?
      **The application is locked & I am unable to change it to English**

      Hi everyone.  Thought I'd start the discussion for the 2019-2020 application cycle.  Good luck!
