I had mine on 7/31 and haven't heard back either so I’m losing hope since people have been accepted. I was interviewed by 2 faculty members (program director and PA professor). They gave me different scenarios and asked me what would I do in those situations. I feel like I didnt do that well because I wasnt expecting questions about patients or so ever. They asked me what patient I remember the most and how it influence my life. Be prepared for those types of questions. Best of luck on the interview!!!

Hi,
So I just received an interview invite via email but it seems a little odd.. did anyone else receive one from Gertrude? She states that I have to call to schedule an interview and they are only 30 minutes in length. Can someone confirm if this is true or not? Thank you! 

Hi! 

I received the same email from Gertrude and I’ve been trying to call all day to schedule but no one picks up. 

I’m extremely nervous for this interview! Does anyone know if we have to do any type of essay when we are there or is it just the interview. Any advice will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

That is the correct email for the interview! The interview is super chill and laid back, its just a 30 minute traditional interview with 2 interviewers. They had 2 interviews going on at once, one batch was interviewed by 2 PAs. I was interviewed by the director of the program and another member of the faculty

Good luck!! I'm sure you'll be fine, it was my first interview but super chill. It's only 30 minutes and they have two sets of interviews going on at the same time. I was interviewed by the director of the program + a professor, I believe the other group was interviewed by 2 professors. Its basically a 1 (you) vs. 2 (faculty) interview and very traditional. They started off by asking "why PA" and every other question was very standard such as strength/weakness, my experiences, how I decide PA over MD/NP, etc. I get pretty nervous during interviews but it was really pleasant and laid-back. They also have your file with them during the time of the interview and started off my telling me I was a strong candidate which really helped calm my nerves. Long story short, no surprises and super chill. I'm sure you'll do great 🙂 

If it's helpful at all my stats at the time were cGPA 3.8/ sGPA 3.79, 1000 PCE hours, ~700 HCE, and ~200 volunteer hours

Best of luck!! Feel free to message me for whatever. You'll do great 🙂

      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?
