No but according to last years forum they sent out interview invites on August 28th for their September 29th interview date. Since this year the interview date is the 28th of September I anticipate hat we will hear roughly around the same time.

I was looking at that too! Okay that sounds good, feels like it can’t come soon enough!! But fingers crossed for the both of us! Good luck!

Got one as well! I’m from TX! Any hotel recommendations?

Yes! I also got an invite on Friday, I am local to Pittsburgh. It depends on your price point. The Ace Hotel in East Liberty is not too far from the East End campus, they have some modest rooms that are relatively affordable: https://www.acehotel.com/pittsburgh/. The Hotel Indigo in East Liberty is also close, not sure of the pricing: https://www.ihg.com/hotelindigo/hotels/us/en/pittsburgh/pithb/hoteldetail. There is also a Spring Hill Suites that is practically next door to the East End campus: https://www.marriott.com/hotels/hotel-photos/pitel-springhill-suites-pittsburgh-bakery-square/

Hey! No, I haven't heard of it until now honestly. It looks like an ethics/ people skills test? Might be helpful but I'm sure you'll be fine without it. They really want to see your personality in person at the interview I'm sure!

Yes- it is a situational judgement test. It consists of scenarios that involve behavioral or ethical conflicts, which you either watch or read, and then you have a short time frame to answer prompts about each scenario. It is very similar to things you’d find in a MMI style interview format or even situation based questions in traditional interviews. I took it because it was a requirement for a couple other schools where I applied.

      Hello, I recently made a post yesterday and got some great feedback. You can read more about my background and thoughts there. Feel free to give more insight. I am reading all comments and using it sort of as a guidance in making a serious life decision. You can check it here: 
      However for the professional PA's who are currently working, my main question for you today is:
       Are you satisfied as being a PA? What are some things that Physicians do that you can't in your specialties? Give me concrete examples!
      A lot of people say autonomy, wide scope of practice, vertical mobility, etc. But what exactly are those day-to-day job differences or limitations that you have noticed in your specialty as a PA? Or do you feel like you have full autonomy? 
      I am interested in either Internal Medicine (Hospitalist) or Emergency Medicine. But if it's pretty much 90% of the same job as Physicians, then I am not sure if 7 years of medical school is worth it for me. I know people usually recommend PA to MD mostly if you want to go into either surgery or a specialization of some sort.
      Can't wait to read your thoughts! Hopefully your comments and answers will give me and others in similar situations a strong resolution.

      Hi,
      So I've been doing a lot of research trying to see if it is feasible for me to be a physician's assistant. I am an ultrasound technician/ back office manager and have shadowed with many hours with other PA's, NP's and Dr.'s. I have clinical hours needed. I have a lot of humanities and general courses needed as the pre-requisites. I am currently enrolled at a community college to get some of the science pre-requisites needed. I have been contacting admissions at different schools to make sure my classes completed would be sufficient. I also have my bachelor's degree in healthcare management through Platt College. Admissions at Marshall B. Ketchum verified my transcripts and told me that unfortunately my bachelor's degree is Nationally-accredited and NOT regionally-accredited. It seems like most PA programs are the same. Now I'm not sure if this is something I can do while working full-time and having a 2 year old. I'm stuck with trying to see if anyone has had something similar happen to them or any advice. I don't think it would make sense financially to get a whole other bachelor's degree from a four year university. Also I would need night and weekend classes and that seems impossible with regular UC's. The only other option I could think of is taking my science pre-requisites at community college still and then getting a bachelor's degree online. However, I'm not sure which online schools would be sufficient for the regional-accreditation and also be a reasonable price. I'm thinking of another healthcare management degree or something related since it technically doesn't need to be science based. Just a bachelor's degree with the right accreditation. Any advice for my situation?
