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

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!

I emailed Chatham's admissions and they said they are sending out interviews for the September date tomorrow, the 30th!

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/

Hi everyone!  For those who were offered an interview, did you take the CASPER exam/test? 

Yes, I took the CASPer in June

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.

      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**
