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.

      As someone who has a noncompetitive GPA, I am considering pursuing a Master's in Biomedical Sciences to show programs that my study habits and academic performance has most certainly improved. 
      -Does anyone know if grades received in a master's program help boost the overall GPA?
      - Would the science courses taken at a grad level count for PA school pre-reqs?
      -Any tips/advice from those that have taken this route?
       
      I appreciate you taking the time to help 🙂

      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'm considering becoming a PA and have always been interested in aesthetic dermatology. I was wondering how content PA's are with specializing in aesthetic dermatology and what kind of work hours there are. Another thing, are the work hours flexible? I'd love to start a family but not sure how much it will affect that. Thank you!
