Congrats that’s awesome! Is your interview at CC or East falls?  

It's at Center City.  It says to arrive at 9 and plan to be there the whole day.  I'm wondering what the itinerary is going to be.

My interview's at Center City.  Has anyone heard what the interview process is like there in past years?

Good Luck everyone!  I have been through this process before... I am happy to answer any questions in DMs as I can get to them.  Don't know how much specifics I can get into but I hope I can be helpful.

I sent an email today declining my interview invite for Sept 17th as I have gained acceptance at the TJU New Jersey campus! Hopefully this will give someone else an opportunity. Best of luck everyone!

@ChristineAndersonPrePA Hi! Thank you! I submitted May 17th and was verified May 20th.

Stats at time of submission:

cGPA 3.48

sGPA 3.41

volunteer hours: 148 (Worked with under-served families, tutored children in variety of school subjects. I also went on a medical mission trip to Peru where I worked with under-served families)

PA shadowing hours: 21 (PA in an orthopedics department)

PCE Hours: ~6,500 ( I worked as an EMT-B for about two years and then transitioned to an urgent care setting where I have been working as an urgent care tech for the last 2 1/2 years)

The interview was very laid back and included the formal interview, campus tour, program presentation, Q&A session with current students, and a writing sample.

Yes, just to echo PAtobe- curious about how the day is run! The invitation email didn't have much info. Is it just one interview? How long are they? Are they one-on-one? Thank you!

My bad! There’s no external secondary apart from the one on CASPA. So I submitted 9/9 and got invited for the interview 9/16.
