Hey! For the supplemental application, what exactly do they want us to put in for the Activities section? 

Is this just asking what we do when classes are not in session or after we graduated from college?

It says this: List how you have spent or plan to spend your time before entering UF (employment, travel, military, etc) while not enrolled in college.

Have you taken time off since graduating college?

Anyone start the supplemental application? Not sure if I should list the community college that I took a transient class in for 1 summer.

You should list classes from any school you attended

After creeping on this thread for the past few days, I decided to finally make a profile and contribute to discussion. Just completed the CASPer exam today (...whew) and completed the supplemental application. Now only waiting to take the GRE exam in a few weeks and get my transcript/degree from my undergrad institution sent to CASPA. Super excited! 
 

Good luck to everyone!

That’s awesome! I just took my CASPer too and submitted my supplemental app! I’ll be taking the GRE soon! Sounds like you’re doing great! Keep up the good work! And good luck!! I’m beyond thrilled to finally be applying this cycle!

Absolutely! All the same to you! The nerves are already starting to get to me a bit (this is my first cycle as well), but I know it’s just an inevitable part of the process. Thanks for making this thread! 😁

For me it’s a great test to take! There’s 12 sections, 8 video based and 4 texted based scenarios. Just be genuine when you answer and be you! Highly recommend taking a practice test and practice typing speed. For you have 5 mins to answer 3 questions

For me it was a bit challenging with the time constraints and just thinking really quick on your feet. 5 minutes goes by super fast! I don’t think I did terrible but I’ll be honest, maybe I brushed it off a little more than I should have. Maybe I’m overthinking it, though.  I took like, half of a practice test to kind of get the feel of everything and skimmed over some example questions. There’s not a ton else you can do to study for it, as it’s just asking you what you would do in ethical/situational based scenarios, but the time limit is what got me the most. I’d agree w/ Johnny and say take a practice test (Full length), answer everything logically, ethically and honestly and you’ll be fine!

Hello! Was just reading through this and wanted to pitch in. It wasn't challenging as in testing your knowledge, the hardest part was answering the three written responses in five minutes! There was one section that I didn't make it to the third question but the others were fine. I googled CASPer tips and I think that helped me a lot. I did a lot of practice questions and definitely did the sample test on their website before completing it and I think that helped as well! Good luck!

Yup great advice! I remember when I was in section 10 my fingers were starting to hurt from typing lol. Just remember to focus and you will do well on this CASPer test!

CASPA verified May 11th, submitted my CASPA app to UF on the same day. My GRE scores, supplemental app, and CASPer are all completed and on their way to UF. Here we go!

I have another question if anybody can help. I am doing the supplemental application and it says that transcripts need to be sent directly to UF admissions. Does this mean that they want new ones plus the ones from CASPA ?. So double transcripts ?

      Hi guys, 
      I didn't see a new thread. Hope this helps you guys. Just like in previous years they are moving forward, but it may look a bit different because COVID seems to be slowing down. Here's the email I received on 5/11/2021. I submitted my application on 5/3/2021 and verified on 5/11/2021. 
       
      Thank you for applying to the Radford University Carilion PA program. This email is to let you know that your application is complete, has been marked as "Verified", and we have received your RU supplemental application. Your application will be put in a queue to be reviewed. You may still provide updates to your application through the CASPA website.
      Once applications are reviewed, we will make decisions on whom to interview. Our earliest interview dates will be in September. As we don't yet have exact dates selected for interviews, we will likely make offers for interviews in early July at the soonest.
      We will send out periodic updates to keep you apprised of your status. However, with the necessary changes in how we accomplish our tasks, those updates may not be as frequent as we would like them to be. We are happy to answer any questions that come up, and you are welcome to email me at rhadley1@radford.edu.
      Thank you,
      Bob Hadley

      Hey everyone, there are still tickets available for those who are interested in the Loma Linda PA program. We have changed our event from zoom to being ON CAMPUS. There will be prizes raffled off. Due to some restrictions still being in place, the tickets that are being sold will only allow one person per ticket. More info on the flyer and event bright website. Thank you so much! Hope to see you there. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/llus-3rd-annual-pre-pa-conference-tickets-145958073527

      Hey y'all so I am a sophomore in undergrad and in the process of just starting to get PCE, shadow, and volunteer hours and etc, but I am super stressed out because I am itching to start getting PCE hours except its so difficult while in school. I was thinking about becoming an EMT and working for 2 years after I graduate but I wasn't sure if being an EMT is considered PCE among most colleges, does anyone know? (I also tried to work as a caregiver over summer and that job isn't for me) 
       
      Also, I'm trying to compile a list of PA schools to apply to, so if anyone has any recommendations for schools on the east coast please let me know! 🙂

      Hi everyone!
      I am currently in my third semester of didactic year and will be starting clinical rotations in the fall. My family is moving to Tampa and I was hoping to get a rotation set up in the area. I am looking for a preceptor in family or internal medicine, pediatrics, behavioral, women's health, or emergency medicine.
      If you know any contacts or other forums I could reach out to please let me know, thank you!
