5 LOR:
1) PA from the OBGYN practice I am in a medical assistant at
2) Research advisor
3) Bio professor
4) Women and Gender studies professor

GRE: 316 total and 5.0 on writing
I am also certified as an EMT-B, even though I have not worked in the field because I took a job as a medical assistant instead

OMG my stats are SO similar! I still haven't submitted my supplemental because I got an interview at George Washington, and I'm trying to save the $100 if I get in there... I might go ahead and submit depending on how my interview goes this weekend. Congrats to everyone with interviews!

Confirmation of CASPA received + supplemental info: 5/29

Supplemental submitted: 6/1 (and notified that supplemental was received on 6/2)

Interview invite: 9/5 for the 9/15 interview slot

Just curious, what are y’all’s thoughts on IBL?

Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I really like IBL format. My major in undergrad had a similar method of teaching and I found it to be really helpful in the long run. It's exciting to research your way to seeing the full picture of whatever it is your learning about. However, I do really enjoy solving problems and thinking my way through situations so that helps when it comes to this method of learning.

Does anyone know if the technology check the night before the interview is with faculty / other students or is it just on your own? I will be out of town the night before and was just wondering if I need to bring some business casual clothes on my trip! Thanks in advance! 

If anyone interviewing on 10/6 wants to connect, message me! I'd love to meet other interviewees 🙂

I believe it's with faculty! But definitely do not need to wear business clothes or anything. It's more just a brief check to make sure your video and camera work before the interview. Not everyone who was in my interview group was able to attend the technology check, so I'm not even sure if it's 100% mandatory or not!
