So, this year I helped out at the 11/7 interviews.  I don't believe I interviewed any of you who posted here, but I did for six folks.  Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 and security and whatnot, this is

Hi everyone! I am a current student at Pacific's PA school! I just wanted to reach out to those of you interested in our program to see if I can answer any questions about what it is like here at

I've never been so anxious in my life. I just want a rejection already (if thats the case) . I wonder if all the things happening in Portland is somehow affecting the timing. Thank you for your reply 

Latest you could hear back is early December

That’s so exciting congratulations!!! Without giving away too much detail are you able to share the format of the interview (group, one-on-one, multiple mini etc.?) 

It was two interviewers per applicant, no group or MMI. All of the questions were pretty straightforward and get-to-know-you questions, both in the sense of personality and who you are as an applicant.

Was your interview "blind", had the interviewers been over your application, or did you not know if they had seen your info? Just trying to be prepared 🙂 

And congratulations on your acceptance, I know you must be so excited!

Hi All,

I just gave up my interview spot on November 7. I was lucky enough to get accepted to a couple of programs last week. I love this program, but I think I should give someone else a chance to interview and get accepted at a program they love. 
 

Good luck to all of you!

Hi everybody,

I also gave up my interview slot for Nov. 7th due to acceptances elsewhere---I wish everyone all the best, and hope that my slot can go to one of you all! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed! 🙂

Also I saw someone asked about out-of-state applicants, I applied with NC residency although I have 'Oregon heritage' (in that I graduated from college in Portland). Hope this helps!

I haven't heard anything. I'm repeating this class because it was longer than 2 years old for this scholarship. I would be so upset if I dont get an interview. But congratulations to those who got interviews. So many out of state. Thats awesome. Wish us luck guys! Still hoping for good news from ANYWHERE! 😕

Good luck!!

Does anyone know what the interview dates are for this year? I looked at last year’s thread and it looked like they had 3 dates, one in early October and then two in November. I’m just curious if anyone knows if that’s still the case? 

They told me that they have 4 interview days this cycle: 10/10, 10/24, 11/7, and 11/21. Hope this help and keep your fingers crossed!

Has anyone else not heard from Pacific yet? The initial email said people can hear back Sep-Dec, but the last interview date is 11/21. I haven't heard back from Pacific yet, if I got an interview invite or not. If 11/21 comes and goes, I will know  😞

Hey, im haven't heard anything either. I took a class this semester just for this program because they told me I had to repeat it cuz it was longer than 7 years old. I have a feeling that ill get a rejection email

I also haven’t heard anything back from them, though I guess no news is still good news? It’s interesting to me that they’ve already completed half of their interviews and have accepted some students while others are still waiting. This is my first cycle applying and none of the other programs have done that but who knows maybe it’s more common than I think. 
 

Best of luck to everyone still waiting or with upcoming interviews!

I haven’t heard anything either. It’s pretty disheartening 😞

I retook an anatomy class just for OHSU because it was considered expired for them and did not get an interview there. It is kind of sucky to re-take classes :(. Good luck!
