Yea I’d definitely ask! They seemed very lenient with things. Most programs that do take AP credits have a certain score that they will accept (a 4 or 5 for example) and then you’re all good

Do you mind sharing the email address you sent your questions to? I am so sorry, I don't want to just email a random faculty member who may not be involved in admissions or the general gradadmissions@desales.edu one. Thanks so much

Hey y'all! I will be starting at DeSales in August of this year. I remember how I felt this time last year, and would love to be of any assistance possible. I certainly am not an expert by any me

Congrats!! Would you mind sharing your stats??

Yes I am very curious what your stats are, also are you a first time applicant or reapplicant? I submitted 5/13 and confirmed my application is complete and verified but have yet to hear anything else.

Here’s what I used: mspas@desales.edu
Got a response within a day, good luck!! They would probably want you to include some course descriptions or even links to the courses on a school website if you can find them. That will help them figure out if it’ll count for their requirements.

Hi! Yes I am a first time applicant, super nervous but very excited! 🙂 I posted my stats a couple posts back so hopefully it shows up there. Did you get an email from them stating that they received your application? I wouldn’t worry because it seems like things are going incredibly slow because of all the delays!

Yes, it was through zoom! It was from 8am-1:30pm! Thankfully my internet didn’t cut out! I was super worried about technical difficulties occurring! 

Would you mind telling us a little about the interview format? Did you learn anything interesting about the program?

Yeah no problem! 
8:00-9:00 is the program overview. You hear from the director about the program curriculum and he goes over some paperwork. 
9:00-11:00 is a rotation of 30 minute segments. 
For me it went like this - 

9:00-9:30 was a writing sample. (Don’t freak out it’s nothing crazy)
9:30-10:00 was a group activity where you had to demonstrate teamwork! Make sure you speak up in this one and demonstrate leadership skills too! 
10:00-10:30 was an interview with a didactic professor

10:30-11:00 was an interview with a clinical coordinator 

11:00-12:00 was listening to a class over zoom 

12:00-1:00 was the virtual lunch with current PA students 

1:00-1:30 was a virtual tour from the director and a final Q/A! 

Overall it was SUPER organized and went very smoothly!! The interview portion was pretty laid back and my interviewers seemed like they really just wanted to get to know me! There was no quizzing on anatomy or the history of PAs like someone said above ^ - However, I can’t speak for every interviewer! 
 

This was a great experience, but one thing I would recommend is that you sit in a comfortable chair. It’s a long time to sit and stare at your computer!! 
 

Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions! :))
