Hi everyone!  Hope you are well.  I wanted to share the news of this special recognition awarded Penn State Health.  WE ARE!! https://pennstatehealthnews.org/2020/08/penn-state-health-honored-for

Hello all, Again, thank you for your interest in Penn State!  I know this is a nerve-racking time for anyone applying to PA school (it was for me!) and I am sure the uncertainties of COVID are ad

Did anyone else just get that email about SparkHire being used for interviews?

I'm wondering how many Spark Hire interview invites are being sent out? Is this being treated as another secondary where a large number of applicants are receiving them, or is it being treated as an interview? In other words, how likely is someone who receives a spark hire invite to receive an interview with faculty? 

 

Thanks!

Hi! Congratulations to everyone that got in! 😄 I still haven't heard from the program. Did any of you that got in or had an interview update the school? I have done much more since August but don't know how to communicate with the school since I don't receive email replies. Also if anyone knows when they're interviewing till, that'd be good to know!

What form did you get in the email? I never received any email like that from them, but when I was searching, I did find 

Want to update Penn State?
If you have an update to submit regarding newly completed coursework or newly accrued hours, email the program directly at psupaprogram@pennstatehealth.psu.edu. Inquiries regarding your admissions status are unable to be returned. 
 Again, we assure all completed applicants (as described above) that you will receive a notification at the appropriate time.

Updates on Caspa do not get resubmitted to schools! You should personally fill out the form they send out in the emails to update and hours!! Good luck!

How long did it take for y'all to finish the spark hire interview? about an hour? I want to set aside the right amount of time. Also is it true you can watch your answers and reanswer if you dont like the recording you made the first try for each question? And you can take breaks?

When they sent me an email stating that my application was received, the bottom portion of the email stated that I should send in any updates to my application and when I replied asking how I would submit that information, the director of admissions sent me a pdf to fill out and send back via email! 🙂

to those of you who completed the interview process- how long after your faculty interview were you notified of a decision? my interview was just about 2 weeks ago and the anxiety is killing me...i think it went really well, but it's hard not to psych myself out and (over)analyze everything i said!

I interviewed in the same cycle and I still have not heard back yet! I know the email initially said before 3-4 weeks so I’m hoping we hear back soon! It’s psyching me out too. I was considering sending an email just to confirm when we should know.
