Hello everyone!

 

I just received an invitation to interview at SRU via Zoom on June 17th, so I figured I would get a thread started.

If anyone has had experience interviewing or being accepted by SRU, I'm sure everyone would love to hear about it. I know I would.

I know it really should be ! Do you know what we should except? 

It's hard to say. 

Another school I'm interviewing for in July via Zoom said to expect a virtual tour, Q&A, and finally interviews. My guess is it'll be something similar to that structure, but this is a unique situation, so who knows?

What is the other school you have heard back from if you don't mind me asking ?

I don't mind at all! The University of Pittsburgh invited me to interview in July. I got the invite around the same time as SRU's.

Congrats! Can I ask when your application was verified? Also, did you get an email confirming they got your application?

Congrats! Did you have to fill out any additional applications on their website? My application was verified May 27th and I haven't heard anything. Getting anxious!

Does SRU send an e-mail when they receive your app?

No I did not get an email when they had received they had just emailed me for the invitation for the interview.

Did everyone receive the e-mail on probationary status? Curious how this affects your opinion on the school?

@GatorPA21

 

I did get that email. I'm not exactly happy about it, but my feelings on the situation are going to depend on why they've been placed on probation. 

 

Also, congrats! What date are you interviewing?

Okay, so I interviewed today and I just wanted to pass on some basic info about it's structure and what I learned.

The interview consisted of:

- A Q&A session

- A virtual tour of the university

- A 20 minute group interview in groups of 5

- A 10 minute individual interview

- A brief wrap up where any outstanding requirements are addressed in private

As for the school's probation status, the way they characterized it is that it is an administrative issue that has nothing to do with the quality of instruction. It was only touched on briefly, so I'm afraid I don't have specifics. However, there was a lot of talk about new equipment and the future of the program, so they sound confident that the issue has been addressed.

Overall, I would say I was Impressed with the staff and the interview process. I wish the best of luck to those waiting to interview and those waiting to receive an invite to interview!

For people who were offered the interview, did you fill out multiple verification forms for your community service, shadowing, and patient care hours or just one of each form with your experience that had the greatest number of hours?

For the descriptions that we have to submit pre-interview is it okay to copy and paste my descriptions from caspa? I don't want to seem lazy/plagarize but it seems unnecessary to completely re-write them.

Hey there! Thank you so much for the helpful info! Since the one-on-one interview is only 10 minutes, did the interviewer(s) ask the common traditional questions? My mock interview was much longer, so i'm curious as to how structured a 10 minute interview could be. I'd appreciate any feedback you can provide, thanks!
