Hello everybody!! I had my interview on 10/7 and accepted an offer today on 10/14. They called me around noon and followed up shortly after with an email. I wish you all the best of luck, and hope I get the chance to meet some, if not all, of you soon! 😇

Hey! What was your interview like? Congrats!

Does anybody know if Mount accepts shadowing hours of a MD/DO? On their website they only mention PA shadowing, but I feel like a lot of schools will accept either. I'm kind of in a crunch to get shadowing hours and there is a lot of virtual physician shadowing I can find, but struggling to find PA shadowing during these times. So if anyone knows about this and could let me know, that would help a lot. Thanks!
