I am a second semester PA student who was accepted with a low GPA directly out of undergrad. I am holding Zoom Advising sessions where I can help you figure out how you can improve your application and answer any questions you may have about the application process including personal statement review. The cost of each session is $10. Please send me a PM if you are interested! Thank you, and Good luck!
My name is Kim and I am a demonstrated pre-PA coach and a current PA-S with a high success rate of client admission. I am currently available to take on new clients. I offer services including the following: personal statement editing/feedback, supplemental essay editing/feedback, interviewing prep/coaching, mock interviews, general pre-PA application advising sessions and pre-PA planning for the future. During the 2019-2020 cycle, I was invited to 7 interviews but only chose to attend 4 as I was accepted to my top choice by the 4th interview. I was accepted to ALL programs that I decided to interview with. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in learning more about my services. I also offer these services to other pre-health students as well.
Greetings future PAs,
My name is Elizabeth and this is my second year applying to MEDEX with my first interview. I am very excited and nervous at the same time. I'm unsure on how the Zoom interview will go and I want to reach out to anyone else that feels the same way. Id love to get to know a few of you prior to the Zoom interview to feel a bit more comfortable. I look forward to meeting you all on 11/14, and hopefully one day in the classroom.
Who would be interested in practicing interviewing? After interviewing at my top-choice program this cycle and failing to get accepted or even on the waitlist, I know I need a lot more practice interviewing.
Let's help each other. Let's do 15- to 45-minute virtual interviews. The more we can do, the better.
I spoke with several PAs, did a practice interview through my university's career center, and paid $$$ for professional PA interview help. The practicing PAs knew me and were a relaxed about the process. They told me I had good responses. I think that the interview through my university's career center was the best/most realistic. It was a 30-minute, rapid-fire interview. The person was vaguely familiar with my app/personal statement/resume. The professional help was expensive, we stopped after each question, and I didn't get a sense of where I might stand amongst other applicants.
Practicing with each other has many benefits.
Other applicants are familiar with what programs are looking for (as opposed to your university's career center, where people won't be too familiar with the competitiveness of PA school entrance.)
we can get ideas from each other (When I was teaching, I learned a lot from watching other teachers. I'd observe and think, 'I want to incorporate my own version of that', or 'I do that, too, but shouldn't.' Sure, there's a risk of someone copying you, but that person will probably just come off as inauthentic. Plus, you can compare your answers to others' and see where you need to step up your game.)
