In hopeful anticipation for a few more interview invites this cycle, I have tried to make my own list of schools' interview formats, whether in-person or virtual, so I can best plan out travel time/costs/etc. I'm guessing this info could probably help a lot of us!
If you've received an interview invitation for a program, would you mind commenting with the program/school name and whether they are offering in-person, virtual, or a choice? Thanks all!
My name is Nicole Rodriguez and I am a recent graduate from Florida International University double major in Biology and Natural & Applied Sciences. I am currently working as a medical assistant working on my patient care hours and will be applying to PA schools the next cycle. I would like to have some guidance on my personal statement and would appreciate any advice! I may be reached out via email Nicole.firstname.lastname@example.org
I live in Carrollton but attend PA school in Nashville and am set to graduate in December. I had a rotation set up by my teacher that she had secured through a prior affiliation agreement. However, there was some miscommunication and it seems that my previous rotation site is no longer available. I was wondering if you are aware of any preceptorships from 09/13/21 to 10/15/21? Being that this is my elective, I feel that the terms are pretty broad so I have a lot of flexibility where I can work and no real preference. I know that an affiliation agreement is needed but my teacher informed me that generally she can get that done very quickly. Thank you for any information in advance.
I submitted my CASPA applications to 11 schools on May 28th. I just realized that I made a error in the calculation of my hours for my undergraduate research hours for my honor's thesis. The date listed on my experience are correct, 10/1/2018 to 5/08/2020. But I mixed up the total weeks and hours calculation. I wrote 77,010 hours. It should be 1,560 hours (104 weeks * 15 hours a week). I have no idea how I managed to get the high number, clearly a mistake in my calculations as shown by the time frame. I've already contacted CASPA about the issue. I am awaiting their reply. I am also going to email the 11 schools graduate admissions to notify them of the error and that I am working with CASPA. I know it can't be corrected since my application was already verified. But now that I have one interview invite, I was wondering if I should be doing anything additionally to rectify the situation? I'm really nervous schools will see this error as carelessness, and then question my capabilities as a student, and eventual practicing PA.
I'm really stressing out since realizing this error, any advice would be appreciated!
I am a member of AAPA and maybe I am unfamiliar with the website, but I want to make the most learning from the site and using it.
How do PA-S or PA-C use it? As a Pre-PA how can I use the site and its resources to help?
I appreciate it!
