Don't remember it off hand. I just googled the number in Bayshore and spoke to someone there. Started with a 631 or something.

I interviewed on the tenth and was accepted today. The interview is 6 eight minute interviews with different faculty. It's very situational and make sure you know what a PA is/does!

Expect a mess of an interview. They switched to the MMI model as spoken about above which to me defeats the purpose of an interview as you really don't get to know someone in 5 minutes. I had the same question asked of me by three separate interviewers! I would also expect a random writing sample question.

I hate the MMI model!!! I don't understand why everyones going that way... I feel like I never do well bc it's hard to have a good interview in such a short time! I like to build some side rapport during an interview and make a connection with the staff.. it's an interview for me just as it is for them.  In my prior MMI experience, I walked away feeling I didn't do well and additionally, didn't take away much from the program.  Not at allll my favorite interview format.

As far as having to meet with more than one group during the interview, here is a positive side to it. As we were told right before we went into our respective interviewers, sometimes you just don't click with a specific interviewer and the entire experience can go downhill from there. Especially considering the fact that almost all admissions have multiple staff interviewing prospective students. It's almost luck of the draw that any one interviewee will get the "good" interviewer. In Touro's scenario the playing field is leveled as everyone is interviewed by the entire staff. It worked for me :-)

Yeah, I hear you.. I just feel like it's sometimes hard to click with someone in that setting (stressful and where the interviewee is solely answering questions/little to no back and forth conversation.. predominantly one-sided) in 5 minutes.

Does anyone know if there is a short answer or essay in the interview?
