How many programs did you apply to? 1

How many programs did you interview with? 1

Anything you found surprising about interviews? I was surprised about how informative and encouraging they were, they gave me a lot of confidence

Were there any helpful resources (books, websites, apps) you used to get through the application and interview process? I was very nervous, but I decided to make a zoom appointment with someone from admissions to put a face to my application. I really believe this helped me because I showed them that I was determined. 

Any other advice for other pre-PA students? Have confidence and apply to programs you may feel are challenging to get into.
