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.
