    I think if you retook the GRE to get your verbal to 150 you would be a much stronger applicant.

    Isn't too late to do that?
    Many schools will not accept a GRE score past the deadline and many of them won't accept any GRE score taken after November 1st.

    I would just go into it trying to be as relaxed as possible. They have a whole list of situational questions that are hard to prepare for, so my advice is just to think about your experiences and what you learned from them, think of different patients you met while observing, etc. everyone is super nice and it's very low stress so just relax and be yourself! I know that's not very specific but the questions were really all over the place (but not hard). Good luck!! :)

    Awesome thanks! I heard the questions are "all over the place" from students that applied last year too. One student said she was given a group exercise to do with 2 other students to possibly observe leadership or cooperation skills.

    I'd say be yourself during the interview process. The faculty and students are very welcoming. The interviews are group interviews, it was two interviewees, two faculty and a current pt student. The interview questions were pretty standard and was somewhat catered to your supplemental form. They chose me and another candidate with similar backgrounds and there were roughly 5 questions. One question you and the other candidate had scenarios where you had to demonstrate problem solving skills. The interviewers want to see whether you're a good fit for the school or not, so just be yourself and see if you want to attend Stony Brook. I'd say take a deep breath and try to relax, it was smooth sailing.
