Hi all, I have an interview with USA next Friday and I understand that some are also having the interview with me and in CA. I have look through so many thread to see if there is anything on interview question and essay for USA but did not find any. I want to start this and was wondering if USA student who have been interview by USA could give us some insight on what kind of question they ask for the essay and what kind of question they ask during the interview. This is very important to me..The only school I apply to is USA and hopeing to get accepted on my first attempt....please help us out. Thank you.

hey hope17. i'm applying for USA in san diego also. My interview is on Monday. Like you, I'm only applying to USA. I can tell you that I'm preparing by going over my personal statement. Did you go to any of the open houses in san marcos? I got to speak with some current students and they gave me lots of helpful information. They told me they got the usual interview questions (why pt, and why USA, etc.) The student I spoke with told me her essay question was about three characteristics she possessed that are ideal in a PT.
I've also browsed around these forums and found helpful info from last years class. I hope this helps you out.

There is a ton of info on this forum for USA's interview process. My suggestion is to refine your search once more.

They told us that they would be giving us a call within 2 weeks if we are in. They will email us if we are on the alternate list and snail mail if its a rejection.

Unlike all, is it true you get automatic acceptance (for the next semester) if youre on the alternate list?

I didn't apply to USA or anything, just curious.

OH boy this is tough! I too attended interview Nov 19 in Florida. So I have not heard at anything yet. CONGRATS to the Cali folks getting their calls last week! Wonderful news, I am MOT applicant, but was looking here in hopes to get an idea if anybody from the 19th has heard any news yet. Keeping my fingers crossed we all get in ;) I absolutely loved the campus and everything about the program!

crippeng2- yes I felt better looking on here and seeing that nobody yet is reporting a call back yet from Florida campus! I felt great about my interview and the whole day. You never know. They only accept 15 in OT so when I found that out it made me a little nervous, but I am hopeful I can be one of those 15! :xf: I am hoping you got in too, the waiting is tough! So far Ihave searched the boards and nobody is reporting and word back yet from Nov 19 Florida interview. So hopefully by the end of this week!:D

I did get a call from the earlier today around 1 pm. However, Dian did tell me that they had just made the admissions decisions Friday. So I am assuming that they just started contacting people today. That is a lot of people to call so I wouldn't be surprised if they still have students to call until later this week. Try not to stress out and worry, if it is meant to be, it will be! Good luck to all
