    I was wondering if anyone could provide me with more input about their interview process. I received a last minute invite for 11/20. I couldn't find a lot of information on here from previous applicants and current students. From my understanding, it's a group interview with different groups of 5 students throughout the day. Also, in my email confirmation, admissions indicated that the visit will only require two hours; one hour to interview and one hour to tour. No student/professor panel or financial aid discussions? I thought it was a strange/short process and would like some more feedback.

    Thanks in advance!

    I received an email for December 11th interview. Could you please give me some feedback on their interview process? I am kind of nervous too.

    by the way, your interview was 11/20? That is weird because they told me the first interview will be on Dec11th.

    Interviews start a month earlier this year, in November. This is their first year on PTCAS so they're expecting a larger pool of applicants. Did they indicate your interview time? 1PM is the first group and 2PM is the second group.

    Overall, it was a great experience. There will be 5 other applicants that interview with you for that hour but it goes by really quick. Its pretty laid back but come prepared and ready to think on your feet. Most of the questions asked could be found on here if you search "DPT interview questions". Also, look into their curriculum and interprofessional program (IPEX) -great questions to ask- I was impressed with the campus during the tour. It had a mix of new and old buildings in a small campus to easily get around.

    Relax, be yourself, and check out Patts or grittys afterwards to reward yourself! :) Congrats & good luck!

    Aimee called me yesterday from the DEC11th interview. The campus will be closed for the holiday so I think if you don't hear from her by this week, I think is either wait listed or denied letter.

    She said most of the people that I interview with got in.

    Best of luck for ya.
