The PA Life Mock Interview Service - Testimonials, Reviews, and Success Stories
Thank you so so so much! I interviewed 9/12 at Trine University, and I walked in with so much more confidence thanks to you. After my mock interview with you, I reevaluated my answers, and I improved/changed them as needed. I had better answers and confidence. Thanks to our thorough mock interview, I received my acceptance call today! My dad attended Trine University, and he graduated in ’89 with a BSME. Trine is located in Fort Wayne as well. My family loves the city and loves Trine. Thank you again so, so, so much. I have the ability to stay with my family, my boyfriend, and, most importantly, my cats.
I am writing this email to show my gratitude for your interview expertise. I am ecstatic to announce that I am officially accepted to Stony Brook University PA Program. Thank you so much for all that you do. The mock interview was certainly helpful. You were wonderful. Stay amazing!
The mock interview was very helpful. I was thrown off with the unexpected questions, as I had thought I had prepared somewhat for the MMI portions. The feedback I received was very helpful and provided insight I would not have realized on my own or with peers. I received encouragement, which I did not expect, and the feedback made me realize I need to have more confidence in myself. Even afterward, the email replies are professional and helpful. Thank you very much!
Sarah was wonderful! The mock interview really helped to calm my nerves before any of my interviews, and Sarah really helped me figure out how to get across what I wanted to say! She gave me excellent feedback on my answers and I would recommend this service to anyone applying to PA school.
I 10000% recommend Sarah and The PA Life mock interview service! I did two mock interviews because it was that good and made me feel prepared. Before my mock interview I was rejected from one school I interviewed with. But after interviewing with Sarah from The PA Life, I was admitted after my second interview! I have a few more interviews lined up and I know that I’ll be able to apply the skills and tips I learned from these mock interviews when the time comes. I felt incredibly supported throughout the entire process and I could tell that they really want your dreams to come true!
I have received three interview offers and was nervous about being prepared for them. Talking through questions with Sarah and practicing my answers was so beneficial! It will absolutely help me relax on my interview days and know that I am prepared. I really was happy with The PA Life Mock Interview Service and would recommend it to anyone.
Deanna was wonderful, the mock interview was immensely helpful in giving me great practice and finding points of improvement, and overall making me feel confident and ready going into my interviews. She gave me great feeding back and I learned so much.
I had been through 3 interviews prior to your mock interview service. I really wanted to know what I was doing wrong/what I could do better since I was either denied or waitlisted previous to the mock interview. After a great hour with Sarah, I was able to learn so many great tips and figured out what I needed to rework. My interview skills vastly improved and I was soon accepted into multiple highly ranked PA programs. I know it was because of this I was able to stand out that much more! So grateful I was able to have this opportunity.
I signed up for a mock interview with Sarah Schultz and that helped me gain experience for the actual interview day. I was accepted to the UToledo PA program, and I am excited to start in fall 2022! Thanks for the additional articles on your site that gave me advice on finance, study advice and mental health.
I used the personal statement editing service with Deanna Matzen (April/May 2021) and the mock interview service with Mary Jones (June 2021). Both were exceptional to work with and helped me to achieve my goal. I applied to three schools and received interview invites from all three (I’m a first-time applicant). I was waitlisted at one in June and later accepted in November, received early acceptance to my top choice in November (UTSW), and I chose to decline my third interview scheduled in December. Thank you for your services!
Sarah is A-W-E-S-O-M-E! I did 2 mock interviews with two different online pre-PA resources, and this experience was much more helpful, in my opinion. She gave extremely helpful feedback that came in so useful on interview day. I was accepted at my top choice thanks to her mock interview service. I would recommend her to all future PAs!
I had a mock interview with Sarah earlier this week – my true interview was the morning, and I really can’t give Sarah enough praise. She was extremely helpful and made the mock interview very personalized to my specific background. She didn’t feed me “good answers,” she instead gave me great insight into my own ideas and ways I could touch on them more effectively. I went into this morning feeling more confident than I would have without her help. I’m so thankful I did this!
I’m glad to tell you that I have been offered admission into the Physician Assistant program at Texas Tech. Thank you for all your time and precious advice.
My interviewer Deanna was terrific! She provided precious insights and tangible strategies I could start using immediately in my interview with her. I’m feeling more confident about my upcoming interview, and I definitely recommend this service.
I was accepted into PA last cycle and am currently in my second semester! I am a part of the inaugural class at Keck Graduate Institute. Your services really helped me during the application process. I enjoyed working with Sarah on my personal statement. She helped me view my experiences from a different perspective, making my personal statement more unique and stand out amongst other applicants. The mock interview was also very helpful and prepared me for my one and only interview. I was given great pointers and feedback on how to refine my answers. Thank you again for your services!
Hi, I am beyond words to express how I feel, I got accepted, contingent on background check which I think is a formality. I want to say boldly that I am going to be a PA, thanks to you. You will be always blessed for the wonderful service you provide. You were very kind and worked beyond what I thought could be offered. Thanks again!
I’m not sure if you remember me but I did a couple of mock interviews with you back in September/October. Recall I was extremely nervous in my first interview and ended up scheduling another mock interview with you again. I just wanted to let you know that I was accepted to 2 out of 3 schools and waitlisted at the other. I even had an interviewer at one of my MMI stations tell me that I answered the question/scenario perfectly! I really believe I would not have had these results had I not done the mock interviews with you. I will be attending my top-choice school this summer and am extremely excited. Thank you for all your help and for being so encouraging during the mock interviews. I hope you are doing well.
I just wanted to give you an update on my application status. I was accepted to Columbia University for this upcoming May 2020. I wanted to say thank you so very much for helping me during my mock interview. It truly helped me beyond what I can describe. Thanks for all that you do to help so many individuals achieve their goals!
I had my interview on Wednesday. It was nerve-wracking, but I answered their questions at least and did not get too emotional ?. You helped me so much through this whole process. Although I am waitlisted, that’s more than I expected already. Again, thank you so much. You are amazing!
I just wanted to reach out to you and let you know that I got accepted into PA School and wanted to thank you so much for all of your help throughout this journey. I truly could not have done it without your help! Thank you again so much.
Working with Sarah one on one prior to my interview really helped ease my nerves and made me feel more prepared to answer any of the questions the committee would have for me. Sarah provided great feedback and amazing help on how to answer some of the more difficult questions you might encounter during an interview. I would recommend any pre-PA preparing for an interview to set up a mock interview with The PA Life Video Interview Service. I had a wonderful experience with Sarah and have received two interview offers.
I cannot thank you enough for the service you provide Pre-PAs. I utilized your mock interview with Sarah, which was so helpful! It really helped me prepare in the sense that I knew what to expect and wasn’t too surprised by what question types were presented and the format in which I received them in. I landed a total of five interviews and felt like all of them went smoothly! I was waitlisted for two of the programs and accepted to two as well! This is still very surreal to me and I don’t believe it has quite hit me yet that I am going to be a PA! I will be attending UNT HSC this fall! Thank you for the support you provide all of us that have been dreaming of this opportunity.
Hello! My experience with your service was so incredibly helpful! I was given such great advice for which I am so grateful!! I have an interview coming up in a couple of weeks so I will be sure to let you know of the outcome, but either way, thank you for all your help!!
Sarah has increased my confidence for the real interview. She was very professional and honest with her feedback. I would highly recommend everyone utilize The PA Life mock interview services.
I wanted to reach out and let you know that I was officially offered a seat by the Yale University Online PA program and have accepted. I want to thank you for all your help throughout the interview process and think a lot of my success came from that learning process. I can’t give exact questions however, let’s just say a lot of the questions you asked, aligned with questions asked during the real interview. I hope that helps you and future students applying to the program. Thank you again!
Just letting you know I received an Acceptance call today from ATSU in Mesa, AZ! This is the program I interviewed with this past Monday. I’m so excited and grateful! Thank you again for your support and coaching. I am going to interview with three more programs next month. I’m glad to have one option for sure!
I would highly recommend The PA Life mock interview service to all my fellow applicants. The feedback was constructive and useful. The whole experience made me feel so much better about my upcoming interviews. There was a variety of questions, so I felt well-prepared to answer anything that comes my way!
I just wanted to update you. I have had two interviews so far (the third got rescheduled for later) and got into both schools (Midwestern and Nashville)! Thank you again for all of your help. This mock interview prompted me to prepare more specific and relevant answers, which I think made a difference in my interviews.
I just wanted to let you know that I got accepted into the RFU PA program! Thank you for all your help and support during the application process. Couldn’t have done it without you!
I received an admission offer from Kansas State University PA program. Your input was essential in getting this offer. Thank you so much for your help and all you do!
First of all I wanted to wish you a happy new year 2020! I wanted to spread some good news. As promised I needed to let you know – I got into my top choice for PA school! I am so thankful for your help and invaluable advice during the mock interviews! They were well worth it!
My interviewer Mary was such an immense help! She made me feel comfortable and provided incredible tips on how to rephrase certain things during my interview. She even let me practice some questions twice. I felt very confident going into my first PA school interview the next day. Thank you!
I just wanted to reach out to you and update you on my interviews! So I have had two interviews so far and am ecstatic to let you know that I’ve been accepted to both of the programs that I’ve interviewed at! The mock interview that we did was exactly like both the program interviews and everything went smoothly. Thank you so much for all of the help!
I wanted to tell you that I interviewed with MEDEX on Friday, got the call yesterday that I’m accepted! I also interviewed with Pacific University on and I felt that went VERY well too. I should hear from them any day now. I will keep you in the loop. I appreciate all your help and support!
I want to let you know that I got accepted into Misericordia University PA program starting the Summer of 2021. So far, I have had two interviews, one rejection and one acceptance. I have two more interviews coming up, and other schools are still reviewing applications. You have been a huge part of my application process, and I just want to appreciate your time and efforts you put in during my application. Thank you, and God bless
Sarah is simply excellent. She truly provides great feedback and has such a nice manner of communicating effective constructive criticism. I will continue to recommend her services to anyone that needs it!
Sarah was super welcoming, understanding, and encouraging. Everyone is starting at different stages and has varying strengths, and she’s great at bringing out the best in people. I had my interview for Pace University several weeks after my mock interview and got an acceptance several hours later! Thank you so much for your help, Sarah, and The PA Life!
I’ve gotten the acceptance letter from Mercy! Hurray!! I couldn’t imagine how it would be without your help! Every piece of advice you gave was so beneficial, I just want to share this great news with you! I’m still waiting to hear back from York! I’ll keep you updated!
This was my second mock interview with Sarah Schultz and it was just as excellent as the first time! She provides invaluable insight, feedback, and constructive criticism. I highly recommend these services to any future PA applicants I come across!
Deanna was absolutely awesome. She was very prepared to answer any questions that I had and offered valuable advice that will make me successful in my upcoming interview. I would recommend her to anyone that wishes to utilize a mock interview.
Mary was awesome! I had a last-minute interview invitation at my top school, and she was able to make time for me! It was extremely helpful, and I got some experience answering questions I had never heard before. I got accepted to that program and I know this mock interview helped me immensely!
I got accepted into two PA programs and just received the acceptance to my top choice today. Thank you so much for all your help! I’m so glad I did the mock interview with you! I used all the tips you gave me and really believe it made me stand out during my interview. I cannot thank you enough for everything!!!
This is Kenzie Wheeler. We interviewed together back in November! I was in the interview process of my direct entry PA applications. I just wanted to let you know that… I got into my top choice school, RIT!!! I am so beyond excited; I cannot thank you enough. Your help and mock interview preparation were so vital in me sitting down and feeling cool and confident in my interview. I really do not think I would have done this well without you. You do amazing things for people. This was something I have wanted for years, and you played such a key role in helping me get there. Thank you, and please never forget the difference you make. You are incredible. I hope this new year treats you well. Keep doing what you do!
I am pleased to tell you that I have been accepted to PA school, starting in 2-weeks.? I appreciate everything you have done for me, from helping with my personal statement to preparing me for interviews. You have been with me since the beginning of the application process and I really wanted to thank you.
The mock interview really helped ease my mind about the interview and helped me prepare how to answer questions in an MMI style. I was accepted into the program, so I’m really glad I did this.
I had two interviews for PA school and was accepted to both!! I will be a member of Drexel University’s PA program class of 2024 cohort! Thank you so much for all the support you gave me with my interview. Without your advice, I could never have gotten to where I am today.
I just wanted to let you know I heard back from UW yesterday and I got into Medex! Thank you so much for all your helpful feedback and words of encouragement. It was more helpful than you know!
I wanted to let you know that my interview went so well and I just received my acceptance! Thank you so much for all of your help, I felt so much more relaxed and prepared, and your tips really helped me get through the questions.
My PA school interview went well!! Thank you so much for getting me in such late notice and helping me out during the mock interview!! I feel really good about the interview but all thanks to you!! As you mentioned, I was asked questions that had nothing to do with PA!! One of those questions was “If turned your car on right now, what type of music will be playing” Again, thank you!!
The mock interview with Sarah was amazing. She provided so much constructive criticism and so many useful tips. I would have never figured out my interview faults and mistakes without her. Will definitely recommend your services to others!
I know it has been a few months since my mock interview, but I wanted to give you an update. I’ve received seven interview invites and have been accepted to one so far! I’m super glad I ended up doing the mock interview because, with all my zoom interviews, it really did help me know what to expect. Thank you for your help!! I still have five interviews to attend in the next few weeks, but I thought I would let you know!
Thank you for helping me prepare for my interviews. Your feedback was really helpful. I got accepted to 2 programs. Once again, Thank You!
I just wanted to let you know that I was accepted in the UW MEDEX program at my home campus in Anchorage, AK. After the long journey I’ve had, I finally was accepted to my top choice! It still seems surreal and I couldn’t be more excited! Thank you so much for the help and insight you gave me. I truly believe it helped prepare me and not be as nervous. I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know who is applying in the future.
I am happy to provide an update. I received 5 acceptances for this cycle and will be attending Rush University PA Program starting in May 2022. Of course, I definitely have Sarah Schultz and Deanna Matzen from The PA Life to thank for their incredible help with my personal statement, instilling confidence in my ability to interview, and providing me with a lot of advice in this very difficult cycle.
I got in! Thank you so much for your help. Even if I hadn’t gotten an acceptance, I felt confident and calm in the interviews and very at peace with myself, so thank you for that. Damn, girl, you are good. You have at least three accepted clients in this program!
It was a wonderful service and was very helpful. I recieved an invitation to an interview at Salus University and I am waiting to hear from other schools.
I wanted to let you know I got accepted into the PA program at Mercy College and have another interview at Pace University PA program next week. Thank you so much for guiding me through this process. I just want you to know I really appreciate the time you put into working with me.
This past June, you helped me formulate my personal statement for my PA school applications. After our video chat and countless hours editing my CASPA information, I submitted my application and was then given the opportunity to interview at five PA programs. To prepare for my interviews, I would read my personal statement over and over again to remind myself of why I wanted to be a PA. This helped me succeed in my interviews. I was accepted to a few schools, but have I have made my final decision to matriculate into the University of Texas Medical Branch PA program in July! I wanted to follow up after I made my final decision to thank you for helping me with an important step to achieve this amazing life goal. Several of my friends are applying this upcoming cycle, and I will definitely be passing along your information. Again, thank you so much!
This was the missing piece I needed going into my second year as an applicant and being interviewed at my dream school. Thank you so much!
I was accepted to 3/3 schools and am attending my top choice – the University of South Alabama this May! I really must give a lot of credit to Kelly and her suggestions for my personal statement and especially to Sarah for her advice during my two mock interviews. I truly believe I would not have gotten in my first time without their help. Thank you for everything you do!
I want to say that my first-round interview went phenomenal and I am beyond thankful that I scheduled this mock interview with Sarah. She really helped me feel less nervous and confident in my answers. Her advice was very helpful and I will take the lessons that I learned with me for future interviews. I would definitely recommend this service to anyone with even the slightest bit of nervousness and doubt. It is worth the time and money
I just wanted to share that I got into USC! Woohoo!!! They just called me to share the good news. I’m feeling pretty shocked since that interview did not go as well in my head. I can’t believe I got into school during my first round of applications. This would not have been possible without you, and I really appreciate all the support you gave me throughout this process. ?
I just wanted to update you on my PA school process after my two interviews last week. I found out that I was waitlisted at one school and accepted to the other school! Thanks so much for all of your help with the mock interview!! Your tips certainly came in handy.
I did a mock interview before getting my first interview invite, and I received seven interviews. Out of those seven interviews, I was accepted to five PA schools and waitlisted at 2. I start PA school next year! Thank you, guys, for your help throughout this process!
I just want to follow up and let you know that I have been so fortunate enough to have conducted 3 interviews and received 3 acceptances, and I have decided to continue my educational journey at the OHSU PA program. I can’t thank you enough for all the help you’ve provided me, from helping me with my personal statement to mock interviews. I couldn’t have done this without your help, thank you.
I’m emailing you to let you know that I received an acceptance call yesterday! It’s my first cycle applying so I’m still in shock. This may sound weird to say, but you have been a part of my journey since the beginning when I was trying to figure out how to write my personal statement, to practicing for the interview that led to my acceptance. I genuinely believe that I would not have been accepted into the program if it weren’t for you.
Deanna was GREAT! She was so easy to talk to and put my nerves at ease. She gave AMAZING feedback and was more than willing to answer all of my questions. I truly feel much more prepared for my interview later in July!
I found the mock interview so helpful that I signed up for a second because I had several weeks between interviews and wanted to stay fresh. Sarah adapted on the fly to offer a mix of traditional and MMI questions, which was so helpful. She was wonderful and I was accepted to 4/5 programs where I interviewed (still waiting to hear officially from the fifth school)! Thank you all so much for helping me to feel prepared and confident going into those stressful interviews. I will be headed to the University of Utah next year and I’m so happy to have gotten into one of my reach schools.
My experience with Sarah and The PA Life Mock Interview Service was exceptional. She gave me excellent feedback and provided significant constructive criticism of my responses. I sometimes have trouble being vulnerable and suffer at times from nervousness. Sarah reacted very kindly and allowed me to gather myself. Sarah provided invaluable feedback on some of my responses that could use improvement, and I look forward to my in-person interview, where I can use her shared wisdom to my advantage. Her advice was incredible, and I recommend this service to any other PA applicants out there!
Mary (from The PA Life) was amazing & really helped me to prepare my answers and thoughts for my upcoming interview. She gave insight from the interviewer’s point of view and brought up things that I wouldn’t have thought of on my own. Mary was great at helping me to relax and making me realize that I shouldn’t be spouting off rehearsed answers but should instead engage in the conversation by exploring the answers in detail. I am very thankful for Mary and her time spent helping me.
I loved your service. I was able to get multiple interviews (and have continued to), but I was a late admission to the program I am currently in. I will recommend this service to any student trying to get into school. I wish I would’ve done this sooner, as I think it might have changed how early I was able to get in and get started. I love all you do, and I appreciate the level of service you provide.
Wow, I don’t know where to start. I got accepted to the program today. ????. It was nice. I thought I didn’t have a chance since, in the group interview, everyone was focusing heavily on the school’s religious affiliation. Thank you so much for everything. I couldn’t have done it without your help. I hope my experience inspires other students.
I’m thrilled to share that I was accepted to Emory and Northwestern’s PA programs. I’ll be joining the class of 2023 at Emory. Thank you again for all your services, this is so appreciated.
Sarah is amazing, she is great when it comes to feedback and focusing on the little details that one may not pay attention to. Sarah is also an immense help outside of the interview, she is always willing to help and always has a smile on her face. She is GREAT!
I just wanted to share some amazing news with you! I have been accepted into the MEDEX PA program in Seattle!!! I can’t thank you enough for all your help!! I am beyond excited and still can’t believe it is actually happening! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!!!!! 😀
Thank you so much for all your time and help again Ms. Schultz–not to mention your insightful tidbits on everything ranging from how past experience translates into applicability in the program and how it sets my application apart to set the stage about how weakness affected patient experience. It truly means a great deal–your constructive criticism and positive feedback are very much appreciated. Please let me know who I can forward and recommend your service to (aside from the feedback link) as you are not only professional, and an asset to the PA life, but also an expert as evident in your questions, feedback, and tips developed through years of well-honed experience.
It’s official! I got an acceptance call today from the program director, Theresa. I am so excited and thrilled about this next chapter of my life. My family, friends, and I were very emotional this morning Haha. I am truly super grateful for all your feedback and help this week, and throughout the entire process, it made a world of difference.
My experience with the mock interview was amazing. I had two mock interviews with Ms. Schultz and both taught me a lot about what I need to improve on. The best part about the mock interviews is that it helps you practice and challenges you to think on the spot. Ms. Schultz offered a lot of great insights about the good and bad parts in my responses and gave me tips on how to give a stronger response. Furthermore, she would use the experiences I had to help me come up with examples for each type of interview questions. She also tailored my mock interviews based on the interview formats of the school I was interviewing with. Having these mock interviews really helped calmed my nerves during my actual interview and they also helped me feel more confident in my experience. Thank you, Ms. Schultz!
I just got the email from Evansville inviting me to their program!!! Thank you so much for interviewing me and preparing me for this! Your advice on the group activity came in super handy! When someone in my group wasn’t talking, I asked them to speak up, and I offered to be the timekeeper. The interviewers noticed that! I also had a lot of out-of-the-box answers, thanks to your advice! Thank you for being such an awesome coach!
I am so grateful to have had this experience with Deanna prior to my upcoming interview. I feel far more prepared and equipped. Thank you for offering such supportive services!
It was so helpful to hear feedback and critiques on my answers. I definitely believe my answers will be stronger after my mock interview. It was also helpful to receive some encouragement. It definitely boosted my confidence going into my interviews! I would recommend this service to anyone applying to PA school!
I just wanted to thank you again for the practice interview. It was immensely helpful and helped me get rid of those nerves. My actual interview went great! I was offered a seat at the Univ of Pittsburgh hybrid program in the spring class, and I accepted! ?
I just wanted to email you and let you know that 3 weeks post-interview with Gannon, I was accepted into the class of 2023! I am so excited and thrilled and I know that your help, helped me. So, thank you!
Sarah was incredible! She told me pointers that could really help bring my answers together and effectively summarize my points at the end of every question. I was so appreciative of her help!
Thank you so much! It was a really awesome experience and opportunity. You gave me so many great points to add to my answers. I really value your perspective & thoughts. You also provided a lot of great constructive feedback & kept everything so positive. It helped a lot in boosting my confidence moving forward. I’ll definitely be reviewing the interview to take notes on all your great pointers.
Sarah did a great job at making me feel comfortable while answering the practice interview questions. I felt that her feedback was honest and truly geared toward helping me become a stronger candidate.
Sarah did an amazing job. Very thorough and helpful. I received so much feedback and really appreciated the time she took to help me with my answers. I will definitely recommend her and this service to my fellow colleagues.
I just wanted to reach out to let you know that I was accepted to Emory’s PA program last Friday! I also interviewed with Northwestern yesterday. I can’t express enough how valuable my mock interview experience was. For me, I think it helped me to understand the importance of carrying my answers forward to how my values/skills/experiences will help me as a PA, which is something that I was struggling to incorporate prior to my mock interview. Thank you very much for your support!
I got accepted to the PA program that I interviewed with after our mock interview and I could not be more excited about my future! Thank you again for your feedback and know that the service you provide is invaluable. I applied many of the strategies you suggested while I was prepping, then used them during the actual interview as well as the group activity, and they culminated in my interview performance being a hundred times better than it was last year.
I received an invitation for an interview on Friday, October 2nd, and received the date of the interview the following Monday, October 5th stating my interview day will be on Wednesday, October 7th! Words cannot express how thankful I am for Deanna! She squeezed me into her schedule at the very last minute! Deanna was super helpful!! She gave me really good feedback during my mock interview with her and helped me formulate answers to certain questions that made me feel pretty confident on the day of the interview. I HIGHLY recommend this service to anyone!! It is soooo worth it!! THANK YOU DEANNA!!
Deanna, your advice was great! I was very unprepared for this mock interview, but you were able to work with me very patiently, and I’m very thankful. I did my interview and utilized your advice, and I feel very confident about it, so thanks again!
I booked this appointment because I received an interview invitation. Sarah was wonderful! She is the perfect balance of sweet and supportive, but she is transparent with how to improve my responses and make sure they answer the question behind the question. She is wonderful, and if I wanted a follow up I would certainly book with her again!
I just got into my dream school, Drexel!!!! The mock interview with Sarah helped me tremendously in preparation for the interview. I’m so glad I used the service because the feedback I got was sooo helpful. I was very calm during the actual interview because I had gone through it with Sarah. Definitely recommend the service to anyone who gets nervous during interviews. Thank you, Sarah!!!!!!
Deanna Matzen was my interviewer and she was awesome! She gave me great feedback and went the extra mile to find out some information for me even after the interview. I think this practice was so helpful!
The mock interview was incredibly helpful! Sarah gave me great tips and ways to better answer the questions. I truly appreciate this service.
I just got the acceptance call from USC! Thank you so much! Your counseling and support really gave me the clarity and confidence I needed during my interview. I could not have done it without you.
I just wanted to tell you thank you again for the advice during the mock interview. So far I have only been offered one interview and I applied to three schools. I had my interview last Friday and Campbell just called and offered me a spot in their Program! I couldn’t be more grateful and excited.
Deanna (from The PA Life) was truly everything you would want in a mock interviewer. She is so genuine, truly present, and in it for your absolute best interest providing amazing feedback while making you feel comfortable. I know nerves get the best of me and even the idea of a mock interview got me nervous but the moment I got onto zoom with Deanna- I felt completely at ease. I had my real interview today and I felt so confident and prepared! I also have had experience doing a mock interview from another platform and left feeling dissatisfied and not in a better place. That was NOT the case with Deanna and The PA Life! Highly recommend!!!!!!!
I just wanted to let you know I accepted a spot at the University of Dubuque’s PA program! I want to thank you for all your help and support in this process and for all the positivity you brought my way. Thanks for all you do and I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with you! I would recommend you highly to anyone.
I appreciate this service so much!! Sarah gave me invaluable feedback to help me to better prepare for my interview! I feel so much more confident moving towards my interview date!!
I had a wonderful application cycle. The mock interview certainly helped because I was accepted into every school I interviewed at! My grades (cGPA 3.56 and sGPA 3.40) are not stellar, so I had to make every other part of my application strong- especially the interview. It was definitely worth it to purchase the mock interview service. I would watch my mock interview video right before every interview I had to prepare. I am so thankful for the PA Life and Ms. Matzen’s help! I am very excited to begin school!
Thank you again for doing the mock interview with me a few weeks ago. The interview at St. John’s University went very well, and I received an acceptance letter this week! The interview helped me so much and allowed me to fine-tune my answers, thank you again.
I was blown away by how wonderful my interview with Sarah from The PA Life was. I was extremely comfortable and felt like I could ask her any question. Sarah really took the time to give detailed and specific feedback to each and every response I gave, and she didn’t just give me phrases to memorize. She helped me polish and fine-tune my responses, and she gave me some phenomenal tips on how to navigate questions/answers I was unsure of. After my mock interview with Sarah, I know I will have confident and concrete answers at my interview, regardless of any question the interviewers throw my way. This is an excellent resource, and I would highly recommend this service to all my fellow Pre-PAs.
I just wanted to let you know that the majority of my interviews have gone really well! So far, I’ve received six interview invites and have interviewed for five schools. Midwestern (AZ) just got back to me a bit ago, and they sent me an acceptance email! I am beyond thrilled! I just wanted to thank you so much for your help! Your mock interview gave me a lot of confidence that I was able to carry into my interviews! I appreciated having the opportunity to practice my interview skills with you. I wanted to let you know just how much you’ve helped me with my application process (with my interviews, personal statement, and just my confidence in general)! Thank you so much for all of the advice over the past few months!
Thanks to the PA life and Deanna I was accepted to ECU PA program this cycle. I’m starting my program next fall. I have been part of the PA life community and a member of the leadership team at the virtual pre-PA club with Deanna and others. I’m preparing a video presentation about how to become a PA for IMG. I’m a nontraditional app and abnormally normal applicant 😆. The video will be posted on the IMG space of the community. I’m so happy to share my experience and help pre-PA like me.
I did two mock interviews with Sarah, and they were so helpful! I will be attending Stanford in August for PA school, and I am SO excited! The mock interviews really allowed me to go into my interviews more prepared and confident. Thank you so much!
Thank you for your help to help me get over the initial nervous feelings and the unknowns about PA school interviews. This helped me greatly to know what preparations I still need to undertake and how to refine my answers. Thank you! 🙂
Deanna was amazing! She was very warm and kind. She gave me really good feedback that I will make sure to take with me on the interview day.
I just got the call that I had been waiting for years. I got accepted to Bay Path PA Program!!!!!!!! Omg, I am so excited. Thank you so much for your big help and support!
The interview was a perfect amount of constructive criticism and a confidence booster. I would highly recommend this service to anyone!
I received an acceptance call from USC! I’m going to be a PA! ??⚕️ I’m so overfilled with joy and gratitude!! All of my experiences led to this, and I can’t help but feel immense gratitude for every single person that was part of this journey. You were a huge component of this journey, and I am so appreciative of all of your help. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
I think having this mock interview was perfect for me in preparing for my upcoming interview next week. I have never actually done an interview, so practicing how to prepare answers on the spot while properly answering the question was very helpful. I have lots of room to improve, but I think this was the perfect learning opportunity for me, and it got some of my nerves out. Sarah was so nice and encouraging. Even though I struggled through lots of questions, she always gave me helpful tips and tricks to improve my answers and thought processes. I personally wish I would have done this sooner because it is such a great tool for PA school applicants.
I have my first interview today and one next week. I couldn’t be more grateful for this program and how I feel much more confident and prepared now than prior to the mock interview. I received a lot of great feedback and tips throughout the process that I will be sure to use during my future interviews!
Ever since I did a mock interview with Sarah in September 2021, I was accepted to 6 PA programs. After much thought and consideration of each program, I ended up selecting Duke University, which is where I will be attending this August. Having so many great contenders made the decision a difficult one. But I wish to extend my sincere gratitude to you, Sarah, and The PA Life for your assistance and everything you do for aspiring PAs! I am most appreciative!!
I could not be more pleased with my mock interview with Sarah. She provided me with extremely valuable, personalized insight and helpful tips that bolstered my confidence and guided my preparation for my upcoming MMI interview. It was very evident from the start that Sarah is well-versed and highly experienced in this field. She was able to answer all my (many) questions with ease, she consciously formulated her constructive criticism in a positive way, and her kind, compassionate, and thoughtful delivery was very much appreciated during this stressful time. This hands-down will be the best investment that I have made in my interview preparations. I am extremely grateful for her time and services and will be recommending her to future applicants!
We did a mock interview nearly a year ago and you gave me valuable feedback and the recording made me see I had so much work left to do. The school I had an interview for last year ended up canceling since they didn’t open their program. I went back and practiced using your tips for an MMI last month I had and did ok! I got waitlisted for that school but got accepted into another and will be starting at Duke in August. Thank you so much for your help and support and pointers. They were beyond valuable. Wishing you a wonderful week!
I loved how friendly and informative the Mock Interview process was. I got very helpful insight into how to phrase my responses while remaining unique. I signed up for the service after receiving two interview invitations. I was offered automatic acceptance to both programs within 6 days!
I had a wonderful experience with Sarah from the PA Life mock interview team. She asked me questions that matched my interview style (traditional and ethical) and truly tried to select questions that would benefit me the most to practice. She provided feedback after each question and was kind enough to record the session for me and provide me with a link. I highly recommend this service to any pre-PAs who want to practice for their upcoming interviews!
Sarah is absolutely the best! She has now helped me with my personal statement, supplemental, and mock interview and has exceeded all my expectations! She gives excellent advice and great insight into what the admissions committee is looking for. She has been the biggest help throughout my PA journey thus far, and I would recommend Sarah, and The PA Life, in a heartbeat to any pre-PA!
I scheduled a mock interview before my third interview because I felt as I needed confidence and comfort going into this interview. After my mock interview with Sarah, I definitely wished I utilized this resource before my first interview. I feel very confident going into my interview. Sarah provided amazing feedback and pointers on how to enhance my answers from great to AMAZING!
I wanted to check-in and pass on some great news – I GOT INTO PA SCHOOL! I am going to be a Trojan PA! Thank you so much for helping me make this possible! Thank you for giving me the confidence to take on the interview process.. as none other than myself. I am very excited and wanted to pass along the great news. I’ll always be sure to refer any prospective students your way.
Deanna was very helpful in putting the final touches on my interview. I enjoyed every moment of the conversation and I believe I am nailing my interview tomorrow. Thank you for all you do
Sarah, from The PA Life, was a terrific interviewer. I have had one other mock interview in the past, so this is my second one. Let me tell you, Sarah was the best interviewer I have ever had. She had such helpful feedback, and it felt like she cared about my performance in my upcoming PA school interview. The questions she had were great, and some of them caught me off-guard, which is a good thing. Overall, I would rate Sarah and The PA Life 5/5 stars!!
I got accepted into PA school! Yes, I finally did it. I will be going to Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences University ( MCPHS ) – Worcester campus about 40 minutes away from Boston starting January 2020. Since receiving the news I have been making arrangements to move, trying to spend time with family and friends as well as work as much as I can to save. I wanted to share this news with you because I could not have reached my dream without your help Ms.Schultz! Your guidance with my mock interview truly guided me to put the cherry on the cake so to speak on my application. I am so thankful and grateful to you for everything you helped me with and I hope I can be an example for your future applicants; When you truly have a dream, hard work, perseverance, and steadfast dedication can make it happen. And of course, being WELL prepared. Thank you again for everything!
I have received three interview offers and was nervous about being prepared for them. Talking through questions with Sarah and practicing my answers was so beneficial! It will absolutely help me relax on my interview days and know that I am prepared. I really was happy with this service and would recommend it to anyone.
I received a phone call last night from Yale School of Medicine PA Online and was offered a seat in their next cohort starting in January 2021!!! I’m beyond excited!!!! This has been a dream of mine for years and it’s here. I wanted to come back to you and sincerely thank you for helping me achieve my goal and get to where I am today. You were a meaningful part of my journey and I think you should know how much of an impact you had. Thank you for your guidance, insight, and expertise and for working with me to craft a new personal statement that truly reflected who I am.
Got accepted to UW. I wanted to thank you for giving me amazing tips for the interview. I did get nervous the day before the interview; however, I remembered your tips for staying positive and wrapping up the scenario, and I did just that. Thank you for being part of my journey Deanna. I really appreciate it.
This service is the best thing that I have spent my money on. I wouldn’t be where I am today without Sarah! The interview exposure is such a valuable experience and really highlighted the areas where I need to improve. Sarah gave honest feedback that was incredibly helpful. This interview allowed me to gauge how I appear on zoom, the tech glitches that I may experience on interview day/how to deal with them professionally, and Sarah even had specific feedback for me on how to appear better on camera (looking at the camera, etc). I can’t express how much this has helped me!
I wanted to let you know that I was accepted to my top school. I am so excited and I wanted to thank you for your help during the mock interview! I am unquestionably going to recommend mock interviewing to anyone I know who is applying to PA school, it definitely had a positive impact on my interviews and acceptances.
By completing the mock interview I was able to gain the confidence I needed to perform well on my interview date. Throughout my interviews, I was complimented on my strong interviewing skills and I attribute that to the mock interview I completed. I have now received an offer from my dream school and I can’t wait to start in August of next year!
Sarah was so great at helping me focus on my strengths in order to tell my unique story. She was very encouraging and helped me lessen the anxiety of meeting and talking to a stranger in a PA school interview. Highly recommend!
I met with Mary twice to prepare for my PA interviews, and she was extremely helpful. She provided practical tips that I used for both of my interviews. I felt at ease and confident during my interviews following her advice and strategies. Mary genuinely prepared me well, and I am so grateful I had the chance to prep with her. I wholeheartedly recommend Mary and The PA Life Mock Interview Service. In addition to the interview preparation, my interviewer was easily reached via email with any questions I had. She took the time to answer all my questions/concerns very thoroughly and at no additional charge! Thank you, Mary (and The PA Life), for helping me prepare and feel this confident!
This interview was very beneficial and helped me identify points in my responses that were either lacking or strong. Sarah gave very good constructive criticism and I am happy with the advice she gave. Definitely will recommend this service to other pre-pas I know!
I wanted to send you a quick life update and another BIG thank you! I received my acceptance at the University of Utah’s PA Program on Monday and couldn’t be happier. Thank you for all your help with my essay and interview prep. Both of these services that you provided were so helpful in my success. I will highly recommend you to any future PA student.
I’m extremely grateful for Sarah. I had my first mock interview with her in October when I had my first interview. Since then, I have had been accepted to the University of La Verne. I appreciate her help so much because reviewing our recording helped me loosen up and figure out how to modify my answers so that they flowed. Having the opportunity to continue to interview for four more schools, I came to Sarah to bolster my skills and warm up. The affirmations helped me to acknowledge my strengths versus dwelling on my weaknesses, which can be easy since this is my third year applying. However, I am happy to say though it is my third cycle applying, it is MY LAST CYCLE! Sarah was part of that process.
I received two invitations for an interview, and this mock interview was very informative for me because this is the first time I will be interviewing with the PA programs. I received personal insights on things that I could improve on to make a better impression on the interviewers as well. I am glad I got this mock interview. Thank you!
I just wanted to let you know that I got accepted to the first school I interviewed at! I am so grateful for you helping me to feel more confident on the interview day. Thanks for all you do!!
The mock interview was excellent! Sarah was wonderful & extremely helpful. I received great tips and felt confident going into my actual interview. I highly recommend this amazing option to help ace your interview!
I received an early acceptance! I just wanted to thank you so much for all your help. You are a pro and I’m so thankful for you! You helped me more than you’ll ever know! I’m so excited! You saved me!!!!
I hope you remember me lol. Your mock interview helped me a lot. I was accepted to two schools thus far and I am waiting to hear back from my first choice sometime next week. Thank you so much!!
We did a mock interview about three weeks ago in preparation for my interview with Drexel University. I wanted to let you know that I was accepted to the program earlier this week. I am thrilled. Thank you so much again!
I wanted to reach out and thank you for all of your help throughout my entire application process — your words, advice, and support made a world of a difference to me, and I’m sure everyone who has had the pleasure of working with you feels the exact same way. I thought I’d let you know that after my Stanford and Duke interviews over the past couple of weeks, I received acceptance to both programs! I’m still on cloud 9 and I don’t believe I’ll be coming down anytime soon. And as of early this week, I officially committed to Stanford University’s PA program and I begin in August!!! Thank you again for everything you’ve done to help!
Thank you, Sarah. I appreciate how you have given me the confidence in answering, “tell me about yourself.” I needed the reminder that I should be proud of my journey to where I am now and all the work I have put into to get to this point. My interview is coming up, and I am excited to say my nerves have been diminished.
I wanted to update you on my interviews and admission decisions. I did the University of Pittsburgh interview immediately after the second mock interview we did and, wouldn’t you know it, the MMI I did with two other applicants was VERBATIM what we went over the day before. I offered to keep track of time on my computer, and I used all the inviting language you taught me. The two scenarios they presented were even almost EXACTLY the same as the ones you gave me. It went very smoothly, although I was nervous to be interviewing over Zoom with 60 other applicants. I got accepted! So, I will be moving back to my home city of Pittsburgh in December and starting school at the beginning of January. Thank you so much for all of your help and advice with this process. You made me feel so much more confident and prepared through the entire thing. I will be recommending your services to anyone I meet who is thinking about applying to a PA school!!
I feel as though my experience with Deanna was integral in my acceptance to my top choice! I’d been wait-listed following four other interviews, but Deanna worked with me to fine-tune my interview skills and I got where I want! I would HIGHLY recommend this service for anyone who feels they could use some work on their interviewing skills, or honestly, just anyone in general!
Deanna did an amazing job! She listened to my answers carefully and provided feedback that was clear and insightful. She has given me the right tools to help me ace my interview!
I had two programs interview invites and I received acceptances to both! For my second interview, it was with one of the top programs in the country, and I received early acceptance 5 days after my interview! Thank you for your mock interview service and for the assistance in helping me achieve this!!
I am reaching out to update you regarding my PA school interview. I am so grateful for your feedback and tips. Early this afternoon, I received an acceptance letter from Mercy College. I can’t thank you enough for dedicating some of your time to helping me prepare for my interview. You were extremely helpful.
Sarah was (and is) an amazing coach! She was patient with me from the beginning to the end of the session. She’s deeply knowledgeable and experienced, she provides great feedback at the end of each question. She gives great pointers and various approaches on how to answer the questions. Importantly, she listens to everything I say!! Wowza!! Honestly, at the end of the session, I feel a lot more confident, and I have a better understanding of how to answer other questions. Sarah did an amazing job, she provided me with a safe and comfortable space which was helpful because I felt less anxious! Overall, I’m very satisfied with the service, I am definitely going to schedule another appointment(s) with Sarah. I am also 100% recommend her as a coach to anyone who is looking to improve their interviewing skills.
I had a mock interview with you a few days ago for Canisius college. I wanted to let you know that I have been notified that I have been accepted into their PA program. Thank you for being so kind and making me feel relaxed and prepared for my big day.
Sarah was so helpful, accommodating my needs, and I would highly recommend her to a friend/peer. I love this company and the people that work here!
I am so excited that I must share the amazing news I’ve got- I got accepted to physician assistant program at USC! I couldn’t be happier after this long journey of 6 years of hard work until this moment. I wanted to thank you so much for your help and advice. I appreciate your help so much.
Thank you so much for this mock interview! I feel better prepared and more confident about my upcoming interview. Sarah was positive, encouraging, and so helpful and I truly appreciate all the advice she gave! I was nervous for my interview but now I look forward to it!
I had a mock interview with Sarah and had a wonderful experience. I got accepted to both Emory University and the University of Utah PA Programs. ? I will be attending the University of Utah on May 10. I loved this resource. Thank you for creating these amazing resources.
This mock interview with Ms. Schultz was the second time I interacted with her (first was for an essay revision. She has always been professional, helpful, and very responsive to my emails. I am going to schedule a second mock interview with Ms. Schultz. I appreciate The PA Life for offering consistently great services to pre-PAs.
I wanted to update you and say I’ve been accepted into two programs (waiting for two more responses) with Jefferson University (my program of choice) being one of them. Thank you for all your help and your tips and for making this a genuinely joyful 2022!
