PERSONAL STATEMENTS AND INTERVIEW WORKSHOPS

The University of Arizona's College of Medicine has invited us to their Applicant Information Session Series. SEE THE FLYER BELOW


Why should you attend?


The application process for PA schools can be very lengthy! Not only do you have to answer questions for each college but you also have to include references, personal statements, and extracurricular activities! The most overwhelming portion of the process is the personal statment, which hopefullty leads to your interview. Being prepared for each step is one of the best ways to ensure you have tried your hardest to get accepted into your dream school.


If you plan on attending these workshops feel free to add your name to the following sign up sheet! WE WILL NOT BE GOING AS A GROUP, but I would like a head count for Lori Vargo the coordinator of the events.

VOLUNTEERING

Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation (SAAF)

Do you need volunteer hours but have no time to go through grueling application processes? Then Walk In Wednesdays at SAAF may be for you!


"Held every Wednesday night from 6:00pm–8:00pm at SAAF, this is a volunteer work party in a fun and social setting. Projects vary depending on agency needs, but typically feature hands-on work such as bulk mailings or assembling condom packets. Groups are encouraged to RSVP ahead of time, but individuals are welcome to just drop in and help. WIW is a great way to meet other volunteers and to get to know SAAF."


***This is not through the club so feel free to attend whenever you can. If you have questions feel free to contact the club email or SAAF directly. If you show proof you attended this event you will receive a point!
