    • I live in Anacortes, which is the first island of Washington's San Juan Island chain. A great place to live. We have had several PA jobs, some closed as no applicants came forward. The hospital has one posted now (below). If you have a strong interest in interventional medicine, I know of a possible second one.   https://pm.healthcaresource.com/cs/islandhospital#/job/604

    • I was also accepted with a lower end GPA 3.1 something.  Doing well in PA school, staying above 90%, failing is 80% so have to work hard.  It can be done.
    • @TTURedRaider Hi! I've read over some of your posts and hope it's okay to maybe ask a few questions! I don't see a thread directly relating to my thoughts. I am currently getting ready to finish up my first semester of didactic year (PA school) and am having serious regrets about not pursuing medical school instead. I don't feel like I am where I want to be and don't feel like I am on the same plane of enthusiasm and contentment with the PA profession or our studies as my peers are. This is something I have felt for quite some time, even before starting, but I generally grow to love things gradually, so I thought I may find happiness and my wishes for med school would wane. They aren't.  I have spoken with a few local med schools who don't seem to feel that leaving PA school would hurt my chances of acceptance in any way (I'm carrying very good grades) but do you think this seems like a crazy idea to leave and not finish? I wouldn't be able to apply to med school until next year but would take a couple more science intensive courses in the mean time. My program is pretty expensive and staying in when my heart isn't in it seems irresponsible. I also need adequate time to study for the MCAT and take a couple science courses. Background info: my PA program is fantastic. I feel like they set students up to succeed and I have no issue with them or the program, I just feel more and more unfulfilled and regretful.  Thanks for any and all thoughts!
