  1. I live in a small town in a small county in eastern Iowa. When the Covid vaccines were getting ready to be released to the County Public Health department being on the local Fire Department I had a letter forwarded to me in regards to out First Responders being the first to receive the vaccine. Down at the bottom of the letter was a blurb noting that demand was going to outstrip the vaccination sites. It also suggested that a qualified medical person could apply to set up a satellite vaccination clinic. I'm a Physician Assistant and I applied and was approved. I was able to get all of our EMT/

  6. Accepted!!! I got a text from one of my interviewers asking if I could chat at 4pm. I accidentally clicked FaceTime, hung up, apologized, she said she prefers FaceTime, I consented, we talked, and it felt damn good. I interviewed on 2/6, yellow group. I can’t wait to meet you all! Just sent my request to join the FB group.

  10. Hi guys! I received great news that I've been accepted into the University of Tampa PA program today via phonecall at 10:41AM pacific time. This has been a 12 year process for me and I am literally in tears of happiness. For those who graduated undergrad with a horrific GPA and am a 30+ year old applicant like me, continue to work hard for your dreams. Feel free to contact me anytime for any advice. While my dream is to become a competent PA, I also want it to be my life goal to help others receive admission into grad school too.

  11. Congratulations to everyone who has received an interview! Mine is scheduled for 2/6. Does anyone else who is interviewing 2/6 want to do a zoom meet ahead of time so that the group portions of the interview feel more comfortable?

  17. I understand it's disappointing to be rejected, but you seem to think you deserve an acceptance. If this attitude is coming across even subconsciously om your personal statement or interviews, I can almost promise you it's playing a role in the rejections. If programs only cared about stats, you would have likely gotten a seat. Programs "want" a team player, someone who is humble and ready to learn. They do not want someone who is going to sit in class sulking about their psych and ESS major classmates. If this was me, I would bump up the patient care experience (you're right that EMS instruct

  18. I dunno, I thought there was plenty of explanation about how an mRNA vaccine works online. I'm actually pretty sick of hearing how mRNA needs a lipid capsule to get into the cytoplasm, and never touches the nucleus. But I mean really... as soon as I heard "mRNA to make the spike protein" I knew exactly how the vaccine worked. I don't "go back to school" by going, well, to school. I use reputable online resources, with free CME if I can get it, since I learned to teach myself about medicine as part of PA school.

  20. If I’m going to be very honest with you guys..this program let me down heavy... I was very excited about this school but once I got the interview...I did more research and I’m not happy with the apartments they recommended, the city area/location of the school, the size of the school, the high cost of tuition, and the layout of the interview. When I interviewed the guy said that a lot of out of state applicants live in LA because they wanna experience the “city life” and honestly driving 45 min to the campus would not be fun. I did get accepted but they didn’t deliver me the excitement I was i

  29. Hi, I just wanted to say I am sorry to those that did have a bad experience but it is not that way for everyone. I have had 4 other interview experiences and this one was definitely top two. I have had a group interview where the questions were traditional, I have had an MMI format which is all situational, and two interviews that were majority traditional question with 2 faculty members and just me. It seems as though everyone had a different experience when it comes to question style. In my opinion (again this is just my opinion), there are two factors that go into an interview and how it pl

  31. Here’s a counter-point, not necessarily because I have strong opinions but because it’s a worthwhile discussion: what value does the physical exam actually bring? One of my MD practice partners has been working on the concept of the “evidence-based physical exam,” and I’ve found it fascinating. It’s actually something of a return to the core Osler kind of point of view. History-taking should get you most of the way to any diagnosis, or so goes the theory, and any physical exam (or blood work, or imaging) should ideally be something you do to confirm the things you’re pretty sure you know,

  32. Received mine as well this morning. Yeah it’s been awful waiting this long and holding on to this tiny sliver of hope, but it helps me to figure out my next steps. “How can I make myself and my application better” Just keep pushing. We’ll get there.

  36. Had my interview today. It was a long day but it was enjoyable. The staff and students were really great, they were all very nice and really seemed to have a great sense of humor. The director Michael DeRosa seems like a really cool guy as well. Would love to go there.

  41. way to own your own education still dismayed at lack of insight...... go open a book, read CME (NEJM has been providing FREE resources on covid for a year) heck even watch some news casts and try to figure out the facts, but above all education is key. This is a quote from you that I had to go re-read as it is floored me on so many levels..... Sounds like getting Covid would have been easier and less painful for you? How do you know you are not contagious with the virus? This is something that scares me about these mRNA vaccines. Not enough research, but I guess we
