  4. Hey future PA Family, Ill first preference this by saying i am by no means an expert or professional but im someone who is hard headed and made a lot of mistakes. Applied to 20 schools my first year and got 0 interviews and applied the following year and got 9 from 20 or 21 (hard to remember) and accepted into all and waitlisted at the one im currently attending. I'm on break after finals and wanted to extend a hand in anyway i can. So i would love to help with resumes and talk about mistakes i made and give all the advice i can. Feel free to DM me and ill do whatever i can. From essay

  8. anyone else in the crew thats on the "waitlist to interview", kinda assuming it was a soft no? From this thread I haven't seen anyone get an Interview from that group. I also have not seen any posts about rejections from this group. I am net happy with how this cycle turned out, so not devastated or anything, but just hoping to get out of limbo and get a real definite update soon. good luck everyone!!

  10. yup, I have a lot of free time on my hands working solo night shifts.... anyway, some of these things have been listed here over the years, but thought I would put them all in one place 1. your first job is about leaning your trade, not about money 2. if you can afford to do a residency in your field of choice, do it! see #1 above 3. as a new grad you can have 2 of the following 3 if you are lucky; location, specialty, salary. choose wisely. 4. don't buy a $50,000 car right out of school. a good rule of thumb is take your yearly salary and divide it by 3. at most you s

  11. I personally would retake the gen bios, I feel like a lot of classes in PA school build upon that material and showing you can retake it and get an A would look better (even though you didnt use them as prereqs).

  12. I'm in the same boat, I sent my email RSVP minutes after I got the invitation too. I tried calling the administrative assistant's number that was provided to see if she got my email, but no dice. I really hope they got our RSVPs!

  13. I got mine three weeks ago, and no.superpowers.at.all. No xray vision, no laser beams. I haven't tried flying yet, but I have no reason to think that will suddenly work. I did notice that I watched Les Miserables over the weekend and now I can't get the music out of my head. Is that a side effect? Maybe that should've have been listed on the sheet they gave me.

  14. Current student here! There are currently plans for a virtual pizza night, but as the pandemic has taught us nothing is set in stone. Follow up emails will include further information for those of you interviewing. For some other questions I've been seeing - I am sure they will address the probationary status in the interview, but the faculty have been working extremely hard and I have no doubt that their work will pay off at this years reassessment. So over the last 6+ months not only have the faculty had to transition to entirely online, but they've also had to go through applications f

  16. I think depending on the amount of acceptances they're sending out, they'll send out a few over the next few days and then probably next week have a mass day of accept/rejects for everyone that has interviewed this cycle and not heard back yet.

  17. I interviewed back in the fall on the first interview week and just got accepted off the waitlist last week, however will be declining. So don't lose hope, it definitely can happen! :)

  18. Hey guys! Just wanted to update ya’ll. I emailed Garrett about my application and here was his response. “We work on a rolling admissions basis and have been holding interviews throughout the cycle. Currently 51 of the 60 seats have been filled so we will most likely be holding one or two more interviews in March/April.” Fingers crossed! Good luck everyone!

  19. Each program is going to differ on what they want in terms of PCE and HCE. Look and see what programs you're interested in - most have a list of things they like. Many programs want PCE or HCE to be paid experience because volunteer experiences are generally more limited roles.

  22. Very true BUT The fact of the matter is that YOU CAN NOT WORK IN A MINUTE CLINIC IN MASS. No matter your qualifications, or abilities you are not allowed, but some new grad NP can...... sad and needs to change.

  25. From those I have spoken with both personally and online these are BY FAR the top two reasons. Obviously over the last 10 months COVID has played a significant role as well, but in the past it was lack of flexibility by the candidates. Can't comment on nursing as I've never been one, and have no interest in being one. But, having been a teacher, we are having a teacher shortage because it has a ~$35-40k starting salary requiring at minimum a bachelors degree and every day is straight abuse from students, parents, and admin. We think we have it bad in medicine...teachers laugh

  26. The HHS director straight up LIED about having the reserve doses just a few days ago...then came out today and said it was a "paper launch" and they have none. I swear to gawd this is the worst administration in the history of this country.

  27. Hi guys! I just received an interview invite for February and was wondering if anyone could provide me some insight about the interview? I’ve interviewed with FSU and they had 10 MMI stations, but I see FIU only has 4 so wondering how that’s set to pan out. Any insight is appreciated thanks and congrats to everyone accepted so far!!

  28. Hi Newbie! Congrats on your acceptance! Thats a really big deal! There is not currently a facebook group as less than half of your class has been accepted so far - Touro tends to hav later interviews than most programs - you were one of the early ones. We will have one up for you some time in the next few months once more of your classmates have been accepted. I do know there are a few people who follow this discussion who have also been accepted so you can always try to connect on here.

  29. Not quick to emotion, just slightly annoyed by your lack of awareness, empathy, ignorance, and arrogance: which ultimately has partially contributed to the slump in our profession you seem to not believe. I still find your original post derogatory to those whom might have done the same thing you did, yet had a different experience. I read it again, still got the same erk. Frankly something I’d expect to see on the huddle. I do appreciate the drink offer, but the passive aggressive nature of it in general, once again, is irritating.

  30. That’s not what this means. Christ. Equity within the current employee group. We have this with all of our hires and it’s part of the salary description. You are not gonna be paid 150K if the most experienced person in the labor pool is currently making 105K, no matter what you think your experience and qualifications are worth or what they might be worth someplace else. They’re going to fit you into their group salary structure. So it’s equitable.

  32. Just want to note after the interview I had, i feel the interviewers really got to truly understand me as a whole. I had a previous interview elsewhere that only asked 2 questions in 6 minutes and that was it... there was so much they didn't know about me. The interview format at le moyne reflects how down to earth this university is by wanting to get to know the applicants on a deeper level. Anyways, as a note for future interviewees who are looking back at this page, don't memorize responses!!! be yourself, be genuine, and speak from the heart

  34. With some of the horror stories I've read here and elsewhere...honestly I wouldn't consider a job "secured" until I walk in on day 1. In other words, continue to apply to other positions.

  35. I am a new PA having just started in primary care. I think more useful that pance prep would be really focusing on some core issues that you are definitely going to experience, likely your first day back. These include diabetes (alot of new meds and guidelines), HTN, obesity, osteoarthritis, low back pain, CHF, CKD (stages and common medications that are contraindicated if GFR below 60), CAD (there are several meds with proven mortality benefit), obesity... again. Also review guidelines for work up of thyroid nodules, lung nodules, adrenal incidentalomas etc. Review the basic lab work ups and

  36. You're young and just starting out. There is likely still time to recover from mistakes. Life presents you with learning opportunities over and over until you learn the particular lesson. You either develop your character or you don't -- it's your call. I see a few words peeking out from your story that sounds like you still might be making excuses for your mistake; I would tell you to stop that. There will be many times in your life that conditions will give you the opportunity to do the wrong thing and you just can't let that happen in matters of character. In the end, it's your most pr

  37. Congratulations to everyone who has been accepted!! I interviewed on 11/11 and have not heard back. Re-applicant too. I really felt like my interview went poorly so I’m not getting my hopes up. It took a lot of thinking but this will be the end of my PA journey if I do not get in this year. Congrats again to the class of 2023. I wish you all the best in your journey to becoming a PA-C, and in the profession.

  44. For you prospective PA students who would consider this proposal, don't. While the OP may have gotten in with "lower stats," this doesn't necessarily make them qualified to review your own Personal Statement. In addition, being charged by a stranger for feedback that may actually harm your application would be a waste of time and money (regardless of how much was charged). If you're looking for constructive feedback, use your school's designated Writing Center.

  45. In-Hospital Emergencies demand a playbook in your head for rapid evaluation and management. The general rules are: Get as much information as quickly as possible (emergencies are the only situation when and “H&P” is not “what you should do first.” The patient’s medex is critical information. •Rule out life-threatening things. • Treat treatable things. • Call for back-up. Common In-Hospital Presentations: ABDOMINAL PAIN Quick Points • Check the medications (narcotics, anticholinergics, and others can cause vomiting or obstruction). • R
