  5. 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?

  6. I still haven’t heard from UTRGV. No acceptance, rejection or waitlist. I’m guessing I’ll hear from them tomorrow? Anyone else not hear anything? I still want to decide from this school and another.

  7. I feel you on the factors here, but I think you kinda left out Passion and Scope. The basics (money, time, etc) might not be well-received here because many of us like myself have known from the start that PA was our passion and the direction we wanted to go. I‘ve never considered MD/DO, I knew that my heart was in becoming a PA and that’s the only thing that I’ve been working toward Just some alternative feedback. I appreciate your post regardless.

  10. I just got an email saying I’m not being offered an interview, but I already did interview with them?? Is there a second round of interviews they do to further narrow it down? I’m so confused

  12. Huh. They flat out said that? Pretty incredible. Probably because you were fired from the position...but I was fired from a dishwashing gig when I was 17 and don't put that down. Weird. Have you reached out to them for their reasoning?

  14. So you’re referencing a cucumber? This topic has veered off the road, through the ditch, and into the pond. In honor of The Masked Singer and Masked Dancer with reference to this thread, “Shut it down, shut it down, shut it down!”

  15. I feel like I bombed mine but... Traditional questions. Make sure that you know your application and yourself and how you are aligned with their mission and goals (diversity, leadership, etc.) You got this!

  22. I've never listed any "non-PA" jobs in my history. Usually not relevant (to my mind).

  25. I recommend maxing out the 401K/403B. While there is a small management fee, the amount of tax you'll pay on those funds if you place them in an after tax self managed account will have a bigger effect by reducing the principal you have to invest. Also, by reducing your taxable income, you may be eligible to make ROTH contributions that you otherwise might not due to income limitations. Another tool you should consider is if you have a high-deductible health insurance plan, you can contribute to a health savings accounts (HSA) with pre-tax $. Any withdrawals for healthcare expenses are not

  28. Hi everybody! I have my interview tomorrow. I was wondering if anyone can shed some light on if the interview is traditional questions or MMI? No worries if no one can answer this. Thank you in advance:)

  33. Grateful for the opportunity to interview and meet some of you during this process. After much deliberation, I will be declining my offer. Wishing the best to those on the waitlist, one of you should be getting an offer soon

  35. Abhorrent, disgusting and UNSAFE. These are the words that come to mind. Just remember one thing...WHEN something goes wrong....not if but when! They will drop you like a bad habit and you will be on your own. Also remember that for the rest of your career you will get to explain that malpractice lawsuit. Long after you are done with these masochists.

  37. 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!!

  38. I think I only had 2 rotations where I could actually get out my laptop and use it, do proper study during on-site time, was simply too busy everywhere else. I couldn't even log cases during on-site time at most rotations. So I kept hipaa-compliant notes in a little notebook, and did actual case logging at home at the end of the day. Some preceptors didn't even like that, so I had to wing it from memory afterwards (not recommended). I had anki on my phone, so even during a few minutes of downtime, I could flashcard then. But only after checking with my preceptor first so they didn't think I wa

  42. I recommend LinkdIn, PASO (https://pashadowonline.com/), and traditional researching online of clinics and looking under their list of providers to see if there is a PA and then going in person with your resume and letter requesting to shadow. Your best bet are family practice/internal medicine clinics as they usually are private practice and not affiliated with a hospital that would require credentialing or lots of paperwork to shadow. Emailing can only get you so far and requires minimal effort. I once had a student physically come into my clinic with her resume in hand and a separate formal
