  2. Yes! I was offered a spot on February 16th! They offer an open spot to the next person on the waitlist as soon as it become available! They don’t wait until August.

  3. Open a roller skating rink - assuming people can come and COVID is not as big of a threat. Teach kids to skate. Skate everyday myself to my 80s music and bring at least one dog to work. Learn a few more languages. Go to school for fun stuff. Yeah, there are other things I could do if salary wasn’t an issue.

  4. I just came across a list of goals I wrote about 30 years ago. At the time, I wasn't a PA and I wrote that I wanted to retire at 57! I didn't do that! Instead I became a PA at age 60 and I am still working at nearly 75. I believe that I'm financially independent enough now to stop working. I have a couple of pensions, I am required to draw down my retirement savings, and there are more 1099-Rs than W2s when I do my taxes. Now I just do 1 or 2 days weekly as a clinician and teach for a PA program half-time. The variety and stimulation is important to me. I am also learning to priorit

  5. I'd have to oe I'd probably die. Not from boredom but from my wife murdering me. Honestly, my job is pretty niche and a fantastic fit for me so I'd probably keep at it.

  6. I was thinking the same thing! It seems like they release on a Friday. Last year March 6th was a Friday, and this is the last Friday before March 1st!

  8. @apples123 Hey, so I interviewed on 1/6 and I have not heard back. Whenever and whatever I hear back (the good, the bad, and the ugly), I'll post in the forum. If we don't hear back by 3/15 I might go into cardiac arrest lol no but really hopefully that is the latest! Good luck to everyone!!

  11. agree. coming from an ems background really helps with EM in general and trauma in particular. Always be thinking about what is next, even before the patient arrives. bad mva? gather the troops, check the availability of lifeflight, lay out equipment you may need, including backups: 7.5 ET tube, king LT airway, crich kit. check. extra nurse from the floor. check. EZ IO and set up for EJs, check.

  12. I've taken ATLS both as a medic and as a PA. The big difference is that as a medic I only got a certificate as an "auditor". As a PA, I got certification as a "physician extender" - viewed by my hospitals as the same as the cert for docs. It's not a bad course, but the underlying concepts really seem like making sure ED providers prioritize rapid stabilization and transfer to definitive care. In other words, think like medics have for years.

  14. The transition to zoom interviews has made it all the more important to practice your interview skills. The schools know what you look like on paper already so don’t count on that getting you in. They want to see who you are as a person. If you can’t be conversational, intelligently fluid with your words and answers, or come off as too shy and unprepared; it will greatly decrease your chances. Be able to come out the shell and be real with your interviewers. Be fluent in talking about yourself and your prior adventures/aspirations. Have a good story to tell. Show it in your body language.

  15. Out of the 54 of us I think less than 10 are applicants from this cycle, the rest of us are from the class of 2022! Most applicants do hear back mid-March even those that are accepted so don't lose hope if you weren't accepted yet. I know its a stressful time for those waiting to hear back but you put in the work and did all you could do at this point!

  16. Do you by chance know how many of those 53 members are accepted students? It seems like 3 are moderators from the class of 2022 but was wondering bc of the other 50 are accepted students than half the class is already filled which should give the remaining people who are waiting to hear back a realistic idea of how many seats are open. I know they say "90% of students" hear back in mid-march but im assuming almost all are rejections and waitlists.

  23. Hi @Gemini - yes I submitted my CASPer score well before I submitted my application and mine shows complete. If you it's just been a few days, I would wait a bit, if it's been weeks, perhaps drop a message through PURL?

  24. Absolutely not. Not worth the risk and stress. Volunteer at an animal shelter is my goal! Hiking building a stone cottage sounds lovely. Enjoy.

  26. Not sure, but there are currently 41 people in the facebook group. I know not everyone uses social media, but it might mean there’s a few spots left, good luck!
