  1. Thank you EMEDPA & MT2PA for your replies. I sent this letter, because regardless of the other position, the biggest issue is that I would be a solo provider as a new grad and no formal training prior. I had a lawyer review my contract and if they push for me to work the 60 days, then I may decline based on my current lack of license and therefore inability to perform the tasks needed for the job. Dear Hiring Manager, I’d like to thank you for the opportunity to work with ___ Urgent Care and appreciate the time you took in selecting me for the position. I enjoyed getting to
  2. Hi all, I got myself into a bit of a situation as a new grad and would like some professional advice on how to handle it... Long story short, I had been job searching in MI for a couple of months, but was only finding and being offered Urgent Care positions with no paid training period, and would be the solo provider on site. I ended up accepting one with decent benefits and pay at $50 per hour. I started "training" (seeing patients for free) with one of their existing providers until my license comes through to get the hang of the office. Needless to say, although I had already
  3. Great idea, followed your advice and applied to a few I didn't see listed elsewhere. Thanks
  4. Thank you all for the advice, seems my hesitancy was justified. I will likely pass on this "opportunity." I received another UC offer today that was better, but still not ideal as the SP will not be on site, nor will any other providers. $50 per hour to start (review in 6 months) with full benefits after 90 days. Malpractice w/tail coverage, PTO etc. I've been using Indeed.com mainly as well as other job search sites as I am new to the MI area and have few connections. Anyone have advice for job seeking as a new grad? Would it be unprofessional to stop by clinics personally? T
  5. Hi all, I am a new grad PA-C in MI and just received an Urgent Care offer at the first clinic I interviewed with. Seems to not be great, but not bad and I’d appreciate any feedback you have for me moving forward! First off, I interviewed yesterday and received the offer today. $45 per hour was offered and I countered with $50. We settled on $47. Pay: $47 per hour, shifts are usually 3 12’s, holiday and OT pay is time and a half. Possibility of bonuses dependent on revenue were mentioned. Ability to pick up shifts at sister locations. (OT wouldn’t kick in if time was split between l
  6. Received a rejection email today. All's well though, it was a great experience! I'll be starting at Univ. of Chaleston next month! Congrats to the UF class of 2018!!!
  7. Was thinking the same thing FuturePA101! It seems that if history repeats itself, calls seem to be made the following Monday after the last interview session (info gathered from reading previous years threads). So today would be the day! I haven't heard a peep, nor have any of the contacts I made at my interview session. Maybe it will be next week instead? I'm anxious to hear as well since the other program I was accepted to starts next month!
  8. Had my interview with the program yesterday and it was a great experience! Like others have said on the forum, it was all very relaxed and comfortable. I'll be keeping you all updated if I hear back regarding any kind of decision prior to December! :) Best of luck to everyone else waiting on interviews/acceptances!
  9. Interview confirmed today for Oct 19th and 20th! Anyone else scheduled for then as well? Also, I was informed that I was able to bring a guest to the orientation day on the 19th, has anyone done this/do you recommend it?
  10. Received a message regarding an interview invite today! I called Karen back, but it seems after reading these posts that they are in the midst of an interview session so I may not hear back about which date right away. My second level review email was sent on Friday. I have a seat reserved at another program starting in January, but UF has been my #1 choice since the beginning of this journey. Btw, my transcripts are far from perfect so there is hope! :)
  11. No way, they were only recommended at the time of my application. I wonder if that will effect our cycle?
  12. Lots of hope to those that may have underwhelming undergrad GPA's!!! I truly did not expect an interview much less an acceptance on my first attempt, but I worked extremely hard to improve my stats and spent every waking hour getting volunteer/PCE hours. If I can get into PA school, I have no doubt that you can too!!!! :) Undergrad ed school: University of Central Florida, B.S. Psychology cGPA: 3.16 (3.87 in 30 credit hours post-bac, due to terrible undergrad GPA 2.99) sGPA: 3.47 BCP 3.67 CASPA verification: July 7th Age at time of application: 27 1st GRE: V 156 Q 150 W 4.0 (
  13. Hello and congratulations to UCPAP's Class of 2018!! Wanted to start a posting so we can introduce ourselves. Feel free to post on here so we can all get better acquainted before class starts! :) Ps: Anyone have recommendations on where to live in Charleston, WV? I'll be moving from FL and may not be able to go apartment shopping in person prior to matriculation. I've heard of EaglesView, but are there any other safe places to live in close proximity to campus? Or is anyone interested in having a roommate?
  14. I was emailed this morning around 9:47 that I was on the ranked wait list. At 10:01 I got a phone call from Pam saying that I have seat if I would like it-which was a very enthusiastic YES!!! I was #1 on the wait list so they are already moving along quickly! There is HOPE! So excited to become a PA at UCPAP! :)
  15. No call for this girl... but it's ok there's still the wait list and next year! :) I'm just happy to have been selected to interview with such awesome candidates.
