  1. Not giving up, just going another direction. Thanks for your words. Best of luck to you.
  2. Rejection email just received. I’m going to post it on my fridge, mirror, etc to encourage me and remind me how bad rejection sucks. I don’t think I’ll be applying to PA school in the future though. I thought it was the reasonable step for a veteran paramedic. Now I’m not thinking it is. All the best to everyone.
  3. I’m in agreement, I think that may be the end of invites. I’m going to let this one simmer and sting for awhile. Perhaps be a little (or very) bitter. Still, I’m very happy for those that received invites and wish you all the best. To those who did not, keep working and you will certainly reach your goals.
  4. All valid points (except money, I just want enough to pay back loans and buy a primary residence on the ocean, East coast, can do that as PA). But anyway, maybe. I’m killing my SMP now. It’ll prep me for either choice. Have some time to ruminate on it now
  5. I’m 33. Im married and sane and well-adjusted(ish). I’m a seasoned paramedic who has worked 60 hour weeks for ten years. PA should be my next logical step. But I also have had the opportunity to work with a fair number of non-trad DO students in their late 30s and 40s lately. One a PA who went back. She’s 43. Our best PA in my ED is going back at 38. I’m blessed that I have made connections at our local DO school (faculty and BOD members, alumni, etc) because of my work . Maybe I should go to medical school. No kids. Wife has stable job. Acing my Masters currently. Maybe . . .
  6. What percentage of the 2k that apply every year are members here? We saw how many folks with interviews from R1? If there are ~100, that means we are certainly not a representative sample.
  7. I think it is safe to say we now have our answer. I don’t know the size or makeup of round three or when to expect it. Luckily, I’m enrolled in a Masters of Medical Science now. So rather than fret over this I’m going to prepare for my cadaver lab.
  8. @PAapplicant94 can you confirm this invite was indeed mailed tonight and not earlier this week and you may have missed it? Everyone else, is there a chance there was one big round of interview invites this year instead of two?
  9. Okay so who is going to contact the school and ask if offers are going out today?
  10. 1. I’m 33 and have seen my share of the critical stuff in the ED. It’s no longer exciting. I’d rather manage the more “bread and butter”. 2. I really respect being part of the team but don’t want to be in total charge of said team. 3. Medical school is 4 + 3 at least. That makes me 40-41. That’s not old but that’s a lot of time hold up in a room studying. That being said, I’m still in talks with wife to take MCAT if (IF!) I don’t get into EVMS but not sure I want to. It’s just an idea not a plan.
  11. Anecdotal but the PAs in my shop work more than the docs and there are overall less of them. It’s prob a 3 or 4:1 for docs to PAs.
