  1. I just took it in June 2020. It wasn't hard but it wasn't easy, only because the questions are so weird. As long as you know all about the HTN guidelines, sleep apnea requirements, vision, and hearing you will be fine. Just make sure to study. For the record, I absolutely HATE doing DOT exams. I wish I never had to another one. But, my job requires it so I don't have a choice.
  2. I currently work in urgent care, and my first job out of PA school was in urgent care. It was terrifying. It was NOT easy as I was the ONLY provider in my clinic when I worked, so everything was solely my responsibility. Urgent care is very fast and busy. And since COVID started, the patients are more impatient and not always very nice. Keep your chin up. One thing that helped me save time and become faster was having a 'working' word document with standard treatment plans and discharge instructions already written. I just copy and paste them into my EMR and it saves so much time whe
  3. I agree....the Pance Prep Pearls 2nd Edition is great! Be careful when ordering because there are pirated copies out there. I bought one from Amazon that smelled like gasoline and rubber tires and had a typo on the front cover. It was gross. I sent it back for a credit and re-order the "non-pirated" version. Also, one of my classmates took his copy to OfficeMax and got it spiral bound so it's easier to manage. I think I'm going to do the same thing. Also, the Babcock/O'Connell book is great! (it's lime green and white with blue writing)
  4. Hi there, Is this set still available? If yes, would you accept $250? Thank you!
  5. All I can say is that everyone should be careful when making assumptions. It will come back to bite you. I'm sure we've all learned that at some point in time. I know I have been bitten on more than one occasion. Don't generalize why people chose PA vs MD/DO. There are several reasons to choose either path. I'm choosing PA because I am an older student and do not want to spend 4 years in medical school plus another 3-5 in residency (depending on specialty). I do not have that kind of time. Nor do I want to come out with $200K-$300K in debt. With PA school, I'll be in school for 28
  6. Check and see what LMS system (Blackboard, Canvas, etc) your school uses. Then go to the website and find the location where they talk about the 'tech' stuff and make sure whatever you purchase meets those requirements. I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and it does NOT play FLASH files so when I tried to use it while finishing up my pre-reqs, I wasn't able to watch some videos. That really sucked!!!! Had I looked at the school requirements, or gone to the Blackboard site to look at the specs, I would have known it wasn't compatible. I was able to get most of what I needed but when somethin
  7. I start my program on August 29, which happens to be my 48th birthday. Age is not a factor. If you want it....go for it!!!!
  8. Hi LexAndria22, I wish I had more information to share with you. I don't know anything. I would like to know when we're able to start registering for classes. I know we have an orientation on August 5 but that's all I know. Have you joined our group's Facebook page yet? It's a closed group so you have to request to be part of it. It's Tri-C/CSU Physician Assistant Program Class of 2018 if you're searching for it. There may even be a link in one of these threads in this forum. People post the most recent updates on the Facebook page so you should join it. Have a great weekend
  9. Sorry ADP!!!! Keep trying! I didn't get in on my first try.
  10. I was just accepted to PA school and start this August. Yay!!!!! In my life before the PA journey began, LOL, I have had several credit cards. Most I don't use any longer but they remain open (without balances) because it looks better on your credit report for some reason. I still don't understand why. Now I currently have 3 cards that I use. I will say that it is a balancing act and it is not for everyone. The 3 cards I have are: Chase Sapphire, Chase Freedom, Chase Amazon. Each one has its own benefits. Chase Sapphire - I use it ONLY for dining and travel (this includes parki
  11. Someone I know got a rejection email from Tri-C last week. Lucky for her she also got offered a seat at Toledo. Apparently Tri-C is sending rejection emails out.
  12. Hi ADP, I don't know anything about the alternate list. Sorry. But I'm guessing it is legitimate. I know there are some people that are finishing up the last of the prerequisites and have to submit grades at the end of the semester. If those people don't get the grade(s) they need, then potential spaces could open in May and that list could be what they use to determine who gets those seats....if there are any available. Sorry....I wish I had more to tell you.
  13. That's great to hear ADP! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for everyone that is still waiting!!!!
  14. I just received an email from Nicole Mitchell (via the Typhon Group). It is a legitimate email. Apparently Typhon is a company that does a lot of tracking (patient logs, rotation schedules, curriculum mapping, etc) for different healthcare programs (anesthesia, nursing, PA, etc). If you Google them, you will find their website. I wonder if this is the first of many additional fees that we will be finding out about during this process????!!!! I didn't realize that we have to pay $80 for this. FYI...Nicole works in the PA Program at Tri-C. We all met her the day we interviewed. Sh
