  1. I have a question about the application process, specifically the letters of recommendation. I have been taking prerequisite classes here and there, but have not finished a undergraduate program within the past few years. I am also not beginning my program until the end of May (after the due date). Is there any alternatives for the academic letter of recommendation? I don't believe I have anyone to speak to my strengths or who knows me well enough to write a solid letter of recommendation due to being out of full time college for a few years. Thanks in advance for everyones help!
  2. I am so happy to say I was accepted a few days ago. Cannot wait to start! Good luck everyone, stay positive!
  3. Just was offered an interview for December 9th, I’m so excited! See some of you there!
  4. Thanks for your response. No need to explain yourself, I ask myself the same thing everyday! Not that I need to justify myself, but the thing about emotional/verbal abuse is that YOU feel like the failure or that you aren't good enough. You can't tell it is them, everything is made to be your fault and you often feel that way for a while. Until you gain some perspective, you see the light, you figure it out, and get out of there. I appreciate your input, I haven't told my friends or family what my essay is going to be about, so this forum is my first round of feedback even though
  5. Hope someone can help me get my personal statement off of the ground! I have a gripping but very personal topic that I want to use for my personal statement when I apply this spring. Emotional/Verbal Abuse: I was emotionally/verbally abused by my boyfriend. We dated for 3 years, lived together, and even adopted a dog together. He drew me in until I was attached, I was then verbally/emotionally abused for the next two years. I was constantly told I was not good enough, pretty enough, smart enough, or driven enough. One of the hardest things to hear from him was that I would never beco
  6. Hi Everyone! I had a few questions about required courses, what counts and what doesn't count. I got my bachelors degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders and have several courses that speak to that major. I took statistics and psychology, but its Statistics in Speech and Language Pathology and Educational Psychology. I was wondering if those will count when I apply to PA school in the future, or if I need to retake the courses. I want to be a competitive candidate but don't want to retake courses if it is not necessary. Thank you all! Emma
  7. Hi everyone! My name is Emma and I'm a pre-PA student looking for a PA to shadow. I'm looking in either the Burlington, VT (Northwestern Vermont) area or the Albany, NY area. I am open to any discipline/specialty, just looking for some background and experience into the everyday life of a Physician's Assistant! Please let me know if you know of anyone willing to mentor or you yourself would like to mentor! Thank you everyone for your help! -Emma
