  1. For anyone looking to complete a 3-credit Medical Terminology class, I took an online Medical Terminology course at Metropolitan Community College.
  2. I was accepted off the waitlist last week (medium waitlist) but I declined as I am already set to attend another PA program. I was actually surprised by the call. I didn't think they would get down to the medium waitlist. So for those of you still waiting, there is still hope! =)
  3. I will be withdrawing from the June 8th interview. Hope this will help someone else.. good luck!
  4. Something sort of similar happened to me when I was looking for shadowing opportunities. The PA said it was fine for me to come shadow however I had to ask her supervising MD first for permission. When I asked the MD, the MD basically wanted me to work at least 5 hours per day, 4-5 days a week in the office (free labor, without pay) in order to shadow the PA. I thought that was ridiculous as I was already working a full time job and only looking to shadow 4 hours per week. I ended up looking elsewhere to shadow.
  5. Hey! Congratulations!! I am not local to the area. I'm from NorCal and still looking myself! In our facebook group, Marie has listed a few areas to look into: 1. Manhattan Beach 2. Hermosa Beach 3. Redondo Beach 4. Marina Del Rey 5. Playa Del Rey 6. Long Beach 7. Hawthorne 8. Torrance 9. Carson 10. El Segundo 11. Culver City
  6. I was a reapplicant. After all the rejections, I called/emailed to all the schools for feedback on how I could improve. I followed their recommendations. I knew interviews were very important. I went through many, many interview questions. I did mock interviews with friends, family members, and a PA. Online resources that you can try are: PA Coach on YouTube and http://www.thepaplatform.com/
  7. I was a reapplicant. If you haven't already, call the school and ask what areas you can improve on.
  8. ^ agreed but try researching the Stanford University's PA program. I remember, when looking at their stats, the average age of their PA students was older than most of the PA programs I've looked at.
  9. Received an interview invite yesterday. I decided to decline. Hopefully someone else will be able to fill that spot. Good luck!
  10. Accepted!!!!!!! Received an email today accepting me into the program. I'm so happy and excited :)
  11. I received an interview invite earlier this evening for 2/22! =) I submitted the supplemental in December and received the 'Applicant File Complete' email on 12/28.
