  1. Yah I heard that we won't hear anything from them until after the January deadline :( Someone else started another forum with more replies!
  2. Hey sorry for replying super late! But yes I found someone in the IE but not in the OC or LA...
  3. Yay congrats! When did you submit your secondary?
  4. I surely hope not because I will be submitting mine within the next couple of days LOL Keep hope alive!
  5. Hello! I am trying to sign up for the information session on September 16th AT 10AM but PA program is not listed to select on dropdown menu. What the heck!? Anyone know how I can complete this form?
  6. Hello there! I submitted in June but didn't hear back for 3 weeks then called, someone said I should be getting a confirmation email soon. Didn't hear anything after another week so I called again and I guess there's some system error. So I had to contact IT and they helped me set up the portal to pay for the secondary. I think I submitted the payment on July 5th. Heads up to anyone else, if you don't hear back after 2 weeks max of submitting your CASPA, follow up, it may be something on their end. Good luck to everyone :)
  7. Hello everyone! Based on the website, https://www.ccny.cuny.edu/csom/physician-assistant-program it says that the application will open tomorrow July 1st! I'm planning to submit ASAP...Good luck to everyone :)
  8. Hello!! How long did it take for them to send you an email? I just submitted over the weekend :)
  9. Hi Brianna! **Disclaimer: These are my personal opinions and I am by no means a "Professional Personal Statement Reader"** haha I thought I'd share some improvements you may benefit from! Anyway, I do like your statement and where it goes! You have some great information in here and I think you are on the right track. Below are some pros, cons and possibly some things to think about adjusting. Pros: 1. Great information about childhood and how you have grown to learn about other health professions 2. Pivotal point on how you were introduced into the medical field (after this medical trip did you become a EMT?) If so then that could be mentioned to show your connection to this trip and how you have continued to work in the medical field) 3. I like how you talk about not successfully gaining an admission into a program and what you have been doing in the mean time to better prepare yourself. It's admirable and shows that you are committed and will persevere under any circumstances. Cons: 1. A bit long 2. I'm not getting much information from the first 2 paragraphs (possibly condense these by getting straight to the point or take them out) 3. Sentences could be more concise 4. You may not want to start 2 consecutive paragraphs with the same phrase (As a child, As an undergraduate) Something else to think about: 1. What about the PA profession attracts you to it? (this can be one sentence) 2. Why are you ready NOW to become a PA? 3. Mention how being an EMT has further prepared you for the next step of being a PA (i think this is what you are trying to say in the first 2 paragraphs but it may only need a couple of sentences to say this) Topic/Paragraph suggestions: 1. Growing up I had a strong desire to care for pets and thought I wanted to become a vet.... 2. During my undergraduate career I began....(i think taking out the stuff about math tutoring would benefit the flow of this paragraph) I'm not sure of the relevance of the comparison of doctor vs PA (you could either elaborate more on what you mean or take that out completely) 3. I knew the PA profession was for me when I shadowed a PA in the ER.... (here you can talk less about the PAs and more about you and what you learned during this time. Maybe say something like: Through both of these experiences I learned a great deal about the profession (list some stuff) and it's a great fit for me. 4. Instead of "Furthermore" I would be more upfront I guess lol "I am confident in my academic ability, physical stamina.....blah blah" Side note: do you speak Spanish? You have done some work in spanish-speaking areas so highlighting that ability would be a plus! Something like: "Through these mission trips I have strengthened my medical Spanish speaking skills, which will allow me to better communicate with a variety of patients in the future" Something like that... ___________________________ I hope my edits aren't too confusing hehe And hopefully this was somewhat helpful! Anyway, good Luck with everything!! I'm sure you will be just fine this time :) ~Rellie
