  1. Maybe consider doing a residency for a year out of graduation and then move to Okinawa.
  2. Hey everyone. I'm a current student (PAS-1 so I'm just finishing my first semester). I'd be happy to answer any questions either on the public forum or via PM. I couldn't be happier in my choice of coming to this program.
  3. Mine has not been checked. I was one of the people who forgot to put my name and SS number on top of all of my documents so let that be a warning for everyone next year!! I have years of relative experience working with underserved communities so I feel like I would have made it through the initial screening if I hadn't messed this part up.
  4. I'm 40 and sitting in class in my first semester of PA school. My undergrad is in Environmental Studies. I did wildland fire fighting, horse logging, trail crews, trained and showed horses professionally. Then I got into the medical field as a vet tech and then a phlebotomist. I learned about EMS and jumped into that with 2 feet. I spent 10 years in EMS and Community Paramedicine and applied to school last year. Yeah, I'm the oldest in the class but I am loving every minute of it. Sometimes I wish I had decided this is what I wanted to do when I was 18 but I never would have had the amazing life experiences that I am bringing with me. My journey will make me a better PA.
  5. Months later, after I several interviews and acceptances I started PA school. I let one of my classmates read my essay and found a huge grammatical error. I had so many people read it and it was missed. But it didn't seem to make a difference in my future.
  6. If she was doing such a great job for the past 8 years why did they shit can her?
  7. I am interested in the list of schools that do not have time limit for prerequisites. My email is osuee1@gmail.com.Thanks

  8. I got my bachelors in 2002 and I am a first year now (20K+ hours of PCE). I went through all of the schools in my area and applied to 6 of them that did not have time limits on classes. There are a good number of schools out there that will take your old classes. It's a tedious process. I'd be happy to share the ones in the SE that I found if you are interested in that area.
  9. I don't know if it really matters but I listed all of mine. I'd be out of school for a while so I didn't have any honors or shit like that to post so I posted what I could.
  10. Some private schools may have a policy of accepting local students. Just read websites and check it out.
  11. I sent it to my program manager and she filled it out for me.
  12. I'm a paramedic with a Environmental Science degree and 10 years of EMS experience. I'm also 40 and starting school. Take the time you need and just make sure you have your prereqs covered. Get a degree you might be happy using in the future if you do change your mind in the next few years and don't want to go into medicine.
  13. You can't tell someone going through chemotherapy to just go on to school because they can power through and they "got this!" Sometimes your health needs to come first and I definitely think it needs to be between you and your provider. Please listen to them and take care of yourself.
  14. I had to fill out the 2018/2019 FAFSA as well as the 19/20 one.
  15. It says right above what the dates they consider the terms. It's like August through June or something like that. I just plugged their dates that were closest to my school's calendar.
