  1. Sounds strong. Apply early and have your documents/transcripts ready. Have a thoughtful personal statement and have friends or a professional review it. We had a handful of paramedics in our class, it seemed like that extra experience helped them. Especially with cards. Good luck!
  2. Hello, I want to know if anyone can evaluate this offer for a position. In coastal CA for a new grad. Base pay is 97k with 10 vacation and 6 sick days. 1000 for CME and DEA fees. No mention of bonus, malpractice, retirement, etc. What is this offer missing, what should be included in the contract that is not already? Call schedule? etc.
  3. How did they measure the technical standards? If your preceptor evaluation binding, or can your advisor overrule this? It may help to understand what mistakes these were and why they were so great for your program to not work with you. I agree with the above as well, it would be quite a battle to explain this to another program. Also - the problem with vision. It's difficult to fully understand what went on, but if this is something that can be fixed, that may be some ammunition for you if you do try another program.
  4. To add some more input: 1. It was mentioned that some core rotations (varying the past few years) are "of-need," i.e. we may have to schedule them on our own? They may shuffle these around, but for the most part they will try to send you to something near you. I had a handful less than five minutes away, and some that were almost an hours drive. Rotation experience was not negatively impacted by this, the preceptors get what you are going through and are mostly understanding. 2. Tuition is listed at $11,600 per trimester; is this to be interpreted as 3 billings of $11,600 per 12 months (fall/spring/summer)? Your math sounds right. If you take the full tuition+COL that would be >130k with interest. 3. What are the state of procedural rooms, OSCE prep rooms etc.? The prep rooms are new, as the building is fairly new.
  5. https://www.nc-sara.org/ Check out this website. California has not signed the reciprocity agreement. Maybe they will in the future.
