  1. I hope things are no longer this way! Especially since depression and anxiety is such a prevalent thing in medical school/PA school.
  2. I am currently working to provide the Texas Medical Board with all required documents to obtain my Texas License. On the application, the "Professional History" section has questions related to "Actions and Investigations in Training or During Employment" (Question 13-15). The questions seem a little broad and open for interpretation, so I'm unsure what events could be deemed necessary to provide a "Yes" answer. Question 13c asks about additional requirements based on academic performance, etc. In my program, if we scored below a set standard placed on us for our EOR exams, then we were asked to complete supplemental questions that we finished on our own time. I guess my question is whether or not details like this need to be included in Supplemental Form U? It seems like a minor detail, but the fine print to disclose all information scares me into thinking that I need to make note of EVERYTHING. I was also put on academic probation after my first semester from a GPA that was .05 points lower than I needed. This probation was immediately dropped the next semester. But since the application asks specifically about academic probation, I will include Form U with the application. How do I appropriately note this on the form? Do I need to include details about my GPA vs the expected GPA? Do I need to explain to them why I got a 79 in Anatomy? ? The form is merely a blank page- nothing is mapped out. Has anyone had success with submission of Form U? Or any of the other supplemental forms? Thanks for the help! TMB PA App Professional Section.pdf TMB PA App Form U.pdf
  3. I was recently admitted into PA school (YAY), but I am currently still a student finishing 2 prerequisites. Organic chemistry is kicking my butt, and I am starting to get insanely worried that I may receive a "D" in the course. I don't process chemistry very well seeing as how I'm expecting an A in microbiology. Has anyone ever heard of a PA school revoking or rescinding someone's admissions offer due to a poor grade? I'm losing sleep over this one class. Never thought one class would be able to determine the rest of my life. I talked to my professor, and I'm not sure how nice he is about bumping grades.
  4. I also received an admissions offer on Friday! How exciting! My advice for the interview is... Before you get there, make a mental list of all of the things that you really would like them to know about you.. i.e. Your passion, commitment, and things you have done to get you as close to becoming a PA as you can. From there, try to work in those things into your interview the best you can. There were some questions they asked where I don't think I even answered the question fully... I worked around it and figured out how to tell them things I wanted them to know. Just be sincere! Good luck!
