  1. Congratulations to everyone who has been accepted! To those on the wait list, don't give up hope! I'm in the class of 2020 and people were still being accepted in March. I wanted to plug the Facebook groups for each respective campus. Being on the group last year was super helpful for getting in touch with my future classmates and most importantly, finding roommates. I'm a Boone student and we have a unique situation up here: Unit 1 in completed in Winston-Salem and you'll be staying on the Wake undergrad campus during this time, but as soon as that month is over you have a weekend to come back to Boone and get ready for Unit 2. The apartments here in Boone mostly rent from August-August to accommodate Appalachian State University undergrads, which makes it challenging to find a place to move into by July 1. Luckily, there are a bunch of apartments that current PA students live in that we'd love to pass down to the incoming class! This is what I did - we moved in to our apartment just before Unit 1 started, went down the mountain and lived on the Wake campus for a month (no charge), then when it was time to come back we were already settled in here. It's a little contrived, but much easier than subleasing an apartment for the month of July and then having to move again in August (meaning you've effectively moved 3 times). So, here are the links to the Facebook groups. Join! Ask questions! We're all stoked for you and want to help out in any way we can.

  2. Congrats to everyone who has received an interview and/or acceptance! I'm a first year student and can honestly say without hesitation that I'm grateful to be a Wake Forest PA student every single day. Shoot me a PM if you have specific questions! For those still waiting, don't get discouraged. Lots of my classmates didn't hear of their acceptance until late Winter/early Spring.
  3. Friendly reminder that there are two information sessions coming up! August 11th in Boone and August 18th in Winston-Salem. These are great opportunities to learn about the program and see first-hand how the IBL process works! Good luck everyone!
  4. Thank you for this. Breath of fresh air! I'm both excited and humbled by the responsibility inherent in being a PA and taking care of patients. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Huge fan of pulmcast - I've listened to them all and look forward to more! Super inspiring for me, as a soon-to-be PA student, to see the quality content y'all produce. Please keep it up! You represent the PA profession well Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thank you so much for taking the time to answer. I can't wait to start! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Already a member! So most students don't maintain housing in Boone during the clinical year? Thanks for the info! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Do any current or former Boone students have advice on housing in the area? It seems like a lot of the rental agencies cater to ASU students and start leases in August. Thanks in advance! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I heard from multiple people that developing a relationship with Ms. Irving was instrumental in their getting accepted. Even though I ultimately declined attending the interview, I would echo that sentiment. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. what does pay on production after a year mean? genuinely curious Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I got experience as a CNA working in inpatient psych, which I did not particularly enjoy, and then took a job in an ICU. A years worth of experience in long term care would be more than enough to land you a job in a different environment. While a big part of my current position is still helping with ADLs, I'm witness to the in's and out's of critical care medicine on a daily basis. It's been an amazing learning experience and I love going to work Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Lots of jobs posted on wfubmc.edu Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I had a different experience. I lacked the lab for organic and was told verbatim "we never let the lack of a lab stand in our way". Was offered an interview but ultimately declined attending Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
