    Financing additional prereqs?

    I'll agree with everything said above. Also worth noting is when you work at certain hospitals or health organizations, they have programs set up where they can help pay for their employees further education (usually somewhere around 500 to 1k, but greatly depends and any bit can help).

    Prerequisites at UNE

    I took Genetics at UNE and was able to ask my instructor questions whenever I wanted with prompt responses via course messages on blackboard. I didn't do much outside studying, worked 50 to 60 hours a week, and got an A-. Lots of busy work, but it's an online class, what do you expect? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    UNE pathophysiology

    I've taken other online science courses with them and have been fine with it so far, but thanks! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  6. Hi! Does anyone here have suggestions for succeeding in this course? Focus on what's in the textbook? Only need to know what's on the lecture slides? Thanks! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    Application Cycle 2017-18

    Does anyone know if the waitlist is ranked? I.e. can we ask how far on the waitlist we are? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  8. It's different. If you go to program materials in CASPA and look at Rocky Mountain's home page, there's a link to pay the $30. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    Online Genetics Class?

    I'm finishing the UNE course soon, and I've honestly hated it. There's so much busy work. I thought I was gonna be able to finish it fast because it was self paced and online, but they give you so many things you have to submit with nit-picky grading at times.

    PSA: CNA and MA are listed as HCE and not PCE on CASPA

    This is a new change for CASPA this year. Most programs will still allow CNA and MA as PCE Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  11. I'm taking online genetics at University of New England right now. It's easy to get a good grade on everything as it's all open note, but there's a lot of tedious, busy work that you have to do, so it takes some time to actually commit to! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    Chances- looking for advice

    Ughhhhh, I took that drugs of abuse class last year. So interesting, but so hard to get an amazing grade in. Good luck! If money is no obstacle, I say apply to schools that you're able to do so. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk

    Is this for me? Can I be accepted?

    Also, side question, how much do you think i'll be paying per month with fed loans and 200k in debt? Will I be okay as a PA? Are all your loans federal? If so, I wouldn't worry too much to be honest. There are programs where they adjust your payments based on income. There are also loan relief programs for working in underserved areas. Those can be hard to get into, but it's still an option out there. I don't think you should base your decision to be a PA off of salary/loan payment. I have the same amount of debt as you from undergrad, but in private Sallie Mae loans. I'm making a payment of $600+ per month towards my private loans (during my gap years before applying to PA school). It sucks, but I'm managing. Go out and shadow a PA and see if it's something you really want to do. Admissions can smell that through your application like my puppy can smell me opening the peanut butter jar. Good luck!

  14. Hi all, During my high school and undergraduate years, I faced a lot of adversity dealing with a father who abused my family in all ways possible. Because of this, as the eldest child, I would often go home to care for my siblings and mother and ultimately testified and talked with lawyers for their divorce over the custody of my youngest sister. I'm honestly not sure if this is something I should talk about on some part of my CASPA application or not. I know that if I talked about it, it would show that I had been through adversity and was still able to accomplish all of my academic and extracurricular achievements in undergrad. However, I also don't want talking about this to be seen as an excuse for grades that could have been more "a"mazing/an academic misconduct issue during my first semester freshman year. Additionally, I don't know if talking about this could be seen as scary by adcoms (I don't want them to be like "Ahhh, why is this girl getting so personal?!"). Is this something I don't bring up at all, bring up in my PS, or potentially bring up in the area of the app where I describe my academic misconduct issue from awhile ago? Thanks in advance!

    Need help deciding on HCE choice!!

    I recently moved to Florida with my CNA from Michigan and I was able to transfer my Michigan CNA to be a Florida CNA by filling out paperwork online and doing a background check. I'd imagine the process would be similar for EMT? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
