  1. Hey there, I recently licensed in MA so I have some insight into what things you can do to complete. I do see this is two weeks old though so if you don't need any guidance then no problem! Otherwise if you still need help just let me know.
  2. Hey Sam, mind telling me which group this is with? Currently with an MA license looking for an opportunity like this.
  3. Hi,

    I hope you are doing well. I saw your post on high GPA/ low PCE and I have very similar Stats (around 600 PCE as a CNA). I was wondering if you could list the schools that you applied to and received interview invites to (15 is a lot!). Thank you 🙂

      Hi there,

      It's been quite a long time so I don't remember them all, but from the ones that I remember, I believe these are some that I had interview offers from:

      • Cornell
      • South University - Savannah, GA
      • Nova Southeastern University - Orlando
      • Midwestern University - IL
      • UTMB - Galvaston
      • Rutgers
      • Rosalind Franklin
      • Hofstra
      • University of North Texas


      Hope this helps!

  4. I agree with what was previously said that Medical Practitioner, when abbreviated, sounds extremely close to NP, especially if you're saying it quickly or the person is hard of hearing. Perhaps something like Medical Extender? I've heard the term extender come up when referring to PA's and NP's and I think it does address what our scope has become lately, extending access to medicine. I know it comes close to ME in terms of medical examiner and mechanical engineer, but I don't think people use that abbreviation frequently.
  5. I wouldn't worry about it too much for now. I applied last year super early on (maybe the first week in May after it opened) and didn't hear anything between the confirmation e-mail and reception of the secondary via snail mail. Not only that, but people that submitted after me had received interview invites before I even received a secondary.
  6. See thread: http://www.physicianassistantforum.com/index.php?/topic/41612-for-those-of-you-applying-with-high-gpalow-hce/ Be advised, it is very likely UF will reject you if you don't clear the 1000 hours direct PCE; I forget whether scribing counts, but they did not even consider me for an interivew because I did not have that many hours.
  7. I don't think so. I declined my offer this past week so someone should hear about that.
  8. From what I've seen in this thread, you do indeed get a notification you've been rejected, but you only get it through snail mail (no phone call/e-mail). For reference, my call came a little bit before 2 weeks after my interview. I'm not sure if the group before me had to wait 2 weeks + a month from their interview though since they interviewed a month before mine. Hope this helps!
  9. If you're accepted, the initial notification comes via phone call. The official notification comes via snail mail. There was no notification by email.
  10. I got a call approximately 6 days after my interview around 11 in the morning. EDIT: I think for the people that were in the interview session before me it took my 6 days + however long it was between our interview sessions, as they reviewed both interview dates at the same time.
  11. This may reflect ignorance on my part; however, I really haven't found much information on the subject, perhaps because it doesn't actually matter? Nevertheless, I'm curious as to if, like in undergraduate and to some extent graduate education, the reputation of the school has any further impact on a PA's career beyond the unique resources of that program (ex. job prospects, perceived competency, etc.)? Either way, I've only asked 2 PA's so far, so I have quite a small sample size and am interested in getting more opinions.
  12. I just received an e-mail today as well for an invitation to interview. I had 3 options to choose from: October 4th, October 18th, and October 20th. There was only one slot for the 4th so I assume it was there because someone cancelled their interview. Did not send my application until mid-August since I was finishing up the first of two outstanding pre-requisites.
  13. Yes, I was admitted with two outstanding courses. I submitted mine on around the 23rd/24th of Aug!
