  1. Does anyone have newer recommendations on shoes for being on your feet all day?
  2. The class of 2018 had 88 students, 87 took the PANCE and the class of 2019 dropped to 80 students.
  3. Yes you can, but you will have to pay the non-refundable deposits to both schools and will ultimately lose one deposit when you give up your seat.
  4. I read about the growing need for medical providers as well as the projected job growth for PA's at 37% from 2016 - 2026 (per Dept. of Labor). Out of curiosity, if markets are becoming over saturated why are new PA programs popping up everywhere?
  5. You are correct in the fact that having something bad happen or losing control doesn't define a person by any means, but it speaks volumes to their mental, emotional and/or psychological state at the time. I believe these older and experienced guys/ladies have been around the block a few times and know the pressures and demands that come with PA school to say the least. The fact that he/she gotten off of their meds for depression and anxiety and quit seeing their therapist, had too much to drink and was threatening to hurt themselves is a huge red flag and speaks to the lack of sound judgment and decision making, and please know that I am in no way judging or criticizing by saying this. I am merely pointing out that if these things are happening weeks before school starts imagine what will happen under the tremendous pressures of a rigorous PA program. I wish BB22981 the very best personally and professionally, but I do believe they need to be 100% stable for everyone's sake before starting a program.
  6. I consider UAB out of state friendly, it usually takes half or more of its class size in out of state students.
  7. You can apply to schools at different times, but keep in mind that many schools have rolling admissions while others don't. Also, application deadlines for each school are different so you have to pay attention to each one. The earlier you apply to rolling admission schools, the better. If you can afford it, you may want to apply to more than 3 schools.
  8. In February or early spring once you have applied and received your letter of acceptance you can then do the paperwork for Academic Common Market. It was a very simple and easy process.
  9. Congrats to all of you....UAB is awesome!! The 1st year class president normally starts a fb page one the class is settled.
  10. No, they look at everything after the August deadline. Good luck to you!
  11. The personal statement is as important as the LORs!
  12. Just my opinion, but if I were you, I would email him after all of the dust from this cycle and the holidays are behind him. I'm sure they are all still trying to catch their breath.
  13. Now that makes for a very Merry Christmas!!! Congrats to you!
  14. Students who were accepted have until December 18th to have their signed acceptance and deposit in the mail.
  15. Just checked my mail and received mine! I've never been so excited to pay for something before!! :)
