  1. Wasnt aware of an attrition issues with APAP. Do you know the attrition rate?
  2. Currently a PA in the application process! Feel free to message me with any questions. Hoping to get an acceptance this cycle.
  3. I was speaking to a LECOM student a year or so ago. I believe that they told me APAP students usually get lower priority on LECOM rotation sites so a lot of them set their own up.
  4. I was today years old when I learned that AAs have an apostrophe.
  5. If you make it through the weed out processes they put in place, you still have a long way to go correct. That’s why it would be better to go DO. Much higher match rate as well as more opportunity
  6. Carib big 4 SABA Ross AUC St. George None of which are as competitive as any US DO school like you said.
  7. Just read Joseph Costa's page and talk about impressive.
  8. Excellent work. I was looking forward to this can’t believe it came out so soon. Thank you!
  9. Yeah, I used an anki deck I found on Reddit (premed sub) and found it useful the further I got into my studies. if there is anything I think that is required to do well on the MCAT it’s the AAMC bundle. They have the truest practice tests and their questions are sufficient. I’m in the camp that questions are king the caveat is you have to have the content to back it up.
  10. I used the ExamKrackers book set. Highly recommend it. I supplemented the books with Khan Academy videos especially for chem physics. I also used Anki, which is a flashcard program you can get on your computer. I would recommend setting aside 1-1.5 months for content review. Then another 1.5 of time for practice questions and practice exams. For practice questions I would recommend Uworld. They have a $180 package that has really good questions. You need to buy all AAMC materials, Qpacks, SBs, and practice tests. Princeton review has practice tests you can get for free
  11. DO not go to OUM. LECOM is a much better alternative.
  12. Fair enough. Is anesthesiology basics taught in medical school and is a rotation required of students? is 12-18 months adequate without any prior experience to be on par with a CRNA or AA? I suppose you could argue there would be a lack of desire because if you liked anesthesiology you would have pursued a MD/DO, CRNA or AA already.
  13. I can only speak for myself but I know my education had zero anesthesiology management in it. I would find it difficult for a new grad PA to enter a 12 month residency with no prior experience to anesthesiology. That being said I have seen PA students rotate in anesthesiology. As well anecdotes of former PAs who worked in anesthesiology. Maybe a more veteran PA will be able to help answer this. I just find it to be a large obstacle for PAs given our education.
