  1. I'm a current PA student at UC Davis. Don't come here for the program. If you come it's because there's good weather and class only 4 days a week. It's good for a family life but that's it. Good PAs come out of UCD but that's not because the program helped. It's because they used to be a good school and they have a massive publicity campaign that attracts good students that make good PAs regardless of the program. When 21 people out of 83 fail a test so the program decides to include the take-home pre-test in the score so it looks like only 5 people failed, there's serious problem with the teaching. I'm pretty sure that's not even legal. Don't come because you expect a cutting edge program that lets you use lots of technology because they don't. The class size is too big for the resources. The lectures are disjointed and disorganized and nothing is ever the programs fault. If you complain it's brushed off as "this is grad school and it's just hard," but that's a serious cop out in this case. Grad school is hard. Been there, done that. This doesn't apply to me or numerous other students here now. This program started failing when it left the school of medicine for the school of nursing. We're the guinea pigs and it's only likely to get worse. I should have gone to Northeastern. My friends should have gone to Yale, or Rutgers, or numerous other programs that were their options. We all bought into the lies the publicity told. The old program that deserved the reputation is dead.
  2. I'm a current PA student. This is a little unrelated but you need to be very careful about your choice to come here. They are resting on their laurels and have a massive publicity campaign that attracts good students. This is why they claim they have a good program but they don't. When 21 out of 83 students fail a test and the program decides to combine the take-home pre-test score with it so it looks like only 5 people failed then there is a massive problem with the instruction. The class size is too big for the resources. The lectures are disjointed and disorganized. Do not come here for the program. If you come it has to be for the location or that you only have class 4 days a week. We have students that got in to Yale, and Rutgers, and Northeastern and other amazing schools that came here because they were promised things that the program used to have but now does not. I regret the choice to come here.
  3. I'm a current PA student at UC Davis. I have a word of caution. UCD doesn't have the program they claim. While it's true the good PAs come out of it, that is a result of a remarkable publicity campaign that attracts good students. The program currently is disjointed, disorganized, and anything that goes wrong is because "this is grad school and it's just hard." That's a serious cop out. When 21 people out of 83 fail a test so the program decides to include the take-home pre-test in the score so it looks like only 5 people failed, there's a big problem with the teaching. I have a number of concrete examples to support my current statements. If you come here, come because you only have class 4 days a week, the weather is good, or you just really like california. Don't come because you expect a cutting edge program that lets you use lots of technology because they don't.
