  1. Thank you all for your service to our country. Air Force PJ since 2011, in the CASPA application process currently. Looking to stay on as a reservist through the PA school adventure. At some point I may decide to commission into the guard or reserve as a PA to finish out my 20. I wish you all the best.
  2. For those of you who have filed for VA compensation then subsequently applied for vocational rehab (chapter 31 benefits), how long did the process take? I am still a reserve PJ and have taken my bumps and bruises over the last six years. I am not broken like some of my brothers but I do believe I might rate at 10% or higher which would leave me eligible for Chapter 31. I am deploying soon and will return this fall, matriculating in January to PA school. Knowing the speed the VA moves would it be possible to work with a Veteran Service Organization (VSO) while overseas to get the ball rolling, knocking out my claim and filing before January or is it a complete pipedream?

  4. Awesome, I'll have to do the legwork before it sneaks up on me. I'll try to remember to update things when I get it resolved.
  5. I am applying this cycle to multilple PA programs. I've looked at old threads and know this has been an issue for others in the past. I hold my NREMT-P cert which I cannot let go due to my DOD obligations. If I am accepted, my recert window will fall sometime during the clinical year. Has anyone's found success with their program or medical director to have the didactic year satisfy requirements?
