  1. When working in the Emergency Dept. I worked directly with PAs within the "fast track" portion of the ER. Other than that, you are correct in that I lack PA shadowing - how many hours would you recommend?
  2. Thank you for your feedback! I was concerned my experience was too research based and that I need more hands on experience, but if I focus on schools that accept scribing I suppose I could be ok. Also, you are right that if I seek more hands on experience that would ultimately lead to a pay cut (which would lead to more student loans). I suppose I will focus on acing A&P I/II and the GRE, and perhaps add some additional PA shadowing hours over the next year. If you have any other suggestions, please let me know.
