I am deciding between two PA programs - George Washington (big name, great program, but expensive tuition) and a relatively new public school where I would have in-state tuition (~$55K). The public school is affiliated with a major academic hospital and also one of the best public universities. However, it has provisional accreditation and no PANCE pass rates yet.
Money is real, so I am strongly considering the in-state school. It has name recognition, but definitely not the status of GW. I have talked to students who had good experience on clinicals and really enjoyed the program. Perks
