  1. I submitted June 15th and it was under review in about 2-3 days.
  2. Received an interview for October 19th! Does having a later interview matter in chances of acceptance? Is it possible the class will be full by the time my interview date rolls around?
  3. I got the email as well and I followed the steps to set up the eRaider account but I don't think it ever gave me the option to complete the process so I couldn't sign in even though I created a password. I emailed itsolutions and they said they put in a work order and will be looking into fixing it. They said they accidentally signed me up for TTU not TTUHSC. Idk what to think now since the consensus here is that the emails were a mistake. I guess we just wait!
  4. I just got an email saying “Thank you for your application to the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Physician Assistant program.” And “You have indicated that you will take and finish the following prerequisites by May 2020...” they said to send in summer course grades ASAP and that interviews will be extended on a rolling basis. Did anyone else get this? Is this a good sign?
  5. Which parts specifically do you think are bland? Should I emphasize my patient care experience more?
  6. Is called a “side assistant”. I am in school and I do not have time for a regularly scheduled job at the moment. This is nice because I can put myself on the schedule whenever, it’s flexible. I would love for this to count as PCE. I know it’s not going to be my only PCE, but I’ve see people say they have been PT aides and gotten in. An ER is definitely a more “medical” setting, but I thought that PCE was anything “hands-on”. Should I contact the schools I want to apply to?
  7. I am volunteering at a hippotherapy/physical therapy place. Basically it serves as therapy for special needs kids/teens. A physical therapist gets them on a horse and works with them while they are riding. My role is to walk on the other side and physically hold the rider in place on the horse. I also assist with some hands on treatment such as moving arms/legs under the supervision of a PT. This is not a paid position but I did go through an extensive training. I know it can count as HCE, but it’s very hands on so I was thinking it could count as PCE. What do you think? Trying to get others opinions before emailing schools.
  8. My university is really picky and requires almost all majors to take Calc 1 and 2. I’m not a math oriented person, so I picked a major in the liberal arts college to avoid math. I am managing to fit in my prerequisites.
  9. I’ll graduate with loans, so a job that pays close to minimum wage as a tech isn’t going to work out very well. I will do whatever I have to do to get in though, but I don’t know about the money situation.
  10. Thanks for the link! It seems like a really good cause! I’ll look into it.
  11. I’ve found some volunteer opportunities that are online. One of them is a content writer for a blog and others are things like helping with marketing or sending cards to people in need. Could I put this on my application as volunteer work (obviously not HCE) or would this be frowned upon? The organizations are legit and one even says they will provide a certificate for community service hours.
  12. wow! I am a sophomore, so I'm still a while away from applying but I have been worried about my lack of hours. TTU is one of my top choices, would you say that they are more focused on other parts of your app instead of experience? What's your secret? haha!
  13. I am currently a stressed out pre-pa sophomore in college. I have just started acquiring hours these past few months and I should have about 50 by the end of the year. I know that's not a lot at all, but I am very busy with school. I am going to be taking 18 credit hours next spring and then more classes next summer. I've completed almost half of the pre-reqs for pa school and I have a 4.0 gpa so far. Will my grades make up for my lack of experience? I know that I have more time to work on getting hce/pce but I can only volunteer for a limited number of hours each week and the volunteer jobs count for hce but not for pce. I know that getting a job is the best way to acquire hours but I just don't have the time. I think I may have 500-700 hours by the time I start applying. Thankfully, the schools near me don't require experience, they say it's recommended. Have there been success stories of getting accepted into pa school with less than average hce/pce?
