    To defer or not to defer..

    You could take the prereqs online through Doane or UNE as a last resort.
  2. I use to pass out when I saw blood as a kid/teen. I work as a Paramedic/FF now and see people shot, dismembered, etc and it hasn't bothered. Maybe just need to get used to it.

    Paramedic CEU's

    Thank you!
  4. I created the list for the reason you stated, essentially a starting point. As a lower GPA applicant it gave me hope to know that I could even apply. So I was just hoping that it would do the same for others. Obviously no PA school is going to matriculate a large amount of low GPA students, but knowing you have a shot is a confidence booster.

    Paramedic CEU's

    Do any current or former Paramedics know if attending PA school will count towards my CEU's to keep my Paramedic license or will I need to do CEU's while in school? Thanks!

    GRE Prep time?

    Hi all, How long did the majority of you spend studying for the GRE? Currently I am considering taking it on January 25th. I just started studying recently and I work full-time. On January 8th I will start my spring semester with 12 credit hours. I will be able to spend on average 2.5 hours per day studying 5 days per week. Any study material recommendations you have are also appreciated. I am currently sing Test Prep Scholar and Magoosh Flash Cards. Thanks!

    Comparison of material

    Thank you for your replies! Looks like I will be drinking from a fire hose then.
  10. Hi everyone, I am currently watching my sister navigate her way through her first year of medical school. It has started to intimidate me a little as I expect PA school is not far off in regard to content. She is spending almost every spare minute of her time studying to pass her classes. I have no expectation of PA school being easy at all. However, I am wondering if I should expect my life to look like a first year medical school student in regard to the amount of material I am expected to absorb and understand. Thank you!
  11. It would be almost impossible for me to figure out how many DPC hours I have from the countless 24 hour shifts I've worked at the Fire Department. Some shifts I run 20+ calls, other shifts I run 5. But to be able to give an honest number, I have no idea.
  12. People make career changes all the time. Making one from marketing to PA is no different. This individual sounds jaded and unhappy with their own life. Keep the tenacity up with your pre reqs and don't let the naysayers bother you.
  13. Isn't there going to be a change as far as degrees awarded in the PA profession? I thought that all schools were going to be required to award a Masters degree. I live about an hour from Miami so this program is appealing to me. However, I've also tried to contact the program to no avail.
  14. If you look at the EVMS website there is a pdf admissions handbook and there is all of the information that you need to know to apply. It speaks more to the GPA than on the website page in the handbook.
  15. Hi Kettle, I am very interested in applying to UND. Where do you live if you don't mind me asking. I live on the east coast, don't know if that's an automatic deal breaker. My HCE is really similar to yours. I've been a medic for 6 years and I teach EMT and Paramedic. If you don't mind me asking what was your GPA? Also how did you go about finding a preceptor for the program? Sorry for all the questions.
