  1. Hello! I recently applied for the NHSC and HPSP Scholarships and I have not really been able to find any information or discussion from current students or PAs who have received these scholarships. Was finding a job after graduation difficult and did you have a lot of choice in where you were placed or did you have to move? How is the experience of both scholarships during school and do you have any other information you would like to share about either? Thank you!
  2. Hi, are you a recipient of the scholarship? Did they mention anything to you about what the relocation factor is like once you graduate? Do you get to chose a VA or do they place you? I just applied and I am wondering what the selection process for sites to work at is like!
  3. Did they notify you what day your interview is or give you a choice?
  4. Is your interview scheduled for after that CASPer date or is it sometime soon?
  5. Oh okay cool I was under the impression we had to have CASPer before our interview or acceptance so that is good news!
  6. Congrats!! If you dont mind me asking, when did you submit and have you taken the casper exam?
  7. Congrats!! When did you submit your application or have it under review/complete? Also, did you take the CASPer exam already?
  8. I also took a lot of pre-reqs in hybrid type classes so I think I can relate to a lot of what you are saying here. If you had the choice between the online program and an in-person program but you would graduate a year earlier from the in-person program what would you do? I think thats one of the biggest conflicts for me as of right now
  9. I was definitely very skeptical about not getting any hands on experience for an entire year but I recently found out the program has what they call the "Clinical Experience in Early Didactic" where after about two months in to the didactic year you spend 4-6 hours each week at an approved healthcare facility with a provider interacting hands on with patients. Do you think you would still be able to learn these things through this type of environment? Since I have not started PA school yet I wasnt sure what kind of patient interaction you get during didactic year
  10. Hello all! I am currently trying to decide between two schools and I need some assistance as I am very conflicted. One program is in person and it is 26 months and starts in July, but I would have to move out of state to attend and would graduate in May 2021. The other program is Yale's newer online program and would start in January and I would graduate a year later in May 2022 but I would be able to stay in state and not move at all since the didactic year is online. The actual cost for the programs is almost exactly the same, the only real difference is the graduation dates, location, and the fact that one is online versus in person. How does everyone feel about a program being online in the didactic year? I am pretty conflicted about it but I would very much like to avoid moving out of state if I do not have to but I am worried that I will miss out on in person interactions at the other program. I am really conflicted on what to do here and any thoughts or opinions would be very helpful. Thanks so much!
  11. Hey! I am in the same boat as you. I called them last week and I asked if they were still giving out interviews and they said yes and that they would be continuing with them "through the spring". I have not heard back from them either though and it is getting pretty late in the cycle so I feel like they are most likely done with interviews. Hopefully I am wrong though and we both get one!!
  12. Has anyone interviewed or been accepted lately?
  13. Did you take out private loans or were they federal/from a school?
  14. Thank yall for the advice, I really appreciate it! I decided I will go to the interview and then decide after that based on what happens!
