  1. Thank you for the advice! I planned a trip at the end of this month, and after that will come right back to work. Work doesn't bother (or exhaust) me too much, so Im relieved in that sense.
  2. Hello everyone! I start school at the end of May, but I am still working 36-40 hours weekly, as I am the sole provider in my family. I know that it would be advantageous for me to quit my job before school starts, but its very difficult, as one can imagine. I have managed to save about 2-3 grand (which I can use for my family the month before school starts), or I can keep my job, save that money for school itself, and quit 10 days before school starts (assuming my loans get dispensed a month before school begins). Do you think I should my job sooner? If finances weren't such a worry, I would've quit when I first received my acceptance. I know that I can somewhat manage if I quit a month sooner for PA school, but I might struggle (not terribly) financially because of it.
  3. I wish I knew about this program sooner! I would've applied!
  4. Hello everyone- I was wondering if anyone had any advice on what the best laptop would be for PA school? I start in a couple of months, and before I buy something, I just want to know what advice I could get! Also, any additional things I would need for school? Thanks!
  5. AHHH!!!! I JUST GOT INVITED FOR AN INTERVIEW!!!!!!!!!! SO EXCITED!!!!!!!! Can any one tell me how much the deposit would be to accept a seat (should they offer me one)? Additionally, any tips and tricks for the interview!? Seton Hall was my top choice!!!!!!! (sorry if I sound overly excited, its just that Im so happy!!!!!!!!!)
  6. I haven't started PA school to know just how useful it is- but I do like the advice. If I follow through with it, I think ill successful. The book explains how one should study throughout school for PANCE, be professional always, and how to conduct yourself during clinical year (and didactic year as well obviously). I imagine I will read it one last time before May.
  7. I start PA school in 5 months, and I am BEYOND ecstatic! However, I am also extremely nervous, as I have been out of school for about 2 years. I read the book "Surviving PA School: Secrets You Must Unlock to Excel as a PA Student," and I am working full time (as I support my family) until school starts. I am looking for any other advice for before school starts. I know many people discourage studying before hand, but I want to know if theres something I can do that my future self will thank me for. Thank everyone!
  8. Hello all! Im starting PA school soon, and although I know that I will probably have many changes of heart in what I where I want to practice in the future, I have strong likings in emergency medicine, surgery, and dermatology. Im from New Jersey and its likely that I will stay here, so I was wondering if anyone knew what the starting salary was for these field(s). THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH IN ADVANCE!!
  9. I heard back friday 12-7-18 by phone that I got in! My interview was 11/28/18
  10. Yes they do! Students go to Monmouth Medical Hospital and dissect there.
  11. I just got off the waitlist, but made the hard decision to give up the seat. I hope this gives someone else the opportunity!!!
  12. I got a n email stating that I hold one of the top spots on the waitlist. Lets see
  13. Congrats guys!! There is a facebook group!! You guys should be receiving an email from Christine!!
  14. It will be. Only reason why I suggest earlier is because you wont get your complete score until a month later. additionally, TU has rolling admissions, which means first come, first serve. The application cycle opens end of April, and TU begins looking at apps around end of May, early June. So you want to apply as early as possible to increase your chances, but depending on how competitive you are as an applicant, you might be fine applying in July. I had 2 prereqs pending (taking them now).
  15. I took the gre in March, and applied to temple mid-May. So if I were you, I would begin studying now, and take it sometime in the Spring. Best of luck!
