  1. Hey everyone. I just wanted to get some input from people who may be in the same position as me or anyone who has advice. I recently was accepted to a PA program that starts in January 2020, leaving me an entire year to work before school begins. I have no idea what type of job I would want. I worked as a CNA during undergrad and wouldn't mind doing that if it was my only option. I figured it wouldn't look very good if I got a job that utilized my bachelors degree (biology) and informed them that I would need to leave basically a year into it. I will be paying for my own rent during PA school so I need to most likely save $800-$1000 a month. Thank you for taking the time to read this and please let me know if you have any advice! Goodluck to everyone applying to programs and current PA students!
  2. @Hygiene2020 I went to MCP Boston and walked by this building everyday and had no idea that it was a hotel! It is called The Baldwin at Longwood Medical Centre. Seems like it has pretty good reviews and is decently priced. It's also super close to the building that you would be interviewing at. Hopefully this helps!
  3. I would also agree that you have a good chance of securing a few interviews from schools of your choice. My advice would be to get more patient care hours as a CNA. Taking the CNA class throughout the winter would be great. There are always tons of job opportunities for CNA's and you would for sure gain a ton of experience and patient care hours for the schools you are applying to. Everything else that you shared looks great. Interviews are really about getting to know you personally and why you are dedicated to becoming a PA. Good luck!
