  1. Hello fellow PA's & PA students. I have just finished my 2nd quarter of PA school and am currently at a 3.8 GPA. Despite this, I have been doubting my ability to remember everything for the PANCE 1.5 years from now. This is because I find myself not remembering 100% of everything I have learned these past 2 quarters. I feel like I am forced to remember and dump my memory, and that I retain less and less as the days go by. When I review the material, I panic because I find that what I had a solid grasp on weeks/months ago, are no longer with me. I fear that I will graduate and not know enough to pass the PANCE at this current rate. What scares me more is that there is still more medicine to learn, leaving very little time to review old material. Many people have been able to get through PA/MD/DO school and successfully earned their license, but for some reason I feel that I am doing something wrong; I am unsure if it is me or my lack of confidence in myself. Has anyone felt this way during their time in PA school, and do you have any advice for someone like me who feels this way? I look forward to hearing back from my fellow peers, and thank you in advance for your replies.
  2. Hello everyone, I am a PA student who is currently working on a class presentation regarding PA owned practices. I decided to choose the topic of salary and cost of business/financial burden of a PA owned practice, as I have a large interest/small background in entrepreneurship/business/investing, and would like to hear first hand experiences from PA's who are currently running their own PA owned practice! I have a few questions that I was hoping everybody involved could help me with. You may answer any questions you feel comfortable with, or have the time to answer as I am sure you are very busy. 1. What is the approximate gross and net profit that you have been earning for the past 5-10 years as a PA owned practice, and please state if you are the sole stakeholder, or if there are additional stakeholders in the business as that would clear up any outlier numbers. 2. What is the approximate overhead that is typically spent for your practice (please also include the state where the practice is located), and how much money is allocated to each (does not have to be super detailed, eg. billers, MA's, rent/utilities, malpractice insurance, physician costs, licensing, office manager). 3. What insurance do you typically accept? How many of patients are cash payers? 4. Any additional tips/information that you would like to add or for students in the class to know? Any resources that you recommend me to look in to regarding the above information? I'd like to thank everyone in advance who took the time to read this and enlighten me with your answers. I am in the process of Googling and scouring the forums for this information, but with little luck, and feel that there is no better information than that coming straight from the people who participate in this business. I look forward to seeing your replies!
  3. Hello, I am currently in the mix between two schools, one being an in state school, and the other being an out of state school. My question is, knowing that I plan to practice in my home state in the future, will graduating from an out of state school put me at a disadvantage when searching for a PA position in my home state? Looking forward to hearing your insight and experiences. Thank you in advance for your replies!
  4. Recieved an acceptance phone call yesterday afternoon, interviewed on Nov 27th. Good luck everyone!
  5. Correct me if I'm wrong, but if I recall correctly I think they said that they would inform us of acceptances 2-4 weeks after the last group interviews in November?
  6. I haven't heard either, was thinking I didn't get accepted either since I didn't think i did that great on that interview ?
  7. @Stanfordman84 it was just an interview with 2 of the faculty members at once. No trick questions, like others have said, they're just trying to get to know you.
  8. Finished the interview portion a few days ago. Let me know when you guys start receiving acceptance/rejection letters, I'll keep you guys updated as well!
