  1. Hey PA community, I have a full sleeve tattoo and thus far i have not had any negative experience when applying for jobs and or interviewing. However, i'm curious if anyone has had any negative feedback or have not received a job offer due to visible or non-visible tattoos?
  2. The class list is supposed to come out on Friday and the Facebook page you guys are talking about looked sketchy to me as well. So when the list comes out and if rush doesn't make a Facebook page themselves we can def coordinate. Really looking to room with a classmate!
  3. Congratulations!!! Super excited for you!
  4. It sucks to say but there is really no preparing for it. I looked up about 100 questions, just to kind of see what the questions might be. None of them showed up, the best way to handle the situation is be honest with what you do and how you feel. They honestly can pick out rehearsed answers, as long as you dont come off as you dont care and dont say anything too crazy you'll be fine! They also want to see how you interact, its obviously a very stressful day but one of my best interviews came from me not taking myself so seriously.
  5. Hey! I'm extremely interested in practicing as a PA in countries outside of America. I've been hoping that doctor's without borders would become more accessible with the influx of PA's and the increase of the autonomy within the profession but that still may be a ways off. I thought i would use the forum to hear about your experience or anything that you have heard about opportunities for PA's to use their licenses for disaster relief or medical mission trips across the world. I feel as if there are many different avenues that align with the concept of doctors without border but may be less known. I was hoping that anyone with any information on programs would be able to give me any details or if you have any personal experience, what was your day to day functions like and did you feel as though you were making an impact in whatever community or situation you were placed. I was also curious if you felt that having any advanced degrees in public health or leadership ect... would prove useful. Thank you in advance!
  6. Hey guys, This is a question for anyone who is already attending Rush University or has graduated from the program. I was curious to know how many of your classmates completed the program. I have seen stats online but wanted to hear from the students who have experienced first hand. So i guess im asking what your class size was when you began the program and what your class size was after, feel free to reply here or message me!
  7. Has anyone heard anything about the deposit? Haven’t heard anything in a month or so
  8. Question for those who were waitlisted, did you guys have to accept the waitlist position online or did you just email Ashley Skelly that you would accept? If you just emailed, did you guys get a confirmation response?
  9. Apparently, according to last year they found out as early as the same day, but i believe September 13th is the 2nd interview group and i haven't seen or heard anything from the first. So things may have changed since last year!
  10. Received an interview for September 13th by email. Very excited to meet everyone! Applied around June 20th
  11. I wore a nice button shirt and adidas pants lool
  12. It's rolling and i don't think it's to late to apply. It will def be more competitve for you since they just did first round interviews but also cause its rolling i think you have a very good chance still! Also a lot of people turn down and decline interviews/acceptances so, that opens up more spots. I think you should apply!
  13. B.S: Biology Minor: Chem Overall GPA:3.5 Science GPA: Depending on the classes it ranges from a 3.1-3.3ish Healthcare Experience: 9000+ Hours Certified Nursing Assistant Leadership Experience 5000+ Resident Adviser Student Ambassador + Some other oddly specific College leadership things Teaching Experience 1500+ Tutor Biology, English and History to undeserved schools in the area Recommendations (had a pretty strong relationship with almost all) 1 Nurse Practitioner 1 Director 1 RN C.C 1 Academic adviser Shadowing: NP 80+ Working as a CNA, coordinating shadowing with transplant team, i worked around NP's and PA's but most specifically the NP. Shadowing: PA (outpatient clinic): 15+ hours, would have loved a recommendation from her but she was going through some family issues
  14. Hey guys I’ll post my stats in a bit, felt a little weird about it because they weren’t amazing (especially not amazing). But hoping it might help you guys see a picture of what they could be looking for (Im not really sure either tbh). Blessed and feel really lucky to have gotten an acceptance but also I’m a 2nd time applicant so it was definite trial and error. If anyone had any questions (not that I know a lot lol). Feel free to message me.
  15. Nope, I thought they said they make decisions late August and September but I know they pick 1 or 2 they really like some times.
