  1. If someone could point me in the right direction for applying for scholarships and grants before pa school that would be great. If there are previous links or topics that exist that you could link me in, it would be appreciated
  2. School A is about 1 hour from school and in my opinion based on the freeways I between , not possible to commute. It is really just nice for a support system which in all honesty I don’t really value that much. Ya I know but it’s true. School B also has a live pig dissection for practice with surgical education. They also have 4 electives . I’m 50/50 torn rn
  3. did anyone interview from out of state? Does the cost of the program concern you? Thanks
  4. So im in a similar situation. The "better" school cost about 40K more but will allow 4 surgical rotations and is highly focused on creating surgical PA's. This is what I am primarily focused on. Do you think it is worth it. Both schools will prepare me to pass the pance
  5. Hello everyone, I have been fortunate enough to be accepted to two PA programs. I know there are other topics about this but I was hoping you all could help me out a little, besides what else is a forum like this for? Pros School A- Close to home ~97k tuition, cheap cost of living 100% Pance Pass Rate Staff seems qualified and genuinely interested in helping their students. Positive reviews from students that i have reached out to I would like to work in the same state as school A Cons School A Brand New program, started in 2016 .... provisional status Only one elective No way to know forsure how well established their clinical rotations are. Students have postive things to say Pros school B Program very well established, 40+ years Program has their own hospital system, all clinical rotations are essentially guaranteed to be well established. Focus heavily or surgery which is what I am passionate about Cheap cost of living Cons school B Tuition ~140k Out of state, I am excited about the move though Live cadaveric dissection Overall both programs will prepare me well for the pance. Is a slightly better education with better rotations really worth 40K...
  6. I got denied after being waitlisted for interview, no worries however. I have been accepted to a few other schools. Good luck to everyone who’s waiting
  7. To anyone who has already been accepted, have you also received information from Calbaptist Graduate Admission with information on where to send security deposit?
  8. For those who have interviewed, can you comment on what you liked and didn’t like about the program?
  9. Accepted today , interviewed on September 27th!
  10. Hello there! I was hoping that those who were accepted and are currently enrolled in Lipscomb pa program could shed some light on how they like the program. Do you feel as if they provide students with the necessary tools to succeed as a PA? How is the staff and the overall organization of the program? Would you recommend your program? Does the school have to the resources to provide adequate clinical rotations? Pros and Cons? Thanks!
  11. Congratulations! Can I ask you why this is your top choice ?
  12. I’m curious to because I have an interview in Alabama on 10/31 so I would have to rearrange my flights if I am pulled off the waitlist
