  1. Hi! I am currently in my fourth week of PA school and having some serious doubts as to what I am getting myself into. I am worried for several of the following reasons: that with the impact of covid 19 will take years to recover jobs (even healthcare), the amount of new PAs and NPs being pumped out of schools will cause more competition, and this study I read from the Bureau of Health Workforce...basically stating that the market will be saturated for PA's by 2025... Im worried, it'll be very hard to find work in southern Ca after school and I see some new PAs taking like, 8 months to a year to find a job.. I worry this will only get worse in the next few years when I graduate in 2022!! I am not able to relocate out of state, nor can leave the metropolitan area around LA. I have a career to fall back on, if I decide to walk away from PA school making 60-70k. I know no one can 100% say what will happen in the future.. but I am concerned to the point of walking away all-together. Any input or advice would be appreciated.
  2. Thanks for your response! I appreciate it. Wondering which program was your number one program?
  3. Hi everyone! I feel extremely fortunate to have been accepted at both LLU and Western for fall of 2020. I am now trying to decide which program I should attend. Anyone have any advice or input into which program is overall the better one? Does the PA school one goes to have any weight on job prospects after graduation? I know that US news ranks Western higher than LLU.. but I'm unsure of how relevant that ranking actually is. I have about 4 years of experience in healthcare and i like the fact that it seems LLU takes on more mature students with paid work experience vs Western. So I am leaning towards LLU. Thanks a lot in advance
