  1. Do you think that the PANCE rate and 1 clinical elective are okay? The programs are about the same cost anyway. And both would be in new cities.
  2. I have been accepted to two schools so far. I am getting very close to the deadline to decide which program I will attend and have put deposits down at both schools. I am having trouble making a final decision because I like both schools. Can anyone share advice as to what factors and criteria are most important in making my decision. School A: in-state, just below average PANCE, 1 clinical elective, longer didactic days, 4 semesters of didactic, 60 person class, no research paper. Friendly staff and very welcoming. I had a really good feeling being there and enjoyed how nice everyone was. School provides housing if rotations are very far. School B: out-of-state, above average PANCE with prep course, 2 clinical electives, 2 primary care rotations, shorter didactic days (more time to sleep/study), 3 semesters of didactic, 40 person class, research paper. I met less staff but I liked those I met. Had a good experience at interview but not amazing (MMI interviews). School does not provide housing for rotations, but seemed that most are local. If anyone has any advice on choosing a program I would greatly appreciate it!
  3. I noticed that Wingate's program does not include some courses that other programs do such as: clinical behavioral medicine, health promotion, legal issues in healthcare, physiology, medical terminology, life support procedures, and clinical genetics. Do students feel prepared and confident to work as PAs without classes such as these? Do you feel like you are lacking knowledge in any areas because they were not included in the curriculum? Do you learn any topics relating to these courses within your other classes? I want to make sure I choose a program with curriculum that will make well prepared and well rounded.
