  1. @mgriffiths I would love to do something like three 12's a week, but could only imagine a specialty like that being in something like EM, which I don't think I'd want to stay in for good.

I understand with time that some of my endeavors may have to be put to the back burner, but I just didn't want to solely focus on medicine to the point that it's all I seem to do, which is one of the biggest (if not the biggest) reasons why I chose PA over MD.

My fiancé is a nurse, so with us both working part ti
  4. Hi, everyone. I'm a non-traditional student, wrapping up my associate's degree in psychology from a small state school (not a community college) in Georgia. This college only offers 3 bachelor degrees, which is why I would finish elsewhere. I was a student at Arizona State Online, but transferred to take my prerequisites and labs in person. All my science prerequisites with in-person labs for PA programs will be done prior to transferring to the next college for my bachelor's degree. Now that I'm almost done, I was originally planning to then finish my degree through ASU, but am now considerin
