    Thanks for posting Marverick87. I knew a few PA students that got these awards back in the 90s. You are right it was a better deal than the Military & NHSC. Especially for Vets. LesH

  3. I didn't say you did, and sorry if I came off that way. That was the perception that the youngblood walked away with not me I understand where you and others are coming from. I agree that some folks would be happier as docs and I think some folks should be docs and not PAs. I'm backing away slowly with my hands in the air and going back to enjoying my rum and coke. We have no beef . Forgive my typos....
  4. Not everyone thinks being a PA sucks. There are veteran PAs that enjoy what they do and are happy with their career choice. I know a lot of them. They are just not forum members so you might not get to hear their perspective.
  5. Life is too short to have a lot of regrets and what ifs. If you have the opportunity to do something that you think will make you happier, challenge you and contribute to the betterment of all... do it! As far as the PA to Doc thing, it took me a while to get that, but a few of my former students that went on to become physicians helped me understand. So I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks lol.
  6. While I know why they do this, it really is a disservice to the students they advise. Terrible way to present all the options to help a student make an "informed" decision about their education.
  7. To all that interview today, here's to a good interview experience. Just relax (as much as possible) the interviews aren't that terrible. Try and enjoy your day meeting new people and hopefully future colleagues.
  8. FYI The 2015 National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Loan Repayment Program application cycle is now open and will close on March 30, 2015 at 7:30 PM EST. This Program provides loan repayment assistance to licensed primary care medical, dental, and mental and behavioral health providers who serve in communities with limited access to health care. There are both full-time and half-time service options. The 2015 application cycle is expected to be competitive. On average, it can take up to three weeks to complete an application so applicants are encouraged to apply early. This year the process may improve for applicants, now that some loan information can be automatically populated by theNational Student Loan Data System. Available resources include the Application and Program Guidance and instructions on how to apply. Technical assistance provided by NHSC program staff is available during the following dates: NHSC Loan Repayment Application & Program Guidelines Webinar February 3, 2015 from 8:00 – 9:30 PM EST Access link: https://hrsaseminar....om/nhsclrp2015/ Dial-in Number: 1-888-391-6801 Passcode: 8081979 * To participate in the webinar, you will need to use both the access link and the dial-in number.

  9. SoCal you would be surprised at the number of HS and College career counselors recommending this exact pathway. I've heard this as far back as the late 80s. Just saying.
