  1. sillycibin, I do appreciate your concern, and I am aware of this. I have been volunteering and doing CME work, trying to do what I could during this time. All I can say is it was a difficult situation.
  2. Ventana~ what you said is something that has been in the back of my mind too. Especially because I do think it would be a great place for experience and learning. However, I don't think this position would be one with a possibility of starting without a contract. They were very sure they wanted to hire someone who they felt would stay with them for a while (hence, the 3 year contract?). I am meeting with the PA tomorrow, so I will see how it goes. I would love a residency, but those I could apply to now wouldn't even start until the early winter/spring.
  3. Thank you for all your input and advise. That's the feeling I had, just needed some confirmation. I'm glad I have other interviews at the same time, so I know there are other opportunities. I may be meeting with one of the PAs in the practice, but I'm pretty sure of the direction this is going. Thanks again!
  4. I know this is not a good offer, but I want to know if it's worth neogtiating or too far off the mark. I graduated a year ago, but have not worked yet as a PA due some family issues. I wish this had not been the case but it is what is. Due to this, I am aware that I am undervaluing myself because I have not been in the clinical setting for a while. I had my first interview at a family practice in a small community in NE Pennsylvania. I really like the office and the community it serves. I think the position would be great for experience, but I don't know that they value the PA as they
  5. If these are still being sent, especially new ones, I would really appreciate it! spw6270@lhup.edu
  6. From the source. The girl who got in and was #19 told me.:;)):
  7. I heard of someone getting in who was #19 last year. I think they will tell you your spot if you contact the school.
  8. Hi Dave, A lot of people have responded to you and I have not read through all of the responses, so I apologize if anything I say is redundant. Becoming a PA is possible for you, but you still have some work to do (and I do realize that you have worked hard already). When your GPA is not strong ADCOMs (those that will still look at your GPA) look at the most recent courses, most relevant courses, and upward trends. Some schools require that you achieve a B or better in your prerequisite courses. I think you should re-take those pre-reqs that are lower than a B. Not only will this impro
  9. I interviewed on Friday 2/10 9am. I received a call last Tuesday.
  10. Hello~ Congratulations to those who have been accepted! I just wanted to start to help some of us meet eachother, figure out where to live, and anything else. I will be starting at the main campus in May (conditionally - I have to complete a class). I am coming from the Philadelphia area. I'm very excited to start this next "chapter" in my life. Does anyone know if there is a facebook page that has been started? I would like to start one if not. Good luck to those of you who are still waiting to hear or on the waitlist! Sarah
  11. Hey everyone! I interviewed on the 5th. I really like this program as well. Congrats to all of you that have heard about acceptance! I am crossing my fingers and hoping I hear something good. It is a great school!
  12. That's not true! For most programs, if you submit the CASPA tonight by 11:59pm, you're fine, but don't wait that long because the transaction may not go through right away. Some programs do want to receive your CASPA app by the deadline, but most just want you to have submitted. Once the clock changes to 12:00am, CASPA won't allow you to submit to any OCT 1 deadlines. Good Luck!
  13. I am interviewing Friday at 7:30. Will anyone here be interviewing at that time?
  14. Hi Sarah,


    Wondering if you have heard anything from any schools yet. Anything?

  15. Hi - I was wondering if you have heard anything yet? I am in a similar situation. I have gotten 2 rejections and some secondaries, but nothing beyond that. I almost don't want to get into some of the schools, now that I have not gotten into the schools I really wanted to go to. I would almost wait to apply again next year. Let me know how you're doing - oh yeah, my name's Sarah...
