  1. bstone, I do not know what is going on but I received a letter via snail mail from them yesterday stating that they will not be accepting a class this year and to monitor the Malcolm X webpage for information and updates about the program.
  2. Thanks for the advice. I checked my spam thoroughly and I still did not receive an email. I will call the program tomorrow. It's really weird because I received all of their other emails:/ It is very disappointing to know that they will not be accepting applications this year. Thanks everyone for the update!
  3. Thanks for the update. Knowing that the program starts in a couple of weeks is very discouraging for people who live in other states:( I live in North Carolina and would not have time to quit my job and find somewhere to live in Chicago if I was interviewed and accepted to the program.
  4. Hello All! Yes the guy is picking up the phone.....at least he picked up today. Sdave6, you were definitely right about the mumbling. I had to ask him to speak up several times, but I finally understood what he said. He told me that we should be hearing something about an interview in a few weeks via email. I just said ok and hung up. I hope this was helpful:/

  6. LOL! I felt the same way when I opened the email yesterday. I thought I was going to be declined or invited for an interview when I saw the headline; only to find out that it was a duplicate email from January saying that they had received my application:(
  7. You guys are awesome! All of this information is very useful! I really appreciate it:)

  10. Hey Guys, My friend has shown a lot of interest in the PA profession and wants to start looking into different PA programs. Unfortunately, I do not have anything positive to say about the program that I attend right now. Please brag about your PA program if you are satisfied with it. Please explain why you like your program and the name please:) I know all PA programs has it's pros and cons. I do not want her to experience a terrible experience when she starts a program. Thanks guys!

  13. Hello All, Just wondering which class you thought was the most difficult during PA school? Also please share your resources that were used to get you through that difficult course. For me ,it was anatomy and I found some DVD's called Acland gross Anatomy Video Atlas of the Human body. It seems like a great study tool:) Thanks for sharing
  14. Just Steve, What a great website for learning Anatomy! As a matter of fact, all the websites that have been suggested are wonderful and I have been using all of them! Iain1028 I just purchased a white board and it is very helpful:) MCHAD, I am definitely going to see someone about my anxiety. It is funny because I didn't have any anxiety issues prior to PA school, however as soon as I took my first exam, my heart starting pounding and I felt so dizzy:( I started reading a book called "Study Without Stress Mastering Medical Sciences" by Kathleen Straker and Eugenia Kelman. This book has been very helpful and offers tips to help ease anxiety before taking test specifically for medical students. Some of my classmates have to take their exams in a different room too for anxiety. Next year I will be doing the same:) Ventana, Yes, I used to sleep with my books everynight:) One thing that you mentioned that I lacked doing was reading the lecture material before and after class. The "Study Without Stress" book also suggested pre reading before every lecture. PA school has been a very humbling experience for me. I used to be on the top of my class during my undergraduate years and now I am at the bottom of the barrel in PA school. I remember wanting to leave school so many times because I was so overwhelmed and just felt STUPID. I used to beat myself up constantly and study harder, however it just increased my anxiety. So now I have to repeat the semester over, but I am thankful that my program offered me a seat. I have worked too hard to get here and being a PA is what I have wanted to do since I started attending college. I am not going to give up and I appreciate all of you taking the time to help me. It has truly been a blessing:) Happy Holidays to all of you!
