  2. I haven't been accepted (fingers and toes crossed though!) but I wanted to make a thread for those who have to network. So, spill it! When did you interview, when did you receive your acceptance letter, and what made you choose NU?
  3. I am interested in pursuing oncology as a PA. I was hoping to shadow one while applying to PA school, but wasn't able to find a facility that would allow me to, despite Dana Farber at my back door. I was wondering if someone could share their responsibilities. Do you work out of a clinic? Do you round in the associated hospital? What is the best and worst part of your job?
  4. Which is why I felt comfortable putting it under community service. If it was my only experience I wouldn't have listed it.
  5. Some people might think I'm crazy, but I volunteered 50-60 hours doing adoptions for an animal shelter and put it on my application. I had 7,000 patient contact hours, but the shelter was my only volunteer project and it was important to me so I listed it. They ADCOMs will either think I'm well rounded or crazy. I'm willing to take a small risk. :)
