  1. I'm going to an info. session on the 21st. I'm meeting with the college recruiter and the PA program recruiter. We're going to go over my transcripts, etc. Can anyone give me any advise? What questions do I ask? What's the dress code for an info. session? I want to make a good impression for the PA recruiter. Thanks!:saddd:
  2. Hi, I read a bad review about the PA program at Kettering from a person who received their PA degree there. He said that they had to go far away for their clinical rotations b/c some doctors did not think Kettering PA students were prepared enough. Has anyone heard of this??
  3. Thank you Just Steve. We have to go there eventually to find a place to live. But early February is just too soon money-wise.
  4. Hi, A new PA program at Ohio Dominican University in Columbus, OH is having an open house on Feb. 7th. I RSVP'd and said that I would go. Now I don't know if I can make it b/c of money (I live in Dallas). Would I look bad if I cancelled my RSVP?? I really would like to go, but I don't know if I can. I'm moving to OH soon. That's why I'm interested in the program. Thanks.
  5. Do they think taking the prereq's at Kettering helped their chances in getting in the PA program?
  6. I'm reading this book by Andrew Rodican about how to get into PA school and he suggests getting an interview with the PA program director. But he doesn't say what to ask or talk to them about? A lot of my questions can be answered on the web site or by admissions counselors. Any ideas on what to talk to them about? He said it helps put a face to a name. Thanks!
  7. Thank you ohiovolffemtp, that makes me feel better that I'm not that old. I am going to start the PA process right away. I'll figure out what to get an ADN in. Maybe an x-ray tech or something. But we're moving from TX to Cincinnati this Spring. So I think I should concentrate on moving first. Then I'll get things in gear towards my PA degree. Good luck in PA school! That's great that you went for it. Good for you. You're an inspiration to me.
  8. Hi, I have my B.A. already, but can I take my pre-req's at Kettering for the PA program? I read they give preference to students that take classes there. I still have to take my Chemistry classes and Microbiology. I looked on their web site and I can't tell if I can just take classes there like a community college or not. Thanks.
  9. Thanks to everybody that replied. Everyone had really good points and showed me the reality of my situation. It makes me sad though. Sad and mad b/c I didn't pursue this when I was in my 20's or early 30's. I just now "woke up" when I turned 40 this year. If I was younger I would go for PA for sure! I just don't want ANOTHER regret on my hands. I just don't want to live, I want to LIVE. I have alot to think about. Thanks again all, and good luck!!
  10. Hi all, I'm 40 yrs old, I'm married with a 3 yr old daughter. Am I crazy for even thinking of being a PA? I have a B.A. in Advertising and some science classes. But I still need 5 more classes before applying to a program. We are struggling financially BIG TIME and it's causing me ALOT of stress. We can't pay the bills. I'm thinking of just getting my ADN in nursing. But, gee, it would be great to be a PA. I'm so jealous of other women that are my age and have great careers. I'm worried about not being there for my family. Any advise would be appreciated!
