  1. I don't go to MU but know many people that do. A lot live in http://www.2040lofts.com and really like it. It is a very nice/safe apartment building close to campus.
  2. So I'm pretty sure I'm not getting into PA school this round. I will graduate in May and back home I work in a neurological rehab center as a residential aide. Should I stay there and/or get certified as an EMT, CNA, or surgical tech? Typically surg tech is a two year degree, but with my degree I could do it in a year. Thanks!
  3. What is a good format and what time should they be sent around?

  5. I got an email two weeks ago saying they were reviewing my app, but that's it.
  6. I did! I got an email last week saying all of my material was received.
  7. I'm actually from Wisconsin and to be honest, I decided on St. Petersburg because it seemed like a nice area.

    What section would I put participation on college athletics in CASPA? Or is that something I would not include? Also what section should I put TA'ing? Leadership? Thanks!
  9. My brother is also a PA, should I include that somehow?
  10. I just turned eight years old and I am playing doctor with my two older brothers. Coming from two parents that are in the medical field, this is our preferred method of play. Even from this small age, it was engrained into my mind that anyone of intelligence goes into the healthcare field. I entered college as a biology major with a pre-physician assistant emphasis simply because that is what my parents told me to do. It was not until I began struggling in my freshmen science classes that I began to question why I was doing this. Why did I want to struggle through years of science classes and

  12. Take my advice with a grain of salt because I just finished my first draft as well. I guess for me, I don't really like the first few paragraphs. They are intro paragraphs, but you don't really need them. I would start by your sentence "I am 29 years old and a frustrated..." I think that would gain interest really well. Also in your second to last paragraph maybe expand more on why PA over MD. I would also somewhere in there maybe talk about specific individuals in your work place. Going to the technicalities. Don't use conjunctions. Also you are a little comma happy. Congrats though! First
  13. I didn't even think to take it to the writing center! Great idea. I just put the book on hold :)
  14. Thank you guys!! I thought it would be interesting to see how my parents forged a path for me but then show how I individually decided that path as well. But I can definitely see what you mean by not even wanting to place a seed of doubt in the ADCOM's mind from the beginning. I just really have no idea how to take that part out, I guess. I am all very new to the personal narrative business- this is only my first draft. But I didn't know there was actually a book, I'll have to check that out! Thank you! I personally differed from y'all's opinions; I thought my intro was strong, but my last
