  1. My hospital is hiring PRN admissionists, and the advertised rate is $80/hour for day shift and $100/hour for nights.
  2. Selling CME for Life binder ("The Original Chicago Course") from $750 course. No markings or highlighting, excellent condition. $150, shipping included. attachments (1).zip
  3. I did 100% of my prerequisite courses at a community college... worked out fine for me, just make sure the schools you're applying to will accept them. Some school websites explicitly state that they do not accept CC credits.
  4. When I interviewed, I utilized Charlene's Safe Ride (http://www.briercreektaxis.com/) to get to and from the airport. However, you'd still have to figure out how to get from your hotel to the PA Program Building the morning of the interview. All things considered, renting a car from the airport is probably your best bet. Use hotwire for the best rate. Good luck on your interview! There is plenty of [free] parking at the PA Program.

    Rejected, too. Wah.
  6. Well, I never heard anything... guess I wasn't a finalist :(
  7. @soaringup14 Ugh, nothing yet! When they said they'd announce finalists by August 15th, I didn't think they'd actually wait until August 15th! :(
  8. <<bump>> any finalists out there? I have not heard anything, but read that we'll hear by August 15th

    Nothing new. Applied for a private student loan last week and that ding was on there. Snoofle-- not sure what settings you have on Credit karma, but, mine alerts me (by email) to new credit inquiries
  11. Thanks, @aiviphung! The only other thing they require is a college/university transcript, according to the following instructions: Class / Program Status Document(s) to Submit If you are currently an Undergraduate student Please upload your most current undergraduate transcript. If you are currently a Graduate student (Medical School, Pharmacy school, etc.) Please upload your most current transcript. Pass/Fail transcripts will be accepted. If you have recently graduated, and will be starting a new program in the Fall of 2013 Please upload your final transcript from the program you recently completed. If you have recently started a qualifying program, but have not received grades to date Please upload your final transcript from the last program you completed. If you are in a dual enrollment program Please upload both of your most recent transcripts together as one .pdf file or inside one .zip file.
  12. The good news: Got an email today that I was selected as a semi-finalist! The bad news: Professional head-shot required :( Looks like I'll be playing dress-up this afternoon...

    Nothing on creditkarma for me either :(
  14. You have 2 measly outstanding prerequisites -- doesn't sound so bad! At the very least, I'd recommend shadowing a couple of PAs to get a sense for what the job may entail. If that doesn't turn you off, you need to get your hands dirty. Nursing assistant certifications are relatively cheap and quick to come by. If possible, I'd become a CNA part-time in a hospital on the weekends or evenings. Don't quit your job at MUSC until you're certain that you're willing to sacrifice what's necessary to become a PA. On a personal note, I wasted a lot of time and money on a BA in Economics and a Masters in Health Systems Management. Didn't start the journey to become a PA until I was 26. As others have said, at 25, you're still a young-blood. Try not to get discouraged by the stats people post on the forums, and best of luck to you!
