  1. Not sure if this helps, but I'm a new-grad who has received the following offer from a dermatology group recently: $105K base salary Incentive bonus of 25% of collections > $18,000/month, eligible immediately Health ins premiums covered for self and family 18 month non-compete
  2. I agree with one of the previous posts about HelpCampus, AKA Help zebra. I used that almost exclusively to study for the PANCE and I passed with a lot of room to spare. Regarding question banks, Help comes with a ton, definitely enough in my opinion. But, if you're looking for more questions, I really liked ExamMaster and PAeasy. ExamMaster by far had the most difficult questions, but they included solid explanations for each answer. I was pretty surprised that PAeasy was a fairly solid representation of what was on the PANCE.
  3. Hello all, I'm just checking to see if there has been any activity since the first round of applicants got notification of their status a few weeks ago. I'm still holding out hope since I wasn't chosen in the first round. I'm wondering if there is a "rolling admissions" style selection practice. Maybe we're all just waiting for those that were notified to accept or reject before the next round of notifications goes out. Any thoughts? Congratulations to those of you that were selected already.
  4. jts, Thanks for starting this discussion. I posted the message below to another thread that you were on. I'd like to get your opinion. Thanks! ******************************************************* A big THANK YOU to all of the posters here answering questions about the NHSC programs. I'm an applicant for the scholarship this cycle. I would really like to know how important it is to be a "Disadvantaged Student" or someone who qualifies for EFN (Extreme Financial Need)? According to the NHSC website, applicants with EFN are given the highest priority, followed by students with a Disadvantaged Background. For those who received the scholarship last year, did you qualify as Disadvantaged? I'm hearing varying opinions on this subject. There seems to be a group that believes it's not even worth applying if you are not Disadvantaged or have EFN. But, it seems that there are some that received the award without that status. A quick p As if getting accepted into PA school was not challenging enough ;-) the NHSC scholarship appears to be extremely competitive. Over 2,000 applicants for ~200 awards. Daunting indeed. One of the customer service reps at NHSC told me there could be more than double the number of applicants. Who knows if that is true or not.

  6. Got the call from Ted that I was accepted. Wow, what an honor! I was accepted at Pacific as well. Now the decision. Leaning towards Pacific for a variety of reasons. No knock on OHSU at all. I truly believe their ranking is deserved. The class of 2016 is especially in for a treat. That new academic building at the bottom of the hill is going to be incredible.
  7. Hi everyone, I was in the October group and will be joining the class of 2015 as well. Can't wait to meet everyone. I'm moving from Bend, OR, about 3 hours away. Was anyone else in the October interview group? Eric
  8. Molly, Yes, I too believe that is accurate. Pacific appears to be super efficient at the interview process. It's doesn't surprise me at all that they are having their final interview day on Dec. 1st. I agree with January, the interview at Pacific was a great experience. Best of luck to you.
  9. Got the call from Leah this afternoon...ACCEPTED!!! So pumped to attend Pacific! The interview experience was fantastic and the more I learn about their program, the more impressed I am. Good luck to all of those that are waiting for the call or interviewing next month. I can't wait to meet my fellow classmates.
  10. painbaler, as a fellow applicant waiting to hear from this school about an interview, your rejection letter is disheartening. Especially considering your solid stats. One thing I noticed though was your 1,500 hours of patient contact. From what I've heard, they are pretty strict about 2,000 hours accumulated by the October deadline. Might just be a "check-the-box" disqualification? Especially when they have 1,200+ applications to weed through.
  11. Hi lilian87, if you don't mind me asking, when did OHSU confirm that your application was complete...CASPA, supplemental, GRE scores all in? Thanks!
  12. I submitted both CASPA and supplemental around 7/31/12. I hope that helps.
  13. olychrish, GMarie, <br><br>That makes 3 of us! I got invited for an interview on Oct 27 as well. So psyched! Can't wait. See you there.
