  1. Hello everyone, I am currently in my second semester of my didactic year. I struggled so much my first semester and ended up having to remediate one class. I feel like I retained nothing from my first semester and can barely recall things. I get so anxious everyday over my future . I have no idea how to face my family if I do fail. Also it would really crush me because this is what I've been working towards for the past 3 years since I graduated high school. Compared to my other classmates I feel like I know the least. Living in fear everyday is really getting to me emotionally and I don't know what to do.
  2. Hey everybody, I'm in a bad spot and I honestly don't know what to do. I am a PA student attending a 24-month program in the Northeast. I am at the end of my first semester of my didactic year and I know I'm already going on academic probation (GPA <3.0). It's not for lack of effort, when I started the program last year I had a family member come close to death and took an LOA instead of failing/probation/retaking courses. I don't regret that decision but while on my LOA I developed some severe health problems and 3 week before school started I had a major surgery that led to several complications. As a result of constantly being sick and trying to resolve the issues, my grades have suffered terribly. As it stands I will probably be passing all of my classes except Anatomy (this is a dissection lab and the PA students have their own cadavers as we are not attached to a medical school). I have struggled in this class and If i don't pass it (get a C-) I will be allowed to retake the course next fall (we don't have any other way/time to make up the classes as we use cohort training,and it will extend my time yet another 5 months. I honestly don't know if it's even worth it. I'll be spending 5 months, thousands of dollars in extra tuition, creating a terrible situation with my lease, and it just seems to add so many variables. I served as an Army medic, that's how I came to love the idea of becoming a PA after working with some of the best in the world (From every branch of service!). Please, anybody just chime in. As much as I'd be disappointed to leave the program I know there are opportunities in accelerated BSN/NP programs or even doing a cheap RN at my local community college. I'm 28 and thank goodness I don't have a family to support but I just don't know what to do.
  3. I messed up really badly and I don't know how I can get into PA school anymore and I'm slowly losing my confidence. I'm standing on a F right now for General Chemistry I , a C- , D , for General Biology I, and a D for math. What do I do? I don't know where to go from here on out. How can I get into PA school anymore? What should I do? Any advice..?
