  1. Hi all, Summary: Has anyone had success reapplying to schools after a mediocre interview? Does the interview rejection hurt my reapplication more than if they'd never interviewed me? Details: I was granted an interview at a couple programs this cycle and got waitlisted at one, rejected from the other. I love the program I was rejected from and - pending a miracle on that waitlist - I was thinking of reapplying next cycle. I wouldn't say I botched the interview; it just wasn't great overall, and I definitely would take a mulligan on one of the questions. But with my low
  2. Last week I got my first official application decision of the cycle. Opening the email, I scanned the words frantically until I found the sentence I was fearing the most. It read, “I regret to inform you of the program’s decision not to pursue your application further.” These words translate much more simply to “rejection.” For a moment I felt like I couldn’t breathe. I knew that I would be receiving rejections throughout the cycle, but had hoped and prayed it wouldn’t be from this school. Not only was this program one of my top choices, but it is also the only school in my home city. The
  3. So I've only had two interviews so far, been rejected by one, but it is making me consider what I will do if I don't get in this cycle. Applying is very costly(as you know) and I really don't want to waste another year of my life in the same job living in my parent's house, as I am young and I believe life is too short to waste it doing things you hate. I thought applying for a research job at this prestigious university which would look good on my application but would bore me to tears. I had an idea of doing some work abroad but a lot of international programs cost an arm and a leg to apply.
  4. So we know for things like ACLS there re algorithms for treatments. Medicine is one giant algorithm. Are there any books or ect. that have algorithms for lung disease or throat diseases for example. I'm a visual learner and I like to draw out charts and use algorithms to figure things out, that's probably why I love Ochem. If there isn't any, I'll make my own but time is always against us PA students. something like SOB (yes/no) , vesicular breath sounds (yes/no) and each one take you down different paths. I'm trying to better organize differentials inside my head basically.
  5. Thought I would start a thread for those accepted to Boston for 2016! I am very excited about this program and am 99% sure I'll be attending! :)
  6. Hello, I am new to this thread. I need all the info I can get. I want to apply to PA school this summer, when does the app season start? I know I have to take the GRE, what book is the best and how many hours do I need to study. I have graduated from FAU in Summer 2012. I have a BA in Biological Sciences.

All A's and B's. ----- I have to go back to school to take Gen Micro, A and P 1 and 2, Interpersonal Communications, I may also take some other classes to prep for PA school. I abt 200 volunteer hours health care and non healthca
  7. When I was at the conference in Toronto this year participating in the Assembly of Representatives, I got a chance to meet the other representatives from TN and we discussed the fact that we don't communicate enough amongst the different programs. I started a Facebook group that I hope will be a means of collaboration and communication amongst the various schools in TN. Check it out: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TNPAStudents/
  8. I will be starting school in June and I was curious about brushing up on some basic material. I was looking for a simple review of A&P probably. I'm not intending on anything super intense, but a refresher probably wouldn't hurt. I looked at the sticky and the "... Made Ridiculously Simple" series was recommended. This post was a few years old so I was curious if there were any new recommendations. Thanks!
