  4. So I have been reading Andrew Rodican's "The ultimate guide to getting into physician assistant school". In this book he suggests that you ask someone to be your reference, then write a draft for them, send the letter to them for their approval/edit, and then they submit it. I have chosen to do this with only one of my letters of recommendation. However, writing your own LOR is a lot harder than I thought. Has anyone done this before? Can anyone suggest the best format?
  5. Hey all, I'm new to the site, but I just wanted to let everybody know about a little project I'm doing that I think can really help a lot of people. A little background: I'm a Physician Assistant that currently works in an Emergency Department but has experience in both Intensive Care as well as Neurosurgery. I'm a recent grad (2010) but I got into the habit early of reviewing some material every day, even if it's just for 5-10 minutes. As those of you who are currently working can attest to, it's not easy to work a 12 hours shift then come home and hit the books, especially as a new grad. I found myself getting rusty very quickly. That old saying "if you don't use it, you lose it" certainly holds true! Anyway, I would come home and review and make quick-hit fact index cards and then review them before bed. After a while it became a habit, something I still do to this day. I literally have stacks and stacks of index cards in my office but I found that I was staying fresh by doing this, much more-so than my peers who weren't constantly reviewing. The best part is that it felt effortless because I was only reviewing a couple facts each day, but they stuck. About a month ago I had the idea to bring this idea to Twitter. I started an account (https://twitter.com/boardreviewnow) and each day I Tweet a couple review facts, depending on how much time I have and my schedule. Everything is straight out of Harrison's, CMDT, Tintinalli, PANCE review books, etc. I try to keep everything relevant and focus on the "must know" stuff that is important to both clinical practice and boards testing. I try to include pictures, as well, when I can. I'm NOT affiliated with any organization and NOT not trying to make any money off of this, so I hope this doesn't break the "no advertising" rule. I'm going to keep Tweeting daily medical review whether I have 10 followers or 100,000. I thought this would be a great way to help others review as well as give me a little extra motivation to keep posting as much review as I can. If you guys are interested, follow me on Twitter and hopefully we can all get a little smarter together! p.s. I'm also open to suggestions if you guys are looking for review on a specific topic (neuro, peds, derm, etc).
  6. Hola everyone, I found you all last night and figured I would post just to get some feedback. I am going to apply to several schools (7 to be exact) for the 2014 admission year and was hoping to get some feedback about whether or not I will actually get in. I alternate between confidence and terror pretty regularly. Age at application: 27 BA in History, cumulative GPA 3.2 (complete waste of time) MS in Health Care Admin GPA 3.85ish (I graduate in Decemeber), Thesis: Best Practices for Culturally Competent Care in Oncology Settings 7000+ hours of HCE, mostly in clinic administration areas, foucsing on underserved populations, I've worked with several mid-levels in family practice and onc. 3 month internship at an academic medical center, specifically within an NCI designated cancer center. Rounding several clinical areas, including the OR. Multi-disciplinary service trip to Nicaragua focusing on the public health care system including trauma, women's care, rural health, OB, and primary care Med Term through my employer I will start my pre-reqs next month I took the GRE a million years ago and will be taking it again early next year. I haven't established my goal for that yet. I'm willing to work on my Spanish to increase fluency before admission-if it matters. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks so much! -Meg
