  1. Has anyone taken any online courses at UNE? Do you have any tips to offer? I was recommended by a PA advisor to take an additional anatomy course prior going to PA school. I'm currently taking UNE's Anatomy 1005 course (Anatomy for Medical Professionals) and just took the first exam. I'm a little lost as to how to study for this course (and unfortunately, the professor hasn't been too helpful.) Does anyone have any studying advice for how to approach this course? I'd appreciate any help!
  2. Hello, I am very interested in UNE PA school and was hoping that a current student would be able to provide some information on clinical rotations. There does not seem to be any information online about it. Are the rotations in Maine? Are they set up by the program or do students set them up themselves? Any other info would be great! Thanks
  3. I didn't see anything about this anywhere else in the forum, so I figured I'd throw it out there. At our last EOR one of our professors made an announcement that employers are looking at PANCE scores as a component of an application when hiring new grads. I'd never heard this before, and I was wondering if anyone has come across this anywhere.
  4. Hello! I am new to the forum. I have a question has anyone taken any of their prerequisites at UNE online? I need Organic Chemistry, Anatomy, Biochem, and Genetics. I am hoping to attend Wingate at Hendersonville in North Carolina. :-) I am excited to be apart of this group as I start my journey. I am an older student and would appreciate any advice. Thank you all!!
  5. If there are any UNE or Rush grads out there on the forum, I'm interested in your opinion of your respective program. Did you have a positive experience? Feel well prepared? How were the clinical sites? I was accepted to both and am trying to make a decision between UNE and Rush. My assessment, Rush is a newer program, I think 3 years old? Clinical site locations are likely less well established, but the program has the ability to lean heavily on its giant academic medical center. UNE is 20ish years old, clinical sites are more well established and quality of sites I anticipate would be consistently good (at least decent) Tuition is nearly identical 96k at Rush vs 98k at UNE. Cost of living in Chicago for 30 months is significantly greater than Portland ME for 24 months. Rush is 30 months with the final 6 months dedicated to a chosen specialty. UNE is 24 months, standard 12 didactic 12 clinical. I think this extra 6 month clinical offering at Rush could be huge for my first job. More confidence, less time feeling terrified and out of my league as a dangerous, new, and inexperienced new PA. Ultimately I want to be back west in ID, WA, MT or OR doing ER, urgent care, maybe family med so neither school has regional connections. My heart wants to be in Portland ME at UNE because i liked the faculty, students, and location better. My gut says Rush might better prepare me for my first year of practice and leave me with less anxiety and fear as a sketchy new PA. I expect that 3-4 years into practice I will have found my groove after graduating from either ,and both schools seem well equipped to train good PAs. How real is the first year of practice pucker factor, is it worth it to stay in an expensive city paying an extra 10-20k to mitigate this? I don't ever want to live in a large urban city but should I suck it up and deal with Chicago for 30 months?
  6. Not sure if a thread has been started for this cycle. I applied in early May but haven't heard anything. Has anyone else applied this cycle?
  7. Hi guys, I'm hoping there may be some UNE applicants/students who can help me out. I'm an army medic, just leaving service, with a good bit of HCE and a burning desire to go the PA route. However, I have yet to start my bachelors at UNE. I've been told to go for any major that interests me, and complete prereqs on the side, but UNE's pre-PA track has me concerned. Do you think that majoring in something besides pre-PA, at a school with a pre-PA program, will greatly reduce my chances of being accepted to their PA program? I imagine that they have some quota of pre-PA students that they accept, all official policies aside, and worry that I may be at a distinct disadvantage in this case. Though PA school has been the dream for a long time, I don't really like the idea of a pre-PA bachelors. Would I be better off attending a different university for my bachelors, and then applying for UNE's PA program? Thanks and apologies if this has been hopelessly confusing.

  9. I have been accepted to LMU, however, I have to take biochemistry before starting in May. I enrolled in UNE's online medical biochemistry class and I am currently in week 2 of the course. I was just wondering if anyone had taken this before and how the class was or if you had any study tips. There is a lot if information to go through. Thanks for any help!
  10. Has anyone here taken their pre-requisites and a 2 year school and been accepted to PA school? I've been told by some schools that it makes you a less competitive candidate, but I work full time and the 2 year schools seem to be the only ones offering Friday/Saturday classes. Thanks!
  11. Post here if you've been accepted and plan on attending! Excited to meet all of you :)
  12. I'd like to apply to LLU's PA program but there are a few things I'm missing however here are my stats I have to work with: -I recently graduated in June from CSU San Bernardino -I have a 3.1 Overall GPA -I have a 2.9 Science GPA which I will be taking 2 Behavioral science (Psych) courses and 1 Nutrition to raise my GPA -I was born and raised SDA -I have 2,838 community service volunteer hours (2001-2011) -My pre-req GPA has nothing lower than a B -Within those hours, I have shadowed an Orthopedic PA for 40 hrs However, I do not have any sufficient HCE. I am starting the Phlebotomy program in which I would like to work as a life insurance Phlebotomists (draw blood, check vitals, run urinalysis tests, etc...). Also, I have recently begun volunteering as a Clinical Care Extender for Riverside Community Hospital which is "hands on" experience however, I know 2000 is the minimum to even be looked upon. Is there anything I can do to strengthen my chances?
  13. I'm a pre-PA student and volunteer EMT looking for a shadow opportunity. I am willing to travel and can accommodate any shift. If you are interested please let me know. Thank you, Samantha
