  1. Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and so thankful to have found it in this very confusing time. I have been seriously considering PA school, but I am trying to determine what would be the best route for me. I have a BA in psychology, so I would have to go back to school to get my science prerequisites. I am super excited to go back to school, however I am unsure whether to go back and major in Bio, or just go back as a continuing education student and just take the 30 credits that i need for PA school rather than 60 for the second major. My second dilemma at this time is the patient contact hours. I have home health aide experience, but no primary care experience. I m considering going through an EMT program to be able to get the certification and hopefully the experience and the patient contact to be better prepared for PA school. I am also considering contacting Pas in the area to shadow them, *fingers crossed* What do you guys think? What worked/ didn't work for you guys? Thank you!!!
  2. I've already been accepted in to PA school starting in the fall and have been working in international health since 2011. However, my contract is up at the end of February with very little chance of renewal, so I will essentially be job-less from March till August. I don't want to start a new "career," because I will only be there for about 5 months, but I do need to do something to bring in some money. I don't have any ER, CNA, etc. certifications either. Does anyone have any ideas for where to look for short-term work, besides the typical retail route?
  3. hey everybody I am an undergraduate student with a lot up upper division math, science and bio on the transcript, no bachelor degree. I had heard that you can get a job as a working PA with a Bachelors Degree in PA, a certificate and a passing PANCE score. Is this restricted to specific states or is it not applicable at all? if not then would it be better to earn a Bachelor's Degree in biology somewhere then continue to a school with a Masters in PA or to start out all over again at some of these combined, accepting "fresh out of high school student" schools? I have heard that the combined programs are not as comprehensive and lack some foundation. any input is appreciated!! THANKS

  5. Hi all, I just wanted to check on this, because it seems fishy to me. My employer gave me a packet for medicare enrollment application (reassignment of medicare benefits). They just told me to sign it and give it back. However, I put in my resignation weeks ago and my last day is in 2 weeks. I've worked here for about 8 months. They checked the box "You are enrolling or are currently enrolled in Medicare and will be reassigning your benefits to this supplier for the first time." I get the reason for this, but shouldn't it have been when I first started here? Almost all my patients have medicare. I have a new job that I'll be starting in a few weeks and I don't want to "reassign" my benefits to a job that I'm about to leave. I just wanted to make sure this is appropriate for me to be filling out right before I'm about to leave. Won't I have to submit a termination of benefits directly following this? Thanks
  6. Pacific requires a bachelor's degree to be completed prior to May 1st in the year of entry. Has anyone been accepted that had all of their prerequistites completed, but a bachelor's degree still in progress at the time of application? Thanks for any info! It seems too competitive to have anything less than perfect!
  7. Does anyone have knowledge on the importance of supplemental essays vs. the CASPA statement. As oppose to many of the essays on this forum my personal statement really describes my motivation where as my supplemental essays describe my qualifications. Can any of you speak to the importance of one essay vs. the other?
  8. Could really use some assistance from you guys! My girlfriend was studying communication sciences and disorders, with the intention of then going on to audiology school for the next four years. She is a rising senior in the program and will graduate next April. Just recently, she has been thinking she'd rather go to PA school. How complicated would you guys think this transition would be? Her plan would be to take a year off after graduation to work at a hospital and accrue the 500 hours most schools require. However, she has only taken one semester of biology, one semester of chemistry, and all of her anatomy/physiology courses are specific to speech and hearing. Would really appreciate any thoughts on this, as well as the competitiveness of PA school compared to other graduate programs such as SLP and Audiology!
  9. Hi everyone :) My name is Rosemary Ajnassian. I am currently in community college and I transferring this fall as a Sociology major to CSUN. Currently I am also taking the classes required to apply to PA programs and I am shadowing two PA's in different fields. I am interested in applying to Western University. I was wondering if having a Bachelors degree is Sociology is looked down upon when I will be applying for my medical program since it has nothing to do with the medical field? does it make a difference that I'm going to a Cal State rather than UCLA or USC? and does it look better to work for a PA or does it make no difference if you are only shadowing? Thank you for your responses :)
