  1. To all of the current PA students/graduates out there: What do you wish you considered more when deciding on a PA program? Do you have any regrets choosing your specific PA program and why? For instance, do you wish you focused more on the style of their didactic curriculum, their clinicals, etc? I would love to hear your thoughts! I think most applicants don't realize the importance of a certain factor until they finally attend a program. I would love to hear advice about what you wish you knew or considered before choosing the right PA program for you!
  2. Hi! I was recently accepted into a program that I didn't think I would be too fond of, but I ended up falling in love with the program! I am interviewing at my original top choice on the 13th, and I have been having a hard time deciding what school I would choose if I were to get in to this other program as well.

School A (the one I have already been accepted to) is a 1 hour commute, ( I can't afford to move or get an apartment, I am lucky enough to live with my boyfriend who pays the mortgage). This is the biggest downside to this school. I do
  3. Hello! I hope everyone is doing well and hearing some good news! I have a bit of a pickle and need genuine, kind, and thoughtful input as to how to choose a program. I have been accepted into two programs, but need to make a decision soon. I have talked to several PAs, family members, and mentors all of whom are insightful, but I still can't choose.

  4. Hi guys first time really using a forum, so hopefully I am doing this correctly. Anyways, I just finished my junior year of college and will be applying to PA school come next April, and while I already have a few schools in mind, I am wondering about how important it is to go to school in the state or area you want to work in? This may seem silly, but as someone who stayed local for college I am really looking forward to leaving home for PA school. Should I be looking into rules and regulations of PAs in different states in order to go to school in a state I wish to practice in? Or should I j
  5. I am in my sophomore year of college, currently working on my general Ed. and plan on transferring to my local university in the Fall or in the Spring with an Associate's Degree for Transfer in Exercise Science, and I was wondering what the difference is between a Bachelor's of Science Physician Assistant and a Master's Degree Physician Assistant. From what I've seen and researched so far, the only notable difference is the teaching/administration aspect that is open for those with Masters degrees. I personally would like some input because now is the time to start narrowing out what path to t
  6. I am a nationally registered medic and have been doing this for 5 years. I have an associates degree and was wondering which if any PA programs in the country could I get into without a bachlors degree? I have already looked for this answer for approx 2 days with no luck. Any insight and info will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance - FireMedic9872
