bathinabe08 posted a topic in PA Student General DiscussionHey all, im conflicted on two acceptances that i have received and its an honor to be in a position to choose between two acceptances. The question i had for you all is how to differentiate in choosing schools? is hospital affiliations critical in making a choice? is employment after graduation a determining factor? School 1: class size of 40-45, with 100% pance rate for the past three years, hospital affiliations with top names hospitals: Touro College of Manhattan School 2: class size of 65, with pance rate of 90% in 2014, 86% in 2015, 84% in 2016. Mercy College What are your thoughts and has anyone been in this positions and can further shine light on this matter, thank you
Currently in my 50's, I have applied to PA schools for the last two application cycles. I have gotten interviews but only been placed on one alternate list. I am now at a crossroads trying to decide whether or not to apply again. The only reason I would choose not to is my concern that my age at graduation (late 50's) might deter potential employers from hiring me. Does anyone have any insight regarding this and if it is a valid concern or not? Thanks.
Graduated undergrad with a B.S in Kinesiology, low GPA (~2.9). Been working as a Personal Trainer in the fitness field for last 3 years, most of my shadowing hours which about (~100) was when i completed my Bachelors. Ive taken about three pre-req courses i previous didnt have for PA school, avg around a B/B+ for all those classes. What post bacc programs should i look into that would help improve my resume. Looked into 1 yr SMP programs, most people are typically for med school, as most programs require either DAT or MCAT.
