  1. 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. I would love to hear what current students think. 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
  2. Hello! I feel blessed to be coming to you guys with such a problem, but it's been weighing on me and need advice from current PA-S's and PA-C's. I have been accepted to two schools: School A which is 20 minutes away from my current living space and School B which is closer to my parents, but still about an hour away. Schools A and B seem pretty comparable in terms of curriculum, program length (A: 27 mo versus B: 25 mo), PANCE pass rates (A: 97 versus B: 99), tuition (a difference of 3K), and employment rates after graduation. The main differences that I see are that school B is associate
  3. Hey Guys and Girls, I am sure most of you current undergraduates have heard of some of the better PA programs around the nation. Many of you are going to produce competitive PA school applications in the process of hunting for schools. This question is more geared towards people who have been in PA school and experienced life on the other side of PA schooling. That being said, I think the answer is beneficial to most of us undergrads. We know about programs like Duke, Pacific, Emory, etc. Their qualifications are strict and their prestige is evident. However, on the chance that admis
  4. If you can basically get a Bachelors degree in what ever you want to, then why do PA schools even require it. Why can't you just take the pre-requisites and gain HCE and apply?
  5. I have just been accepted to a very reputable school. However, it is one of the most expensive schools in one of the most expensive places to live. It is also a three year program. I want to know if it's worth it to attend a really expensive school now, OR if it's more advisable to wait a year to attend a cheaper two-year program. Waiting a year to attend a cheaper two-year program would mean that I would be graduating roughly the same time as I would if I attend the school that I was just accepted to. Also, does the reputation of the school have any impact on the future salary?

  7. I've been accepted to two schools, one ranking much higher (and costing much more) than the other (on the News & World Report rankings). I have two questions, does anyone have an opinion about the rankings, and does the ranking of the school you attend affect your ability to get the "best" jobs after school? Are graduates from more "prestigious" schools more eligible for more desirable jobs?
  8. Hi everyone: I'm a second semester student at the University of South Alabama in Mobile. This is my second time around in grad school, so I'm familiar w/ financial aid at the grad level, but PA school is its own beast since we are in school 3 semesters a year and cannot work. Currently, our school (like all schools) creates a yearly budget for tuition, fees, books/supplies, health insurance, and living costs. Everyone gets the $20,500 of subsidized/unsubsidized and the rest is made up in GRAD PLUS loans (the total is just over $33K/year). The problem is, the amount they have for our "budg
  9. Hello I am a first year PA student and I am struggling with my gross Anatomy class and cadaver labs. It seems like the harder I study for these classes, the worse my grades get. Obviously, I am doing something wrong. One of my problems is that I study by myself all the time because I always feel like study groups study at a fast pace for me. Therefore, I end up studying by myself and not understanding the material:( I just found one study partner and it seems to help a little. I need to bring up my grade for anatomy ASAP. Any suggestions? Thanks
