  1. Hi! I finished a draft of my personal statement and would be very appreciative if someone could critique it.
  2. Do all my prerequisite classes have to be 5 years or under? I might as well go back to school and get a bachelors again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I would be willing to exchange statements for editing/critiquing or would like to send mine to someone open to helping me!
  4. Howdy everyone. I am so glad I have found this forum, it has proven to be immensely helpful. However, I am a bit discouraged. I am not a terribly gifted writer and am struggling to piece together a decent story for my personal statement. I will attach what I have written as a rough draft and would really love any and all criticism, guidance, and advice. I will certainly pay it forward once I get it finished. Do not be afraid to be overly critical, I assure I can handle it and welcome all comments. Also, I am appx. 1000 characters over so if you see places I can trim out I am all for it.
  5. Hello all. This is my very first draft of my personal statement for PA school. I touched on a few things that are important to me, such as my mission trip, but I feel like it may have gotten jumbled. I really wanted to focus on my desire to help people before they develop chronic conditions. Please critique and let me know which parts I should stress more and which I could do without. Also, I'm still working on a stronger conclusion. Right now it's 4341 characters with spaces. Thank you. “Can I listen to your heart?” Kayla, the physician assistant (PA), asked the toddler crawling under t
  6. This is my second draft so far, and though it has improved from my first, I still feel like I may have been too vague. Please let me know what you think, and I will gladly do the same for you! Life is a collection of experiences. While some are merely prosaic pieces of today, others carry such significance that they shape our aspirations for the future. These events often influence us to take action, make a decision, complete a goal, or pursue a career. Within the past few years I have collected a variety of experiences, many of which have had lasting impacts on my future goa
  7. Hey guys new member to the forum but have always popped in as a guest to look up advice. Would like some advice on my PS. Any critique/advice is welcome, looking to submit sometime next week, oct/dec deadlines. I am worried i don't talk enough about my experiences and am coming off a little too cheesy.
  8. Hello all! I was hoping to get an opinion or two as to my efforts preparing for PA school application process. First off, I am a medical rep that was blessed to have hands on patient time as a rep in the realm of sleep disorders and another opportunity to work as a rep with chronic lung disorders and neurological disorders that lead to respiratory problems/ failure. I am currently a rep for a home health company where I have taken that knowledge I gained and designed specialty programs for COPD/ restrictive lung disease patients, trying to reduce hospital readmission rates, and ne
  9. Hey Everyone, Thanks in advance for taking the time to help out. This is my very first draft/attempt and I mostly just want to get a sense of whether or not I am headed in the right direction. I know there are several problems (feel free to point them out!). It's short, and lacks some cohesion but like I said, am I heading down the right road or do I need to change gears entirely? Thanks Again! _____________________________________ When I looked down all I could see were dark clouds sweeping up the valley like a tsunami of cold rain and bad memories about to be made; bad news for
  10. I considered a residency. But, then I had the opportunity to speak with HR departments in 3 different hospitals as to the benefits. Basically there's a pay scale for PA's. With no experience you start at the bottom of the scale. With a lot of experience or a residency under your belt, you start higher up on the scale. Regardless, the scale is only so large and therefore with a residency you hit the max cap quicker. Benefits??? You hit the cap in 2 years instead of 3 years. I'm not going to deny the fantastic, dedicated, individual experience one would receive in a residency, but if your goal
  11. recent thread, 3geronamoPA wrote (edited for brevity) .... and pursue issues that I want addressed then I'd be interested. We have a similar thing going on in the Army currently. We have a bunch of our senior people making decisions that will pull PAs out of clinical medicine and into administration for the purposes of career (rank) advancement. They never asked the lowly types that became PAs to take care of patients (God forbid) what they wanted. Now we have a mass exodus of PAs from the Army because they don't want to do Healthcare Administration for 3+ years. which got me to thinking...
  12. Hello, this is my first draft of my personal statement! I would really appreciate any tips you have for me or any criticism. Please be hard on it and be honest! It is over 5000 characters but I have much editing to do and I'm sure I will be taking out quite a bit. Let me know how you think my flow is, I'm a little concerned that it doesn't flow well. Thank you so much for reading it and giving me your feedback! THANKS!!:=D: I loudly called his name over and over, but there was no response. I could see the shallow rise and fall of his chest, which generated a sensation of rel
  13. The group I work for - yes I'm still there - is thinking (the docs all have to vote on this) to hire another PA. Finally! some help! I stayed because they agreed to expand my scope of practice and so I work primarily with 2 MDs in 2 locations. It's some back and forth but I don't mind and I welcome the change of scenery. They threw in a bunch more $$ so I'm sticking around. My main supervising physician wants to have a PA for both locations - so 2 in total. Right now I am working at both. He wants me to stay on his side and the new person to be trained for the other side. I
